Bargain Buys with Swatches!

Whilst doing a bit of retail therapy I came across a few great bargains and products I thought I'd share with you!

I found all of these items in a shop that's fast becoming my favourite: Savers.


Whilst in Savers I picked up these three tanning products at just 79p each!
Left: "Secret Lace" - Dark Hydrating Tanning Milk, 50ml.
Center: "Rockin' Amber" - Super Hydrating Bronzing Milk, 50ml.
Right: "Cashmere Glaze" - Ultra Rich Hydrating Cream, 30ml.

They do larger versions of these, but I figured I'd try the smaller sizes to see if they were any good!
At a later stage I will be doing a closer review of these.


Regardless of whether the sun is actually shining this summer, we still all want that radiant sun-kissed glow. I found this lovely bronzed compact in Savers for just £2.99.


I love this compact, and how these colours pick up in the light. They make the perfect compliment to a bronzed complexion (real or not).

The lipglosses are lovely too! My favourite is the plum colour on the bottom left <3

This is another great find, again from Savers
Part of the 'Sunkissed' range, it offers 12 neutral eyeshadows in a handy-sized palette at only £1.49.


This palette offers more great eyeshadows to compliment a 'sunkissed' look. I think it's a nice sized palette, though I doubt I'd be using the supplied eyeshadow applicators!

Last, but DEFINiTELY not least, this has to be my favourite find of the lot.
The layout of the palette itself reminds me a bit of the Z-Palette.
This palette contains 28 eyeshadow in a great range of colours. 
It is by far the biggest bargain offering that many shadows at only £3.99!

It's hard to tell in the photo's, but the colour payoff is amazing, and the colours are so complimentary to each other, making it easy to create so many different looks. At a glance I can see at least 10 different eye looks you can create with this!

I'm so happy with my finds, and I definitely got a lot for my money.
And I hope this helps anyone in need of a spree without doing too much damage to their bank balance!
