The Highstreet Beauty Event You Can't Miss

Before I started uni, The Original Factory Shop was my main port of call for buying cheap (and super cute) homeware but the more I shopped there, the more my attention was swayed towards their beauty section. They always had so many big name brands but at amazing prices. My shopping trips soon went from excursions to buy storage and new pens to delving into the depths of the nail varnish counter to find the best shades at the best prices. And I once found a navy and purple shimmery Calvin Klein nail varnish there which I still own and use to this day so I really am testament to the greatness of The Original Factory Shop's beauty section. So, when they got in touch to tell me about their beauty event and all the great deals to be had, I knew I had to be a part of it. The lovely people at TOFS sent out a package full of goodies and a catalogue of everything they are currently stocking - including high end fragrances and best selling highstreet makeup products all at reasonable prices.

The products sent to me were by a brand called DDM Cosmetics which I hadn't heard of before so I was really intrigued by what they had to offer.

Each item came with instructions on how to use which were very useful as some of the products were quite different from my usual go-tos. The mascara* had two separate applicators. One was a usual mascara and the other was a brush with which you apply fibres to your lashes. The mascara wets the lashes, the fibres stick to the lashes making them look longer and thicker, and the mascara then seals the fibres to the lashes. I wore this for a whole day out in the sun and I found that the fibres stayed put well and didn't crumble onto my face or into my eyes which I was worried about. My eyelashes did look longer and I would definitely continue using this product - especially for events and nights out where I want to look like I am wearing falsies but don't want the hassle of actually applying them.

I don't usually use powder but this Mineral Makeover Powder* has been a godsend in the heatwave. The coloured dots are colour correction dots. I can't really vouch for how well they work as I put this on over foundation but I can vouch for the fact that this is a lightweight foundation that doesn't make your foundation go cakey which is a problem I have had with so many powders before.

The HD Fibre Brow* is the one thing I wasn't so sure on but that is probably because I am a eyebrow powder girl through and through. This brow product has the same premise as the mascara in that it uses fibres to make your brows look thicker and better. Personally, I found that my brows looked too intense after using this but, as I said, I am only used to using eyebrow powder.

Overall, I will definitely be popping into The Original Factory Shop to check out there deals (and to stock up on perfume). And you can get a discount online with the code BLOGGER10
