Priceline Haul - 40% off Cosmetics

Hey Guys

In case you didn't know already, Priceline is having its massive 40% off cosmetics sale today and tomorrow so the 18th and 19th November. I wanted to get this post up super quick in case you were considering grabbing a few things so you can just have a peak at what I grabbed. I tried to be very restrained as I am trying not to buy too much before my holiday, it is so hard though. The amount of sales on today along is ridiculous! I only purchased the items this morning so this will just be a quick post.

Excuse the quality, I was so excited to do a post about it!

I had seen this pump bottle on Instagram and was thought it would be the perfect thing for my toner as I tend to pour out too much at once. This is just a simple push pump top which should limit spillage and all those kinds of things. This retails for $5.99AU and was not included in the sale.

This powder looked like a possible dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders which retail for $59AU, I was unwilling to part with my money for those but these powders retail for $16.99AU each but were on sale for $10.19AU. I could not decide between the two so I picked up both Luminous Glow and Soft Focus (luminous glow is not listed on the website however!). 

As per usual I had to pick up yet another blush, these looked really cute but I was surprised at how small they are. I grabbed Autumn Calling, all of the shades looked gorgeous however. This retails for $12.99AU but was on sale for $7.79AU. 

I wanted to try a brow powder and wax rather than my typical pencil. I chose the kit in shade medium to dark and inside the compact it contains a wax, powder, brush and mini tweezers! This retails for $12.99AU but was on sale for $7.79AU. 

I wanted to try another cream to powder foundation as it has been a while since I have owned one. I picked up this one by Australis in the shade Nude. This retails for $14.95AU but was on sale for $8.97AU.

 The store I went to was out of stock of my typical Rimmel Stay Matte Primer and so I picked this primer up on a whim. It retails for $13.95AU but was on sale for $8.37AU.

I figured now would be a good time to purchase a backup of the lipliner I have been wearing ever other day. I grabbed the shade 06 Satin Mauve which goes perfectly with their Longlasting Lipstick in shade 06 Barely There! This retails for $2AU (anyone else notice the price increase on essence products?) and was down to $1.20AU. 

Another backup as I have been absolutely loving this mascara. This is the only mascara I have been wearing since I purchased it! It retails for $17.95AU but was on sale for $10.77AU.

OPI Top Coat

I was not aware that Priceline sold OPI products but it must have been fate as my original top coat from OPI has gone a bit gluggy so could not have been better timing! This retails for $10AU but was on sale for $6AU.

Loreal Infalliable 24H Stay Fresh Foundation

Lets just say it, I get sucked in by social media reviews and particularly those on foundation. I could not resist picking this up after reading some very positive reviews on it! I picked up the shade 140 Golden Beige which I am hopeful will be a decent match. This retails for $31.95AU but was on sale for $19.17.

My little terror had to investigate everything ;)

Did you pick up anything in this sale? If you had your eye on something then now is definitely the time to grab it!

90's Lips

Hey Guys

So I jumped on the Kylie Jenner bandwagon a month or so ago and have been completely obsessed with 90s lips ever since. A really cheap alternative is this duo by Essence Cosmetics. A lipliner in shade 06 Satin Mauve and the longlasting lipstick in shade 06 Barely There!. Ultimately you could just buy the lipliner and wear that on its own but I find it a bit too drying for my lips and so I prefer to layer it with a lipstick over the top. 

The packaging of these are fairly standard, silver cap on the lipliner and a black tube with a round circle of the colour on the lipstick which I quite like. They last a decent amount of time as well if you put the lipliner all over the lip rather than just the edges. Just make sure that you prep your lips beforehand if you suffer from dry lips like myself. 

The lipliner retails for only $1.80 AU and the lipstick for $4.10 which is ridiculously cheap for the quality! 

If you are as obsessed with the Kylie Jenner lip as I am I definitely recommend that you check this duo out. I have been trying out a bunch of other cheap alternatives so I will report on those as soon as possible. 

Are you loving the 90s lip look?
