Hello lovelies! So as some of you know, I have recently joined the world of Ebay and I must say in the two weeks I have been a member I have become hooked! I love the excitement of bidding on an item and grabbing a bargain - and boy have I got some bargains so far! I am going to share with you what I have won so far and I am going to split it into several posts as I have got quite a bit (I must admit I did get a bit trigger happy with the bidding :p) This post is going to be dedicated to my beauty and make-up purchases, I thought it was a great way to try different products without having to fork out full price for them, so if you have something you want in particular it is really easy to search; there is everything from high street to designer branded make up and everything in between, and you can get many things for way under face value!

Clinique Job Lot

If you don't know what a job lot is, it's basically people selling products in one sale rather than selling them separatly. I picked up this mini set of Clinique products for £3.76 + p&p, which I think is amazinggg, considering the prices of the full sized versions! Included in this set is Clinique Self Sun 50ml (RRP £18 for 125ml), Clinique Happy Body Smoother 75ml (RRP £26 for 200ml), Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter 75ml (£19 for 200ml), Clinique Perfectly Real Compact Makeup 2g ($25 for 12g) , Clinique Colour Surge Eyeshadow 1.8g  (£26 for eyeshadow quad 4.8g).

It's a great way of trying products out before splurging, if I was buying these by Clinique's pricing standards, it would have cost me 10x the price I paid which is insaneeeee! I have seen many Designer beauty products such as MAC, Chanel and Dior going for dirt cheap prices, so it's always worth having a little search and see what comes up!

Maybelline Eyecolour Express

I have been using one of these for a while and it was sadly running out, so when I saw these on Ebay I couldn't resist buying it, after all it was something I needed to buy anyway ;). This is Maybelline Eyecolour Express Loose Powder in Golden Brown for £1.30 +p&p (RRP 5.99). It is great for defining your eyes when applying shadow, I use it with a nude coloured eyeshadow as the base and then add shadow to my eyelids with this for a sultry look.

Clinique Age Defense BB Cream Broad Spectrum

I was in the market for a new primer/BB cream, I currently use  Rimmel Fix And Perfect Pro Primer and bought this as it was half the price of Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer which I had been using before that and Iwas trying to save money. But compared to Revlon (which is ace btw), the Rimmel primer is shocking, it did nothing for my skin and didn't mattify whatsoever; and with slightly oily skin this was my biggest concern. So when i saw this Clinque Age Defense BB Cream, I thought I'd give it a go!

As this promised to control oily skin and last a long time i really wanted to try it, it also helps to improve your skin by protecting you from UVA rays and using ingredients that soothe your skin as you wear it. This is a full sized version and it cost me £4.89 + P&P - a real bargain! The full priced version would have cost me £26!! This product really does deliver on it's promises, it keeps my skin shine free for the majority of the day and makes my skin look in better condition! My only problem is it makes me look a little ghostly, which is usually quite hard as I'm already so pale! But this isn't really a problem as I put it on under my foundation anyway, but if I bought it again, I would get the next shade up!

Clinique Almost Lipstick

You may be thinking I've gone a bit Clinique crazy, but who can resist when there are such bargains to be had?! This is Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Flirty Honey. It's a lip balm with a tiny hint of colour that is super moisturising. For this 1.2g lipstick, I paid £4.40 + p&p, the full priced version for 1.9g is £17, so think I did pretty well here! It is really nice to wear and it's good to wear as a top coat to a lipstick to add shine to your lips.

Maybelline Colour Sensation Lip Stain

I am a girl who loves brightly coloured lips, whether it be red, pink or coral, i think my lips are my best facial feature and I like to showcase this. This Maybelline Colour Sensational Lip Stain in Shy Red (RRP £5.99) cost me £1.99 + P&P. I love it because you can build up the level of colour you want by adding another layer and it STAYS on your lips, it lasts so much longer than lipsticks and glosses. It gives a nice matte finish, but you can always add a layer of gloss if you want some extra oomph.

Max Factor Vibrant Curve Lipgloss

I wanted a nice new lipgloss to go with my other lip products and I came across Maxfactor Vibrant Curve Effect Lip Gloss, I got it in 'In the spotlight' which is a nice coral colour. It goes on quite sheer but it is very shimmery and it has a lovely watermelon scent! This cost me £1.99, which is a quarter of the price it would have cost me to buy it in Boots (£7.99). As a student, I'm all about saving money!

What do you think of my beauty bargains?? I also have some garments, footwear and jewellery Ebay bargains that I have purchased, so I will have these up and running for you soon! If you would like to grab a bargain I have my own Ebay selling page and I'd love it if you would check my items out! I have a lot to clear out so please keep checking over the next few weeks :)
