Holiday Beauty Bargains!

Well I’m back from holiday and I realised that the main things I bought on holiday were all Beauty Product!! So I decided to do a blog on what I bought. I will also do a Duty Free blog of all the products I bought on the way home at the airport too. 

The first product I bought was a repurchase. It was Estee Lauders Double wear in 1C1 Cool Bone. I ADORE THIS FOUNDATION!!! Of all the foundations I have ever tried, this is by far my favourite. It matches my skin tone perfectly and gives a full coverage, which is a must for covering my imperfections. I also find that this product doesn’t go cakey halfway through the day. It is pricey at £28.50 but it lasts as you don’t need alot of it. I got this abroad for around £23.00 so a decent £5.50 saving 🙂 You can purchase this product at any Estee’ Lauder counter.


The second Product was MAC Eye shadow in Satin. This is a slightly pink nude colour, with a matte finish. I love this colour because I have naturally pink eyelids, so this covers the colour but the result looks natural like I’m not wearing shadow. This was around £10 so a £2.50 saving. For more colours check out the MAC Website at


Next was a double purchase from NARS. I bought these not for the saving but more for the availability as there are no NARS Suppliers near me and I like to try before I buy. I bought The NARS Gentle eye make up remover, which is also great for removing lipstick too. It Retails in the UK at £18.50. Secondly I bought the NARS Lip Crayon in Cruella. I loved the name of this product, although I assure you I am Dalmatian friendly!!

This is a longwearing Matte lip pencil in a gorgeous dark red colour and retails at £17.50. Grab yours at


My Final and Favourite product was The Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in 01 Rose. Now I have been waiting for this product to launch and when it launched at the beginning of Feb I was so excited!! I waited until I went on holiday in the hope that I could pick it up a little bit cheaper, which i was lucky enough to do. This Product retails in the UK at £26, but it really is worth it!! The first thing that caught my attention was the lovely shimmery tube and I was quite surprised that it had a pump dispenser, which is great for getting the right amount of product. This product smells delicious, I really can’t describe how yummy it smells.

Secondly, it glides on so smoothly it feels lovely and silky on the skin. I wore the base under foundation although it can be worn on it’s own. The effects were amazing. Unfortunately I couldn’t capture the effect on camera which is a shame but It gives a lovely shimmer to the skin, I felt like I didn’t need to use highlighter when I used this product as it gave me a healthy shimmer without it.

I cannot recommend this enough!! Available from any Clarins Counter or at
