eBay Bargains #52 - 99p Buys!

See comments

All items 99p with free p&p!

Moon Hair Clip HERE
A lovely simple hair clip here that you would expect to spot in Topshop or on the ASOS website. The clip comes in both gold and silver and in a moon or triangle shape.

Palm Leaf Phone Case HERE
I'm certainly over spending £10+ on a single phone case! These days I like to pick up a selection of 99p cases that are actually really good quality. I absolutely love the above phone case but the listing has 30+ more designs if you aren't into this one.

Delicate Fan Brush HERE
You can never underestimate the use of a fine fan brush, especially to use with powder highlighters. This will perfectly add highlight to under the brows, the cupid's bow and for precise application on the cheekbones.

Set of 6 Hair Ties HERE
I love these kind of hair ties and have so many of them all around the house because they are comfortable to wear and don't leave a kink in the hair! For only 99p I'm totally loving these mixed design ties and there are even more to the listing. I also found a listing with 14 more summery styles here.

Set of 6 Rings HERE
A lovely mix of midi rings here that are inexpensive and cheaper than you would find in Primark! I'm sure the quality won't be amazing for 99p but fab to add to existing rings and just for a bit of costume jewellery.

Set of 6 Mixed Bracelets HERE
Another jewellery find in a range of styles and colours in the listing. These are perfect for summer and can be worn all together or just a few. I love that a tassel one is included. 

Nail Polish Holder Ring HERE
How have I never seen one of these before now?! This is such an ingenious idea that would help me out a lot when painting my nails. From the look of it it fits all bottle sizes as well. 

Exfoliating Shower Gloves HERE
Finally I've found a pair of black exfoliating gloves that won't look grubby after a few uses! Exfoliating gloves are a must for me in the shower so I'm thrilled I can now buy black ones that will stay looking new for much longer. 

Layered Black Tassel Choker HERE
I'm currently loving the layered choker trend so I had to include this bargain find. It's pretty simple so it will go with most outfits and it's a way of trying out the trend before looking at more expensive options on the high street.

Now off to spend all of £4 on a few of these budget finds!

House of Fraser Beauty Haul

See comments

Last week I was excitingly asked if I wanted to pick out a few beauty products from the House of Fraser website to try out... and I of course said yes, who wouldn't?! 

Now I may have spent the entire night browsing the makeup department of HoF trying to decide what to pick whilst creating a fantasy wish list in my head just in case I ever win the lottery - a girl can dream. But I finally picked out three products that I was excited about and knew I could use through each season... forever being savvy! 


MAC Eye Shadow x 9 (Burgundy Times Nine) - £25.00 HERE
The first product I picked out was this a-mazing warm smokey palette that I just can't stop swooning over and swatching! Yes, it's dinky but you get 9 MAC shades to try out and they are all beyond pigmented and possibly the nicest I've ever blended with.... trust me this palette can create an amazing smokey eye! I of course went for this palette because it's just beautiful but also because I know I will use every shade and none will be neglected much like a lot of the palettes I own. I also know I will be able to create everyday looks with this, deep smokey looks and go totally matte some days or full on shimmer as there are a good mix of formulas in the palette. Favourite shades have to be Antiqued, Quarry and Star Violet. I've not been as excited about using an eyeshadow palette in a long time and keep thinking of the gorgeous autumnal looks I will be able to create with it in a few months! 

MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick - £15.50 HERE
Staying with MAC I carefully decided on a nude lipstick that would suit both my fair skin and also my skin when I fake tan and I amazingly did it with the stunning Velvet Teddy! I'd say Velvet Teddy is a very on-trend matte nude with a deep beige tone that will suit so many skin types. As this was my first matte lipstick (I think!) from MAC I was concerned that it would be too drying for me but in fact it's totally comfortable on the lips and has movement so your lips don't feel like are wearing a drying face mask and may crack at any time. Again I'm very much looking forward to wearing this all wear round and can see it becoming a staple nude for me. So so pleased with this product! 

Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray - £9.00 HERE
Lastly I decided to try out the Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray but in the travel size 30ml bottle. This made sense as I will be going on holiday later in the year so the size of it is ideal for then and in the mean time I get to use it day-to-day and test it out before deciding if it's worth spending £22 on the full size 118ml bottle. Urban Decay now do a range of different makeup setting sprays but thankfully the travel size is for oil-control something I need with my oily/combination skin. I've yet to try this out but I'm hoping this will make my foundation last longer especially on my T-zone and stop that 5pm oil shine. If this is a hit I will be taking it on holiday with me and include a review of it in my 'What's in my Holiday Makeup Bag' blog post nearer the time! 

Let me know what you think of my picks, especially the stunning MAC eyeshadow palette... I think I need another one now!

eBay Bargains #51 - Latest Makeup Finds

See comments

Concave Face Brush £2.16 HERE 
Okay, so I haven't a clue about this brush... but it looks pretty cool to me! Is it a dupe? I don't know, but I love the shape of the handle and how the bristles are cut. An exciting new find here!

Rainbow Highlighter £5.74 HERE 
Rainbow highlighter is the latest trend and with the original Etsy rainbow highlight taking pre-orders for 9-10 months time I think I'll stick with trying out this beauty first! It's also 1/3 of the price! I'm hoping this will give me the beauty of a unicorn! Available in 2 different shades.

 Soft Matte Lip Cream £1.42 HERE
With eBay awash with fakes including cheap NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams it's always good to find a dupe from an actual brand. I've tried QiBest lip products before and have liked them so I'm hoping these will be good. Available in 7 different shades.  

Set of 5 Pro Makeup Brushes £5.19 or £1.29 each HERE 
I love when I come across new affordable brush sets like this! This really does look like a lovely set with the bright rose gold metallic finish and indents where to hold the brush. I also like that there's the option to buy all the brushes individually, something I will be doing to check the quality before buying the set. That small blush brush will be mine!

 Makeup Brush Cup Holder £3.79 HERE
I already own quite a fancy Sigma brush holder and I love it. The cups can be used as two separate holders on your desk and then the holder can be used whole when travelling to keep all your brushes protected. But to be honest you really can spend as little or as much as you want and to me this looks a pretty lovely holder. The listing has so many different designs and colours to pick from as well!

 Holika Holika Jewel Eyeliner £3.06 HERE
Don't these eyeliners look amazing? I love creamy kohl liners and these 3 metallic jewel toned shades are calling to me. Under the eyes or along the waterline any one of these would look amazing for summer. I also really rate Holika Holika products!
Larger Bronze Fan Brush £1.20 HERE  
I love a good fan brush and this looks a good one. I love the deep bronze metallic ferrule and the size of this; perfect for subtle contour on the face and collar bone. Such a bargain price as well!

Silver Blush Brush £2.89 HERE 
Another unique brush find that I had to include. Again, I'm not sure if this is a dupe for a more high end brush but I'm intrigued all the same. This looks just the right size and shape for blusher and would be a unique brush to add to my collection. 

Jolie BeBe Lip Polish £3.36 HERE 
Lastly I thought I'd include a lovely looking lip scrub. I love using lip scrubs before applying matte lip products but they aren't an overly popular product and generally seem to come in awkward jars. So for this price this is a handy tube that can be directly applied to the lips or hygienically applied with your fingertip. Interested to try this one! 

As always I hope you've found a few bargains here!
