Beauty bargains haul.

Hello everyone, 
I hope your doing well on this dreary Monday evening. My day has been pretty boring, so I thought to perk myself up I would do, as promised my beauty bargains haul!  

Everyone of these items was either 50p or a £1, pretty amazing I'm sure you'll agree! Just to give you some background, I saw an add for this beauty clearance in my local paper and made sure I kept the address. When we got there it was basically just a big warehouse space with tables laid out in rows and then little buckets with all of the products in. On arrival everyone was give a plastic bag with you then filled with what you wanted. I have to say it was hardly the classiest experience, but it was fun!

First up are the face products, I didn't buy anything other than blusher (surprise surprise) and I was seriously impressed with what I did bring home with me.

I jumped at the opportunity to buy Wet 'n wild products because I never see them here in the UK. I adore the peachy pink shade of this blush and the pigmentation and wear time are fab. The middle swatch is a bodyography one. This product was billed as being able to be used on the lips, in the brows and on the cheeks, but I know the only place I'll be using it! This is perfect when you have quite a bold eye as well as a striking lip, because I think a strong cheek colour as well can turn the whole thing a bit pantomime dame.  Lastly is a Color cosmetics blusher. I sort of threw this in and didn't really think about it until I got it home, but I was pleasantly surprised! It actually reminds me a lot of Sleek `Pixie pink` 

I ended up buying my fair share of eyeshadows on this trip, I'm glad I did though! 

I won't go through everything but my favourites so far have to be the Wet and Wild cream eyeshadow and liner duo (the silver packaged one) because it is so easy to use to create a lovely everyday look. The chunky pencil is actually a concealer stick, but I bought it to use on my waterline and it works a treat. The Collection dazzle dust I found is a stunning duochrome pink gold, so I can't wait to find a way to wear it! 

One thing I was probably too excited about were eylure lashes, they were only £1 each! I decided to get three for that very reason. 

I went for two of the upper and lower lash sets as they were such good value and then one pair of the brown toned lashes. 

Of course one thing I was very excited about was all the lip products that would be on offer!  I love each one of these and they aren't too similar to anything else in my collection either which is definitely a good thing.

The Wet 'n Wild lipsticks are incredibly pigmented and the colours I bought are beautiful; one a really rich plummy red and the other a bright fushia that makes my teeth look really white! The bourjois products are interesting as well. The little pink pot is filled with a really watery stain that then dries and stays put all day once it has been applied, whereas the `lipcream` is pretty similar to my beloved cream puffs and a lovely brick red colour. Finally the two collection lipsticks are goregous everyday shades which.

I decided to pick up these lip liners as I only had one bright red one;

The middle swatch is perfect for when I'm wearing any sort of berry toned lipsticks and the other two for pinks and peaches, so I'm really glad I spotted these! 

Finally are the nail polishes I went for;

I've already worn the purple wet 'n wild shade with the Maybelline top coat and it looked amazing! I'm really look forward to using the other two now as well :) 

So there you have it, all of these fab products for under £20!

Have you tried any of these products? What's your favourite from this haul?
