What I Bought From Urban Decay At Mecca Maxima On Launch Day!


Urban Decay in Australia at Mecca Maxima


This is not an ordinary Friday!  It is, of course, Urban Decay launch day!  Exclusively at Mecca Maxima.

I am a diehard UD fan but I wasn’t obsessed enough to line up at 5am.

But I had some free time in the morning before work today so I popped into my local Mecca Maxima – which is in Doncaster Westfield Shoppingtown – around 11am and found it pretty quiet so I spent aaaaages browsing, swatching and contemplating what to spend my monies on…

What I Bought At The Priceline Sale

Aussie ladies, in case you’ve been hiding under a rock, Priceline has been doing one of their infamous 40% off cosmetics sales and today is their last day so head there after work or alternatively, shop online :)

Anyway, I braved the masses today and went into Priceline with Bunty in a pram { yes, I got plenty of death stares as I crashed into ankles :P } and here’s what I bought…

Urban Decay Prices Australia Vs USA

Remember I told you that Urban Decay is coming to Australia online and in shop at Mecca Maxima?  Well, we’re only days away from being able to get our mitts on some UD goodies.

But what about the prices?  Will they be comparable to US prices or will they be sky high?

I did some investigating to compare Urban Decay product prices in Australia at Mecca (where shipping is free with orders over $75), USA and online via Beauty Bay (which does free shipping in Australia for orders over $20) and here is what I found…

Project 100 Pan // Empties 6-10

Do you ever feel like you’re always chasing your tail and there’s not enough hours in the day to do all thing things you need to do?  Sigh.  It is the story of my life.

Anyway, why am I so “woe is me”???  It is Fri-YAY after all!  Have you all got exciting plans ahead for this weekend?

I definitely do and it involves going to see a movie (thanks Nuffnang!) and getting newborn baby snuggles and a whole lot more so I cannot wait.

Okay enough rambly stuff from moi and let’s get on to today’s post which continues on from last week’s Project 100 Pan Empties…

Tried & Tested Trio : Crop Natural Skincare Oils

I’ve been PMS-ing this week, suffered extreme backache plus a mother of all migraines and you will get a moody bi-atchy me.  I hate taking so many painkillers because I feel that they make my head cloudy and I can’t articulate my thoughts properly.  Luckily, I prepared this post earlier…

Some time last year, I received a lovely care package from Crop Natural Skincare.  In amongst the goodies were these trio of oils :-

  • Pure Rosehip Oil
  • Pure Macadamia Oil
  • Pure Argan Oil

I’ve finally decided whether I like them or not so here are my thoughts…

Project 100 Pan // Empties 1-5


project 100 pan empties


True story…

Him :  Look!  I just cleaned out the bathroom.
Me :  ARGHHHH!!!!!  Did you throw out the empty bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel???!!
Him :  YES!  They’re empty!!!
Me :  ARGHHHHH!!!  NOOOOO!!!  I need them for my Project 100 Pan!
Him :  A what??
Me :  UGHHHHH!!!!  Just leave my stuff alone!!!!!!
Him :  But it was getting mouldy!!!
Me :  Don’t throw out any of my stuff again!  *gives Hubby the stink eye for ruining my Project 100 Pan and stomps off*
Him :  *shakes his head in disbelief at his looney beauty blogger wife*

Anyway, as you may have all gathered, I did a Project 100 Pan last year and I may have cheated and bought products before I finished my project, but I also did well over my 100 empties.

I didn’t manage to keep all my empty and used bottles/jars/tubes – thanks to my housecleaning clutter-phobic other half – but I saved most of them to document my journey.  So here’s the first instalment showcasing Empties 1-5…
