Budget Buys!

As much as I love high-end makeup, who can resist a bargain! On that note I found myself stocking up on drug store makeup and thought I would share my first impressions with you 🙂



L’Oreal Paris Glam Bronze La Terra sun powder face and body-£12

What attracted me to this initially was the huge pan size. You get 18g of product. Yup, you heard me right. 18g! I don’t think I have ever seen such a generous portion. I purchased the shade 02 Capri-Naturale. I would say the color pay off is pretty good. It has a slight sparkle to it but nothing too out there. However, I have found it’s just a tad too orange for my skin tone. I can wear it, but it definitely requires a bit more work in terms of blending than other bronzers I own.

L’Oreal Infaillible Luminizing Primer-£8.99

Anything with the word ‘luminzing’ and I’m sold. I’m a firm believer in a good base sets you up for a good make up day. This primer has a slightly pink iridescent glow to it. I’m not one to wear primers alone but mixed in with foundation it works well. It’s not greasy or heavy and adds a pretty sheen. I wouldn’t say it adds longevity though.

Nyx Urban Decay Lip Liner-£6.00

I actually bought this because I saw it as a staple on Nivvii06 channel. I am honestly so impressed. I have been wearing this lip liner non stop. It is pigmented and creamy. I have had several compliments on my lip shade since I purchased this and literally the only product that has changed is the lip liner. The only thing I would say is that it applies quite thick. But nothing that can’t be fixed with a sharpner or some concealer. Well worth a purchase!

L’OrealI Infaillible Longwear Shaping Foundation Stick-£8.99

Saving the best till last. My standout product has to be L’Oreal foundation stick! I purchased the shade toffee to use as a contour stick. It hits every one of it’s claims. It is pigmented, creamy and longwearing. Dare I say it, but this is better than any contour product I have owned to date. It has changed my contour game and is fast becoming a staple item. I think I will purchase my foundation shade in this also 🙂
