It’s that time of the year again, when Priceline shelves are completely ambushed with the 40% off cosmetics sale!
I’m pretty lucky that my store is always pretty well stocked and not 5 people deep at the Maybelline stand (ah the joys of living kind of regional!) Here’s a few things i’m hoping to pick up in the sale. I may do a little haul post on here after i’ve gotten my goodies as well.
L’Oreal Paris True Match Foundation (RRP $29.95 / Sale Price $17.97) – I haven’t used this foundation for awhile, but I remember quite liking it. My current foundation stash is getting pretty low (yay for downsizing, nay for options) so I thought I’d grab this one again… if my shade is in stock. Some notable mentions to check out – Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation (both formulas), Covergirl Outlast Stay All Day Foundation & the old school Revlon Colourstay!
Models Prefer Soft Touch Mineral Powder in Soft Focus (RRP $16.99 / Sale Price $10.19) – I’ve recently finished up another one of these, so yay timing! This is a supposed dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. I don’t really care if it is or not, I love it. For the drier skins out there it gives you a bit of a glow and keeps your foundation in place a little longer. If you want a bit more coverage the Australis Fresh & Flawless Powders are always a good option as well, I’ve been using mine since my Models Prefer is finished and I’ve been really enjoying it again.
Maybelline Volume Express Colossal Big Shot Mascara (RRP $19.95 / Sale Price $11.97) – This is a newbie that i didn’t even really think of trying until I was talking to my friend Ange and she said it was on her wishlist, I trust her recommendations so I think i’ll grab this!. It’s always a good idea to stock up on mascara during these sales. If I can’t get this one, I’ll be buying yet another Maybelline Lash Sensational (my fave!) or the new version Lash Sensational Luscious. You can’t go too wrong with Maybelline mascaras. Plus, sexy chrome packaging? Hell yeah!
Brow Mascara TBC – My current L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper has seen better days, so time to throw her out and add something new in the collection. I’ve got my eye on a few to try but I think it’ll be between the Essence Make Me Brow (RRP $5.10 / Sale Price $3.06) or NYX Tinted Brow Mascara (RRP $12.95 Sale Price $7.77). I’m open to trying others as well so will be having a look out for something to get in this catagory.
Opallac Gel Polishes (RRP $19.95 / Sale Price $11.97) – I bought the starter kit in the last Priceline 40% off sale. Honestly, this was the best purchase I made all year. I’ve become less of a nail girl over the years and wanted an easy way to do my nails and have them not chip for weeks. This set is amazing (I’ll do a full post one day). I’ll be picking up another base coat and top coat (essentials) and maybe a colour or two.
The next item is something i’ve had my eye on, but it’s definitely a do I need it? will it spark joy? item.
This is the NYX Liquid Suede Trio Pack (RRP $24.00 / Sale Price $14.40). Hear me out – One full size liquid suede @ full price is $14.95 and all 3 of these are full size; I want the shade Brooklyn Thorn (thanks to this video by Safiya) which is in this set but oddly not available as a single buy on shelf. I know i’ll never wear it but I also really really want to own Stone Fox. I’m trying to Kimberly Clark myself and say you don’t need it, don’t buy it. We shall see!
I’ll also be checking out the Essence stand to see if anything new is about, or anything I want to try. With 40% off the stuff on the stand is practically free!.
Ahhhh so there you have it! What are you planning on picking up at Priceline?, or have already hauled?
