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

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

Accidental Shopping

Hello again!

So it seems like I’ve got more goodies to share with everyone again – all thanks to this!

Capture Priceline Promo

Priceline Promotion

Priceline was having a 40% promotion over 28 and 29 January 2015 and I had wanted to get a non-greasy moisturising lotion to replace the greasy one I had in the office, so I made a note to visit Priceline after my gym session.

Upon reaching Priceline, I saw that there was a neat little crowd within the Skincare section, predominantly Mainland Chinese and Taiwanese ladies, with their boyfriends/husbands hanging around behind awkwardly trying not to block the aisle. They were specifically huddled over the shelves of Trilogy, Sukin and A’Kin products which were on the opposite side of my Cetaphil shelf.  I’ve heard of these products before but have not used them before nor have any friends who are users of these products.

So the curious/nosy (read: kaypoh) Singaporean in me led me to squeeze through the little crowd and check out what the hype was about. I also noted that there was a poor sales assistant amongst the crowd who was having issues trying to stock up the shelves and I could tell she was getting exasperated! Poor thing. After half an hour of poring over product descriptions and sampling tester products, I eventually left with these:

My Priceline skincare haul!

I got a Trilogy Rosapene Night Cream, Trilogy Eye Contour Cream and a box of Nügg Face Masks just for fun. I almost got a bottle of Trilogy Rosehip Oil as well but I figured I should try out the two Trilogy products and see what it does for my skin before getting another item from the same brand. Upon checking out product reviews on the internet the next day, I was very pleased to find out that these have been highly rated by many users in Australia and overseas. I know my sequence of events is not in the right place but I didn’t have time to be checking out reviews while being stuck in the crowd haha.

My mom has been trying to get me into the habit of using night creams and eye creams to combat my aging skin but I haven’t been successful in keeping the routine going because 1) it is such a hassle, 2) I am lazy and 3) I hate the heavy, oily feeling that night creams do to my skin. But users of the two Trilogy creams I bought have commended them for being lightweight and refreshing, above all the other benefits they got from the products and I’m now really excited to try them out! I’ll do up a post once I’ve started using them to see if they are really like what the reviews say about them :)

I eventually left Carousel and came home with these:

So much white!

You know how some of us go through phases in which we seem to be more attracted to clothes of a particular colour? Like a colour of the moment? I think white is my colour of the moment now… I seem to be checking out too many white apparels!

Anyway, I got the two tops from Valleygirl which was next door to Priceline, cause they were having a 50% sale on ALL their apparel. How could I give that a miss? These two tops only set me back by a mere $6.45 so I was pretty proud of myself. As for the mules, I got them from Famous Footwear as I was walking to my car to leave Carousel. Got them for only $20 and they’re sooo comfortable! Mules are great because they don’t give the back of my ankles blisters and they’re easy to put on and take off. I’m already planning to bring them back with me when I return to Singapore for Chinese New Year in about 3 weeks time. Will put up an outfit post when I wear them in Singaz! I’m kinda excited about the trip cos I haven’t been back for CNY in about 3 years. Hello bak kwa and pineapple tarts! Stay tuned :)

Peace,
