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?

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!

Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot Mascara

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.

NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick Trio

Image from Priceline

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?

weekly makeup deals

 

Back with another roundup of Weekly Makeup Deals! Can you believe we are already in March? Holy crap this year is going quickly! March however means Autumn has begun in Australia, and this is my favourite season! I can’t wait for it to start getting cool and the jumpers/jackets/layers to come out. Ooooo Yeah!

I did a massive makeup cull this week, I was planning on filming it for my YouTube but I just wanted to get it done. I still have everything I culled (bar some oldies I threw out) so I might try and compile some sort of blog series on it on the weekend before I let my friends rummage through my stash.

Anyway, onto makeup you can buy cheap 😛
