I cannot stress enough how much I love Essence. Their products are available in Penneys and pharmacies nationwide and are a must have for Christmas. I am in love with their lipsticks because there are so many shades available, they don't dry out your lips and they are cheap and cheerful! I always use them. They are perfect if you have a teenage daughter finding her feet in the world of beauty because you will be able to buy her a few for the price of one expensive lipstick. And trust me, it's totally worth it, such great quality... I love them!
Make Up Gallery Smoothly Does It Pressed Powder
You aren't going to believe me when I say I bought this for only €1.49, but it's the truth! This is my go to powder and doesn't make me want to look in my purse and cry after purchasing. I can't wait to try all of Dealz other make-up products, I am very impressed so far.
Batiste Plumping Powder
Okay, so I know you're probably all sick of me going on about this stuff I refer to as fairy dust, but I promise you, you will be thanking me later. You simply sprinkle it on your hair and it creates volume, so no more backcombing hassle. I have seen other brands for around €30 euro, but I bought mine in Penneys for around the €4 mark and usually stock up. I actually tried the more expensive one to test it, but I didn't find it as good as Batiste. My mum is a hairdresser and uses it in her salon and we LOVE it. Plumping powder is a must have in the Fox household!
Penneys Make-up Brushes
I was dying to try these from the moment I heard they came out. I finally bought one for my eyes and love it. For €1.50 you would be crazy not to grab a few, has Penneys ever let us down before? I think not! Just think how pricey other make-up brushes can be, it's mad. I have not tried the others in the Penneys range yet so cannot recommend them but I definitely will be trying them as I'm sure they're great. I love my one for the eyes as I can blend with the bigger end and I use the smaller to apply eyeshadow as eyeliner, I love it :)
Penneys Make-up Fixing Spray
Even as a blogger and lover of make-up, I'm not going to sit here and tell you I can afford loads of expensive make-up because that would be a complete lie, I'm constantly bargain hunting! I cannot express how excited I was the time I was strolling out of Penneys and a bottle of Make-Up Fixing Spray caught my eye. I had never had one of these before so headed up to the till with this instantly. I honestly find it really good for setting my make-up and it only cost €2.50.
Catrice Even Skin Tone Beautifying Foundation
I am such a foundation hopper these days, I can't help myself. I always use Estee Lauder Double Wear for going out but for everyday use I need something a little more natural and affordable. I was using No7 Stay Perfect which I loved, but then I ran out so decided to give another affordable brand a go - Catrice! I bought their Even Skin Tone Foundation for around the €8 mark and am really loving it. I am so pale so I find it hard to find a natural looking foundation to match my skin tone. I must say though, after buying it, I am really impressed. It has really nice coverage (goodbye dark circles) and doesn't make me look orange. Such a gorgeous product for a natural, flawless finish!
Okay girls, I hate to be the bringer of bad news, but I can see how all this beauty product shopping is going to end...
