Max Factor mascara's are fab.

A lot of the Bourjois make up is also good (esp the pot blushes and the chocolate bronzer)

Revlons matte lipsticks are great aswell.

Sleek palettes are amazing!! Both the eyeshadow and the blush palettes.

Also, MUA eyeshadows have fab pigment, do not crease if used with a good primer, and only cost £1!!!

You can get them both in superdrug.

Second vote for MUA eyeshadows, and actually the lippies aren't bad either. The other thing I do is keep an eye on various websites like halfpriceperfumes for deals they have on, I got a shed load of the Max Factor Lipfinity collection from there last year for about 4 quid - absolute steal!

Max factor masterpiece max mascara

Some Barry M/Gosh for studio

The odd bit of Borjoius is nice

Some ELF is good

Apart from that I've either not tried it (rare) or it's crap.

Forgot to add:

Dermablend by Vichy is amazing camouflage make-up

Lucas paw paw ointment is great

Urban decay primer potion is fab although I'm using more MAC paintpots instead. No reason other than so like them.

I think that's about it?
