I’ve seen a few people doing this kind of post and I thought it would be a really fun idea to show you guys my favourite 10 products that are all priced under £10. The majority of my makeup stash is made up of high street brands, so it was kinda difficult for me to narrow it down to just ten items but I think i’ve got a good balance of things here for you guys.
Let’s start off with foundation, and my favourite high street foundation has to be the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation. I love the medium coverage of this foundation, it’s not too dewy but it’s not matte which is the perfect in between for me and not to mention it’s priced just under £10. I also find the shade range of these really good, and my shade ‘Shell’ is the perfect match for me, the only annoying thing is that it doesn’t have a pump. Keeping with base products, my concealer of choice is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer. I love this as it works to make the area under my eyes look a little more awake, and it works really well to cover up any blemishes without caking or showing any dry skin. I couldn’t not include the Real Techniques Blush Brush, and luckily enough this one is priced under £10. I use this for all sorts of powder based products, including a setting powder, bronzer and blush, it’s a great all rounder for any type of powder product and we all know Real Techniques brushes are just fabulous.
Moving away from base products, the Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner is one I always end up coming back to, especially when my felt tip liners just aren’t working. It’s a great liquid eyeliner, very pigmented and doesn’t transfer onto the eyelid throughout the day, the only thing I don’t like is that it is not as matte as I would sometimes like, but it is great for around £4. The Revlon Lip Butters are a no brainer for me, I always have one lurking in my bag somewhere. They’re great for applying a sweep of colour when i’m on the go and they have so many different shades available. When it comes to nails there is nowhere better to go than with the Topshop Nail Polish’s. I own quite a few of these now and they are the best ones out there by far, some of the formulas can be a little hit and miss but they wide variety of colours on offer are to die for. I’m really eyeing up their most recent pastel additions and i’m trying to not cave by purchasing all of them!
When picking the products for this post, it occurred to me that I don’t own any high street eye shadow palettes not too sure why to be honest but the L’oreal Color Infaillible Eye Shadows are great for when it comes to pressed pigments. They’re great for when you want a quick sweep of colour that can be blended for a more subtle look, or added into the crease for a little more of a dramatic look. The Rimmel Soft Kohl Eyeliner was another no brainer for me as i’ve owned about four of these now. It’s just a great black eyeliner that lasts really well on the waterline and also works for when you can’t be bothered with a liquid eyeliner.
These last two products, are ones that I think will always be my all time favourite products. Starting off with a lip crayon, the one i’ve picked out is the Revlon Color Burst Matte Lip Crayon. I love any type of lip crayon, but at the moment i’m loving these new ones from Revlon. They’re so handy to apply a little colour to the lip without being too bold and in your face. Lastly is my favourite mascara of all time and that is the Collection Multiplier Mascara. I discovered this after the discounted the skyscraper mascara (boohoo) and I haven’t looked back since. It works so well to add a nice amount of curl and lift to the lashes without them going all clumpy and horrible.
So that is my ten favourite products for under £10! I hope this has helped some of you guys, especially you people who like to shop on a budget like I do.
