Highstreet Haulin'

Sales at Priceline get me every time. I just can't resist a bargain, so when I got an email announcing that Maybelline was currently half price, who was I not to get involved?! I also picked up some bits from Rimmel as they had 20% off. For Aussie gals, the sale continues until August 25th so make the most of it!I think I was pretty restrained seeing how good the deals were, but I'll let you make your own decision on that.

I haven't had a chance to try out any of these products yet as I wanted to quickly get this post up so Aussie beauty gals can check out the sale before it's over. I'm sure there will be reviews on all these products coming soon, but in the mean time you can always tweet me (@annablush_) with any questions.

I decided to stock up on mascaras so went for Volume Express One by One and Mega Plush. Maybelline are pretty well known for their mascaras and I though this was a good opportunity to give some a go.

My love for Maybelline's Colour Tattoo's is well documented, check out this post here if you're interested. I absolutely love the formula and when I saw this colour I just could not resist adding it to my collection. It's Barely Branded from the metal collection, a shimmery, champagne colour which I think will make a perfect base for a neutral eye or just applied alone for a little sheen. If the formula is as good as the original collection, expect to hear a lot more about this little pot of pretty.

I also decided to pick up a new foundation as all of mine seem to be just a tad too dark for my winter skin. This is from the Fit Me line and I picked up the shade 120. I haven't heard much about this foundation so am interested to see how it goes.

I blame these last two purchases whole heartedly on Anna. She has raved about the formula of these Rimmel Salon Pro polishes for quite some time now so when I saw they had arrived on Australian shores, of course I had to pick some up. The two colours I chose were Reggae Splash (the pale orange) and Punk Rock (dark grey). Let's just say I am very excited to lacquer one of these on tonight, but which one?...

  2. When they have the sales on it is just hard to resist the temptation, isn't it? I keep telling myself: I have a similar shade lipstick but that does NOT stop me at all!

    I love the Maybelline shadow - I will have to look out for it.


  3. I love the look of barely branded and I've been lusting over those nailpolishes because of Anna too! haha xx

  18. I always wanted to try out the Fit Me line, especially its foundation and concealer! looking forward to a review ;)


  19. Can`t wait to here some reviews on these products. A lot I haven`t yet tried, either. However, I have been a massive lover of the Barely branded color tattoo! Love it for everyday, basic wear, as a base, or with heavy gel/liquid liner.
