I heard about BuyaPowa through several bloggers and i decided to check it out and i can see why it is so amazing! It offers you a chance to purchase a variety of items (make-up and other things too), at discounted prices. The way it works is that it starts at the RRP price and then as more people co-buy (max of 30 i think), the price goes down, sometimes down by £8 or so which is fab (+£1.95 postage) ! Also if you refer the most co-buyers you get the item for free!

Lately i remembered about the site and decided to check it out and noticed lots of products i have been lusting after for ages under the ‘coming soon’ section (Stila in the light palette and the Benefit they’re real! mascara) so i registered my interest (put down my e-mail address) so that i would be notified when they were live co-buys. I got an e-mail notifying me that the Stila Palette co-buy was live so i got very excited and joined the co-buy and got it for the best price of £18.50 (+£1.95) A steal compared to the £25 RRP.

The service provided by BuyaPowa was great, i got e-mails confirming i had placed my co-buy, and then they notified me when the price dropped to the lowest price of £18.50 and also notified me when my order was dispatched (very speedily too!). The product arrived 4 days after i won it in the co-buy (including the weekend!!) and arrived Monday 6th August in the morning.

I first heard about the Stila palette on Zoe‘s blog and after she reviewed it I knew I had to have it! And i have to say i am so happy i made this purchase and i am going to get a LOT of wear out of it. Go check out BuyaPowa for some amazing deals!

A full review of this palette will be coming up soon on A thing of Beauty from me (a guest post yay!) towards the end of September (the 25th i think)  🙂

Just a little teaser (;
