I went shopping looking for a jewel colours eye palette, some waterproof mascara, a face powder in my summer skin colour and an eyebrow pencil for lazy days. Here is what I got
MUA Eyeshadow Palette in Poptastic
First I bought an eye palette from MUA, I was looking for a Sleek one but the colours in this one are better and it's half the price! I love the quality of the shadows by MUA, there is only one major downside and that is the size of the individual colours, but at £4 I can't complain. I am really happy with this, and can't wait to wear the bright colours on holiday with a tan. Full review to follow shortly.
Bourjois 1 Second Volume Waterproof Mascara
on sale at £7.99
MUA Pressed Powder
Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil
I usually use Benefit Browzing in the colour "medium" for my eyebrows but sometimes, when I am in a rush or travelling I find it too much of a faff. I was looking for something that I could just apply in a hurry and that had a brush on the other end for the removal of foundation/facepowder out of my brows. This seemed the closest colour match I could find, the blonde ones were all too light and the dark ones, scary looking. It was only £2.99 and it has a lovely consistency, not too waxy that it slides, but not so hard that it pulls and drags. The only thing that slightly lets to down is having to sharpen it, but at least I will be able to get a nice sharp point on it. I got in the colour hazel.
Garnier Ultra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
Boring, Boring, Boring.... this was £2 something or another and looked like it would work (has an oily layer and a watery layer.) I like that it is a small bottle, as it takes me a couple of years to get through a bottle by which point I am well and truly bored of the sight of it. Apparently this particular one helps condition your lashes, I seriously doubt it, but for £2 who cares. I like the purpley colour. I think that its all I can say about it.
Overall I am ridiculously over-impressed by the items I got for just £20. I feel I have some real bargains and lots of fresh new lovelies for my makeup drawer/holiday.
