Reminder + Update!

Hey ladies! How are you all - good I hope? :)

Sorry I haven't been visiting your blogs, replying to comments or doing anything blogging related recently. Over the next two weeks I have so many uni assessments so I probably won't be able to post anything until then. My midsem break is also coming up so I hope to catch up on everything by then - my apologies in advance!

Also I recently reached over 400 followers on Bloglovin which is a BIG milestone for me, thank you everyone for your support until now! I am so grateful to meet so many lovely people since joining the blogosphere and I do hope there will be a chance to actually meet you in person some day :) Since I am currently on a spending ban and stressed with uni work, I plan on doing my own giveaway sometime later to celebrate this as I haven't done anything since my 100 followers giveaway. Stay tuned for that!

On another note, just a reminder that my HAIR2GO giveaway is ending this Saturday! Enter for your chance to win one of five vouchers - and you will also receive a free goodie pack when you redeem your voucher. If you haven't entered yet I highly recommend you do since HAIR2GO has some amazing products available for great deals.

My MOOTTA giveaway is also ending next Saturday so if you haven't already, enter now! If you love Korean products and anklets then this giveaway is for you. Besides, who doesn't love freebies?

So that's it from me for now. You can follow me on Twitter @vanitycornerx if you feel like chatting or to keep updated with what's happening in my life! Anyways, I shall talk to you ladies soon :)

Have a beautiful week!

Collective Beauty Indulgence

In the last couple of weeks or so I've been making a few purchases here and there and I wanted to share with you what I purchased! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you would probably know what some of these are, but if you don't... well why aren't you (?) and surprise! Sadly I haven't had the opportunity to use any of these products yet since I'm trying to use up all my other products first. Do you ever get these sudden urges of wanting to purchase something and when you do purchase it, they just end up being put aside because there are all these other products you need to finish? In addition to these mini purchases I also have two another big hauls I want to share with you guys.

First off, I will start with the items I purchased from Priceline. Recently Priceline had a 50% off sale off Maybelline products and I tried to take that opportunity to purchase the new Dream Pure BB Cream. As I don't have the time to go in-store, and they're usually out of stock anyways, I placed an order online. If you follow me on Twitter you would already know about my mini rant and disappointment with the customer service of Priceline, and how things were dealt.

In summary the Dream Pure BB Cream was listed as in stock on their website and that was the main reason why I placed an order, along with three other items to make up for shipping costs. The next day Priceline had tweeted that the bb cream was in stock again so I was positive I would be receiving it. Two days later I received an email saying it was out of stock as well as another item AFTER my order had been despatched. I made a complaint to Priceline's Facebook AND Twitter and asked if I could cancel my order since there was no point but they were utterly useless and simply told me to call customer service. After calling them, I was told I wouldn't be able to cancel my order but I could return it HOWEVER I would not be able to receive a full refund (including shipping) because I changed my mind. Regardless, Priceline STILL had the bb cream listed as in stock at that time and the next day which is so misleading! I did not want the remaining items simply because it wasn't worth it including shipping and I could have just bought the items in store. Am I being unreasonable here?

St Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub | Maybelline Colour Show Nail Lacquer in Orange Fix 220 and Blue Freeze 350 | Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
 I purchased Orange Fix for $2.97 RRP $5.95 and Stay Matte Powder for $10.36 RRP $12.95 online and shipping costs $5.95 so essentially I paid more than the full priced combined, who wouldn't be angry? 

Samples to make up for my OOS items? USELESS.
That will be all on my little rant about Priceline. Moving on...

August Empties

Can you believe we're in September already?! I have no idea how this year has gone by so quickly. A new month means another bunch of products I have used up the previous month. In August I seem to have finished a number of hair product samples though no make up, unsurprisingly.

Continue reading to find out what I used up in the month of August!
