My War Paint

So a couple of months ago I dabbled in a little budget beauty range from Superdrug.

The range is called 2True and it is 3 pieces for only £5 I had needed a new clear nail varnish just for dabbing on ladders in my tights and as it was so cheap I had a little try of most of the things on the shelves. My eye was drawn to two cheek tints, I had previously tried and liked the used by so many posie and benetints but due to budget had not invested in my own. Which is why I liked the look of these:


Excuse my stylishly chipped nails! So the light pink may look very electric and yes it does go on the skin this bright...

But once you rub it in right along your cheek bones and put a nice dollop of the darker benetint alike stain on the apples of the cheek-it really does work into a lovely stay all day blush. I have used these everyeday since I got them and they are incredible value for money, great for beauty in a hurry and have good staying power.

A definite Rave Review!


Have to draw your attention to the sheen on my lips here as it is another newbie to my routine that I am loving. So in our popular high street pharmacy they always do deals so when ever you spend over £5 on anything you get a £5 voucher free for Ruby and Millie or NO7 cosmetics, I love this deal as I always use it to top up my make up brush collection! But this time I decided I wanted something different so had a look at the Ruby and Millie lipsticks on offer and plumped for the shade Purple. It is deliciously smooth and moisturising to put on and gives your lips a subtle but definite light sheen. I like many am forever on the hunt for the perfect pale nude lipstick but with so many I cannot just slick them on sans mirror as it can end up cakey or far to pale! But this one is really perfect and different to just a normal nude!

It ended up costing me £6 since I had a voucher, I even went back for another one to carry with me.

Not the best swatch in the world but it was really hard to catch the lovely colour in the light!

Great budget beauty for a Tuesday!

  3. Great find on the cheek tints! I can't believe you get $5 for spending $5! I know yours are pounds but I don't know how to type that on my good ol' American keyboard! lol.
