Cheap Stuff, Great Results

21 Jun

We often have the idea that we need the most expensive creams and exclusive make-upitems to really see results.

And although not all bling is bad, still you have to realize that the prices are often that high because of the fancy packaging and the campaigns with million dollar-topmodels.

I love to treat myself to something exclusive from time to time, but in the end, I keep on being faithful to a list of cheap classics.

My favourites:

1. NIVEA cream: A classic! I mainly use it when I have really dry legs or during winter to protect my hand from the cold.

2. BE Perfect&Reflect Highlighter Pen: A new kid in town, and I'm liking it already. Especially for softer highlighting.

3. HEMA Eyebrow Gel: Loving this product! It keeps your eyebrows in place all day ànd ads a dash of colour! Comes in different colours for a correct shade of brow.

4. DIADERMINE Bi-Phase Express Oogreinigingslotion: This gentle, oily eye make-upremover is my favourite. My waterproof mascara comes off immediately without having to rub too aggressively.

5. Bio-Oil: I use this oil against scaring, stretch marks or after I did a full body-scrub, to keep everything moisturized. It's like miracle oil. I can't live without it!

7. H&M Fake Lashes: Unless you're into fake lashes with added diamonds and in crazy shapes, these H&M lashes will surely do the trick. So no need to spend half of your beauty budget on high-end ones.

9. THE BODY SHOP shimmering Cubes: I use these already for as long as I know and they-re still a basic in my personal make-upkit. During the day apply them with a dry brush, for a subtle effect. At night, use it with a wet brush, for more intense pigmentation.

    Is die Highlighter Pen van BE dan te gebruiken zoals de Touche Eclat?

    • Sabine Peeters 28/06/2014 at 8:04 AM #

      Yes! Hij is ietsje minder dekend dan de touche éclat, maar licht net zo mooi op. xxx

    Great idea to make a post like this! I love the Maybelline mascara there, but I don’t use the waterproof. I’ll have to try some of these other products!
