Yet Another Priceline Haul

What's that I hear you say?

"Christie, you literally just had a Priceline haul"?
"Christie, stop spending so much money on make-up"?
"Christie, we need to talk. You have a problem"?

It's true! It's all true!

All I needed was an eye liner pencil. One eye liner pencil that would have cost me no more than $6. One eye liner pencil that I could not be bothered actually going to a store for. Do people still do that? Go to actual stores? So, yes, instead of getting off my ass and spending $6 on an eye liner, I logged on to my trusty Priceline account and spent a little over $100 (for the free shipping, of course) on a bunch of goodies. I need professional help.


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Stockholm' and 'Milan'
These have such a creamy formula, yet they still quickly dry down to a matte finish, which makes these the most comfortable liquid lipstick to wear. The staying-power isn't the best for a liquid formula (they're marketed as a lip cream, however, not a lipstick) but my lips have been the driest and flakiest they've ever been lately, so I'm absolutely loving being able to wear pop of colour on them again! The shade Milan is a lovely cool-toned pink. I actually expected something a little on the browner side but I was pleasantly surprised. As someone who rarely wears pinks, this is a welcome addition to my collection. Stockholm is much a much more brown-nude with peachy undertones which is right up my alley. I'm definitely keen to pick up a few other shades in the future.

This is a forever repurchase of mine. I've mentioned this concealer more times on the blog than you can imagine, so I won't waste your time with repeating myself. All I will say, is that I use this every day, as a concealer base (It's not overly brightening, so I use Maybelline's FitMe on top to lighten). The formula is quite thick, but still smooth enough to blend out nicely, filling in fine lines without settling into them or creasing. It conceals those dark circles wonderfully, all the while managing not to accentuate my dry skin.

I've only recently gotten in to the habit of adding an eye cream to my routine (oops) and I've been on the look-out for a good drugstore eye cream for a few months now. After reading pretty good reviews on Natio's offering, I decided to give it a try. I like to give new skincare a couple of months before I make a comment on how they've worked for me. Fingers crossed it's as good as I hoped in the long-run!

This is another repurchase for me; I buy a new pencil about every two months as this is my 'every day' eye liner. I do prefer pencil eye liners to liquid liners when I'm in a rush - I just find I'm much more efficient with a pencil. It does have a tendency to smudge a little when used on the waterline, but once set with eye shadow (see my eye liner setting hack here), it stays put all day long. It's super creamy and easy to apply, making it perfect for when I'm rushing to get ready for work (always).

This bronzer is absolutely perfect for the "every day look" and an amazing option for pale-skinned girls. The colour is light and not muddy in the slightest, which makes it perfect for either contouring or just adding a glow to the face. The powder itself is smooth, yet (somehow) creamy and the smell, guys! Summer-y, coconut-y goodness.


Do you want to know the worst thing about this whole endeavour? The day after I placed my order, Priceline had a huge sale. Goody bags and all. Story of my life.

  1. I'm assuming considering the brands this is drugstore a bit like U.K boots? I've
    Tried the majority of these products and love them all. Sometimes drug store is the best place.

    I need to Spring clean my makeup bag! All of those items look amazing, and I need them! But I'm a store shopper. Thanks for the reviews though.

    I still haven't tried the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Concealer. I've heard that it works wonders.

  11. I think we both need to start a "Stop looking at the Priceline website" club because I did something similar on the weekend and ended up buying out the shop!

  12. I'm obsessed with the Butter Bronzer, it's perfect for fair skin tones! Somehow I haven't tried the Age Rewind yet, definitely need to get my hands on it soon :)

  25. I've never been to (or really even looked at) Boots for myself, but judging from what I've seen online, it does look like it'd be pretty similar to Priceline. I absolutely love when the drugstore can match up to high-end products. :) x

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love a good Spring clean. I'm loving everything so far, definitely worth the spend in my opinion - you can go in store and buy them instead of online. :P x

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm a sucker for a good drugstore shop, what can I say? :P x

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yesss! Definitely give Butter Bronzer a try if you can! It's amazing. :) x

  32. It's such a great concealer - pretty cheap in comparison, too. :)
    Ahaha it's a problem that I do not intend to fix. ;) x

  33. It's so easy to go crazy in the drugstore. I hope you'll try some things here when you next shop - they're all working wonderfully for me so far. :) x

  36. Yesss, Katie! I'm such a fan of Butter Bronzer. You NEED to try Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Concealer, though. Christie has put her foot down - you must. :P x

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ahaha that's true! Could you image if I'd bought this, and forgotten about the eye liner? x
