So I was a bit naughty and splurged a little on one of my favourite websites.. fragrance direct! If you haven’t heard of Fragrance Direct before it is essentially a website where you can buy drugstore and high end cosmetics, fragrances and hair care products for amazing prices. I have only ever ordered from this website once before but I was very pleased with their service and the quality of the products and you can get some seriously AMAZING deals there! Here is a link to the website if anyone is interested: http://www.fragrancedirect.co.uk/
Ok so maybe I went a bit over the top on the photo editing! It was the first time I have edited my photos so I don’t quite know what I’m doing just yet- Don’t worry I haven’t edited the rest of the photos!
I firstly bought 4 of the NYC mono eyeshadows which I had seen good reviews about so I would have bought them for full price (only £1.79!) but these were on sale for 50p! 50p!!! So I pretty much got 4 for the price of one (almost!) Anyway the shades I got were: top left- Basic Instinct, top right-Bazaar, bottom left- A-lister, bottom right-Luxury Reborn. I love these (I first tried them this morning) and although I haven’t used them lots yet I am really looking forward to using them more especially the darker ones because they are so pigmented!
Next I got this gorgeous coloured L’Oreal eyeshadow in the shade Silver Brown (I don’t know why as its not exactly silver!) I have never tried anything from L’Oreal so I didn’t know what to expect. I was let down by the packaging as it looked really luxurious on the website but in real life it is very plasticy and tacky! It comes with a tiny brush which I will probably never use but its a nice touch, and the actual eyeshadow is amazing! Again I have only tried this once so haven’t got an accurate opinion of it yet but so far I love the shade and it seems really pigmented :) I think this was £1.99
I got two of these Go big! eyeshadow pens which are from a German brand called ‘Manhattan’. I got the shades ‘Pearl’ (top one) which is a shimmery white colour and ‘sandal wood’ which is a copper sort of shade. I haven’t tried sandal wood yet but I have high hopes for it as it looks so pretty but I have tried Pearl in my waterline and I really disliked it because it clung to my lashes and looked really odd however they aren’t meant to be eyeliners so I can hardly judge them just yet! I think it would look lovely all over the lid with a dark colour in the crease so I will give that a go next time. I have never really tried eyeshadow pens before but I love cream eyeshadows like the Maybelline colour tattoos so I am hoping that these will open up a whole new love for eyeshadow pens! These were also £1.99 each.
Swatches: (Left to Right) L’Oreal silver brown eyeshadow, Manhattan Sandal Wood pen, Manhattan Pearl Pen
Another brand I have never tried is Jemma Kidd as I always associate it with expensive products however this brand often features on Fragrance Direct and so I thought I would try out the Front Cover Touch Up Concealer (I got the shade fair). This is one which you twist to make the product come out which I have never tried before and am not yet sure whether I like but it seems like a good medium/light coverage concealer for under the eyes. This was £2.99 (I think!)
The last product I bought was the Sally Hansen nail growth miracle serum which has had a mixed bag of good and bad reviews. I wasn’t sure whether to get this or not because I don’t know if it would work but my nails are absolutely terrible and I really want them to look nice so I am hoping that this will help them to grow. Only time will tell I suppose!
Anyway that is everything which came in my little parcel from fragrance direct! They were delivered in good, undamaged packaging within a week (I ordered it on Friday and it came the next Thusday) and I am very happy with all the products especially the prices of them!
I definitely think that you should check out fragrance direct if you haven’t already!
I hope you are all having a good weekend :)
Lots of Love Izzy xxx
