Priceline 40% Off Cosmetics Haul!




I don't even know where to begin with this. I had a rough wish list in my iPhone Notes and I got everything on that wish list and then some. LOL. Actually the only thing I didn't get were a few Bourjois Lip Velvets in shades other than the two I own, but after dropping an astonishing $160 (say WHAT?) I exited the store with my tail between my legs in shock and immediately forget about those lip velvets. I actually stopped and checked my receipt, for surely they had made a mistake, but no, everything was indeed discounted, I just vastly underestimated what my total would come to. 40% off is pretty much 50% off when you're as bad at maths as I, so I was just halving everything. Then I got sick of doing that and just stopped adding shit up in favour of putting pretty makeup in my basket, haha. Anyway, I was actually mortified that I spent $160 and felt sick for a good ten minutes afterwards. (During those ten minutes I went to the newsagent and dropped $10 on the latest Elle Magazine to get the free Benefit GWP, lol). Whilst at Priceline I also bought a few things for an upcoming Giveaway but I'm not posting them here, because I don't want to spoil the surprise!




FACE
Revlon Colorstay Makeup in Combination/Oily (110 Ivory) ~ repurchase of staple
L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Longwear Foundation (10 Porcelain) ~ excited to try this hyped base!
Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder (Light Beige) ~ second purchase of this, love it!
Australis Banana Powder ~ will be using this under my eyes to brighten dark circles



NAILS/EYES
Australis Metallix Eyeshadow (Gold Gaga) ~ aah so pretty! If Guns n Roses wasn't sold out I would have got that too!
Essie Nail Lacquer (Play Date) ~ love this shade!
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel (244 Mauve-olous) ~ had to have it.
Essence Ultra Strong Nail Hardener Treatment (not pictured, oops) ~ cheap as chips and my nails need it.



LIPS
Natio Lip Colour (Flame) ~ I don't know why I got this, my mind was glazed over at this point.
Essence Lipliner (Honey Berry) ~ these are so cheap and so good!
Essence Lipliner (Femme Fatale) ~ as above
Maybelline Color Jolt (Orange Outburst) ~needed to try these newbies!
Maybelline Color Jolt (Berry Naughty) ~ this shade spoke to me (it said 'BUY ME!')
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (Amsterdam) ~ "Vincent Vega's in the house! Our man in Amsterdam!"
NYX Intense Butter Gloss 3 Piece Set (Pink Macaroon, Summer Fruit, Cherry Custard) ~ love these and had to add to my collection. So happy to see a trio pack!

That's it, excluding the stuff I bought for a Giveaway! Safe to say I went a little overboard. Did you exercise restraint, skip this sale or go bat-shit crazy like me? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I didn't bother with the makeup sale since that's not my jam (skincare is another story), but I can relate to being crap at math! I failed just about every math exam I did in high school & I'm sure I equated 40% with 50% before lol...hence why I reach for my phone's calculator at those times. Also pretty sure I've dropped a major amount of coin at a sale & walked out thinking "what the hell?".

    1. Oh I should have used my phone's calculator to work it out, haha! I was too busy looking at the notes section on there for my list. Glad it's not just me lacking in maths skills! :)

  2. You shopped like a boss! I'm so lame, I totally forgot about the sale days... Until the day after! The trick is not to think about the money you spent, but the money you saved!

  4. I went as far as buying 2 of the same things that use on a daily basis. So worth it though.

  5. I was restrained this time around but I am exactly the same as you, 40% close enough to half off, right? That bill shock feeling at the register is the WORST. I know some people be like - "oh, I didn't realise I spent that, here, I'll leave this and this thanks" but I am always too polite and slink out with my overspent goods in hand, haha.

  8. Lovely choices!
    I was very restrained, I spent $12 on three Essence eye liners and a lip liner. I wandered around but there wasn't much that caught my eye, clearly I'm unwell.
