I’m a bit obsessed with bargains at the moment. I recently made a trip to Bicester Village shopping outlet and picked up quite a few bits and bobs for some pretty bargainous prices that I thought I would share with you.
In the past I have said I am a bit of a MAC newbie, and whilst I’m still not exactly a MAC-addict, I have managed to build up a bit of a collection over the last year. My favorite bits of the MAC repertoire has to be the eye shadows, I love the range of colours so surprise surprise, at the CCO (Cosmetic Company Outlet) that was the main thing I went for. I picked up 7 shadows (all priced between £6.50 and £8), 6 in pots and 1 pro-pan of ‘Jest’ (not pictured).
Normally I mess around and um and ah over purchases, but this time I was on a bit of a deadline and had to make choices quickly so just picked up all the shades that I liked and went for it. So I left with…
– Femme Fi
– Unbasic White
– Et tu, bouquet?
– Expensive Pink
Of the above my current favorites are Henna (a gorgeous shimmering olive green) and Expensive Pink (a shimmering rose pink-gold from a LE collection I missed, but have since seen on blogs and really wanted to track down).
I also bought the Hocus Focus Colourful Face Kit from the Christmas 2009 collection. I think this was a great bargain as it only cost around £20 and includes…. two beauty powders (pretty baby and sunsparked pearl) and one sheertone shimmer blush (peachy keen). I really love the blush and sunsparked pearl as a highlight. I like the name of pretty baby, but I’m not quite sure how I’m going to use it – any tips please do share!
So there we have my bargain packed spending spree! What do you think of the colours I picked up? What’s the best bargain you have nabbed at a CCO or beauty sale??
**The Small Print**
All bought by myself in a big whirlwind of spending followed by a rush of buyers remorse…that quickly vanished when I looked at the pretty things.
