Best Budget Beauty Buys with Nadine Baggott

Best Beauty Buys with Nadine Baggott. There are a lot of Bs in that title – it’s a good job Nadine wasn’t named Brenda!

I have two very professional, completely serious videos for you to catch up on. I promise you that there are absolutely no rude bits whatsoever and that Nadine and I always stay on track, never meandering into totally irrelevant conversations or inserting idiotic anecdotal material.

I promise.

If you’ve ever watched Nadine then you’ll know that what I’ve written above is lies, lies, lies. I don’t think we ever managed more than thirty seconds of sensible chat without sliding into innuendo or talking about something so shocking I had to edit it out!

But there’s plenty of very useful beauty information interspersed between the lunacy, including a foundation that’s almost indistinguishable from its luxury cousin and the budget eye cream that’ll truly help with puffiness and bags. Nadine has been a beauty editor and presenter for over twenty-five years and knows her products inside out – she also seems to have indestructible skin, so is rather useful for testing out all of the stuff I’m too scared to go near.

Sorry Nadine; I do love you for many other reasons too.

You can find both videos below – please do subscribe to both of our Youtube channels if you haven’t done so already, and if you click the “bell” symbol beside the screen it notifies you when one of our videos goes live. Apparently if you don’t do this then a lot of the time you won’t ever know that there’s something new to watch. Which – let’s be honest – would be an absolute travesty.

    Wow! you sold me. All that talks made me buy the Loreal pro glow foundation. And because I love Loreal products.

    Hi Ruth and Nadine, that was really entertaining! A quick question if I may, why don’t you ever buy an expensive mascara? I’ve heard this said before, but never really understood why. I’m lucky in that we have a Kiko store here in Reading so when I need a new mascara I think I will try the one you recommended Ruth. X

      Im afraid I’m probably the opposite of Nadine when it comes to mascara! Apart from the KIKO my favourites are Clarins Supra, Dior Pump n Volume and Chanel Volume!! Oh and Guerlain Maxi Lash! : )

    Watching the two of you was absoluetly hilarious, but I cańt even begin to imagine waht you had to edit out, judging by what you left in! You should consider doing a special uncut version as Premium content for your readers!

      HAHAHA, maybe. I think we’d probably be sued by numerous people! : )
