More Beauty on a budget...

Monday, February 28, 2011

Hi Girlies :)
Hope you're all having a good Monday, as you know I am a student and love make up but don't love spending too much.

17 is a make up brand which I'm sure many of you will of seen and heard of before, they're a collection in Boots and to be honest, I actually don't own that many products from the range but I couldn't resist today with the new collection which has recently been brought out.

I picked up three items from the new range as Boots have a 3 for 2 offer on at the moment which is always a winner, I picked up two blushers (obsessed) and a eyeshadow palette/set.

Firstly I want to talk about the eyeshadow, it's called Vintage Love Metallic Nudes and it is gorgeous! I love nude metallics on the eyes so this is right up my street. Also from looking at pictures, I would say this is a dupe (maybe) for Urban Decay's Naked Palette. Now I don't own Naked, if I did, I wouldn't need to look at any other eye products but from what I've seen this seems very similar! The colours are so pigmented and just gorgeous. It's limited edition though which is sad because it won't be around forever but is just wow.



Next up are the blushers- two new shades which are First Kiss which is a pale pink with a gold shimmer almost- think a more pinky Nars Orgasm and First Flush which is a gorgeous bright pink. I love blushers like this, I know some people are like woaaaah. But I love them.




With the 3 for 2 offer, it came to something like £8.40 which is really good when you are getting such lovely products. I've really been loving these budget beauty brands lately and they really have some little gems!

Hope you all have a lovely Monday night, I am going to a pub quiz ( I know going out for once) so quite looking forward to that but don't know just what to wear! Hope you all enjoy whatever you get up to :)
