Navigating Chemist Warehouse is equally as thrilling as it is chaotic. Neon labels, narrow aisles and crowds of shoppers are overwhelming, there’s no doubt about it. Now imagine that, but everything is half price. Pure mayhem. Truthfully, if it were anything other than makeup (or skin care, hair care and fragrance) we’d advise you to stay home and protect your personal space. But, there’s 50 per cent off cosmetics (right now!) and all the big names like Maybelline, essie, Revlon and Rimmel are involved.
How long have we got to shop our favourite makeup items at half price?
Hours, days, weeks? The exact end date remains a mystery. Our best advice? Move quickly.
So, if you’re looking for a new mascara or think it’s time to test out a fresh foundation, here are nine products we’ll be shopping in the sale.
Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara
This drugstore mascara went viral on TikTok for its flexible brush which separated and curved each individual lash in just one coat. As for the formula, bamboo extract and fibres allow for an extension-like finish without weighing down the lashes.
“I got this as a recommendation from a friend, and it is now one of my favourite mascaras! I bought a very black tube, and it was pretty cheap. The wand is long and the bristles are not too long making it easier to use. I really like this mascara because it colours my lashes and does not clump at all.” – Zoeee

Nude by Nature Travel Brush
There’s no beauty kit that wouldn’t benefit from this multi-use, retractable makeup brush. Whether you’re travelling or just want something that won’t take up prime real estate in your handbag, this is not an item to sleep on.
“The brush is encased in a strong sturdy steel like material. Looks very sleek and minimalist. Easy to clean with a gentle foaming detergent. Just ensure it is thoroughly dried before closing and using again. This is a great brush and it has lived in my handbag for a couple of years.” – Beauty Obsession

Nude By Nature Hydra Serum Tinted Skin Perfector
Boy oh boy, don’t we love a tinted serum, and even more so when they’re under $20. Enriched with jojoba seed oil and vitamin E, Nude By Nature’s lightweight formula creates a dewy, skin-like finish.
“I chose the shade Porcelain as my skin is fair with pink undertones. I found the shade to match well, once applied to the skin (using fingers) it blended in quite well and did not look streaky or mask-like, the coverage is very light and sheer.” – Amazeballs16

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in ‘Coffee Shimmer’
If you’re not already familiar with the drugstore lipstick selections, here’s an amazing place to start. Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish Lipstick offers colour, coverage, shine and comfort thanks to its glide-on formula and unique Colour Protect Technology. Though it’s available in seven stunning shades, our favourite to pick up during this scale is ‘Coffee Shimmer’.
“Even though I usually prefer to use a lip gloss rather than a lip stick, I have been using this lipstick in a nude shade a lot lately, because it makes your lips stand out enough for when your going out, but is also good for day time because it comes in some nice subtle shades. Great lipstick at a great price!” – Ray

Maybelline New York FIT me! Liquid Foundation
This is a drugstore foundation that has earned itself a stellar rep for covering without caking. The breathable formula leaves the skin looking natural and feeling comfortable, while the micro-fine pigments blend to match each skin tone accordingly.
“As a dry skin gal, I’ve been through numerous ‘dewy’ foundations before I gave up and went to a BB cream. Then Fit Me came into my life and I haven’t looked back!” – Hoots

Revlon Beauty Tool Volcanic Stone Facial Roller
As a result of TikTok virality, this oil-absorbing beauty tool sold out in the US, which led to its Australian release date being brought forward. So not only do we have the option of buying this reusable, mattifying and dare we say magic tool on the other side of the world, but we are also able to snap it up at half price.

Plus, a built-in brush specifically designed to transfer the exact amount of product to your lids each time. With 12 deliciously named shades to choose from like Praline and Creme Brulee, we’re spending our $7 on the pale gold ‘Honey’.
“It dries down to a powder and it has a metallic finish that is just so flattering. I would highly recommend giving this a go, even if you have never used cream shadows before because it doesn’t apply like a normal cream shadow. I just love it so much.” – JMenz

For a nail polish shade that needs no introduction, essie’s Ballet Slippers is a no-brainer to stock up on. As far as neutral polishes go, this sheer pink hue secured its place as our go-to for just about any occasion. Oh, it was also Meghan Markle’s wedding polish. Need we say more?
“It’s beautiful and super easy to apply it on, and the actual nail polish liquid lasts so many years and doesn’t go off at all and doesn’t start looking weird. it’s very much worth giving Essie Nail Polish a go.” – Duaa2202
