Yes, I enjoy it when I can save enough money to buy some luxury beauty items, but there are also times when I discover great, more reasonably priced products that work just as well. This month has been one of the times where I’ve picked up a few bits and pieces on the cheaper end of the scale, especially as I’ve got them with money off or on offer – bonus!
Simple Revitalising Eye Roll-On
This was half price, which was just a happy accident as I’ve been looking for something cooling for my tired eyes for a little while. I don’t just use it in the morning either, I pop a bit on whenever I need a little wake up help or my eyes are a bit puffy. It contains a bunch of vitamins, as well as cucumber, which is perfect for sensitive skin and it’s a great remedy for for your tired eye problems.
No 7 Cream Blush in Mango Sorbet
A gorgeous coral colour to give your cheeks a pop of brightness. I’ve fallen for cream blushes over the past couple of years, my most recent being Bobbi Brown, so I was looking for a suitable, but cheaper replacement and I got some money off this one. It’s super blendable and can also be layered, so it gives as much colour as you want it to. The texture is lovely and I would recommend this as a great quality, creamy blush.
Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler
This was the most expensive of the products I’ve featured here, but I’ve always heard amazing things about Bumble and Bumble and haven’t bought any hair products since getting my hair cut into a bob. This is for when you want to air dry your hair, but want more texture and body than leaving it completely alone. I haven’t given it a go yet, but from the reviews I’ve read, it can only mean good things for me and my hair. Can’t wait to give it a chance.
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Nude Collection in 43
I don’t buy lipsticks a lot, I tend to just stick with the same product for a while and then replace it with something similar, but this new nude collection from Rimmel looked to be just right for something subtle and pretty. They’re all gorgeous, but this brownish-nude was ideal for me and is perfect when you want some colour without anything over the top. I’m not a loud make-up person, so paired with some mascara and foundation coverage, I’m set to go.
Loreal Infallible Stay Fresh Foundation in Vanilla
This is a foundation with the right coverage for a not-too-heavy look while still having the consistency to even out colour and tone of the skin well. I don’t know if it has quite the staying power of more expensive brands, and the colour doesn’t quite adjust to your skin the way that others can, but it’s the perfect everyday product, especially when used with other good products.
