Top 10 Under £10 | The Makeup Edition


As I'm sure you all know by now, I'm a makeup junkie. My collection of products is big enough to rival a small Boots store and I can't get enough of trying new products! As much as I love my high end goodies from the likes of NARS, MARC or Charlotte Tilbury, I also love finding a bargain from my favourite drugstore brands. With this being said, I've decided to start a little 'top 10 under £10' series which will showcase 10 of my fave products you can pick up for £10 or less. I'm going to start with makeup and will probably do skin care, hair care and nails too!


First up are the bases and two of my all time favourites are from Bourjois, my top drugstore beauty brand. I love both their Healthy Mix foundaion (£9.99 and 123 Perfect CC Cream (£9.99) for a flawless look. I find both of these products have great coverage without feeling too heavy and they make my skin look radiant. Another Bourjois face product I love is their Bronzing Powder & Highlighter Duo* (£7.99). This one of their newer products but it's basically the same as their original 'chocolate' bronzer with the addition of a highlighter. I love this because it gives a natural bronzed look, smells like chocolate (always a bonus!) and combined with the highlight it gives my skin a lovely candlelit glow. 

I'm a little bit obsessed with highlighters and glowy skin so another of my high street favourites are the Topshop powder highlighters. I love the cute black and white packaging despite the fact I've got two of them now and my fave is called 'Sunbeam', a lovely gold tone. It's a very finely milled powder and haves a lovely metallic finish without looking glittery. 


When it comes to eye shadow I do find high end is better and stick with my palettes from Too Faced, Urban Decay or MAC. However, one eye shadow I do like from the high street is the Maybelline Color Tattoo in the shade 'And On Bronze' - it can be used as a base for other shades or on its own if you just want a quick sweep of colour across the lid. I love the taupe shade and the metallic finish is really pretty! I must pick up a few more of these!

Two items I always buy from the drugstore are liquid liner and mascara. I personally think the cheaper ones are just as good, if not better, than high end versions and they're just two of those products I don't see the point in spending a lot of money on. My favourite liquid liner is the Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner (£2.99) as it's SO easy to use, really pigmented and long lasting. It also costs less than a fiver - who can complain at that?! My favourite mascara is the Bourjois One Seconde Volume mascara (£9.99) and I've gone through a couple of these now as I just love it so much. It gives my lashes length, curl and thickness - everything I want from my mascara. Another lash product I'd highly recommend are the Vintage Cosmetic Company's eyelash curlers. I've got the rose gold ones (of course) and I love them - they make my lashes look 10x longer than they do before using them.


Finally, my favourite makeup item - the lip products! My all time favourite high street lip product would have to be the Revlon Lip Butters (£7.99) as they come in a great range of bold colours, they're pigmented and really hydrating on the lips. I must have 6 or 7 of them now and I'd still buy more - that's how much I love them. Another lip product I love from the drugstore are the Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons* (£7.99). Similar to the Lip Butters, they're really hydrating on the lips and have a lovely glossy finish. They aren't quite as pigmented as the Lip Butters but that means they're perfect for every day wear when I don't want something too bold.

So there we have it, my top 10 makeup items that all cost less than £10! Boots currently have a 3 for 2 offer on Bourjois products so now might be a good time to grab some of these things if you fancy giving them a try. 

Have you tried any of these products? Let me know your favourites!

  15. I love Topshop's beauty range, I love their Glow highlighter so much! They're always the first place I go to for a new blusher, they're so good! I always overlook Revlon and I have no idea why, may have to look into their lip butters :)

    Childhood obesity has, from being an aberration, become a cause of concern. Nowadays, there is increasing focus on the health of children and teenagers, and the lack of fitness in that particular age group is constantly under a spotlight.

  43. I must admit that when the Revlon Lip Butters first launched, I went a bit...ok a lot crazy! I love them for a touch of color and much needed moisture :) So jealous that Bourjois is so readily available to you, seeing it so much on the blogosphere has me wanting one of everything!

  55. I didn't think much of Bourjois CC Cream at first but I can see the difference now... Maybe it's because I've tanned but even though it still feels a bit gross on my face, I've grown to like it! You had me interested in that Bronzer and Highlighting duo, though! x
