Been awhile since I’ve done a nice round-up of monthly beauty mag freebies but one caught my eye the other day that I couldn’t resist posting (the offer is that good). Now the Clinique X Glamour mag freebies seem to come around roughly once a year (I’ve blogged about it last year as well), I picked up a chubby stick and my favourite moisturiser (convenient travel size!) last time and really loved them, there some great freebies this year as well including:
Very excited about this post and aren’t we all lucky to be living in such exciting times (okay, maybe I take makeup too seriously), just think about it, in just the past year the number of decent budget cosmetics brands have doubled! At least, it sure seems that way to me because I only knew of E.L.F. and MUA before (don’t they love their acronyms?) and then again, maybe E.L.F. doesn’t count because it’s only available onine. Then just a few months ago Makeup Revolution launched to much hype and fanfare, now it’s been barely that much longer and we have I ♡ Makeup!
Above are two of my favourite palettes from the brand, can you tell already that everything’s going to be kitchsy? Not that that’s a bad thing. Almost every other makeup palette that launches these days has that sleek black plastic casing, which is meant to look professional but obviously we know it’s just economical (and I definitely won’t complain when there’s amazing price points to be had as well!
Whew, blogging this at 1.30am, just finished with work for today and as the show I’m currently working on opens soon there’s definitely been a huge flurry of late nights! Plus, I’ve a ton of other work to do as well, ah it’s never good at crunch-time but all will be worth it come Opening Night! Anyway, today I’m here to tell you about the most amazing giveaway for new budget beauty brand Makeup Revolution!
Just from the pictures you can see that product is a dupe for the Naked palettes, eh? It does look good though and reviews are showing some very positive things, I’m absolutely so, so excited for this!! What I’ve read reminds me of MUA so far so similar price points and I just love that the range of stuff we have for budget beauty keeps expanding more and more every day. Each of those palettes are just £4, like an MUA palette, amazing!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely Valentine’s Day 🙂
I’ve got an amazing little bargain for you that’ll brighten up your weekend, teehee.
I’m sure you’ve heard of the brand E.L.F. (or Eyes Lips Face), especially if you’ve been reading this blog any amount of time as I’ve mentioned their sales, deals, hauls, reviews and even a ‘miss-list’ before!
Anyway, E.L.F. is basically an amazing budget brand, they’re full of ‘hits’ and ‘misses’ but for the price range it really delivers surprising quality sometimes! Personally, I always do a bit of research into a product before I buy it because I don’t want to end up with a bag of terrible products but there’s been stuff I’ve got that are so cheap that I’ve really just thrown them into the bag (like a great powder I picked up that was less than £1 in a sale! Hmm, need to do a review on that…).
Oh yes, best thing about this promo code is that it is applicable to even sale items, which is lovely 🙂
Hi there my pretties!
So, seeing as Valentine’s is today, the internet is practically abuzz with all sorts of V-Day makeup look tutorials! Did you know, that the Chinese have their own Valentine’s Day based on the Lunar Calendar? And tomorrow, for the first time in a long, loooong time, the Chinese and English Valentine’s coincide on the same day! Right, trivia for the day done with… time to get to the topic of the day which is budget red lipstick!!
Back to Valentine’s looks, most of these seem to contain that quintessential red lip. Depending on how you pair it with the rest of your look and whether it’s a warm or cool red lip, it can be sexy, dangerous, classy, inviting… you name it. Honestly you can never have too many red lipsticks and I for one don’t think I’ve found my ultimate, perfect one yet but I have found loads of amazing budget ones in my parsimonious quest for good makeup.
This post is for those of you who want to rock that glam, V-day look without breaking the bank 😉
And even if V-Day is not for you or it’s long past by the time you read this, a red lip that you like should always be an essential part of your makeup bag!
1) MUA Matte Lipstick in Scarlet Siren
You’ve probably read my million and one posts that I’ve already done about the amazing MUA Matte Lipsticks and how they’ve come to my rescue in a makeup emergency one time in Germany but I can’t resist mentioning them once again.
