Amazon Beauty Bargains

Hello lovelies! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend? It was my Sister's 24th  Birthday on Friday, so a group of us went out for a delicious meal at Nando's and then off to the Cinema to see Now You See Me! It was a brilliant film and I had a lovely weekend spending time with my Sister, Brother in Law and their friends.

I've been a little bit addicted to Amazon recently, moment of silence for my poor bank account, it's starting to get a little bit out of hand now so I might have to give myself a spending ban for awhile! :( I've managed to come across quite a few bargains recently, so I thought I'd share them with you lovely lot so you can save some pennies and treat yourself to a little something!


1. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation- The first item I came across was Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, I own the Serum which I think is fantastic, it smells divine and 52 Vanilla is the most fantastic match to my skin tone! I've been wanting to try the foundation for awhile now as I heard it has better coverage than the serum, even though I like the more natural look, the Serum's coverage is a little bit too light for my liking. The foundation is currently on sale for £6.66 which is usually £9.99 so that's a saving of 33%!

2. Dainty Doll Foundation- The second item is also a foundation, this one is from the brand Dainty Doll. I'm not too sure if it's been discontinued or not, this brand has been slowly disappearing from the stores for months now, and Poundland and other places such as Fragrancedirect have been selling DD products at rock bottom prices! This brand was created for those with fairer skin, I've heard a lot of good things about this foundation, especially if your complexion is fair to medium so hopefully this post will appeal to you. The dark shade is on offer for £6.85, that's a huge 69% off the retail price!

3. Real Techniques- Starter Kit- I'm new to the Real Techniques brushes, I purchased the core collection kit a few months ago and I instantly fell in love. Since then I've been building up my survey balance to buy some more brushes. The starter kit is next on my list as I love experimenting with eyeshadows, especially during photoshoots, and I can't wait to use professional brushes to improve my make up skills. For £16.62 it's not a huge discount but considering the brushes are usually £20+ it's still saving you a few pounds!

4. Essie Watermelon Nail Varnish- My final beauty bargain I found was a selection of Essie nail varnishes for anything between £3.99 to £5.95. I've never tried many Essie nail varnishes, it's quite an expensive brand for nail varnish and I can't quiet justify spending £7.99 on a small pot! The colour I chose to share with you is Watermelon which is such a pretty summer colour! I'll also link you to the Amazon page with lots of other Essie nail varnishes which are currently on offer, so if Watermelon doesn't take your fancy then hopefully one of the other colours do. Watermelon is on sale for £5.95 and comes with free delivery!

I hope you enjoyed this post and take advantage of the beauty offers! What do you guys think of Essie nail varnishes?

    1. I was really hesitant to try a cheaper foundation as I usually wear my Estee Lauder double wear foundation but Bourjois healthy mix range is fantastic! x

    1. The core collection kit is brilliant, I wasn't expecting the brushes to have such an impact on my make up routine but you can definitely notice the difference between cheap and professional brushes! x

    1. I was surprised at how well it matched my skin, normally foundations are either too yellow or too pink! x
