Hello babs! I have been super excited to share this post with you ever since it was agreed… I am doing my 3rd collaboration today with the wonderful Brooke Clarke!! (If you don’t know who she is then you’ve been living under a rock haha, she’s so popular on here and she should be because her blogs amazing so definitely check it out) As you can tell from the title we both agreed to write about what our best makeup products are under £10… keep on reading if you’d like to find out…
Side note: The products spoke about in this post are the best in my personal opinion so if you don’t agree with any of them then that’s totally fine as everyone is different and has their own opinions on products 🙂
1. Collection: Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19) – This has been a holy grail for the longest time for me and has been raved about all over the internet within the beauty community. I love this because it has amazing coverage and blends out like an absolute dream. It doesn’t crease quickly and doesn’t sink into any fine lines that I have under the eyes which is so good. I don’t even have to think about repurchasing it, I know I wouldn’t be able to live without it.
2. Rimmel London: Match Perfection Loose Powder (£6.99) – It’s only been in the last year or so that I’ve actually been using loose powder and this is the first one and only one that I’ve tried so far. I only really tried loose powder when I heard Emmasrectangle raving about it on her channel and I’m so glad she made me buy it. This powder gives no flashback in photos, sits so nicely on the skin and doesn’t feel heavy under the eyes. I use mine mainly under my eyes but even when I use it all over the face it makes my skin feel so nice.
3. I Heart Makeup: Chocolate Bar Palettes (£7.99, £8.99 & £9.00) – These are my favourite drugstore eyeshadow palettes of all time! I nearly own every one of them and I love how every one of them has its differences. I love them because one they look like chocolate bars and two because of how good they work on the eyes and with each palette you can create so many different looks.
4. Real Techniques: Miracle Complexion Sponge (£5.99) – I know this is technically a makeup tool but I class it as a product. I have recently been using the Original Beauty Blender but this is still by far my favourite sponge to apply foundation and concealer. This sponge is so softy and bouncy and doesn’t suck up lots of product like some sponges do. It blends out my foundation and concealer seamlessly and the pointed part is great for get right under the eyes.
5. Nivea: Post Shave Balm (£5.29) – I have been using this as primer for the longest time after seeing Nikkietutorials raving about it on her channel. I love the scent of this (strange I know) and it feels so hydrating on my skin which is good as I suffer from dryness. This also has a tacky feel to it which is good as it helps my foundation stick to it and it sinks into the skin nicely. You don’t need a lot of this product either as a little goes a long way.
6. Lottie London: Shimmer Squad (£9.95) – I’ve only really tried out this product recently but I am obsessed. I love how it has 4 different shades of highlighter so I can choose what I fancy, they are blinding and sit lovely onto the skin. They are not too glittery and shimmery which I like. I do have other highlighters which are great also but I thought I would include this one because it has a variety of shades and not just one so would be great for your collection or kit.
7. Freedom: Brow Pomade (£5.00) – This was the first brow pomade I actually tried out and I love it. It is quite similar to the ABH Dip Brow but for such a good price. This is so creamy and I can build up the pigmentation to what I want on the brow so I can have them as harsh or as soft as you want. A little does go a long way so I don’t have to worry about running out of it quickly.
8. Rimmel London: Stay Matte Powder (£3.99) – This was the first ever powder I owned when I got into makeup and I still love it to this day. It feels like nothing on the skin and leaves your skin feeling so soft. It sets my makeup really good and doesn’t emphasise on my dry patches which is amazing.
9. ELF: Hydrating Face Primer (£7.50) – No word of a lie my makeup stays on so well with this primer. My friend used mine the once and slept with her makeup on (naughty I know) but genuinely she woke up and he makeup didn’t budge! I use this when I am having a bad dry skin day and this makes my skin feel so smooth. This literally feels like you are applying nothing onto the skin its that soft and silky.
10. W7: Lip Twister (£4.95) – Apart from my MAC lip pencils which are over £10 this is my favourite affordable lip liner. I love the fact that its a twist up lip liner and that I don’t have to sharpen it because I hate that. These are sooo creamy and easy to apply onto the lips and last for quite a long time.
That concludes my list of Best Makeup Products under £10. I had soooo much fun doing this collaboration with Brooke as it made me realise what makeup products I actually reach for all the time and that they are so affordable!
