Bargain Beauty Finds

While a lot of my makeup bag is full of products that are mid-range in price, I still love shopping on the high street. These products have been my favourites for a while now, a few are slightly newer but they are all pretty affordable! If you want to try out something new while only spending a few pounds, I have you covered.

Colourpop has been a favourite brand of mine ever since they launched with their Super Shock Shadows a few years ago. When they launched the pressed eyeshadows, I ordered a bunch of shades as well as one of the magnetic palettes and I still use it regularly. All of the eyeshadows I have great pigmentation while being easy to apply and blend. If you have been wanting to build a custom palette then Colourpop is the place to go. If you want to see what's in my palette and swatches of the shades, you can check that out - here

I am so fussy with foundations and If I'm being honest, I haven't had a high street foundation in my makeup bag in about 18 months. That was until I tried the Wet n Wild Photofocus Foundation*. I adore this product and it as good as some of the foundations I have in my collection that are around £30. It has fantastic coverage and it lasts well on my skin and doesn't ever look cakey or heavy once applied. I find it best to apply this one with a damp sponge. Another face product that I can't believe is only £10 is the Smashbox Travel Spotlight Palette in Pearl*. I picked this up just after Christmas and it's such a great wearable palette. Considering how many highlighters I own, I don't actually have too many for everyday wear as they're mostly colourful ones. 

I wear winged liner every time I wear makeup, I don't feel myself if I don't wear it anymore. The Barry M On Point Precision Eyeliner* is fantastic and under £5! I posted a review on this recently (you can check that out here) and it's one of the best liners I have used since Kat Von Disease. I love how long the felt tip applicator is and it's got intense pigmentation while being incredibly long wearing. The last makeup product that is a bargain is the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in Orange Shimmer. This retails for £18 but Fragrance Direct sell this for around £8! It has a delicious scent and I love the sheer wash of colour it gives the lips while being them hydrated. 

Face masks have been one of my beauty obsessions so far in 2019 and the Soap and Glory Sheet Masks* are still some of the best! I love and have used every single one that they have and continually repurchase them. The two hydrating ones have been my most used as they provide instant relief when my skin is uncomfortably dry while adding some much-needed hydration.
