Is the Missguided £1 Bikini A Real Bargain

Image
If you're an avid fast fashion buyer or you like to stay in the loop, you would have seen that Missguided released a £1 bikini: a simple black triangle shape bikini ranging from sizes 4-24. The offer is for a limited time only; releasing 1000s onto the website each day. For some, this might sound like heaven. A cheap bikini perfect for Summer: a great staple. It even beats the prices of Primark and other brands promising cheap affordable clothing.

But how much of a bargain is this bikini for the consumer and the producers, when the bikini is only £1. This brings the question, how much is it really costing to make it? Are they really making a profit or are they shortchanging the suppliers and the workers behind that £1 bikini? When we break the bikini down it's all about polyester, which is largely unsustainable and harms the planet massively.

December 8th - Eyeshadow Palette Love





Over the holidays I have been trying to create makeup looks that have been subtle, but that slight hint of Glamour. Adding a bit of sparkle on the eyes just to change my look a little bit.

And the main palette I have been using for this is the Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 2 palette. Makeup revolution are known well for their dupes, from the MAC dupe lipsticks to now this. The Lorac dupe eyeshadow palette.



Packed with 16 shades ranging from shimmers to mattes. This is the perfect day to night palette featuring purple and dark blue shades that when blended into the crease it helps to create that perfect nighttime smokey eye.

My ultimate favorite shades have to be paper, silk, chase, and one way. They are 3 nude shades that when blended together create this gorgeous bronzed eye look. One way is the purple love of mine, it isn't too dark or too light when blended in.



Pigementation is amazing, not one shade is faint or poor in quality. The eyeshadows don't crease or move, even without using primer. I feel like as we get closer into Christmas I am going to be more adventurous with this palette.




Watch this space for some makeup tutorials featuring this beauty. For £6.99 I am in love with such a highly pigmented palette that can be used day and night. You would be silly to pay triple and more for the real Lorac palette when you can get this one for less than £10
