Things have been pretty busy lately so I’m always looking for things to keep me going. Now most times these things involve my lovely partner, close friends, a hot bath or a good book. But hey, I am a material girl so little beauty stars can also make my day 🙂
I have been paying some visits to Boots the past few weeks and I have discovered some brilliant beauty products that are also on a budget, so win-win!
Several bloggers and vloggers have been writing and talking about how good this product is so I was intrigued to try it especially given its budget price. And I have to say that I’m smitten. I love the way it matches my skin as most concealers give me a reverse-panda look and it provides great coverage without feeling too heavy.
I am so impressed with this 2 in 1 foundation/serum! I am not sure its anti-aging formula actually works (I like to think it does) but it is bloody amazing as a foundation! Its velvety coverage is flawless yet so light on the face and it smells so good! It also has an SPF15 which is always great. Real gem and will be definitely repurchasing!
Now I have to admit that this is the first eye primer I have ever used!!! I know right?
I just wasn’t sure it was an essential to my beauty regime but reading more and more about them as well as the fact that I was trekking my eye shadow all the way down to my chin after 8 hours in the office, made me decide it was about time to get one.
I had made my research and was going for an Urban Decay one. But then I tried the Collection concealer mentioned above and was so impressed. So I thought, “what if I can get an equally good product at a much better price?” As I said this is my first primer so can’t really compare it to anything else but I for one am well and truly impressed! It enhanced the pigmentation of my eye-shadows massively and they stay in place for hours! Love it.
I am very picky with my mascaras. Veeeery picky. And this has a lot to do with the fact that my eye lashes haven’t been gifted with either length or volume. Add to this an unfortunate case of cutting my own eye lashes-don’t ask!- and you’ll get where I’m coming from. So being impressed by a mascara doesn’t happen very often. In fact, the first time I tried this mascara I wasn’t very happy with it. It’s great for length OK, but what about volume? I don’t want my lashes to look like a daddy long legs! But then I tried it on again, this time being patient enough to apply the product properly and that was when the magic happened! This super star gives lovely long eye-lashes that don’t clump together, stays put for a long, long time but it’s not a nightmare to take off-always a plus.
