As a regular Chanel make-up wearer and being disappointed with counter staff service, I decided enough was enough.
These past couple of weeks I have been browsing the web in search of ‘cult classics’. Brands and products that have been around for years, often with formulations that haven’t changed.
I decided to pop into boots and use my points to purchase a couple of items to see what I thought. Due to my Mam and I buying a Pan Stick each, we got a free gift which included primer, lipgloss and mascara.
I’ve only been using these make-up items for 4 days and already I am converted. I won’t be returning to Chanel any time soon (I’ve still got products left from them which I will use up).
I don’t think I’d repurchase the Face Finity Primer as I haven’t noticed a difference with how long my make-up lasts.
The False Lash Effect mascara is a lovely mascara that coats the lashes without making them appear clumpy.
The lipgloss is a favourite of mine. I wanted a red lip colour for the Christmas season and family get togethers and this shade is perfect.
Pan Stick has been around for decades and I can see why it is very popular. I only use a small amount of foundation, it covers redness and helps even out the skin without appearing thick, cakey or orangey. I like to set it with a powder.
My party make-up will consist of these four make-up items, a neutral smoky eye and rose blush.
This is my first foray into budget beauty in years and I am not disappointed. I’m looking forward to making more make-up discoveries next year. Do you have any favourites?
