So, out shopping today for birthday presents but if you don’t know me very well, then you’ll find I do present shopping for myself at the same time
So I head into Priceline – for any international readers, it’s a Girly store that sells make up, perfume, toiletries, gifts, toothpaste, vitamins etc – and instantly I want to buy all the perfumes because they are all on sale! I tell myself NO! you are out buying presents… So I stop myself. This is extremely hard because I love perfume. I move on because I have to actually buy things that I need.
Head to the make-up counters and see Bourjois is offering a free gift if you spend $19. From what I could tell, the lowest priced item is $20 – to me this is instant winning!! I buy foundation because it’s something I wear everyday for work.
I purchase the flower perfection youth extension foundation as it seems to be the feature item on the wall. It comes with a washable sponge – awesome! It cost me $34. I was excited about the free gift because it came in this box:
When I opened it up it was wrapped in tissue paper. You know it’s good when it’s in tissue paper! So I received a rose exclusif lipgloss and volume glamour ultra curl mascara – worth approx $42. Coincidentally I receive a sample of the foundation i just bought. I’ve gotta say that the lipgloss is amazing! It’s a transparent gloss that self adjusts its pink colour when applied It also has a sweet scent kind of like candy rather than rose (but this could be my nose playing tricks one me)
This is what the products looked like:
Moving on from this counter, I randomly stumble upon a Hello Kitty counter! Say what now? A Hello Kitty counter!!
So, they were offering a free body spray with any purchase – score!! I look thoroughly at each product. I felt that I already have too many eyeliners, eyeshadows and nail polish and don’t need powder or foundation, so I go for the lipgloss and lipsticks because I feel you can never have too many of those I buy a shimmery bright pink lipgloss and this amazingly outstanding pinky purple lipstick.
I believe the bright pinks are making a comeback. I used to wear pink lipstick all the time when I was about 8 years old and I thought I was the coolest but now since I know how to experiment with colours and not look like a nincompoop, it’s something I am excited at testing out. By making this purchase I received a melon body mist which smells amazingly fruity and fabulous. I think the products I bought are great to wear out for a Girly night and keeping it flirty and fun or if you just want to brighten up an outfit through your make-up. I’m all about the pinks in general.
If you don’t know me, then you’ll soon find out that I love Hello Kitty! It’s also because I’m Asian
If you’re out and about, be sure to look at the specials. Don’t be afraid to ask which items are on sale and see if you receive free gifts. I feel that if you love a brand or product and they offer free gifts, then you win because you gain products you wouldn’t have thought to try before and sort of save money at the same time as you have more products for one original price – well that’s how i see it anyway
So girls head out to Priceline if you want to score some freebies with your purchases. Priceline never disappoints!!
