Highstreet Makeup Worth A Purchase




Many people want to find some new makeup items to either try out, compare or just to see what all the hypes about (which in my case is most of the time). So recently I headed to my local Boots and had a £30 budget just to stock up on some talked about beauty favourites. I mainly wanted to focus on three of my favourite parts of makeup one being, Mascara (of course), blusher & of course either a lipstick, lipgloss, lip tint, or a lip plumper. 

I decided to select two brands that create so many amazing makeup items and that I love. So the first brand is of course Soap & Glory, I'm a massive fan of Soap & Glorys products, they smell amazing and I never feel disappointed in them, So I picked up their Thick & Fast High-Definition Collagen-Coat Mascara. Now I have to say my favourite mascara of all time is by Benefit & it's the Roller Lash Mascara. Thick & Fast Mascara just comes under over the £10 mark, which isn't too expensive. It does give a nice coverage and I've found this not to be clumpy or too thick, to the point where it's like road tar on your eyes. It doesn't flake which is a bonus, lasts all day & It does add a fair bit of volume. However the only thing I wish about this mascara is that it didn't dry out as quick, but I guess for the price of this mascara you can't really go wrong if you are wanting a highstreet mascara.

Sticking with Soap & Glory a lot of people either like or don't like the Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Plumping Gloss, I made a little purchase of one in the shade 'Rose & Shine'. These glosses are specifically designed to make your lip pout a little more plump and add a bit of va va voom to your lips haha. They create when applied a cooling and tingling sensation, which does feel extremely weird at first but after the tingling sensation wears off, It makes your lips feel instantly fuller and more defined, they smell amazing (a bit like chocolate). Rose & Shine is a very light pinky rose colour with a bit of a cream finish without any sparkles, I love how it's a very sheer colour and not super pigmented, Did it noticeably plump my lips? I'd say ever so slightly. I love that these lip plumpers can be used on there own or on top of a lipstick or whatever. I'd highly recommend taking a little purchase with these as they are extremely good and just come under the £10 Price tag, and you can't really go wrong with a good lipgloss.


And finally my favourite item BLUSHER, I own way too many blushers. I'm a massive fan of a good quality blusher, the one I picked up and have been loving is the Bourjois Blush in 'Rose d'OR' 34. This is SUPER pretty & really actually quite pigmented, I love this blusher SO much it's just so gorgeous and almost give like a rose gold effect to your cheeks, you can see the pink but you can also see the gold shimmer coming through it's just gorgeous, It acts a little bit like a highlight when you apply it the the apples of your cheeks, It's just gorgeous. It's every easy to blend and just gives a very beautiful overall look. I adore this blusher SO much. again this is SO good as it just comes under the £6 mark.

I did come slightly under budget but honestly all three of these items I'm completely in love with, I'd highly recommend them to anyone who loves a good highstreet makeup purchase. They are all really good quality and don't break the bank.

What are you favourite items of your make up collection?
