Episode 3: High Street vs High End

Welcome back to Beauty Talk! Last week we focused on 'Cleansing 101', you can listen to that HERE. In this episode we're talking about affordable versus pricey beauty: do you prefer to splash the cash when it comes to make up or are you a bargain hunter? Are there some things for which you would only choose high end? We discuss our faves from both ends of the spectrum.
