How I Saved OVER £60 on High End Make Up! | Mini Haul

I'm always (sort of) kidding that there should be a Bargain Hunt for beauty products, and I should be on it. I know how to nab a good beauty bargain! Keep reading to find out how I saved over £60 on make up including from Tarte, Nars, Benefit, YSL and Becca! 

I had run out of my eye make up remover and I decided I wanted to buy the Clinique Take the Day Off Make Up Remover for Eyes and Lips. I'd used a deluxe sample before and loved it! I had also ran out of my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, and had been waiting to get it because I knew that I had a £5 reward on my Debenhams beauty club card. Anyway, my Uni is a very short distance from town so I had planned to go straight to Debenhams to buy both after my lecture. 

During, however, I got an e-mail from Debenhams saying you get £5 worth of points on your loyalty card if you spend £30. If I had gone into store, I wouldn't have spent £30 in one transaction because I would have purchased the 2 items at separate counters, and I'm pretty sure women who work on beauty counters make commission so I don't want to be that dick that asks if I can take it to another till. So I decided to order online so that I could get both in one transaction. The Clinique Make Up Remover is £17, the Urban Decay setting spray is £23, so I'd spent £40 to get a £5 reward, and redeemed my existing reward to bring the total down to £35 (the £5 worth of points gift will be added the third Thursday in February - but it'll still save me money towards my next purchase!). When I got to the check out, I saw that if you used click and collect, you got a £5 voucher. As I said, my Uni is right on top of town so I would have been there anyway. The next day, I went and collected my parcel  and got my £5 voucher.

I immediately went to the beauty section and spent my £5 voucher on the Benefit Brow Brush and Spoolie, which is normally £15.50. So in Debenhams, I saved £10 immediately and also got a £5 reward for my next purchase! 

Floating around in my purse, I found an old Fenwicks beauty card that was half full up with stamps (I think you need to get 18 to redeem £10?). I looked at my latest beauty card which was also half full, and together they added up to the total number of stamps. So I used both to redeem £10 off the new YSL The Shock mascara - which is usually £23. 

Next up is my Space NK bargain! I had a £20 reward on my N.Dulge card, and Space NK were offering £15 off with a £60 or over spend. I bought another of my holy grail Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, as well as their new Soft Matte Concealer, and the new Becca Primer. This order should have come to £78, but with my discounts I got it down to just £43. 

Finally, Tarte was having a flash discount! And as luck would have it, the cult favourite Shape Tape was in stock in my shade, which it hasn't been for ages! So I ordered it and the new Pro Glow palette, and saved just under £8. 

What's the best beauty bargain you've ever gotten?
