As you probably know by now, I do love a good bargain. In fact, I’m sure most people do? When it comes to make up, I love finding amazing products that don’t cost the earth. Quite a few of my favourite products are from the likes of Boots/Superdrug and I thought why not compile a list of some of my favourites that all come under the £10 mark.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Primer £7.99– I have bought so many so tubes of this primer, I have actually lost count. It’s a good dupe for Benefit’s Porefessional and creates a flawless, smooth base for your make up. It’s quite good at oil control and the tea tree within the product is great if you have blemish prone skin.
Gosh Velvet Touch Prime n Set Primer- £9.99– Okay so this won’t give you much change from £10, but hands down this is the best mattifying primer, I have ever used. I get seriously oily skin, and sometimes, I will have to powder numerous times throughout the day. However this primer which can be used as an primer or powder does a great job of mattifying the skin and keeping oil at bay all day. I applied this at 7am one morning, in that time, I got the train to London, got the tube, ran around to get to where I wanted to, sat in a warm room for a few hours, came home, watched Neftlix and napped, and guess what only after all that did I think, I might need to powder now. That was at about 5pm. I am seriously impressed with how well this keeps oil at bay and if you’ve got oily skin like myself you can breathe easy in not looking greasy all the time.
Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream* £9.99– A recent re discovery in my make up collection is this CC cream from Bourjois. A colour correcting lightweight base, which helps to eradicate red ness and even out your skin tone. I love the flawless finish of this product and for a light base, it has quite a good coverage. I’ve been turning to it most days, and I’ll be sure to pick some more up for Spring/Summer.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer £5.99– My current favourite concealer, yes it’s not holy grail status but it’s a pretty good concealer for under £7. I find it’s creamy and blend able, and usually after applying a couple of layers does a good job of concealing spots, and it lasts all day too.
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer £7.99- I love this for using under the eyes, the light shade really helps to brighten up the under eye area. It also has a pretty good coverage meaning that eye bags and dark circles are a distant memory. I also use it for highlighting to when contouring. A good little two in one and this is my third tube of the stuff.
There’s lots of other great products for under £10 too, and I’m sure it won’t be long till I whip out another budget beauty post, but for now tell me, your favourite products under £10…
