High End Discount Beauty Haul


You know when you're just feeling down and start window shopping online to cheer yourself up, but it turns into splurge after splurge? Yeah I've done that quite a few times this month. Ain't nothing wrong with putting yourself first sometimes! Aside from my MAC lipsticks and the occasional Nars pick, I've never really been one for high-end make-up. I tend to stick to drugstore buys, mainly for convenience, but I decided to test a few new things out! 

Viktor & Rolf, Flowerbomb 50ml £61.45 | Nails Inc, Westminster Bridge matte top coat £2.95

Flowerbomb is my absolute favourite perfume. It's such a perfect scent for me, fruity but musky and girly but not at the same time, plus, look how cute the packaging is! This was the catalyst for my splurge on allbeauty.com. I knew I needed a new bottle and my mum actually suggested the site because it sells everything at discount, so obviously I had to check it out. This bottle size (RRP £69) might not seem like the greatest saving, but every little helps right? And the savings on each product vary so much it's definitely worth a look.
I also got a Nails Inc matte top coat which I used in my recent Nail Update, which for less than a fifth of the price (RRP £15) was my favourite bargain. It works amazingly and is so much easier than buying all your favourite nail colours in a matte formulation!

Estee Lauder, Double Wear All-Day Glow BB £26.95 | YSL, Touche Eclat £22.50

As I mentioned, I've not tried many high-end products so these are both new to me. I'm not a big fan of full coverage foundations, especially for daily wear, and since the Estee Lauder double wear range is so popular I thought I'd try the BB Glow. I got this in Intensity 2.0 and I really love the consistency. 
The Touche Eclat is a product I've thought about getting for so long now! I'm always trying new concealers for under my eyes and I love a glowy make-up look so it seemed perfect for me. It's not the highest coverage (and doesn't claim to be) but it is a new glowy concealer and goes super well with the BB for a dewy everyday look!

Elizabeth Arden, 05 Ginger £6.99 | Estee Lauder, Rose Tea £5.99 | YSL, Satin/Shine Lip Duo £4.99

My favourite buys, however, are these 3 babies! I'm 100% a lipstick girl and am always looking for new shades to add to my collection. I picked these up on saveonmakeup.co.uk and they were such good bargains! The Elizabeth Arden and Estee Lauder ones are RRP £21 and the YSL £24.99! So I was obviously very happy with what I paid. The EA shade is a really nice orange/slightly berry toned nude while the EL shade is more pinky, very similar to MAC Whirl. The YSL duo consists of a satin lip colour in a dark berry shade and a nude gloss to go with. They're all super nice consistency and long-lasting formulas, I'd definitely recommend checking out the site, the stock is constantly rotating.
