Bargain shopping with MUA to make Christmas a little more glamourous

At 5am this morning, still wide awake and trying desperately to fall off to sleep, I had an epiphany. I could make Christmas crackers and fill them with beauty products to add a bit of glamour to this year's Christmas dinner! I'm not sure why the idea never occurred to me sooner! 

When I awoke, I had another brain wave: to have a browse of MUA's website. I've heard so many good things about this brand, as every blogger and their pampered pooch is raving about them. I was thoroughly impressed with the first product I tried not so long ago, a navy nail polish, so it seemed like the right place to start looking for good products that wouldn't bankrupt me.

 The first image I stumbled upon? MUA are currently offering 35% off all orders of £10 and over, with free delivery, with the code MUA35 until the 23rd of November! Wahey!

I instantly knew what I was about to do... I swiftly made a bee line for their £1 nail polishes and added seven to my basket, before adding three eyeshadows to make up the order. I was only intending to buy four things for my Mum, my two sisters, and I, but for that price I really couldn't stop there.

These are the products I've just purchased...

All of these polishes and shadows retail for the bargain price of £1! Now I love my make up and am no stranger to spending upwards of £10 on one product, so the fact that all this came to just £10 had me gawping at the screen with my mouth agape. Once I'd added the promotion code and brought the total down to an even purse-friendlier £6.50, my eyes almost popped out of their sockets. That's right, this little lot came to just £6.50! £6.50 for ten beauty products including delivery? Amazing!

Some of the nail polishes will go in to crackers with some chocolates, and I'll probably keep a polish or two and the eye shadows to try myself. Now I just need to think of something to add to a cracker that will appeal to my Dad...

I'll make sure to create a post when I put the crackers together, if you lovely lot would like me to? I think I may also put together another post on some of the MUA cosmetics that have caught my eye.

Have you shopped with MUA before?

Do you make/fill your own Christmas crackers, and have you ever created a beauty cracker before?
