If you -too- often find yourself splurging on makeup items you don’t need, then I am very pleased to meet you. My name is Christina, and I’m a full time university student.
Imagine. You’re standing in Sephora, all the beautiful glossy makeup items dancing mischievously around you. Dollar bills in your eyes.
…and then you wake up.
We are all victims of attractive packaging, raves about the coolest products that luxury brands put out, and the influence of social media. However, what we often fail to keep in mind is ‘ALTERNATIVES’.
I have made a little trip to the ‘Boots’ pharmacy recently, and have picked out some great,budget-worthy makeup products for you!
1: MAYBELLINE INSTANT AGE REWIND CONCEALER (DHS 55)
Get rid of those under eye circles, like you would of your least favourite professor- with this Maybelline magic wand!
2: BOURJOIS VOLUME GLAMOUR MAX MASCARA (DHS37)
Now I’ve actually stumbled upon it accidentally (by stealing it from my mom). However, up to date, I still use it every morning when I get ready! It’s a great budget find, plus, it looks absolutely stunning on your lower lashes. Just make sure to curl your lashes before applying it- as it can be a slight bit heavy, and weigh them down. Nonetheless, a great find.
3: RIMMEL LONDON STAY MATTE LONG LASTING PRESSED POWDER ( DHS 27)
4: RIMMEL LONDON NATURAL BRONZER (DHS 29)
From that same company, I have spotted a gorgeous bronzer to give you that kissed-by-the-Dubai-sunshine type of look , which is ensured to go hand in hand with your ‘Stay Matte’. It’s opaquely pigmented, it’s 29 dhs. It’s waterproof. It’s 29dhs. On top of all that, it’s SPF 15!
