Catrice And Essence Buys For Under €20

This morning, I found myself in a bit of a pickle. I'm up in Dublin and didn't bring any makeup with me. I wasn't planning on going anywhere, just staying in the mammy's for the day. But sure enough, the plans changed and I needed a bit of makeup.
Luckily, the chemist up the road stocks two of my favourite budget brands - Catrice and Essence. On the shopping list was a foundation I could get use without needing a powder, a blusher, eye shadow, eyeliner, brow pencil, mascara and something to add a little colour to my lips.
Here's what I bought
L-R: Catrice All Matt Plus Shine Control Makeup, Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl, Essence Brow Pencil in Blonde, Essence Kohl Eyeliner in Black, Essence Single Eyeshadow in Metropolitan, Essence Silky Touch Blush in Adorable and Essence Glossy Lip balm in  Strawberry Cheesecake.
All this came to a grand total of €19! Bargain! So far I am loving the foundation. I've heard rave reviews about it and was curious.
Full views coming on these lovelies soon.
Have you used any of these products?

    1. Its amazing! I can see how people compare it to my beloved Teint Idole Ultra. In fact I may prefer it....

  3. Love both Catrice and Essence! Such good products for great prices! The blush looks like a lovely colour! :)

    1. Its a really pretty colour, some of the other colours looked a bit too dark for me.
