Hey everyone, I thought I'd share my favourite bargain of last month that I completely forgot to review. I read on the lovely vipxo's blog that she found an amazing discount from a company called iHerb. I'd never heard of them previously, they're based in the States and specialise in herbs (obviously), vitamins, supplements and Real Techniques thankfully! Since I already owned quite a few, I thought I'd go for the 2 collections I didn't have, the On Location Travel Essentials, the Your Base/Flawless Foundation brush and Your Eyes/Enhanced Eyes Starter Set. Oh and a cheeky lip balm we can't get in the UK (that turned out to be horrible!!)
It came to $45.42 with the lip balm being $1.45. On your first order, you get $10 off which is already a massive bargain. Convert that into £ and I jumped at the chance. The only downside, like anything being imported it takes a while to arrive. It took about 3 weeks for me but it depends where you live. Shipping was $6 to the UK which isn't too bad considering the distance. I'd definitely use iHerb again though. I heard some people had to pay customs charges but I got lucky and didn't!
|Real Techniques Travel Essentials Brushes (L-R | Essential Foundation Brush | Domed Shadow Brush | Multi Task Brush) - RRP £20.99 Feelunique/Beauty Chamber or $17.99 on iHerb (£12.02)|
|Real Techniques Flawless Brush - RRP £8.99 Feelunique/Beauty Chamber or $7.99 on iHerb (£5.32)|
|Real Techniques Your Eyes/Enhanced Starter Set - RRP £21.99 Boots | $17.99 iHerb (£11.98)|
Overall I'm pretty impressed with iHerb and I love Real Techniques brushes but if I was to choose I'd definitely recommend the Core Collection and the Travel Essentials sets.
Have you used iHerb before? What's your favourite make-up brushes?
