Priceline 40% Off Cosmetics Sale Shopping Guide


Who loves sales?

I DO! :)

Priceline is having a 40% off cosmetics sale from 9 November to 10 November. Yes, it is starting tomorrow! It will be available online and in store.

We all know how overwhelming it is during the sale. Make sure you do your research beforehand and get your wishlist ready because it is always like a war zone! If you are shopping online, I suggest you add everything to the cart prior to the sale. Get your account and payment set up, so you are ready to check out when the clock strikes midnight to avoid any disappointment.

And in case you need some shopping ideas, I have compiled a list of products that I think are worth checking out. Let’s start with eyeshadow, shall we?

Nude By Nature has recently launched a whole collection of new products and I just can’t look past its beautiful rose gold packaging! One thing that really caught my eye is the Natural Wonders Eyeshadow Palette* (RRP $49.95). I have never tried their eye products before, so naturally getting a palette is a great way to start. The mattes, especially the blue shades, were a bit dry and chalky to work with. I had to layer the dark blue shadow to get the swatch below. However, the shimmers are BOMB, very smooth with great pigmentation. So overall, I would say this is still a decent palette.

If you are a cream eyeshadow fan, you NEED to try the Revlon Photoready Eye Art Lid Line Lash (RRP $21.95)! It is a cream shadow and glitter liner duo, which is perfect for creating some fun and festive eye looks. Give it a swatch when you see it in store, I promise you will be amazed by how pigmented, metallic and wet the eyeshadow looks.

Moving onto cheeks. Quite a few brands have launched cheek palettes this year and you know I must give the Rimmel Kate Sculpting Palette* a mention. I have been completely hooked ever since I got it. I especially love the highlight and blush shade, they give you a soft glow and rosy cheeks. Perfect for everyday.

On the other hand, if you looking for an in-your-face highlight, definitely check out Physicians Formula. They make some of my favorite drugstore highlights. I have recently picked up the Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls* (RRP $29.95) in Light Bronze Pearl, which is a beautiful warm gold. After seeing it on Ash's Instagram (@thebeautycollection - this girl has an amazing account), I knew I had to have it. I think I will be picking up a lighter shade during the sale this time.

And I cannot not talk about the oh-so-popular Murumuru Butter Bronzer* (RRP $29.95) from Physicians Formula. It's been all over YouTube and social media since its launch and I can definitely see why. On me, it is too light to contour with, but I can totally see it work on people with lighter skin tone than me. I use it like a traditional bronzer to warm up my complexion like the sun just kissed my face. It has finally hit our shore after the long wait. So why not take advantage of the sale and see if the hype is real?

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Sculpt Trio in 102 Nude Beige and 201 Soft Rosy
One of the new trends developed in 2016 was draping, which is said to be the "new contouring". It is basically contouring using just blush. L'Oreal Paris has quickly picked up on this trend by releasing the Infallible Blush Sculpt Trio* (RRP $26.95). It is currently only available in two shades. The formula is quite shimmery and pigmented, I think they can totally double up as eyeshadows.

Lipsticks! Yes! 

I think the lipstick department in the drugstore is definitely winning at the moment. I have some new and old discoveries to share today. First, let's have a look at some traditional lipsticks. Rimmel has absolutely been killing it lately with all the new products and the Lasting Finish Kate Anniversary Lipsticks* (RRP $13.95) do not disappoint. Not only it has a stunning packaging, the formula is also very creamy, pigmented and non-drying. My favourite shade is surprisingly 53 Retro Red - a beautiful plum red.

The Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet (RRP $24) is a recent discovery for me. I have no idea why it took me so long to try it, but it is easily one of my favourite liquid lipstick formulas. It has a lightly whipped, moussey texture that is pigmented and non-drying. My raisin lips like how it doesn't set completely like some other liquid lipsticks (hint: it is not transfer proof).

And now, last but not least, we have lip lacquers. My two most worn formulas have to be NYX Intense Butter Gloss* (RRP $12.95) and Maybelline Color Sensational Color Elixir (RRP $17.95). These are nothing new, but they are some great staples I like to keep. Both of the formulas are very pigmented, glossy and easy to wear. Don't make me choose because they are equally good. These are definitely something I would throw on on a day-to-day basis, especially when I am running short on time to do a perfect lip with lipsticks.

Still not enough?
