I managed to make it to Priceline yesterday to pick up a couple of things during the 40% off cosmetics sale. I was going to do another $10 haul, but I really couldn't limit myself to that much again, and I was with my mum so I had to be quick. I did pick up some bargains though!
First I went into the city to meet my mum, after shopping for my cousins twin baby girls, we stopped off at Lush and I picked up the Melting Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt. Oh my god it smells so good! It's just like the Snow Fairy shower gel which I love, so I can't wait to give it a go!
The shopping centre in the city is currently undergoing renovations, so the Priceline has moved to a temporary location. Unfortunately, the temporary Priceline is pretty terrible. The isles are narrow, and I couldn't even see a Face of Australia or Essence stand! I must commend them for their Australis stand, I finally got to see the new Pout Pastes, as well as their new lipsticks and face and body tint (even though I didn't actually buy any of them). I picked up the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Instant Nail Hardener and the Manicare 4 way buffer (because this Priceline didn't have the Sally Hansen one!). I'm trying to get my nails into better shape, which is why you didn't see a Weekly Nail post from me this week.
We then went to our local shopping center, and stopped in at their Priceline. I picked up the Face of Australia Face Base Primer 3 in 1, Essence Nail Art Express Dry Drops, Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara, as well as some new shampoo and mouth wash. I'm almost out of my sample Revlon primer, and I've heard some good things about the Face of Australia primers. I decided to get the 3 in 1, as my current foundation doesn't contain any SPF. I've also heard good things about the Essence dry drops, I'm way to impatient to wait for my nail polish to dry most of the time. Quick question, can you put nail colour of these after you've dried your base nail colour? I'd love to use them for nail art, I should just try it out anyway. At the counter I spotted the Clump Crusher mascara, and after a quick discussion with my mum, I decided I should pick up a back up for when my current mascaras go dry and clumpy. It ended up only costing $6, bargain! We went back to the Covergirl stand to decide this, and on the way back to the counter mum decided she wanted a new lipstick, and I recommended a Revlon lip butter! We had to be quick because they were closing, so she ended up with Sugar Plum, a shade I really love.
So, not a very interesting haul. I really could have picked up a lot more, but there's no point of me buying lots of stuff that I can't take with me when I travel, or I'd need to bring a separate suitcase for beauty products! I'm also thinking about buying some high end products during my travels. I would have liked to have gotten some of the new Face of Australia Glitterazi nail polishes, but my local priceline hasn't got them in yet (or ANY of the new Australis products).
Did you pick up anything good in the 40% off sale? Let me know below (so I can maybe rush off in my break today to get it!)
