It's that time of the year again!

Yeap! Christmas, is what I'm talking about.

The festive season guarantees lots of sales around the corner, some of which I've spotted in stores and from catalogues. Thought I'd be cute and compile a post to share with y'all! (*/∇\*)

I won't take responsibility for enabling you though!


1. BIG W: 40% OFF all cosmetic brands, except Boe Beauty, Thin Lizzy, Barry M and Christmas gift sets. Ends 2 December.
TIP: If you've missed Priceline's recent 40% cosmetics deal, then this one is one to look out for. Brands like essence, Physician's Formula and such won't be there, but if you need something from the regular brands (such as Maybelline, Revlon, Australis, FOA), then now is the time to snag! If you're thinking of buying lots of back-ups, then perhaps just wait for Chemist Warehouse's 1/2 deal which actually happens more than occasionally. 

2. WOOLWORTHS: 40% OFF L'Oreal Skincare and Maybelline. Ending date unkwn.

3. WOOLWORTHS: 25% OFF MUD Make Up. I know this is a cheap brand, but if you've spotted something from them that you like, then now's the chance, as they rarely do sales. Ending date uknwn.

4. WOOLWORTHS: If you've been eye-ing COVERGIRL's latest Star Wars collection, then I'm pretty sure this $10 deal on the limited edition's products would be cheaper than Big W's 40% off deal. Ending date uknwn.

5. WOOLWORTHS: All NIVEA Suncare 1/2 price. Prepare for this heaaaaaaat! Ending date uknwn..

6. PRICELINE: 1/2 PRICE on selected fragrances -- if you need to do Xmas shopping, do it now! Ends December 1.

7. PRICELINE: 30% off GARNIER. Ends 1 December.

8. PRICELINE: 1/2 PRICE on Simple's wipes -- the value pack of 2 drops to $5.49 each! That's less than $2.80 a pack! (lol, do I sound like an ad?) Ends 1 December.

9. COLES: HALF price on Rimmel London -- already restocked on my fave Wake Me Up Foundation, hehe. Ends 1 December.

10. SEPHORA: Aaaaand I'm just gonna leave this here, with special thanks to Tez on TMUS.

Thank Buddha, I've already done my Christmas shopping, and took advantage of all the deals that's been happening recently.

Big W's 40% sale happens today, and goes for the next 6 days. However, I've already got what I needed from Priceline's 40% sale (which I'll blog about soon!) so... count me out! ヽ(゚∇゚)ノ

Which shopaholic will be browsing Big W today? Tell me! 

Let me know!

NEW ON COUNTER (NOV 2015): Rimmel London, Australis, Natio, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Nutrimetics

Hope everyone had a spooky non-pukey Halloween!

This month's launches will also include some Christmas listings, as these Xmas specials are set to launch in November anyways. Thought I'd include them here.

I've only included SOME that I found appealing (mainly make-up too, cas that's what I'm all about heh), because there are 325165653 products! ◑.◑

Nevertheless, it'll still be a loooooooooong post, so get ready to scroll!

RIMMEL LONDON Match Perfection Foundation SPF20 ($18.95/8 shades)
I'm such a big fan of Rimmel's foundations. It is probably my go-to brand for foundations, so I do wonder what this one's like as it's claimed to be "designed to be perfect" by providing protection and hydration for the skin. It's apparently weightless, traceless and provides skin caring coverage. Formulated [somehow] to provide 24 hour moisture and SPF 20 protection! However, the shade range only seems to cater for the very light to medium/dark. Eep. 

I also wonder if it's a revamp of the range, or a brand new range?

RIMMEL LONDON Fix & Protect Makeup Primer with SPF 25 ($13.95)
A make-up primer that helps skin stay matte for up to 7 hours. Claims to protect the skin against pollution, filters out UV rays and has SPF25 to help prevent hyperpigmentation.

AUSTRALIS Tanning Collection 
I don't know why, but it's no longer surprising to me when cosmetic brands take on tanning products. I guess, after seeing Rimmel and Face Of Australia doing it, it kinda died down for me? Haha, not a tanner anyways, so it never really appealed. It might to you [for this summer] though!

  • Tanning Let's Go Steady Face Moisturiser ($19.99) -- a streak-free tanning lotion for the face, with a streak free finish. A lightly-tinted and non-sticky lotion that gradually builds over the next days. Suitable for all skin types, fast drying.
  • Tanning Let's Go Steady Body Mosturiser ($19.99) -- claims are same as above. 

  • Tanning One Night Tan Off Mousse ($19.99) -- a no-commitment wash off tan with a streak-free finish. Suitable for all skin types, Water and transfer resistant, fast drying. 
  • Tanning Rapid Aerosol ($22.99) -- A streak-free self tanning spray. 

  • Tanning Rapid Lotion ($22.99) -- Streak-free tanning lotion, suitable for all skin types. Provides a chocolate coloured tan.
  • Tanning Rapid Mousse Chocolate Base ($22.99) -- A chocolate-coloured tanning mousse. 
  • Tanning Rapid Mousse Purple Base ($22.99) -- A purple-tinted chocolate coloured tanning mousse. The blend is [apparently] ideal to counteract orange tones in medium/olive skin tones.

  • Tanning Mitt Application ($22.99) -- Aaaaaaand how could we miss a tanning mitt! A pack of three tannning mitts, designed with micro-sponge technology. Includes an exfoliating mitt, body application mitt, mini-face application mitt. 

NATIO Blushing Blooms - Cream to Powder Blushes ($13.95/4 shades)
These are blushers which accentuates the cheekbones with a pop of radiant colour. Offers a dewy tint, and also builds easily. 

NATIO Blush Blooms - Rich Lip Colours ($12.95/4 shades)

A mechanical lip liner promises a creamy texture, convenient application and intense colour. Water resistant.

ESTEE LAUDER Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact ($68/12 shades)
A foundation that is, supposedly, ideal for all skin types as it features a-lot-of-things-that-even-if-I-list-em-we-probably-won't-know-what-they-are (lol) to hydrate the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
