Favorite Budget Beauty Buys

Hello people of the internet! I'm such a big fan of brands like Urban Decay but, let's be honest they're quite pricey. Nothing makes me happier in this world than a good budget beauty product. I've put together a list of some of my favorite budget picks. Unfortunately, I still haven't found a good brow product or Mascara to add. Let me know what you're favorite budget brow and/or mascaras are in the comments!

Makeup Revolution Ultra Flawless Palette - If you've been following me for a while now, you'll know this is a holy grail product. It's an ultra-versatile 32 shade eyeshadow palette. The shadows range from mattes, shimmers, and full on glitter. Every shade is more pigmented than the last and super blendable. 

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation - The perfect full coverage foundation. It even suits super pale people like myself. It also lasts all day (like the name suggests). This was my go-to foundation last Summer. Even when I felt like I was melting the foundation never budged! 

Wet'n'Wild Mega Glo Illuminating Powder - Okay, so this looks super dark in the picture but I swear it goes on like a dream. I tend to use this when I don't want to do a full on contour but just slightly warm up my face. 

Catrice Defining Blush  - The shade I have pictured here is called Mandy-rine it used to be called apropos apricot. And, I shit you not it is an exact dupe for Nars Orgasm. This blush hands down my all time favorite blush. 

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge - I've honestly yet to find another sponge or brush that applies my foundation so perfectly. I especially love using it when it's dry to blend in my under eye concealer!

Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner - Need an ultra black eyeliner that's easy to apply? This one is for you! I love the felt tip pen. I definitely prefer it to brush or a wand style applicator. Since it's literally pen shaped it makes it so simple to handle.

Wet'n'Wild Mega Matte Lipstick in Red Velvet - This is another product that I have been obsessed with since I started my blog. It's an ultra comfortable matte that will never move or feather. And best of all, it's a true red!

NYX Soft Matte Cream In Copenhagen - Another perfect shade. Who hasn't tried a NYX Soft Matte cream at this point? They're so comfortable to wear and they last all day. I love how rich the color pay-off is too. 

I'm pretty sure everything here is under €12 each. So, extremely budget friendly! I feel like a lot of the time it seems like I only use high-end products now but these are all staples in my makeup bag. I would honestly be lost without them!

  2. THANK YOU. I know nothing about make-up and I really want to learn, but the main reason I haven't is every resource I look into only talks about the expensive products and it's so hard to find beauty blogs/vlogs that actually focus on products within my price range!

  3. I always have the Rimmel on hand, a go to for work and when my skin is acting up.

  4. Some great suggestions here, I have some in my stash I must revisit!
