It’s that time of week… when the weekend is almost within reaching distance but not quite here, work seems to be going at a snail’s pace and your finger is impatiently twitching for some online shopping. Twitch.
Let us be of assistance. (Unfortunately we can’t do anything about making the weekend come faster, as much as we’d like to. Sorry.)
In case you missed it, Mamamia launched Mamamia Shopping yesterday, a site packed full of all the best products at bargain prices. If you’re looking to stock up on your beauty goodies, here are the best savings this week.
1. The Original Make Up Eraser, usually $32, now $19.99.
Save money and the environment at the same time. This makeup eraser is pure magic, removing your makeup with just water in one easy swipe. Perfect for travelling, it can be chucked in the washing machine between uses and is reusable for up to 1000 washes.
2. Tangle Teezer The Original Wet & Dry Detangling Hairbrush in Blueberry Pop, usually $29.99, now $18.99.
If you don't already own one of these, this will be a game-changer. Making brushing hair pain-free and easy, it's suitable for all hair types but I've found it particularly great on curly hair.
3. Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in 04 Medium, usually $42, now $32.99.
Five years ago, no-one 'did' their eyebrows. Now it seems you can't leave the house with at least four lotions and potions in those hairy strips above your eyes. Fortunately, this brow pencil makes things easier. As the name suggests, it really is un-mess-up-able, with a handy spoolie and long-lasting formula.
4. Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3 100ml, usually $49.95, now $34.99.
There's a reason hairdressers have been raving about this product. It helps to minimise damage to hair when dyeing - brunette to blonde really can happen in a day now - as well as strengthening hair as an at-home treatment.
5. NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Palais Royal, was $34, now $19.
Forget faffing around with lip liner and lipstick, this chubby crayon combines the lot. Slim enough to be precise but large enough to cover lips in seconds, the silky formula is comfortable to wear and the colour highly pigmented.
5. Glamglow SuperMud Clearing Treatment, usually $98, now $64.95.
Beauty lovers have long been using GlamGlow but let's be honest, they're not exactly budget friendly. Now's your chance to try the frankly brilliant masks for a slightly more affordable price. Pass it forward and tell a mask-loving friend about this one too.
6. Estée Lauder Modern Muse EDP 50mL, usually $130, now $79.99
They say don't judge a perfume by its bottle... luckily this scent delivers in all areas. The sophisticated bottle holds a light and floral scent that's not too flowery, with citrusy top notes and patchouli, amber, musk and vanilla base notes balanced out by tuberose, lily and honeysuckle.
7. theBalm Mary Lou Manizer, usually $35, now $19.99.
This highlight is usually sold out everywhere, so get in quick. The honey-hued luminizer can be used as a highlighter, eyeshadow or body shimmer.
8. Aesop Coriander Seed Body Cleanser 500mL, usually $85.95, now $45.99.
Coriander may be divisive when it comes to meals, but in a body cleanser it's indisputable. It does good. Enhanced with coriander seeds and black pepper corns, this aromatic body wash cleanse, calms and warms the skin.
9. Sebastian Volupt Shampoo & Conditioner Duo 1L, usually $141.95, now $59.99.
Yep, you read that right - that's a saving of over $80. This professional hair care duo is great for bringing volume and life into flat hair. It's no wonder it's disappearing fast!
10. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm 50mL, usually $65, now $42.99
A skincare staple, this is the kind of product you keep in every bag you own. Use to awaken or refresh your skin without the thick oily formulas of other creams.
