Top Amazon Beauty Bargains.

I always buy my eyelashes in bulk from Amazon for my makeup kit because the prices are so good! Recently Bob got Amazon Prime membership so I’m a lot more interested in purchasing through the site than ever. Last week while stocking up on lashes, glue and lash applicators, I decided to have a browse around the beauty section and was surprised to find that Amazon stock Tarte cosmetics. I’m unsure if everybody already knows that there are higher end brand cosmetics to be had on Amazon. But for the sake of this post, I’m assuming that you are as behind the door as I was about it.

Certain products like Kat Von D and Too faced are actually way more expensive to purchase through Amazon and you might as well just order from another online store. However, I had a dig around and compared prices to find a few beauty bargains to share with you.

 

Real Techniques-Eyes-Starter Set £11.00

I love Real Techniques brushes. The sets are always such good value for money at full price. They are so well made, they work really well and they last a decent amount of time. At £11.00 and eligible for Prime delivery this eye starter set which contains 5 full sized eye brushes and a carry case which folds into a brush stand is amazing value for money. Perfect for anybody that want’s to build up a brush collection without spending a fortune.

theBalm- Mary-Lou Manizer £15.00

I was so excited when I found this! The cult highlighter from theBalm ‘Mary-Lou Manizer’ is one that I have always meant to buy but never gotten around to actually getting! At £15 for a full sized product, this is definitely back on my radar! And in my basket, as we speak! Yes!!

theBalm  Pickup Liner- ‘Chemistry’ £4.74


Another theBalm bargain to be had! At £4.74 and eligible for Prime delivery I had to add this lip liner into the mix! There are 8 shades in the ‘Pickup’ liner range and I can find 7 on Amazon. The other shades do vary in price and none are as bargainous as this particular one. But they are still cheaper to purchase through Amazon overall. There are actually tonnes of theBalm bargains to be had if you scout around the site. So much so that I think I could have made this whole post on the brand alone!

Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette £44.99

Tarte-cosmetics-Amazonian-clay-matte-eyeshadow-palette
OK so now this is turning into more of a personal wish list kind of post!! Beauty blogging is dangerous!! As I mentioned I had noticed that Tarte cosmetics are available on Amazon. As the brand isn’t readily available in the UK this is very exciting! Of course, we have to pay a little extra for the privilege. But it seems that over here Amazon is a good place to go for this brand right now. Although the saving is only a few pounds vs buying directly from Tarte US. Not eligible for Prime delivery the cheapest delivery option for this palette is £5 so in total it’ll cost you £50. I want it!

Ardell Demi Wispies Natural multipack x4 pairs lashes £8.76

I thought I’d end this post (for the sake of my own bank balance) with the lashes that I always order from Amazon. I am never without the Ardell demi wispies in my professional kit as they are such a universally flattering eyelash! My brides love them. And they are my personal favourites to wear on a night out. I haven’t found a better price for these lashes. And they are eligible for Prime delivery so I had to add them in!

Hopefully, this post was helpful. I can’t believe the amount of beauty brands that are actually on offer on Amazon! So this has been an interesting post for me to put together. The links used are affiliate links which means I would receive a small percentage of any sales made through them at no extra cost to you. By all means feel free just to search the products if you prefer to.

Do let me know if you like this type of post. There are so many products available that I think I could do several!!

I Started Vlogging!!

.

So I’ve mentioned once or twice that I would love to try my hand at vlogging. I’ve had a YouTube channel for years which I have dipped in and out of and never really taken too seriously. I’ve mainly used it to post Primark Hauls that translate a bit better through a video rather than photographs.

The other day without any forward thinking I switched the camera on and started chatting away. I clearly had no intentions of beginning a vlog as I’m wearing a massive hoodie (hood up looking all A- from PLL!) and no makeup. At 33 I’m pretty much over caring what I look like without makeup.

 

So I vlogged a rainy day where it was just me and Finn at home and showed how blogging looks behind the scenes with a 2-year-old in tow! I really enjoyed it and I love the editing process.I’ve carried on filming and introduced Finn’s Dad into the mix tonight. After he came home from 4 days away working. Poor sod! I bet he wanted to turn round and go back!

So I’ll hopefully get into the swing of chatting to the camera.It’s a weird thing to do! I’m planning to film more day in the life videos and take the camera on makeup jobs with me. So that should make for some interesting footage (I hope!) Anyway normal blogging will resume on here. I thought I’d just pop a link to my channel here in case you fancy checking it out. If you do I’d be really chuffed and I’d love to know what you think?

Urban Decay Naked Heat- 7 Looks in 7 days 1

Urban Decay Naked Heat Makeup Looks- #1 Low Blow

 

Urban Decay Naked Heat Eye Makeup Look 5

The Naked Heat palette is everywhere right now and for all of the right reasons. It really is a beautiful palette and of course, because it’s from Urban Decay the shadows are beyond dreamy both to look at and to work with. That’s why even though I only posted my initial thoughts last week (here) I wanted to dedicate a series of posts to it over the next week that will allow me to use every shade to create various looks.

Urban Decay Naked Heat- 7 Looks in 7 days 1

So today I was planning on going for a very natural look.  Does anyone else find that when they tell themselves ‘go natural’ the total opposite always happens?? See the thickness of that winged liner? That was not supposed to be there. I do quite like how this turned out regardless of my rebellion.

Urban Decay Naked Heat- 7 Looks in 7 days 3

 

Unlike my last Naked Heat post where I was a right giddy kipper and used 7 shades to create a look. I was much more reserved this time and just used three.

‘Low Blow’-crease

‘Cayenne’-Crease and outer V

‘Ounce’- Inner corner highlight

I also ran ‘Low Blow’ and ‘Cayenne’ under the lower lashes

Urban Decay Naked Heat- 7 Looks in 7 days 8

Other products used

Primer-MAC Soft Ochre paint pot

Illamasqua loose powder to set

Technic Skinny liquid liner (Review on that here)

Makeup Forever Smokey lash mascara

Avon Supershock gel liner

Hopefully, these posts will give you ideas for looks that you can do with this palette or any similar eyeshadows you have. As well as giving me an excuse to play with the palette some more and put out some relaxed non-review type content. In case you are fed up of hearing about this palette already. I’ll be posting as usual in between doing these looks so please do stick around.
