    Estée Lauder Beautiful Escape

    Estee Lauder Beautiful Escape | Essential Twenty

    I always catch the news about the Estée Lauder company beauty bags far too late. They’re sold out and the bargains have been picked up before I even hear a whisper of them. But not this time, oh no! This time I spotted it early on and managed to grab a beauty bargain. The most recent beauty bag was the Estée Lauder Beautiful Escape, containing £73 worth of products from a variety of Estée Lauder owned brands for just £25!

    Small Drugstore Palette Declutter, Summer 2017

    Small Drugstore Palette Declutter | Essential Twenty

    A short but sweet declutter post, mainly because there are only two reasons I’m getting rid of these: either they’re old or the pigmentation isn’t there. Whatever the reason, I don’t use the eyeshadow quads (and mini palettes of similar sizes) at all anymore so I’m saying goodbye to them.

    Large Drugstore Palette Declutter, Summer 2017

    Drugstore Palette Declutter | Essential Twenty

    This is the second of three eyeshadow palette declutter posts; who knew I had so many eyeshadow palettes? Oh wait, I did. Today I’m sharing my declutter of my larger drugstore palettes, as opposed to the quads in my collection. Please don’t judge me for the amount I’m getting rid of; my drawer is still full!

    Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Illuminating Setting Spray

    Makeup Revolution Illuminating Setting Spray | Essential Twenty

    I don’t need to rave about my favourite setting spray, the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, anymore than I have in the past, but what I can say is that it’s quite pricey. I’ve been looking for some budget options to replace my favourite but I’ve been struggling. Some I’ve enjoyed, others not so much. But the Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Illuminating Setting Spray is one that I’ve been using for a little while and it’s time to give my 2 cents about it.

    High End Eyeshadow Palette Declutter

    High End Eyeshadow Palette Declutter | Essential Twenty

    I’m back on the declutter hype today, and sharing which of my high end eyeshadow palettes I’m getting rid of. I’m not actually binning any of these bar one because they definitely still deserve a little more love, but I’m going to pass them onto friends and family to see if they can give them a new home. I personally hate getting rid of high end products, but my eyeshadow drawer is bursting so I have to say goodbye to some palettes I just never use.

    Empties, July 2017

    July Empties | Essential Twenty

    Wow I’ve done really badly at finishing up products this month. I feel like I’ve used up a lot of sachets and just stuck them straight in the bin, and I’ve got a lot of products that are a couple of uses away from being finished. However, I probably won’t be doing an empties in August as I’m going away for two and a half weeks and I’m not sure if I’ll get much used up that is actually mine. We’ll see. But for now, here is my very pitiful attempt at an empties post.
