There's an outlet near where I study at uni and they have a beauty shop there with lots of discounted goodies. I was thrilled to find a reasonable NYX range there - all at super cheap prices. I bought a bunch of lippes and blushers at first, and then later on went back there and bought some more things because I was so impressed with the quality for the price! Here's the first collection..
Left - Nutmeg, Right - Mauve. These blushers were £3.95 (RRP £5.50). I was really after Pinched which I've heard is a great dupe for NARS orgasm, but I love these colours. I've loaded up the Nutmeg a little to show you the colour but lightly applied it has wonderful pink undertones which will work really well as a contour colour.
L-R: Tea Rose, Honey, Pink Nude
The round lipstick in Tea rose was £2.95 (RRP £3.50), it looks a little off in the swatch but is very true to the colour in the tube. The Jumbo Lip Pencils were a steal at £1.95 each (RRP £4.50) and I've heard some great things about honey so was super happy to find them! Pink nude is a lovely shimmery colour and I don't think I'd wear it on its own, but it would look lovely to highlight the cupid's bow.
I've never used Vita Liberata before but this blusher was on sale for £1.95 and although it is a really subtle colour, it really brightens up the face and for that reason I think I'll get a lot of use out of it. It comes with its own brush but isn't great quality, but for the price I don't mind.
In Wilkinson I grabbed this baby shampoo on offer for £1. I've used Elf's brush cleaner for ages but its starting to run out and I don't want to pay the postage for it when this does the job too! I saw on a blog that this Got2B heat protector is fabulous - and on offer for £2, I'm going to try it. On the bloggers chat I was recommended these face masks - and at £1 each I can't wait to try them.
