Budget Buys No.4


Another budget buys for you today, and I've got a few gems here that I can't wait to talk you about! I love doing these as I always think you can find some amazing products at the drugstore that don't break the bank but work just as well as some from higher-end brands.

Firstly a skincare product I've fallen in love with is The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Serum which I've been applying every morning before moisturiser. One pump of this will do as it's quite a liquid-y gel type consistency but it sinks into the skin beautifully. Since using this I feel like my skin has been a lot more plump and my moisturiser works better with this underneath. If you're looking for some new skincare The Body Shop Vitamin E range is one I would highly recommend for dry/normal skin.

For makeup there are a couple of bits worth mentioning. Topshop do some great bits which I think are very underrated in the industry, being a cult product their Glow Cream Highlighter was one I wanted to try and I wasn't disappointed. Although it's more creamy than other highlighters I've used I find it's easy to blend and the gold shimmer looks stunning on the skin, especially in the summer. I find patting it in with my fingers the best way to apply this, when I use a brush it seems to rub off the foundation I've got underneath so I would use fingers if you can. With a peach or coral blush this looks amazing! Soap and Glory is another brand who's makeup I really rate and their Archery Brows Pencil is a great Brow Wiz dupe for those of you who don't want to splurge. A brow product which has a spoolie on one end already wins in my books and the fine nib makes it easy to draw on hairs for a natural look. The colour selection isn't fab but if one of them suits your brows I would highly recommend picking it up.

I don't think I've mentioned a nail polish before on this series, so today I thought I'd mention two. Essie is an obvious favourite and the shade I've been loving at the moment is Splash of Grenadine which is a nice purple, not sure what kind of purple but it's purple. With a good top coat I can go a good 3-4 days without chipping and the brush makes it really easy to coat the nails evenly. If this colour isn't for you they have a million and one other beautiful shades to choose from. The Maybelline Superstay polishes are another range which are rated highly in my books, all the colours are also really nice and their new summer range is worth checking out. These are great for longevity and, again, I can go nearly a week without this chipping!
