On a no buy....lemmings galore Becca Becca Becca


So my no buy on makeup is going well, not bought anything remotely makeup or cosmetic related. : D Been busy at work too so that helps. Haven't bought any fashion mags either ; D

As a result, I am lemming some items. Mainly Becca. Today I tried out their new mineral powder, seductively named Boudoir, the new pink grapefruit beach tint and Songbird blush on top. Love all three!

I think I'm gonna get the grapefruit beach tint, a pretty girly coral, and am umming and ahhing about the mineral powder. I am nearly finishing up my MAC Mineral Skin Finish which I like and need a new one. The Becca one has great packaging, a mirror inside and is something new - always game to try a new thing. But I think the MAC MSFN is a better product - plus you get more for your money. The MAC at £18 is also cheaper than the Becca which retails at £26. Hmmmmm....

Any thoughts on the above? What are your lemmings this week/month?

  1. No fashion mags?! Yikes! Well I have collected about 8 Glamour mag this month as they come with Benefit eyeliner, coverstick or eyebright - Great value for only £2 each - I think it warrants breaking your ban :)

  2. I love Becca but in comparison to my other favourite brands I always think about value for money. Is not like your losing quality if you bought the Mac MSF. Its also like my love for Laura Mercier but then I dont think I will repurchase their blushes, so small! When you can buy Nars. My point is, if it was me I repurchase the Mac, but theirs no harm in trying if you have a healthy bank balance. lol

    Wells thats my opinion anyway! ^_^ .x.

  3. Kat O - lol, I hve to say I wasn't tempted by the Benefit offer - though it was a good offer for sure! I've only got one more week left til the end of the ban, it's been short and the first time I've done it! Only 7 more days or so! Thanks for your post, and I've subscribed to your blog too!

    KKP - you are right...I'm leaning towards the MAC MSF still....have 7 more days to go til I make up my mind! ##arrggghhh# thanks for your thoughts! They help!
