Recently I've got back in to bargain hunting, well actually you will always find me at the clearance sections of Boots and TK Maxx, but more so than normal. You see I have a holiday coming up (a month today!) and I seemed to have also developed a bit of an ASOS addiction! So I've been trying my best not to over spend on makeup, because I definitely have enough of it!
Below are just a few things I've found on the high street over the last month or so and think are absolute steals and very much worth picking up if they catch your eye. Hope you like this post... bargain posts are always my favourite to write!
Maybelline Minty Fresh Baby Lips
Superdrug or Tesco here - £2.90
Okay, so this was a repurchase, so not really a discovery, but as I love this lip balm so much I decided to include it! Why is it so good? I hear you ask, well compared to all the other Baby Lips I've tried it actually conditions the lips and keep them soft. I also really like the mint scent and how smoothly it applies. Ignore all the tinted ones if you have yet to try them (the Barry M ones are much nicer) and go for this one!
Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Plumping Top Coat
Superdrug or ASOS here - £2.99
This is a new favourite top coat for me! I love the Gelly range already and loved the sound of a plumping top coat so virtually threw it in my basket with an ASOS order (one of many this month - eeep). The new top coat gives a lovely glossy finish to the nails but as the name suggests it also gives a thicker plumped up look to nail polish that looks quite gel like. So far I've only tried it over opaque nail polish but I can imagine this being great to finish nail art with. Also it makes the nails feel amazingly smooth.
BD Trade Secrets Brow Definer Pencil in Brunette
Tesco here - £2.99
The Barbara Daly range at Tesco has had a recent overhaul and I for one am loving the new products I've so far tried out. Along with their lipsticks I'm currently in love with all their pencil products, especially the Brow Definer Pencil. The pencil is great on medium to dark brows to add definition and is quite a hard pencil but with good colour payoff. Barbara Daly have definitely upped their game and are really worth checking out if you are shopping in Tesco!
Pretty Things Makeup Bag
Home Bargains - 79p
Yes, this really is only 79p?! Amazing, right? I absolutely love Home Bargains for... well general bargains. I often pop in and come out with so many beauty and home accessories, so it's well worth a look. But back to this amazing makeup bag that instantly reminded me of the style and finish of Ted Baker bags! Perfect for travel or to keep in your handbag, this really looks a lot more expensive than a meer 79p.
Beauty Compact Mirror
Beauty Compact Mirror
Home Bargains - 49p
With the same print I also picked up a lovely compact mirror for the bargain price of 49p! Again this is perfect for keeping in your bag for touch-ups. Really cute but very cheap! I also spotted small and large tote bags in the same print and finish of the makeup bag that were equally as lovely.
Clear Acrylic Makeup Holder
Poundworld - £1
Last but not least an amazing acrylic makeup organiser for only £1! This is pretty amazing for the price if you ask me. The organiser holds 6 lipsticks and 6 pencil products which is pretty impressive for the size of it and would be ideal on a dressing table with other makeup storage.
Hope you have found a few bargains!
