Orange And Aqua

Decided to play around with the 'Smoke It Out' palette from Crown Brush for the first time today. I'd never tried any of Crown Brush's products before I received these in the post a few days ago, and having already heard and seen so much about the brand I couldn't wait to get testing them out and see what they have to offer. 

I felt spoilt for choice on which colours to use, so I threw this together using the two that instantly stood out most to me as soon as I opened the palette, and thankfully the combination worked well!

I also used a couple of the eye brushes from their Purple HD Brush Set to put together this look and so far I'm really impressed considering Crown Brush are a budget brand. As for the eyeshadows themselves, they take a little bit of packing on to achieve a good solid colour payoff, but the colour selection (at least in this particular palette) makes it worth the extra bit of work in my opinion. 

I'm planning on making a post with some of my all time favourite cheapy products, and am curious to know what are your favourite budget or drugstore brands, if any?
