10 Beauty Must Haves under 10€

For today's post, I'm summing up the best of budget beauty that's currently in my stash! It goes without saying that there's tons and tons of other products that are amazing and cheap of course - but the following are my current favourites! 

KIKO Eyelash Curlers - I really don't think that in order to have a decent eyelash curler, you have to rob a bank. Yes, bloggers tend to go on and on about how great the Shu Uemura ones are, but for someone who doesn't even use eyelash curlers every day, the KIKO ones do the job quite well. (5,90€)

MUA Undressed Eyeshadow Palette - MUA are known for their awesome dupes of the Urban Decay Naked palettes; the Undressed palette being the one imitating the original Naked palette. For 4 pounds (~ 5,50€), the quality is of these shadows is absolutely amazing and a true bargain. 

Catrice Liquid Metal Gel Eye Pencils - I have often raved about these eyeliner pencils before, but they are just that good. Before trying these, I never used eyeliner pencils at all in my routine. Now that I've tried them, I'm never going back - they apply smoothly, are highly pigmented and stay on forever! (3,20€)

Essence Lipliners - Similar to everything else in Essence's product range, their lipliners are ridiculously cheap (~ 1€) and actually do a very decent job! The shade 10 Femme Fatale goes under all my red lipsticks - MAC Russian Red for example - and I recently fell in love with 07 Cute Pink, which I also mentioned in my February favourites

KIKO Brush Cleanser - A good cleanser to spot-clean your makeup brushes can be a live saver when you've been lazy again and didn't bother to properly clean them (lala, that never happens to me ...)! Once again, KIKO offers a great alternative to more expensive products by the likes of MAC for example; for 5,90€, this brush cleanser is an absolute bargain and a staple in my stash. 

Catrice Camouflage Cream - Another product I've mentioned many a time before is this budget heavy-duty concealer that covers the really pesky problems that might occur on your face. For around 3,25€, you cannot go wrong if you're looking for a high coverage concealer! 

Sleek Contour Kit - Sleek is another brand that makes great quality budget products - their contour kits are very popular among bloggers, and with good reason! They come in a variety of shades, are super-pigmented and help to carve out those (in my case, non-existent) cheekbones! (~ 8,80€)

LUSH No Drought Dry Shampoo - I bought a small bottle (50g) of this dry shampoo that comes in powder form last August, and it's still halfway full. I love it for the fresh citrus scent and how well it blends into my hair - I will definitely repurchase this when I run out of it! (7,95€)

Catrice Nude Illusion Makeup - Another product I've mentioned a couple of times before, this is my favourite light to medium coverage foundation. I love the packaging because it comes in a weighty glass bottle and with a pump (which a lot of high end brands charge you extra for!). Combined with the great formula of this foundation, I'll gladly pay 7,95€ for it! 

LUSH Grease Lightning - Last but not least I want to recommend a skincare product! Grease Lightning is a spot treatment for acne, and it really does help a lot to dry out and calm down breakouts. I used to use pure tea tree oil as a spot treatment before, but now that I've tried this product, I rarely stray from it. It's less harsh and does a very similar job, and for 9,95€ it's still a bargain compared to higher end treatments that promise a similar effect.
