Budget Beauty Picks

Everyone loves a bargain these days. Even if your budget is endless, there's nothing better than scoring a great product for next to nothing. But what do you buy when there's so much to choose from? With that in mind I thought I would share with you some of my favourite budget beauty bits. 

I know hand cream isn't something that's talked about often on blogs but this one by Garnier is an absolute must have for me. It's super thick and hydrating but absorbs in a flash. If your hands need a bit of love, look no further. 

Sticking along the staples route, I've included the Maybelline Brow Drama (£4.99). For me this is a no brainer but I know some people aren't a fan of the bigger than usual wand. For under a fiver it keeps brows in place and most people will be able to find a suitable shade - winner. I strayed and tried the Rimmel (£3.99) one and believe me for a budget brow gel the Maybelline is your best bet. 

This next one isn't shade specific but more aimed at the brand in general. I am of course talking about Essie polishes (£7.99). Yes they're pricier than other brands you'd find at Boots and the likes but they're the best I've found. From the application and formula to the shade range you really can't go wrong. Their Gel Setter (£9.99) topcoat has even bumped cult favourite Seche Vite (£9) out of my stash. 

The next three aren't new products as such but they're new to me and they're the best money I've spent in a while. The Nivea Double Effect  eye make-up remover (£3.89) I dabbled with a few years back. They've recently ramped up the advertising so I thought I would give it another whirl. Safe to say I am back on board with this and it's just really great at removing everything. No matter how waterproof or how much you've applied, this stuff will get it off pronto. 

So NYX finally came to the UK and my wallet wept as I jumped for joy. I'm not a gloss girl at all, it's just never been my thing. Whilst perusing the stand I remembered that Claire Marshall (Hey Claire on YouTube used to love their Butter Gloss (£5) in the shade Eclair so into my basket it went. It's not left my handbag since. It's more of a balmy gloss and this nudey pink shade means it's an everyday essential. 

Last but certainly not least is the newest of the bunch, Kiko's Cream Crush (£6.90) in the shade Pearly Vintage Rose. This is the perfect shimmery, champagne lid shade for everyday. It's a dream to apply and I've yet to notice it creasing on me which is great. 

And those are my picks. As we all like to pinch the pennies, feel free to leave your recommendations down below!
