Today I have off work, but my boyfriend Ollie is working :( this morning, I was wondering what I was going to do to keep busy all day, and wasn't looking forward to being alone in the house all day. Ollie suggested blogging. Of course, but what about? So he came up with this challenge...
10 products for £10 beauty challenge!
So, we went into hammersmith where he works, he gave me £10 and sent me off in the search to buy 10 beauty products for £10. The rules were simple, I have to buy 10 items, can spend no more than £10 on those items, and if I do, I have to give him the £10 back!
Did I do it? YES! It was really difficult, and some of the products I'm not sure will be usable, haha, but that's the fun of it! I can't wait to do reviews of these! Should I do a "10 for £10 review" and review all the products, or do you just want to see reviews on a few? Let me know!! I had so much fun doing it and I think you should do it too! (it's much more fun someone giving you the £10 than using your own money!!) Luckily, in Hammersmith, are a lot of charity shops, cheap stores like poundland, beauty base, "beauty on the broadway" market stand in the station, and Savers. I'm aware that you might not have these nearby to you so you can't purchase this products for the same amount of money, I'm sorry about that!
I know the disney tangle bubble bath is technically not beauty or make up but they had it in shampoo as well, I just chose the bubble bath instead! So cute!
1. Curly hair and 2. added volume mousse from Boots. 2 for £1.79.
3. Disney Tangle bubble bath from Savers. £1.
4. Huggies baby wipes. Superdrug. £1. I use baby wipes for removing make up, smudges, cleaning cosmetics cases/lids etc.,
5. Revlon nail varnish in Tuscan Sun. £1 from poundland.
6. Cheek tint by chit chat. £1 from poundland. (This looks... interesting...)
7. Juicy lipstick by chit chat in bronze. £1 from poundland.
8. Miss sporty liquid eye shadow. 79p from The British Heart Foundation charity shop.
9. NYC glossy lip balm in applelicious pink. 99p from The British Heart foundation charity shop!
10. NYC highlight and contour kit. 99p from The British Heart Foundation charity shop.
Amazing! I have to be honest, I totally would NOT have been able to do it without discovering that the british heart foundation charity shop had quite a big stand at the back of the store with bowls of mixed make up, miss sporty, NYC. Can you believe it that I got that amazing NYC glossy lip balm for 99p?!?! It has made my day. If you live close to Hammersmith, go!!!
So there is my challenge complete even under budget. Now I challenge you! :)
I will share with you the rest of my haul! It was such a good one, I got some real bargains.
