Nonpareil Boutique Haul

Quite some time ago I took advantage of 20% off purchases from Nonpareil Boutique (I say quite some time because standard shipping from the US is painfully slow).

Nonpareil Boutique is a great one stop shop for drug store brands NYX, Milani and Wet n Wild, just to name a few and they also stock selected products from Urban Decay, NARS and Tarte.

What I Purchased….

Wet n Wild Colour Icon 8 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Comfort Zone

This palette contains 8 complementing shades each clearly marked as browbone, eyelid, crease and definer – quite fool proof.

As with most Wet n Wild palette reviews I now understand the hype surrounding these shadows, for a cheapie the colour payoff is amazing and the consistency of the shadow is silky smooth. Although I only received this haul today, I cannot really comment on the durability however I’m sure teamed with a primer these shadows will go the distance.
Look A: Using left side of palette

Look B: Using right side of palette
Swatches left and right down the palette eg. browbone L and browbone R

Milani Baked Blush in Berry Amore

This is a second addition to my Milani Blush collection. I chose Berry Amore for its pretty swirl of berry pinks and gold shimmer.  Again, Milani blushes are amazingly pigmented and soft to apply – great value for approx $7.99(USD).

NYX Bronzer & Blusher Combo in Phi Phi Island

Taking me back to my 2008 Thailand holiday, this combo cries the beach, sun tans and cocktails. Containing a bronzer and coral blush both with gold shimmer, these colours will look great together as a blush and contour duo.

NYX Round Lipstick in Twist

Yes, another lipstick to add to my growing collection. I’ve posted about NYX Round Lipsticks before and they are another great product for their price point. I chose Twist because it was around $1.00(USD) and the colour looked quite nice from the online swatch. Just a side note the online swatches can be deceiving as most often the lipstick I receive swatches different to what is online however I’m still happy with the colour twist, will look great as a casual evening lipstick.

What have you hauled throughout March?

  1. I adore that Wet n Wild palette! I own all three, and comfort zone is definitely my fave! You have gorgeous eyes btw! xx

  2. uh ohhhh I feel an order coming on :-) Love what you got I have the W'n'W palette and love it but I am dying for some Milani

  3. That palette looks soooooo good! And the colours look amazing on your eye. Nice haul!

  4. Just wondering exactly how long it took to receive your goodies? I'd love to add some Milani to my collection!

  5. @markedbeautyblog/@aprettyobession/@Angela Thanks ladies! Milani and WnW definitely make some stand out products. Only problem is now I want more!

    @Vita shipping can take anywhere from 10-30 days, unfortunatly in my case (this time) it took the whole 30 days and in the past it has only taken 2 weeks. You can also purchase milani from Crush Cosmetics however you will be paying a little more at $14.95(AUD) a blush.

  6. It's getting harder and harder to resist the Comfort Zone palette! Nice haul, lovely. x

  7. Looks like you got some great stuff, that Wet & Wild palette looks great.

    I always find it best to google swatches of the lipsticks so you know what colour you're really buying!
