In all honesty, this year's Christmas/Boxing day sales didn't impress or excite me as much as previous years. I searched through all of my favourite websites, both fashion and beauty.. and the only one that really stood out to me was Look Fantastic, which is actually where I purchased the majority of my post-christmas sales goodies last year. I'd highly recommend you have a look at their offerings if you're a student on a budget or if you're bank balance is running low after Christmas. A brand whose price points are reasonably discounted on Look Fantastic is Bare Minerals, and there is quite a good selection to choose from.. so it's definitely worth your while to have a look. I'll list my favourite picks below and of course leave links so you can purchase some of your must-haves or maybe even some new products to try and test!
Bare Minerals Marvellous Moxie Lipsticks
Look Fantastic Price: £12.75
At £12.75, these lipsticks are giving MAC a run for their money. I'd confidently say that the quality of these beat some Chanel and YSL lipsticks that I own. The formula is super creamy and long-lasting. I often wear one of my favourite shades 'Live Large' on a long day of work or at an all-day event and I rarely need to re-apply throughout the day. I'd definitely recommend!
Bare Minerals Marvellous Moxie Lip Liner
Look Fantastic Price: £9.75
Also from the Marvellous Moxie line are these incredible lip liners which aren't like the standard pencil liner; they are much more creamy and easy to glide on. I actually own just one of these liners in the shade 'Revved' which is a brown-ish mauve, although I can safely say I'll be buying many more in the future. They are definitely up there with MAC liners.
Bare Minerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara
Look Fantastic Price: £13.50
I haven't tried this mascara (yet) so I'm unable to give a review, but through reading the online customer reviews, I definitely want to give this a go next! Bare Minerals claims that this mascara gives volume and length to the lashes which will last all day. I'm usually a skeptic when brands make so many amazing claims about their products, but I've never purchased a product from Bare Minerals which has left me unsatisfied, so I'd say this one is a safe bet!
Look Fantastic Price: £19.50
This is one of those products I've been using since I was a teeny-bopper learning to apply make-up for the first time. I find this product works best when applied on top of a light-weight liquid foundation, for added coverage and colour. If you've got normal/dry skin, this would probably work great with no product underneath, but if you've got an oily complexion like me, you might want to use it for setting other foundations as it tends to not sit well on my skin when used on its own.
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil
Look Fantastic Price: £16.00
This mineral veil is a great alternative to the foundation above if you'd rather skip adding extra colour. This product works amazingly at keeping your foundation (regardless of brand or formula) lasting all day whilst minimising pores and giving an airbrush effect. I tend to prefer this product in the compact pressed powder form, although that's down to personal preference. All in all, an amazing product that I'd recommend to any make-up lovers, whatever your skin type.
Let me know in the comments section if you're planning to purchase any of these amazing Bare Minerals products. Are there any other products that you'd recommend to me!?
