Beauty: The Original Factory Shop Beauty Event


It's a rare and wondrous event when a beauty post appears on the blog, it's even better when it comes with a discount code! I was recently contacted by The Original Factory Shop; if you're not familiar with the brand they are dotted all round the country (you can find your nearest store here) - and they are jam packed with family fashion, homewares, outdoor items and beauty. Which neatly brings me round to the purpose of today's post! TOFS (get me with the acronyms) launch their beauty event today with 70% off RRP on all leading Beauty Brands including top names like Clinique, Calvin Klein, Issey Miyake, Cerruti, Elizabeth Arden, L’Oreal, OPI, Mineral Makeover and Max Factor. 

So, off I toddled to my local TOFS armed with a voucher to pick up some bargains. As I'm based in Grimsby my local store is in Cleethorpes, just 10 minutes down the road and it is HUGE. 

Being the beauty novice that I am, it took me a little while to figure out what I wanted, so firstly I played it safe with OPI, a brand I'm familiar with and trust. I've been a huge fan of their nail polish for years and when I wasn't addicted to acrylics, I used their nail envy religiously. 

I guess really the same goes for Max Factor, I've used the bronzer for years, but I'm massively weary when it comes to lip products, I'm not a big fan of any lipstick/gloss etc, but I loved the natural shade of this lipfinity kit and was interested to see if it actually stood up to its 24hr claim... well lads, I had to use a toothbrush to scrub this bad boy off so it's definitely got staying power!! Yikes! To be completely honest,  I'm still not over convinced on the lip front, but that's just a personal thing. 

Finally, I went for the mineral makeover powder, the likes of which I've been dying to try for years. I don't like a lot of coverage on my face, so I'm really interested to see how this goes. I haven't tried it yet as I've got a bit of tan so I tend to just wear a blusher or bronzer. But when the tan starts to fade I can't wait to try this bad boy. 

So, now for the all important discount code. On top of the already massive discount, if you show this post to your local TOFS quoting BLOGGER10 you'll get an extra 10% off your shop. 

The beauty event starts today, 28th June and runs to 11th July - so grab yourself a bargain and happy shopping gang!
