What I Bought In The Priceline 40% Off Cosmetics Sale

 

If you saw my previous post, I was talking about my shopping list for the Priceline 40% off cosmetics sale (sadly, now over). I didn’t end up getting everything on my list and subbed out a few things.

I actually had more in my basket but then told myself, do I really NEED another matte mauvey brown lipstick (Covergirl Katy Kat Matte in Catoure). It actually turns out my instinct to not get it was spot on because they are now 1/2 price this week.

So here are the products I did actually end up getting –

L’Oreal True Match Foundation in N2 – This was on my list and luckily the stand was pretty well stocked and I got my shade. I’m wearing it today and so far am really really happy with it!

Sensationail Gel Polish in Sugar Plum & Heirloom Lilac – I originally had the Opallac gel polishes on my list to go with my Opallac kit, but I saw these on clearance for $7.00 and the bargain hunter in me decided to go with these instead. It looks like they are discontinuing this line so good idea to stock up (I may try and grab more this weekend at this price). I didn’t get the 40% discount on these but they were cheap enough.

Maybelline Master Strobing Stick in 200 Medium – Impulse purchase alert! I swatched this on my hand and thought it was such a nice subtle highlight that I could chuck under my foundation (or over). I got the shade 200 Medium because it was goldy and the lighter shade was more pinky. I’ve discovered recently that goldy highlighters definitely suit me more. Another product i’m wearing today and really like, I usually go for a bit more BAM with my highlighter but this is just a nice subtle glow.

Essence Make Me Brow in Blondey Browns – This was on my list and so damn cheap! Wearing it today and can definitely see how people compare it as a good dupe to the Benefit Gimmebrow (at a fraction of the price).

Maybelline Volume Express Colossal The Big Shot Mascara – I love trying the new Maybelline mascaras, I’m going to give this a week or 2 before I give a verdict because I like my mascaras to dry out a bit but so far it gave me a bit of volume and length so yay!.

Essence Satin Blush in Satin Love – This was an on the whim purchase. I’ve been steering clear of my regular coral blushes and moving towards more nude/mauve/rosey blushes and this fit the bill. I wore it today and holy pigmentation! I went a touch overboard and had to get some intense buffing in to get away from clown territory eeeeek!. The shade however, is pretty but next time i’ll be not so heavy handed.

Essence Matt Touch Blush in Rose Me Up! – Again, another blush in the colour family i’m currently drawn to. This is a pretty matte blush and looked pretty subtle when swatched. Looking forward to trying it out.

That’s it for another Priceline sale! (well until theres a good catalogue sale lol). I still had a voucher from christmas so put this towards my purchase and ended up only spending $35 of my own money.

Did you pick anything up in the sale?
