Strawberry Net Haul :D

Hey Girlies,

I recently made my first ever purchase from Strawberrynet.com and I must say I was pretty impressed!

You can find some great deals on Strawberrynet and what's even better is they often throw in free products :) As it was my first order with them I was eligible for a free gift and there was another promotion going at the same time so I ended up receiving 2 free products! They also have free shipping to anywhere in the world and my package took less than a week to arrive :)

So what was I buying you ask??

Well.....meet my new baby Dior Amber Diamond. This was my first ever Dior purchase and I have fallen hard for this little baby. It is a gorgeous highlighter which I think would work for any skin tone.

See how shiny and beautiful!!

It was packaged beautifully, in a box and then a velvet pouch
with a protective cover over the powder.

I was first introduced to Dior Amber Diamond from Tiffany at Will Work for Makeup. She raved about it so much, then I saw it popping up all over the blogging community and decided it had to be mine.

So I marched myself down to Myer only to be told by the Dior lady that it would set me back $78.00 I know I know I shouldn't have been shocked but I was because I knew I had seen it online for less than $50. So I promptly marched myself back home and placed my order online haha (sorry aussie economy!)

Look at it!!! So pretty!
Swatched all together first and then individually as appears above.

The 2 free gifts that I received were a Stila Eye shadow Duo in Tatiana and a Calvin Klein Fully Delicious Sheer Plumping Lip Gloss in #213 Gossip. The Stila eyeshadow was my first introduction to the brand and I have to say I am not very impressed with this. It's not overly pigmented and I just wasn't all that impressed with the texture or application of the shadows. Stila definitely has some making up to do for me haha

Tatiana eyeshadow duo

Nothing too special :(


The CK lip gloss is nice but not overly impressive, it is plumping although I am not so sure I believe it actually plumps your lips. It definitely has that tingling sensation however. The colour is hot pink which I like and it is really really glossy.

It felt tingly on my arm haha
And here's my first attempt at a lip photo haha

So in the end I have 1 exceptional product, 1 so-so and 1 flop. I still think I did ok for $47.00! haha

Have you guys ordered from StrawberryNet?? Do you have any of these products??

I have heard great things about strawerrynet! I actually really like Stila products, so I'm sorry you didn't have a great first experience :( but the gorgeousness of the dior highlighter more than makes up for it!! :)

Always wanted to order from them, but didn't trust the site. :) I may order sometime

@Rach It's a great cause, happy to be apart of it :) Thanks!!

@GABY I know I love it so much, so happy I bought it.

@Prettyinthedesert Maybe I just got a dud duo haha I might have to try some more Stila if you really like it. Amber diamond definitely makes up for it!!

@Vintage Makeup Definitely do. I knew of enough people that had ordered from them so I trusted the site and now I have ordered from them I would definitely order again. They package everything really well too.

i've been tempted by the dior highlighter, although the price has always put me off! spending £28 on chanel bronze universal is my limit lol fab pictures! x

Hannah said...

How do you like the chanel bronzer? I have been lemming that for ages! I think it's because of Pixiwoo they make it seem like a miracle product.

It's the most expensive makeup item I own and so far I love it. There's something about the luxury of high class products. Obviously I can't afford to buy them all but I think one here and there is ok haha

Thanks for your comment :)
