Miners Cosmetics are a UK based budget beauty brand, available both online and various chemists throughout the country (view full list of stockists here). I was lucky enough to get to try out their top picks for Spring 2014*, chosen by make-up artist Hayley Sparkes. I have to say, I am quickly become a fan of Miners Cosmetics for their purse friendly prices and on trend makeup products!
First up is a must have product for anyone looking for a fresh, mattifying powder that doesn't cake on the skin. Miners Fresh Faced powder is only £3.99 and I've finished off two of these recently, I absolutely love them. I find they give a more natural look than the rimmel stay matte, so they are ideal for this time of year when the dewy look is in but you still want to remain oil free. The Matte effect lipstick in 'wonderland' is a stunning shade and a brilliant long lasting finish for just £3.99. You can see the real life swatch of this in my recent chit chat post, and I have to say I absolutely love it. It's the perfect orange/red shade, and although I find orange/coral/red a difficult colour to pull off this one is definitely wearable and I like that despite being matte, it isn't drying on the lips.
One thing I hadn't tried before was in the nail section from Miners. This Nail colour in Jezebel is £2.99, like all of their polishes and is a vivid pink shade. The formula applies smoothly with an almost shine like gel finish which is lovely, the shade selection is also pretty good! Finally I've been trying out Maxi Waterproof Mascara which is £3.49, so definitely one of the cheapest mascaras I've tried. I have to say, I'm not usually a fan of waterproof mascaras for some reason. I found this to be great for length and holding curl, but not great for volume, so I guess it depends what you look for in a mascara. I personally want volume and thickness, but this is a great option if you want a more natural, curly lash!
All of these products are available on Miners Cosmetics website and delivery is only £2.60! So you really can get some bargain beauty buys!
