eBay is one of my favourite websites for grabbing a total bargain! I rarely dislike my cheap buys and believe eBay is the best place online if you are on a budget. So today I thought I'd round up my forever bargain beauty purchases that I've been loving over the past year.

Clear Acrylic Lipstick Holder
£1.97 - here
Before purchasing this little storage unit for my favourite lipsticks I was constantly rummaging around my storage drawers and not using my favourites half as much as I'd have liked. So I decided to purchase this neat and tidy looking tiered lipstick holder that holds an impressive 24 lipsticks! I often rotate the lipsticks that are in here and always make room for new lipsticks to ensure I use them! For under £2.00 this is amazing value for money!
4 Piece Eyeshadow Blending Makeup Brush Set
£1.66 - here
A great way to increase your makeup brush collection here with some good quality makeup brushes but at an amazing price. I decided to pick up this set as I wanted a few more blending brushes for smokey eye looks and thought for the price it was worth risking them being poor quality! However when they arrived I was amazed at how soft they were and how well made. I was then further impressed when they didn't shed and actually ditched a Sigma blending brush that I use for blending out concealer in favour of one of these. A great purchase that I use every time I apply makeup.
10 Pan Blusher Palette
£3.95 - here
This was a purchase when I was going though a blusher phase and decided I needed to try out some different shades but without the cost of individually buying them on the high street. I decided to risk it and pick up this bargain 10 pan palette as it had quite a few more natural pink/peach-y shades. The pigmentation of all the blushers is amazing and I love most of the shades.These are slightly powdery and have a bit of fall out but tapping off your brush solves that and once on the cheeks they blend perfectly. A superb palette if you want to build your blusher collection or try out some different shades.
Acrylic Nail Polish Stand
Clear stand £7.49 - here
Clear stand £7.49 - here
A slightly more expensive buy here but one I just adore! This amazing nail polish stand was a bit of a treat to myself for proudly displaying all my favourite glitter nail polishes, but since then I mix it up and sometimes keep all my new nail polishes on it to make sure I try them all out. The high quality stand holds a maximum of 30 polishes over 3 tiers and comes in a wide range of finishes - even a glass look acrylic! A great purchase if you are nail polish lover... I know I absolutely love mine!
Tony Moly Egg Pore Silky Smooth Balm Primer
£7.37 - here
When it comes to primers I'm fussy! I've long since realised primers can't really be worn day-to-day as they block the pores and don't let the skin breath, so when I do use a primer I want there to be a noticeable difference to my skin. In the past I have been so underwhelmed by primers that just feel greasy on the skin... however I then discovered one of my favourite Korean makeup brands, Tony Moly offered an interesting pore concealing primer. I will admit I purchased it mainly for the stunning golden egg packaging but was amazed with how well it concealed pores and smoothed out the skin. As you can see above this totally airbrushes the skin! This won't be a primer for everyone as it's quite a heavy silicone based one but if you are looking for a primer that really does work for special occasions then this really is worth a try.
Hope you've found a few bargains here!
