We’ve all been there. You spot the best concealer, foundation, eyeshadow or lipstick with great reviews and need to get your hands on it. Ah, not so sure if I want to spend £25 on it though. I like it, but not that much. Nah, you’re alright.
But the perfect solution is in Boots: NYX. A makeup brand from the US that has fantastic quality makeup without the scary price tag. They do pretty much everything – foundation, concealer, contour kits, eye shadows, lipsticks, primers, and not forgetting the essential brushes. Here’s a quick list of the products under £10 you need to get your hands on to join the hype:
1. Soft Matte Lip Creams (£6)
These bad boys prove that good things come in small packages. 8ml of long-lasting wear in a wide range of colours (over 30, no biggie) so there’s the perfect colour for everyone.
2. Prismatic Eyeshadows (£5.50)
Cadbury said they had pots of joy, clearly they haven’t got their hands on these yet. These beautifully pigmented eye shadows are sold individually and come in a wide range of colours and shimmer shades. If you’re into bold colour or if you’re into a more natural look, then there’s no wrong answer with these. Individual eye shadows mean you can mix and match your favourites without the hassle of buying a palette with colours you wouldn’t (also try Singles Eyeshadow with more mattes, only £3.50 each!).
3. HD Photogenic Concealer Wand (£6)
Looking like a zombie is pretty common for students now, thanks to assignments, projects and exams. But we don’t have to carry around our eyebags and dark circles forever. Under ten pounds, this pocket-sized concealer has great coverage for those tired days. If dark eyebags are a big problem for you, try the Dark Circle Concealer (£7) or the Full Coverage Concealer jar colour corrector in orange (£6) – the orange tint eliminates the purple, meaning you can pile less liquid over the top!
4. Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick (£7)
Matte, long-lasting and pigmented. And only £7! The colour variety isn’t as varied as the lip creams, but they still range from greys, mauves, pinks and terracottas. Your favourite will be amongst all 24 shades!
So get in to your nearest Boots or on the newly launched NYX UK website to check out great quality products at affordable prices.
