Review: Best Beauty Buy Of 2013!!!

No, I'm not lying...this is the BEST beauty buy I have bought all year both in value and ahhmazingness 

Before I start, you need to know two things about me
1. I am INCREDIBLY cheap
2. I like variety (this will make more sense as you read on)

Let's get the ball, I have been searching far and wide for a nice new lip colour, preferable a lip pencil...I saw a bunch of different ones, Rimmel had a few nice ones but I didn't feel their shades suited me...Sleek had a bunch of nice shades but I didn't want to pay £4.99 for one lip pencil (refer back to point #1)..and the Natural Collection lip pencils were only £2 each, but I didn't like their shades or the texture much


What did I do? Where did I turn to? 

EBAY!!!!! Yeeeeehhhh Buddy!!! 

Just have a gander at this fabulousness... 

Here are all 12 swatches (please ignore my unattractive dry looking hand)

These are my top 6 shades (in no particular order)...please excuse the shoddy lighting, it wasn't very bright outside so had to use unnatural lighting. Also, the shades don't have a name, they're just numbered so I'll make up my own

1. Nude

2. Barbie Pink

3. Deep Plum

4. Burnt Orange

   5. Oxblood

           and lastly 

6. Ruby Woo "dupe" 

Like every product, there will always be pros and cons so it's only fair to list them both:

Pros: * The colours are stunning, and has a wide variety of shades
          * Love the matte finish
          * Long lasting 
          * Ridiculously good value for money 

Cons: * My favourite shades are bound to run out soon so I'll have to buy another set (but that's not really a con now is it?) 
            * The slightly dry texture means you have to apply lip balm before putting it on 
            * Certain shades need to be built up

So after all this, guess how much it cost....go on....

Ok, I'll give you three be realistic here there are 12 of these epic lip pencils 

A) £15.99
B) £2.59
C) £8.94

The answer is....B!!!! I know right, frickin epic!!! 

Check it out, they've got even cheaper options:
