Why I love Blog Sales...

Hey there,

I don't know about you but I love a good bargain and I especially love a beauty bargain, which is why I love looking at people's blog sales. You can often find something you've been eyeing up for a while but didn't want to splash the cash, sometimes you can even find something that was from a limited edition collection that you missed out on. 

I recently hit up two lovely bloggers' blogsale and here is what I bought.


So from one blogsale I picked up the MAC Alluring Aquatic Limited Edition Extra Dimension Blush in Sea Me Hear Me. The Alluring Aquatic collection when it came out was not one that I jumped at to buy something until it was too late and there was nothing available to buy anymore. So when I saw this in a blog sale I knew I wanted it. I mean look at the packaging, it's beautiful.

Then from another blog sale I picked up the other three things. I picked up the Naked 2 palette,  It didn't come with the brush but I'm not going to lie I'm fine with that because I never use the brushes that come with palettes. I've had my eye on the Naked 2 since I had my make up done at an Urban Decay stand. Now it's mine.

The other two things that I picked up were also eye related. I bought a single pot of MAC Tempted. I already have this in one of my 15 palettes however this one was rather cheap (for MAC) and it is for travel. You see I recently bought the Urban Decay Basics Palette for when I go away but the one thing that bugged me was the lack of a little shimmer. So that is what Tempted is going to be, my little bit of shimmer.

Finally I bought something which has been getting rave reviews and many mentions from the big bloggers and vloggers right now and that is a By Terry Ombre Black star Eyeshadow. The one I got was Misty Rock. I love the idea of these as an easy wash of colour all over the lid but the thing I couldn't get past was the price as full price these retail at £28. This one was a lot less and there seems to be a lot left.

I was so happy to find this second blog sale because the prices of all the products were amazing value. I actually got all three things for £36, which is about the same price as just the Naked 2 palette if bought from the shops, I was so happy.

What was the best thing/things you have got from a blog sale? Do you like them or loathe them?

Lots of Love,
Clare
