Haul: Priceline Beauty Bag 2013

I've been waiting for this bag since I got my first one last year. Haha. I'm so glad it finally arrived and it didn't disappoint. You probably already know when you spend $60 on the following brands;
Models Prefer
Nude By Nature
Press & Go
Sally Hansen
Savvy by DB

You get the beauty bag for free. This offer ends on the 22nd of April or until they run out.

What I bought;
  • Models Prefer Mystique Smudge brush and Models Prefer Dual Sharpener -  $15.39 (they were having buy 2 save 30%)
  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 22 - $9.56
  • Sally Hansen Extreme Nails in Pacific Blue - $3.95
  • Savvy by DB Lip gloss in French Rose - $3.99
  • Rimmel Scandal Eyes Liner in Nude - $7.96
  • Bourjois Sweet Kiss Lipstick in Orange Apretee - $10
  • Australis Creme Colour in Flirtatious Pink - $7.98
So if you've done the maths (which you probably haven't) my total came to $58.81. I believe it was the manager that served me and he was very kind about it and let have the bag anyway. So thank you for that Priceline. 

The bag itself was actually much better quality which I was very surprised about. 

 My bag included:
  • Coupon for $5 off Revlon's new BB Cream
  • Ecotools bath sponge
  • Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch in 001 Flush of Pearl
  • Nude by Nature Undercover Airbrush Mineral Primer
  • Savvy by DB wipes
  • Manicare Cuticle Therapy
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Midnight in NY
  • Models Prefer Brow Highlighter
  • Australis Paparazzi Perfect Concealer in Medium/Dark (YAY!!! It actually matches me)
  • Natio lipstick in Flutter
  • Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum
  • Bourjois Volume Glamour Max in Noir Max
  • Kiss Everlasting French glue on nails
  • Press & Go Press on Manicure in Call Me Agent
I'd just like to comment that Priceline had AMAZING customer service not only did they give me the bag despite being $1.20 under but I had an item missing (nail polish). I went to back to Priceline they double checked and swapped my bag. So overall I'm really happy with this purchase. Thank you for doing these beauty bag Priceline and I hope you keep it up. Thumbs up for excellent customer service.

Did you get the beauty bag this year? If so, were you happy?

Review: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Image: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Claims: "Extremely fast drying top coat. Protects your nail polish against chipping"

How long would you expect a "quick dry" top coat to dry, 60 seconds maybe 2 minutes? Well don't expect too much from this top coat. Every time I've used this top coat I've had problems with my nail polish smudging or sheet lines when I wake up. 

The top coat does dry fairly quickly however the nail polish remains soft and smudges if your not careful. I tried it a few times but the last time I tried it I left it for an hour and a half to fully set and without doing anything that would ruin the polish before going to sleep but when I woke up my nail polish had sheet marks. All I can say is disappointing. 

Yes it is a cheap product but from essence I expected a lot better. I've used a few essence products but this was the WORST. 

In terms of protection from chipping I don't believe it makes much of a different. My test for this was rimm…

Haul: Myer, David Jones and Priceline

Over the last 3 months I've accumulated quite a few things, there have been a few things I needed to pick up plus a few sales. So let's get into it...

Kit Cosmetics in Myer

1. Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser - $22.95 AUD

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion - $26.95 AUD

3. Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion - $26.95 AUD

They also gave me a sample of the Mario Badescu Whitening Mask


4. Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Set - $46.80  ($52 RRP)
I got this when they had 10% off but even at $52 it's still a good deal. You get a full size doll eyes mascara, mini kohl eyeliner, mini gloss in love lipgloss in peach show and a mini nude nail polish. 

They also gave me 2 samples Teint Miracle and Teint Idole Ultra 24H

5. MAC Brush cleaner - $18 ($20 RRP)

David Jones

6. The Balm InStain Blush in Swiss Dot - $20.21 ($26.95 RRP)
They were having 25% off.

Also a few months ago I was looking for a cream or serum to lighten my hyperpigmentation so I went to the Kiehl's counter in DJ and asked what they …

Review: UBU Shady Lady Eyeshadow Brush (No. 30)

Claim: "All eyes on you baby. Love your lids with this short synthetic bristle brush perfectly molded to your eye shape."

If you want a brush to apply eyeshadow all over the lid then this is NOT the brush for that. 

There are a few reasons why it's a bad all over the eye lid brush. 
1) Bristles are not flexible 
2) Bristles are too firm 
3) Bristles from the base are fairly thick but as it tapers to the top it becomes too thin therefore not enough eyeshadow can get onto the brush to actually be applied smoothly all over the lid. 

However, this brush is really good for applying eyeshadow on the lower lash line. So if your looking to set your eyeliner with eyeshadow this is a handy tool. It is the right amount of thickness and firmness to apply eyeshadow on the lash line. 

- Doesn't do what it claims

- Great for lower lash line
- Cheap 

Rating: 2.5 

Where and how much: K-mart - $6.00
