High Street Done Good / 5 Buys You Should Snap Up

Tweet | Facebook | Email

This summer, I am a bridesmaid at two weddings, a guest at three, have two hen dos and a few birthdays scattered in for good measure. While I’m sure they’ll all be mighty fun, I’m also looking at parting with a whole lot of cash once I’ve travelled/bought gifts/found dresses/paid for semi-nude butlers to serve drinks. If you’re in a similar boat and wouldn’t mind saving pounds where possible, here are five make-up buys that don’t cost the earth but will do marvellous things for your face //

Maybelline Vivd Matte Lipsticks Review

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid l to r 20 Coral Courage, 40 Berry Boost, 50 Nude Thrill

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid, £4.99 each here / I’ve yet to find an expensive matte this good – seriously, these stick around for ages but don’t dry or make lips feel like they’ve shrunk. Nude Thrill is my current jam – it looks amazing with a bit of bronzer and kohl-rimmed eyes.

Maybelline Contour Stick Review

Maybelline Master Contour V-Shape Duo Stick Contour & Highlight £6.99 here / While I don’t love a fully contoured face, a swipe of this cool toned creamy pen under the cheekbones and a little danced on the tops of cheekbones looks great. Make sure you blend properly.

Bourjois Paris Bronzing Powder Tropical Festival Limited Edition Review

Bourjois Paris Bronzing Powder Tropical Festival Limited Edition, £5.99 here / Move quickly on this one if you’re keen – I’ve been told it’s flying off shelves. Doesn’t surprise me – it’s perfect for handbags owing to it being lightweight and encased in cardboard, it applies a subtle wash of bronze but can be built up, and it contains just the teeniest touch of illuminating shimmer (on the skin it just looks glowy, not shimmery).

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick review

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick in Wine Not Satin and Love & O-Beige Shine

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lipsticks – The Nudes and Reds Collection, £9 each / Good nudes in a variety of shades and reds that look juicy with a decent pay off – a lipstick from these collections deserves a place in your make-up bag.

Revlon ColorStay Make-Up Combination/Oil in 220 SPF 15

Revlon ColorStay Make-Up Combination/Oil in 220 SPF 15, £12.99 here / This performs as well as a foundation three times the price and is a favourite among make-up artists. It offers medium to full coverage (depending on how you apply it) and I find it looks best when applied over a primer/moisturiser.
