A week of haulin'

Hi guys, I'm breaking from my normal routine of posting one enormous haul at the end of each month because there are a lot of sales and bargains out there and there is no point in telling you about them after they're ended...

As some of you will probably know Priceline has 50% of Maybelline products at the moment, which I think is pretty brilliant to be honest! 50% off!!! How could I not buy anything? Also, earlier in the week I had an appointment which I thought was at 9am but it was (apparently) 10am which meant I had a whole hour to kill and guess what...Priceline was a two minute walk away. Pretty easy to guess what happened then isn't it? So anyway without further ado, let's see what I hauled this week.

From Priceline:
  • Maybelline Dream BB Cream with 2% Salicylic Acid was $15.95, currently $7.97
This has been advertised on TV lately and I had no intentions of buying it because 1) I don't need another BB cream,and, 2) I already have two and I barely ever wear them because at heart I'm really a foundation kinda gal. However on twitter somebody likened it to an asian bb cream and we all know how all the beauty gurus obsess over those so I had to try it and the 50% off sale was the perfect excuse. 

  • Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Barely Branded, was $11.95, currently $5.97
I tried these when they first came out and thought they were okay, but since I don't wear eyeshadow on a daily basis I have never really felt the need to buy more...but recently I have been wanting to wear eyeshadow more and have liked the idea of wearing a swipe of white-ish eyeshadow just to make my eyes look bigger and to make them "pop". I've heard so many great things about this colour, barely branded, that I decided I might as well get it. I love how pigmented these eyeshadows and their longevity is great. 
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Inked In Pink, was $11.95, currently $5.97
This one also worked it's way into my basket because as I said before I have been thinking about wearing more eyeshadow and perhaps a light pink might give my lids a nice wash of colour? And at this price I couldn't say no! It is such a gorgeous pink and I absolutely love it. Nope I haven't worn it yet...but just looking at it makes me adore it. That's not weird is it? I is pretty!

  • Face of Australia (Limited Edition) Budge Proof Eyeshadow in Bronze Sphinx, $8.95 (I think)
I've learnt from past experiences to always snap up limited edition items when you see them otherwise you will annoyed at yourself when you go back and find out they are all sold out! This looks incredibly like the Maybelline color tattoos, I will be interested to see how they compare.

  • Maybelline Color Show Sequins Nail Polish Collection in Sea-quins, was $5.95, currently $2.97 
Teal is my favourite colour and this polish looks gorgeous. Not much "thinking" went into this purchase, I just thought it was a beautiful colour!

  • Essence Stay with Me longlasting lip gloss in kiss kiss kiss, $3.50
I really like these longlasting lip glosses from essence, they're cheap and feel lovely on the lips. They are a little sticky but I prefer this over the feeling of their other glosses (the XXL Shine) which are not sticky at all. I don't like bold lips so red lipstick is out of the question for me but perhaps this will be a suitable substitute? 

  • Essence Lipstick in All About Cupcake, $3.50 
Not much to say, saw this and thought it was a nice colour.  

  • Sukin Cream Cleanser, was $9.99, currently $7.99 
My holy grail cleanser (which contains parabens) is nearly finished and I have decided I want to swap to a cleanser without parabens so I thought I would give this a go. 

From My Chemist Warehouse: 

There was a display filled with these adorable tins and as I got closer...I realised they were filled with lip balms :o I think these were around $8 and I totally didn't need these but the tin was too adorable for me to leave in the shop!

Revlon has teamed up with Liptember and created a fantastic range of lipsticks that sell for $9.99 or was it $9.97? Something like that. I've always wanted to try a Revlon lippy but the price tag had been scaring me off. I'm super happy with this purchase because 1) the funds go to raise awareness for mental health and 2) it's gorgeous and a bargain.

So after typing all that up I am feeling a bit guilty.............that is a lot of purchases in one week! But overall I am really happy with everything and can't wait to start using it all. If you have had your eye on any products from Maybelline I would definitely recommend paying a visit to Priceline while they have their 50% off sale.

Thanks for reading, cheers


  1. Think of the savings!! I went on a PL haul today and got the BB cream too. I saw the FOA eyeshadow pots but I didn't like it when I tested it on my hand =( . Nice haul though! xx

  2. Which color Revlon did you get? I wanted the nude but it was all gone but i did get the berry shade which is awesome. Reminds me of a NYX lipstick.

    1. I think I got the one called "liptember pink". The berry colour sounds lovely!

  3. What a nice haul! That Maybelline ColorShow nail lacquer looks so pretty.

    1. I know...I just couldn't leave that teal awesomeness on the shelf :)

  4. Awesome haul!! I really loved the Maybelline Color Show Sequins Nail Polish Collection!

    1. Cheers, I'm looking forward to trying the polish out :)
