Fragrance Direct Haul

So recently I came across Fragrance Direct which is an online store (very much like Boots and Superdrug) I was first drawn in by their amazing discount on Essie nail varnishes, these are all a bargain at £1.99 each, however, I have sooo many nail polishes so I decided to stick with products that I have been wanting to try for a while now.


So here is what I received:


W7 Honolulu Bronzer* - £2.25

This is an amazing dupe for Benefits Hoola bronzer, you honestly cannot tell the difference. I love the fact this is a matte bronzer, meaning its perfect for contouring. The packaging is also super cute and travel friendly because it comes with a cute little brush.


W7 Candy Floss Blusher* - £2.50

This is a dupe for Benefits blush, Like the Honolulu bronzer, this comes with the cutest packaging and a little brush. It’s a gorgeous baby pink colour, which is so versatile. I have worn this after fake tanning and on my natural pale skin and both times it has given me the most lovely colour - I think it's more light a very pale pink highlighter, I like it use it over a seperate blusher to give me a dewy finish! 


Elizabeth Arden Colour Intrigue Cheek Colour in Berry Blush* - £4.50

I have been after a dark berry blush for a while as I think it looks just beautiful with a pale complexion.  I was thinking of getting one of the sleek blushers, but after seeing an Elizabeth Arden blush for only £4.50 I thought I would give this a go. I’m so glad I did, the packaging is so travel friendly because it has a brush within it. It also feels like butter, so it blends and applies really easily. 


Carmex Flavoured lip balm in Cherry* - £ 2.25

My lips have been really dry this winter and Carmex seems to be the only brand that is keeping them well hydrated. I love the taste of this lip balm, it’s like them cherry drop sweets – yum! It’s also super moisturising without feeling thick and gloupy. I couldn’t recommend this product enough is you are a dry lips sufferer!


Carmex Moisture Plus in Pink Tint* - £3.99

I thought I would give this product a try because it has a pink tint within it and I love how moisturising Carmex products are. The pink tint is a light baby pink colour, it looks so lovely on its own and gives a lovely wash of colour to your lips without it sticking to your ‘dry chapped bits’. It’s also perfect for days when you don’t want to wear a lot of makeup.


Real Techniques Powder Brush* - £9.99

Just look how big this brush is? I have wanted this brush for a while now, as I think it’s going to be perfect for applying my face powder evenly and quickly. I love real techniques make up brushes, They are so dense and easy to clean because they are synthetic. Dare I say it, I actually prefer RT brushes over my MAC ones!


Real Techniques Blusher Brush* - £8.99

How beautiful is the shape of this brush? I’ve not seen any other brushes that are this shape! I thought this would be great for applying my blusher to the apples of my cheeks. This brush has different length bristles which will make it fabulous for easily blending your blusher out.


Gucci Guilty 30ml Perfume* – £31.95

Who doesn’t love a little bit of Gucci?! I absolutely love this perfume, I was trying to pick some up in the January sales but nowhere had it on offer, when I saw this for £31.95 it had to me mine! I love how luxurious the bottle looks with the gold finish and Gucci logo. If you like the smell of Lady Million then you will love this, whenever I wear it my Mum always compliments it – it’s her fav! The lasting power of this fragrance is fantastic too, I can still smell it after wearing it all day.


Paco Rabanne Black XS Potion for Her 50ml* (includes a free clutch bag) - £33.99

This is a new limited edition scent for 2014 so I was really excited to try this as I love Paco Rabanne scents. The bottle looks like some sort of love potion, so I can understand where the name came from! This scent is gorgeous and is now my ‘go to’ every day scent because it lasts for ages and smells gorgeous, you can defiantly smell the grapefruit extract within it. This perfume would also be perfect for the evening if you like more of a fruiting refreshing smell. I didn't actually receive the free clutch bag for some reason, but you are supposed to receive one. The free clutch bag you receive is black and has a picture of a skull on the front, it’s such a quirky clutch bag which will be perfect teamed with some big silver costume jewellery and a little black dress.


Overall, I love every single item from my Fragrance Direct Haul, i’m so pleased and cannot wait to purchase some of their Essie and OPI nail varnishes. Please check out Fragrance Direct by visiting the discounts they have on products is amazing, I cant believe I haven’t come across them sooner!
