Fancy emptying Boots of half of its stock? Well, you’re in luck, as this week we decided to have a budget beauty week and track down some of our favourite beauty products under €12 to share with you. You would actually be surprised with the quality of these items as it’s fair to say they certainly rival the higher end versions.


#1: You either love false lashes or hate them. So many people find applying lashes too much hassle or too difficult. Try Ardell’s ‘Demi Wispies’ and your opinion will probably change. The ease of application is like no other and they feel so comfortable on. The ‘wispy’ effect of the lashes give a more natural elegant look but opening up your eyes at the same time. At €7.39,  you can’t go wrong!

#2:  The ‘Just Bitten Kissable Lips’ balm stain by Revlon is one of those products you can keep in you bag and wear it from day to night. The balmy consistency gives quite a sheer glossy effect but the tint of colour helps lift your entire makeup look. The range of colours available goes from a deep plum purple to a nude pink. We’re impressed.

#3: Concealer is something that could be considered a makeup staple. Applying under your eyes to cover dark circles or hiding blemishes, it can be used even without foundation for a ‘barely there’ kind of look. Collection 2000 is a brand worth looking into, especially its Lasting Perfection concealer. It’s very affordable at €6.49 but its quality is comparable to a much higher end product.

#4: Rimmel’s ‘Exaggerate Liquid Eye Liner’ is great to use if you wanted to create a subtle flick over your upper lashline or dramatic cat eyes. The shape of the brush gives you great control and allows you to draw a smooth line of any thickness.

#5: One of our favourite affordable bronzing powders has to be the one by Bourjois. If you’re a chocolate lover, you’ll adore the cute chocolate inspired packaging and scent. It gives off a gorgeous tanned glow to skin and it also works great as a contour if you want to go for more of a Kim K sculpted look.

Hope you like our top beauty steals. Do you have any Holy Grail items you swear by?
