Post-exam buys...

I had my last exam this morning, so now I have a week off uni before the next trimester starts! I feel like I've worked pretty hard and needed a treat (or several) so after hearing about 50% off cosmetics at Chemist Warehouse, I made a brief stop...

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in 'Champagne Toast'
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in 'Glam Fest'
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in 'Purple Petals'
Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara
Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in 'Adorned'

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength (RRP $13.95, sale price $6.97)
I've been attracted to more neutral shades lately. I find that they look really classy and elegant. I also loved the name of this shade so I had to get it!

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Polishes (RRP $6.95, sale price $3.47)
These are so cheap normally and even better when on sale. I have a few polishes from this range and they do not disappoint! Heres to cheap thrills.

Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara (RRP $19.95, sale price $9.97)
Yes, another mascara...oh dear! I've started to stock pile them like a crazy mascara lady. I'm currently using the Maybelline Colossal Volume Express (what a mouthful!) which is decent...yeah, decent, I wouldn't say more than that. It gives great length and curl, but doesn't do much in terms of making your lashes look thick and volumised. But hopefully the Falsies one is okay...I remember using the regular Falsies mascara a few years ago and I really liked it. 

Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss (RRP 21.95, sale price $10.98)
Omg I have been drooling over this colour for so damn long. It's such a pretty fuschia shade! We sell Revlon at work and I'm always tempted, but $21.95 for a lipgloss is a bit steep for me. I have a whole collection of unused lip products that I haven't gotten around to using...I reaaally need to stop buying them but with sales this good, can you blame me? ;)

Overall, I'm pretty stoked with my purchases. Now that I'm uni free for a week, I'm excited to paint my nails with all my new polishes :)

Are you planning on checking out the 50% off sale?

  3. Congratulations on completing your exams! Hope you enjoy the one week break :)
    Was expecting amazing things from the Colossal Volume to be honest, because I loved the Falsies and Colossal is supposed to be better.
    Great products! x
