If you're feeling the credit crunch, don't fret – it is possible to look groomed and glamorous, on a shoe string budget.
Good old Boots have come up with the goods for nailing next season's trends, while staying in the black.
They've just launched a new line of sheer lipsticks in the Natural Collection brand. The Sheer Natural Lip Colour, (£1.99) has a lovely, creamy formulation that feels a lot more expensive than it's cheaper-than-lunch price tag suggests.
The lipsticks give a natural hint of colour and come in a rich fall palette of crimson berries and autumnal leaves. Sand Castle, Autumn Sunset, Honeysuckle, Lotus, (pictured), Autumn Glow and Sorbet, will give your makeup bag next season kudos, whilst still looking fresh and wearable for the last few weeks of summer.
Boots Natural Collection also have a new cheap but chic mascara coming out early October, so watch this space for more info on the bargainous £1.99 Lash Definition mascara.
Being cheap is suddenly looking very appealing...
