Mini-Haul #Maybelline and #Australis (and ramble)

16 August 2014

Another sale at Priceline = another mini haul. Maybelline is currently 50% everything! I got there with 3 things in my list that I wanted to try:

 Super Stay Better Skin Foundation - no matching shade. Surprisingly the shades are more on the rosy undertones and I need yellow. So I passed on that.

 Colour Sensational Bold Matte - the shade I wanted - Nude - is gone. Finished. Soldout. I could not bring myself to get any of the brighter ones.

 Colour Elixir by Colour Sensational - ah yes, finally something that I was able to grab!

And as you can see on the photo below, I did get a few other things, Maybelline's Super Stay 7 days Gel Nail Colour and my long time favourite, the Australis Eyeshadow primer.

Maybelline Colour Elixir  - Rose Redefined (096)
Maybelline SuperStay 7 Days Gel Colour - Base Transparent (25) & Rose Poudre (130)
Australis Eyeshadow Primer

I haven't tried the nail polishes just yet at that requires a total alone me time and not just the-baby-is-asleep kind of me time so watch this space for a future blog post.

While the primer is a repurchase. My feelings for it has not changed. It's local and very affordable and it does the job. It's not as long-wearing like the Urban Decay Primer Potion but hey I don't need makeup on my face for more than 12hrs.

and finally let's talk about the lip gloss. Smitten. I am smitten by this. It is very shiny (tiny hands always want to touch it kind of shiny) or glossy if you wish to be technical. 

I love this gloss and how it makes my lips look plumped and healthy. And as always I gravitated to the closest shade to my lips. It's very spring and fresh. It has a particular scent though so if you're sensitive to scents then you may steer away from this one. I find it when I used it for the first time, as in when I open the tube, the scent was too strong. It smelled very similar to the perfume Alien by Thiery Mugler. No kidding. But now it's just normal vanilla-esque kind of scent with just a hint of Alien to it.

I am really surprised how long it stays glossy on the lips so definitely some money well spent right there. I can see this to be the lip product of choice for the coming weeks.

It's sunny and warm and it still winter! I think Australia definitely got the best weather of all time. Hands.down.

Hope it's lovely and warm where you are :)

Have a great weekend!
