debbie's bargain hunt

Photos and comments on my bargain buys... Of course, a few higher priced items may appear from time to time if I feel that the quality outweighs the cost.

Outfit & Makeup for Saturday 23rd April

This is my first Outfit Of The Day post... I haven't done one until now because I've thought they were best left to the slimmer girls :-O 
Still, I wanted a chance to show some outfits that have been particularly good value, and some of my new make up bits that I've been trying out...

Under £10 OOTD:

All Saints vest top £0 (Big Wardrobe swap), Warehouse acid wash denim mini skirt (£3 from British Heart Foundation charity shop), Jewelled Jelly Sandals £5 (from Pitsea Market - brand is "Ella"). 

Today's Makeup Choices (so look away now if you don't want to see my ugly mug!):

I'm wearing The Body Shop Tinted Glow Enhancer as an alternative to my usual foundation. I have no idea of the RRP since I got it for £0 in a Big Wardrobe swap. 
MAC Select Cover-Up in NW15 under eyes. £13.50.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Deep as an all over bronzer / face powder.
MAC Powder Blush in Buff (Matte)
MAC Cooled Pink Creme Colour Base (I usually use a Benefit highlighter, either high beam or moon beam, but this makes a nice change as has more of a pink tone). 
MAC Haute & Naughty Mascara. This was free with a MAC online order :)
MAC Copperplate Matte Eye Shadow on my eyebrows (I can't get a good colour match with actual eyebrow products and this applied with a slanted brush works a treat). 
MAC Lipstick in Snob (Satin). I'm wearing this with MAC Dazzleglass in Get Rich Quick over the top, just to tone down the pinkness of the lipstick.

I've included the prices where I can remember, but some of these items I've had quite a while. All my MAC items come from the Covent Garden MAC store, or MAC online. Where some products can be bought cheaply on places such as ebay, I wouldn't recommend this with MAC because there are SO many fakes around!! Compared to other department store type make up brands, MAC is fairly priced and lasts a long time. You show your face every day so it's important to chose products that you're happy with. xxx



  1. dont be silly,the ootd looks fab and its nice to put a face to a name,although im not quite as brave lol.
    i think i am going to have to try mac as ive heard so much about it but nobody will ever swap it with me lol :P

  2. Debbie! You look fabulous!

  3. Thanks to both of you :D

    Mixnmatch1, you should definitely try some MAC products, I'm not an eyeshadow person so much but I've found the lipsticks and glosses to be great value for money, and the foundations etc are ideal for me because they do such a good range of pale colours unlike some other brands. (I actually love Dior foundations but can only wear them in the summer because in the winter they don't do a colour pale enough for me!!)
    Underthebirchtree seems to list a lot of MAC for swaps so you should keep an eye on her wardrobe :D


  4. You are slim you muppet :) Outift looks awesome, always good when you get All Saints for free! x
