I haven't done a beauty haul post in ages. I've been trying to save money by cutting down on my beauty purchases. But not being able to buy any products got quite depressing, so I thought I'd treat myself to a few things!
I ordered these Shiseido Maquillage products from apopofkawaii.com, my go to shop for Japanese products.
I bought their Moisture Rouge Lipstick in RD336 and a refill of the Design Cheek Color in 80.
The packaging of the lipstick is wonderful. I love the shiny pale pink/lilac cap!
I've had this blush shade before, and have been using it for the last 2.5 years, so I only had to buy the refill. This is one of my favourite blushers ever. It gives the cheeks to most lovely radiant flush.
Swatches of the 4 individual shades:

Sorry for the above swatch. I must agree, it's the crappiest swatch ever. I will do an FOTD post with a review on these products sometime in the future so you can get a better idea of the shades.
I've kept hearing great things about Mii Cosmetics. They have been featured in numerous magazines as well as various blogs. I've been wanting to get my hands on these products for a while, but found it extremely difficult as they were only stocked in specific spas around the country. However, they were recently made available online at http://www.gerrardinternational.com/
I have to say, I really like this website as it gave me free next day delivery AS WELL as a free gift!
I bought the Moisturising Lip Lover in Smile
Uplifting Cheek Colour in Kissed
Luminous Tinted Moisturiser
The tinted moisturiser was bought as a gift for my mum as the mii skin products come in shades too dark for me. My mother plays golf ALOT so is nice and tanned.
The blush is a super pretty shade or bright pink. It looks a lot less bright (and more subtle) on the cheeks.
The lipstick is a gorgeous petal pink shade. Am really happy with my choice of shade (as shopping for makeup on the internet can sometimes lead to nightmares!)
Here are swatches of the (L) blush and (R) Lipstick:
As with the Maquillage products, I will do an FOTD with these products when I next get some free time.
Here's the free gift I got with my purchase! It's a full sized Dramatic Powder Finishing Brush.
The brush is of great quality and feels so soft on the skin.
