|Who can resist 40% off Maybelline? Not I!|
Hi guys! A while back Priceline had another sale (seriously, when is there not a sale happening at that place?), namely 40% off the entire Maybelline range. There are a few Maybelline products that are staples in my makeup routine, so I went in to stock up. I got everything in the photo above, plus a third Masterliner and a Fit Me Concealer, both of which I began using immediately and didn't include in the photograph. I also thought it was the perfect time to try out a few products I hadn't used before!
I've read some glowing reviews of the Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation, so I'm very interested to see how it performs on my skin. This is possibly a case of bad timing though, because for the last few days I've been trialling a MAC Pro Longwear foundation sample and I'm madly in love with it. So the Fluid Touch now has big shoes to fill!
|Shine-Free Foundation Stick reminds me of Benefit Fake Up Concealer!|
I got the Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara out of curiousity, and I don't even know why (besides it being cheap) I bought the Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation Stick because I never use the stick ones! I'll be interested to see if it mattifies my oily/combination skin and cross my fingers it's not too drying.
|Oh My! So pretty!|
I've just tried on the Vivid Rose ColorSensational lipstick and I'm wondering if I even swatched this in-store? It is super bright, so they are not kidding on the 'Vivid' front! I will reserve judgement until I've had a chance to rock this shade with a full face of makeup. I just had to get the Master Hi-Light Hi-Lighting Blush in Pink Rose because it looked so pretty and I don't really have anything like this in my collection. Now I just have to work out how best to use it!
Rant Alert! Priceline's over-zealous packaging is again shitting me to tears. I know they have their reasons, and some of those are for the benefit of the customer, but still, there has to be a better way. They tightly seal products with sticky tape that is wound around so many times that it's impossible to find the end to remove it. Every time I buy from Priceline, I spend a good ten minutes attempting to remove all the tape to get the products open. You can get nice sticky tape that doesn't leave hideous sticky marks on products, but they don't use this kind. They use the kind that actually rips some of the finish off the product. This is the second time I've bought a Maybelline lipstick only to have the sticky tape pull off the silver finish from the bottom of the tube. Priceline, your excessive use of sticky tape to seal products is annoying, time-consuming, nail-ruining (yes, I broke a nail trying to get some of it off) and just plain wrong when it wrecks the aesthetic of the brand new product I just paid money for at your store. See below for the photos to prove it. Rant over.
