There are plenty of cheap makeup products around the place but the real trouble is finding the ones that are worth your pennies. Who doesn’t love a cheap thrill every once in a while? They’re easy on the bank account but still just new makeup is new makeup – always exciting. I challenged myself to find the ten products I love most in my collection that you can pick up for less than a tenner.
The Anti-Redness and Brightening powders from Savvy are reminiscent of the very pricey Guerlain Meteorite powders but for less than a tenner I’m very impressed with these two. The powder is super soft, never cakey so I use them pretty much daily to set my base.
A fool-proof formula – applying subtly at first but easily built up – and there’s a shade in the range to keep anyone and everyone happy, ranging from barely there neutrals to bolder pops of colour.
It’s a similar deal as with the blushes – a generous shade range (including one of my favourite crease shades, Hazel Me Not*) and a no-fuss formula for a pretty awesome price.
My favourite dark brown liner comes from Models Prefer, it’s such a soft consistency that it glides on effortlessly but once it sets it will not smudge or move around. Perfect for adding smokiness quickly and easily.
If a clear brow gel keeps my brows in place without feeling crusty or dry, it’s a winner. It’s even more of a success in my books when you can pick it up for just $5.
These are some of the best lipsticks Maybelline have brought out, in my opinion (the Colorblur collection comes close, though). The shade range is simple but covers all your bases, with a formula that’s super pigmented, slightly matte without drying out your lips.
Boe Professional Super Shine Lipstick –
Yet another rave about this beauty from Boe Professional. It glides onto the lips, it feels comfortable all day long and the shade? That speaks for itself – mauve-pink perfection.
