Budget beauty

As much as I do love high end beauty products, I also do love some budget beauty brands. I know some don't live up to the expectations but here is some that have for me!

First off I got the Make Up Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Pink Lights, I have been loving everything lilac at the moment so as soon as this caught my eye I knew I needed it. Even just in the box it looks amazing, and the lilac colour stands out so much. This reminds me of NARS Sex Fantasy blush, but obviously a shimmer version, there is just something about the colour I love. 

I saw my friend wearing this lipstick a few fews ago and immediately loved it, it reminds me of Mac Up the Amp but a matte finish. I think I was in 3 Superdrug stores before I found one it was actually in stock in! I've tried the other Make Up Academy lipsticks and never really liked the formula, but the matte formula is so much better! And for only £1 I can't really complain at all. The shade I got was Lilac Belle, which is exactly what it says in the name really it's a lovely shade of light purple. It was a lot more pigmented than what I expected too!

I also grabbed two liners, though there was no purple shade to match my new lipstick I got the two I would get the most use out of. I got Brooding Plum and Caramel Nougat, I'm still on the look for the perfect brown toned liner to match my Taupe lipstick. I have heaps of red lipsticks so I knew the Brooding Plum would match one of them! The liners are really creamy and go on really well, they are also really pigmented. Usually some cheaper liner brands have barely any colour and quite rough so was really impressed with this!
