I had no major plans to do any Black Friday shopping in all honesty. At the time I was fairly broke and couldn’t really justify more beauty purchases. As I did a blog post about the deals that were going on, I was aware of them though and I couldn’t help having a look on Beauty Bay!
I didn’t buy a huge amount, but I thought I would give you a look at the couple of bits I did pick up. I picked up bits I actually needed and then a couple of random things just to try. Beauty Bay had 30% off for the Black Friday weekend and they had a queued system to actually get onto the site. This shopping was done on Sunday evening, so although I was eyeing up Zoeva palettes and the likes too, they were all sold out! Probably for the best as my bank account would have taken a major battering 🙂 Zoeva products are actually cheaper on Beauty Bay in general for some reason, if you’re ever in the market though.
I spent €25 in total on the website which got me free shipping to Ireland.
I needed a brow pencil and an eyeshadow primer. So, I thought I would try some from a different brand. The LA Girl products are cheap in general and with 30% off they were even cheaper.
I picked up one of their PRO.primer HD Eyeshadow Primer in Nude.
You can see it on the website here.
Then, for brows I got two of their Shady Slim Brow Pencils.
One in Medium Brown and one in Espresso. Just because I’ve been enjoying using two tones of pencil through my brows of late. I thank Eylure for that. (Review of their Fleur De Force Brow Define Pencil here).
The LA Girl Shade Slim Brow Pencils come in ten shades which is pretty awesome from the Beauty Bay website here.
While I was browsing the brand, I decided to also get some their eye pencils to try as well.
Two shades of their Glide Gel Pencils went into my basket. Brown and Gypsy Teal. I find it hard to say no to a teal eye liner 🙂
These pencils are available in 19 shades here.
I decided to try one of their Endless Semi Permanent Auto Eyeliners too. The shade Olive was clicked. I like to play around with coloured liner.
These are available here.
My last Beauty Bay purchase was an eyeshadow from Makeup Geek. I went with one of their foiled eyeshadow in the shade Whimsical.
It reminded me of Mac’s All That Glitters in the picture and I thought a more intensely pigment version of that shade would be a nice addition to my Makeup Geek collection. It’s definitely way more pink and cool toned though.
