The Makeup: Wild About Beauty Splurge

I'll admit, it's a five week month and I'm bloomin' skint. I'm living off Sainsbury's pitta breads, spinach, bananas and baked beans - why? The last of my money may or may not have been spent on the above items from Wild About Beauty. "May have"? Okay, so they totally were...

The Multi Purpose Tint in Lynne and Cream Eyeshadow in 03 Buster had been on my wish list for a very very long time, and in a moment of depression over being poor I spotted them on Debenhams with a nice little discount and free delivery. Before I knew it my hand slipped over the checkout button and a few days later these landed on my desk. Regrets? Thankfully no, it's all about the Wild About Beauty love over here ladies.

Lynne is a pigmented multi purpose tint which gives a lovely natural flush to the cheeks - I know a lot of people prefer this on the lips, but for me this works really well blended in to the cheeks on days where I want to keep things dewy and fresh, but without shimmer. The cream shadow in the shade 03 Buster is a gorgeous light golden bronze shadow. Far lighter and more subtle than my current creamy number 1 - the Estee Lauder Stay on Shadow Paint in Chained - but is a nice alternative if I want to play things down a little. It's staying power is no where near as good as Estee Lauders little pot of heaven and it's no where near as pigmented, but seeing as I picked this up for around £10 less, I'm more than willing to over look this.

Luckily I won the online makeup purchase roulette this month and have added these two to the daily makeup stash, but I won't lie, I'm really looking forward to treating myself to some M&S strawberries come payday morning.

  8. I definitely get the "choosing makeup over a meal" scenario. Sometimes I just can't say no ! Glad to see I'm not the only one

  9. Totally worth it. They really suit you!


  10. The fact that there is a Cream Eyeshadow with the name Buster has automatically made me add this to the list. On far too much of an Arrested Development kick not to invest in something as gorgeous as this with that name. Looks beautiful on you!
