Beauty Bargain Hunting...

Is it just me or do all your beauty essentials seem to run out at the same time?
Although these must-haves might not be pricey individually, when you have to buy a handful of things at once, it can easily add up. So when I began to run low on a few things lately I thought I'd give some cheaper alternatives a go.

NYC All Day Long Smooth Skin foundation - £3.99 from Superdrug  
NYC Showtime Volumising Waterproof Mascara - £1.99 from Superdrug
2true Effortless Waterproof Eyeliner - £1.99 from Superdrug
Superdrug Vitamin E Skincare SPF 15 Moisturising Day Cream - £2.99 from Superdrug

A new foundation, mascara, eyeliner and moisturiser for less than £11 isn't bad at all. So I'm going to give these a go in my everyday routine and see how we get along. I don't expect miracles from cheaper brands but fingers crossed for some good results! 

Let me know if you've tried any of these and what you thought, or if there's any other cheaper brands you'd recommend!



  1. i really love this moisturiser. When I ran out of it I switched to a more expensive one and it was rubbish, so I'm definitely going to be repurchasing this. Have you tried other stuff from the vitamin e line? I love pretty much all of it. They all the smell the same, its weird.. even the body scrub :S x

  2. I absolutely love it too. It's rich without being greasy and sinks into the skin really well and I completely agree, I think it's brilliant not only because of it's price but is equally good if not better than pricier ones out there.
    I haven't tried the other stuff but hopefully will pick up the night cream and face scrub when I'm next in Superdrug :) Are there any you'd recommend from the range? x
