Supermarket chic

The weekly shop isn't exactly a glamorous trip, however, with more and more supermarkets increasing their beauty department, it's becoming less of a chore (especially if you can pass off a purchase on the joint account).

What has also excited me is that supermarkets are producing their own brands, and the lovely George at Asda ladies have sent me a selection to try out.

My absolute favorite item has to be Shimmer Me Brush on Powder in Cupid. I was worried that it was going to be far to sparkley and OTT, however, this cute brick bronzer added just enough shimmer to my cheek bones. £4.50/10g

I also tried their Ultra Sheer Foundation in Ivory Beige, which suited my skin tone well. Its not the most velvety soft foundation I've ever used, but it applied well and smells expensive! £5/30ml

I love Cheeky Tint in Rose which reminds me of Benefits Benetint, a stain for lips and cheeks and at £3.50/8ml an absolute steal!
The light and non-sticky Get Glossy in Cheeky Chops is a slightly sparkely red lip gloss, which will be perfect for the winter months. £3.75/5ml

I also had a play with a couple of their Velvet Eyeshadows, again, I was expecting a cheap, synthetic feeling product, but the shadows are soft and last all day. I liked lining my eyes with the pink Punk Rocker and silver Disco shades. £2.50/5g

I must sound like such a snob, but I was really expecting cheap and nasty product that were overly sparkely and sticky and I really was pleasantly surprised - and at the prices, a guilt free splurge.

Think I might be offering to go shopping without the boy more often... x
