Whilst shopping Friday I had good intentions of finally investing in a MAC foundation (after I've been banging on about it for what feels like an eternity!). However before going to the MAC store I stopped into trusty Superdrug. Bad decision! The bargain hunter in me just couldn't justify paying £23 for foundation alone when I got all the items pictured above for £25! Maybelline had a 3 for 2 offer on so I picked up foundation in my everyday shade (Fawn 040) + my tantastic weekend shade (Sun Beige 048) resulting in a free lipstick (I chose Luminous Beige, a nude-ish colour). I've been after a coral blusher for a while & the one that caught my eye was the MeMeMe Blush Me! box in Coral. It's probably the most I've spent on a blusher at £8.50 but I'm really happy with the result so far! I'm now hoping to get my hands on an orange toned lipstick to compliment my new blush! Whilst at the MeMeMe concession I noticed that the face illuminator was on offer so picked up the Beat the Blues in Sunbeam. 

I can see the difference in my make-up application since using the MAC 187 brush so not ignoring the fact that there is quality that comes along with the price tag. I can honestly see myself eventually caving in and buying MAC; but at the moment while I'm working part-time & have no student loan coming in I think I'll be sticking to my Maybelline! What about you; make up snob or offer hunter?...

  1. I use that Maybelline foundation too, and i'm the same - a pale shade for my pale days, and sun beige for the weekends when i'm nice and orange haha! My boyfriend offered to buy me the Estee Lauder Doublewear foundation, so I couldn't resist - and do you know what, it is horrible! It's REALLY thick and gloopy and doesn't blend in well. So I went back to my trusty Maybelline one, it's simply perfect!
    Love your blog, only came across it this evening but I enjoy reading it!
