Its the most, wonderful time…. of the year!
Its that time again where the holiday palettes start coming out, our bank accounts start crying and our favourite places start having some major sales! The 18th and 19th of November saw the massive cosmetics sale at Priceline – the two day event offers 40% off all cosmetics in store and online. A lot of people prepare for this sale (myself included) and I’m going to show you what I got and what I wasn’t able to pick up because it was already sold out!
I’ll start out with my wish list – what I was wanting to pickup the most:
- Models Prefer soft touch powder/s
- Maybelline Color Drama Lip pencils (I really wanted the nude)
- Face of Australia Translucent Powder
- Face of Australia Illuminator – Angle Mist
- Face of Australia Face Base Primer
- Australis Fresh and Flawless Pressed Powder (pale shade)
- Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
- Australis ‘Show some cheek’ Blush
- Sally Hansen Nail Polish – Clear
- Savvy Blush
- Physicians Formula Liquid ‘Syrum’ Liner
- Sally Hansen eyelash curler
- Bourjois 16hr liquid liner
- Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation
With that in mind, I set out shopping! I went with my two best friends Zoe (newbytobeauty) and Sarah (pastel sparkles) which was so great because we’ve been swamped with uni work lately and haven’t had a chance to hang out and go shopping all together in a long time. I was so excited to just be around two of my favourite people. We went to the city to go to the Priceline stores there. We went to a smaller one off Galwer Place in the city thinking that no one would think to go there – we were wrong. For the little ‘out of the way’ store it was pretty busy. I got hit with massive anxiety and got all frazzled and only picked up a few things from that store, although keeping in mind we were going to another Priceline afterwards. There were some things in this store that were sold out. Like: 1, 2, 4 and 12 from the list above. I’d decided I’d pick up the Bourjois liquid liner another time because I’d just got the Physicians Formula one and I’ve got a few at home that I love inc. my inglot gel liner. ❤ We went to the register and I had the chance to use my ‘priceline cash back’ coupon thing so I got $10 off the total price. YAY. It was time to rehydrate and chill because it was actually 37 degrees that day. We went to BOOST JUICE to get a Tropical Crush (the best thing ever) then we decided to go to the other Priceline in the Myer Centre. I picked up the rest of my list except for the Savvy blush because I’d not seen one I’d really wanted (they’re decently priced normally anyway) and the Face of Australia illuminator was sold out here too, sad times for me and I’d actually forgotten about the FOA Primer. It was time to leave the city, get out of the heat and play with all our new purchases! Zoe and I got a bus back to uni together and Sarah went to catch her train home. On the way back to uni was horrid, the bus was packed, I was sweating from places I didn’t even know I had! BUT Zoe and I ended up going out to dinner together because it was obviously way too hot to cook anything!
I ended up going back to Priceline on the 19th (day two of the sale) with my sister and picked up the two Face of Australia items that I’d missed out on at my local Priceline. I also got to chat with my favourite Priceline lady, so that is always a win in my book!
So in the end, I ended up being the proud new owner of:
How did you go in the 40% off sale? I’d love to know what you picked up or if you recommend me getting anything from Priceline. As always..
Thank you so much for reading, and don’t forget:
