Budget Sunday

This should have been a budget mothers day gift guide, but I couldn't post it on time. So that's why we're doing a little budget sunday today!

I got the Speed Star Ultra Volume Mascara, but I'm not a big fan of it. It's dry and didn't do anything for my lashes, so I didn't make a photo with it, there are better budget mascara's.
But let's do a more in depth (still little) review of the other products!

Highlighting Powder

These highlighters are my absolute favorites of these products. The pigmentation is good and they blend out well. The formula is a bit powdery though, although I'm not complaining for the price. There aren't big shimmers in it, so it gives a nice glow. This is a real budget steal, especially considering these only cost €3,99. Kaching!

Supreme Fusion Lipsticks

The Supreme Fusion lipsticks are creamy and feel soft on the lips. ReNUDE Your Lips is a very subtle nude shade and Tie The Apri-Knot has a coral/red hue. Very spring/summery, these would have been a good pick for mothers day -or just to surprise her anytime- because of the velvety finish. (I know my mom doesn't like dry lipsticks or matte finishes.)

Luxury Nudes

I got two shades of the Luxury Nudes nail polish collection. The first one is quite original! It has a soft matte finish and a very pretty pink/blue color. The second brown/nude shade has a shiny finish. The brush is quite thick and works well, but does take up a lot of product, so be careful with that.

Speedstar Ultra Volume Mascara Waterproof (€4,59)
Highlighting Powder in 010 Stardust and 020 Champagne Campaign (€3,99)
Supreme Fusion Lipstick in 010 ReNUDE Your Lips and 040 Tie The Apri-Knot (€4,99)
Luxury Nudes in 11 Hidden & Forbidden Rose and 04 Your Fresh Apri-Coat (€2,89)

The highlighters and nail polishes have definitely surprised me in a good way. A full Catrice look (a lipstick, mascara, nail polish and highlighter) costs you only €16,49 - good to keep in mind for upcoming birthdays.

What do you think about these budget products?

Love, Rani
