'Time for another favorites post. This time I want to talk about my favorite budget toppers for Spring/ Summer 2012. So here we go.'
'First thing I'll always come back to, is the bodybutter from Dutch drugstore Kruidvat. It last me a good long time, contains 250ml, and I'll pay only €2,50. I can choose from different scents, wich smells absolutely divine.
Another item I always rebuy, is my lipbalm from Yves Rocher. Yves Rocher recently changed the packaging of their lipbalms, but they are still €2,50 for catalogue price. Sometimes I can buy these with an discount, so it is not so bad.
Then I recently discovered also an cleansingmilk by ByPhasse, wich you can buy at the Dutch Op=Op Voordeelshop. For 500ml with pump, I paid only €2,25. It makes my skin soft and it doesn't irritate my skin. Great product.'
'An item wich always come back too, are the Catrice Ultimate Laquers. I collect them for at least 3 years now. Coverage is great, it last pretty well, doesn't stain, and there are loads of colors to choose from. You can find my entire collection <here>. I only pay €2,50 for a bottle, and sometimes my local drugstores gives buy one get one free, so that will make my day for sure.
The other things from Catrice I love, are their Colourshow Lipsticks and Colourshow Lipglosses. The lipsticks smells like candy wich I like, great coverage, and is very creamy. The lipglosses aren't sticky at all, have an great pigmentation, and smells good too. The Colourshow Lipsticks are €3,99, the Colourshow Lipglosses are €3,79.'
'Two- three years ago I wasn't an huge fan of the Max Lipsticks, wich I bought at the Action. The Action is an store wich also sells stationery, clothes, underwear, garden stuffies, hobby stuffies and tools. Now I must say that these lipsticks are defenately improved. They are much creamier, but the thing wich is most improved was their colorrange. I can choose between more finishes instead only the frost variants. Paid €0,89 for two in a package, a real steal for trying new colours. Favorite colors: Purple Pink, Pink Blush, Peach, Terra and Retro Red. You can find swatches <here>.'
'I also like the ELF Eyelidprimer. They are only €1, or $1, depending in wich country you purchase it. ELF has an site for every country where you can order from.
And last but not least, I love my Sleek Eyeshadow Palettes till dead. These shadows are so pigmented, easy to blend, and it last me a very long time on the lids. Those palettes are around €7,95- €9, depending on where you buy them. Seems not to be (under) €5, but each palette contains 12 colors.'
