Been awhile since I’ve done a nice round-up of monthly beauty mag freebies but one caught my eye the other day that I couldn’t resist posting (the offer is that good). Now the Clinique X Glamour mag freebies seem to come around roughly once a year (I’ve blogged about it last year as well), I picked up a chubby stick and my favourite moisturiser (convenient travel size!) last time and really loved them, there some great freebies this year as well including:
Very excited about this post and aren’t we all lucky to be living in such exciting times (okay, maybe I take makeup too seriously), just think about it, in just the past year the number of decent budget cosmetics brands have doubled! At least, it sure seems that way to me because I only knew of E.L.F. and MUA before (don’t they love their acronyms?) and then again, maybe E.L.F. doesn’t count because it’s only available onine. Then just a few months ago Makeup Revolution launched to much hype and fanfare, now it’s been barely that much longer and we have I ♡ Makeup!
Above are two of my favourite palettes from the brand, can you tell already that everything’s going to be kitchsy? Not that that’s a bad thing. Almost every other makeup palette that launches these days has that sleek black plastic casing, which is meant to look professional but obviously we know it’s just economical (and I definitely won’t complain when there’s amazing price points to be had as well!
Right, I hate to be an enabler so here’s a heads-up before you read this post: don’t let a sale or offer sucker you into buying anything you didn’t want to buy in the first place! So, if you’re the type to easily get tempted by sales/offers, maybe first read my post on How to Shop Sales Smart and write up your own wishlist before you start browsing the sales 😉 Right, now that that’s out of the way, I’m here to flag up an amazing sale offer on Kiko Milano’s online store, with 20% discount codes until May 11th!
There’re 3 voucher codes available that will give you 20% off either make-up, skincare or accessories (by accessories they don’t mean jewellery, they mean things like make-up brushes, brush cleansers, brush holders, etc.etc.). That’s pretty amazing because that means, if you shop smart, you’ll basically get 20% off your entire purchase!
The last time Kiko did a deal like this was back in February for a Valentine’s Day offer and I just missed it >_< since then I’ve been sort of holding off on all kinds of Kiko purchases just waiting for the discount to roll around again. Now it has, hurrah!
Whew, blogging this at 1.30am, just finished with work for today and as the show I’m currently working on opens soon there’s definitely been a huge flurry of late nights! Plus, I’ve a ton of other work to do as well, ah it’s never good at crunch-time but all will be worth it come Opening Night! Anyway, today I’m here to tell you about the most amazing giveaway for new budget beauty brand Makeup Revolution!
Just from the pictures you can see that product is a dupe for the Naked palettes, eh? It does look good though and reviews are showing some very positive things, I’m absolutely so, so excited for this!! What I’ve read reminds me of MUA so far so similar price points and I just love that the range of stuff we have for budget beauty keeps expanding more and more every day. Each of those palettes are just £4, like an MUA palette, amazing!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely Valentine’s Day 🙂
I’ve got an amazing little bargain for you that’ll brighten up your weekend, teehee.
I’m sure you’ve heard of the brand E.L.F. (or Eyes Lips Face), especially if you’ve been reading this blog any amount of time as I’ve mentioned their sales, deals, hauls, reviews and even a ‘miss-list’ before!
Anyway, E.L.F. is basically an amazing budget brand, they’re full of ‘hits’ and ‘misses’ but for the price range it really delivers surprising quality sometimes! Personally, I always do a bit of research into a product before I buy it because I don’t want to end up with a bag of terrible products but there’s been stuff I’ve got that are so cheap that I’ve really just thrown them into the bag (like a great powder I picked up that was less than £1 in a sale! Hmm, need to do a review on that…).
Oh yes, best thing about this promo code is that it is applicable to even sale items, which is lovely 🙂
