So firstly I need to apologize for not keeping up with a routine blogging schedule, it’s just that I have created a few tutorials and FOTD’s but my currently shitty camera doesn’t do the job and every color, even black will turn up orange. Hence I am in the process of saving up to get a very decent indeed camera will i will be able to post better quality pictures to generate a better quality blog. (and hopefully some video tutorials)
Today my sister decided to go shopping and dragged me along, I wasn’t going to buy anything but then I got a not-so-pleasant phone call and decided on some retail therapy. Although it’s not much.
I’ll start with what I got at Priceline (which if you’re not from Australia is the ‘drugstore’ products)
Maybelline Dream Lumitouch Highlighting Concealer – $17.95AU
So I have been in desperate need for a new concealer since I completely used up my MAC one (and by used up i mean the entire jar was bare, I was still trying to scrap around the edges with my concealer brush) and instead of repurchasing I wanted to try some drugstore concealer, since I haven’t done that before. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this and there is a big comparison between this and the Yves Saint Laurent Touch eclat concealer, which I think is around $60 Australian dollars and for a concealer that’s just too pricey. So I’m hoping that the maybelline one will live up to the high comparison.
Revlon Slant Tip Tweezers – $8.00 (sale price) AU
This purchase was mainly because of the 25% off Revlon tools sale on at Priceline and I saw these and since I was on the hunt for a new pair of tweezers I thought these were a good purchase, can’t wait to try them out!
TRESemme Heat Tamer Protective Spray – $8.00 (sale price) AU
There is so much hype surrounding this heat protector and I thought I’d put it to the test since i tend to use heated hair tools on the daily.
L’Oreal Elnett Satin (Natural Touch) Hairspray – $5.00 AU
What’s to say I needed a new hairspray since I am heading to an 18th this weekend and need to get all dolled up. I’ve heard a lot about this product and am really hoping it does indeed provide a ‘natural touch’ and not become crunchy.
Revlon Smokey Eye Brush – $8.00 (sale price) AU
Been on the lookout for a new angled eyeliner brush and took total advantage of the sale with Revlon tools and it was just a bonus that it is double-ended; giving me the option to create the smoked eyeliner effect (which I lurve). It’s also VEEERRRYY soft 😀
Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm in Strawberry – $3.00 AU
This is a repurchase, I loved it so much before I accidentally dropped it on the ground and well, it got very dirty and completely unhygienic. It took me awhile to repurchase this because I switched over to the Baby Lips lip balms, which are great, I just missed the very subtle red tint it gives my lips, plus it is very moisturizing, looks great and taste pretty cool too.
I then walked past Dusk which is the home to all candles and gorgeous decor here in Australia and since it’s still cold and I still lack a heap of lighting in my room I’m always on the lookout for new candles so I picked out one of the 30hr Destination Jar Candles in Bondi for $15.00 AU. Can’t wait to light it up tonight.
The last purchase is the vivid copy of this month’s Cosmo, I’m not the biggest magazine reader but it’s the Beauty Issue and Miranda Kerr is on the front, How could I say no?
