Now I know you know how much I love Fragrance Direct. In fact, I just blogged about my recent Rimmel nail varnish purchase from them - I just can't stay away! Their prices are just SO cheap! I bought a couple of items from there recently along with something from No7 with a spare £5 off voucher I had.
(l-r: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Ambre Rose, Bourjois Illuminating Blush Creme & No7 Perfect Lips Liner in Nude)
First up, here's what I bought from No7...
It's the Perfect Lips Liner in the shade Nude. It retails for £7.50 but it was only £2.50 with the voucher, bargain! I had my eye on this product after seeing it featured on celebrity make-up artist Lisa Eldridge's blog. It definitely lives up to the hype; it's soft and creamy, and the perfect nude shade. I use it whenever I'm wearing a nude/pale pinky lipstick (I've got a red/bright pink one already for those colours). This is fab!
Here's what's currently on my No7 wishlist...
- Another Exceptional Definition Mascara in Brown/Black RRP £12.50. I bought this quite a while ago and using it everyday has taken its toll on it! This is my holy grail brown mascara without a day. It's like my eyelashes but better. Read my review here.
- Cheek Tint Blusher in Peach/Rose Silk RRP £9 each. I've swatched both these colours instore and they feel/look amazing!
- Silky Leg Oil RRP £11. I love the sound of this, I'll use it just before I go out for a sexy sheen! I've just seen it's currently sold out online, noo!
- Triple Protection Tinted Moisturiser RRP £12. Just because.
Hurry up No7 vouchers, I'm not paying full price!!!
Meanwhile, here's what I picked up from Fragrance Direct...
It's the Bourjois Illuminating Blush Creme, which was only £1.99!
I use it as a highlight on my cheekbones, it's lovely and creamy and has a slight glimmer to it, I was surprised by how small it was but it's perfect for popping in your handbag!
Lastly, I bought the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Ambre Rose for £1.99 again! I'd read about it on Lollipop26's beauty blog (now Buy Now, Blog Later) and had to have it :)
Here it is without flash...
and with flash...
It's a creamy pastel pink, mmm!
Here's my lips before...
I am seriously in love with this lipstick. It's so soft and creamy and perfect for daytime wear, it's lovely and subtle. For £1.99 you can't beat the price either! Woop woop!

FOTD including all products...
I'm really pleased with these bargain products, you can't beat Fragrance Direct for cosmetics at seriously low prices! (and no, I'm not affiliated with them LOL). Did you guys know they sell MAC now? I've got my eyes on some of their eyeshadows, yum!
What are your thoughts on Fragrance Direct and/or No7? Would you recommend any of their products? If you haven't tried either of these brands/stockists before, I would seriously advise you do :)!
