My first product review in over 6 weeks… #beautybloggerfail lol. I’ve been looking for a new highlighter and had heard really great things about the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in Natural Nude, so when I was in London Drugs last week and saw this all-in-one natural nude palette I decided to give it a try.
Create the Perfect Nude Glow! The must-have nude essentials to create a custom nude look for face and eyes. 12 ultra-chic shimmery nude shades create an all-over nude glow, contour and accentuate cheeks, and enhance eyes. Mirror, applicators and application guide included.
I needed to replace a few essentials and instead of going to Sephora (almost 4 months since my last purchase!), I thought I would try some new-to-me drugstore alternatives to save some money. Here’s how much I saved vs. what I would have bought at Sephora:
NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Espresso: $11.99 vs. ABH Brow Wiz in Dark Brown: $27.00
NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Black: $11.99 vs. ABH Brow Wiz in Ebony: $27.00
NYX Black Matte Liquid Liner: $9.99 vs. KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper: $25.00
NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray: $9.99 vs. KVD Lock ’N Load Makeup Setting Mist: $30.00
Could have spent: $109
Only spent: $43.96
I’ve said it before, but I love a good face mask. I don’t have the time or money to go to a spa regularly (or at all really), so I love finding products that give me a bit of that same relaxing feeling in the comfort of my own home. I wrote awhile ago about my current favourite hydrating mask which is also by The Body Shop (the British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask), but I also need to exfoliate regularly so I was excited to try their Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask.
