Hello everyone, if you’re ready for a little bit of beauty talk then I suggest you sit down, get a cuppa by your side and get comfy (i.e. sit in your onesie like me). Despite being a student, I had a bit of a splurge this week and decided to treat myself – because lets face it we all need a bit of pamper time now and then; particularly through stressful times. The three products below are the beauty products I decided to treat myself to (all from Collection); how can anyone resist 3 for 2 discounts?!
Collection – longer lash waterproof mascara (black) – I don’t know about you, but for me, applying my mascara is quite possibly my favourite part of my makeup application – and there’s nothing better than when they’re looking super long and thick. But when it comes to selecting my mascaras I prefer ones that focus on lengthening rather than thickening my eyelashes. I’m not particularly loyal to one brand when it comes to mascara and have tried out a large range; but it was the astoundingly good value of this one that spoke out to me.
Collection – lasting colour lipstick – 11 Amethyst Shine – this shade of lipstick is exactly the shade I was looking for as my go-to lip colour this Autumn. If you know me you’ll already know that Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons of the year, there’s nothing I love more for it than winter fashion and a dark lip.
Collection – naturally matt – ‘all day fresh matt finish foundation‘ (ivory 2) – again this product was very affordable, but it wasn’t just that factor which made me pick this product off the shelf, it was also the fact that I’ve been in desperate need of a new liquid based matte foundation. With having oily skin, there’s nothing I find more annoying than when it’s half way through the day and my makeup is sliding off my face and looking shiny; so a matte foundation that stays on is a keeper.
To wrap it up, these products are well and truly affordable and definitely meet the criteria I had in mind. What are all of your recent purchases for Autumn/Winter?
