My Budget Beauty Collection


budget makeup

I admit I have always had bad opinion on cheaper make up. I'm not talking about your high street brands like Revlon, Seventeen, Maybelline or L'Oreal but I'm talking about your ridiculously cheap brands like Natural Collection, MUA or Makeup Revolution. In my mind they were like the "kiddie" makeup brands for...well...kids!! Thus I thought it would be inappropriate for a 25 year old woman to purchase such inferior brands for the fear of being mocked and laughed at. However since starting my blog back up and reading various different posts about budget beauty brands my curiosity got the best of me. I went into Superdrug and Wilko's to pick a few highly rated products.

From Superdrug I got the MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter in B150D (there appears to be no actual name for the shade). I do think it is great for the money but I find that it is a little too glittery and it doesn't blend out nicely either (perhaps I have been too pampered with the Charlotte Tilbury Highlighter!). I will still use it but I don't think I will repurchase it.
Next is Essence Blush Up! in 10 Heat Wave. Now I really like this product! It's perfect for the summer and the ombre effect on the blush gives the appearance of looking so much more expensive than it is. It is highly pigmented so you have to be very light handed with your brush. I'm excited to try a few more things from this brand!

You may remember these from My Top 5 Favourite Summer Lipsticks where I raved about the Collection Cream Puff in Fairy Cake. I love these lip products! Along with Fairy Cake I also have it in Cotton Candy. I don't want to go into too much detail as you can read up on it here but they are soft, smell incredible and last well on the lips. I just wished they did more colours!

I think I may have to discover more budget beauty items! Do you have any recommendations?!
