Budget Beauty Five

Hey Dolls :)

I recently realised that I haven't done a budget beauty post in a while and there has been a a little collection of amazing products that I have recently discovered (or re-discovered) that I wanted to share with you all...

1. Me Me Me Blush Me in Rouge

There's been so much talk surrounding these blushes that I don't need to say very much...I picked the rouge over the others as it's a little different to other blushes I have in my collection - on the cheek it creates quite a healthy, peachy glow...
It has become my perfect everyday blush!

2. N.Y.C Blushable Creme Stick in Big Apple Blush and MeMeMe Shimmy Shimmers in Pink Shimmer

These two products have created my other perfect cheek combination of the moment - a rosy pink glow. The NYC creme stick is a really light and dewy product and with a swish of mememe's shimmy shimmer (HATE the name) leaves my cheeks with a natural flush...

3. Barry M's Lip Paint 146

I absolutely love this lipstick! It's one of the brightest colours I've found that I actually feel suits me. I do find the formula of Barry M's lip paints to be a bit hit and miss - I'm happy to report that 146 isn't drying or chalky - HOORAY!

4. 17 Mirror Shine Lipstick in Bee-Hive

I am not a lover of nudes, in fact I think they make me look down right ridiculous. However, because bee-hive goes onto the lips almost like a gloss it's a really flattering and lovely lipstick to wear. I especially love pairing it with a dark smoky eye, a look I could never pull off with all other nude lipsticks I had tried!

5. Sleek Ink Pots

I much prefer gel eyeliners as opposed to liquid but I'm always a little irritated at my fluidlines only lasting a couple of months at a time before drying up. Enter the Sleek Ink Pots - where have they been all my life? Honestly, I like this equally as much my fluidlines - in fact on me the ink pots are actually longer lasting, but for a fraction of the cost!

6. Topshop Khol

Apart from the skin glow, the Kohl pencils were the only product that I really liked from the Topshop line. I have this one called Thistle which is a light lilacy-blue and a black. The pencils are so smooth and long lasting and pretty much don't budge once they're on - I completely recommend them for just £4!

I hope you've all had a good week - it was my first week back at uni and already my head is buried in restoration plays and dissertation notes GAH!

Lots of Love
