Buy ALL the Bargains! (Picture Heavy)

Fancy a sneak peek at what's fallen into my basket this fortnight and what'll be popping up for review in the coming weeks? Of course, it's a pay week and it's a Bank Holiday weekend and I totally needed them AND they're not even for me - they're absolutely for the blog. All sounds good, right? I'm almost convinced myself. Let's have a look: 

Maybelline MNY Lip Glosses: 6 for €9.99 - TK Maxx
These gorgeous glosses are all colours that I'll wear, I'm pretty surprised to see them sold in packaging like this in TK Maxx, considering they're from a recent Maybelline collection. I didn't argue however, just paid the lovely lady. 

Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat & Bangle Jangle Polish: €9.99 - TK Maxx
Whilst in TK Maxx, I also spotted these pretties on the way to the till. Considering this base coat is upward of €13 alone and the beautiful pastel mauve polish is upwards of €9, depending on where you shop, both for less than a tenner is seriously bargainous: for a nail nut like Moi, it's a no brainer. 

Revlon Lip Butter - Macaroon - €11.20 - Boots
I've made two purchase this week that are fully blempt on Karen LovelyGirlybits, she can't even deny it. I'm not a huge fan of Revlon Lip Butters as I've said but seeing her post about this shade last week I just couldn't NOT pick it up. See her post here - it's a doozy. 

Origins Modern Friction Dermabrasion - €44 (1 years worth!)
The second LovelyGirlyBits inspired purchase was Origins Modern Friction Dermabrasion. I had been searching for a new dermabrasion product for aeons but seeing Karen's post on this sealed the deal for me. Origins have a new section in Debenhams, Blanchardstown and since discovering them on Thursday, I've now visited them twice just to smell ALL the things. I'll have a full review of this up vay soon but just to say I used it last night for the first time and have spent the day appreciatively stroking my own cheek. In public. The shame. 

Catrice Precious Nectar - Coolibri Eyeshadow Pen - €3.29
From the new, Limited Edition Coolibri range, I picked up this eyeshadow pen in Precious Nectar. It's. Fabulous. Multi use and next to no pee, what's not to love?

Urban Decay - Naked - €34 (Not for the sample)(obvs)
This isn't technically a purchase but I did have the opportunity to try out Uban Decay's new Naked foundation today. I'm seriously impressed. It comes in 18 shades and is still picture perfect after 7 hours wear time. Expect a full review very soon. 

MAC SuperWatt Eyeshadow; €18
Coming from the new Electric Cool range, Superwatt is so much more than an eyeshadow. I'm thoroughly dissapointed with it in the pan but on the skin? It's. Stunning. 

Catrice Ginger & Fred: €3.79
 I've never owned a Catrice lippie before but just couldn't pass Ginger & Fred. It's a beautiful dusky deep pink with a golden microshimmer but is super soft on the lips. I loves it already. 

MAC New York Apple - FREE!
Probably my best bargain of the week, given that once I had finally chosen on this red based pink to join my kit, it turned out that they were no longer in stock. The wiley SA sliced off the tip of the bullet, cleaned the edges and handed it to little ol' me, free & clear, no charge,score! I'll be slicing the centre of this one to use with my lip brush. Love. 

Essence Better Late than Never: €1.29
The brightest raspberry/coral pink I've yet to see, there was hardly a blink before the decision was made on this purchase - 'Ave it!

Estée Lauder: Nouveau Riche - €20
I. Just. But. And........ Look at it, just look at it...

Urban Decay - Smoked Palette - €40
Yes I already have Naked 1 and 2 but I use them every single day. Smoked joining my collection never really was in question. I'm so excited to start playing with these super pigmented colours and putting together some go to looks.

*Aaaaand breathe*. As I've said these will all be making appearances over the coming weeks but if there's something you want to see sooner rather than later do please just let me know.

How about you? Have you picked up any bargains this week? I'd love to know...
