Chemist Warehouse is currently having a great promotion – 50% off the entire range of Rimmel London, Revlon, Maybelline New York & Sally Hanson products. Although I didn’t need anything, I couldn’t resist such a great sale so I headed into my local Chemist Warehouse this morning with a small list of items I wanted to purchase, though I somehow ended up spending $80!! I definitely picked up a few things I didn’t need but why not snap them up during the sale and save some $$$!
So here is my haul!
Maybelline New York Color Tattoo by EYESTUDIO Eyeshadows
RRP: $11.95 Purchase Price: $5.97
After reviewing these in Bold Gold, Tough as Taupe and Bad to the Bronze which you can find here (with swatches) : https://triedandtestedblog.wordpress.com/2013/04/28/maybelline-new-york-color-tattoo-by-eyestudio-eyeshadows-review-and-swatches/ I decided to add to my collection because they’ve now become a staple in my makeup collection. I’m always wearing one of these eyeshadows when I only have a short time to get ready in the morning.
I purchased them in :
– Pomegranate Punk – Too Cool – Audacious Asphalt
Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner
RRP: $9.95 Purchase Price: $4.97
After falling in love with this range of eyeliners that I also previously reviewed here (complete with swatches and tests to their claims): https://triedandtestedblog.wordpress.com/2013/05/12/rimmel-london-scandaleyes-waterproof-kohl-kajal-eyeliners-review-and-swatches/ I didn’t have the intention of purchasing any more of these as the colours that I already own were already perfect for me, I stumbled upon a shade that I hadn’t seen before from this range in any stores – Sparkling Black. It builds upon the basic black eyeliner in this range by adding glitter pigments.
Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer
RRP: $5.95 Purchase Price: $2.97
I actually purchased 4 of these: Born With It, Keep Up The Flame, Carbon Frost (Shredded/Cracked effect) and Onyx Rush. As I was walking home, I also had another 2 quite large and heavy bags from shopping and decided to swap hands to carry the bags, all I can say is…BIG MISTAKE! The Chemist Warehouse bag smashed onto the car park floor and I instantly knew what had happened, a nail polish bottle had smashed open. I quickly ran home and found Onyx Rush broken into 2 with its contents leaking onto all my purchases and the bag. It was a big cleanup job to say the least.
Revlon Gift Pack
RRP: $29.95 Purchase Price: $12.49
I initially saw this when I was actually looking for a perfume for a friend’s Birthday present and this was on display on a shelf next to the perfumes, I believe it was a gift pack advertised as a Mother’s Day gift. I grabbed one of them as it seemed like a great deal for $29.95 as it is valued at $63.85 and contain a Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara, Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter and a Dual Eye and Lip Makeup Remover for Longwear. To me, it was such a bargain as a Lip Butter alone here in Australia costs a bit over $20 if I remember correctly, so it was a definite buy for me. When I went to the counter to pay for all my purchases, I asked the attendant to check the price for me, remembering that Revlon had 50% off and IT WAS! The original price on the receipt states $24.99 unlike the packaging that states it as $29.95. The attendant then told me that with the 50% off offer, it came done to $12.49 and as someone who has a slight addiction to purchase anything with a great discounted price, I went and grabbed 2 more packs! Now thinking back, I may actually go back and purchase another 2 packs because for $12.49, it truly is an absolute steal, there’s nothing else to say!
I also picked up:
– Sally Hansen Strengthening Nail Polish Remover
RRP: $5.45 Purchase Price: $2.72
– Sally Hansen No More Ridges Nail Shaper and Buffer
RRP: $4.95 Purchase Price: $2.47
– Sally Hansen Advanced Hard as Nails Strengthener
RRP: $9.25 Purchase Price: $4.63
– Maybelline New York Baby Lips Color Lip Balm
RRP: $3.95 Purchase Price: $1.98
