Priceline announced on the 10th of March that they would be having a two day 40% off day starting the 11th and finishing on the 12th of March. This didn’t leave me much room to save or to plan what I wanted to buy but I knew that I had a lot of things I’d really been wanting to try out.
My friend Zoe and I are uni buds and makeup buds and as soon as I found out about the sale I messaged her and said, ‘I sure hope you’re doing nothing after uni because we have very important business to attend to.’
I’ve been going through a constant battle with very oily skin and I knew that one of the reasons I can’t stay matte was due to my foundation. I’d been doing some research on Youtube and found the foundation I wanted, which funnily enough is the foundation my Mum uses, the only issue was it was R.R.P. $34.95AUD and I wasn’t willing to pay that amount for a ‘drug store’ foundation, no matter how good it was.
There are also a few of the MAC Lipstick dupes that I really wanted to purchase because I’d been eyeing them off for such a long time.
In the end I purchased:
- Revlon ColorStay 24h Oily/Combination Foundation in Ivory
- Revlon Lash Potion in Blackest Black
- Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Coralberry
- Maybelline Metal Colour Tattoo in Inked In Pink
- Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Starry Eyed
I paid $51 AUD with a coupon so the total would have been approximately $60 AUD
I had about fifteen items in my basket and then realised how much it was all going to cost and I ended up just getting what I really wanted. I also had the chance to swatch two dupes next to each other.
Revlon’s Black Cherry lipstick was in a limited edition package and I pretty much just wanted it for that reason and was finding it really hard to give up the lipstick. I also picked up Rimmel’s Starry Eyed because I know I’d written it down in my lipstick dupes for something. I swatched them next to each other to see which one I liked more and realised they were actually identical. The only difference was that Black Cherry was really patchy and didn’t look very nice swatched on my hand so I bought the cheaper and nicer alternative. A bit sad considering Revlon is my favourite brand for lip products.
Anyway that’s what I got in my 40% off Priceline haul!
