Favourite £10 and Under Beauty Products

[ad contains gifted product] I love a bargain budget product as much as I love a high-end one so I thought I would share some of my favourite £10 and under beauty products. Now some of my favourite drugstore/cheaper products are from Colourpop however because of the fact that you can't get it readily available in the UK, and the customs charges cost you a lot more than £10 I've decided to omit them sadly. However, here's a couple of UK drugstore bits! 

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara £9.99 - I feel like I have to include this mascara because it's been a firm favourite for years and years now. Everyone has been raving about it's newer version, the Maybelline Lash Sensation Sky High Mascara which I am also fully obsessed with at the moment as well, and they are just both great. I find the Sky High version, is more lengthening whereas the original Lash Sensational, is more of a curling one, but they both give a nice strong bold look without being overly clumpy.  

e.l.f Hydrating Hydrating Satin Camo Concealer £5I used to be a fanatic user of the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer for my drugstore concealer of choice, but so many people raved about this concealer and it's become a firm favourite. As I've got dry skin and even more so, dry under eyes, I wanted to find a concealer that was lightweight, hydrating, yet still had coverage and brightened up my under eyes. I find that this concealer does all those things and at a bargain of £5. 

Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner £4.49 - I only tend to tight-line when it comes to eyeliner nowadays but I've finally found my favourite eyeliner and it is one that I use everyday. I find it stays on my lash line, and doesn't smudge or give me panda eyes. The kohl liner is so soft as well I don't feel it tugs my eyes either. 

L'Oreal Infallible Foundation £10.99- Okay look I know it's technically at 10.99 but you try finding a good drugstore foundation under a tenner. Plus it just about in the £10 range so I'm including it. I've struggled to find a good foundation for a while but I've been loving this one for the coverage and finish it gives me. As I have dry skin I do need to prime my face with a good radiant primer (yet to find a budget friendly option though so hit me up with your suggestions). I find that my skin looks so soft and although I wouldn't say "24 hour" wear it definitely does last a day at work. 

L'Oreal Life's a Peach Blusher £8.99 - If you're looking for the perfect peach-toned blush for Summer and Spring this is the one for you. Not only does this smell divine I love the creamy texture of this blusher as it effortlessly glides on top of any of my makeup. I find it has a nice amount of pigment in the first instance, but you can still layer it without it looking chalky or heavy on your skin. 

e.l.f Baked Highlighter Moonlight Pearls £5- I haven't really found masses of drugstore highlighters that have really impressed me but this e.l.f baked highlighter is definitely one of my favourites I've tried out. This is that golden champagne shade that is a perfect not too yellow, not too white tone. I can find it can come off quite chalky looking, but when you ensure to use a setting spray it settles really nicely on the skin and if you use a finer highlighting brush, with more sparse bristles, like a fan brush, it applies really nicely. 

Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Creme* £6.99 - I have quite a few of these in different shades and they are some of my favourite lipglosses I wear. 

e.l.f Bite Size Eyeshadow 'Cream & Sugar' £3 - Whilst I only have one of these palettes, I am obsessed with this little quad. For only £3 I honestly think this is the best and cutest hand-sized eye palette I own. It's an easy chuck-in-the-handbag to fix your makeup before going out post-work, but the pigmentation and blending properties are of that of Too Faced. I love the two shimmers in this palette and they work just as well using a brush as they do your finger.

e.l.f SRSLY Satin Lipstick 'Nectar' £3 - Okay I promise, the last of the e.l.f products what can I say, they do drugstore/affordability very well. I have been wearing this lipstick most days when I'm looking for a full coverage peach lipstick. I find the formula really soft and creamy and whilst the packaging isn't the most luxurious what do you expect for £3?
