Budget Buys: New Beauty At Boots This Month

Budget Buys: New Beauty At Boots This Month

Few places are better for affordable beauty than Boots, and last year, Britain’s biggest chemist lined their shelves with 805 new products and 20 new brands. From cult classics to new-gen skincare, it’s now a one-stop destination. Here are 9 of our new favourite make-up buys landing there this month...

Clinique Gel Hydration BB Treatment, £18.50

We instantly fell for this nourishing BB cream. Offering more coverage than most, it could easily replace your foundation on good skin days thanks to its Transforming Tint Release Technology. With all the skincare benefits of a moisturiser too, it’s guaranteed to be a brand best-seller. You’ll love the juicy, sheer glow it leaves behind post-application.

e.l.f. Puff Puff Primer, £8 

Shrinking your pores might be impossible, but e.l.f.’s latest primer helps to give a smooth, refined texture to skin. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, sunflower seed oil and vitamins A & C, the cashmere-soft texture provides a veil to give a glass-like effect. It also fills out fine lines and bumps, without feeling slippery or thick. A pea-sized amount is enough to prep your entire face for foundation.

Fenty Beauty Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara, £21

Fenty have launched their first ever mascara in Boots and it doesn’t disappoint. Ticking every box, it lengthens, curls, lifts and adds a fanned-out finish thanks to the brush’s lightweight bristles. The ‘fat to flat’ brush has two sides – one to hold more product and load the formula on fast, while the flat side helps shape, define and curl lashes to avoid clumping.

Max Factor Miracle Second Skin Foundation, £12.99

Need a new base? Look to Max Factor’s new creamy hybrid foundation that’s packed with probiotics to strengthen and soften skin while still providing impressive coverage. The coconut milk formula leaves skin with a dewy dry down, with the added benefit of SPF20. Buff it in with a brush for best results.

Revlon Skin Lights Bronzer, £9.99

This affordable formula contains metallic pigments that blend seamlessly into skin with a sweep of a fluffy brush, giving a glowing, soft, bronzed look. It goes on lightly, too, so you can build it up gradually, to ensure it never looks orange or muddy.

No7 Custom Blend Highlighting Drops, £13.50

These highlighting drops create a subtle, pearlescent glow that never looks too theatrical or shiny. You can wear them solo, or mixed into your base or primer for extra luminosity. Just a couple of drops makes even the dullest skin look instantly healthier and more radiant. Any way you wear it, you can still guarantee a natural finish.

NYX Multi-Purpose Buffing Brush, £14

There’s a reason this sold out when it first launched, because it covers all your application needs. Thankfully it’s now back in stock, so grab it fast. Created to work with your foundation, blusher, bronzer and just about any formula and texture, it gives a seamless second-skin finish thanks to its fluffy round bristles  which make blending so easy. If you only have the budget for one make-up buy this month, make it this.

Essie Polishes, £7.99

One of the best brands for nail polishes, Essie have added to their eponymous line with a quick dry and chip resistant formula for even better results. Our favourite part of this new range is the sludgy, on-trend shades. Think suits-all greys, muted mauves and rustic oranges that are surprisingly flattering.

It’s Skin Mask Sheets, £5.99

Loved by the likes of Lisa Eldridge, Korean brand It’s Skin is always a top-performer. We love these skin-quenching masks that not only hydrate, but also prime skin for make-up with a serum-like formula that gives maximum results. Expect to see a hydrating, brightening result almost immediately – ideal before a night out, or for days where you need to fake a healthy glow.
