Make Up Bargains

I cannot resist a bargain. I love nothing more than trailing round a car boot sale with a burger van bacon sandwich and you will often find me perusing rails in a charity shop looking for hidden treasure (I haven't found it yet but I am still hopeful!). My other obsession is eBay and I could spend hours browsing the clothing and home categories for beautiful one-offs that never cost me more than £5. 

After turning 25 last November I decided it was time to learn about make up! I love eye make up and wear mascara and pretty eye liner on a daily basis but I have never worn foundation and I'm not entirely sure what to do with powder... 

So in my quest for affordable make up to play with I stumbled across the motherload at Poundland of all places! I have seen the cheap branded make up in there before but have only ever seen lime green nail varnish (why??) and cheap looking orange lipsticks. However this time I could easily have come away with a whole new make up collection although I stopped at 3 items :)

Rimmel Lasting Finish Blush and Highlighter in Winter Glow - £1

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Barracuda - £1 

CoverGirl TruShine Lipstick in Hot Pink Shine - £1

My dad also gave me a £5 No7 voucher and I spent ages looking through all the skin care and make up products on offer and in the end I choose a lipstick from the limited edition Vital Brights range. I was a little disappointed that the actual lipstick case wasn't patterned like the box but I love the nude shimmery colour so much that it makes up for it!

No7 Vital Brights Lipstick in Blossoming Pink - £10 £5 with voucher

Have you bought any new make up recentely? Have you bought any bargains from an unexpected place?
