Priceline's 40% off sale

over the past 2 days, priceline has been having a 40% off all cosmetics sale. now at first i told myself that i wouldnt be sucked in, as cosmetics are not essential. but unsurprisingly, being the shopaholic that i am, i ended up going to 2 different priceline stores across the 2 days.. and i bought quite a lot. so here we go..

first up, is the Schwarzkopf live colour silver toner $4.80, this was the only thing that i bought that was not on sale, but i wanted it anyway, and it is cheap even at full price

this is the l'oreal nude magique BB blush $13.77.
this product is basically magic, it comes out as a clear gel, and then you rub it onto your skin where it changes to a pink shade that is the ideal pink for your skin (supposedly), i have often eyed this off when i am in priceline, but the usual price (over $20) always turns me off.

this is the rimmel stay matte primer $8.37
i love the pressed powder from the stay matter range, and i am a major matte face fan, so naturally i had to try this out

below, is the models prefer mineral blush soft touch in the shade winters end $7.79
this blush is so beautiful, it is a very light pink, so it is very subtle,, especially on my skin tone


i also bought some more revlon colorstay shadowlinks, these eyeshadows are amazing. the colours are lovely and pigmented, and their ability to clip and unclip to each other is just so handy. i bought the colours moss, plum, and petal. and these were $5.97 each


seeing as i love the translucent version of this, i decided to go back and buy a coloured one as well. this is the rimmel stay matte powder in 004 sandstorm $7.77

i have heard a lot of people talk about this product, the rimmel wonder'full mascara $10.77, which contains argan oil to promote growth in your lashes (which im not sure i believe), however, this mascara itself is truly wonderful. it creates great length and is not clumpy at all

this is the models prefer infinite colour eye pencil in brown suede $6. i already own another of these pencils in bronze ambition, and i love it to pieces. seeing as black eyeliner does not suit me at all, i decided to go for the brown as a slightly more dramatic version from the bronze

this is the savvy trio eyeshadow in dusty pink $2.99.
i wasnt sure how good this would be as savvy is one of those hit or miss brands, but the price convinced me that i may as well give it a go. these colours are lovely neutrals, perfect for everyday wear

this is the revlon super lustrous lipstick in cherries in the snow $13.17
i always look at the revlon lipsticks when i am in priceline, but at their usual cost, it is hard to justify buying them, especially if it is in a bright colour like the one i chose here. this lipstick is so creamy and pigmented, and although the colour is quite bold, i can definitely see myself getting plenty of wear out of it.

i also picked up a lipstick by savvy. this is the savvy lipstick in pretty pink $3. it is one of those classic nude 'your lips but better' shades, and is quite a lot better than i expected.

i love the rimmel 60 seconds range of nail polishes, the brush for these is a flat brush which makes it so much quicker and easier to apply, and all of the shades are thick opaque shades, which need 1-2 coats for pefect coverage. this nail polish is 504 district-ly come dancing and it was $4.77

whenever priceline has a cosmetics sale, i always make sure i pick up a new one of these, this is the australis pressed powder in natural $7.17. this is my holy grail of pressed powders, i use it everyday, 90% of the time, on its own. i rarely wear liquid foundation, as i hate the feel of it, and this powder has high enough coverage that i dont really need to

next up is the australis velourlips matte lipcream in HO-CHEE-MIN $5.97
to me, this range seems like a dupe for the lime crime velveteens range. they are matte lipcreams which come out liquid and dry like velvet/ velour on your lips. the colours are very pigmented and opaque, and because they are matte, they are long lasting too.


on the second day of the sale, i returned and picked up a few more items, as follows...

i bought another revlon colorstay shadowlink, this one is charcoal, and it has been on my to buy list for a while now, but it was sold out yesterday. this was $5.97 and is and incredible versatile matte shade

i also bought the rimmel natural bronzer in sun kissed $9.57
i am forever looking for a matte bronzer that is also not too orange and not too dark. and i believe i have finally found one. although it is not advertised as matte, i cant see any shimmer within the bronzer, so if there is some, it must be very subtle..

and last, but most certainly not least, is the rimmel lipstick in firecracker $5.97
this colour is absolutely amazing, it is just pink enough that it stands out, but subtle enough that i feel i could wear it everyday. this has already become my holy grail of lip colours.


and finally, here is just a quick selfie of the make up look i wore today using some of these products.
my eyeshadow is the savvy trio palette
my blush is the models prefer blush
my mascars is the rimmel wonder'full
i used the brown eyeliner on my outer waterline
and the savvy lipstick on my lips

thanks to anyone who made it all the way to the bottom, xo phoebe
