10 BEST VALUE BEAUTY BUYS





1) ELF Mineral Eye Primer in sheer- Its free from parabens, preservatives and chemical dyes. I have sensitive skin and this is kind to eyes. It keeps eye makeup in place forever yep it will not budge. I love this eye primer however I don't think it makes eye shadows more vibrant. Its skin and purse friendly at £3 available at this website

2) Soap and Glory Smoulder Kohl eyeliner This is a creamy waterproof black eyeliner that lasts.
The packaging is great-there is a sharpener on the end with a cap to keep it clean .£5 Full review HERE


3) Barry M's signature dazzle dust and glitter dusts are packed with pigment and staying power for a mere £4. 59. I feel they are the cheapest pigment powders that create the greatest impact.

Barry M are also cruelty free and have a no animal testing policy on ingredients or finished product and do not engage other companies to test on their behalf. Check out their crayons (£4.59) for an eye shadow base they do not smudge and last well.

4) Real Techniques Core Collection Brushes: Initially £21.99  sounds like a lot- but the four brushes are fantastic quality, soft synthetic brushes that never shed and that are easy to clean. It works out as just over £5 a brush. If you don't want the whole set you can just sell the ones you don't want or buy from ebay.

This set contains the most wanted buffer brush. Personally I love the contour brush I have two one for blush and one for contouring. The eye detailer is really versatile it can be used for lips, inner corner of eye and as a smudger brush for the lower lid.

5) MUA eye shadow singles and palettes- The USP of this make up brand is that most of the range costs just £1. I love the eye shadows they are pigmented and last. The eye shadow palettes are even better- they have duped Urban Decay's Naked  (Undress Me) and Naked 2 palette (Undress me too, pictured above.). I also love their Heaven and Earth palette. (£4 for 12 shadows)

6) Sleek idivine Eye shadow palettes- I rave about these a lot, but there is good reason- very pigmented colours in good quality palettes in combinations that can create almost all looks and colours. The palettes also contain mirrors and are very affordable. My favourites are the Storm palette, Au Natural, Oh so special and Vintage Romance (pictured above) costing £7.99 for 12 shadows.

7) Miss Sporty eye shadow quad in smoky brown - This mini eye shadow quad can create both neutral and smoky eye looks with a formula that stays and lasts without primer all for £2.99

8) Bourjois Volume glam mascara one of Bourjois and drugstore cheaper mascara but it never flakes or smudges. It has been my HG for at least 16 years. It is water resistant so you can have a good cry wearing it but not a swim or shower. It makes lashes look thicker but is a slightly wet mascara. £7.99  My review is HERE

9) Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24hour cream eye shadows  Finally a drugstore/high street cream eye shadow that actually works! I felt I'd tried them all and concluded it was something only high end makeup companies could achieve. It's pigmented and stays on (maybe not for 24 hours though) and generally true to colour. Also they are so affordable at £4.99 you can collect them all! My favourites are on and On Bronze and Metallic pomegranate.

10) Accessorize nail polishes- For £4, I'm very impressed, especially the one coat range. Many brands promise one coat and fail miserably. This was what it said on the bottle. The quality and shade range is great and they seem to keep up with the trends.
