Beauty: Top 10 Under £10

In makeup, as in general life, you get what you pay for. The more expensive products are likely to be higher quality. But there are exceptions to this rule. You don't have to splash out on everything, as a few high street or 'drug store' brands have some of their formulas nailed. Today I'm going to share with you my top 10 products costing less than a tenner (score!).
First off, we have L'Oreal Paris' Super Liner Perfect Slim Intense in Black (on offer for £4.99). The super fine nib on this liner allows you to get the slickest swipe of colour along your lash line, with the ease of using a pen-style liner. Next is Rimmel's Stay Matte Pressed Powder (£3.99). I have the transparent shade, allowing me to set my makeup without adding extra coverage. This product allows you to keep your makeup in place without risking the cakey look. Maybelline's EyeStudio Colour Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Eyeshadow in Pink Gold (£4.99) is an amazing alternative to powder shadows. As much as I love playing around with my palette's, the whole routine just isn't feasible day to day. This eyeshadow can be dabbed on the lids in seconds and you're good to go. Natural Collection's Eye Lines Pencil in Soft Brown (£1.99) is a great product when creating softer makeup looks. The brown is gentler than the harsh black tones of most liners and creates a more natural look. Real Techniques' Miracle Complexion Sponge (£5.99) is one of my favourite discoveries this year. It's the first proper sponge I've ever had, and its an utter steal at under a tenner. I use it to blend my concealer beneath my eyes and the sponge leaves a photoshop finish. Bourjois' Contour Clubbing EyeLiner in Electric Blue (£4.99) is one of those products that's just fun! I feel instantly ready to party when I pop this on my lid. I wore this to an Arabian Nights themed event and I loved the way it looked on my waterline. (Let me know if you would like to see a tutorial with this!). Real Techniques' Expert Face Brush (£9.99) is my go-to brush. I use it to blend, apply foundation, add powder- basically everything face-related. I would be lost without this baby in my makeup bag. L'Oreal Paris' Superstar Mascara (£10.99) is technically 99p over a tenner, but considering how wonderful the product is, I feel its worth mentioning here. The mascara has two wands, one for applying a white thickening primer and the other for adding a lifting black coat. On a day to day basis I wear the black coat alone, and this works wonderfully alone. Rimmel's Exaggerate Lip Liner in East End Snob (£3.99) has been fairly hyped as a Kylie Jenner-esque shade for a slither of a price of the MAC liners. It's a beautiful colour and has a fairly lengthy staying power. Last but definitely not least we have Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair (£4.19). This has a well-deserved cult status in the world of beauty. I use the fair shade for my under eye circles and general highlighting. Combine this concealer with the miracle complexion sponge and dark circles become a distant memory.
And that's it! Hope you liked my list, let me know which budget products you guys love!
