Budget Make Up Haul- The Verdict

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Hey lovelies,

Hope you've all had a great Thursday, been another gorgeous day and again I have bypassed uni work for sunbathing. Love how I prioritise tanning over uni work.

So yesterday's post  I mentioned the budget beauty haul I had bought from Boots, taking full advantage for the 3 for 2 offer. However with make up you can never tell how good it is until you've worn it.

So today I tried all four items out & here is my verdict on them.



First up, The Good: Collection 2000 Big Fat Fake mascara- I've heard alot about this mascara on various beauty blogs so for £4.99 I thought it was worth a try! I can say that it is amazing! It has a big brush which coats the lashes and makes them super long. Very, very impressed with this!! Bourjois Blush Rose D'or, this is gorgeous, a really lovely girly pink and the packaging gives it an advantage aswell!! Maybelline Superstay 24 hour concealer, this is the second time I've repurchased this, it's great, does what it says on the tin, conceals and lasts all day!

Now the disappointment, I knew this would be a bit of a risk being only £2.99 but this little eye palette wasn't the best. When I swatched it in store it came out metallic but when I put it on this morning it seemed more matte. Hmm I don't know, I'll keep trying with it and get back to you.


FOTD using all four products mentioned.

All in all thumbs up, and take advantage of the 3 for 2 offer, as I'm writing this my windows are wide open and I actually thought a seagull was about to fly in. Pheeew that was a scary moment.

Now finally, I need your opinion on these shorts or culottes I think is the official name for them, they are from Matalan and I love the floral design but don't know if they look a little odd so can't decide whether to keep or return, what do you think?



Cardi: River Island
Top: Topshop
Shorts: Matalan
Sandals: Matalan

Hope you all have a lovely evening, I'm going to catch up on last nights Gossip Girl!!
