please excuse the photos. The sun was being an ass.
We all love a good bargain, especially when it’s a makeup bargain!
Today I am collaborating with the beautiful Jessica Rowlands! After going through different ideas, Jessica came up with the idea of showing off our top makeup beauty buys, all under £10! If you’re a fan of anything beauty related, then you NEED to all go follow Jessicas blog!
Honestly, I’m definitely team drug store over team high-end. As nice as it is to say that I’ve got high end products, I’d much rather be able to buy multiple items, than splash out a wad of cash on one.
Essence Stay All Day 16H Foundation £3.80
The only thing I hate about this foundation is the shade range. I think they only have 3 or 4 shades and that’s it! I have the lightest shade, but still find that I have to use some colour changing foundation drops to lighten in up.
Apart from that, I love this stuff. Looks so beautiful on my skin, lasts for a long time, doesn’t look cakey and is the perfect coverage for me. Next time I go to Wilko, I’m definitely stocking up on this!
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder £3.99
This was something I used to use when I was in secondary school and for some reason, I’ve only repurchased this again now. It really helps prolong my base, keeps my oily face at bay and no flashback! You go Rimmel.
Collection Lasting Perfection 16 Hr Wear Concealer/Colour Correction Concealer £4.19
I really don’t think I need to say a lot on this.
Honestly, everybody and their nan has this, and there’s a reason everyone has it – It’s cheap as chips and is honestly the best concealer I’ve ever found (yes, even better than Tarte’s Shape Tape).
Primark False Eyelashes £1 – £5
I was honestly so shocked to see the quality of these. The £1 are actually pretty decent, the GWA are thicker and more bold, and then the SOUO are to die for and are still a bargain at £5 a pair. All I need to do now is get the whole lot of them!
Primark High Pigment Blushes £1.50
After trying out blushes from a LOT of different brands, I still think these come up top. The shades are beautiful, I’m a fan of the packaging, and the price is literally laughable. £1.50 for a blood decent blush? Yes please.
Barry M Flawless Colour Correcting Primer £5.99
I’ve seen a lot of bad reviews on this, but I’m not entirely sure why? I will agree that there is piss all ‘colour correction’ about this since the green isn’t pigmented enough, but I find it’s a really nice, smooth primer which prolongs my makeup!
New Look Fiber Brow Gel £4.99
I recently found a £10 New Look gift card in one of my old purses, so decided to check out their makeup range and I wasn’t disappointed. Most days, I don’t even fill in my brows now, and I just brush this through. It really makes my brows look super filled in, but natural. It also saves me hell of a lot of time in the morning which is a big plus in my eyes!
I really wanted to get the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe palette, but since I’m not working full-time, the dollar is a bit limited. I saw someone post this in a Facebook beauty group, and straight away brought it. Ever since it’s arrived, I’ve found myself using it daily! All the shades are stunning, they’re really pigmented and super easy to blend. What more could you want from a palette?
Please make sure that you all go check out Jessica’s half of the collab and let us know what are your best beauty finds under £10?!
Also, a giant thank you to Jessica for collaborating with me, and fingers crossed we can again in the future!
