PART ONE OF TWO
So basically this is a review of some "value" beauty products all of which i have picked up today for under ten pound. I also also going to list the product i would usually use and the saving.
Unfortunately i'm very funny about what i put on my skin so bar a cheap lipstick this review is mainly going to be about nail products :)
What I Would Normally Buy Sally Hansen Regular Nail Polish Remover
Right, really pleased with this! Gave it the ultimate test of getting glittery nail polish off the nails. But at the end of the day maybe nail polish remover is just nail varnish remover and it's something i was being a bit of a snob about!!!
Not going to bother listing a negative and postives list as as the end of the day it is just nail varnish remover :)
Product: Outdoor Girl Nail Polish in Purple Pastel
What I Would Normally Buy: Models Own Lilac Dream
I have just run out of one of my fave Model's Own polishes so when i saw this lookalike i couldn't resist giving it a go.
Postives - It costs a quid, actually prefer the colour, drys quickly
Negatives - Can tell the quality isnt as good as Model's Own but if you're someone who changes their nail varnish as often as they change their knickers it won't really matter. :)
Product: Technic Lipstick in Sassy
Ok so i don't really own a lippy in this colour as typically this would be a bit too bright for me, i'm more a subtle shades kind a girl and because i love Mac lipsticks i wouldn't want to spend in the region of £20 for something i probably won't wear.
Positives - The packaging is nice, like the colour and it actually looks quite expensive on my lips.
Negatives - As i expected the lipstick actually dried up my lips rather than leaving them feeling moisturized like the MAC ones do.
Overall for a quid i can't complain but please give me the right to retract this tomorrow if i have a big spot on my lip! :)
Product: Compact Mirror
Ok so this technically isn't a product but just wanted to give it a quick mention as I did buy it as part of the cash in my ten pound challenge and i love!! It looks like something I could have picked up at a vintage or crafts fair and the best part is, it only cost a quid! :)
Product: Pretty:Perfect Nail Drying Spray
What I Would Normally Buy: Mava Mava Dry
Best money saving product of the whole haul, i spend a fortune on Mava Mava dry as i find i'm always in a massive rush to get my nails dry but I've just done a quick spray by spray test and the pretty perfect product actually dried my nails faster.
Cannot recommend this product more highly :)
To see the rest of my beauty bargains, come back tomorrow :) xxxx
