6 Budget Friendly Beauty Buys!

I like luxury brands as much as the next gal but more often than not I can’t seem to squeeze them into my budget. Also when I find a product that works just as well if not better why not buy the cheaper option, right!?! So the following are a few of my favourite budget friendly beauty buys that are not only a bargain but work for me too!

Full Sized Brush Set from MakeupNet – A Review


all brushes
MakeupNet sent me this nifty little brush set to review. It contains 15 different brushes for eye and face use and I would recommend this set to those trying to start their brush collection.

brushface1Four  of the brushes in the set are for the face. A large powder brush, a blush brush, a small face brush great for highlighting or contouring and a fan brush for light blush or bronzer application, plus a small lip brush. The face brushes aren’t the softest I’ve tried (by no means the roughest either) but they are ok for the price and the real gems in the set are some of the eye brushes.

The eye brushes that I found the most handy are the spooley, eyebrow and lash groomer, small, medium and large shadow brushes, large angled brush, and the eyebrow/ liner brush. There is also a sponge brush (I’ve never liked these for shadow application) and two small brushes that look similar to the lip brush, I’m unsure what these are for exactly but found them great for placing shadow on the lower lash line, waterline or a larger lip brush. The three shadow brushes are great for packing on colour over a small or larger area and the large angled brush us great for crease work. rest brushes
The only two brushes kind of missing in this set in my opinion would be a pointy eyeliner brush and a large fluffy blending brush. Other than that your pretty much set for eye brushes if your a beginner.

The set retails at $25.99 (AUD) and I think is a bargain for 15 brushes (around $1.75 each!), even if I only really love some of them!

I used these brushes in my "Who Said Neutrals Can’t Be Dramatic" Tutorial so you can see how well they work for yourself.

All in all I would say thee are some misses in the set but some hits as well and at this price you really cant go wrong. It even comes in a handy brush roll.
