Steal of the Week

Let's talk Blog sales! 

Now if you are normal and by that I mean a 'non-blogger' you probably won't of even seen a blog sale/won't have a clue what I'm talking about. But if you are a Beauty Blogger you mostly likely know and have probably seen many a item with SOLD next to it, thinking you would of bought it if only you had got there first or had even known about it. 

You see that is the thing with beauty blog sales - there are lots of them always going on, selling an amazing range of new or slightly used makeup but it's just being there when one pops up....and lucky for moi last week I was sat at my laptop reading through a few blogs when Mercedez over at Reigning Beauties held a blog sale!

So lucky for me I picked up the CID i-bronze in Rio for an amazing £5 inc p&p were as it normally retails for £22!
Arghh swooshed my finger across it before taking the photo!

Now it may vey well be down to the price that I got it for but I am already a mitten kitten... even though it is WAY to dark for my non-tanned skin. 
Which means so far I have only looked at it lovingly and swatched it on the back of my hand wishing it would hurry up and be summer already. I'm just amazed at the quality. 

I know this will be perfect for my fake tanned (natural looking of course) skin come June with a nice big fluffy brush. 

My own amazing steal of the week 
aside, feel free to tell me your best EVER blog sale buy!

These look so gorgeous, I wish I'd bought one when they were available from ASOS for £14.99 (I think they've since sold out). Surprisingly...I don't think I've bought from a blog sale yet!

this is so pretty!! I know CID cosmetics is not so cheap as a brand, so you definitely did a great deal! =)

Kelllly said...

Wow - steal! :p
My best blog sale buy was the clarins barocco face compact for £13, but tbh I would have paid more for it as I was lusting since it first came out, but never bought it coz I thought I would just look at it but never use it, but I have used it and it's gorgeous so I'm so happy :) rant over x

I've never brought anything from a blog sale because I never have any money in the bank when they pop up! I always look at them dreaming over what I could buy! x

DesignerSpray said...

I always miss out on blog sales, always late to the party me. But I did use my No 7 voucher today and got some eyeliner for a couple of quid... it's not a blog sale bargain but it's still good :)
