No-Buy/UK Product Recommendations?

So in May (at the end of schools :D!) I'm going on vacation to London and Paris with my sister to visit my brother and other family members. We're staying one week in London, one week in Paris and then back to London before we leave for home.

Due to the huge amount of costs I've decided to try going on a No-Buy/Project 10 pan/Shop My Stash with my makeup. Of course it'll will only last until I get to London in which case I will splurge on UK makeup to my heart's content >)

So I'm relatively unacquainted with most of the makeup brands that are offered in London other than Sleek and Barry M. Can anyone make any suggestions as to places/stores/brands I should check out?

To prevent this from being a picture-less post, here's a simple EOTD that I did using the Blue Brown dupe in the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Inglot 78 gel liner on the lid
Wet n Wild Comfort Zone
-Bottom Right Definer color on the lid and blended into the crease
-Top left browbone color as a highlight
Physician's Formula Glam Brown Eyes Black liner on the lower lash line
L'oreal Voluminous WP Mascara
Wet n Wild Taupe eyeliner for brows

Off to finish phonetics/transcription homework!


  1. BeautyUK are quite good.
    MUA (at Superdrugs) dead cheap, but you can find some real gems. I like the eyshadows and nail polishes myself.

  2. Love this look! Both colors look great combined together!

  3. check out superdrug and boots (they often have 3 for 2 offers). i'd pick up Soap & Glory Righteous body butter <3 they're a line from Bliss Labs...the products smell amazing!

    Check out MeMeMe they have products which resemble Benefit but at a fraction of the price :) collection 2000 is pretty good too!

  4. @Student's Guide I've definitely been looking at MUA and the fact that everything is 1 pound is extremely appealing to me

    @Luckiebeauty Thank you!

    @Jennifer I definitely hope that's what's going on because there are a lot of things I've been wanting from Superdrug and Boots. MeMeMe is on my list as is Collection 2000 for their glitter liners!

  5. hey! Thanks for the advice on the gel liner, I'll try that out. Btw, I love L'oreal voluminous mascara. But I haven't tried the WP one yet! Do you find it holds the curl better?
