Supermarket bargain? Don't mind if I do!

Being the brilliant daughter that I am, I trawled down to Morrisons with my mum to do the weekly food shop today (something that, I have to admit, I do secretly enjoy). However
 what I did not expect to find among the fruit and veg, were these beauties!

Supermarket beauty products have developed a bad reputation over the years - which, in my opinion, is quite unfair. I agree that you do have to be cautious with some brands, and you are never going to get the same quality as on the high street, but if you are looking for something cheap and cheerful to add to your collection, then I would definitely recommend checking out the beauty aisles down your local.

This set of 5 brushes come in a lovely gold and lace wrap-case, and contain a blusher/powder brush, foundation brush, eyeshadow brush, angled eyebrow brush and an eyelash comb. The brushes are made of synthetic bristles and the handles are plastic. What surprised me however, were how soft they were! They do the job they are intended for, with no frills - i'm yet to clean them so will update you on how they withstand a good scrub!

Yes, i've used much higher quality make up brushes (and didn't my bank balance know it!) - but I have also used a lot worse. If you are looking for a cute gift for a friend, or a spare set for yourself, these are perfect. And best of all; they certainly didn't break the bank at 98p!

Have you discovered any great bargains at the supermarkets? What supermarket products do you live by?
