Beauty Top 10, £10 or Below.

Everyone loves a beauty bargain, so today I'm going to share with you my current Top 10 products that cost just £10 or below. Brace yourself for a lengthy post, I've attempted to keep it short and sweet but can't help but gush about the products I'm loving, enjoy!
 
Maybelline The Rocket Mascara, £6.79 
I can always rely on Maybelline for their mascaras, I love The Rocket, Mega Plush and The Falsies. All offer seperation, volume and length and at under £7 I think they're the best brand to go to if you're looking for a good quality, yet affordable mascara.
 
Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick, £4.49
I am absolutely head over heels for the shade Bulletproof Beige, it's a gorgeous champagne, golden shade with shimmer and works beautifully as an inner corner highlight. They're incredibly pigmented and creamy but I haven't tried it as a base as I'd imagine it'd crease on my oily lids. If you are looking for a base product, Rimmel also have their Colour Tattoo's and Shadow Paints which are both long lasting and affordable.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, £4.19
Blogged about by many, this concealer IS as good as people claim. It offers great coverage, works well under the eyes or as a spot concealer and at under a fiver, is a massive bargain. The only downside is the lack of shade range.

Soap & Glory Lid Stuff Eyeshadow Palette, 'Whats Nude', £10
I've repurchased this three times already as it makes for the ideal neutral palette. All four shades are incredibly pigmented, creamy and blend like a dream. With this you can create a natural eye, then turn it in to an evening look easily.

Natural Collection Lipstick, £1.99
At just £1.99 the Natural Collection lipsticks are an absolute steal. My favourite is 'Apple Blossom', similar to Mac's 'Creme De Nude' and 'Fleshpot' a true nude, with pink undertones. Packaging is the only let down, but for a budget brand - it could be worse!

Maybelline Vivid Lipsticks, £7.19
With 5 bright shades to pick from, Maybelline Vivids are offering some unseen shades to High Street stores. My favourite is 'Fuschia Flash', which appears purple in the tube but translates on the lips to a bright pink, with purple undertones, followed closely by 'Shocking Coral'.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks, £5.49
Raved about by many as matte lipsticks are hard to find from lower priced brands, the Kate Moss lipstick matte lipsticks come in five shades - my favourites being '107' a deep, cherry red and '113' a peach toned nude. They're highly pigmented, long lasting and feel comfortable on the lips!

Barry M Gelly Nail Varnishes, £3.99
Another Blogger favourite, the Gelly Nail paints from Barry M created quite a social media storm upon release. These offer a high shine finish, combined with great pigmentation and a streak free formula. The best of the bunch are 'Lychee', a pale nude with taupe undertones, great with a tan and 'Raspberry', a beautiful and classic, deep red. 'Guava' and 'Blue Grape' are also worth a mention for their unique colourings and there are plenty of other shades in the range.

Korres Lip Butter, £8
I have two of these, 'Pomegranate', a sheer coral and 'Jasmine', a pale pink. They offer a sheer tint of colour to the lips along with a nice shine and deeply moisturise your lips at the same time. They contain natural oils, shea butter and leave out nasty Parabens, Sulphates and Synthetic Fragrances.

Topshop Cream Blush, £6
When Topshop first released their cosmetics line I was highly dubious about the quality of the products. I didn't like MissGuided or New Looks attempt at producing make up but I neednt worry where Topshop was concerned. Every product I've tried from their range I've been impressed with, their cream blushers come in a range of shades, apply with ease and have great colour pay off. I think all the Topshop range is well priced and it's also worth checking out with highlighters and lip product.

Worth A Mention; Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in 'Hot Chocolate' and Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner.
Eco Tools 'Airbrush Concealer' and 'Tapered Blush' brushes.
17 Wild Metallic Eyes in 'Wild Nude'.
Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons, foundations and Bronzing Primer.
I would of included items from MUA, but I have a post on the brand planned for the future revealing some of their best products.

Of course there are MANY other products that could be spoken about, but I decided to go with a mix of current favourites and well loved reliable cosmetics. High Street bargains are loved by all, so any products you think are worth a mention, feel free to comment below and share with others!

  3. I really want to try some of the new scandal eyes stuff. I've heard great things. The collection concealer will always be in my makeup bag! It does the job and is so affordable.

    1. You do, the Topshop blushers are lovely and not overly expensive either, I've not tried 16 in the Kate Moss lipstick but I'll definitely go for a swatch next time I'm in Boots or Superdry! x

  10. That soap and glory palette looks amazing! I've been meaning to try collection lipsticks for ages but always been a bit sceptical because of the price but i'll definitely have a go now! I've also been loving the healthy mix foundation which is just over £10 I think, but it's the best foundation i've tried in a long time!
