Priceline Beauty Haul! | The Brunette

IMG_9609[1]

Hi guys! A few weeks ago me and the Blonde went on a little shopping spree… This of course meant we stopped by some beauty stores, the main one being Priceline. When we visited Priceline they had a special Mother’s Day offer, if you spend $60 or more on selected cosmetics brands, you would receive a black bag full of other cosmetic goodies! Me and the Blonde went half-half because neither of us wanted to spend the full $60 on our own bags, meaning we shared the things inside. The Blonde has already shown you the things she bought for her $30 and the freebies she recieved, and I will be doing that right now!

Weekend Haul! | The Blonde

20140511-132852.jpg

Hello All!

Yesterday the Brunette and I went on a (small) shopping spree. I noticed that Priceline had a special Mother’s Day sale on where if you spend $60 you get a bag full of freebies! (It ends today so be quick!). The brunette and I went halfsies and spent $30 each. Now, of course there was a catch, which was that you could not change the colour of any of the products to match your skin tone. Fortunately Louiseee and I have very different skin colours! Above is picture of everything I got.

This is what I bought:

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Flex Mascara (Green Bottle) $13.56 (usually $16.95)

Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Express Eye & Lip Makeup remover $6.95

Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 003 (Peach Glow) $10.36 (usually $12.95)

That’s over $110 worth of freebies!!! I will do a review on each of the products soon.

I’m pretty sure that the colours varied in the nail products. The Brunette will upload her haul post which will include what the other freebies we received were! Tell me if you’ve tried any of these products before, I’d love to know if I got good freebies or just the bad products from each brand haha!

Byeee for now! xx The Blonde

How Well Do You Know… Tag | The Blonde

Heya All!

The Brunette and I have decided to do a new tag which we thought up (and has probably been done before but still..). We emailed each other a list of 20 questions about ourselves which the other had to try and answer. I tag anyone that wants to attempt this with a close friend/co-blogger, go on I dare you. Any questions are allowed, make it reasonably difficult but not completely ridiculous. This is the list of questions I sent The Brunette and the answers that I got :-). My questions are bold font, answers are normal and my comments in italics.

Make-Up on a Budget – The Double Take | The Brunette

webcam 002

~My First Post

Hi! I’m Louiseee, one of the authors here on The Brunette and the Blonde Diaries, me obviously being the Brunette. Who else out there struggles with money when it comes to shopping and make-up? I know I do, so today I’m going to be showing you some make-up items that serve a double purpose so you can save your money for more important stuff, like that cute little handbag you’ve had your eye on for agessss. 😉 So without further ado, let’s get started! 🙂

 

Lipstick

I’m starting off with one of the most common products that people use twice, lipstick. If you’re one of those people who hates spending $15-20 on a good quality lipstick and then forking out another $25-30 for a good quality cream blush, this make-up double is for you! After applying your lipstick, swipe it on the apples of your cheeks in circles and blend with a blush brush or your fingers. Ta-da! now you have a lipstick AND a cream brush for more than half the price! 🙂 I’ve also heard of lipstick being used as cream eye shadow, but I wouldn’t recommend it as lipstick has not been tested for the eyes.

Mascara

I myself was a bit skeptical when someone told me this make-up double-up, but now I swear by it. Before applying your mascara, take the mascara wand out and get an eyeliner brush and gently dip it into the formula and use as normal gel liner. It works fantastically and has definitely replaced some of my eyeliner pencils! You can also used cleaned mascara wands as a brow brush to set all your hairs in place. 🙂

Eye Liner

Mascara may have replaced some of my eyeliner, but not all of them, especially since eye liner has more than 2 uses as makeup! Obviously, you use them to line your eyes, but you can also use them as a subtle eye shadow by cross-hatching the lines lightly on your inner corners and blending outwards, making sure to get rid of all the lines. If you have an eye liner close to your brow colour, you can also use an eyeliner pencil as your brow pencil, and it works just as well! 🙂 And the final use for eye liner is as a lip pencil, especially if you have coloured liners, just use as you normally would for a lip pencil 🙂

Hope you save lots of moolah with these Make-up Double-up items, and look out for more Make-Up on a Budget blog posts 🙂

A Natural Make Up Look | The Blonde

20140423-160412.jpg

First post ~ A natural makeup look

Hello there! Welcome to The Brunette and Blonde Diaries! I’m Lucehhh and I am The Blonde. My co-author, Louiseee is The Brunette! We are the two authors of this blog but we are happy to have guest posts! For our first post I have decided to create a natural make up look for all the young readers. Because I am a young person I think that a lot of the bloggers on here create make up looks for people in their twenties (or late, late teens ;)) so I have created a look for those younger bloggers/blog readers.

Products:
-Simple facial moisturiser
-Natio Mineral Pressed Powder (Medium Tan)
-Nude By Nature BB Cream (Light)
-Covergirl Intense Shadow Blast (I assume it is the colour “Brown Bling” which I looked up on Priceline, the bottle has no colour on it.)
-Designer Brands Kohl Eyeliner (Black)
– Juvena Powder Eyeshadow Duo (Number 52 – Gold) I cannot find this product online, I got it from my grandma. It was a gold coloured eyeshadow but I doubt that “gold” is it’s actual name. I think the Juvena brand may have closed down.
-Crabtree & Evelyn Lip Butter (Vanilla Creme Brûlée)
-Maybelline Lipstick (Are You Red-dy?)
-Revlon Supe Lustrous Lipgloss (010 – Shine City)

Procedure
1. Firstly cleanse your skin using your favourite cleanser, then apply your moisturiser ( I used simple’s facial moisturiser).
2. Put on your powder (I recently read that putting powder on before foundation/BB Cream works better and I decided to try it) and then apply your BB Cream. Fingers work best.
3. Cover your lips in the lip butter and put on your lipstick.
4. Smear some BB cream onto your eyelids as a sort of primer. Put a thin line of eyeliner onto your eyelid. On top of this line draw another line with the colour blast eyeshadow.
5. Finally, using the gold eyeshadow add a line just below your eyebrow and a small amount to your inner eye.
AND YOUR FINISHED!
