Affordable Beauty Products That Blew Me Away

Affordable beauty can be so hit and miss. From crap makeup shade ranges to cheap ingredients in skincare that can cause me to break out. Recently I've turned into a bit of a beauty snob and the majority of what I use is on the more expensive side. But that being said I have found some amazing affordable beauty products that work brilliantly and easily rival products that are triple the price. So here they are.

Makeup Revolution Concealer | £4 | REVIEW 

People are going crazy for this concealer at the moment and for good reason. I mean a concealer that costs just £4 that comes in 18 shades! Not only that this has amazing full coverage. And the formula is a dream to work with. It's really creamy and so blend-able. It works well under the eyes and on blemishes. I can't believe this concealer is just £4!!!

Milani Rose Blush | £12 (currently 20% off here)

Although Milani's Rose blushes aren't the cheapest blushes out there, the shade Romantic Rose deserves a mention! It's the most stunning Mauve, dusky Pink colour. It goes with any makeup look and the formula is incredible. It's so blend-able and doesn't look powdery on the face. The pigmentation is perfect, it's not too pigmented that you can go over bored but it's not sheer.

La Girl  PRO HD Foundation | £10 | REVIEW

This is probably my favourite foundation ever. I know that's a bold statement but I've not found anything in this price range I love more. This has a really good medium coverage with a luminous finish. It really gives my skin a lit from within, almost filtered finish. This doesn't slide off my face like most dewy foundations either. They have a pretty good shade range too.

Milani Strobe and Glow Highlighter | £13 (currently 20% off here)

Like the Milani blushes this isn't the cheapest highlighter ever. But with highlighters I think they are worth paying a bit extra for. This formula from Milani is so good. The highlighters are buttery soft and give the face a lovely sheen. These aren't chunky or glittery at all. They aren't too over the top either, they're perfect for everyday where. And I think these look way more expensive then they actually are.

NYX Butter Glosses | £5.50

These Butter glosses are by far the best affordable glosses I've come across. The name pretty much sums these up -Buttery! They're not sticky or gloopy and feel really hydrating on the lips. Most of the shades are on the sheer side, but I prefer this. It means they wear evenly and are so easy to reapply. I have a few shades but my favourite is Creme Brulee which is nude Beige colour. I also love to layer these on top on lipsticks and liquid lipsticks,

Phase Zero Lipstick | £3.50 | REVIEW

I really wasn't expecting much from these and I was really apprehensive of the concept, which is essentially a monthly subscription for factory cost makeup (see this post for more details) but these liquid lipsticks are amazing. My favourite shade is Chai Latte which is a creamy, Brown toned nude. The formula is really pigmented, easy to apply and they dry down completely matte. And more importantly these aren't drying! They don't look dry on nor do they sink into fine lines. For just £3.50 these are brilliant.

Makeup Revolution New trals VS Neutrals Palette | £6.99 | REVIEW

Like highlighters I think eyeshadow palettes are worth investing in. Although this offering from Makeup Revolution was one of my favourites for a long time. Admittedly I don't reach for this all that often any more but the shades and formula of these shadows is incredible, given it's price. The shadows are really pigmented, so easy to work with and last really well on the lids. This is actually a good dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette! See this post for a comparison. But overall this is a fab, affordable palette!

Have you tried any of these? What's your favourite affordable product?

Until next time...
