Recently Priceline had another one of their all-so-famous 40% off sales, they do these pretty regularly throughout the year I reckon, with makeup, skincare, and haircare, this time it was makeup! I went in with the intention of just picking up another bottle of makeup remover, nek minut…. here’s the damage LOL.
My friend told me great things about this makeup setting spray, so I decided to get it while it’s on sale! I’ve never tried any makeup setting sprays before, so hopefully this’ll be a good one!
These weren’t on sale, but I lost the last pair I had and needed to replace them haha 😦 I really like these falsies though! They add some nice volume and length without looking too cray! Always a fan of the invisible band, and they don’t weigh my natural lashes down too much!
These are probably my favourite liquid eyeliners from the drug store in Australia. Although I picked up a bajillion eyeliners when I was overseas, you can never have too many backups LOL. And at $8.80 they were definitely a steal!
I haven’t really had a lot of experience with CC cream, but have heard great things about this one! When I swatched it on my hand in the store, it felt quite light weight. I don’t know if the colour will actually match me, since the lightest shade they had left was 33 rose beige, so yeh, hope it matches! My friend said this gives the same amount of coverage as her L’Oreal True Match.
Haven’t heard much about this mascara, but the brush looked pretty interesting, so I decided to pick it up! I forgot whether I picked the waterproof formula or just the normal one 😦
I recently started using the Tarte Light, Camera and Flashes Mascara, and oh dear God it’s waterproof for realz. My regular makeup remover just won’t do the job. After some googling, I found two makeup remover that’s great for waterproof mascara, Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover, and its drug store counterpart – the one I picked up, because I wasn’t about to go ahead and spend $50 on a makeup remover haha. I have been using this and am super happy with the result! It does leave a little bit of an oily residue, but it’s nothing a cleanser can’t get rid off!
This is my everyday makeup remover. I don’t understand the science behind micellar water, but I’m so glad that it’s a thing now! I have tried Bioderma before, and to me, these two give identical results. The Garnier one is definitely a lot more wallet-friendly, being about a third of the price.
I have been using Benefit Porefessional as my primer since I started using foundation, and have tried a sample of the Garnier Perfect Blur Smoothing Base Perfector (Gosh that’s a mouthful), it had a very similar texture to Porefessional, both being silicone based I believe. Basically, it makes your skin feel super smooth and matte, and hides any pores, fine lines, scars, and all that shabam. So yeh, at half the price of Porefessional, why the hell not?! Oh yeh, this wasn’t even on sale, I was just on a roll.
|L’Oreal Color Riche Eyeshadow Monos in 201 Nude – $12.00
I couldn’t find a link to this on the Priceline website o.o But yeh, just a nude metallic-y eyeshadow! For my everyday makeup, I always go for an all over the lid colour, and I usually go for greys because earthy tones don’t look great on me unless I spend some serious time blending, but yeh, this one’s kind of taupe-y and had a nice sparkle when swatched yay 🙂
Last but not least, lip products yay! I have been hearing some great things about these matte lip creams from Australis, and I gotta say, I’m so happy to see a brand that is exclusive to Australia coming out with so many affordable products that is great quality too! AC On Tour I’m gonna get my hands on you LOL. I picked up three colours, Mi-a-mee – peachy salmon-y pink, Ro-ma – light blue-toned pink, and Buda-pash – dark brick red. I’m so excited to try out Buda-pash now that it’s finally cooling down in Melbourne!
I’m happy with all the products I picked up this time round, sometimes it can get kind of overwhelming because of the amount of people in the stores and all those empty racks in Priceline, but yeh, let it be known that I hardly ever buy new makeup – lip products and nail polish aside, my two weaknesses haha – so yeh, gotta make the most out of these sales!
Did anyone else pick up some great things at the sale? Let me know in the comments below! 🙂
