Bargain Hunting in the City


With the rush up to Christmas I decided to go back to the shopping capital of Scotland: Glasgow! As if the hundreds I spent last week weren't enough. Today was all about the makeup though. TK Maxx is one of my favorite places to get branded makeup at a mere fraction of the price; 'lo and behold, Glasgow has two in  the central shopping district. I was in my element. Soem of the things I bought were:

  • Set of three Rimmel Apocolips £5.99!! (The day before I paid just under a fiver for a single one; daylight robbery!)
  • OPI nail polish £6.99 (RRP £11.99)
  • Ciate nail varnish £2.99 (RRP £9.00)
  • BareMinerals All Over Face Colour £5.99 (RRP £19.00)         
As you can probably tell I had a fantastic day collecting all my little treasures all over the city. My only sadness is that I have to wait until Christmas to play with any of it, but I shall PERSEVERE! Any more bargain hunt shall be posted here as I see them.

Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay.

When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
