Top 10 Products under £10 - Beauty and The Boy

Hey Beauties!

I thought i would do some a little different today. I thought this would be a good idea to show you my favourite products under or just a little over £10 ((one product has gone up by £2 but it was £10 when i bought it)) 
I always think that just because something is expensive it doesn’t make it good ive used a lot of more affordable makeup and its just as good if not better sometimes:

Good Things Miracle Mattifying Moisturiser (£7.99)- This moisturiser is perfect for anyone who wants to be mattified or anyone with Oily skin, it works to hydrate the skin but to also control shine and oil. Holly Arabella actually introduced me to this range and i absolutely love it

Body Shop Matte it Primer (£12)- This product is a less expensive version of the MAC Matte Primer it basically does what it says in the same it prepare the surface of the skin for foundation by creating a smooth canvas and controlling oil by mattifying the skin. I find it doesn’t absorb as fast at MAC Matte but it does the same job.

Maybelline “Fit Me” Foundation (£7.99)- This foundation is great for anyone with drier skin i haven’t really used it on people with oily skin so i can’t say anything but if anyone has used it with oily skin leave a comment. I find its great for dry skin because it doesn’t emphasise dry spots and it just applies really well without transferring which to me is quite a good thing for a drugstore foundation .

Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19)- To anyone who blogs and a lot of people out there as well this concealer is the holy grail as its just a perfect concealer a company that offers products at such a low price you would never think it would have made such a perfect product. The texture is soft and creamy it doesn’t settle into fine lines it doesn’t crease and its great for all skin tones and types

Sleek MakeUP Pout Paint (£4.99)- This are a great dupe for the OCC Liptars as i feel like are quite the same texture and pigment. These last a really long time they stain the lips and you dont need a lot of product at all i would say smaller than a pea sized and they will last you forever! They come in a variety of shades such as pinks, purples, reds even blue and white!

No7 Sheer Temptation Lipstick (£9.50)- I really loved the colour “Showy” because it was a super bright neon pink but when applied it just a wash of colour that looks like a sheer pink so its not as scary as it looks in the tube, as a sheer lipstick it wont last for ages but it does last a while before you have to reapply


Topshop Cream Blush (£6)- These cream blushes come in a variety of different pigmented colours which last for ages! i think thats why they are such a hit with everyone because they last and they are easy to apply i love Flush because its such a bright colour but it can be used as a really natural colour or super bright. Pictured is Butterscotch a bronzy neutral tone which has a bit of sheen so its perfect if you just want a bit of colour

L’oreal Gel Intenza (£8.50)- This liner is quite like the YSL gel liners in the fact they have both got particles of shimmer contained in the liner, it applies in a solid black line with golden shimmer through it as its pigmented you only need to do the line once. This liner lasts all day on most of the clients i work with with the exception of those with really oily lids

Barry M Dazzle Dust (£4.59)- I absolutely love these little pots of magic! I dont really use the solid colours because im not a big pigment user but for the glitters they are perfect they are fine enough to use everyday because they just add shimmer instead of chunky glitter, they look amazing in the inner corner or on the lid for a bit of sparkle and for such a low price its a steal!


No7 Lip Pencil (£6.75)- These are quite great products because they are retractable liners for lips so that means no sharpening with is such a time saver! i particularly love the Nude shade as it just makes the best nude lip for that “you lip but better” look. For the clients ive used it on it has lasted through the shoot or event so we know it lasts for a long time!

  • If you haven't already heard Kylie Jenner is now dipping into skincare as well as makeup.

All I'll say is it's completely different putting a makeup line together as that's rather easy but trying to put together a skincare line that's actually useful and not a bunch of generic rubbish is harder.

Kylie Jenner has effectively repackaged one of the worst face scrubs known to man, St Ives Apricot Scrub! 
This new scrub will contain crushed walnut shells as it's main exfoliant which couldn't be worse for the skin as it has the tendency to cause micro tears in the skin if it's used roughly and can lead to all sorts of problems from letting bacteria into the skin to comprising your hydrolipid barrier.

With all of these new technology in skincare coming from brands like Deciem it feels like this Kylie Jenner product is coming from the late 2000s. To me it just screams lack of thought and can we talk about how generic it is? It's like all she wants to do is  make more money instead of actually formulating something actually useful.

What do you think about this new range? .

  • I know your first instance when it's really sunny is to strip off and enjoy the sun and while it's true you should enjoy the gorgeous days of summer you should be protecting yourself.

While we should be wearing sunscreen everyday it's especially important on beautiful sunny days like these.

You should be applying a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every 2/3 hours when you're out in direct sunlight.

It's recommended that you use at least 20p piece size of sunscren for your face. 
I absolutely love the @larocheposayuki Anthelios range especially the Fluid version of Anthelios. I also really like @colorescienceuk sunforgettable mineral SPF 50 powder for reapplication when wearing makeup.

  • There's this idea that somehow applying more of a product will get you better results but this isn't true.

The opposite is actually true if you apply more all you'll get is unnecessary irritation and it might put you off using a product.

When using actives try to follow the recommendations on the back of the packaging.

I know I've done this before when I first used AHAs and it didn't go well but I'm glad I eventually learned as my mum would say "I'm a bull in a China shop" 🤣🤣

  • *SKINCARE ROUTINE*
I thought I would mix up my routine a little bit lately.

Cleanser- @dermalogicauk  Special Cleanser - I love this little bottle it's great for using when at the gym. It's a basic cleanser that gets the job done.

Tone/Serum - @katesomervilleskincare Dermalquench Liquid Lift *gifted* -  I apply it straight after cleansing. This is a spray loaded with hyaluronic acid and oxygen, apparently it's meant to felt firm and smooth whilst quenching and plumping the skin hence the name. It really is amazing if I'm honest it's as if you're just wiping away any dehydration and puffiness.

Serum - @officialmedik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense *gifted* - Whilst I do feel like this is way too expensive for what it is I do really like it. Hydr8 is really hydrating and soothing Its great for using with a retinol as it helps to combat the dryness with the Natural  Moisturising Factors (NMF)

Treatment - @sundayriley A+ Retinoid Serum *gifted - This is a brand new retinoid to me I originally used Luna which was the first ever retinoid I used so I was pretty excited to try this out. it says it's 6% it's more like a 4/5% because there's no way the plant like ingredients actually constitute as retinol. Other than that I'm liking it it doesn't compare to Adapalene but it's still good.

Moisturiser - @stubborncosmetics Customised Moisturiser *gifted - I am freaking loving this moisturiser it's so good to have a different moisturiser for the different parts of my face. I'm amazed no one has had this idea before it's so simple yet genius! I have combination skin so there is a side for the dry patches and a side for the oily parts of my face. This is a truly balancing moisturiser ❤️

  • To be honest I only found this out recently and wanted to share it with all of you! 🙌🏼❤️ I remember back to early 2018 when I first used Adapalene I kind of went a little hamfisted and sensitised my skin for the couple weeks that followed I realised my skin wasn't as aggrevated when I would pat products into my skin.

From them on when I felt a bit sensitive I would pat everything on!

I also found that even when not sensitised if I pat on really strong actives there was no aggrevation compared to rubbing it in.
