I tend to focus on skin care when I spend money and it is not often I buy a lot of make up. Earlier this year I decided to try a couple of items that I had seen raved about and looked really good value for money.
1.Mua Pallete Undressed and Undress Me Too.
I would love to have all of the Urban Decay Palettes, but as I can't, these will do for now. The pigment in the matt colours is poor, but buildable. The pigment in the shimmer colours is fabulous as you can see in the swatches. I have swatched just a few colours to give an idea of the quality. These are great little palettes for just £4 a pop. They are definitely worth the money.
Top Shop Highlighter
This looks very yellow in the photo, but you actualy only need a light dusting of this to give a little highlight to your cheek bones. This is a lovely highlighter and definitely worth the £10 price tag. Sometimes the whiter based highlighters are just too cold on my skin and this is a much warmer product for the summer months. The swatch is a heavy ( 3 - 4 coats) layer. You really only need a light dusting and it gives a lovely golden hue.

Beauty Blender ( Dupe)
This is amazing! I never thought it would do the job that everyone said it would. Oh I am getting so suspicious in my old age! It really does give an even finish to whatever you put on your skin, foundations, tinted moisturisers, BBs, concealers etc and is so, so easy to use. I only picked this up as it was at TK Maxx for £4.99. It is not the official Beauty Blender - just a dupe, but it does a brilliant job and my skin looks so much better for it. You immerse in water, squeeze out in a towel and then use to apply your make up. Perfect. I am hooked!

So for once all three products are getting the thumbs up from me . My favourite has to be the Beauty Blender. I thought it was a gimmick, but I have been proven wrong!
