Half Price Makeup Haul!



Oh hey, everyone! This post is all about my Half Price Makeup Haul from the end of last week. Chemist Warehouse hold some amazing sales, and their Big Brand Cosmetics Sale is still on! If you're interested in 50% Off the entire range of Rimmel, Maybelline, L'Oreal, Revlon, Nude By Nature and Sally Hansen, haul arse to Chemist Warehouse by May 25, because that's when the sale ends!

Some ways you can shop the half price sale:

~ use the opportunity to stock up on your staple products
~ use the opportunity to try products you've had your eye on for a while
~ use the opportunity to grab some new release makeup
~ use the opportunity to buy Birthday gifts for your family and friends
~ take the plunge and buy that expensive palette, it's half price after all
~ if you're a Blogger, buy some items for an Instagram or blog Giveaway

Now onto my Haul!



I picked up another Maybelline Masterliner eyeliner (pictured in the top photo), because I go through them quite quickly, and even though I already have a backup, I know I'll need a second backup sooner or later. Another semi-staple product is the Maybelline BabyLips ElectroPop Lip Balm in Berry Bomb. I've just finished one of these and I absolutely love the shade. Despite it looking scary in the tube, it's a sheer balm, so applies as a subtle hint of colour. My only criticism of this product is that since the balm extends high above the tube rim, you have to be careful not to take a chunk out of it when replacing the lid until you get it level with the twist tube. And the last Maybelline product, which I'm pretty excited about, is the BabyLips Balm & Blush in Juicy Rose. It's so cute and I can't wait to try it!

Next I went a little nail polish crazy and picked up four bottles! I've been loving the Rimmel 60 Seconds Super Shine range lately (I'm currently sporting Port-A-Loo Blue), and when I saw a gorgeous bright orange shade called Orgasm, I had to have it. It kind of makes up for the fact that I don't own the cult NARS Blush in Orgasm, in a round about way! There was a beautiful lavender shade called Lovey Dovey nearby, so I chucked that in my basket as well, because why not?

I've been lusting after the L'Oreal Color Riche Vernis a l'Huile (what a mouthful!) nail lacquer ever since seeing it on Instagram, mainly for the stunning packaging, so I was not passing this opportunity up! My eye was immediately drawn to Fuchsia Palace (330), which is exactly my kind of shade! Then I was excited to spot a gorgeous classic red called Rouge Sauvage (550). I seriously considered all the types of red in the collection, but I've always wanted the perfect iconic red, because it looks stunning with black, and I do tend to wear a lot of black! So happy I got these!

  1. I'm torn... on the one hand I'm thinking "Oh thank goodness Di posted about this! I didn't know this stuff was on sale!" - on the other hand I'm thinking "dangit if Di hadn't posted about this I wouldn't have known and been tempted to buy more stuff" ;)
    Awesome choices/haul. I have waaaaay too many nail polishes but I'd be curious to try the liner!

    1. That's really what I should be doing (decluttering) instead of buying new things! The struggle is real!

  10. Nice hauling Di! I LOVE a good sale. Every girl needs a classic red polish in her stash I reckon. (I have a few reds, but I can't say whether they're "classic" or not.)

  15. Absolutely love what you bought Di - those polishes are divine colours, and I agree those L'Oreal bottles are just so ritzy and glam. I didn't indulge this time around - don't know if I was silly or smart. Anyhoo, there's always another sale around the corner hey ♥♥♥
