Top 10 budget beauty products blog post

| The Best Budget Makeup Products On The Market! |

I love to treat myself to a high-end product every now and then {probably too often, ha!} but budget products can be just as good sometimes! Although I think some budget brands are amazing, others can be a little hit and miss so finding the right budget products that are just as good as their high-end counterpart can be a little tricky sometimes. But today, I've rounded up 10 of my favourite budget buys than get the seal of approval from moi.......

| 1. L'oreal True Match |

If you read my favourite foundations post then you'll already know how much I love this foundation! It's my favourite everyday foundation as the light-medium coverage covers my imperfections whilst still looking quite natural. It has a satin finish which has the ability to make my skin look healthy and refreshed despite the lack of water intake and the late nights - I'm guilty of both, sorry skin! *insert the monkey with his hands over his eyes emoji*

| 2. Ps Pro Translucent Powder |

Everyone needs a translucent powder in their makeup bag and I've been using a cheap but cheerful one from Penneys/Primark. I'd love to try the Laura Mercier powder that everyone raves about, but for now, I don't have the budget for it so I'll be sticking to this one. As my skin gets quite dry I don't tend to use powder but I've been loving this one for setting my concealer. It doesn't cling to any dry patches or accentuate them, sets concealer well, and is great for 'baking' too.

| 3. Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer |

This is a very underrated product here on my blog as I don't mention it as much as I should! The formula is very creamy and hydrating making it perfect for under the eyes. It's also quite brightening and the coverage is up there with some of my expensive products. Often I find that budget under-eye concealers are quite sheer and lacking in the coverage department but this one completely covers my dark circles and brightens things up a little in that area also.

| 4. Sleek Brow Kit |

This is hands down my favourite brow product of all time! The gel in it is fantastic; Creamy, easy to apply and sets unruly brows in place. Although I'm obsessed with the wax, I'm not really a fan of the powder in all honesty. It's not that the powder is a bad product, it's just because the shade doesn't really suit me. I find it looks quite ashy on me so I tend to leave that step out. But the gel is truly amazing and so amazing that it has been crowned my favourite budget brow product of all time!

| 5. Maybelline colour Tattoo in 'On and on bronze' |

I couldn't write a budget beauty post without giving a shoutout to the Maybelline colour tattoos. This gorgeous bronzey shade with its incredible creamy formula is the perfect one swipe wonder eyeshadow for those sleepy Monday mornings. It has a shimmery finish which looks incredible on its own for a subtle daytime look or it can be paired with some darker shades for a statement look. Basically, it's a great all-rounder eyeshadow!

| 6. Zoeva Cocoa Blends Palette |

This handy little palette was only €17 but the quality of the shadows could rival those from Urban Decay! It's the perfect Autumn palette with a vast array of warm shades ranging from a stunning cranberry to a dark black. This palette has you covered with Autumnal warm shades!

| 7. Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Milk' |

I love using this as an eyeshadow base to make the shadows POP! It's particularly good for making golds, pinks and cranberry shades stand out - perfect for the Autumn festivities *wink wink* It also cancels out any veins or pigmentation on the eyes and creates a smooth base for shadow application. I'm a big fan of wearing white liner in my waterline to brighten up my eyes and make myself look more awake. However, I don't tend to use this product for that as it's just a bit too big.

| 8. Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara |

One of the best mascaras I've used as it provides volume, length as well as lifting the lashes and curling them slightly! I don't even need to sue a curler with this, it's that good! The super black shade provides a dramatic look to the lashes and you really only need one coat for your lashes to be completely transformed!

| 9. Essence Lip Liner in 'Satin Mauve' |

I love budget lip liners and I think they're just as good as my Mac ones. I've never tried any of Essence's liners but I was really impressed with this one! It's a medium mauve shade which suits Mac Brave perfectly. The formula of the liner is outstanding, and it's the best budget liner I've used to date! It's just as pigmented as Mac's liners, literally glides on and has pretty good lasting power. The only downside to it is, I find that I have to sharpen it a lot more than any other liner I have, I'm not sure why but it just gets blunt very easily. But asides from that, it's incredible! 

| 10. Kiko Gossamer Emotion Lipstick in '102' | 

I won't rave about this too much as I already did that not so long ago in my favourite lip combo post. This muted nude pink suits the liner above really well and the pigmentation is the best out of all of my other high street lip products. I would describe the finish as satin, it has a slight sheen to it, and the formual is creamy and comfortable to wear.
