Makeup haul from theBalm, Kat von D, Burt's Bees, Sephora and samples

Makeup haul from theBalm, Kat von D, Burt's Bees, Sephora and samples
In December, I had placed one final order with my friend Shivani, who used to run a venture called Order Makeup UK (where she got any product from any brand from any where delivered to your doorstep, postage, customs et al notwithstanding) before she shut it down :( My order arrived yesterday and, as usual, she had enclosed a tonne of lovely samples. I wish she hadn't shut down her venture. Anyway, here are the items I ordered:
  1. theBalm's Balm Voyage palette
  2. Kat von D primer
  3. Sephora brush
  4. Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomille Deep Cleansing Cream
I have one last batch to be delivered, but that's delayed with low stocks.

I ordered theBalm's Balm Voyage palette when theBalm had their 40% off sale. That's the best way of getting their products. Luckily, Shivani was in the US at the time, so not much by way of postage either.

The Kat von D primer is meant to conceal and prime and I used it today and loved it! It held on to my shadow like no tomorrow and brought out the colour incredibly well.

The Sephora brush will be passed to a new home shortly - this wasn't for myself lol.
The Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomille cleansing cream is a Holy Grail for me and I've reviewed it here.
And now for the samples.
First up, there are the deluxe samples. I tell you, if this girl ran a subscription box, I'd sign up!
  1. Benefit Watt's Up
  2. Lancome Visionnaire (to be passed to Mum. The fiddly thing broke me out like no tomorrow).
  3. Benefit They're Real. I love this mascara and am glad there's another to go around
  4. Macadamia Hair Masque
  5. Lancome Miracle perfume
  6. Chanel Le Blanc Makeup Remover

She also sent smaller samples and sachets, though there are at least two of each if it is a foil sachet. Enough to empty into a pot and go around for a week, that way.

I am super-thrilled about the GlamGlow exfoliator sample. It costs a bomb so I've never tried their products.

And the Rouge d'Armani sampler palette, I'll swatch these for you when I get around to opening the sampler.

I love Amore Pacific and my eyes are now super-dry, so the eye gel comes in handy.
And a cute thank-you note.

I will be swatching theBalm's Balm Voyage palette soon! Along with the Sephora Blockbuster and Too Faced A Few Of My Favourite Things and... oh dear, I need to stop buying till all my pending reviews are over.
