The Beauty Sales Edit

I can’t say I’m a huge sales lover. I have been known to sharpen my elbows and fight to the frontline with the best of them in previous years but more often than not I’d end up with less than necessary buys: a lurid shade of eyeshadow that I’d never use, purchased in the haze of 50% discount and a piece of clothing that was either too short, tight or damn right horrendous for me to ever wear again. So I now treat it as more of a spectator sport and tend to stick to browsing online from the comfort of my sofa and the warmth of a blanket with a slightly more focused mind. While everyone in the house was deep in slumber last night I stumbled across some pretty darn good deals on the Nykaa sale, an order was made (oh gawd) and the idea for this post was birthed. Instead of keeping my bargain basement deals to my own checkout basket in the spirit of Valentine’s I thought I’d share, so here are my top picks that I discovered in my bleary eyed browsing sesh…

Nykaa is rather rocking – with treats from Schwarzkopf, La Roche Posay and Maybelline all making the cut. My favourites are the Schwarzkopf Bonacure Repair Rescue Shampoo, was Rs.750 now Rs.450, link here and The Body Shop Aloe Gentle Facial Wash, was Rs.695 now Rs.556, link here. Although I already own the two best deals I found they are both things I adore – Soulflower Argan Carrier Oil – Coldpressed, was Rs.800 now Rs.560, link here, this is the only face oil I really use and then the much hyped and much loved Maybelline Volum’ Express Falsies Mascara – Waterproof, was Rs.500 now Rs.450, link here. Two big possibility purchases, Lakme 9 To 5 Matte Lip Color, was Rs.400 now Rs.315, link here and L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick, was Rs.899 now Rs.719, link here.

Some of these bits and bobs are already winging their way into the post to me as we speak (a haul post will be a dunzo as soon as they arrive), others I threw in as G&M pre-approved bargains; so sit back, relax, get comfortable (blanket: optional) and get clicking. Simples.
