|I'm a self confessed beauty junkie!|
Its a simple premise, an online boutique which stocks end of lines and discontinued make up including brands like Mac and benefit and even throws in free P & P for good measure.
Its quite a slick looking website and I particularly love that they stock discontinued lines as I am cursed for falling in love with certain foundations or lipsticks only for them to disappear after a few seasons.It also stocks an impressive line of luxury beauty brands and although they don't have a huge range for each brand its actually seems to stock colours and products you would want to buy.
|Urban decay for a few quid|
|Bourjois lippy for buttons|
You do need to be quick, I hesitated to buy a massively discounted black mac eyeliner and then whoosh it was gone and you have to remember this is end of line items so you are not going to find the latest products setting beauty blogs alight but for an inexpensive make up fix its really rather good.
|Plump it up!|
|Dot on upper and lower lips|
You apply two dots on the top and bottom of your lips and rub in. it doesn't tingle which is why I was quite sceptical but it provides a lovely base for your lipstick and I definitely felt my lips looked fuller.
|Lips immediately after-no obvious change|
|Lips a few minutes later-top lip looks slightly fuller|
|With lipstick over the top|
|definitely more pouty|
Its not going to give you Angelina Jolie lips but unlike resorting to cosmetic fillers there is no risk of getting a trout pout either so I was pleasantly surprised. I think I might get some for my professional kit too as would be a lovely product to use for photo shoots or even on brides.
|Vintage Blusher-Looks like a real blast from the past|
The second product I reviewed was the Technic Vintage Rose blusher panstick I was totally intrigued by this as it looked like the kind of make up you would find on your nans dressing table and at £3.99 its a total bargain.
|Like a rather large lipstick|
|Rouging those cheeks|
|Blend, blend or you will look like a doll|
|A little goes a long way but the end result is a lovely glow|
Overall I had a lovely time trying out the Beauty Steals website and will definitely be hopping on over again, if only to see if they restock that Mac eyeliner!
