Beauty Freebie – Free Rimmel Mascara!

Hello My Lovelies!

I haven’t posted in 2 days in a row, I don’t think this has ever happened before, apologies =( I took Monday off as I thought it was a Bank Holiday and I kept posts up over Easter Weekend anyway and then yesterday I just had the most hectic and busy day (starting with a horrendous meeting at 8.30am) plus I’m very ill. Which is so unfortunate because I’m just as busy today! Eep >_< But let’s look on the bright side of life, I had a fantabulous Easter weekend away with my church and am raring to plough on now I’m back (if only my body would listen and stop being ill) and most importantly, free mascara! Free mascara from Rimmel! Lol.

The deal comes courtesy of the Fabulous Beauty Awards 2014 hosted by The Sun. It sure seems like every paper/magazine has their own awards, don’t they? I liked the ones where you get to nominate brands of your own or choose ‘no opinion’ if you don’t agree with any of the nominations in the categories or if you don’t really use a particular product (eg. I never use self-tan), unfortunately Fabulous Beauty Awards don’t allow that but they are having an amazing deal on – vote and you stand a chance to win a free Rimmel London Scandeleyes Rockin’ Curves Masacara!

Top 5 Budget Red Lipsticks under £5

Hi there my pretties!

So, seeing as Valentine’s is today, the internet is practically abuzz with all sorts of V-Day makeup look tutorials! Did you know, that the Chinese have their own Valentine’s Day based on the Lunar Calendar? And tomorrow, for the first time in a long, loooong time, the Chinese and English Valentine’s coincide on the same day! Right, trivia for the day done with… time to get to the topic of the day which is budget red lipstick!!

Back to Valentine’s looks, most of these seem to contain that quintessential red lip. Depending on how you pair it with the rest of your look and whether it’s a warm or cool red lip, it can be sexy, dangerous, classy, inviting… you name it. Honestly you can never have too many red lipsticks and I for one don’t think I’ve found my ultimate, perfect one yet but I have found loads of amazing budget ones in my parsimonious quest for good makeup.

This post is for those of you who want to rock that glam, V-day look without breaking the bank 😉

And even if V-Day is not for you or it’s long past by the time you read this, a red lip that you like should always be an essential part of your makeup bag!

1) MUA Matte Lipstick in Scarlet Siren

You’ve probably read my million and one posts that I’ve already done about the amazing MUA Matte Lipsticks and how they’ve come to my rescue in a makeup emergency one time in Germany but I can’t resist mentioning them once again.

Amazing Boots Deals On Now – Real Techniques 3 for 2!!!

Hi All!

Those of you who’ve been following my blog for awhile will know how long I’ve been eyeing Real Techniques brushes but I’ve been holding out on buying them (even during Boots Points Events!! Which says a lot…) because I know that Real Techniques would go on a 3 for 2 offer at some point and it finally has!!!

Additional bonus: there’s the Triple Points Bonus Event this weekend too!! It’s 12 points per £1 spent instead of 4 points above a minimum spend of £30, which isn’t too hard to reach with makeup…

If you’ve nothing else to do this Sunday, I highly suggest you hike it down to Boots asap, sign up for an Advantage Card (if you don’t already have one) and buy whatever stuff you want in lots of 3 (lol).

There’s quite a lot of things on a 3 for 2 offer, obviously the cheapest item is free so be savvy in your shopping picks. If you get a couple of the Real Techniques brush sets which cost about £20 each you might as well treat yourself to something else that’s around the same price, I’ve picked up the No. Lift and Illuminate Serum because I’ve heard rave reviews about it on Amodelrecommends.

A lot of the makeup is on 3 for 2 as well, including Revlon, Rimmel, L’Oreal, Maybelline… the list goes on!

In plain maths, with the triple points event (which gives you a 12% ‘discount) and which a 3 for 2 offer (which, at its best, will give you a ‘discount’ of 33%) you get a 45% ‘discount’!!

When I put it like that, you realise how good the deal is isn’t you 😉

So get shopping, now’s the time to really stock up!

It’s best if you already had a wishlist you’ve been working on and putting together, I always have one so when a sale or a good deal rolls round I know just what I want to get and I don’t end up being tempted by lots of other products I know I don’t really need/want. 😉

That’s worked so well that I’ve basically ticked off most of my stuff on my current wishlist (ie. I’ve also bought nothing else besides the stuff I had listed), time to work on another!

And even if you’re 100% there’s nothing you want for yourself (really?!) you can definitely pick up a good deal for someone as a Christmas present! There’s also the Boots Star Gift of course.

HAPPY SHOPPING!

Fashion Sales for the Week!

Hey my Budget-Babes!

If you’re not already aware, there’s actually quite a few good sales going on this week! Here’s a round-up of what I feel are some of the top picks this week =)

DP Fashion WeekRight, first up is DP Fashion Week!

Basically, Dorothy Perkins have an amazing 25% off everything offer both online and instore! I think this is amazingly generous because usually stores do a ‘up to xx%’ thing where you find most things are only off a puny 5% or something when they lured you in with 50%… but no, this is a code or voucher that gives you 25% whatever item/s!

It’s not available to be used in conjunction with other promotions or offers which I think is fair enough =)
