A few months ago I was introduced to the Fragrance Direct website by a fellow blogger and after browsing the website I found so many things I wanted to buy. After filling my basket with way more items than I needed, I had that worry that I always have about finding out how much it’s going to cost me. But this time I didn’t have that worry. The seven products above cost less than £19! Can you believe that?
First of all I had a lovely Calvin Klein lipstick in a bright red because who doesn’t need a lovely red lipstick? The colour was vibrant and it had great lasting power so for £1.99 an amazing investment.
Next up were two blushers which I have used so much of since purchasing – as you can probably see from the photos. The shimmer brick is beautiful as it has a lovely pink colour which you can lighten or darken depending on where you swipe on the brick, and it had a very slight shimmer to it. The second was a dual blusher from W7 with an orange and a pink tone. The colours were very vibrant so you don’t need to use much but they were one of the longest lasting blushers I have ever used. I managed to put it on at 8.30am and it last until bedtime at 11pm; it even got through a spin class!
The concealer palette I haven’t used all that much of but the four shades are designed for different things; as concealer, to brighten the skin, tone down dark patches or reduce redness. The few times I have used it though it has done the trick to brighten my dark eyes and even my skin tone.
I wanted to buy a foundation because in my 25 years on this planet I have never used a foundation! I know can you believe?! I’ve used concealer and BB cream but never a foundation because i’m not good at blending and everything, but I thought for £4 I would indulge in one. The natural tone of the Rimmel product I chose matched my skin really well and it wasn’t too heavy so a great first foundation to try. I was a little worried before trying the Maybelline BB cream as it had quite an orangey colour to it but it actually brightened my skin and was a great match.
The final thing I got was a Rimmel volumising mascara. Over the past year i’ve tried so many mascara’s that I know which one’s I love but for the price this one was pretty great. It’s the sort of thing i’d take to a festival because it wouldn’t matter too much if I lost it!
Overall I had a fantastic experience with Fragrance Direct and got a load of amazing products for such great prices.
