Did I really just spend that much on make-up??

£45 to be exact.
Well, no not technically. I definitely could not justify spending that much money on two (yes only two) bits of makeup.
I had a Debenhams voucher for Christmas but hadn't got round to spending it, and seeing as none of the clothes on the website took my fancy, I saw it as a chance to treat my face to some expensive slap that I would otherwise never allow myself to buy.
I hear people raving about Benefit all the time and have only tried my friends High Beam highlighter before so browsing through the products, this little beauty caught my eye....
Benefit's Confessions of a Concealaholic (which is exactly what I am).
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am obsessed with constantly trying to cover up my dark circles and as of yet have not found anything that really does the trick.
Now I am a beauty on a budget girl so it is drugstore brands that fill my make-up bag and at £28.50 this will be the most expensive piece of make-up I own. But I feel that I will be able to test the theory of more money = better quality...... I'm still sceptical but we'll have to wait and see.
I chose this set because it has little bits of all the Benefit concealers so rather than forking out £20 for one  item (which may not work), I decided for an extra £8 I could test them all.

My next purchase, I've heard a lot of hype about in the blogging world, so I thought I would give it a try.
Bare Minerals foundation. I chose a six-piece starter kit to see how I like it.....

This set is only £15 which I thought wasn't too bad seeing as one normal size pot of foundation is over £20. I like the idea of mineral foundation but am intrigued as to how much coverage just powder can really give without making me look cakey.

I'm secretly hoping I don't like these products because if I do I could find myself broke at the end of every month....

  1. haha i so know what you mean! I got hooked on an estee lauder foundation about a year ago and now can't do without it, it's pricey but worth it! As a result, i'm actively avoiding other expensive alternatives in the name of damage control haha! xxx p.s that benefit set does look tempting though! xxx

  2. oooh you've worried me even more now Clare!! haha. Who needs to eat as long as your face looks good eh?
