Highstreet Gems

We are pretty spoilt with the range of amazing products available on the high street here in the UK although I still envy those girls in the US. Although I admit I do wander off to the luxury beauty counters to gaze at the products available I truly believe that you can get some absolute gems and some products that even beats those high end offerings. Of course there are things that I like to splurge on like my foundations and skincare but that doesn't mean I don't love my bargain offerings just as much. 

In recent years there has been an influx of absolutely incredible releases and companies have really upped their game with the quality of the products. The only thing that I haven't found throughout the shelves in a good highlighter although I did spy one on a L'Oreal stand a few weeks a go which looked beautiful.

I am much more a high street girl when it comes to body, hair and nails. I rarely venture into high end hair care territory apart from Bumble and Bumble for my hair but that is a complete treat for myself and only if I am in a CCO. Skin care is an area I like to mix and match with there are some high end products that work so well for me and then there are some amazing high street products too especially the face masks from Una Brennan and Organic Surge.
