Priceline 40% off Cosmetics Sale - Haul & Recommendations

It's that time of the year again when Priceline holds a two-day sale with 40% off all cosmetics.  I like to stock up on items I love during the sale but this time I already had enough back-ups.  I almost wasn't even going to go in-store and check it out but I caved and went anyway haha.  

I kept a good handle on myself and only left the store with 5 items.  Pretty restrained for me!

Here's what I picked up today in the Priceline 40% off Cosmetics Sale:

I haven't tried any of these products before but the Maybelline Color Jolt ($8.97) and the Essence Make me Brow ($3.06) come highly recommended so I'm looking forward to trying those out.  The Models Prefer Airburshing Buffing Brush ($11.39) is incredibly soft and I'm interested to see how it performs.  I'm very particular about the brushes I use and to be honest it's not very often that I try new ones as I stick with what I know so I'll see how this goes.  The Models Prefer Mineral Powder Soft Touch ($10.19)  is in the shade Radiant Bronze and for someone pale like me who doesn't usually use bronzer this seemed like a good product to start with as it seems quite light.  The Models Prefer Soft Touch Powders are supposedly dupes for the Hourglass Ambient Powders.  And a simple Essence Eyebrow Pencil to try out too ($1.83).  *All prices are the sale prices in AUD

And now onto my recommendations:

Base Product Recommendations - Priceline 40% off Cosmetics Sale

Face Products

If you can get your hands on the new Essence Glitter in the Air Collection I am loving the blush and shimmer drops.  I can't get over how cheap these products are even at full price so you'll be winning big time to get them at 40%.  The Maybelline Fit Me Dewy & Smooth Foundation & Concealer are my favourite drugstore base products - they both give medium to full coverage that lasts really well.  I always have backups of these as my under-eyes fear running out of the concealer! The NYX Powder in Taupe is the perfect contouring shade for fair skinned girls like myself.  It's a perfect neutral shade that isn't too dark and blends easily.

Lip Products

My all time favourite lip product is the Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Honey as it is my perfect 'my lips but better' shade and applies so easily that I don't even need a mirror.  I keep a spare of this in my bag and my car so I'm never caught out.  I have about 10 shades of the Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain as the formula is just so dreamy.  NYX make great lip products too and I'm a fan of the Liquid Suede formula - this shade is the only one in the range that really suits me but there's a lot to choose from including some crazy ones so well worth checking out if you're a fan of a matte liquid lip.  The NYX Butter Gloss is fantastic creamy gloss that gives a hint of colour and isn't too sticky, another product I have a few different shades of.  The Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick* is another great all-rounder, I have the shade Mauve-ment which is another great natural all-rounder shade.  And last but not least the Maybelline Baby Lips Balms.  These are super super cheap and so handy to have around when your lips are dry but you still need some colour.  I try to always keep a lip balm handy as I have chronic dry lips!

Well, I'm sure I could be here all day making recommendations on products you can pick up at the Priceline 40% off Sale but I'll leave it there for today.  If you end up shopping the sale I'd love to know what you picked up - feel free to comment in the section below and tag me on Instagram @imminentbeauty.

The Priceline sale is on from Wednesday 22nd March to midnight Thursday 23rd March 2017 in-store and online.

Happy Shopping!!


*Everything here was purchased myself except for the Rimmel lipstick which was sent to me for consideration.  As per normal my views and opinions are my own.  Honesty always.

  1. I picked up a couple of Color Jolts, too. I just had to try them! I wish I was as restrained as you, I kind of lost it and went a bit crazy, haha :)
