A Drugstore Haul


I have terrible self control. On two separate occasions I just 'popped' into my local drugstores (Priceline & Chemist Warehouse) for a quick browse to provide some retail therapy to my day. I really didn't plan on purchasing anything but the words "40% off" and "50% off" felt like it was a sign to treat myself ?! And so as you can clearly see: I did treat myself! 

Products purchased:
1. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in 'Ivory': I've wanted to try this for ages so seeing as it was 50% off I took this as my opportunity to give it a whirl. Have only used a few times but so far I reallyyy like it. 

2. Revlon ColourStay Eyebrow Liner: This is a repurchase. My trusty Soap & Glory eyebrow product is coming to an end and seeing as there is nowhere to purchase it in Australia I thought i'd go back to this faithful product. 

3. Loreal Brow Artist Plumper in 'Transparent':  My favourite youtuber KathleenLights has raved on and on about this product so I thought i'd give it a try. It has now made its way into my everyday make-up routine so it's a big thumbs up from me!

4. Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'Bold Gold': This was a no-brainer purchase. The Colour Tattoos are my absolute favourite eye shadow products so I had to add this into the collection next. 

 5. Maybelline Matte Lipstick in 'Daringly Nude': It was love at first swatch. This is the perfect nude shade. 

6. NYX Liquid Suede in 'Soft Spoken': When I went to the NYX launch in Melbourne they didn't have this shade. It wasn't until NYX came to my local priceline that I discovered they stocked it! I don't own any shades like this - it's like a much darker version of MAC's 'Brave'. The Liquid Suede formula is one of my favourites so it was an obvious purchase. 

7. Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour in 'Devotion': This shade is beautifullll. Beautiful. Just stunning. It's girly yet classy. I have worn this on a number of occasions and it's been a success. I don't find this formula dries down completely but I kind of like that about it as it's less drying. A definite winner. 

Let me know if you have tried any of these products or now want to try some. I will have to avoid the drugstore for awhile now as I fear I won't be able to stop myself buying things! Haha.

    1. Yes i'd recommend both! They're both soo good and my favourite drug store liquid lipsticks. :) x

  7. I really want to try the revlon matte lip colours! Even though they don't dry completely, do they still look matte, or slightly glossy?

    1. They look matte but they don't feel completely matte which is a dream! I just bought some colourpop ultra matte lipsticks and I completely prefer the Revlon one to be honest :) x

  8. Those lipsticks look gorgeous! Maybelline daringly nude looks particularly lovely xx

  9. I just bought the Rimmel foundation and it works like a dream! its actually one of the best drugstore foundations I've tried yet. Also, the color of the NYX liquid lipstick is a gorgeous shade as well. Thanks for sharing!
