It is a well known fact that beauty can be expensive, from designer brands to limited editions, sometimes getting the look you desire can cost a fortune. It doesn’t always have to be that way and there are a lot of affordable options out there that will help you achieve a catwalk look at a fraction of the price and over the next few weeks we will be exploring some of those options and sharing our favourites.
Boutique at Sainsbury’s
With a decidedly summery flavour Boutique is Sainsbury’s Limited Edition make up range. Created alongside professional make up artists Jo Saville and Sophia Price, the collection includes nail polishes, eye shadows, lip sticks and lip glosses. All of the items have tested and used before being released, by professional make up artists.
The spirit of Boutique can be seen in the names given to the products, for example, Grass Is Always Greener, Storm In A Teacup and Tickety Boo. Fun with a quirky edge is definitely evident. Couples with rich, sophisticated colours that are right off of the Spring/Summer 2014 catwalks, this range aims to make quality and elegance, affordable and accessible.
‘Boutique was created for the everyday woman,
but as a result of testing the products we found industry
insiders were choosing to include the products
in their make-up kits because of their fantastic quality.’
Jo Saville, Boutique Make-up Ambassador
