ASOS Haul!

A few days ago I made my first ASOS purchase! Yay! 

Due to popularity, ASOS has announced to open the inaugural ASOS Australian online store in September 2011! So, you needn't worry about converting pound to Aussie dollar!

The great thing about ASOS is they offer free standard shipping worldwide and I received the parcel in no time!

ASOS order placed on 23rd August 2011
ASOS order dispatched on 24th August 2011
ASOS order received on 31st August 2011

After I placed my order I received a notification telling me that I would receive a tracking number, however, I didn't receive any other e-mails from ASOS. I wasn't too fussed about this as I  received my parcel after 6 business days. Now that is super quick and efficient service!

L-R: Illamasqua Gleam Cream, Intense Lipgloss in Mistress, Pure Pigment Loose Eye Powder in Ore.
I've recently found my new love for Illamasqua (I've talked about my first Illamasqua haul a couple of weeks ago), so I couldn't pass on purchase more Illamasqua products from ASOS. I've read so many blog reviews and swatches of Illamasqua's most coveted products, so I ended up buying 3 prodz.

In addition to the Illamasqua products, I also bought a couple of dresses. I absolutely LOVE the dress styles from ASOS that I wanted to buy a bunch of clothes, however, wasn't too sure about sizing, since this was my first purchase. The site has a sizing chart to follow, which I found useful. I ended up getting two dresses which fit just right! Phew!

Have you made any purchases from ASOS recently?
What do you think of Illamasqua's Ore Pigment, Mistress Intense Lipgloss and Gleam Cream?



  1. I've been looking at the Illamasqua makeup on too. Still not sure if I wanna get them.

  2. @♥mynameisnur♥ I spent a lot of time deciding and managed to narrow all the Illamasqua products in my cart down to 3 as I spent so much on my first Illamasqua haul =)

  3. Wow, the items were shipped so quick! I was just browsing the Asos beauty section online last night and saw some Illamasqua products on sale and I was so tempted!

    Looking forward to your swatches~

  4. @PopBlush I've never received a parcel outside Australia so quick before, so I'm really happy with the service from ASOS.

    I will definitely post up swatches soon! ♥

  5. Love love love Asos! Been buying from them for a while now! Can't wait for the Aussie store to open as previously they weren't able to ship all items such as specific makeup products

  6. @joyjoyc oh! I didn't know specific products were excluded for us Aussies!
