So I have tried to avoid the January sales and bar a few dresses from Matalan for work and a too good to refuse 60 pound to 10 pound grecian style dress in river island i've been really good... that is until this week but i think you may agree these bargains were too good to refuse...(maybe ;))
Right so first all I went to Boots to see if there was anything worth having in the 70% off reductions to be honest there wasn't and I wasn't willing to have a scrap with a few grannies over the last remaining Santuary gift sets but on my way out I was naughty... very very naughty.
I noticed Smashbox had some of the Christmas Gift sets reduced. I've been eyeing up the eyeliner for some times which I believe retails at around £14.00 so I believe the above set was a bit of bargain. I know a lot of bloggers rave about this eyeliner so i'm very keen to try it.
So long stroy short the below set cost me a bargainous £17.50!!!! It also contains a full sized mascara which usually costs £18.00 which is more than the actual set cost - so really they have paid me 50p to have this gorgeous eyeshadow palette and mascara. (Funny Logic?)
I'm in love with this palette and feel it's beautiful rosey gold offerings may deter or at best delay my grubby little mits from the Naked 3 palette!!
The smashbox brushes usually retail at around £20 a brush so i was literally in shock to see this 5 piece signature brush set for just £24.50!!
I can't find any reference to anywhere online for why this was in the sale as it's still selling for 48 quid on the smashbox website... so once again I might have made a little spending oops!
I used these brushes this morning and have to say was very impressed - particularly love the chrome finishing and matching carrying bag :)
This was a slightly less impulsive purchase as I've wanted to try some illamasqua make up for ages... I don't want to go to much into these as may do a full review later if anyones interested?
But basically i got the Liquid Light Foundation in LF135 which is currently in the sale for £10 and the Liquid Blush is Dixie for £7.50!
Their sale is huge and epic so I feel i was pretty restrained. Here are some pics
Sorry for this lengthy post!! Has anyone else picked up any beauty bargains in the sales? xxxx
