Ebay Beauty Bargains

Hello beauty lovers I hope that you are all doing well, I have been doing a lot of online shopping lately, which is probably due to the weather being so cold so I don't want to leave me house aha, But I have been seeing some real bargains especially on eBay, and if you are like me and love bargains I would definitely recommend checking out eBay, All of the items listed below are all under £10 which i think is great value for money, the only disadvantaged of this is that the delivery can take a while as a lot of the item are from china and places like that, but I don't really mind waiting that little bit longer so that I have more money to spend on limited edition MAC (saving up to buy everything from the Cinderella collection). 

  1. 120 Colours Eyeshadow Eye Shadow Palette colourful
  2. 24 lipstick holder organiser
  3. 120 Colours Eyeshadow Eye Shadow Palette neutral
  4. 10pcs Kabuki Style Professional Make up Brush Set
  5. 15X Design DIY Acrylic Painting Tool UV Gel Pen Polish Nail Art Brush Set Kit
  6. 12 Colours Glitter Lip Liner Eye Shadow Eyeliner Pen
  7. Silicone Cleaning Cosmetic Makeup Brush egg
  8. 12 Mineral Glitter Eye Shadow Pigment
  9. 15 Colour Sheer Concealer Camouflage Palette
I would love to know if you have tried any of these items and what you think about them, also if you have found any other eBay bargains I would love to know as I know that there are many, therefore I may do a part two which could be a fashion one not sure yet so make sure to follow me on bloglovin so you don't miss out.

February Lip Monthly Be a bombshell, so susan, Cargo, jelly pong pong swatches and review

woohoo its that time of the month again when I share with you what I received in my February lip monthly subscription, if you are not aware of this subscription services then check out my Lip Monthly Subscription blog. I was very surprised to receive my Lip Monthly this early as I do normally get it around the last few days of the month, as the service is based within the us, however the bag is related to valentines days so they may have sent it out early, but it still didn't get here before valentines day. Oh and could we take a minute to admire the makeup bag I am in love!

MAC Haul - Isabel and Ruben Toledo, ultimate collection swatches and review

Hello all you beauty lovers I hope you are all doing well, today I thought I would share with you my most recent MAC haul. A week ago I received a delivery from MAC and was quite confused as I have been on a spending ban and haven't purchased anything from Mac for nearly three weeks, so I thought it was something I ordered and forget about. However when I opened the package I was 100% sure that I never ordered these items and I thought that they had been sent to me by mistake aha. That was until my boyfriend got home and asked if I liked my early valentines presents, I was completely speechless as I had never even seen one of the collections he had brought me. He then explained to me that he was scrolling through depop (buying and selling app very much like eBay) and a someone had posted that there was a glitch on the MAC website and that one of the lipsticks from the Toledo collection had been released early and he was able to ordered it as well two lipsticks and the mystery powder from the ultimate collection. And Ii would just like to say ignore the messy application of the lipsticks ahaa didn't realised it looked that bad until I posted the pictures.

Valentines day Nails

Hello beauty lovers I hope you are all doing well,I thought that I would do something different for a change on my blog so I thought I would do a valentines days inspired nail look, with step by step instructions and pictures. I would also like to say that I am in no way a nail artist and just do my nails for fun, I have been scrolling through pictures on the Internet on places such as pintrest and found this really cute nail design which is perfect for valentines day, however I don't really wear red nail polish so I decided to use PINK! as it is my favourite colour.

Elle Magazine Freebie!

Hello beauty lovers I hope you are all doing well, I thought that I would do a quick post about what I discovered today in ASDA. So you will hardly ever find me reading magazines unless I am in the hairdressers and still then I am just flicking through looking at the pictures. However if you are a beauty bargain hunter and love benefit products like me, than you should pick up the march issue of Elle magazine as you will receive a FREE!!! benefit roller lash mascara that hasn't even be sold by benefit yet, therefore if you want to try out this mascara first then make sure to pick it up, it should be sold in most supermarkets and retails at £4. The mascara claims to be a super curling and lifting mascara because of the shape and design of the brush, and the packaging looks amazing.

Makeup Academy Lipsticks MUA swatches and review

Hello beauty lovers I hope you are all doing well, I thought I would share with you my most recent purchase from the Makeup Academy website. Just after Christmas I went on the website just to have a look, then I notice that they were having a sale, so I said to myself that I would try a few things because I hear so many good things about this brand, and that a lot of the lipsticks are dupes for MAC, but I ended up going a bit over the top and spending £40, the good thing about this was that i received free delivery so I cant complain there lol.

The Cosmetic Company Store (CCO)...Cheshire Oaks mac limited edition with swatches and review

PictureHello beauty lovers I hope you are all doing well, today was such an exciting day as I have been wanting to go to a designer outlet for years, however I never really had the time to drive so far just for makeup. But today I decided to stop being lazy and drive nearly two hours to Cheshire oaks outlet village. When I arrived there the first shop that I went into was The cosmetic Company outlet, yes out of all the shops I heading straight for the makeup.

When I arrived in the shop I very disappointed about the MAC section, I think my exceptions were too high as I was expecting the shop to be roughly the same size as MAC and also filled with MAC products, however the shop wasn't very big and there was only one stand with MAC products on. However I didn't mind I just kept thinking to myself limited edition collection items at a cheaper price, but I was wrong the only limited edition items that they had that caught my eye was, the Sharon Osbourne mineralize skinfinsh in Refresh and the Brooke Shield lipstick in excite. These two products I was very happy to find, however I was hoping on getting my hands on some alluring aquatics or liberty of London, which I doubt I will now for a good price as these collections are quiet expensive and rare to find. The majority of MAC limited edition item that they had were, Archies girls nail polishes, Nicki viva glam lipstick, limited eye shadows (but with the normal MAC packaging) and Kelly Osborne lipstick in Dodgy Girl which i already own.

The Popular Kylie Jenner Lipstick - Velvet Teddy & Soar!


Hello beauty lovers I hope you are all doing well, as you can see from the title today's blogs is about the popular MAC lipstick in the shade velvet teddy. Okay so I am literally obsessed with the Kardashians/Jenners, so when I saw a picture of kylie Jenner wearing a nude lipstick I fell in love with the colour instantly, and tried so hard to find out the colour, then I was told by a mate of mine that the lipstick was in fact velvet teddy from MAC, so I immediately went onto the websites to order it and it was sold out (I was so gutted), I kept checking back on the website for months, then last week I realised on the MAC website that it had an option to notify when back in stock, I felt so dumb lol but now I have finally got my hands on it, and I can honestly say I am in love it with it. The shade is a gorgeous nude with a hint of brown and the best thing is that it is a matte finish.

My First Gerard Cosmetics Order swatches and reviews

PictureHello all you beauty lovers I hope you are all doing well, today's blog is about my first Gerard Cosmetics order and whether I thought it was worth the hype, if you didn't already know my favorite makeup product is lip products, I am literally obsessed with lipsticks and have enough to last me a lifetime (but for some reason i keep buying more lol). however a few weeks ago i was scrolling down Depop (online app which is like eBay) and i saw that someone had listed a coupon code for Gerard cosmetics. I have always wanted to try their lip products after hearing some many youtubers rave on about how amazing their products are such as shaaanxo and Jacklyn hill, so i decided to make the plunge and order from them. The coupon code that i was given was "thankyou" which was 50% off all item in your cart, after adding two lipstick to my cart i decided that was enough as i didn't want to have to pay a custom charge as Gerard cosmetics in based within the US. And then to my surprise when i whet to pay for my lipsticks i also received free shipping and handling as it was new years (yay). I couldn't believe it my order came to $19 dollars including shipping which converted to roughly 12.88. so lipstick obsessed me order two more lipsticks.

Makeup Academy (MUA) Blushers swatches and reviews

Hello beauty lovers I hope that you are all doing well, today's blog post is going to be about a recent purchase that I made on the MUA website. I order all 6 of the MUA blushes, as both blushers and lipsticks are my favorite products, and the prices of the MUA ones are so cheap I decided to get the whole range, to see what I thought about them and to see if they were worth the £1 lol.

Lip monthly subscription - ofra, nyx, hikarai and city colour

Hello beauty lovers today's blog post is about a subscription box which I have been receiving now for 2 months. The subscription service is called lip monthly, the company is based in the USA but they do ship internationally so it's all good. Every month you will receive a unique box straight to your door, lip monthly discover and pick out the best lip products including lip glosses, lipstick, lip balm, lip stains and much more other lip products.

In the box... Well technically it's a cute little makeup bag with a themed design on it, you will receive a variety of products such as 2-3 full sized products, 1-2 sample products and a monthly mix up which is normally a non lip related product if that makes sense lol. When you receive your lip products, it also comes with a cute little card which will have information about the month on one side, and a list of products and the prices on the other side which i find so handy.

Lip monthly currently have three plans to choose from which are the monthly plan (which I am using as I wasn't sure whether I would like the products but I do aha)! This one is $10/month which you will earn 10 shop points on lip monthly's website, 4 month plan which is normally $40 but they currently have a deal on (maybe because it Christmas) so it is only $32.99, and by using the coupon code "HOLIDAY299" you can get your first bag for only $2.99 with 100 free shop points (bargain or what). The last plan is annually and its normal price is originally $120 however it is currently $100, and you can get the first two months free and 200 free shop points,if you use the coupon code "HOLIDAY12". For all you girlies outside of the usa international shipping is an additional $5. And if you are in the uk like me the pricing is roughly £9.60 for the bag including shipping plus an extra £1.28 (which I believe might be for conversion charged but don't quote me on that). I do honestly think that this is a great price for what you receive, especially because most of the lip products are from American brands which are hard to find in this country. So I best stop talking and get into showing you what I have received so far from lip monthly.

Makeup Academy (MUA) Single Eyeshaows swatches and reviews

Hello beauty lovers, I hope that you are all doing well, today's blog is going to be the about the Makeup Academy (MUA) single eye shadows. Just after new year I was having a browse on the MUA websites as I have been hearing a lot of people talking about this makeup brand and I have heard both negative and positives things about this brand so I decided to order a few products to see what I thought about them. I don't normally buy single eye shadows as I feel that they are hard to store and take up too much room in my makeup storage however when I went on the the MUA website they had a sale on and I some how ended up ordering 40 items all in all, which surprisingly only came to £30 with free delivery, and only took 5 days to come.

I ordered a variety of matte and shimmery shadows and swatched them, I could not believe the quality of these eye shadows for the prices, they are so smooth and glide on like butter. The shimmery ones are more pigmented than they matte, however the matte blue and black are really pigmented. Some of the shimmery shadows give off the foil look which i looove. They have a great colour selection and the products on the website look true to colour.
