Fragrance Direct Haul

So I recently stumbled across the Fragrance Direct website and what a surprise, I couldn't help myself and ordered a few new beauty bits at a fraction of the retail prices! I couldn't believe some of the bargains I found and am now officially hooked to this website. If you love high street brands then you can find a selection on this website at prices you can't turn down. Anyway onto what I purchased..

The one thing I've heard a lot of people talk about is the Essie nail varnishes on this website. We all know they retail at £7.99 and you can get them here for just £1.99! Yes you heard correctly, it's such an amazing discounted price. Although you don't get all the colours you would in places such as Boots you just have to keep checking the website in order to find a variety of colours. To be honest when I made this order the colour variation wasn't great, hence why a nail varnish addict like me only got 1, but I got this gorgeous pale pink called 'Delicacy'.

The next product I've heard a lot about is the Dainty Doll blushes, again for £1.99 it's a bargain you cannot turn down. I opted for a cream blush as I've never actually tried one before and there's a first time for everything. It's a lovely pastel pink and I'm currently enjoying using it and getting to grips with it!

I then just picked up a few random bits and bobs that I came across. First is the NYC 16 hour lip stain in a gorgeous fuchsia, it's literally just like a felt tip pen but for your lips. I'm loving the colour so far but not so sure about the lack of moisture and gloss but I wasn't really expecting that much from a stain but for only 99p I haven't lost much. I then got some T-Zone nose pore strips, a friend at work raves about nose strips and absolutely loves them so I thought I'd give them a go. I've only used one so far so I will continue to use the rest to see how I feel about them. Another nail varnish I got was the Bourjois 10 days no chips and I can't see that this one has a name but it's just a lovely ruby red. I have tried this polish and love the colour but can't say that it lasts for 10 days, it does last longer than
some other polishes I have, maybe a good 4-5 days. Then I got W7 eye and brow clear mascara, it was £1.99 and I've used it every day since I purchased. I'll give you a sneak review before I upload the full one but I am in love with it! I've been using it on my brows (hence why it's slightly brown now, ha!) and also before I apply my mascara :)

Finally I picked up a perfume, I've loved this perfume for god knows how long and finally I got myself one! It's a 30ml bottle and it was only £9.99, absolute bargain! It's Sarah Jessica Parker's NYC perfume. I'll tell you now I'm rubbish at describing scents but it's not too heavy and is very much an every day perfume. The bottle is very pretty and patterned and of course pink :) If you've never smelt it and are after a nice cheap perfume I would definitely check this one out!

I hope you enjoyed this haul and keep your eyes peeled for full reviews on the products I've been loving from this haul! If you want to check out the Frangrance Direct website then just click here

  1. Great post! Definitely going to have to check out this website. I have just started trying the Dainty Doll range and love the cream blushers, particularly Paper Roases and recently wrote a blog post on them.

    I love the nail varnish too!

  5. I really want to try the dainty doll blushers, I have heard they are amazing!

    Also think I might need to pick up some Essie nail polishes - can never justify myself to buy one with the full price.

    Loving your blog!

  6. Sounds like an amazing website. I will be avoiding it like the plaque because I know I will just end up buying a lot lol.

    The Body Care do 6 nose strips for a pound - just for future reference. I used to spend like £5 on them from Boots and tbh they are the same quality.

    Great post :)
