First ever blog sale buys

I’d never bought anything from a blog sale before, but I’ve heard plenty of talk about them and know that people get some fantastic bargains from time to time. I’d only, really, want to buy from a blog sale of someone who I’ve read for a while because you feel like you can trust someone (hopefully) (And in this case I could, of course).

Soo… when the lovely Kat at Tales of a Pale face announced her Blog sale a short while ago I just had to have a look! 

I have wanted the blackcurrant balmi for quite a long while now. I’m an utter lip balm addict and I’ve never had one in a blackcurrant flavour. I picked up the mint flavoured one from Birchbox a few weeks ago, with my birchbox reward points, and I love love love it so I was even more eager to get the blackcurrant flavour but it’s just been out of stock everywhere I look. And then, there it was, on this blog sale and I just Had to get it! I can’t remember how much she asked for it but I think it was something like £2.50, bargain!

To justify paying for the p+p (which I think we alllll do sometimes), I looked for another item. Most of the items I liked were gone but then I saw she was selling this, gorgeous, Essie polish in the shade ‘Penny Talk’ and it had only been used once. I think she was selling this for £3 ish and it, too, was a fantastic bargain.

Adding on the few pounds for p+p I paid a similar amount as I would have done for the Essie polish, alone, for both items plus the p+p!

Kat was really lovely and she sent my items soo soo quickly, I got them in only a couple of days even though there was a bank holiday in between. I’m definitely so pleased with my first ever blog sale experience!

    That nail polish is gorgeous, love the shade. Essie are my favourite nail varnishes! 🙂

      I only have a couple of Essie, but I just Love their shade range and would have loads if I could!

      It's such a nice shade, I wish it didn't peel after a couple of days but all metallics seem to do that 🙁 Worth it for the few days of pretty though! xx

    Wow! That blackcurrant balm is awesome! 🙂 How's the taste of that balm? I'm really so intrigued about the Essie! I hope I can find it here in the Philippines. Hihi. 😀

      It smell like candy! I love it

      And the polish is so lovely, if you want to see a photo of it on the nails I've got a nail of the day post coming up on sunday – It's very pretty

    These are great blog sale buys – have never tried a blog sale either. I particularly like the nail polish looking forward to seeing some swatches. Got some good news my news feed is back on blog so I can now read posts on the laptop. Someone tried downloading stuff on the laptop and it resulted in random surveys popping up, internet crashing and obviously blocking the news feed thing. Had a clear up on it last night and it's now working fine. Thank god for that. I have to say after two weeks without it I'm not looking for it disappearing forever.

      Oh that's good! It doesn't seem definite as to what is and isn't going so maybe there's hope, still 🙂 xx
