    Where to buy perfume samples

    The perfume industry is huge and continues to grow. One of the great things about buying a new fragrance is the samples that are available to try before you buy.

    We’ve all done it, purchased a perfume because it smells nice on someone else or the celebrity endorser behind the bottle is one of our favourite actors.

    We are still very much influenced on our purchases when it comes to fragrances.

    There are lots of places where they either offer free samples or samples at a small cost so that you can try a fragrance before you commit to buying the bottle.

    A wonderful idea that saves you money on buying a perfume that you potentially may never wear.

    Everyone’s skin is different so each individual fragrance will smell unique on your own skin.

    Many a time we have friends, family or perhaps even strangers that will comment on our chosen fragrance.

    They like the scent of it and may go as far as buying the bottle themselves, only to find it doesn’t smell the same on their skin.

    Another expensive bottle of celebrity perfume sits in the wardrobe or on the dressing table.

    When I was younger, I loved going into the perfume stores with my late mum to get a collection of perfume samples.

    It was a cheap way of having a fragrance every day.

    Perfume samples nowadays can be used for so many ideas.

     

    Wedding favours

    Are you getting married?

    Have you ever considered purchasing a selection of perfume samples to give to your guests?

    They’ll love this idea.

    Using perfume samples as wedding favours has become very popular over the last few years and doesn’t have to cost a fortune either.

    A great way to say thank you to your wedding guests for attending your special day by giving them a selection of perfume/aftershave samples at the table.

    An extra gift

    Another idea for using perfume samples is to add a small gift to a birthday or Christmas present.

    Particularly if you find out what fragrance the person likes such as floral, woody, citrus, oriental etc.

    You could then choose those fragrance notes as an extra gift to pop inside their present.

    Be creative with your samples

     

    There are several things you can do with your perfume samples if you don’t want to wear them or give them away.
    Here’s a few ideas.
    The potpourri that’s been sitting on your kitchen windowsill and has now lost it’s scent can be easily revived with sprinkling drops of your perfume sample on top.

    Sprinkle some perfume onto your potpourri for a delicate scent in the home
    Take a sample abroad for your holidays. When the airport limits the amount of liquid we can take, a sample bottle is the perfect solution and you can take a few different scents with you too.
    Add a sample bottle to a water spray with a little water and spray your car seats gently to give them a new scent when you next get back in for a drive.
    A great idea for smelly kitchen bins is to add some drops to a couple of cotton balls and pop in the bottom of your bin before your liner goes in.
    Drawer liners keep our clothes smelling fresh so why not add a little potpourri into a small pouch bag.
    Add a few drops of your sample perfume to add a gorgeous fragrance the next time you reach for your smalls.

     

     

    If you are a user of the tumble dryer during the winter months and usually use scented sheets, why not create your own.

    Add several drops of perfume onto a damp handkerchief and pop it in the dryer. Your wet clothes will come out smelling fresh, clean, scented and dry.

     

    Where to buy perfume samples

    At FM WORLD, perfume samples can be purchased between 40p ( PURE and PURE ROYAL) and £1.50 (UTIQUE) per sample.
    All of our fragrances bar the Utique range, are inspired by celebrity perfumes.
    If, for example, your favourite perfume is La Vie Est Belle by Lancôme, a gorgeous floral and sweet scent, you can purchase a sample of FM 413 which has very similar notes to this celebrity perfume and won’t cost you more than £18.
    You can read our review on this fragrance here.

    A popular choice of fragrance

    Thousands of men and women currently wear FM fragrances as they are so popular, long-lasting and affordable. The perfect combination.
    We all have a different way of thinking when purchasing products. There are many that prefer to buy the designer range because of the celebrity endorser behind that product.
    Needless to say, you do pay a percentage towards the packaging, the designer bottle, the celebrity endorser and the TV advert that goes alongside it.
    FM fragrances were created to give quality perfume that lasts longer than the celebrity perfumes and are affordable for any budget.
    They also created perfume where you don’t pay for the above external factors.
    They all contain 20% or 30% pure perfume oil. This means that your fragrance will last around eight hours if you are using 20% perfume and even longer if you are buying a 30% perfume oil fragrance.

    Quality samples, quality perfumes

    Buyers want to pay for quality and at FM they do just that.
    With so many fragrances to choose from, over 200 in fact, we really are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing one of our favourites.
    We don’t need to spend £80-£100 on designer fragrance when we can buy a more affordable bottle that has very similar notes.
    So similar in fact that they smell almost identical.

    Pure and Pure Royal range

    Having such a large selection to choose from, the PURE and PURE ROYAL range samples measure as 1.4ml sample bottles.

    The applicator is attached to the lid which is a plastic wand to apply the sample to your skin.

     

    The paper sample holders can be bought separately for 80 pence each if you require that extra little touch.

    Utique range

    With FM WORLD’s Utique range, there are twelve scents that have been created with a selection of delightful fragrance notes.
    Eight of those fragrances ( Black, Gold, Ruby, Bubble, Ambre Royal, Ambergris, Malachite) sit in the oriental family so you will have scents such as floral, woody, spicy, vanilla and ambergris notes.
    Three of the scents ( Muffin, Flamingo, Violet Oud) sit in the flower family so you will have fruity, oriental, citrus, woody and water notes.
    The last scent ( Sexy Cashmere) sits in the wood family group with notes of floral, fruit and oriental.
    All the perfumes in the Utique range are unisex and contain 20% perfume.
    Related post: unisex perfumes.
    They measure as 2ml samples and come with their own paper sample holder. Another elegant way to give as a gift and this collection has a spray top for easy application.

    FM perfume no.413 review

    FM perfume no.413 review

    Have you tried Fm World’s fragrances yet?

    They believe in simplicity when it comes to packaging and style of bottles and FM 413 is no exception.

     

     

     

     

    As we head into the spring and are perhaps looking for a fragrance that sits more in the oriental/fruity family, FM are not short of choice.

    No. 413 has been a very popular scent over the past few years as its fragrance notes are very similar to those of La Vie Est Belle by Lancôme.

     

     

    Fragrance notes:

    Head: blackcurrant, pear

    Heart: iris, jasmine, orange blossom

    Base: chocolate pralines, patchouli, vanilla

     

    This fragrance gives a sense of sweetness and flirtatious vibes and a very popular scent to own.

    What’s great about this fragrance is that it also comes in a PHEROMONE perfume, INTENSE perfume ( which contains 30% perfume oil) , a fragrance candle, reed diffuser, a wardrobe fragrance and wax melts to name a few.

     

     

    It’s wonderful to find a scent that can be extended into the home to carry the beautiful spring/summer notes through every room.

    So what makes this fragrance one of FM’s most popular ?

    Many women love the smell of fruits and deep scents such as vanilla and patchouli.

    The Lancôme perfume, which was launched in 2012 and advertised by the beautiful Julia Roberts, has very similar fragrance notes.

    When we see celebrity’s endorsing perfumes, it encourages us to try that scent to give a sense of feeling and looking just as gorgeous as our idols.

    The only missing ingredient from FM413 is Tonka Bean. If you were to try a sample of FM 413, the smell will be almost identical.

    Whilst FM create their very own fragrances, they do use the same perfume oil as the designer fragrances which are created by DROM in Germany.

     

    You can read the story of DROM here.

     

    We already know that no one sees the packaging or fancy bottle when we purchase designer scents and they can leave a huge dent in the purse/wallet, yet many are still hung up on the idea of owning expensive brands.

     

    FM is a cruelty -free fragrance company and one that stands out from the rest not only for being affordable but for also creating long-lasting fragrances.

     

    As they have no celebrity endorsers or TV adverts, they can keep the cost down and therefore fans of the fragrances can indeed buy several bottles of their favourite perfumes.

    Having tried several and having a large selection of my own perfumes over the years, I have to say that no.413 is one of my favourites.

    It’s also a favourite for one of my customers!

     

    FM no.413 perfume review

     

    It’s suitable for all seasons as it has an oriental feel for wearing during the winter but also a selection of fruity notes that pop through to give a spring/summer vibe.

    Many women who currently wear La Vie Est Belle have said that they can’t tell the difference between their own designer bottled scent and that of FM 413.

    It’s an ideal scent to wear during the daytime in the office or out for a lunch date with friends. If you fancy a stronger version for an evening there is the option of the intense version too. How many designer fragrances give us that option ?

     

     

    FM 413 is a long-lasting fragrance without a doubt and will certainly get you receiving compliments as I do, when wearing it.

    Some will compare the Federico Mahora fragrance to that of La Vie Est Belle without understanding that this fragrance isn’t supposed to be a replica for the designer scent.

    In fact, none of the Fm perfumes should be compared to the designer scents because they are their own individual brand and company.

    Read my article about why buying cheap perfume will cost more

    If you love sweet and long-lasting scents then FM no.413 is definitely worth trying. Order your sample here.

    Some wearers have even noticed this particular scent lingers on clothing the following day after being sprayed.

     

    Another great reason to purchase if you want your clothes smelling gorgeous without having to wash them after the first wear.

    Due to its very fruity and oriental notes, this perfume only requires a few sprays as it is instantly noticeable.

    It will last around 6-8 hours and is one of the fragrances that does linger more than others so less is definitely more with this bottle.

    I love the idea that this bottle is designed with such simplicity that it fits perfectly inside a handbag if you did want to re apply throughout the day.

  • Perfumes,  Shopping,  The cost of perfume

    Buying cheap perfume will cost more

    Buying cheap perfume will cost more in the long run so why do people opt for this as an alternative ?

    Whenever we hear the word designer, we instantly think of expensive brands, celebrities and quality products.

    Whether it’s a clothing range, cosmetics, shoes or perfume.

    We do get what we pay for although many would agree that some designer  brands are overpriced.

    Customers can be left feeling ripped off when they see a huge price tag that perhaps doesn’t justify the item being purchased.

    We’ve all been there. A spot of retail therapy works wonders to lift the mood but at what cost ?

    Men and women love to shop, especially if they know what they are intending to buy. Whilst women are more prone to window-shopping more than men, buying something new really can lift the mood.

    Some may say buying impulsively can have the opposite effect and leave you with the panic of overspending and falling into the dept hole. Especially if one’s purchase is on the more expensive side.

    Buying cheap perfume will cost more
    No one wants to see their money wasted

     

    It’s important to balance the two.

    Personally, I’m not a big lover of shopping, aimlessly walking around the shops in the hope that something will catch my eye.

    I prefer a more purposeful visit, with the intention of knowing exactly what I am shopping for.

    My sister and late mother on the other hand would shop till they dropped!

    We all have the idea of shopping and saving at the same time, so it’s very much done with the intention of buying more for our money. That makes sense.

     

    Looking for cheaper options

    There will be certain products on the market that this will work in our favour.

    Clothes for instance, can be bought much cheaper and some will still last just as long and come out of the wash the same size as they went in!

    What about products such as cosmetics ?

    These too can be bought cheaper but if you are prone to sensitive skin, purchasing a more expensive brand will always be the better option to avoid skin allergies.

    When it comes to perfumes, we all know the price we pay to have a designer bottle of Chanel in our possession.

    An iconic perfume

     

    Chanel perfume was also the most popular and highest ranked brand for women in the UK in 2020, with an estimated 4.9million women enjoying its unique fragrance. That’s a huge amount of sales for just one designer bottle.

    So what about when shops sell copies of the designer perfumes at a fraction of the price?

    We already know that we can buy the real thing at the Duty Free and they will often be a little cheaper.

    A cheeky purchase for the up coming holiday that we all look forward to having. Almost obligatory to visit one too, before boarding the plane.

    Some wait until this time to purchase their favourite or ask their family member/friend to pick one up on their way through or on the plane because the price is a little lower.

     

    Copies of our favourite perfumes

     

    Recently, Poundland have released a selection of fragrances, all in the same packaging and bottles as the designer brands, but with a huge difference.

    The price tag.

     

    Buying cheap perfume will cost more
    Savings on perfume isn’t always the best option

    For as little as £1, customers can purchase a copy of their favourite bottle but at what cost ?

    We’re all bargain hunters inside. Even those who can afford the real thing more than some. Everyone loves a saving. It leaves more money and opportunity to spend the rest on something else.

    A walk into Poundland is everyone’s idea of the perfect shop.

     

    A shop that everyone loves for the fact that they can purchase household products, cosmetics, birthday cards and food for a bargain price.

    Carry on walking through and we now see a display of designer fragrances from such names as Chanel, Creed, Carolina Herrera and Paco Rabanne. Or are they ?

    We all know that Poundland is just that, a pound shop. A place that almost seems too good to be true when we can purchase hand wash or toothpaste for just £1.

    Some would argue that such items can be bought cheaper from the big stores such as Asda and Sainsbury’s. Indeed, they can so it’s important to be savvy when we shop.

    So what about buying your favourite perfume for £1? A fragrance such as Paco Rabanne’s Lady Million, would leave your purse short of around £83 for the real thing. Can it really be bought for £1 instead?

    Of course, we all love to save money but at what cost?

    Perfume and beauty resources

    Buying cheap perfume will cost more

    On the first initial spray we are surprised by the similarity in fragrance notes but the real key is how long will the scent last?

    Lady Million is a very popular fragrance and the third most favourite scent for women.

    Containing notes of Raspberry, Jasmine, Patchouli and Amber to name a few, this perfume scent is instantly noticed with its first spray.

    The packaging alone suggests that this isn’t the real deal. Poundland cleverly use slightly different names for their duped fragrances. This allows them to sell a product that has similar scents to the real perfumes.

    Trying to sell a fake product off as the real thing is counterfeit.

    So Lady Million is labeled as Queen in Million and although the design of bottles may be similar, companies do change their bottles so they are not identical to the real item.

     

    A clever marketing strategy

    We already know that purchasing a bottle for £1 won’t give us a designer brand in our shopping basket.

    Buying cheap perfume will cost more

    Many will be on a shopping budget so buying such an affordable fragrance will seem very appealing.

    What about the longevity though?

    Whilst it’s a great purchase to buy a similar bottle to one of our favourites at a fraction of the cost, is it really worth it ?

    Cheaper alternatives

    A spray of a cheaper alternative will save money for other things for sure but at what cost ?

    Imagine you have picked up a dupe bottle of Black Opium by Yves St Laurent which is named as Black Dust in Poundland.

    A great bottle and packaging and definitely inspired by the real designer perfume, it doesn’t look out of place on the shelf.

    A pleasant smell, just like Black Opium, with a sweet scent but instantly too overpowering with its sweetness.

    The depth that Black Opium carries wasn’t a match though for this alternative.

    When we use perfume, we apply in the morning, preferably on clean, moisturized skin so that we get the most out of the fragrance. 

    Purchasing a Poundland alternative will leave you using it a more of a body spray as the initial first spray was gone within minutes. No one wants to keep reapplying their scent throughout the day just to make it last.

    Speaking of making a perfume last, this bottle really won’t last very long if it’s constantly needs reapplying throughout the day.

    The chances of anyone around you noticing the whiff of scent will be very slim too unless they are standing right beside you when you spray.

    So the £1 bottle of fragrance that initially saved you a fair amount of money, will eventually cost you more. You will constantly be spending money on replacing the bottle that’s only lasted a week!

    Purchasing for the younger generation would be the only reason to buy a £1 fragrance. They don’t need overpowering scents to make an impression and will still feel like they are a part of the grown up world with a bottle of designer spritz.

    If buying a dupe bottle seems to be the only option to owning a scent that’s similar to your favourite designer perfume, there is another option.

    At FM World, we sell designer inspired fragrances.

  • Father’s Day,  Gifts

    Father’s Day gifts

    It’s not just mums who have a special day to celebrate. What about Father’s Day?

    It’s just as important a day for many to celebrate and a day for children to show their love for their dad. Also a day for partners to celebrate the father to their children and appreciate them for all that they do.

    Father’s Day gifts
    Dad loves to be spoilt too

     

     

    Fathers carry a very different role when it comes to parenting. Whist the mothers are seen as the first connection and admiration from day one, the men will be the pillar of strength and the disciplinary figure when they come home from work.

    Sometimes fathers don’t get so much of a look in as much as the mums so it’s important to show them just as much love.

    All fathers deserve a celebration of fatherhood and the unique bond they have with their children.

    The commercial side of such celebrations sees companies looking for any excuse to push sales.

    They will always find a reason to give gifts not just for birthdays, Valentine’s and Christmas. It gives the card and gift shops a major boom.

     

    In the UK, Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June and begun back in the early 20th century.

    Founded in the USA, many countries, including the UK, now celebrate this day as they do Mother’s Day.

    Although it wasn’t as popular as other dates, it soon became commercialized in the same way.

    Showing the love with a gift

    It’s just as important to show the dads how much they are appreciated and giving cards and gifts is now a tradition every year, even though it’s not classed as an official holiday.

    It can be more difficult to find something to buy for men and there never appears to be as large a choice on the market as there is for women.

    When children are small and attending school, their teachers will get them to make a special hand made gift to take home to dad. A card with their own writing inside and their own personal drawing to show how much they love their Fathers.

    Father’s Day gifts
    Dad’s play an important role in our lives

     

    Dads love to have something that they can keep.

    As we get older, we start to look further afield for gifts, whist still aiming for uniqueness.

    Every year, my step-dad had a new wallet or a packet of handkerchiefs with his initial embroidered into the corner of the material.

    He seemed to receive the same gift every year from me as I struggled to find something for a dad that had everything !

    Traditional gifts included socks and pants as well as something to go towards their favourite hobby such as golf.

    These days, there is such a variety of gifts suitable for men. Even the fussy ones!

    Father’s Day gifts

    Let’s break away from the traditional gifts and take a look at other, every day products that dads will love.

    Aftershave

    It goes without saying that most men love an aftershave.

    The fresh, crisp fragrance to start the working day or a spritz of their favourite cologne for a night out is a great gift to give dad.

    Men tend not to wear a scent as much as women due to their working environments but this makes it even more special to treat dad with his favourite spray and what better way than an affordable fragrance from FM World.

    Father’s Day gifts
    A selection of aftershave, body spray, perfume stick and perfume spray for men

    Body wash

     

    Every dad loves body wash and when there is an option to buy one that compliments their aftershave, even better!

    Men like to layer their scents so a body wash that leaves the skin feeling fresh with a subtle scent works well with a spray of their favourite fragrance.

    Room diffuser

    If dad works at home or in the office, why not treat him to a scented room diffuser? These have become very popular over the past few years and what better way to say ‘I love you dad’ than with a sleek diffuser fragrance that matches his personality.

    Home room fragrances

    Car freshener

    As we know, men love their cars far more than women!

    We see it as a means of getting from A to B but for the male motor enthusiast, it’s a whole new ballgame.

    Some car fragrances can be very overpowering as soon as you sit in the car so FM World have created ones that compliment a selection of the men fragrances to leave a subtle and comfortable scent in the car for approximately 2 months.

    Treat dad to an affordable car freshener to give a hint of fragrance as he drives to work.

    Wardrobe freshener

     

    Men love their clothes just as much as their cars and if your dad wears a suit or smart clothes to go to work, having a wardrobe freshener to keep their linen smelling fresh works a treat.

    These hangers are the perfect shape to hook over the wardrobe pole and there is also a unisex option if dad has to share wardrobe space with mum.
    Let’s face it ladies, we do need far more space for our clothes than the men! These little gems will last approximately 3 months and are unlimited to where you can hang them.
    Father’s Day gifts
    Every wardrobe deserves a fragrance

    Hair products

     

    Whilst it’s more often than not that women spend far more on their hair and hair products than the men, there are dads out there who still like to use great products too.

    No point in looking smart wearing a classic suit and dads hair is looking dry and unkempt.

    Perfume pheromones. What are they?

     

    I’ll be honest. I’d  never actually heard of perfume pheromones until later on in life.

    Never understood what they were for, what was the purpose but it does seem to be more common nowadays so let’s look into what perfume pheromones really are.

    Since the beginning of the 1920’s and the story of Chanel No.5 perfume history back in 1921 perfume fragrances have skyrocketed and not just for women but men as well.

    Perfumes  have always been unique to all of us.

    We all wear different fragrances and even if we do wear the same as our sister/mother.

    The chances are the fragrance will smell completely different and unique.

    That’s just the way it is.We all have our own scent and therefore every perfume will smell different on you compare to someone else.

    Pheromones- what are they ?

     

    Perfume pheromones

    Pheromones are chemical substances which are naturally produced and secreted by insects and animals, through sweat, urine and breath.

    This in turn triggers sexual arousal in their respective species.

    Animals and insects secrete hormones to show their presence and to notify others of their territorial pheromones.

    Our very own scent is one of the things that people are attracted to.

    We all have our own natural body scent so a pheromone fragrance will enhance that.

    What’s inside a bottle of pheromone ?

    Inside a bottle of pheromone perfume there will be animal or plant pheromones used as the fundamental ingredients in developing a fragrance.

    So what happens is there is a scientific method of capturing the sexual pheromones.

    Two of the most common pheromones are Musk and Ambergris.

    Pheromone perfumes contain human pheromones, which helps to attract the opposite sex around you.

    They work in unison on our own hormones to give off a scent that attracts others.

    Pheromone perfume is can be male and female.

    Many of today’s pheromone perfumes contain Musk and Ambergris which is known to heighten the scenes of comfort and joy.

    Here at FM, we have our own collection of pheromones in our shop.

    Fm perfume no.18 review

    Fm perfume no.18 review.

    Having been a wearer of FM perfumes including our FM perfume no.18 for the past 7 years, I loved the idea that I could buy designer inspired fragrances at a fraction of the cost.

    Being a more affordable option allowed me to buy several of my favourites so that I could choose which one I wanted to wear on a particular day.

    It’s great to have the option to choose which one you are going to wear by what your plans are for that day, although there is nothing wring with wearing a signature fragrance.

    FM perfumes range in PURE, INTENSE and PHEROMONES so this gives the buyer a bit more freedom when it comes to choosing which kind to wear.

    An inteview, night out with the girls or even a date night deserves a special fragrance.

    Each perfume category has a different strength.

    The PURE collection and PHEROMONE collection consist of 20% perfume oil and the INTENSE range will consist of 30% perfume.

    The reason for different strengths

    If you are looking for a daytime scent that lasts you or the majority of your day, then the PURE perfume fits the bill.

    For those who are looking for a scent that lasts the day and beyond, then the INTENSE selection is suitable. This one has 30% pure perfume so you really do get longevity with this one.

    Anyone who likes a scent that appeals to the opposite sex, then a PHEROMONE is the perfect bottle to buy.

    FM World have a variety of pheromone scents to choose from in the online shop.

    Fm perfume no.18 is part of the Chypre family which gives a sensual and tempting allure of radiance.

    If you happen to be a lover of Chanel and one of their popular fragrances, Coco Mademoiselle, then fm perfume no.18 will bring the sweetness and fruity notes in the same way.

    FM perfumes are inspired by the designers.

    They use the same fragrance oil as that of the designers.

    So you will find that no.18 will smell very similar if not identical to that of Chanel, Coco Mademoiselle.

    FM perfume no.18 Review

    It’s clear that many still compare Fm perfumes to designers.

    Therefore there is disappointment when they are led to believe that they will experience an identical fragrance from this product.

    When no.18 doesn’t live up to their expectations as a comparison to the designer bottle, we begin to question why not.

    There will of course be many factors into why the same fragrance doesn’t last as long on some people’s skin as others.

    There is also the factor of skin preparation before a perfume bottle is sprayed. Long lasting fragrances

    For the price you pay with FM perfumes, you certainly do get value for money.

    If money is no object and you can afford to buy the top designers, then there certainly isn’t anything wrong with that.

    Remember to store your bottles correctly for longer lasting fragrances.

    If you love designer scents but the price tag is something that puts you off purchasing, then taking a look at FM fragrances is definitely the way to go.

     

    When we have celebrities such as Stacey Solomon using FM fragrances, we know we can trust their selection of perfumes.

    Stacey has often posted about FM perfumes on her Instagram feed and you can see her every own bottle of FM18 sitting on the right hand shelf in her bedroom.

    Beauty and perfumes

    Beauty and perfumes have always gone together. Like hand and glove. Dating back to around 7000BC.

    The beauty and the perfume industry has and will always be huge all over the world.

    Since the creation of Chanel , the perfume industry has been phenomenal.

    Sales are consistent, even more so when Christmas approaches as loved ones dash around the shops and search online to purchase a bottle of their favourite perfume.

    Beauty and Perfumes

    Perfume and make up have often been a hard gift to purchase for someone else. Everyone likes different types and scents.

    When it comes to friends/family, and what they like in fragrances and cosmetics,it is very much a personal choice.

    With such a variety of make up and fragrances, it can be a minefield trying to find the perfect gift and keep it a secret. Not so easy if we have to ask what product they like best.

    It’s great when mum/sister/friend has a perfume that they consistently wear and won’t try anything else. We buy the same again. No disappointment on either side.

    Most will head online these days for such purchases, like Ebay.

    Flawless skin 

    It’s quick, easy and often more affordable than buying from the stores.

    So what happens when someone buys a fragrance that they don’t like ? Do they  wear it anyway or leave it in the draw to eventually expire ?

    I’ve left it in my bedroom cupboard when I’ve had a perfume that doesn’t suit.

     

    Cosmetics

    The same could go for make up.

    It’s tempting to purchase a new eye shadow palette with the colours of the rainbow.

    If purchasing for someone who either doesn’t wear much make up or prefers more subtle colours, then it’s a waste of money. No one likes to waste money.

    Once again the ‘perfect’ gift gets put away in the drawer.

    One of the great things about such purchases these days is that with perfume, we can purchase small samples before we buy a big 50ml bottle.

    But what about when it comes to make up?

    Fortunately, there are several companies, including FM Cosmetics  where we can buy single individual pots and wear your favourite.

    A great idea that saves us money on buying a palette that has just two or three of our favourite colours and the rest of the palette gets left untouched.

    Everyone loves to save money and companies certainly do have the customers interests at heart when they created cosmetics and perfumes.

    When make up is unique to every woman, they want to be able to give them the opportunity to use all of their cosmetic item that they have.

    Growing up with make up

    As a youngster, i had a make up bag that consisted of every eyeshadow, lipgloss and mascara and we do tend to have ur favourites that we go back to.

    If we emptied our make up bag on the table and actually picked our the items we use on a regular basis, there would be almost half of the products that were either never used.

    Some may have been a favourite but got replaced with the latest lipstick or blusher.
