Beauty on a Budget- August

Beauty on a Budget- August

Here are some of my favourite budget beauty buys from August:

1. Essence Cosmetics lipsticks:
This month I got some new lipsticks from Essence cosmetics. I have been using some of their makeup over the years, but now Its safe to say im obsessed with their lipsticks. 

I bought these 2 recently & I love them, they are approx €2.99. (I bought in Australia for $4.80) Cheap as nuts! They are such good quality. I have some mac lipsticks that cost a fortune at home but I much prefer wearing these essence ones for some reason.

Here are the ones I currently have. Ill be adding more to my collection.

I bought mine from Priceline. I know Penneys, boots and most chemists will stock them too.

Worth a try!

2. Clarins Self Tan for Face & Neck

Now that its coming into winter my irish skin will look as pale as a ghost. I like a colour on my body and face, I feel healthier with one. This cream like tanner is so soft on the skin and it works almost right away. 

Only a little bit is needed, apply onto clean skin and neck, follow with moisturiser & spf. Wash hands after so prevent orange hands. 

I always think its best to exfoliate before applying any tans. So a nice gentle daily scrub would be handy to use when using this self tanner.

I paid $30 in duty free in Sydney Airport. So approx €23 (or cheaper!) 

Definately worth a try if you like a bronzed look.

So there you have it, the beauty bargains I picked up this month that are defiantly worth a try and wont hurt your bank balance.

Have a lovely day,
