Top 10 under £10

Hey! Guess who's first post-iversary it is tomorrow?! How exciting!
I can't believe I've already been blogging for one month! 

Since the majority of my makeup collection is from the drugstore, it totally made sense for me to do this post. I know that this sort of thing would have been so helpful for myself when I was first starting out with makeup at 13/14 years old. It was actually pretty difficult to only pick 10 items!

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hour Foundation (£7.99) - read my thoughts on this foundation here.
Maybelline FIT Me Concealer (£5.99) - very creamy, great coverage and doesn't crease under the eyes.
Sleek Contour Kit (£6.49) - love this, it makes countouring so so easy!
ELF Mist & Set (£3.95) - reduces the appearance of cakiness/dryness and increases the longevity of makeup.
• Rimmel Natural Bronzer (£5.99) - the shade I use (022) compliments my NC42 skin tone very well, and has great lasting power.

(The picture makes my foundation and concealer seem like totally different colours but it isn't like that in person)

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm (£7.99) - very pigmented, not drying at all even though it's matte, and lasts long.
Rimmel Kate Lipsticks (£5.49) - I have only tried one from the Matte range and absolutely loved it, it's extremely pigmented and long lasting, I have bought some from the normal & matte range for friends and they've also loved them.

Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara (£7.99) - extremely volumising and has never flaked or smudged on me.
• Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Eyeshadow (£4.99) - extremely long lasting, and works amazingly on its own or as an eyeshadow base!
MUA Single Eyeshadows - matte & pearl (£1) - these eyeshadows are amazing, extremely pigmented, blend easily and very long lasting!

Please do let me know if you'd like to see an in-depth review of any of the products mentioned!
Thanks for reading, Thahira x
