|Total cost = £1.47: What a bargain!|
I have previously mentioned I am meant to be adhering to a spending ban (something that's even more important now I've booked a solo, end-of-March Amsterdam trip on my credit card!), and so I knew I couldn't spend a great deal on myself.
However, I decided I would allow myself to buy a couple of the Intense Colour MUA eyeliner pencils I have wanted for a while, since they retail for just a £1 each.
|MUA Intense Colour eyeliner pencils: 'White' and 'Turquoise'|
Sleek 'Twist Up' eye pencils
|Just 49p each!|
|I don't know why my coffee table is so scratched, hmmm...|
I've been meaning to try some Sleek products for a while and these bargain pencils provided a perfect opportunity!
The twist-up action works well, and I love the vivid colour of each. I was particularly impressed with the white one, since this colour doesn't often translate well in makeup products in my experience.
|The white looks silver...but it is white, I promise!|
GOSH Trio eyeshadow (TR15 'Sense')
|Also only 49p!|
My favourite shadow of the three is definitely the pearlescent, peach-white at the bottom - it's really shimmery, yet subtle.
|You can see I've used the bottom shadow a couple of times already.|
|These eyeshadows could be used together to create a gorgeous, smoky eye aesthetic.|
It's worth noting that both of the Sleek pencils and the GOSH eyeshadow trio were fully sealed - I would never buy open makeup products. Ew.
I'm looking forward to experimenting with these items more soon - I think the white Sleek pencil will work well to make my inner eye area 'pop', while 'Sea Blue' should compliment my blue Barry M shimmer dusts.
