Low Budget Makeup Haul!


Hi guys! For some reason I'm not as excited about buying new makeup lately, although I will always love applying makeup and wearing it. Even though new releases are not catching my attention, I still have to re-purchase back-ups of my staple makeup items, so here's a very budget friendly drugstore brand makeup haul, where the aim was to stock up on my every day eye makeup items. I also got some extra stuff I needed while I was there. Both Chemist Warehouse and Priceline were having sales, so everything here was at a bargain price!




Chemist Warehouse had 50% off Maybelline (yassss!) so I picked up my fave eyeliner, the Maybelline Masterliner in Black. This was $5.99, usually $12.50. I was going to get two of them, but then I saw the Maybelline boxed Kit for $7.00 which contained a Masterliner eyeliner,  Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara and Eyelash Curler! Just a dollar more and you get two bonus items... score!

I also spotted the Maybelline Master Precise Skinny eyeliner and Maybelline Brow Precise Micro Pencil, both of which I've never tried, but I thought at half price, now is the best time to give them a go! Also, it's really hard to get defined wings with the Masterliner as the end rounds out after a few uses, so hopefully the Skinny pencil comes in handy there.

I spent $26.37 at Chemist Warehouse and the receipt tells me I saved $38.53 (woo hoo!). At first I was like, whaaaaaa? because everything was 50% off, but then I saw the boxed Kit was originally $24.95, down to $7.00. Bitch can shop.

The eyebrow pencil I swear by, Ardell's Pro Brow Mechanical Pencil was actually on special (this rarely happens) at Priceline, so I obviously got two. Also, it's not stocked at my local Priceline and can be hard to find, so this was a no-brainer.

I can't find my makeup pencil sharpener at the moment and all my nude lipliners are super blunt, so instead of doing the normal thing and buying a new sharpener, I bought two new nude Essence Soft Contouring lipliners instead (Nude Painting and Lost In Love). Don't judge! Bargain buy recommendation alert! You can't go wrong with Essence lipliners; they perform well, the formula is great and they are only $2.00 each. Get on this, people! I also picked up an Essence Kajal eyeliner while I was perusing the Essence stand, because why not?

  1. I'm totally into brow pencils now for the first time in my life ... due of course to my increasing age and somehow less hairs in the brows and more grey ones. So the brow pencils make a huge difference to how my brows look. I'm always keen to find the best brow pencil option possible so might try the Ardell's Pro Brow one that you mention. Thank you! #TeamLovinLife

  4. Great bargains! I think there are things you can definitely buy at bargain prices. It's a bit the same as food and other products. I'm happy to buy cheap or home brand flour or sugar and the like, but other things you spend a bit more on! #teamlovinlife

    1. Exactly right! It's just a matter of trial and error what you can skimp on and what you shouldn't!

  5. I agree, I am feeling a bit of makeup fatigue from all the new releases happening almost every week.
    I do need to get my hands on more Essence products as their mascaras are really good!

  7. Yay for bargain shopping! I actually love hearing and seeing what budget makeup other beauty lovers are buying and especially rebuying as these are affordable for most people unlike the high end makeup I keep seeing on my IG feed!

  8. Great bargains! I need to get better at checking out the sales. I don't wear makeup often (only when I go to the office) but I always run out just before or just after the sales, ha! If I plan ahead I can do what you did and take advantage of the sales and have a spare ready when I need it.


    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend! It will be a quieter one here as we are all a little under the weather unfortunately, winter bugs have hit!

  9. Bargain! Just dropped $100 on replenishing teen daughter's make up supplies. That was everything though. She was out of most things. So I guess I'm glad she's happy to buy from KMart and Priceline. #teamlovinlife
