Fragrance Direct Mini Haul!

I expect you've heard of Fragrance Direct by now - they sell seriously discounted make-up and nail polish as well as perfumes. So of course, being a sucker for discounts, as soon as I laid eyes on all the cheap goodies they had I had to snap them straight up! I tried to be constrained so this post is just a mini haul for you to get a brief overview of what I bought. I choose four polishes: A Sally Hansen base and top coat (£2.50), as I can always trust Sally Hansen for a strong top coat that does the job, a gorgeous muted Essie colour (£1.99), a classic OPI colour (£3.99) and a black CK polish with tiny sparkles in (£1.99), which looks super sophisticated on the nails. As you can see, the prices are incredible!
I also got five lipsticks. Three are CK ones (each £1.99), the first I've tried of this brand, and I really like the colours and formula; they're quite creamy and very pigmented. The other two are Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipsticks (each £1.99 also) which are more like a hybrid of a balm and lipstick. I particularly like 'Cherry Pop', which is an orangey-red which is very easy to wear. I'll definitely be reviewing a few of these products very soon!



Next on my wishlist from Fragrance Direct are the Dainty Doll Blushers!

  24. I'm a little wary of ordering OPI from Fragrance Direct as you hear of so many fakes being out there, and I think £3.99 is a little too cheap personally, given their RRP, not to mention the fact the FD don't have that right in the first place! x

  25. Such a great haul! I am saddened by the expensive shipping costs to Australia though :(. x
