10 Beauty Buys Under £10

From bushy brow gels to glow-giving bronzers and a mascara that costs just £4.99, this month’s affordable buys are as good as ever. Here are our favourite new finds, all under £10…

Boots Brightening Body Serum, £4

Colder weather and thicker clothing don’t mean we should neglect our limbs. Cue Boots’ new Brightening Serum which uses vitamin C and YUZU extract to slough away dead skin cells and refine uneven bumps at speed. The thin, serum consistency absorbs quickly, so you don’t need to worry about grease or stickiness. Ideal for very dry skin.

Catrice Cosmetics Eyeconista High Volume High Care Mascara, £4.99

Catrice is one of our favourite high-street brands, and their new mascara is as efficacious as the rest of their buys. Brimming with hemp oil, the inky formula deposits just the right amount of product to lengthen, define and volumise without any clumps. It has a clever, curved wand too, which means you can be more precise when adding bulk at the inner and outer corners. A true high-street win at £4.99.

E.L.F. Dewy Setting Mist, £9

Good setting sprays are hard to come by – especially ones that deliver good glow while simultaneously extending the life of your make-up. This one does both, with coconut, green tea and cucumber, all of which keep skin hydrated, instead of sticky or oily. Plus, the mist itself is incredibly fine, so it never interferes with the rest of your look. Keep it deskside to hit refresh throughout the day.

Milani Mineral Bronze Glow Bronzer, £8

This powder bronze is the easiest way to extend your summer glow. With a year-round, believable tone, it suits everyone. Use a big brush to swirl both shades together, before buffing the colours into your cheeks and down the bridge of your nose – or wherever the sun would usually hit. The lighter tone will add luminosity, while the darker bronze will lend better definition and structure.

Morphe 2 Brow Crush Tinted Brow Gel, £7

We’re big fans of this bushy brow gel here at SheerLuxe. With a small brush head, it lets you build bulk and density while mimicking the appearance of thicker brow hairs. A must-try for those who love the ‘boy brow’ effect. Just be sure to wipe the wand against the tube to take off any excess pigment so you don’t deposit too much at once.

NYX Professional Make-Up Bare With Me Exclusive Cheek & Lip Tint, £9

With a satisfying gel texture, these hydrating tints melt into the skin for a glossy hit of colour that can be built upon or muted down for a sheer finish. Dab a little onto your cheeks and lips, while the cannabis sativa seed oil formula locks in moisture, keeping dryness and chapped skin at bay. The ideal buy for a healthier-looking complexion.

OGX Hydrate & Repair+ Argan Oil Hair Mask, £7.99

Whether your hair is thin, coarse, curly or thick, this mask has you covered. With conditioning argan oil and silk proteins, the rich formula gives even the dullest of strands visible shine, while sealing moisture into dry, brittle ends, disguising any signs of damage. Use it once or twice a week, massaging it into damp hair, before rinsing it off after 10-15 minutes. Leave it on for longer if your hair is particularly dry or knotty.

Revolution Rose Gold Retractable Kabuki Brush, £6

If you only buy one make-up brush, Kabuki’s are a top choice. Made with densely packed bristles and a chunky handle, they give you more control and work with every formula available – from creams to liquids and powders. Our current go-to is this one from Revolution. Great for on-the-go, the retractable sleeve is brilliant for preventing germs and bacteria building up, while the brush itself allows for a thorough, seamless blend.

Skin Republic Exfoliating Fruit Acid Hand Mask, £2.99 (was £5.99)

If your hands are peeling or suffering from the effects of regular washing, look to this transforming hand mask. AHAs (natural fruit acids) will perform a chemical exfoliation, gently dissolving dead, flaky skin to reveal smoother, softer hands. It may sound frivolous, but it’s a great way of nourishing weathered hands and restoring moisture. Plus, the mask is biodegradable, so you don’t get any throwaway guilt.

Skinny Tan Body Glow Medium Milk Spray, £9.99 

If you prefer a daily moisturiser that gradually builds a vacation-like glow, you’ll love this cream from Skinny Tan. A few spritzes are all that’s needed to build a believable tan that’s even and streak-free. What’s more, the slow build of colour allows you to go forward or pull back depending on your tanning preferences – it’s versatile and completely adjustable to you. Great for tanning novices and anyone seeking hydration, thanks to the addition of aloe vera and smoothing oils.
