Charity Shop Buys: A Make Up Bargain!

Today has been one of the best days ever! I passed my driving test today (thinking of doing a 'Jess's Guide To' on helping others). I also got my uni grant (hello money towards new car) and I also had a lovely, hilarious night out with Aiden, my mum and my brother.

The final thing that made my day was my amazing bargain finds. I was just casually browsing a local charity shop with my mum and Aiden, when I saw this little box of make up at the till. I honestly thought it would be rubbish bits, but when I looked, they had brands including Urban Decay, Ruby & Millie and Max Factor! I nearly bought the whole box - but instead decided to purchase just a few items. I will definitely go back again though. Here's what I bought - you'll be amazed at the prices.

Eyelure Individual False Eyelash Ultra RRP £5.30 - purchased for £1.50

Having struggled with normal false eyelashes, I had been against paying out for these as I knew I'd probably just give up and waste over £5. However, this price was just too good to resist. Although there are 4 missing, I wasn't really that fussed over it, and I can't wait to have a play around with them - especially as they're semi permanent.

Max Factor Lasting Lip Tint Shade 03 RRP £.7.99 - purchased for 50p

I have wanted this for so long but just didn't get round to buying it yet, so you can imagine how happy I was when I saw it for just 50p! It is so easy to apply and the colour is great. I almost prefer it to lipstick!

Max Factor Max Colour Effects Lip Gloss Shade 07 RRP £4.99 - purchased for £1.00

You can never have too many lip glosses can you? I'm not even sure why I purchased this, I think it was more the price. :)

Again, I simply purchased these just to try them out and because they were a bargain. But these colours looked lovely and I can't wait to try them out.

Grand saving of £24.26!!

Pretty good bargain hunting if I do say so myself. :)
