Chemist Warehouse Sale: Revlon and Maybelline

So I was reading one of my favourite beauty blog's the other day and the words Chemist Warehouse and Sale were mentioned (read it here).  Needless to say out came Google Maps (I'm still learning my way around Adelaide) and I was off.  I bought a lot of things I wanted and nothing I really needed but that seems to be becoming a habit with me.  The exciting thing was I SAVED  a lot of money :)  Revlon, Maybelline and Rimmel were all half price but because the sale has been on for quite awhile already (how did I not know) there was not a lot of stock left.

Here's what I got:

2x Maybelline Baby Lips Color Lipbalm in Berry Crush & Pink Lolita
SPF15 Lipbalms with just a hint of colour.  Love love love

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream 8in1 in Fair

3x Maybelline Color Tattoo pots in Tough as Taupe, Audacious Asphalt and Too Cool.  I plan to use these as eyeshadow bases as I've heard they have really good staying power and don't crease.

Full n Soft Mascara in Black.  This is my holy grail mascara; I've tried so many others that are way more expensive but I just keep coming back to this.
Volum'Express Mascara the Falsies Flared.  

Rimmell Wake me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch 
2x Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters  in Strawberry Shortcake and Peach Parfait.  I've read so much about these I just had to try them for myself.

Let me know if you'd like a review or swatches of any particular product I got.  I believe the sale finishes on the 26th of January so if you have a Chemist Warehouse near you I highly recommend you head down and check it out.  As for me I will now be hiding my purse away in a dark dark place

Happy Shopping xx


  1. Yay! I am so glad you got down there and got some great stuff! the baby lips look awesome, but I don't think they are in melbourne... I will have to go tomorrow and have another look! great blog!

    1. Thanks. They were only just putting the Baby Lips up when I got there today so must be new!

  2. Great buys! I've been abusing this sale too, nothing can get better than 50% off cosmetics! I absolutely love Baby Lips, the Colour Tattoos and the Revlon Lip Butters :)

  4. I live in NSW so use the Chemist Warehouse website. I would be very interested to know what you think of the Maybelline Color Tattoo, I have been thinking about buying some for a while but was worried they might crease.

    1. Thanks for your comment. I'll be reviewing the Color Tattoos this week so keep an eye out :)

    2. for me personally the colour tattoos to crease much to my disappointment. =( so I apply a primer under them still to avoid that.

    3. I'm trying them out today, one with LimeCrime primer underneath and one without to see how they go with creasing. Thanks for your comment.

  5. that sounds good but swap meets sell the same thing you bought but usually for a lot less than half, i bought a bunch of make up and each for 3 bucks!


Feel free to comment or ask any questions. I would love to hear from you x
