Somebody pass us a shopping basket already!


Beauty and bargain are two words we love to see in the same sentence. And our latest low-cost find is from a brand we’d never even heard of…until now.

Yep just when you thought your list of cash-friendly cosmetics was complete, another contender steps into the ring. This time it’s the turn of the Olivia Hale collection at Home Bargains.


The range’s blusher brick has been sending beauty bloggers and make-up aficionados into a frenzy. The reason? It’s been compared to Bobbi Brown’s much coveted shimmer brick. And while the latter has a £35 price tag, Home Bargain’s version is just 99p. Yes you read that right!

Both have five sparkle infused shades to choose from, and both come in a sleek black case. Launching across UK stores this month the wider collection includes primer, foundation, bronzers and busher bricks, eye shadows and lip glosses. And the good news is is that they’re all also priced at 99p! Fans of Collection 2000 and MUA (aka Make Up Academy), we’re predicting that his could fast become your new obsession.

The bargain blusher palette – what do those in the know really think?

Taking to Instagram blogger notjustamumfromcumbria raved, “I’m loving this make up and even better when it’s only 99p each!”
