So if you don’t already know, Priceline had a 40% off all cosmetics sale on Tuesday and Wednesday last week and that sent many of us Australian beauty enthusiasts crazy in the shops. I must be one of the last few beauty bloggers to share my haul with everyone and I’m so sorry for being so slow with it! ><
I got quite a few items in this haul: Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in Light Beige, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser for Dark Circles concealer in Medium, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 07 Nude-ist and the Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Crush. I actually also got a Nude by Nature Mineral Powder Starter Kit in Medium (last on the shelf! yay!) and I totally forgot to take a photo of it! I’m so terrible :( But here’s a photo of the kit and what it contains:
The Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream and Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser for Dark Circles (that was quite a mouthful!) have been widely raved and reviewed by beauty bloggers around the world so I won’t go into too much detail about them. I did swatch the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream before getting it and I was pretty impressed by its consistency, so I’m excited to see how it looks on my face :)
Moving onto the lip products, I was so happy that I got the last brand new tube of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 07 Nude-ist! Don’t you guys just love that feeling when you manage to score the last item on the shelves?? It’s even better when that item is on 40% off!
I first saw this shade on a beauty blogger’s MOTD look and I thought it would make a beautiful everyday lip colour, especially during the colder months that’s coming up. This is how it looks like when swatched:
My other lip product is also one that I bought with the expectation that I’ll be wearing it heaps when Autumn/Winter arrives in the Southern Hemisphere.
This is my first Revlon Balm Stain and at first I thought that Crush would be a bit too deep for my lips but after swatching it in the store, it didn’t come out as heavy as I imagined it to be. I wanted to get a lip colour that I don’t already have and this was also the last brand new item on its shelf so that was probably the deciding factor for me :D
It looks sort of like a nice plum shade on my skin but is not too dramatic so it’ll be great to wear this during Autumn/Winter on a daily basis.
I can’t remember the individual prices I got all of these for, but I do know that these cost me about A$80 altogether and my Nude by Nature Mineral Kit was about A$35 down from its original price of A$60! Full priced makeup is SO EXPENSIVE in Australia it just makes me sad when I hear about how much you guys can get Maybelline and MAC for in the States :(
Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed this little haul! I’ll be sure to feature these products in my MOTD looks and let you know what I think of them :)
Have a great week ahead! <3
