PUPA Cosmetics and Priceline Beauty Buys

Hello :)

My previous post was a haul and one of the brands that I talked about was PUPA cosmetics which comes from Italy. Priceline is having a clearance sale of 50% off all PUPA cosmetics. I went to a different Priceline store to which I normally go to and this was Priceline Pharmacy. This was also located in the city but this was my first time going into this one. There are 3 Pricelines in the city which doesn't really surprise me - it is a really popular store!

I'm so glad I decided to go to this particular Priceline, but at first I wasn't glad. I was looking around the whole shop for the PUPA cosmetics and I was so devastated that I couldn't find any on the shelves. I picked up a few things from their catalogue sales and just as I was about to leave the counter, I saw a box to my left... and YAY! Instead of being on the shelves as I expected, the PUPA products were in the box! I bought 3 PUPA cosmetics products. I have an early dismissal on Wednesday so I could go back there and buy more if there's any left haha.

Here are my lovely PUPA things:

I previously bought the the rectangle product which is the Duo Compact Eye Designer that I blogged about in my Haul. I didn't re-purchase

♥ Luminys Velvety Baked Blush in 04
♥ 4Eyes Multi-purpose Eyeshadow Palette in 01
♥ New Chic Intense Colour Lipstick in 05

Closer shots of each product:

It comes with a little brush. The brush isn't very soft and it doesn't smell too good so I choose not to use it when I apply this blush

I don't know about you but it kind of reminds me of MAC's Stereo Rose blush. I have never used it before nor have I ever seen it in front of me but judging by the looks of it online, it looks a bit similar to this. I can't say it's a duplicate so feel free to think otherwise haha.

I love these shades of blue! They are very soft
I shall do a look with these colours some time :)

Love the mirror finish of the tube inside the casing

Speaking of which, there's a mirror inside the casing! How handy is that eh?

It looks quite dark but it's actually lighter

It has a very neutral smell so the product doesn't have that bad lipstick smell. It is quite moist. I like it!

Now onto a few beauty buys at Priceline:

Revlon $4.95 Clearance Sale on selected items
I managed to grab myself a Revlon lip product which was a 'Protective Liptint SPF 15' in 000 Pink Rose.

Sorry my camera doesn't have very good focus. I plan to buy a new one at the end of the year.

So much product in this little tube, how awesome

A very pretty pink

Lovely 'tint' - it's more like a very moisturising lipstick! Very happy with this product and so happy to get it at a bargain price. It smells like a raspberry lolly and it makes me want to eat the lippie xD Of course I wouldn't do such a thing for real!

Bourjois 2 for $5 nail enamel
I never paid attention to Bourjois nail polishes. They usually retail for about $5 so this was like a buy one get one free deal. They are so small but so cute :)

Bourjois Nail Enamel in 61 & 56 (L-R)

I think there were only a few other colours to choose from. It's pretty obvious that my favourite colour is pink yeah? Hehe

Above: No flash. Below: Flash

When I applied it, it went on smoothly but I accidentally scratched a bit off before it dried :/ It's not the nicest swatch.. I couldn't be bothered removing it and re-painting etc. because I still had to remove it anyway. School doesn't allow nail polish!

This swatch is better. A very hot pink colour

It probably doesn't seem as though I bought a lot ay? Well I did ;) The rest is for my future giveaway I promise :D

I'll definitely be doing review and looks with the above stuff

Such a long post!

Thanks for reading,

xx Jennifer
