HEAT sale haul

Happy Monday!!! Yesterday I ventured to the HEAT group clearance sale in Scoresby for the first time ever by myself. I was all hyped up expecting it to be mega cheap but I was a little disappointed in the prices. For instance, Ulta3 nail polishes were priced at $2 - would have been nice if they were cheaper than retail. Having said that, it didn't stop me from buying stuff lol I picked up quite a bit of Essence eye shadows, some coloured eyeliners and bits & pieces of other stuff.

I spent a total of $54 for all the goodies below. Here are some prices (in case you were curious)
  • Bourjois $5
  • Essence $2
  • Covergirl $5
  • Elite Kabuki brush $4
  • Covergirl topcoat $1
I've read a few blogs raving about Essence eye shadows. Personally I've never tried Covergirl, Bourjois or Essence myself, so I grabbed a few to see what they are like. One day when I'm feeling brave, I'm going to try the smokey eye look.
I'm not sure why I needed 4 coloured eyeliners (I'm not a very adventurous person). Someone will need to teach me how to use coloured eyeliners, feel free to leave your tips in the comment section because I'm going to need it lol I did manage to try the Essence metallic blue eyeliner quickly yesterday. For some reason it was very soft and crumbly. It ended up getting stuck all over my bottom eyelashes (not a good look).
I also tried the Covergirl Advance Radiance concealer, it was wayyy too yellow on me. Kinda funny how it's too yellow on a yellow person lol Out of all the stuff I bought, the only item that I really 'needed' was the lip pencil, I been looking for one but since this was only $5 I thought why not? I need to stay away from these sales, I always get caught up in the moment and buy a bunch of stuff.

Have you been to the HEAT sales before? 

IMATS this weekend, more spending!!!

  10. Looks like you did very well! I skipped it as I've been before and I didn't really need anything this time. I did do some serious spending elsewhere though!

    The Essence products are pretty good and I have several of the same.

    With the coloured liner, you can do a thicker line on your upper lashline, then a thin line of black liner right on the lash line. Or just do a normal eye look and trace the liner on your lower waterline. :)

  17. Aww, I saw the HEAT sale being advertised on fb - wish we had these in Perth! $5 for the Bourjois products is so good!
    I went through a colour eyeliner rampage awhile back too...and many months later, they are still sitting unused on my dressing table. Definitely need to learn how to use them too, I think :)
