I don’t know what it is about make-up that gets me excited (and I am sure a thousand other ladies) but buying new products always gives me a ‘high’. Especially when I use the product for the first time.
If you had to chose three essential, make up items, what would they be? Yep. Only three. Three that you could not bear showing your face without? – I was faced (no pun intended) with this challenge when I got incredibly drunk at a friends wedding the day I was due to fly out to Spain with the lovely ladies in my family. I got so excited by the wine, that I had forgot to pack my flight bag. Being woken up at 2am by my raging nana, pressing me to get myself ‘sorted’ as my lift to the airport was on its way. After throwing a few items into a bag and grabbing my suitcase, I realised that getting drunk before my flight was one of the WORST ideas I had ever been involved in.
Getting into the airport and catching my face in an awful lit mirror, I decided I needed to make myself look some-what decent whilst waiting in the departure lounge… To my horror I had forgotten ALL of my make-up! First it was my bra (which I didn’t really care about – bandeau anyone?) but the make-up?! I had images of sexy Spanish men grimising as they saw my hideous, panda face.
Which is where the three make-up item choices were made. With little money to spare, I thought long and hard about the vital items I needed. Good job they had stores in the airport!
- Red Lipstick
That lipstick was one of the best lipsticks I have ever bought. I constantly used it, even when I was back on UK soil.
However. The other day, I happened to run out of my beloved lipstick. So a trip to Superdrug was in order. As I looked for offers through the shelving, a new brand caught my eye…. “MAKEUP REVOLUTION. Lipstick – £1″
No… That couldn’t be right? One. Whole. Pound?! I nearly had a heart attack! I imagined my weeks of bewitching, coloured lips. Getting one in every different shade… So many to choose from, so why not have them all?! Then I woke up from my dazzling dream.
Out of around ten shades, I chose these two. The ‘Matt Shade’ red to replace my old lipstick love and the ‘Scandalous Shade’ purple. Just because it’s fucking beautiful. (Calm down Emma…)
I had a look at the rest of their products as well and if you are on a budget then these will be the next brand you try! I will be using these babies for the foreseeable future. Go check them out – MAKEUP REVOLUTION – and in any Superdrug store.
