Priceline: The Beauty Prescription [LIVE] 2017
Friday February 10, 2017 - Royal Randwick Racecourse, Grand Ballroom
A couple of weeks ago I got to attend my very first Priceline event! I had only heard amazing things about the past events so I was really excited to check it out for myself and see what all the hype was about!
To kick start the day we were greeted by a super delicious and healthy breakfast care of Oral B which we got to enjoy while we watched the presentation and learn about the 2016 best sellers, ambassadors and brand direction for 2017.
We were then treated to some tips and tricks from Pricelines ambassadors, makeup artist Rae Morris and hair stylist Kenneth Stoddart as modelled on the gorgeous Sam Harris. As you can see pushed back hair paired with a strong matte statement eye, wearable red lip and luminous youthful skin (powder free) is right on trend.
This was only the beginning. After the presentation the doors opened and we were invited to visit the stands of 50+ Priceline brands to discover their new releases coming soon.
Needless to say this event exceeded ALL my expectations and I got to learn a lot of new things. Not only about the new products launching but about Priceline and what they are doing to support women, men and have our health and beauty needs met!
In this blog post I am going to share a sneak peek at just SOME of the new makeup and beauty products coming soon to a Priceline store near you!
My all time favourite Rosehip Oil now comes in a Light Blend, YAY! With the same amazing certified organic properties as the original the new light blend is designed specifically for oily/combination skin and for those living in hot, humid climates - perfect for the weather we have been experiencing in Sydney the last few weeks! The formula blends and absorbs beautifully into the skin enriching and moisturising it with certified organic rosehip oil, jojoba seed oil and grapeseed oil. It is also fragrance free so it is ideal for those with sensitive skin.
Bourjois is a brand which has become a fast favourite over the last twelve months. From their Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Lipsticks to their popular round pot blushes they are a beautiful brand and the quality is second to none.
So I was excited to discover their new Volume Reveal Mascara. I was kindly gifted one and I have reached for it every day - it makes my lashes so long and voluminous, everything I look for in a mascara. The wand perfectly catches each of my lashes and gets right from root to tip and the magnifying mirror on the side of the case is perfect for applying on the go!
Another must have coming soon is the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor. This gel based, pigment-packed lip colour not only gives you shiny lips and beautiful colour but the hyaluronic acid delivers a boost of hydration. The slim casing holds the lipstick which is perfectly angled to sculpt the natural curves of your lips and glides right on to create the perfect pout! Available in 15 shades with a nicely scented formula this is definitely going to be a collect em all collection.
Pick up your favourite shade from Priceline on March 1 for $24.95.
The NYX booth was definitely one of my favourites! From the hot pink lockers to the Beauty School Dropout backpacks they nailed the old school high school feels.
But the main attraction was their new limited edition Beauty School Dropout 'Back to Basics' palette which has everything you need to create gorgeous and flawless makeup looks. Open up the palette to reveal a mirror, eye charts, 35 eyeshadows, 3 blushes and 4 sculpting shadows and at only $49.95 this is incredible value for such creamy and pigmented shadows.
This is a must have palette which I know will be hot fire once it hits shelves!
I love Real Techniques brushes for myself and my clients - they blend beautifully and are fantastic quality at a great price point. So when I saw the new Miracle Diamond Sponge I was excited to learn more!
Straight away I was attracted to the multi-faceted angles - the pointed tip perfect for blending the inner corner, sides of the nose and any hard to reach places while the large flat side will blend foundation flawlessly over the face. I also love the unique marble swirl throughout the sponge - right on trend! I was kindly gifted one to try so I will be sure to let you know my thoughts on it once I have tried it.
I am a huge fan of the Burt's Bees range of skincare and lip colours so I was excited to learn about their new 100% Natural Tinted Lip Oil coming soon to Priceline.
This is the perfect lip product for a sheer splash of colour and lots of hydration and shine! Available in 6 shades this non-sticky formula contains nutrient-rich Meadowfoam Seed and Coconut Oils which work to strengthen delicate skin. As soon as I applied this using the built in brush applicator my lips felt instantly hydrated and the sheerness of the colour was perfect for everyday!
As I listened to founder Renee Moore on the Priceline panel talking about her journey and how she came about creating the CINCH Face Cheat I was so inspired so as soon as those trade show doors opened I made a bee line for her booth. She was so lovely and explained that as a busy mum she didn't have the luxury of spending a long time getting ready and she needed a skincare solution which would actually work and only take seconds. So she designed Face Cheat, the 5-in-1 facial spray which primes, illuminates, moisturises, hydrates and minimises pores! I have been spritzing this over my face on my off duty makeup days and it makes my skin feel great and it only takes seconds so I can mist and run!
"Cinch is all about keeping beauty simple, by cutting down on the time and the products you need to keep your skin looking amazing. Our products are quick and easy to use with multiple benefits, so that instead of using five products, you can now give amazing face using just one."
I first heard about Manuka Doctor from an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Don't pretend you didn't see the episode where Kourtney had to prepare her speech as their global skincare ambassador. Anyway as soon as I saw their stand I rushed over to learn more about the range and the formula which includes their hero ingredient, Purified Bee Venom. Now I know what you may be thinking how do they extract bee venom without the bees being harmed. But after further research I can assure you that no bees are harmed in the collection of their venom as it takes place on a glass surface which ensures there is no loss to their stinger that would usually result in their death.
Bee Venom and Manuka Honey which are sourced from New Zealand are clinically proven to hydrate and support natural collagen production in the skin. I was kindly given the Gold Dust Firming Serum to try and it is also one of Kourtney's favourites so I will report back with my impressions soon!
I am a huge fan of Bondi Sand's Liquid Gold so I was excited to hear they had released an everyday gradual foaming tan for MEN! I think this is such a fabulous extension of their tanning range and now your man can enjoy that Bondi Sands golden glow too! This is coming very soon and will be available from Priceline for $17.95.
Did you know Priceline also fills prescriptions and does blood pressure checks? I get so distracted in the makeup aisles I did not know this but it just gives me an excuse to go there more regularly, you know for my health not my shopping addiction!

PS - keep your eyes peeled as a range of K-Beauty products are coming soon to a Priceline near you!
