I’ll be the first to admit that I love a good bargain, there is nothing better than finding something you’ve wanted for ages in a deal – saving money for more beauty purchases. Fragrance Direct is a great one-stop shop for bargains and I know you’ll all enjoy browsing their site once you’ve read this post.
I came across FD a couple of years ago when Leichner foundation was a thing (heavy stage make-up? never again) and since then its been my go-to for regular beauty buys. Whether its a few bottles of St Moriz tan, foundations or perfume, its always where I head first because the discount is great and their list of brands is growing quickly with time. My most recent browse landed me with some of my favourite brands as well as a newbie that I’ve been desperate to try since forever – Bobbi Brown.
MAC ‘Hot Gossip’ Lipstick
Lip products are my ultimate weakness and no girl could turn down MAC lipsticks for £13, really!? Fragrance Direct is one of the only places to stock MAC discounted so full advantage was taken with a wide range to chose from. I opted for Hot Gossip as its one I’ve been after for a while, adding to my collection of gorgeous nude/pink shades that I wear daily. The cremesheen colours always seem to be well pigmented and long lasting which is perfect.
Bobbi Brown ‘Moisture Finish’ Foundation
This foundation is the first that I’ve had from Bobbi Brown after wanting to try the brand for a while and its lived up to expectations well. The foundation is very lightweight giving gorgeous colour and medium coverage without being heavy on my skin. I’ve found that it lasts well and I can easily go a day without re-applying foundation or powder. The Moisture Rich foundation retails at over £30 but only costs £27 through Fragrance Direct so there was no chance of passing up trying it out.
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara
False Lash Effect has been my favourite mascara since the tender age of 18. Its one of the only mascaras which can lengthen my lashes without leaving them clumpy and barely needing a top up through the day means it lasts much longer too. The brush for this is thicker with shorter bristles so less product gets trapped inside, and more glides on for fluttery eyes (yep, thats a thing).
Bourjois ‘Pink Pong’ Rouge Edition Velvet
Again, weakness in a lip product. The rouge editions have been appearing regularly on my instagram and blog feeds for a while, everyone seems to love them but I’m late to the party! I picked up the Pink Pong shade which is very vibrant pink and completely gorgeous – imagine it with an all black outfit and subtle eye look.. yep. I’m yet to try this over a longer period of time than a five minute try on, but I’ll be sure to review it as soon as possible. So far its looking amazing and you can’t really go wrong for £2.99, can you?
MAC ‘NW28’ Concealer
MAC foundations and powders have graced my make-up bag for as long as I can remember but a concealer has never made its way into my life until now. I was fairly eager to try the coverage out. I’ve found it to be amazing, hiding any signs of blemish on my skin and allowing me to feel confident and under-eye-bag-free. This costs £12 through Fragrance Direct and its worth purchasing because its amazing!
Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer
I’m a huge lover of Rimmel and this concealer has been my main love for a long time due to its miracle working under eye coverage without looking cakey. Its in a small compact so fits inside a handbag easily and for a high street, low priced brand its well worth the money.
So thats everything that I got from Fragrance Direct. I would highly recommend having a look at their website for beauty discount that will make your bank accounts cry! I’ve got my eye on a few more bits that I’m going to be picking up on payday!
