We went back to Rundle Mall after lunch and I visited Priceline for the second time that day because there was a HUGE 40% off sale on all cosmetics! I had to really restrain myself though as I don't need any new makeup right now. If you know me however, you'll know that I'm a sucker for sales! I ended up purchasing a total of 5 products. I've done a very brief review on each product.
From left to right:
Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze
L'Oreal Caresse Lip Stain in Juliet
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof eye liner in 005 Nude
L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara in Waterproof Black
Garnier Clean Sensistive 2-in-1 Gentle Makeup Remover
The Maybelline Colour Tattoo is originally $11.95 but the sale took the price down to $7.17 .
This product is raved about so much on youtube and in beauty blogs so I've been meaning to try it for a very long time and only just got round to purchasing it. So far, I love the colour of it on my skin and it acts as a very nice base for eye shadows. However, I tend to get oily lids and so I will probably be using my Urban Decay Primer Potion under it just as a precaution!
The L'Oreal Caresse Lip Stain is known to be a dupe for the YSL Glossy Lip Stain. It was originally $23.95 but today I got it for $14.37 . I think this is a great alternative for those who don't want to fork out a ridiculous amount for such a product. (L'Oreal and YSL are under the umbrella of one large company anyway, so these products could potentially be very similar!). From what I've seen in real life, the L'Oreal stain seems more pigmented the YSL stain, and is only a third of the price! The colour I got is really pretty and great for a statement, bold lip.
(Sorry my hand looks extra red - the lip stain was a bit of a pain to get off!)
The Rimmel eye liner was originally $9.95 but I got it for $5.97. It is a great product and is definitely waterproof. I would recommend using a nude eyeliner rather than a white eye liner on your waterline as it gives a much more natural 'awake' look in contrast to the harsh white eyeliner look. I have my eye on the Stila nude eyeliner, which is 4 times the price of this, but I think this is a fantastic alternative.
I'm currently using the L'Oreal makeup remover and heard the Garnier makeup remover works just as well so I decided to give it a go. And I agree, it does the same job. The plus side with the Garnier makeup remover is that you get more product for a smaller price.
Thank you so much for reading! I'm definitely no expert but I do love playing around and experimenting with make up :)
