Beauty On A Budget no3

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

I love talking about my favourite affordable products as I know not everyone has the cash to splurge on a £40 foundation, and being a student I now fully appreciate the power of the drugstore! There are so many great products from Boots and Superdrug ect that I could write these posts for days, but today I'm going to talk you through my current favs!

Starting with Soap and Glory, their makeup range has taken us all by storm and their products are rather excellent! The Solar Powder was definitely a Lily Pebbles enabled purchase and I will forever love her for it. It comes with two different shades, a lighter more shimmery bronzer and a darker one and I tend to mix the two together for a perfect bronze glow. I've also been on the hunt for a new liquid liner and the Supercat Liner is definitely one to try out if you love to achieve a cat eye the easy way. It has a little nib that tapers at the end making it super easy and allowing you to get great control over that line.

Hair is something I don't tend for venture out of Boots for, as I find I use hair products up so quickly that a trip to Space NK for the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray is no longer worth it. Instead the Toni and Guy Sea Salt Texturing Spray has been doing the job quite nicely. This is very comparable to the Bumble and Bumble Sea Salt Spray but for a half the price. These are very popular in the summer but I feel like textured hair is an all year round thang.

As we are moving into the colder months keeping those lips chap free has never been so high on our list of priorities. Although you can't find this product at the drugstore, for £5.50 I think it still qualifies for a mention . The NUXE Reve De Miel is a much loved lip balm among bloggers and I have the one in the little twist up tube as I find it a lot easier to take out and about with me.

  1. Love the supercat eyeliner and the bronzer is nice, although I’d prefer it without the highlighter shade. I tweeted a picture this morning about the packaging of this bronzer! Mine is falling apart! Shame about the quality!

  2. The Supercat liner is one of my all-time beauty favourites as I'm rarely without my winged eyeliner! I've not tried the Solar Powder though, so will have to give it a go. Another great post! x
