Temptalia's Answer.

I snagged three REAL DEAL eyeshadows from MAC’s Moonbathe from eBay for $30!

      I wish I knew why there’s never anything like this in Europe and why the best we can have is free shipping.

  5. MAC Glimmershimmer, Claire De Lune Eyeshadow from Moonbathe and Freshwater eyeshadow for about AED 105, which works out to about $28.60 from a local equivalent of ebay. Needless to say, I was thrilled to pieces!

  6. Roxanne

    I just bought UD Get Baked Eye Kit for less than 20€(about 26$ and 15£). I’m so happy, I thought I would never find it online!!

  7. i bought duwop lip venom venom flash for 348php (around $7) it was on a clearance sale! :)

  8. Jessie

    I got the Stila Charmed quad for 10!

    I also picked up MAC Shimmermint ss, Sea Nymph e/s from the lure collection, Sunsational e/s, and Prose & Fancy e/s from an online seller for less than 25 inc. ship!

  9. Natalie

    Um, a bunch of Shu Uemura samples? :D Their lipgloss (333s from the pink collection) is the same size as MAC Little Darlings, so I don’t need to buy that shade at all. I also grabbed MUFE diamond powder, Bobbi Brown gel liner from overseas, which were cheaper.

  10. wow thats nice! haven’t been buying any make up. Any ebay seller you won’t mind recommend? I heard there are some fraud so i’m pretty scared hahaha

  11. I’ve bought a few bargains lately including BNIB Mac MSF in Light Medium natural/shimmer for £11.50 on Ebay. :) I also picked up two of the Dior designer palettes for the price of one, but that was only because I had enough points on my Boots advantage card to pay for the second one. :) Plus a brand new Chanel glossimer in Venus for £14 on Ebay (again) which is about £4 less than shop price. :)

  12. Ali

    I got the Too Faced Naughty and Nice eye and lip palette for only $8 at TJ Maxx! They always have awesome beauty bargains. One time I got a $21 lip gloss for $4 and Urban Decay cream eye shadows for $2! Sometimes you have to dig around, but it’s worth it!

  13. Miss_M

    My drugstore had a huge BOGOF sale this past week so I got 2 Maybelline mascara’s, Nivea cleanser and toner and L’Oreal DermaGenesis eye and facecream for half price, which saved me about €50,- euros :)

  14. Tina Marie

    This was back in September, but it has got to be THE best beauty bargain I had ever encountered.
    At a MAC Warehouse Sale, I was able to pick up a package that included the loose sheer powder, a lipglass AND the 180 flat top kabuki (I’m quite sure there was another item in there, likely a lipstsick) all for $5 (Canadian dollars – plus no tax!).
    Best of all, proceeds went to breast cancer research :)

  15. Emmy

    Tina Marie. You got to go to the wearhourse sale? !?!?! SOOO jealous. I’ve been wanting to go to that forever.

  16. Nicole15

    I’ve been doing some shopping recently on AllCosmeticsWholesale.com & have scored some great items. Got my Smashbox blush for $9 & my Smashbox primer for $19. Then I got MAC Luminary lipgloss for $8, Pop Mode lipgloss for $8 & Flowersophy lipgloss for $9. This was my recent haul but in past months I have scored some amazing MAC LE items for incredible prices from this site. Makes a makeup addict quite happy i must say :)

  17. HoneyBrown1976

    I got a Victoria Jackson eyeshadow palette and lip gloss collection for $20, despite its $68 value. Lovely!

  18. Summersweet

    I got some MAC shadows and paint pots for $9 each. Also Fix+ for $10 and the 182 brush for cheap. Really excited about being able to try these new things!

  19. I went into The Body Shop today and they’re having a sale! Some gorgeouse eyeshadows reduced and I got a glitter eyeliner for just £2.50!

  20. coco72

    A friend bought for me in an Outlet two Starflash eyeshadows for….. 3 euros each!!!!

  21. Danielle Sharkey

    My last beauty bargain was when the make up store I go to had a whole bunch of Vincent Longo make up dirt cheap – $5 for lip gloss and lip stick , $3 for lip and eye pencils… I stocked up for my make up kit!!! It was awesome considering these items usually go for around 20 bucks each!! Score!! I was soo happy!!!

    I picked up a Nars eyeshadow duo in Arctic for $8, lip lacquer in Capucine for $6 and Ojon Try Me Hair Ritual kit for $12 @ C.O. Bigelow and 2 For Heavens Sake shower oils @ B&BW for $3.75 a piece this past weekend. Yesterday, I picked up a Jonathan Proudct shampoo and conditioner for $14 (these would have been close to $60 if I paid regular price). I’m hoping I can find some more great deals this weekend:-)

    I got my first MSFN (Med Deep) off of ebay for 7.50 shipped. That has been the best deal on m/u that I have gotten so far! :0)

  25. Nakita

    I bought the Perfect Style brush kit(187,168,222,266 and a cute case) at the CCO for $89.50 (retails for $125.00). With that purchase my brush collection is now complete!
