Affordable products that get me through the day – Part Two

I’m back again with part two of my affordable products!

#6 on my list is…. The brows!! Your brows have got to be ‘on fleek,’ it’s a MUST.

This is just one of the products that I have for my eyebrows. It literally is what it says on the tin…genius. I love it. It’s tiny so it fits perfectly in my makeup bag! It has a wax which I use to go over my brows with once I have shaped with an eyebrow pencil and my NYX brow brush. I then use the brush again to fill in my brows with the powder. This product is £9.99 from Superdrug and is in shade Light to Medium. This product also has shade Medium to Dark. I would give this product 8/10 for affordability and the quality of it.

#7 – Eyes

Now this one is not so affordable, but it is something that I use most days just to add a subtle colour to my eyelids. It’s the Urban Decay ‘Naked 2’ basics palette.

It’s the perfect size palette to just slip into my makeup bag and carry around in my handbag. It shades are subtle which I love, because I’m not a fan of bright colours. So the smokey colours are perfect for me. The palette costs £24 from Debenhams, but I promise you won’t regret it! I give this product 9/10 as the quality of the product is good and it’s easy to apply.

Now, mascara. This is the same mascara I have been using for years. I love it – although it’s not waterproof! So I’m not allowed to cry wearing this, unless I want to look like a giant crying panda. Originally I got this from Boots, but I can’t seem to find it and I can’t remember how much I paid. Boo hoo! Looks like I need to shop around for a new one!

#8 – Lovely smelling, shiny hair!

Who doesn’t love it when their hair is shiny and smells amazing!

Now, my hair has a tendency to be dull and dehydrated when I’ve washed and dried it. SO, in order to revive my hair and give it some moisture along with the most amazing smell I use Natural World coconut water ‘hydration & shine weightless hair oil.’ A little of this goes a long way, if you put too much in your hair will go greasy and it is a disaster – trust me, I’ve been there and done that!

I rub a little bit into my hands and then run my hands through my wet hair. I then dry my hair and viola! Beautifully smelling and shiny hair – who wouldn’t want that? You should all try this product, I got it from Tesco and it costs £5. It is definitely worth it as I give it a 9/10 due to it being the best hair product I have ever used. It does the job of hydrating my hair and reviving it like never before!

#9 – Talking of smells, who doesn’t love perfume?!

Next have the most perfect range of perfume’s, who would have thought it? My favourite is ‘Sparkle’ it has a very sweet scent and it’s SO affordable!

Sparkle is one of many perfumes by Next, but this one is my all time favourite. Although I’m not sure who is working out their pricing strategies. The large bottle costs £12, but you can also by the set, which includes the large bottle and the Sparkle cream, for £12 too. Obviously I opted for the set as it makes more sense!

But seriously, if you’ve not got it….get it! I’d give this product 10/10 because it smells great, I love the bottle and it’s very…me.

#10 – MORE SMELLS

I love perfume and sprays, they’re great! I mean come on, who doesn’t love smelling great?

These two beauties, pictured above were both gifts. Now, I LOVE it when people buy me things like this for birthdays and Christmas, they are ideal gifts! The ghost perfume, my best friend Sofia brought me – what a babe! I would give it a 9/10, it has quite a strong scent but not so much that it’s over powering. I think you can get this for around £20 from most perfume shops!

The French Connection body spray is to die for! Love the smell, it’s very sweet BUT I do think they have stopped making this now. Which makes me sad because I adore it! BUT, I do have a back up spray that I like The Soap and Glory ‘Original Pink’ body spray, which costs £4 from Boots.

I hope you have enjoyed both of my affordable product posts!

Thank you for reading!
