10 Beauty Buys Under £10

Beauty products that really work don’t have to cost a fortune. If you’re after affordable skincare, purse-friendly make-up or haircare that works on a budget, there’s plenty out there for you. Here are ten of the best for under £10…

Catrice Cosmetics Eyeconista Lash Millionizer Volume Mascara, £4.35

Germany’s best-selling make-up brand has finally landed in the UK, bringing with it a mascara that promises no clumps and 180% more volume. We’ve tried it and were impressed by the jet-black formula that holds a curl and adds noticeable volume after just a few sweeps. It’s ophthalmologically tested, so those with sensitive eyes can still benefit from it.

2. Morphe Liquid Full Coverage Concealer, £9

Billed as an ‘unbeatable base’, this provides creamy, full coverage that can be used all over for foundation too. The larger brush makes application easier than ever, covering blemishes, dark spots and any redness with just a few dots – a little goes a very long way. For best gradation of colour, buff in with a brush to build and blend.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils, £5.50

Eyeliner and shadow in one, these crayon pencils make smokey eyes and smudged liner application a breeze. The pigment payoff is great, while the texture is extremely blendable, so you can work with one individual shade or mix and match for a statement eye.

Kiko Party All Night Jelly Highlighter, £9.99

This affordable jelly highlighter delivers a champagne-coloured shine that’s believable and light reflective. Brush on a little bit to the highest points of your face for a sheeny glow, or mix it with your foundation for more of a chrome finish.

Zoeva Eyeshadow Fix, £9

We’ve struggled to find primers that prevent eye make-up from smudging, but this little tube seemed to keep everything intact when we put it to the test. Loaded with rice silk, it’s ideal for oily skin types or anyone that finds their eyeliner and eyeshadow tend to crease or smudge come 3pm. The key is to apply a tiny dab on each lid and allow it to set fully before going in with your make-up.

The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres

Containing one of the highest percentages of vitamin C, The Ordinary’s clever formula is well-balanced with plumping hyaluronic acid, so there’s never any irritation. It works to smooth, brighten and plump even the dullest complexions. It’s technically a serum (despite its thicker consistency) so apply it pre-moisturiser for the best results.

Maybelline New York Tattoo Liner In Ink Black Noir, £9.99

Smudge-proof, sweat resistant and easy to remove, Maybelline’s latest inky liner is a must-have for those who love a feline flick. Deep, dark black, it leaves behind a shiny finish that looks expensive, while the thin applicator nib creates serious precision and thin lines that are easy to build upon.

Milani Classic Colour Statement Lipsticks, £8.50

New to Boots, we recently discovered Milani and its cult statement lipsticks. Laced with vitamins A and C, they have the consistency of a nourishing balm, yet dry down to a vibrant wash of colour that never feels drying or like it’s settling into cracks. They’re also cruelty-free and available in a vast number of colours, so there’s something for everyone to play with.

SGX NYC The Do-It-All 3-In-1 Dry Texture Spray, £7.99

A dry shampoo and hairspray hybrid, this hard worker refreshes hair by absorbing oil while providing strands with a light hold and effortless texture. A must-have for extending a blow-dry, ensuring curls go the distance, or for days when you just want to zhoosh up lank hair.

10. Sleek I Divine Eye Palette All Night Long, £8.99

Sleek does some of the best affordable eyeshadow palettes and its latest is no exception. Jam-packed with suits-all shades, this wearable palette houses everything you need for a natural, smokey eye with soft pinks, taupes and coffee hues – ideal when you want to veer away from black eye make-up. The high colour payoff really goes the distance too.
