My Beauty Finds...January 2015...

Budget Beauty at its best......

So I thought id do a little Blog with all the little things that I have accumulated and tried over the last couple of weeks.

We are only on day 8 of January and I cannot wait until payday as there a few more things I've got my eye on.

So anyway with money being so tight I've been on a mission to buy a few things to lift my mood (and my complexion!) without breaking the bank!!

I've also added a link to where you can get them for yourself (where i can) if the mood arises...

Firstly a little bargain from Poundworld -

I have used both of these and must say i'm quite impressed. The nude colour is slightly darker than its come out in the picture.
its thick and even and dries pretty quickly. I managed to get a couple of days wear before any chips. So overall a big thumbs up!

Another product from the Make Up gallery at Poundworld

This foundation. 

Ive used it a couple of times and its quite a nice medium coverage.

I wouldn't write home about it, its OK. Fine for a £1 and fine for work and everyday use, Id probably buy it again.


I ordered a few bits online at

I love Superdrug as If you spend £10 you get free delivery! and you also get points on your beautycard. Winner!

So i got a few bits from MUA

I LOVE this Twelth night palette. I am yet to use it but had a good old swatch!!! Look how pigmented and gorgeous the colours are! I cant wait to use the Green on my middle finger with the gold on my little finger. Amazing!!! But for some reason I cannot find it online anymore? I only got it a week ago?!

Amazing amazing amazing Highlighter, fabulous gold colour. Id heard alot about this on YouTube as a dupe for Nars Albatross (which I have used) and this is the same and a minuscule price! Whats not to love?!!! Buy it here

Not really given this enough of a try as of yet! The texture is nice and smooth and its easy to apply. I'm hoping it doesn't crease and holds my shadow from day to night.  Try it here


Another new Beauty find is this - 

It leaves your skin squeaky clean without that horrible tight feeling, just lovely soft skin! An absolute must! and cheap too!
Buy it here from Boots.


Now a couple of products by W7...

I got this one just before xmas so as you can see ive already used it a fair bit! and Oh my goodness I am in love!!!! Again recommended by many Youtubers as an Urban Decay Dupe, This In the Buff Palette is long lasting, easy to apply and so pigmented! Its a must buy for 2015 (if you've been slow to the boat like me!)

Another W7 product I bought off the back of a review by Vinny (LittleMissStyleGuru)

I've not tried it yet, but hoping it gives good results.

I picked it up in my local Savers but you can by it online direct from the W7 website, along with the palette, here.


And my last and final item which i am so so pleased with ....

This hand cream is amazing!!! it is from Aldi and it was 75p!!!!!!

Yes 75p! and it works, really works!!

If you have an Aldi near you go and check out their products! They are all amazing and so so cheap!


So that's it!

Hope you have enjoyed my little haul for you,  Im hoping to do another Make Up look soon along with a Get ready with me vid over on my channel....

Until next time..

Much Love

Get ready with me.....????

Get ready with me....FAIL

So tonight i decided to be brave and film a Get ready with me for YouTube.

I never realised how much work goes into making a video!! There's the lighting, position of the camera, remembering all your make up (erm derrrr) and I tell you what, its hard bloody work.
Especially when your camera cuts off half way through and misses out a big chunk of your video!  

So anyway, I had planned to do a quick everyday look with a nice matte lippy.

And here is the end result -

These are the products I used -

I have made a list so you can find the correct shades.

Its quite a natural look, and can be dressed up with a brighter lippy of your choice.

  • Dr Jart - Recover Primer
  • Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam in 020 Cameo
  • MUA Pro base Argan Plush Concealer in FAIR
  • Revlon Photoready powder in 020 LIGHT
  • Make Up Revolution Focus & Fix Eye Primer
  • W7 In the Buff Palette - Sand, Dust & Wave
  • Eyeko FAT Eye Stick - SMOKE
  • Soap & Glory Supercat Liner
  • Rimmel Wonderfull Mascara - Extreme Black
  • Rimmel Blusher in Soft Rose
  • MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter
  • Make Up Revolution - Matte Lipstick in Nude.
And i think that's it.

Maybe i will get round to a video one day.....

Until next time my lovelies....

Much Love
