Priceline 40% off Haul

So if you live in Australia, are a make-up addict and/or a shopaholic and don't live in a cave you would know this already...Priceline had their 40% off all cosmetics sale this Tuesday and Wednesday. The aisles of Priceline became packed with people, products flew off the shelves and bank accounts wept. I picked up quite a few goodies and am really excited to give them a go! 

Apologies for the disgusting photos, winter is coming and the light is fading. It was overcast and dark all day :( It was one of those days where it feels like you have no "daytime". Anyway let's discuss some of the products I picked up. The first thing I saw when I walked into Priceline was a huge new stand of the brand new Revlon Ultra HD Lipsticks. I was super excited to see them and so happy they were in stores for the 40% off sale because they normally retail at $23.95, which is pretty expensive for a "drugstore" lipstick. I tried to be sensible and picked up one shade, 'Magnolia'. My first impression of the lipstick is that it is very lovely. It smells really nice and has decent lasting power. It also does not dry your lips out.

Speaking of new products, I picked up a Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush in 'Pink Rose'. These were launched ages ago in America and I have been waiting patiently for them to arrive in Australia. I think this will be a very pretty pink blush. It comes in quite a sturdy compact with a mirror and a little brush. 

I saw this eyeshadow palette from Models Prefer and for a mere $6 I could not say no! The 12 shadows come in a tin and a double-ended brush is included. Reminds you of a high-end eyeshadow palette, yeah? 

I picked up a pressed powder from Australis. I know that a lot of Aussie beauty bloggers /youtubers rave about a powder from Australis but I'm not sure if it is this one or the other one...if you know, please do let me know :) I also picked up  Revlon Colourstay foundation. My holy grail foundation is the colorstay whipped cream that comes in a jar but I decided to try out the liquid version which seems to get a lot of love. The Essence Maximum Definition Volume mascara was a re-purchase. And at the very end near the register I spotted this limited edition tin of Lanolips which was a bargain. The products included in the tin are valued at $27. It was originally being sold for $20 and I got it for $10. I love a bargain :) 

I hope you enjoyed this haul. What did you pick up from Priceline? Also, which products would you like to see reviewed first on the blog?

Thanks for reading!!! Cheers :)


  1. I wish we've had such sales=( That palette looks awesome!

  2. A nice little haul! I've never seen that Australis powder before. I think it's the other one that ppl have been talking about (round compact?). I want to test out some of the Revlon HD lippies, they look pretty cute!

  3. Thanks Kat, I will have to investigate the round compact powder. Priceline was crazy during the sale so I didn't have much "thinking time"! The Revlon lipsticks are definitely worth looking at, I think they are currently 2 for $30 at Priceline? :)

  4. I can't wait to play with the eyeshadow palette :) Hopefully one day Priceline ships internationally!
