We all like to treat ourselves once in a while so I had to do it! I love walking into shops and just picking up anything and everything I like the look of!
My main shops are usually drug store (superdrug), Poundland and primark bit of a cheap skate over here but I love their products!
First product was from primark which is their nude collection eyeshadow palette for £8 ~
I love the look of this palette and all the colours are ones I will always use as I love my nude colours.
The pigment on this palette is amazing, and goes on smoothly and with setting spray the colours pop!
I have done some swatches for you all to see just how amazing the colours are but this is definitely a must buy.
One of these palettes is the dupe of urban decay heat palette which is much cheaper which I love.
These palettes were £4 each in primark and I love the colours they do.
You can’t go wrong with a cheap eyeshadow palette that has amazing colours.
The pigment in all of the palettes is gorgeous and long lasting throughout the day.
They are also colours you can build on depending what eye look you are wanting to achieve.

Everyone will notice this next product looks very similar to the Kim K version but it’s a hell of a lot cheaper.
Primark version is £8 for this collection.
The collection includes a double ended brush with beauty blender/brush, a double ended contour stick, a brow highlighter & a double ended highlighting stick.
The brush is amazing even though it’s tiny both ends blend your makeup really well.
The contour stick appeared very dark on both ends but once applied and blended in it was amazing for contouring, it will scare you a little bit on how dark it is but it looks great when blended.
On the other hand the highlighting sticks weren’t for me, the double ended highlighting stick the colours were a orange/gold colour and a silver/white colour but the pigmentation in both pens didn’t show up as much as I would of liked.
The next palette is the fortune favours the brave from makeup revolution ~ £9.99 in superdrug!
It looks like a gorgeous palette but I was slightly disappointed with the eyeshadows pans that are a mixed colour didn’t show up as much as I would like.
But on the other hand the pigmentation and colours in the eyeshadow pans is gorgeous.
I love the look of palette aswell it’s not a boring looking palette and not plain black, it’s golden on the outside with a pattern on the front it’s just one I have to show off.
Next is the soph highlighter palette from makeup revolution ~ £8 from superdrug.
The colours are gorgeous and there’s a mixture of highlighting colours which gives you a bigger choice.
I have done swatches for this but forgot to take a picture but the glow on these highlighters is glowing central.
You can always build on these highlighters depending how much of a glow you want on your face but this is a must buy palette for me.
It’s always annoying for me when I can’t find foundation that gives me the coverage I would like.
I want to cover up the freckles and blemishes not have them showing each time I put makeup on, so I went on a foundation hunt.
Which is when I came across e.l.f cosmetics in superdrug and this beauty was £7.50.
I always have to get the lightest shade as my face is as a pale as a white sheet, but this colour was just my colour and the coverage was just what I was looking for.
A tiny bit…
Can go a long way!
With the right blenders and products on your face the coverage is amazing my hand doesn’t show it great but it gives you an idea!
Everyone went crazy about this product!
The revolution concealer for £4 from superdrug is a must buy for me.
The coverage is amazing on this concealer and I love the applicator that’s inside ( I should of taken a picture)
I always use it for underneath my eyebrows as I have never found one that’s given my eyebrows the pop they need but this concealer is my life saver.
I got the colour C3 even though I’m very pale this was a perfect colour for me.
I went from using brow pencils, brow gel to brow pomade as people suggested it so much.
I wouldn’t go back definitely not I started off with the primark brow pomade but recently bought the makeup revolution pomade for £6.
The colour is medium brown and it’s amazing, it made my eyebrows look ten times better.
It’s long lasting and goes on so smoothly, the box does come with an applicator but I didn’t use it.
Looking for the perfect primer is always annoying isn’t it??
I went from using the no7 primer which wasn’t as good as what I thought it would be so I recently makeup revolution ultra face base primer for £4 I think.
Primer helps a lot when it comes to makeup, it doesn’t have a greasy feel to it either. It gives you a gorgeous soft feeling to your face and helps a lot with the makeup staying on for the whole day.
We all love our setting sprays to complete our look and have that final finish.
I can’t remember the price around £5 I think from superdrug.
It doesn’t leave you with the greasy/wet feeling that some setting sprays do. It gives you that skin glow that you are looking for and helps keep your makeup.
The final look using some of these products was a lot better than the previous looks I have done :
We all love a shopping spree every now and then and finding the right products for your makeup look and I think I’ve found mine but there’s always room for me!
