Good Luck & have an wonderful Christmas!

Today you can win a selection of 2 True make up; eyeshadow, liner, lipstick and nail polish.

To win….


Want to win it?

Method 1.

Answer the following question:

We all have mixed tastes when it comes to make up – which items are you most happy to buy cheap versions of, if any?


Hmmmm. I like nice foundations and lip colours, so I would say mascara – purely because I hate paying £20 for a mascara that goes clumpy quickly, but I have little luck with cheap mascara. Soooooo actually it has to be something like blusher. Cheap Japanese blushers are amazing!

Method 2.

Follow me on Twitter and retweet (RT) the following message:

“RT @cosmetic_candy: Follow & RT to win a 2 True Make Up. Info:”

*Note: if you change the tweet, it will not count as an entry.

Good Luck!

  1. Mascara (cos you can keep them for long), eyeshadow (cos I like variety and you can never use up enough to justify the cost) and lipglosses (cos the difference in looks is not that great)

  2. I go for cheap clear mascara not the colored ones because it will scatter around my eyes.

  3. Mascara! And may holy grail is Essence Multi Action mascara, the cheapest and the best that I have ever had!

  4. I don’t mind buying cheap lip balm (almost all have same ingredients) and nail polish!!

  5. For me.. If I can find anything cheap thats decent quality its a score! I’ve found 1$ products that I love more than 30$ products and 1$ products that I shouldn’t have paid 1 cent for.. But I probably find more lip gloss & mascara that are of reasonable quality for the price most often. Thanks for the entry! 😀

  6. I like to find nice foundation for a cheap price that lasts long, and also nice lipsticks which not dry my lips :)

  7. I don’t mind scrimping on nail polish, because to me there’s not enough difference between a £20 Chanel varnish and a £3 Mavala varnish to justify the difference in price…it just takes a bit more work to make it look good lol

  8. Definitely nail polish and mascara, I don’t see the need to buy the expensive colors. I also love my craft store dupe of the MAC 239!

  9. I absolutely cannot trust cheap lip products (you eat them!) and cheap eyeshadows rarely work well. I don’t wanna know what’s in those RM 5 foundations and super cheap mascaras annoy me. I would have to say blusher too. I have 2 from Daiso and they’re super pigmented!

    hmm its a tough one , i guess i would like to try cheaper alrenatives / dupes for Blushers. I love some pop of color on my cheek

  11. Nailpolish, eyeshadows, lip products.

  12. If I had to cheap out, it would definitely be mascara. If I have to throw away a tube every 3 months, I’d rather it be a cheapo tube :)

  13. Clear mascara or nail polishes work as fine in cheaper versions as in pricier ones. 😀

  14. Colored eye pencils coz i love hoarding them!

  15. I always buy cheap versions of expensive nail polishes :)

  16. Eyeliners, since they can’t ever go wrong :)

  17. Nail polish, although sometimes, you have to check the quality!

  18. has to be mascara for me too

  19. Eyeliner

  20. Eyeliner for me too!

  21. Ummmm. Everything? I hate wasting too much money on makeup, especially if I don’t end up using it

  22. I buy cheap versions of nail polish too ?

  23. Tough one. But I’ll probably go for foundation. If there was a drugstore foundation that performs equally well as high end foundations, I’d be most happy to purchase it. Sadly though, I’ve never found a drugstore foundation that works okay on me. Until then, I am at my happiest with some really good mascaras from the drugstore.

  24. Nail base coat, $20 or $2, they dry up and I go thru them fast.
    Nail polish removers, I can’t care for bergamot, cherry blossom and rose scents as long as it doesn’t smell like cancer.
    Lipbalms because cheaper variety works just as fine, if not better. I depot Vaseline into nicer pots :X

  25. nail polish brand ’emily’, have never let me down! i got tons of it on me blog, the colour is great, wat u c is wat u get, no transparent sh*t hehe

    xoxo elle

  26. Eyeliner and lip balm. 😉
