I've noticed that I haven't done a NOTD in a while. I had to post this one as I love the outcome. All the products I used are seriously cheap, apart from well... my Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. I love all different colours of glitter top coats but now they're becoming more difficult to find in the average drugstore.
Claire's Quick Dry Nail Polish (Quite old and doesn't seem to have a name) 2True Fast Dry Colour Quick Nail Polish in Shade 1
You can tell where the Me Me Me Blush Boxes get their inspiration from, but obviously at £8.50 it's a big step down from Benefit's at £23.50. It even comes with a mirror and brush but as you can see it doesn't have the flip lid like Benefit's.
The Blush Box comes in 4 shades, some are really ultra pigmented but I find this one isn't as much, though it can easily be built up without going overboard. It's a light angelic pearly pink with subtle sparkle. It has a soft texture but it is quite powdery when you swivel your brush round the pan, though there is a deep box to cover this problem. I do love the result of my light pink glowing cheeks.
For me the brush is pretty useless, it's extremely soft but it's far to thin and square to be any use for applying blush, unless of course you love the stripey look.
Superdrug Nautralhigh Anti-Aging Eye Cream- At only £2.49 I'm seriously loving this. It's a light and moisturising formula and since I haven't been using my Clinique All About Eyes Cream I haven't noticed a big difference as I usually do when I stop using it for a while. So for me it's working great, I usually put this on before I go to bed with my skincare ritual.
Barry M Kohl Pencil in 13 Pastel Turquoise- Not the softest eye pencil but this is easily warmed up the skin. It's gorgeously pigmented but it's much more of a cool mint green than a turquoise, which I wanted anyway.
Boots17 Sheer Moisture Lipstick in Pink Chiffon- This pretty warm pearly pink lipstick is quite pigmented for something that's called 'Sheer' and it's nicely moisturising too and looks very shiny. I rediscovered this in my makeup stash and I'm using it quite a bit. There is no scent or taste to the lipstick.
Rimmel Cream Eyeshadows - Found at Poundland. These were released in USA drugstores but not in the UK. So it's weird how these cosmetics end up in Poundland.
Both of these colours which are 800 No Way! and 400 Black N Blue are pigmented, shimmery and just plain lovely shades that you mix up. Just they're major crease city! I used these with Urban Decay Primer Potion and regular powder eyeshadow and they still managed to crease which is the first time a cream shadow has creased on me with the primer potion and powder eyeshadow. You could say this is why they were only a £1.00 each.
Such a beautiful shade from Barry M. I just love Lip Paints because of their array of vibrant colours without a hefty price tag.
Royal Raspberry is yes a raspberry coloured rich blackened red and has this almost metallic finish with a glistening sparkled shift. It's generously pigmented and nicely moisturising and glides on with ease.
The problem is it doesn't last long, I drunk a big cup of tea and there was a lot of fading visible. I can say that I will put up with it as I do love this colour so much. I just hope the bullet doesn't break off like my 129 Palest Lavender. I can see nicks on the sides already!
I detect no scent or taste to this lipstick. RRP is £4.49
Costing only £1.00 each, I picked up two shades from MUA to try and now I'm going to go back and get them all.
I picked up 'Shade '1' which is a light angelic doll pink with light reflective shimmer and 'Shade 4' that is a deep rose coral with this gorgeous sheen.
Both of these colours are equally very pigmented, though they are a tad chalky and somewhat harder to blend than most blushers, they last all day. At this price I was expecting much much worse, considering I'm seriously disliking ELF's Natural Radiance Blusher that is smaller and costs 50p more, if you like you can see my review here.
The packaging is a flip lid that is easy to open and doesn't come with those useless free brushes.

I like to keep my reviews an easy going read but nevertheless detailed and in depth. All reviews are my honest humble opinions, this is what it's all about!
