Priceline 40% off Haul!

Hi guys!

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! ><

Priceline 40% off cosmetics

My humble Priceline haul!

 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:

What’s in the kit: Undercover Airbrush Mineral Primer, Natural Mineral Cover, Mineral Bronzer, Mineral Finishing Veil, Kabuki Brush

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 :)

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet 07 Nude-ist

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.

Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain Crush

Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in 005 Crush

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

Revlon Balm Stain in 005 Crush

Crush when swatched

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

Review: 3CE Blush and Joey Healy Brow Stucture Set

Good morning beautiful people!

Today I’m going to do my first beauty review on Honeybunnysoph. I bought two items from Luxola a few weeks back and received them before my trip to Singapore. I didn’t get an opportunity to try them out so I brought them with me to Singapore :)

Presenting to you the 3CE Blush in Love Filter and Joey Healy Brow Structure Clear Set! I’ve featured the two free gifts that came with my purchase in the picture, a sample size Klarity Lasertox CC Miracle Lotion and 1 ml Dr. Jart Anti Hairloss Cleanser. These will not be included in my review today.

I love how simple the packaging of the 3CE Blush is. It is contained in a beautiful smooth round black case with a clear cover.

3CE Blush in Love Filter

Love Filter is a beautiful shade of peach and would be most flattering on fair skin. It is a matte blush and although it is fairly pigmented, the light peach colour gives a very natural flushed look when applied on the cheeks. This is how it looks like on my skin:

Swatch of Love Filter

My skin has gotten somewhat tanned from the summer in Australia so the colour of the blush does not look very flattering when I swatch it on my arm. I used it on my face during the first day of CNY visiting and this is a close up shot of how it looks when applied:

Love Filter on me

It might look a little faint from the picture because it is quite pixelated, but there is a subtle shade of peach pink on my cheeks. I love how it looks so natural on my face and I feel that is what a blush should do. When applied properly it should give a nice flushed look instead of looking like the make up was done in a room with poor lighting (hence overdoing on the blush). When my tan fades off towards winter I can see myself using this blush very often as it would be a little more visible on my skin.

Joey Healy Brow Structure and a pretty little leather pouch

I was pleasantly surprised to find that my Joey Healy Brow Structure set came in a beautiful leather pouch! This is my first product from Joey Healy and also the first time an eye product came in a pouch for me. It isn’t anything too fantastic but it does look pretty luxe and edgy and I know I will find many uses for this pseudo freebie :)

I’ve only used this brow structure once and in my hurry I forgot to take a photo of how I look with it :( As this is a clear gel, I used it on my brows after filling my eyebrows with my Kate Eyebrow Kit. I have not used brow gels before and I’m amazed by how much definition this product gave my brows but yet still made them look natural! I had thought brow gels would be sticky and a little heavy but this Joey Healy Brow Structure set was so lightweight! I was also out in the sun and heat for a fair few hours and when I got home my brows were still in place. I’m pretty impressed with it and would definitely be using this more often going forward.

On-the-go make up bag idea

This is probably how I will be using my free pouch, to fit my make up items for on-the-go touching up because my current pouch is a little too big. Always good to have a pouch that takes up lesser space in my bag :)

Have you used any of the products I’ve reviewed today? Or maybe you have heard positive/negative reviews on them from elsewhere? I’d love to hear what you think!

Hope you enjoyed reading my first beauty review. As always, you can subscribe to my blog or follow me on Instagram (@hunnybunnysoph) for more beauty and lifestyle updates. I am also on Bloglovin for any of you who are active on the site. Have a lovely rest of the weekend!

Peace,
