It's that time of the month again where most people go from feeling they're rich on payday to not so flush when all of the direct debits leave the account! If there is still something left and you fancy treating yourself, I have four great products for four budgets to share with you today.
Under €10/£10: Catrice has been in Ireland and in a lot of mainland Europe countries for a while but has just arrived in the U.K. and is sold on Justmylook.com. This brand offers amazing quality at unbeatable prices. I have reviewed some products on the blog previously but have to mention the Light Correcting Serum Primer. When I saw Chloe Boucher using this in one of her tutorials, I knew I had to try it. It has a very watery consistency and a pipette dispenser. The drops can be used as a primer to add some glow or mixed with body lotion to highlight the collar bone and shoulders. I personally apply a hydrating primer and then use these drops as a glow-giving primer before applying foundation as they aren't necessarily hydrating and I need a hydration boost before applying my base. They give the skin a very 'lit from within' look without looking overly pearlescent or like a discoball. This primer is super affordable and a little goes a long way.
€10/£10 - €30/£30: New to the market are the Mugler Perfuming Brushes and I particularly love Aura. Compact - perfect for travelling or popping in your handbag, these brushes contain a gel perfume that feels refreshing on the skin and means you can't go overboard with your scent. You just twist the brush and apply to pulse points. It doesn't feel at all sticky, despite the gel texture and is easy to top up discreetly. Bonus points for the sleek metallic packaging!
€30/£30 - €50/£50: I burn candles all year round but I particularly can't resist in Autumn/Winter when the dark evenings draw in and I want to make my house feel cosy. Elm Rd. is a relatively new home fragrance brand that aims to connect scents with the mind for well-being benefits. Scent is a very evocative sense and the brand have created 100% natural blend (and vegan friendly) scents based on memories of travels around the world. They stock reed diffusers, votives and candles, which start at £15. This candle is priced at £34, with a burn time of 60 hours. There are currently five scents available and I have Petals, which combines Tuberose, Jasmine and Ylang Ylang. I could smell the candle before I even opened the box, yet it isn't overwhelming. When lit, the soft floral fragrance fills the room and it lingers even when not lit. This would make a fab gift for ay candle lover.
€50/£50 +: I've admired Jodie Wood's style for quite a while (check out her Instagram here) so I was delighted when she teamed up with Crystals & Co. to release her own line of jewellery. I've wanted some Evil Eye jewellery for a few years but the Monica Vinader range is pretty expensive and I also didn't want to buy something cheap that might tarnish quickly. This range is exactly what I had been waiting for. All of the products in the line are 14K gold over sterling silver and are reasonably priced without the compromise on quality. My husband bought me the Evil Eye Cut Out necklace, which I adore. The chain is adjustable from 15-18 inches, which is perfect for everyday wear and although dainty, it doesn't feel flimsy. Next on my list is the Love Necklace to layer with what I already have but to be honest, I love the whole range! If you're looking for some new jewellery that is great quality but isn't extortionately priced, then check out this range. Plus it's great to support a small business. I hope this won't be Jodie's last collection!
Have any of these products caught your eye? I'd love to hear!
