Discounted Beauty | Direct Cosmetics


Hello there lovelies! I hope you're all doing really well. I thought today I would share with you a fantastic website that I recently discovered, Direct Cosmetics. I had never heard of this particular website before but I am completely thrilled to have discovered it. So what is Direct Cosmetics? Well, Direct Cosmetics is a brilliant beauty website that sells discounted beauty products from both high end and drugstore brands, ranging from makeup to skincare to fragrance. Now surely there's nothing better than that? Especially for those beauty obsessed ladies like myself. It's definitely worth taking a look through the website as it may just save yourself a few pennies. Some may even say it's rather similar to the popular Fragrance Direct. 

I was able to choose a few items from their vast range of beauty products, and so I thought I would share my thoughts on them with you.


This is a moisturiser that I had heard about several times in the world of blogging and never thought to try it out until I discovered it on the site for a measly £5 for a travel size 15ml tub. Although unboxed, it is unused and full. The Clinique Moisture Surge is a gel based, oil-free moisturiser and can be applied day or night. I've applied this overnight and woke up with lovely, supple skin and it is not at all heavy on the skin which is something I loathe in a moisturiser. 


Admittedly lip products are my weakness, lip crayons in particular. In fact I already have quite a collection but I have never tried the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains before so I decided to choose two of the shades from the range, Cherish and Lovesick. They are both beautiful pink shades, Lovesick being the deepest pink and Cherish, almost a light, baby pink shade. The Revlon Balm Stains are incredibly pigmented, especially 'Lovesick' but I find Cherish to be ever so slightly lighter. They glide onto the lips smoothly, leave a beautiful sheen and feel very nourishing. At £1.99 it's an incredible saving of £6.00 as they retail for £7.99 in local Boots and Superdrug stores. Unfortunately though, these are the only shades that they stock from the Just Bitten range.


I have always been intriqued by Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream and so thought now would be the perfect time to test it out, especially as it's approached that time of the year again. I have been suffering from the dreaded dry, cracked lips and I do wish I could say positive things about it but I was sadly left disappointed. It sat on my lips overnight, didn't sink in and left a film on my lips which of course doesn't look very attractive.

I am a bath person through and through and I especially love a bubble bath. The Agent Provocateur Bubble Luscious unfortunately doesn't leave the bath as 'bubbly' as I would've liked. I poured quite a bit of the bubble bath underneath running water and within minutes the bubbles had disappeared. Rather disappointing to say the least but the scent is rather lovely and leaves my skin feeling soft.


Have you purchased anything from Direct Cosmetics?
