Here at Shevolution HQ, we’re a little bit addicted to beauty products. Just a little bit. OK, maybe a lot.
Having spent most of our adult loves seeking our the best makeup and beauty buys around, we know all too well what it’s like to be let down by a product – and how it feels to find something you looooove.
So we wanted to share our wisdom with you, letting you in on our absolute faves that actual deliver on their promises. And best of all, they are all under £10!
From foundations to hair masks, and brow pencils to lip colours, here are just some of our top cheap beauty products that you actually can rely on.
The Ordinary Coverage Foundation, £6
We’re still not over how cheap this foundation is. It offers a medium coverage, doesn’t show up our pores or dryness, and comes in an impressive range of shades.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, £5.99
Let me slip into the first person for a second… This is the best concealer I’ve ever tried EVER. It’s been a constant repeat buy of mine for years and I wear it daily. No pore clogging, no drying, no budging to worry about either.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick, £8.49
Matte but not drying, this lip formula is both creamy and comfortable, plus it lasts for hours. Our personal favourite shade is Nude-ist, but there are plenty more to choose from.
3ina 3 in 1 Fixing Spray, £8.95
Move over Urban Decay All Nighter – this setting spray has serious staying power, not to mention a delicious dewy finish. Plus it doubles up as a primer, with a few pre-makeup sprays making your face stay in place all day.
NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil, £8
Love Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Wiz, but hate the price? Yeah, us too. This dupe is just as good, with a similar range of shades to choose from.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, £8.99
Maybelline is one the best-selling mascara brands in the world and with good reason. Not only are its lash lengtheners affordable, but they actually deliver fantastic results.
Sleek MakeUP Solstice Eye Highlighter Palette, £9.99
There are sooooo many highlighters out there, but this highly-rated palette condenses all the shades and formulas you’ll ever need to get your glow on.
Bleach Reincarnation Mask, £6.49
If, like us, you’ve bleached your hair recently, you need to get a tube of this. Leave it on for 10 minutes and your hair will feel buttery soft all over again. Trust us, we’ve tried it!
NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Pencil, £4.50
This ain’t called Wonder Pencil for nothing… Its a flesh-toned pencil which you can use pretty much anywhere, from highlighting your cupids bow to covering blemishes. We use it to really make our brows pop, easily blending it in with our fingers.
Makeup Revolution x Soph Extra Spice Eyeshadow Palette, £10
18 shades for £10? Yes please! This palette has near-perfect reviews from fans for its bold pigments and great blendability.
L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology Fine Hair Thickening Shampoo, £2.99
If you’ve got fine strands, you’re never going to find thick locks in a bottle, but this shampoo does have an impressive effect. We find it makes hair bigger and bouncier after a quick blowdry, giving the illusion of fuller locks.
TonyMoly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar, £7.50
It’s not just the super cute packaging of this lip product we love, but the colour and finish too. It delivers a dash of shiny pigment for a lighter, low-effort look and makes our lips feel more nourished too.
Lush Let The Good Times Roll Facial Cleanser, £7.50
Suffer from dryness or flaky skin? Get it gone with this tough yet gentle cleanser, which exfoliates like a dream. Plus it smells gorge too.
Revolution Beauty Precision Oval Makeup Brush, £9.99
A good quality brush can really make a difference to your makeup, and this one certainly does. We often use this instead of a beauty blender for an even smoother blended finish.
Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner in Black, £6
A good liquid liner is the holy grail of beauty, so we’re glad we’ve found such a great option at such a low price. Speaking from experience, this delivers a lovely deep dose of colour and stays put all day.
