ASDA George Make Up Challenge

As much as I love my cosmetics, I have to admit that I am a bit slack when it comes to buying make-up. I tend to buy one or two big pieces at the start of every season and then try and get my money's worth out of them. In some cases I'll end up using them for much longer than is healthy (let alone fashionable) and will finally give up and throw away an out-of-date mascara or a smudged eye-shadow several years after I really should have done.

For that reason, I've decided that I should instead try and go for a more affordable option and buy more make-up, more frequently. The new ASDA George range of make-up for spring and summer seemed as good a place to start as any and ASDA are making some pretty bold statements by comparing their new products directly with their more expensive equivalents.

Now, if you can see this picture of me about 2 days after Lara was born, you will know why I'm now worshipping the George Shimmer Me Starstruck bronzing powder (saying that I feel a whole lot healthier and less worn out this time around with Holly)! ASDA compare their Shimmer Me powder with the £31 Chanel bronzing powder (which I will admit looks very similar although I haven't tried it). Personally, I think the George bronzing powder, when I wear it, reminds me an awful lot of last summer's Estee Seastar bronzing blush, just perhaps a bit less pearlescent. Mind you, at just £4.50, the George blush compares more than favourable on price(!) and with a few more pieces from the range, I should definitely be able to turn over a new leaf when it comes to make-up. No excuses now!
