Top Cosmetic’s Companies for quality and affordability


Hello my beautiful people, today I have been looking at some of the amazing budget buys that are out there at the moment, there are so many to chose from. Let’s see who have made my top bargain cosmetics companies so you know exactly where to go to get yours:
NYX cosmetics – matte lipsticks and Lip creams are great, they are matte but without drying your lips, I have had some pretty bad reactions to some matte lipsticks but these have amazing staying power without any horrible side affects.

Elf cosmetics – Love this company, eyes, lips, face have an amazing amount of different products to choose from, and guess what?? Some items start from as little as of items under £3.

Coastal scents – This company has grown in popularity due to their lovely cruelty free perfumes, every single item I have purchased has smelt absolutely amazing.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics – find OCC at Sephora, who doesn’t like a look through the total beauties Sephora has to offer so here, have another excuse to go in, check out OCC and the amazing products they have to offer at really affordable price’s, you will not be disappointed.
Essence cosmetics – one of my total fave’s.  This is a  European brand with great gel eyeliners and pastel eye shadows, I am a big fan of pretty much everything though!!  I love the blusher, the foundation, some items may not be as long lasting as the high-end products but that is the only critique I have, and for something that can be bought at the fraction of the price of the high-end stuff then that’s a downside I can deal with.

Physicians formula – Another company that has recently grown in popularity due their products, there are no harsh chemicals in their products making them ideal if you have sensitive skin

2B Colours – This is a newish brand from Europe, you can find them at ULTA.  I have not used any of the products by this company so I am taking a bit of a punt here and risking a bit of back lash since I am recommending a company product I have not used, but, the reviews I have read are amazing, they are a company with really great morals and the price’s of the products are what I like to call affordable quality, if you have used them then please leave a comment and share your experience!!

Barry M – good old Barry M great lipsticks from £3.  I think I own about 50 of the nail varnishes, then there is the ever famous Barry M glitter pots that no make up bag is complete without. A really great company who create great products at amazingly great price’s. What more can you ask for??

Bh Cosmetics – I absolutely  love their 88 colour tropical shimmer palette for only £11.95!! And have great deals on make up brushes too. This is my go to place if I am looking for something specific, or for a good big item to update my makeup bag with, there are always great palette’s available, full of the most on trend shades, and for a great price.

Bourjois – another of my fave, I own a few Bourjois products, their matte lipsticks are also amazing, they do not dry out my lips, they look amazing and last forever.  They also do really great mascara, eyeliner and blusher.  You can find Bourjois pretty much any where, from Superdrug and Boots to your local Lloyds Pharmacy, its a really popular brand, another I like to call affordable quality.

Also check out trendslove for promo codes for all of the above, also all of the above sold at sephora or ULTA.

If there are any companies that you think deserve to be on the list above then please leave a comment and let me know who they are and why your a fan.



Arbonne award winning mascara review

Hello beautiful people. Today I am reviewing a mascara that I was kindly sent to review. The very beautiful Emma Bundy contacted me via Facebook and had read my blog. She asked if I would review a couple of items and I excitedly accepted. Emma is a rep for Arbonne, a make up company who pride themselves on using the best and most natural ingredients in their make up. A little more about Emma and the company later but right now let’s get down to their products.

The Items I was sent were a hand cream, a primer and an award winning mascara.

I have tried all three items but have decided to give my finding in three Separate blog posts.

I love mascara and it’s the one item of make up I wear even on a no make up day. If my eyebrows and lashes are sorted then I am confident to go about my day proudly.

The mascara’s wand has comb like teeth which ensures that every last little lash has been grabbed and covered in the thick, rich black formula.

I totally see why this mascara has won an award. My lashes were instantly longer. And with a little rub of the wand on the ends of my lashes they were made much longer that even my partner (who didn’t notice when I died my hair from blonde to pink) noticed my eyelashes. Here is a pic of my lashes after I had applied the “it’s a long story” Arbonne mascara.

I am going to do a full blog post on this company, about its products and of course blog posts on all of the other products I received.

Have you heard of TAMBEAUTY.COM – make up revolution and I heart make ups created a master piece!!!!!!

unnamed makeup-rev

So, what is this masterpiece then??

Today I received an E – Mail which had some amazing news in it. It was from a site called TAMBEAUTY.COM

So who are TAMBEAUTY.COM??

TAMBEAUTY.COM is a brand new website. make up revolution and I heart make up have teamed up and created a brand new site that stocks these following brands:

  • Make up Revolution
  • I heart Make Up
  • Freedom
  • Faceb4
  • Colourless Hair Colour Remover
  • DGJ Organics
  • Kate Price
  • Frizz Free


So what make s it so awesome??

Well where do I start!! The offers that they have available are awesome. They are extremely affordable. For example right now you can get the Make up Revolution Colour Blocks Propaganda which consists of a lipstick, a lip gloss and a nail polish all in bright red for only £2.00, I know that is an amazing deal. You can buy hair care products, cosmetics, Brushes and Tools, Skincare this really is a great little website that they have created, and it still has their trademark affordability factor.


I had another little look around the special offers they had available and this is what I found:
Free delivery on orders over £30
50%, 30% off
An overall wide selection of discounted products.

The Hair Care Range
One of the most popular hair care products that this lovely website stocks is the Colourless range. If it had not been for this product I know of a few ladies who would have had a full blown breakdown. This great product removes semi – permanent as well as permanent hair dye, on the box its sub heading is” just wash your colour away” and that’s exactly what happens, this is an absolute hero when you have had a DIY Hair disaster. You can get this for only £6.66 RRP £9.99.
We also have the ColourOn Range which are a range of toners, you can chose from a few different colours that will give you that very on trend pastel effect. You can pick this up on their site for £4.66 RRP £6.99.
And then we have the DGJ Organics range and live love range of shampoos and conditioners that range from £4.99 – £6.99.

The Brushes
I love, love,love a brush, I used to use my fingers and thought that brushes were just silly, and wondered what the big deal was with every ones obsession. Well I got a pack of 10 cheap brushes from ebay and that was me hooked. There are brushes for everyone and the I heart make up brush sets are my favorite, they are adorable they come in three different colours and with the cutest names, my personal favorite is the Unicorns Unite, you get three brushes in the set, a powder brush with two smaller brushes that could be used for eye shadow or highlighter. There are a variety of more expensive brushes, that look beautiful. The most expensive of the brushes is the Make Up Revolution Ultra Metals set which consists of five good brushes that are all shaped for the perfect application and contouring. These will set you back £34.95.


The Rest and Overall Thoughts
They also have a small range of face wash, and moisturizers, along with hand wash and hand creams that range from £4.00 to £14.99. They really do have something for everyone. With their products having such an amazing affordability factor you can easily pick yourself up a whole skin care regime for half the price of some high street retailers. As well as these ranges you can obviously get your hands on the very on trend eyeshadow palettes that Make Up Revolution are famous for, you can pick up the Fortune Favours The Brave palette which consists of 30 beautiful colours for only £9.99. There are even cheaper high volume palettes available such as the Make Up Revolution Iconic 3 palette for only £4.00, this is the cheapest palette available on the site and consists of twelve again very beautiful colours.

Eye shadow palettes are not all that you will find in their make up category you can find anything and everything you can think of that is on trend and on pint as the moment. That is in my opinion why this website is going to do so well, even though the cosmetics and hair/face care ranges are all very affordable they are still very on trend, all of the colours in their palettes are carefully selected. They do skimp on the quality which is unusual, as most of the time when I purchase a mega cheap product I find that it is either outdated or the quality is poor, with this website, that is most definitely not the case.

They have the most on trend lipsticks ranging from the ever growing in popularity matte lipsticks to lip gloss. You can even pick up a whole collection, five lipsticks for a fiver!!

There are also primers, brighteners, highlighters and setting sprays to chose from, and at the moment you are getting your items delivered directly to your door free of charge on any orders over £30, and these prices you can get yourself an amazing little haul for that price.
