Beauty Bargains du Jour!

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 27 - 2012

It’s not that I mean to be a bitch, I really don’t.  It’s just that I’m on a spending ban and this time I really mean it – you see, we’re about to move house and furnish it from top to bottom.  Paul says that furnishing it with makeup doesn’t count and despite my protestations, we have to buy proper grown-up shit, like cookers n stuff.  It’s to this end that I’ve been on a strict no-buy for almost a week.  I know! I can’t believe my dedication either.

Let me tell you though… right now, it’s 01.15am and I’ve just had a cup of tea and half a Boost bar and I’m feeling pretty invincible.  I could whip out the debit card in less time than it would take me to hide the chocolate wrapper and I could buy all this stuff *sweeps arm across browser window*.  But I mustn’t.  I promised that I wouldn’t buy anything except the bathroom essentials for at least a month, so I’m going to do a bit of enabling instead.  It’s ok, I know you can handle it.

This is what I would have probably, definitely, most likely bought this week, had I been allowed.  It’s always the bargains that test my lame-arsed resolve.

    You had a spending ban whilst I had a spending spree..bought the new L’oreal Revita Lift Laser Renew serum and cream and a few other pieces, but I also had a £10 gift card so it didn’t break my bank! It was some time since I spent this much in one go and it felt good!
    Bought Marie Claire today and it had a free nail varnish, Ciate in bon bon and will try it later and see how it looks…
    Hope you get your flat in order soon so you can start spending again!! :)

    I did it! I bought the RapidLash.
    I’m currently signed up on a month’s trial to Amazon Prime, so it is coming FOR FREE TOMORROW. Yes, tomorrow I get my grubby trotters on it.

    Thanks Charlotte, you’re a doll :-)
    Let’s hope it works. I have 366 days until my wedding day.
