During the lockdown I have been looking at some high end beauty products on eBay auctions and have got some good bargains.  I have “won” a Charlotte Tilbury unused lip gloss for a third of the usual price but my favourite bargains are Louboutin nail polish.  I got 2 for £15 which may seem a lot but they are £41 each  :# online.  I have just got a gorgeous emerald green one for £5.  Obviously green nails arent everyone’s choice

The bottles they come in are stunning, I display mine as decorative pieces, even my husband said “wow” which is high praise coming from him.

I expect when the Covid restrictions are normal I’ll probably go back to buying things from TKMaxx, OPI for £3.

I don’t wear a lot of make up but am a bit of a “nail hound”

    That's not a bottle - that's a lethal weapon. ;)

    I have bought many beauty products from eBay over the years.  Only ever received one fake knew it was straight away, got my money refunded no problem.
    I buy niche and vintage perfumes, high-end brands.
    The last thing I bought Kilian lipstick rrp £41 I got for £18.

    I have bought quite a bit of make-up and beauty products, just recently from ebay.  I am very pleased with all of them . All cost less than buying them individually .

    You're absolutely right and my inner conspiracy theorist is already imagining reading a newspaper article about a couple who tripped and fatally injured themselves.  :o
