priceline haul

Aussie ladies, in case you’ve been hiding under a rock, Priceline has been doing one of their infamous 40% off cosmetics sales and today is their last day so head there after work or alternatively, shop online ūüôā

Anyway, I braved the masses today and went into Priceline with Bunty in a pram { yes, I got plenty of death stares as I crashed into ankles ūüėõ } and here’s what I bought…

Hello Kitty Has Arrived In Priceline And Here Is My Wee Haul

Ladies, ladies, ladies!!!!! ¬†*squee squee squee* ¬†I know I blogged earlier today, but you know, I had to blog again because guess who’s arrived in Australia? ¬†Hello Kitty make-up!!!!!!

Hello Kitty lipstick, Hello Kitty face powder

OMG!!!  I so could not resist and I had to buy!!!  Especially if you buy 2 items and you get a free plush toy!  WIN!!!!

The Hello Kitty make-up range starts from $9.95 to $14.95 and there were eyeshadows, nail polishes, blushers, powders, lip glosses and lipsticks.

Okay, so before you stomp down to Priceline, let me tell you what you HAVE to buy. ¬†You HAVE to buy the Hello Kitty Compact Powder that is for sure!!! ¬†Because why? ¬†Look….

Hello Kitty make-up at Priceline

ZOMG!!!  So adorbs!  A Hello Kitty embossed in the powder!  I am never going to use it!!  The metallic pink packaging is to die for!!!!

And here are the lipstick swatches if you are interested Рfrom left to right : 07-01, 07-03, 07-05 (I bought this one), 07-06, 08-01, 08-02, 08-04.  The 07 ones are from the Shine & Kiss lippy pink packaging range whereas the 08 are the matte shades and they are packaged in black.

The lid of the lipstick tube has a beautiful Hello Kitty engraved on it. ¬†It’s numbered with 07-05 but it’s actually called Baiser Vol√©. ¬†BEAUTIFUL!

The range at my Priceline in Doncaster must have just been newly launched today because none of the testers had been touched on the shelves so I happily swatched away till this lady barged in front of me and took over.  Erm, excuse me?!  Clearly, she is not a Hello Kitty fan!  I was decked out with my Hello Kitty handbag and Hello Kitty phone.  Pfft!!

Anyway, I wanted to buy Hello Kitty make-up items that I can take out in my Hello Kitty handbag, so forget the nail polish. ¬†Next on my wishlist are the eyeshadows and glittery lipglosses. ¬†Ooh, and there’s also another Hello Kitty plushy in a Hawaiian skirt.

Okay, if you buy anything, let me know!!

And before you ask, I aint gonna use these babies.  They are just too pretty!

Priceline Basic Care Hand & Nail Cream

As I am from Scotland, I usually go to Boots or Superdrug to buy my cosmetics and skincare products at affordable prices.  I have discovered the Australian equivalent which is Priceline, and it does special offers and has a loyalty reward card scheme too.

Anyway, I went browsing and on a whim, decided to buy some hand cream – Priceline Basic Care Hand & Nail Cream (100ml) for $2.00AUD.

Product Description

Priceline Basic Care Hand & Nail Cream is enriched with keratin to help strengthen nails and prevent splitting while moisturising and softening your hands.

My Opinions

  • Has a pleasant light flowery scent which is not too overpowering
  • Cream absorbs relatively well and does not leave a greasy film
  • But as for strengthening nails to prevent them from splitting, I am not too convinced about that because all my nails seem to be splitting recently
  • I’m not a snob but the packaging does look a bit basic (i.e. cheap)
  • Above average 6.5 out of 10

In conclusion : ¬†Priceline Basic Care Hand & Nail Cream, yes, you are cheap, but there’s not really much more to say about you…

BTW, Priceline has 20% off all marked prices for skincare and cosmetics (excluding sun care) for 2 days only Р27th and 28th October.  Guess what I will be doing tomorrow?
