Budget Beauty Buys at Penneys/Primark

There is nothing that I love more than a bargain when it comes to beauty products so I thought I would share some of my favourites with you! All of these items are from the P.S. Love range in Penneys/ Primark which means that they are easy to get your hands on and if you find that you don't like them at least you won't be out a fortune! 



Makeup Brush Cleaner 125ml, €2.50
I have previously written a blog post on the Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner, here,stating how handy it is for keeping your makeup brushes clean in between giving them a deep clean. However, the Cinema Secrets one is twice the price with only half the contents in comparison to the P.S. Love Brush Cleaner from Penneys! I was pleasantly surprised by how good the Penneys counterpart is and will definitely be purchasing more in the future!

False Nails in Fashion & French, €1.50
These False Nails are perfect for an event or night out and are so easy to apply! The glue that comes with them does the trick but if you want them to last a little bit longer it is better to buy some Broadway Nail Glue and use it instead. The only thing about these nails is they aren't going to fit everyone's nails perfectly but for €1.50 can you really complain!? I love the polished look that these nails give for such a tiny price tag!

30PK Individual Lashes, €1.50
These are by far my favourite budget beauty buy from Penneys/Primark. I have a pack of unopened individual lashes from Eylure that I never seem to gravitate towards. I love the fluttery effect of these P.S. Love lashes and they look so natural applied to the outer corners of the top lashes. I am wearing them in this picture below along with a Wet N Wild Lipstick in "Cherry Picking"(which can also be found in Penneys). The Ardell Demi Wispies are my all time favourite strip lashes but are quite pricey and the P.S. Love lashes are like the Demi Wispies in Individual Lash form!

November Favourites

Here is a round up of the products that I've been using religiously this month and a few reasons why I've been loving them so much!



Catrice Camouflage Cream €5.69
This concealer is creamy in consistency and is best suited for covering blemishes and redness. I think it's a brilliant dupe for Benefit's Bong Concealer and for €5.69 it's worth trying!

NYX Creamy Lipstick in B52 €5.49
This colour is the perfect neutral every day shade. It's creamy as the name suggests but also has great staying power and doesn't need to be reapplied that often throughout the day. I love this lipstick and will be purchasing more colours from this range soon.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Blusher in Soft Candy €9.99
The soft texture of this blusher is ideal duringthe Winter months when skin is particularly prone to being dry and flaky. The best product for natural looking flushed cheeks.

Soap and Glory The Perfect Ten €20.50
A mixture of matte and shimmer shades, this is an excellent palette that is evocative of the Naked Eyeshadow Palette range. The eyeshadows themselves are easy to blend and are also quite pigmented. The large mirror on the inside makes it handy for doing make up on the go!

Catrice Ligh Reflecting Concealer €5.69
I am quite prone to under eye darkness and have so far been impressed by this product. I am always trying out new concealers to find one that ticks all the boxes but have settled on this one (for now!) It has a definite YSL Touche Eclat feel to it and will be a repurchase.

Touch of Silver Shampoo by Provoke €2.99
I have been using this shampoo for over 2 years now and don't know how I ever lived without it! (I have been getting highlights for over 10 years). This keeps hair from looking brassy in between highlights and gives blonde hair a nice silver tone.

Topshop Lipstick in Beguiled €9
The perfect mixture of a berry and red for a Winter make up look. It is quite creamy and because of this it needs to be applied often throughout the day. This lipstick looks beautiful paired with a gold eye and lots of highlighter.

Garnier Intensive 7 Days Body Lotion in Cocoa Butter €7.49
Garnier is my favourite go to brand for body lotions and I have been using this particular one since September. I use this about 3 times a week and just after a shower to lock in moisture. The thing I love most about this is the fact that it is super moisturising but doesn't feel greasy. The 400ml bottle also lasts ages and I will be buying this when it runs out.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara €9.99
My eyelashes are naturally long but it's hard to find and all purpose mascara that gives both length and volume. This is a fibre formula mascara and the wand is quite small so it's easy to work with and most importantly doesn't clump. Some people don't rate this but once mine is empty I will be repurchasing. Love it!
