I’ve never done one of these, and I probably never will again but I have bought lots of cute bargain beauty bits and bobs that I just want to show off! All of the make up products listed are cruelty free, and available on the high street.


Collection, Velvet Kiss in Cotton

A couple of weeks ago, I got Collection’s Velvet Kiss for free because I’m weak, and couldn’t resist a ‘spend £6 for a free £2.99 lip gloss’ deal- it makes no sense! I got it in Cotton, and I have worn it most days. It does have a velvet-y feel, and is fairly long lasting.

Also for £2.99 each, I bought Makeup Revolution’s Lip Lava, in Forgiven and Tremor. Forgiven is a lot browner than any lip product I’ve ever bought or worn but it’s definitely my favourite of the two. They have a really great applicator too, and come in little boxes which is fab for less than £3.

Also pictured are my new, emergency sunnies from Matalan- I have really badly scratched my Monki ones, like a fool- and this powder from MUA.



This weekend, I decided to try something new and so bought Marks and Spencer Limited Edition lipsticks and a concealer kit. Also pictured is a Skinnydip phone case, that is no longer available!

The lipstick trio, in shades of pink, is maybe the best thing I have bought in ages. The box was only £12, and all three are really moisturising.



I am on a constant mission to find a concealer, and I think I might have done it with this kit! The green and yellow pens are colour correctors, and the kit also includes two shades of concealer- I think I’ll attempt contouring with the slightly darker shade!

Unlike some colour corrector and concealer pens, these aren’t particularly chalky and so blend much better- and for only £8, this is a winner.

Also in the Limited Edition beauty range is a Highlight and Glow set (£8), and an Eyebrow kit (also £8)- neither of which were in stock but both are on my want list.

Woohoo! I survived my first beauty post and only cringed three times. Have you tried any of these products? Let me know in the comments!

Till next time… Izzy x
