EPIC Haul - Part One - Priceline

As you all know or should know I spent pretty much two weeks in Melbourne city for work training. If you didn't know then you must not follow me on Twitter (which you should do). I had been rambling on Twitter the whole time about - you guessed it SHOPPING!

You will see in this post that I shopped a lot. So much so that I have actually separated this haul into two posts. It just would have been way too long for one post. Part One will be my Priceline hauls and Part Two will be my Myer & David Jones hauls.

All of this was not purchased at one time. I picked up things on numerous trips to Bourke St. I know this is a lot of money to spend on make up. I have been working hard since I started work and I am still at that stage of enjoying earning my own money and spending it. 

Less talking, onto the haul...


I have been lusting after the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Lipsticks since I first saw images of them going around twitter. These are exactly my type of lipstick - bright and pigmented. 

  • Color Sensational Vivid Lipsticks in
    • 900 Pink Pop
    • 902 Fuchsia Flash
    • 904 Vivid Rose
    • 906 Hot Plum
    • 910 Shocking Coral
    • 914 Vibrant Mandarin


I was ecstatic when the last Priceline catalogue came out and L'Oreal was 3 for 2! It was awesome timing as there were some new L'Oreal releases I was interested in picking up. 

  • Nude Magique BB Powder in Light
  • Nude Magique BB Blush
  • Shine Caresse in 
    • 101 Lolita
    • 102 Romy
    • 103 Marilyn
    • 400 Eve


Whenever I see an Essence stand I like to pick up a few things especially if there is a new collection available. I went a Priceline in my lunch break to be able to pick up some items from the new Circus collection and when I saw the paper lashes from the Cherry Blossom collection, I couldn't resist. 
  • Cherry Blossom Girl Paper Lashes
  • Circus Circus 
    • Lip Lacquer in 02 My Glammy Acrobat
    • Highlighting Powder in 01 It's Magic
    • Colour3 Nail Polish in
      • 01 My Sparkling Acrobat
      • 03 Applause, Applause
      • 04 Cotton Candy

Rimmel & Models Prefer

Rimmel finally released their matte range of lipsticks so I had to pick a couple up. I also finally managed to track down the nude eye liner. I noticed Models Prefer have recently released a clear lip liner and as I have a very limited collection of lip liners I thought it would be a perfect addition to my collection. 

  • Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in
    • 103
    • 106
  • Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 005 Nude
  • Models Prefer Infinite Colour Lip Liner in Clearly Sealed 


I love Bourjois cosmetics and when I saw Priceline had 30% off and a GWP with any purchase over $19 (I think). I finally picked up the Healthy Mix concealer that I have heard many good things about - first impression, I likey.

  • Healthy Mix Concealer in 51 Light Radiance
  • 1 Second Nail Polish in 06 Rose Cupcake
  • Gift With Purchase containing:
    • Round Pot Blush in 34 Rose d'Or
    • Parisian mirror & kabuki in black

Sally Hansen

I was happy to find that the Complete Salon Manicure polishes were on sale for $10 each and there was a GWP with any purchase over $20 the GWP is valued at over $50!

  • Complete Salon Manicure in
    • 406 Purple Heart
    • 675 Mermaid's Tale
  • Gift With Purchase containing:
    • No More Ridges Nail Shaper & Buffer
    • Diamond Strength Nail Hardener
    • Complete Salon Manicure in Frutti Petutie
    • Diamond Shine Base & Top Coat


I haven't used a lot of Almay products in the past but when I trialled some for Beauty Heaven recently I really liked the liquid shadow/primer product but the purple I received isn't the most wearable. Since Almay had 2 products for $30 and a GWP for purchases over $39.95 so I decided to pick up a concealer and eye make up remover wipes (that weren't included in the 2 for $30).

  • Oil Free Make Up Remover Pads
  • Wake Up Under Eye Concealer in 010 Light
  • Intense i-color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer in 054 For Green Eyes
  • Gift With Purchase containing:
    • Smart Shade Anti-Aging Make Up in 200 Light/Medium
    • Smart Shade Perfect & Correct Primer
    • Moisturising Eye Make Up Remover Pads
    • Clutch bag & a $5 off Almay voucher

So there is Part One of my massive haul. I will post the next part tomorrow, that will include products from MAC, Burberry & Giorgio Armani just to name a few...
