Priceline Holo-Haul!

Priceline kicked my ass yet again with makeup sales before Christmas and I thought I’d share my surprisingly hologrammy buys! I know hologram is everywhere and it seems like late to the party, but I’ve been on the fence with a lot of products I’ve seen and if they would look good on my textured, oily goblin face.

I decided that since the sales were really good, I should at least grab some items and show them to you! I haven’t really tested these products yet to give a concrete review, but I have some swatches (albeit terrible camera work because shiny things always photograph well).

In general I actually really like summer but summer here in Australia is a time I dread because it does kick me in my ass physically, so I need to make sure I’m prepared.

Let’s take a deep breath, clutch onto a block of ice, and dive in.

*record scratch* You’re probably wondering where Elle is -you know- the late sometimes-“writer” of this blog that whines about anything costing over 30 dollars and swears way too much to be taken seriously by anyone. ‘I’m sure she isn’t cool enough for Clarins’ you might be thinking.. for which I’ll say yes I am and even though I know this, I’m a little insulted you thought that.

Yet here we are! Elle is reviewing some reputable skincare! Some reputable, science-based skincare at that.

Let’s cut to the chase and dive in.
