£15 Makeup Challenge

Hi there,

As I mentioned in my last post I recently visited London. Me and my sister have been doing this trip once a year since we were old enough to go by ourselves. This year we decided to do a £15 Makeup Challenge. The rules were simple:

  • Get as many things from the list (that will follow) as possible. You’re not allowed to excess the agreed limit of £15.
  • You have to buy from at least three different brands
  • Find as good products as possible. If you’ve tried a brand before and find it crap, don’t buy it just to check a point of the list.

Find as many products you can from the list:

  • Foundation
  • Concealer
  • Powder
  • Bronzer
  • Highlighter
  • Blush
  • Mascara
  • Eyeliner
  • Something for eyebrows
  • Eyeshadow
  • Lipstick/Lipgloss/Lip pen

(I’ve dropped the list we wrote, but I think that was everything)

We went to do our challenge at Superdrug, since we found that was the best place for this challenge. I must say we did quite good. Unfortunately I never got a picture of what I bought for my sister, but I have one of what she got me.

Makeup challenge

As you can see, Makeup Academy is really dominating this challenge. Not surprising, since it’s a cheap brand and we’ve been really happy with the eye shadow palettes we got last year. She managed to get almost everything on the list. The only things missing is mascara, products for eyebrows and highlighter. (All though, she thought it through and got me an eyeshadow palette with a white shimmery colour that could be used as a highlighter). Neither of us bought mascaras and that was almost agreed in advanced. My boyfriend has bought me quite a few high end mascaras, so I probably wouldn’t use a mascara that was cheap enough to fit in this challenge. She has really straight eyelashes and uses one special mascara that she has find works for her, so she wouldn’t use a mascara I could find either so we used the money for better purposes. Now that I’ve taken my pictures of all these things I’m excited to start trying them out!

Have you done this challenge? Did you find a favorite drugstore product by doing it? Have you tried any of these products? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

    • Haha, I’d trust her with my life! But for this challenge I wouldn’t mind her going all crazy either. Since I work with makeup I’m open to try pretty much everything. I’m really happy about her choices though :) xx
