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!
