Essie Nail Swatches and review

Hey dolls!
Nails, Nails, Nails! 
When I did my autumn/fall haul, I mentioned I would do swatches of the nail polishes I bought. As promised, below are the swatches of the 3 Essie nail polishes I bought. This post is very much due considering the time I did that haul. These 3 colours are really pretty and the lasting power is immaculate (considering I do a lot of domestic work). In all the pictures below I applied 2 coats of the nail polishes
Footloose is a magenta colour

School of Hardrocks is a mixture of grey and olive in my opinion (perhaps a khaki colour?)

Pansy is a bright pink colour

Overall, I'm in LOVE with these nail polishes! I think I will be purchasing more of them in the future... I'm surprised that out of 3 of them, I love Pansy the most; this is unusual considering I am not a pink fan and have never bought a pink nail polish before (I decided to take a risk with these).

What is your favourite Essie nail polish colour?

Christmas Kisses ♥♥

Hey, Salut, Hello, Hola,Bonjour, Hi.
MERRY CHRISTMAS!! and a Happy New Year...
I've missed blogging and its been long a lot has happened!! How are you guys?
I finished the first term of UNI, We entered December meaning that the new year is about to come (bring on 2013), I, sadly, lost my job AND most of all ITS CHRISTMASS!!
So I haven't been blogging mostly due to having broken my camera, so I had to get a new one in order to update you lovely people with my on goings.

Right now, I'm sitting slumped from ALL the food and drink I ate, it has been a blessed day. Normally I do not even enjoy Christmas in this country (I find it a tad bit boring), however, my family were round and it just felt that much cosier and special. Alright, enough about my day, how was yours? I hope it was as special as mine?... This post is going to show you what face I wore today and the many different lippies you can also use (hence the title 'Christmas kisses').

Brow Fix-up

Hey sweeetieess!
If you did not know, I go university. The university I go to is quite a distance from home, which means I would have to find other places to fulfill my beauty needs. These include brow threading, nails and so forth. So lets relate this to the post title, well, I went to find a place to thread my brows as they were getting a tad bit messy. I FOUND ONE! It was in the market in a very tight place, which did not bother me too much as the one I go to at home is also in a market. To add excitement it was student day, meaning that the price went down to £2, as you can imagine I was literally leaping to sit down in that chair. She started, this was a lot less painful than the one I normally go to at home. I thought to myself how much better can this get, cheap prices, near to where I live and not even hurting me (usually I cry, an indication of whether or not the threader's technique is painful). BEAR IN MIND I told this woman I wanted thick brows (as I grew them out) and also showed her a picture of how I normally get them done. To cut a long story short, when I went to look in the mirror, after her 'miraculous' work, I nearly cried; This woman pretty much took of all my brows, left them non identical  and her work was just messy! She then had the audacity to tell me that my I never had much hair on my brows to begin with, as if she did not already insult me with her 'magical hands'.
Right is this a rant post or a tutorial post? Im getting to carried away.

(Top: How the lady threaded my brows
Centre: a little bit of tweaking (with a razor)
Bottom: Tea tree toner water (to remove any excess hair not needed)

So as you can see the top image is the abomination the lady called 'greatness'. They do not even look like they correspond, it literally looks like she was going for two different shapes when she was threading! The second image shows the result of me tweaking a bit. At this stage I did not get it exactly how I wanted it (which I rectified later), however, I got a shape. I then used the Lush tree toner water to take away any excess hair and also as I was going to be putting foundation, I used it as my base/primer.

(Left to right: Elf mist spray, Rimmel eyebrow pencil with brush and Brow)
Thereafter, I used the elf mist and set spray to help get my brows get tidy, with the assistance of the Rimmel eyebrow pencil brush.

(Left to right: Brow dried out, Brow lined)
At this point, I do not think I tweaked the left brow properly (looking at it from this point, the brow on the right) as it looks thicker than the other brow. However, that does not really matter depending on the density of the brow you are looking to go for and since I am going for thick, it would not even show. I do tend to line my brows , especially at times like the one presented, however, I do not do so all the time. Pretty much when I need to do so.

(Left to right: Brow filled in, Mary Kay concealer - Bronze 2, Brow cleaned up)
On this particular day, I was in a rush to go to work (as I was going to be late if not), so how I filled in my brows were slightly messy; apologies. The first image is of how I fill in my brows, normally the shape would already be there so I would need to use much brow pencil to fill it in. However, since this is a fix up and the shape I wanted was not visible without the pencil, I had to do more shading. 
With my normal brow routine I use two concealers. I forgot to take a picture of the second concealer (Sheer Cover duo concealer - Tan/Dark) I use, due to it being in a state which is not appealing to the naked eye. How do I use these concealers? The Mary Kay concealer is in fact my skin tone shade, so I would use it above my brow to blend in with my foundation and skin tone. I then use the Sheer Cover concealer below my brow to serve as a highlighter.

(Final results)
Okay so I may have got a bit excited with the end results as the first image I rushed my lipstick application to take a picture lol. The second image displays the final results of my brow fix-up; I must say it looks like I did not even have a brow problem at all... Was that a bit cheeky of me to compliment my skills?

Have you ever had a brow mishap?

Hey sweeeties
Well, I posted this picture on Facebook and my cousin loved it soo much she told me to do a blog post about it so she can 'copy that shit'; that was her exact words, so here it is.
At the moment I am really loving MAC Rebel (lipstick) and Bobbi Brown moisture rich foundation. I think they both compliment my face, and in regards to the foundation, there is no visible shine, YES! This foundation is healthier for the skin, as opposed to using thicker foundations; as it is light and gives a glow to the skin. Have you noticed that my description of this foundation sounds more like a moisturising tint? Yes, well that is because, the whole time, I actually thought this was a moisturising tint as opposed to a foundation.
I wore this face to a christening and received quite a few compliments, mostly on how flawless my skin tone looked. My face may look a tad bit shiny but that because of the flash from the camera I used, and not the actual foundation.

- Lush tea tree toner
- Dermalogica oil control lotion
- Bobbi Brown Moisture rich foundation - Almond
- MAC MSF - Deep Dark

- Sleek face contour/highlight kit - Dark
- Sleek limited edition Caribbean collection blush - Aruba

- Elf makeup mist and set
- Body shop Carbon eye definer - Brown
- Mary kay concealer - Bronze 2
- Sheer cover duo concealer - Tan/Dark

- HighTech instant lash extender mascara - Black

- Nyx auto lip liner - Plum
- MAC lipstick - Rebel

The hair was curled using the Remington pearl curling wand
- Silvikrin hairspray - Natural hold

Hey dolls!
This is really bad of me, this post has been sitting in my drafts for almost a week now! I have already installed this which I will post a picture of below.
From the title of the post, you already know what I will be talking about, my new hair! I wanted new hair, a new look; I wanted hair that is long lasting, I tried Brazilian Virgin Hair, however, I just did not think it sat well with me. I wanted something more thicker, something more lush... I came across Peruvian Virgin Hair.
(Top image: Peruvian hair in packaging
Bottom image: Peruvian hair out of packaging)

I bought this hair from Hair Extensions Fashion, in lengths 14, 16 x 2 and 18 inches, I must admit I did not want to buy long lengths as I have been feeling shorter lengths lately (which is making me contemplate on cutting my own hair) BUT, I thought to myself if I'm going to be spending a huge amount on just hair, I might as well make it worth my money! Initially, I wanted to get straight hair, however, as they sold out of the straight hair (and I was in desperate need of hair) I ended up going with the body wave. I have to say I am not a huge fan of curly/wavy hair and I will explain why at the end of this post.
My first impressions of this hair is that it is gorgeous! This hair definitely surpassed my expectations of how this hair would look like. However, the 18 inch looks as though it is in fact 16 inches, I did contact  the company about this and their response was that if I were to stretch the hair I would notice the difference. I mean, should there not be a visible difference? Instead of going through so much trouble stretching and trying to measure the hair! Anyways, sizing put aside, this hair is just lush! The quality of the hair is superb and most importantly this hair is just thick (which is a plus as I like full looking hair); If I knew it would have been this thick I would have ordered 3 bundles!

(Left to right: hair drying with no flash, hair drying with flash)

I do tend to wash hair before I wear them, as you can see from the picture above. Why? It is because they come with a certain scent that I do not really like, so washing and conditioning it will leave it smelling better. I noticed that when you wash wavy, even though the waves stay, they stretch out. This made me slightly regret washing it as I wanted the 'first installed' look as opposed to the 'second installed' look it left me with.

(Left to right: sealed weft up close, the process of sealing wefts)

After I washed the hair and let it dry overnight, I went on to seal the wefts. The weft sealer was bought from a hair shop called SHABA (Mr loverman SHABA - whenever I go this shop I'm reminded of this song). I decided to seal my wefts this time round as the last hair I bought I did not seal and it shed so badly that ,after the second wear, pretty much nothing was left! However, this is not an easy job; I had to seal one side, wait 30 minutes before doing the opposite side. Being that I am clumsy, the weft sealer got everywhere! After it dried, I noticed the wefts were much harder which made it harder to sew, this may make me find an alternative to the weft sealer I bought .. .One of my colleagues from work mentioned that she uses fray stopping spray, I might consider that when I next buy hair. Plus, I hear it is cheaper than weft sealer.

(Left: back of installment
Right top:  side of installment right bottom: Middle part/front of installment)
Yesss I got the hair installed in a middle part style. As you can tell from the picture, the hair does not look much wavy. Why? Well that is because I roughly straightened the hair as when I got it installed I looked like a lion having a bad hair day! Moral of the story is that I should have stuck to installing just 3 bundles, instead of insisting that my aunt should try and fit all four bundles in.
Overall, I am in love with this hair and I should be keeping you posted on all the different hair styles I plan to do with it!

So I did say that I would tell you why I do not like curly/wavy hair:
- It gets bushy quicker than straight hair
- More tangles and shedding
- It is more likely to get the 'old' look in due time as opposed to straight hair
- Sometime, it does not blend in well with your hair
I think that is all the reasons as to why I do not like wavy/curly hair, but desperate circumstances calls for desperate measures, hence, I now have wavy hair installed.

Will you be buying any type of virgin hair anytime soon?

Review: YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation

Hey beauties!

Hey, Hey, Hey...
Ever had a foundation that is too thick in consistency? Or a foundation that gives you spots? Or even a foundation that looks like you've 'caked' it on? Well here is your answer!

'A bold, unique formula to target shadowy areas and define contours. A magic light infused within a weightless fluid. A texture that has no mask-like effect. A formula free of opaque powders that evens the complexion and erases imperfections, enhancing the face’s natural features.
 With Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation, the skin is beautiful, natural and radiant. Custom-made to cast light on all the Saint Laurent people in the world.' - Feel Unique

'The light of Touche Éclat foundation targets shadowy areas and highlights the contours of the face. With no opaque powders, its perfecting texture evens the complexion and helps conceal your imperfections, while enhancing your skin’s natural beauty'. - Selfridges

Above I have given two descriptions, from two stores, of this foundation. They are fairly the same; both descriptions, having tried it, are precisely on point! Seriously, if you do not have this foundation, go and get it now! Before getting the one I did, I was torn between 2 shades as they were both similar in colour, however, I ended up going with BD70 which I am glad I did as it just looks flawless on the skin (pictured on the left picture of my header). Before this foundation, I was hooked on the Bobbi Brown moisturising tint as it was not heavy and gave me a natural look, however, when I first laid my hands on this bad boy, my gaaaard I just knew I was going to be buying this foundation. How can you not buy a foundation that does more good for you than bad?

-Light - so light it can be used in hot countries
-Gives a natural look 
-Blends well in with skin
-Oil-free; I have very oily skin and for a foundation to go all day with any oil show-ups/shine, you know that it is a great foundation
-Gel based - glides on so smoothly

-Pricing - at £28 I think this may be an unreasonable price for a foundation

Will you be buying this foundation?

My HUGE Autumn/Fall Haul..

Hey sweeties!
So its confirmed; I'm a shopaholic!! Its a disease that, sadly, has no cure.
Most of the items I am about to post were bought online, only a few were bought from the high street stores (I guess this is because on my way to lectures I walk past the BIG Luton shopping centre, TRUST me its very hard to resist buying AT LEAST one item!).
This haul will be including make-up, clothing, accessories and SHOES!!
Excuse the capital letters, for some reason I'm very excited to post this haul... maybe because it's my FIRST ever haul since I started this blog!!
These items have been all my shopping in the last two/three weeks; I just did not have the time to post them due to lectures and blah, blah, blah...

(Left to right: Wet N Wild Lipsticks: Don't Blink Pink, Purty Persimmon, 908c - Sugar Plum Fairy, 916d - Ravin Raisin and Dollhouse Pink.
MAC Lipsticks: Fresh Brew, Candy Yum Yum, Morange and Rocker)
The label matches the images as I could not coordinate the above images (packaging) to their open state (lipstick when opened); I hope you understand my rambling.
I actually ordered the wet n wild lippies in August, however, something happened with my order. These lipsticks did not actually arrive until the end of October!! Nonetheless, when they came I was very excited as I wanted a few cheaper alternatives to high end lipsticks; they are also MATTE, which I LOVE as my lips require matte lippies to look attractive LOL! Joking, they just tend to look bigger than usual when I apply sheeny lipsticks. I ordered the Wet n Wild lippies from BeautyJoint as I could now find a stockist here in the UK. Shipping was $10 so fairly reasonable.
The MAC lipsticks were all ordered from MAC. Fresh Brew was ordered by accident, I wanted Jubilee, however, ended up ordering Fresh Brew. Now I have both (as I ordered Jubilee straight after receiving Fresh Brew and realising it does not look the same as I saw in the store), but forgot to upload a picture of Jubilee; It would be uploaded in the lip swatches :)

(Left to right: Elf Studio Glossy & Glitter Glosses: Dragon fruit, Wild Watermelon,  Ruby Raspberry, Fucshia Fireworks, Muted Mauve and Merry Cherry.
Illamasqua Intense Lip gloss: Mistress.)
The ELF glosses were bought from the ELF website (If I'm correct, that's the only place you can actually buy them from). These glosses are soo pigmented! Want to wear something light and it not be lipstick? Well this is your answer! 
Mistress is a lovely colour; I have yet to try it but I will post it in the lip swatches when I do so! I bought it from Debenhams when they were on a sale. Muahahaha!

(Left to right: Emerald green flats - random shop; black boots - H&M; burgundy loafers & black flats - New Look; Houndstooth flats - H&M and nude wedges - New Look)
As soon as I saw these emerald green flats, I knew they would go perfectly with my green blazer (which I dumbly forgot to upload). Its a colour I wouldn't usually go for but its just a beautiful colour, its exerts so much sophistication paired with almost anything!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these boots! As you can tell from the picture it looks a bit worn out, that's because I've been wearing it since I got it! They are so comfi and easy to walk in. If I knew I would love them as much as I do, I probably would have bought 2 pairs.

(Left to right: Boob tube peplum dress, Midi bodycon dress & White shirt - ASOS, Purple cheetah dress - H&M)
I first saw the Mango boob tube peplum dress in a magazine, I was like 'Daaaaaaamn I needa get me one of those!'. After endless searching I could not find this dress, not even on the Mango website, so I gave up. One day I was browsing the internet (as I regularly do) and spotted it on ASOS; you know how it went, THE DEBIT CARD CAME OUT!

(Left to right: LUSH Bubblegum lip scrub & Tea tree water toner)
I have, forever, loved Lush products from their natural bath soaps, shampoo and facial care stuff. My cousin introduced me to the lip scrub (she had the limited edition one) and I fell in love. I was intrigued by the wonders it did for my lips; It left it feeling SO soft (I place emphasis on this product as it pretty much fulfills its purpose). An added bonus is that it smells so good; I mean its a lip product and near to your nose, so it has to have a pleasant smell in order for you to keep using it. Well this is a product that smell good almost good enough to eat #PhatGirlProblems.
Love, Love, Love the Tea Tree toner water. Honestly, about 2 weeks about I went to a club in Luton, having had problems with my oil T-zone in the past when I went out, I expected the worst at the end of the night, HOWEVER, that was not the case! At the end of the night my make up was going stronger than ever... You can use this under make up , after application or just when you want really (bare faced and then apply moisturiser), which ever float your boat honey bee.

(Left to right: Blazers: Forever 21 & H&M, Front of top and Back of top - H&M)
At first I didn't think much of this royal blue top BUT when I tried it on .. I fell in love with the back! The split thing it has going on is just sexy!

(Left to right: Tresemme liquid gold argan oil & Kim Kardashian perfume)
I love Tresemme products, so since superdrug were on a half price promotion for tresemme products I decided to get this for my hair. Original price: 6.99, Price bought: 3.49
If I'm honest, I'm not a huge fan of the Kardashians; All I have to say is Kim has outdone herself on this one! The aroma of this perfume is just lush. I do not think its a day time perfume, more so for a 'I want to be sexy tonight to attract his attention' type of night.

(Left to right: Elf mist and set spray; hypershine lipgloss - bubblegum; concealer - spice & toffee; studio powder brush; black liquid eyeliner; crease brush and blending wedges)

(Left to right: Essie nail polish - School of hard rocks, Foot loose and Pansy)
I was a bit skeptical about the whole ' pink suits darker skin tones', however, I decided to start by buying lipsticks and nail polishes (as I have never been into pink and do not own any pink clothing). My garddd ALL of it is true! I love the Essie nail polishes especially Pansy. I think it goes great with my skin tone and just looks like Candy floss. Stay tuned as I will soon be posting Nail swatches including these Essie nail varnishes.

(Navy lace top - Forever 21)

(Left to right: Top - Purple crochet crop jumper - Forever 21 and Coral hi-lo crop jumper - George
Bottom - Beige jumper dress - Primark, Maroon/Purple jumper dress - New Look and Burgundy Jumper - George
Jumpers, Jumpers, Jumpers..
As winter comes closer, I always realise my wardrobe is always full summer clothing; so this year I've decided to just stock up on all the jumpers I loved whilst shopping. When it comes to jumpers clothing (as you can see above) I do not really go for dark colours I'm one to pick up the brighter colours, I think black, white and grey are just dull colours and do not really show your personality much hence I go for the bright ones ;)

(All of these accessories are from Forever 21 except from the hand cuff - on the bottom row, which is from H&M)
I am a HUGE accessory hoarder; I love to wear colourful earrings that stand out. With hand jewellery I like to keep it simple with a statement piece that does not have much going on! In my opinion accessories make an outfit POP!  

(NARS foundation - Dark 2 Bernares)
The purpose of this purchase is to actually be used on holidays; those times when you want to wear a little something but do not want to wear a heavy foundation. As we are entering winter, it is a bit hard to test whether this foundation will work or not.

(Left to right: Houndstooth peplum top - ASOS and Houndstooth peplum top with checkered flats - H&M)

(Real techniques - core collection)
I always leave the best for last! This brush collection is by far the greatest investment I have made. I think that the quality of the brushes is worth the money I spent on it. As you can see above, I have already used them  and I believe it fulfills its purpose greatly. My favourite of the collection is the buffing brush, I just love how it helps with the application of my foundations.

I know I have posted a lot and I thank you for taking your time to read this post.

What have you bought this Autumn?

Thats that stuff I don't like..

Hey dolls!
So from the title you can guess what this post is about... I KNOW! Its way off from the concept of my blog (being all things beauty and fashion related), however, I wanted every month to have a random post which does not really relate to fashion or beauty. This topic has been a hot one on Youtube and a few bloggers' pages..
So here we are, it actually took me about a week to figure the things I actually do not like. The following really actually irritate me; I do not realise that they get under my skin until someone does it to me or it occurs; It ranges from beauty stuff, stuff I see on others or stuff people do to me.

1. You take my stuff without asking and continue to do until you're caught out - being at uni this ish happens sooo many times and you do not want to be irrational with them but you have got to warn them on this type of stuff!

2. HORROR movies! Im an absolute chicken when it comes to horror movies, I close my eyes throughout the whole movie which is a stupid thing when you pay money to watch that movie. BTW im forced to watch these!

3. When people listen to my conversations with OTHER people and then pass on messages (BEAR IN MIND ITS NOT THEIR PLACE TO); not only do they pass on the message they also pass incorrect messages.

4. Repeatedly calling me. If you call me once and I ignore it DON'T call me again!

5. Online shopping! - All in all I love online shopping, I mean it saves me time and sometimes you get more bargains as opposed to shopping in stores. However, buying something online and when it comes it doesn't look nothing like the picture or it doesn't bloody fit!!

6. 'Brazilian' babes - These are the girls with the Brazilian, Indian or whatever virgin hair, leather jackets , blazer and Zara shopper bags (basically everything that makes them look identical or almost alike with the virgin/remy hair); they all act like they ish don't stink, like seriously bish gtfoh!

7. Girls wearing wrong foundation shades and believe they look good.

8. When a guy believes his wealth will immediately make me fall for him. Im not no hoe don't believe you can buy my love.

9. When you realise that you've enjoyed your holiday soo much that now its coming to the last few days you have yet to start any assignment.

10. All these useless boys stunting with fake 'Hermes' belts; trust me if it were real you would not wear it everyday!

11. A Persistent guy; there is nothing more that annoys me than when you tell a guy, in many words, that you're not interested and he just wont stop pursuing you!

12. Liars; Need I say more?

13. Addressing me by inappropriate names i.e. Yo, Bitch etc.. My mother did not name me those name, please refrain from calling me them.

14. Judging me without even knowing me.

15. Two faced people; Do not talk to me and then talk behind/stab me in the back

16. Messing with my money; when I do your hair and let you go on credit, do not take it as I will not want my money; you then begin to act silly and expect me to be chasing you for my own hard work. Please, if you want to play those game, don't even bother asking me to do your hair for you.

17. Girls being dress size 16 but want to wear a size 10? Please dress according to your size.

18. When girls have those exaggerated, really dark brows; Its like 'chill girl, yo face ain't no colouring book'

 19. 'Internet Gangsters' - you can type ish to me but you would not say it to my face.

 20. People who try to bring me down; I'm a stress-free, happy girl, believe if you try that shit it just wont work because I'll just bounce back like POW!

Kept it short as I did not want to bore you all :); LOL I'm kidding I know its long, Thank you for reading.

What are the some of the things that get under your skin?

Top 3 'budget friendly' make up storages ♥

Hey dolls!
My Story
Storage was not a huge issue for me, until my obsession grew! When I first started collecting, I did not have so much items so I did not fuss over drawers or so; I just bought myself a medium sized storage container from my local pound store. By the time 3 months had passed, I noticed a few of the small cosmetics I owned would go missing and eventually the box had exceeded its maximum. This left me with no option but to either find bigger storage or constrain my obsession. So you can already tell, I did not constrain my obsession; I fed it LOL! I ended up buying an alternative to the acrylic cases (a plastic one) from Wilkinson. I stored all my old cosmetics (ones which were usable) and also the new ones I had bought. I'd say this is a very budget friendly alternative to the acrylic case (for UK people) and also one which has the capacity to store plenty of your makeup.

1.Muji acrylic 5 drawer box (24.95)
The Muji store can be located all over the UK. Prior to my knowledge,USA were the ones to stock up these drawers (by so I mean it was not available to UK customers) and if UK customers wanted to order them they would have to order from the US; probably through someone you knew there as their online store restricted buyers from outside of the US. THEY ARE NOW STOCKING IN THE UK!!This could be a problem as they are in high demand by many beauticians that they run out really quickly when in stock. Moreover, Ebay also happen to sell smaller acrylic drawers and sometimes replicas of the Muji drawers, however, the vendors can bruise your wallet a little. Personally I think these drawers are too small to store foundations however they are able to fit all your lip glosses, sticks, eye shadow palettes and blushes.

2.Wilkinson plastic storage 4 drawer (18.00)
As mentioned above in my story, this bad boy is VERY affordable and convenient for those starting a collection (or those who like a bargain). I place emphasis on how budget friendly this is as it is just that great for storing make up or any type of beauty/fashion items (such as earrings; I see y'all earring hoarders LOL). I've linked the one I got from Wilkinson, however, you can find these plastic drawers at local stationary stores such as Ryman. These drawers have enough storage space to store all your foundations, concealers, blushes, lipsticks and so forth. The drawers are A4 in length and so you are able to shack as much items into one drawer as you want.

3. Cutlery drawer organiser (1.00 - 40.00)
If you are an individual with a huge make up collection you may want to want to in fact buy yourself a chest of drawers. One purchase of one of these bad boys and you're sorted for how ever long your obsession wants to grow. Those who already own one chest of drawers will find that this way of storing make up is more budget friendly than any of the mentioned; It may not be the most ideal but it is definitely budget friend and stores your make up neatly; not to mention it will help lessen time trying to find where an exact item is. What I am trying to convey is that buying a cutlery drawer organiser will help to organise all your makeup. These organisers are cheap in price, fit perfectly into the chest of drawers and look neat in them too! There are many places where these organisers can be bought; they range from pound stores to Tesco and so on. In addition, depending on the quality you want and your budget you may want to buy a a higher priced organiser.

Will you be buying any of these budget friendly make up storages?
