Hi my lovelies,
I have been on a bit of a spending spree lately. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ll know this already! I placed a couple of orders from EyesLipsFace (E.L.F.) UK, and another from Rimmel London. E.L.F. is a drugstore cosmetic company based in the US, which up until recently had a UK distributor, selling all of their products from their warehouse in Wales. I realised this only when I sat down to place my first order, and was faced with this:
This meant that all the products I had on my wishlist, their most popular products, were already sold out. However, I continued to browse the site, and quickly filled up my cart with heavily discounted products. I had to spend £30 to qualify for free delivery – who likes to pay for shipping? So after patiently waiting for ten days, my order finally arrived.
I was really impressed with the quality of products, that I decided to place a second order. Unfortunately, more of the products had sold out, so there wasn’t a lot of variety left. I still managed to select £30 worth of products, to qualify for the free delivery. My package arrived sooner than expected.
The background is a bag that came with the first order. I went a bit overboard but am looking forward to trying it all out and reviewing it for you. There are still a few items remaining on the E.L.F. UK website, so I suggest you take a look if anything catches your eye – everything is now reduced to £1 or less!
My second haul wasn’t so large. I wanted to try the Rimmel Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liners. Superdrug has a ‘3 for 2’ offer across all cosmetics, with a free makeup bag with purchase. I thought I’d take advantage of this, as the Lip Liners are usually £3.99 each. There are six shades in the collection – I find it difficult to select shades online, as I don’t think the images on the website are always correct representations of the actual colour. I liked the look of all six of them, and certainly wasn’t disappointed when they arrived:
Boots also has the same ‘3 for 2’ offer on Rimmel cosmetics, if you can’t find the shades you are looking for at Superdrug.
Swatches and reviews will be coming soon, but I didn’t want to delay putting this post up, so you could take advantage of some of these offers. Did you get anything from the E.L.F. UK closing down sale, or from the Superdrug ‘3 for 2’ offer with the makeup bag? Feel free to link your posts in the comments section so we can all check them out.
