The Video: The Budget Beauty Haul

Over the past few weeks, two things happened: 1) Two “drugstore” hauls very close in succession and 2) Three budget foundations were purchased. THREE! Am I feeling okay? *holds hand to head*…

I never used to rate the offerings that the high street beauty brands had to offer me – exclusions apply to Collection concealers and a whole host of budget mascaras because they are simply awesome – but over the past few months there have been a fair few releases that have seriously impressed me. Bourjois, Revlon and Rimmel in particular – you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention (and my money).

    I love the nearly naked foundation, I picked up Shell a couple of weeks ago but like nude is for you, it's just slightly slightly too dark so I think I'll need to go and get the shade below. I really want to try the Happy Light foundation, looking forward to hearing what you think of it!

    Love this video,always been interested in the powder you mentioned as you said so may people have compared it to the Hourglass ambient light powder. Interested to hear your opinions. Also loving that you picked up Loreal Telescopic mascara that was my go-to mascara back in the day before I discovered Rimmel Lash accelerator endless! Looking forward to your autumn outfit of the days!

    Can't wait to try the Revlon Nearly Naked, it seems lovely! But I think it might be hard to choose the right shade for me because unfortunately we don't have Revlon here and so I have to buy it online.
    Loved this video, you look so pretty as well as your background 🙂
