Deals from Dealz!!

Hey girls,

I've seen a lot of talk online about different makeup products from the budget chain Dealz. Now normally a makeup brand that costs €1:49 for the majority of its products would not appeal to me. It would make me think of the horrible stuff I used to buy from the pound shops when I was a teenager, but I bit the bullet, researched the best bits and drove down to Shannon to buy a few bits. I personally love going in here and buying loads of crap and cleaning products but was always wary of the beauty section. I went through the stand and took swatches of all their products and ended up just getting three things. 

Firstly I picked up the famous purple shadow - Deep Plum 17. This was just bloody gorgeous. It is a beautiful deep purple shade with great colour payoff. This is a brilliant crease colour and would suit all eye colours. This was only €1:49. 

I also picked up the Pout it Out lip liner in nude that a lot of sites say is a dupe for MAC' Spice pencil, but this was so drying and crap I threw it away.  

The only other product that appealed to me was their Matte Bronzer in the shade Matte Medium. Now this, as a bronzer will give you a lovely orange tangoed glow, that's really not attractive on anyone, so what I actually use it for is as a blush and also as an eyeshadow. This is also gorgeous as a crease colour to warm up a smokey eye, great for anyone with blue eyes.

Hope this helps,
Hilda..xx

Penneys P.S. Love Makeup Brush Cleanser


I picked up this little beauty last week, really not expecting to like it but I was so surprised by how good it was.
I am anal about clean brushes and normally use MAC brush cleanser each day or reach for Inglot brush cleanser for spot cleaning between clients. MAC is brilliant, it removes stains and keeps your brushes soft and squeaky clean. Inglot is only good for spot cleaning on jobs as it dries so quickly. I find the Inglot one dries out my brushes. 
This has the best qualities of both of these. It removes stains, my brushes were so soft after it and best of all, they were dry in about two minutes. I know most people don't bother cleaning their own brushes or even know you're supposed to! The germs that live in brushes are nasty and you will get some funky eyes unless you start washing them. This is only €2.50 so you have no excuse now not to clean them..xx
