Beauty Products at ASDA

As most of us know, ASDA is a very popular destination for affordable fashion. I always kick off my Summer Holiday shopping at George as they do fab bikinis & beach cover-ups. Most people are not aware that ASDA is also a great destination for all of your beauty needs. Last year saw ASDA update & revamp it’s George beauty line, introducing over 100 makeup products from Contour Kits and Eyebrow Products to Lipsticks and Eyeshadows, so ASDA really has you covered in the makeup department. Oh! and best of all is that nothing in the range costs over £6. So whilst you are shopping for your wardrobe updates you can also pick up your favourite skincare & beauty products.

They also stock one of my top skincare brands, nspa. This is a brand that offers quality products you can afford. I have tried quite a few products from their range over the years and I’ve never been disappointed. In fact, they always exceed expectations and I have my Holy Grail products that I will always repurchase. If you haven’t spent time in the beauty aisle at ASDA you’re missing out on some great brands.

George Cosmic Baked Blush in Galaxy

I haven’t used a baked blush for so long. I remember back in 2014 when they were super popular and every brand was releasing their version. I had forgotten just how pretty this swirled formulation can be, this Cosmic offering from George is in the shade Galaxy which is a very pretty flushed pink shade and it gives just the perfect amount of colour. Enough to lift any makeup look and give it a fresh, radiant feel. I love the glow you get from a baked blush and this one is a good mix of highlight and blush, it reflects the light and leaves you looking healthy. It is a very wearable colour and it has gone straight into my everyday makeup bag & I have a feeling it is going to be my goto blush this Summer.

George Matte Lipstick in Smooch

I am so excited to see that ASDA have a range of soft matte lipsticks and there is no denying that they look stunning in their trendy rose gold packaging. You can’t go wrong with a classic pink shade and this one is a beautiful, everyday option. The formula is quite dry but that is to be expected in a matte formula it applies evenly and the colour is pigmented and so pretty on the lips. I am pleased with this shade and want to get a few more shades, I am tempted by a red.

nspa Beauty Rituals Smoothing Eyecream

Eye cream for me is one of those products of which I’m never 100% sure that they’re totally necessary. Although I do use them religiously because I don’t want to look back in years to come and wish I’d made more effort to keep those pesky fine lines at bay! So when it comes to this step in my skincare routine I am never very loyal to one brand the only criteria I have is price, I like my eye cream to be affordable and at only £5.00 this nspa one is just that. Oh, and it does contain Hyaluronic Acid which is a cult anti ageing skin care ingredient that everyone in the beauty industry swears by, so if the experts love it I will get onboard.

It is enriched with Hyaluronic Acid & Tetrapeptide to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and crows feet. Specially selected actives help firm and plump whilst enhancing radiance for a younger, brighter looking eye area.

nspa Beauty Rituals Face Masks

nspa have released 8 masks within this range, each mask targeting a specific skin concern. They have clay, moisturising and hydrating masks which includes a sheet mask. With all 8 costing only £1.50 each, this is such an affordable way add a mask to your beauty regime and have a little pamper. I love the sheet mask best of all as it is perfect to use after a busy week it soothes and rejuvenates tired dull skin. I always have a couple of the nspa beauty rituals masks in my stash, they come in this handy pouches which make them travel-friendly and ideal to take with you on your holiday.

The nspa range is cruelty-free & available exclusively in ASDA.

Affordable Beauty Products From ASDA

I love trying out affordable beauty products because I think we all know that price doesn’t always guarantee quality, at both ends of the scale. ASDA is bringing its ‘A’ game with its own brand beauty range from George and the nspa skincare products are not to be missed. Let me know if you have tried anything from either range, I would really like to hear your recommendations.

Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipstick Collection

New Rimmel The Only One Matte Collection

Rimmel The Only One Matte Lipsticks

Rimmel Matte Lipsticks

Exciting news, Rimmel have released a new range of Matte Lipsticks which promise high impact colour, a non drying formula and a comfortable velvety matte finish. I think Rimmel have knocked it out of the park with the Only 1 Matte Lipstick Collection and they delivered on all promises which for anafforable matte lip option is pretty rare.

I have 9 shades and I think the colour selection is pretty good, they seem to have covered most bases. They have a nice range of wearable universal nudes, soft pinks, classic reds and then they have a couple of deeper colours in the form of a plum toned brown and a vibrant purple. They’re missing a peach (in my opinion) but I hope they extend the range a little in the future, for now I think there is most definitely a shade or two for everyone and a colour for every occasion.

500 Take The Stage – A true festive red shade

610 – High Flyer – A darker, more dusky nude

700 – Trendsetter – This is such a pretty brown nude

750 – Look Who’s Talking – Is a rich brown shade

800 – Run The Show – A vibrant purple, with incredible colour pay off

810 – The Matte Factor – A beautiful rich berry toned red. Reminds me of mulled wine

Affordable Matte Lipsticks From Rimmel

The texture of these is not what you would expect from a typical matte lipstick, it is more creamy which means its lovely to apply, it glides on the lips with ease. The colours are all very pigmented and the lighter shades flawless but a couple of the darker shades apply quite patchy, in particular the shade Look Who’s Talking needed two coats to work but that is also the beauty with this collection you can build up the colours and their intensity which is fab.

My favourite shades are Salute, High Flyer and Call The Shots, they’re all easy to wear everyday shades. I have had Salute in my handbag since it arrived, it freshens up my makeup and it is such a subtle, pretty shade.

Matte lips are bang on trend at the moment and although these aren’t the most long wearing option out there, I think they are easy to wear, comfortable on the lip and the colour selection is really good. If like me you struggle with the really drying formula of most long wearing matte lipsticks then this new formula from Rimmel will be right up your alley. It is more of a satin matte finish and the formula very much reminds me of my favourite Comfort Matte lipstick from Urban Decay but a fraction of the price.

So if you’re looking for a pigmented, long wearing lipstick for Autumn / Winter but don’t want a formula that is going to be too drying then I think these need to be on the list! My one gripe is the scent is odd, not sure what it is but I am not a fan.

Which do you think is your favourite shade?

Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipsticks are available at Boots £4.99 and Superdrug £6.99
