It’s almost the end of the month but payday isn’t quite here yet. I don’t know about you but sometimes I just need a beauty pick me up and I can’t always wait until the 25th to feel cute. There’s a whole world out there that can cater to the makeup junkie without completely breaking the bank…
There’s a big misconception that all lower priced cosmetics are bad quality but this past year I’ve developed a new appreciation for make up that costs much less than its glamourous competitors. Of course, some are cheap beyond the prices but I’ve found that others can offer the same and sometimes more quality than ones we pay more for. As much as I love my pricier products, they’re usually a treat for me or because they’re must have that I haven’t found any other brand offering. And with all sorta of other expenses becoming a reality in my life, I still want to look cute on a budget. Surely I’m not the only one?
So I went a lil crazy at Dischem this past weekend and instead of getting a couple of pick me ups, I got a whole bunch of goodies at the fraction of the price. Here’s my haul:
Clockwise from top left:
L.A. Colours Jumbo Eye Pencil in Beach Resort R15
L.A. Colours Jumbo Eye Pencil in Bronze Shimmer R15
L.A. Colours Chunky Lip Pencil in Warm Caramel R35
Passion nail polish R22
L.A. Colours Chunky Lip Pencil in Spice R35
Catrice lipstick 370 R70
Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Colour in Red Velvet (from Clicks) R40
Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Colour in Mauve Outta Here (from Clicks) R40
L.A Girl Luxury Creme Lip Colour in Cherish R25
L.A Girl Luxury Creme Lip Colour in Dreamer R25
L.A. Colours Jumbo Eye Pencil in Desert Sun R15
L.A. Colours Jumbo Eye Pencil in Tropical Bliss R15
L.A. Colours Jumbo Eye Pencil in Popsicle R15
I’m currently most excited about the lip crayons from L.A. Colours and my latest nail polish addition from I think Dischem’s own brand Passion.
I haven’t yet tried the Wet n Wild lippies but I’ve heard such great things about them and the fact that they were only R35 (!!!) topped it off. I actually got these from Clicks. So far they’re at selected stores so I got mine from Rosebank.
