Benefit Bargains...

Although I do love a good sale, the sales this year has done more damage than good. During the past week I heave been sucked into the sales and have probably bought over £££s worth of stuff (ahem crap I do not need) over 4 days of shopping.
During a shopping trip to Harrods last week, I was so excited to walk into the beauty hall and find that nearly all the brands (99%) were having sales. Christmas gift items, limited editions and general christmas season stock. If you follow my Twitter then you may have already heard me rave about it. 40% off Armani cosmetics and 50% off Laura Mercier, YSL, Clinique, Clarins, Paul&Joe etc ....

Upon approaching the Benefit counter I saw some gift sets but didn't take much notice. Having heard rave reviews about their newest blusher, I wanted a closer look. Bella Bamba was gorgeous! Now, here comes the maths.

Bella Bamba was £23.50 on its own, BUT a gift set containing the full size blusher PLUS a mascara PLUS a lipgloss PLUS a small sized highlighter was reduced to £19.75. It doesn't take a scientist to work it out really? So the ending to this story is that I got it for cheaper than original WITH more goodies in the bag. STEAL!

If you haven't been to the Harrods sale, your seriously missing out. I checked the website and a huge amount of the stuff in store is not online. Of course, I didn't only buy this set, I also bought some half price YSL cleansing waters, fragrances and paul and joe stuff BUT that's a whole other story.

Have you bought any bargains in the sale this year? do share...
