Top 10 Makeup Products Under €10

Hey!
We all like a good bargain and me being a student I don't like to splurge too much on makeup as money doesn't grow on trees and higher end makeup is expensive. Drugstore makeup is amazing now, there are many dupes for their more expensive counterparts. I thought I would share with you my favourite products under €10 For any of my international gals, €10 is the same as $11.50 and £9.10.

Kiko Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick

I featured this in a first impressions recently, click HERE to check it out, and I knew from the first application that I loved it. For €6.95 the quality is amazing and the packaging looks like something from a spy movie which I adore. This lipstick is very buttery but lasts like a liquid lipstick and doesn't dry out my lips. It is so pigmented and doesn't go into the grooves in my lips like some liquid lipsticks I own.

Flormar Watermelon Balm

I am obsessed with watermelon, the fruit, the scent, everything! When I saw this in a pharmacy I knew I needed to get it. I love the watermelon scent, it's sweet and is as if you have just cut into a fresh juicy watermelon. I love the pink tint that it gives your lips, it reminds me a lot of Maybelline Baby Lips and Benefit's Benebalm. It is not overly moisturising which is the only problem I have with it. Besides that with a price of €4.95 and an SPF of 15 what more would you want.


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

Is it weird to say that I like the smell of the NYX Lip Cream? Yeah, I thought so. This was the first liquid lipstick I bought and I still love it. I feel that NYX is a relatively good brand that doesn't set you back a whole pile. These cost €7.20 and it's perfect if you want to try out a colour that you aren't too sure you'll like. I loved the pigment and formula of this lipstick. It doesn't dry out my lips and lasts quite well except for when eating but I have never found a lipstick that doesn't budge while eating. It doesn't sink into the creases of my lips, that's a bonus, as I hate when that happens.

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream

Birthday Suit is my perfect nude and I love it to pieces but there are 2 things that aren't so desirable. Firstly the applicator is wonky, I find it far too long and it applies too much product and if I don't prep my lips it can go a little crusty and go into the creases of my lips. This thing does not budge no matter how hard you try to it is one of the worst lipsticks to swatch as it takes ages to come off but that's not always a bad thing. The packaging is pretty too and for €7 they aren't too bad.

PS Pro Longwear Mineralized Foundation

I was a little skeptical getting this foundation as it was only €6 in Primark but boy it went beyond my expectations. I wrote a post on it if you want to see my full opinion on it, click HERE. It is pale enough for me and lasts all day, I think it is as good as my holy grail Rimmel Match Perfection foundation, actually it's much better as it's cruelty free.

Kiko Glow Fusion Powder Highlighter

This is the most expensive product on this list at €9.95. Yet again, Kiko slays at the packaging game. I got this in 01 Brilliant Champagne and it is a subtle highlight for the paler people. I don't like a too intense highlight and this does the job, it is also buildable if I want a more bold highlight.

Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer

This is a high coverage concealer that hides any of my spots and dark under eye circles. I love the doe foot applicator which helps to do the upside down triangle under my eyes. I know I am not the first blogger to talk about how wonderful this concealer is. They have added a lighter shade to the already pale Porcellian. It lasts all day and I have no problem with it oxidising and at €3.95, it's as cheap as chips.

Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel

I have ranted and raved about how good this eyebrow gel everywhere, here, Instagram and Snapchat. Even though I haven't tried Benefit's Gimme Brow, I think it is a dupe as it is a coloured gel that contains fibres to make your eyebrows look fabulous. You can get 6 Essence Make Me Brows for the price of 1 Gimme Brow. It never gets crispy and adds definition and a third dimension to flat brows.
Unfortunately, they have discontinued one of their brunette shade but there's a blonde and a darker brown one.

NYX Tame & Frame Brow Pomade

My brows have upped their game since I got this brow product. For the days that I want a full face of makeup or an intense brow I go for this. It is simple and easy to use just make sure to have a thin angled brush. It is easy to blend out and make the brows look like brows instead of harsh blocks of colour.


Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Eyeshadow Palette

This is a dupe of the Naked 3 palette that's 1/10th the price. The pigmentation is good and lasts well on my eyes if I have primed my eyes correctly. Packaging wise, it is very plasticey but hasn't fallen apart yet. The only thing is I find it hard to make eye looks from this palette alone, I normally use this palette with the others in my collection to make a look. I don't know is it me or is it the palette but I think it's down to the fact that I prefer matte shades and there's only 5 in this palette. 

What are some of your favourite makeup products under €10?

Thanks for being awesome,

  1. NYX Soft Matte lip creams are just amazing! A liquid lipstick that doesn't feel like you are wearing a liquid lipstick is a winner in my eyes. The shade 'Amsterdam' is such a gorgeous colour! My favourite shades are 'London' and 'Abu Dhabi'.

  2. That Makeup Revolution palette looks awesome! I'm not sure if it's under 10 because of the price conversions, but I love the Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara :)

    1. Thanks for commenting Julia! The palette is lovely and is a dupe for the Naked 3 the only thing is it doesn't have as long of a staying power.
