Drugstore Week ¦ Top products under £10

On Monday I talked about my favourite products under £5 so today I thought I would talk to you about my favourite products under £10. I have to say that I found the under £5 difficult however I found this one even harder. There are so many incredible products in this price range however I have narrowed it down to my absolute favourites.
NYX Butter glosses - £5.00
I was convinced these glosses were £5.99 so they ended up in this post however they probably should have gone in the Under £5 post. These are one of my favourite glosses as they are so comfortable to wear and hydrating without being super sticky and gross. They actually have quite a lot of pigment and I use them a lot over the top of nude lipsticks to change the shade slightly. I also love the packaging is the same colour as the shade as it makes them super easy to find in my collection.
Gerard Cosmetics Hydra matte liquid lipsticks - £9.50
Alongside the Dose of colours ones these are my favourite liquid lipsticks, they are an incredibly comfortable matte formula which sits beautifully on my lips even though they are so dry. These wear for such a long time without sucking all the moisture out of your lips like a lot of liquid lips do. The shade selection is also quite varied which is something I feel like isn't done to well when it comes to liquid lipsticks.
NYX Tiramisu, NYX Crème brule, Gerard cosmetics Iced Mocha, Gerard cosmetics Serenity, Gerard cosmetics Ecstasy

Bourjois Healthy mix foundation - £9.99
Along with the serum version this is my favourite budget foundation. It sits beautifully on my dry skin and gives the most stunning very healthy looking glow. It offers a medium coverage however it can be built up to a much higher coverage with a beauty blender (It doesn't build as well with a brush) The finish of this is a dewy finish so it might not be great for an oilier skin type however for drier skinned people this one is a really great budget alternative.
Bourjois Radiance reveal concealer - £7.99
Can we first just take a minute to appreciate how high end the packaging for this concealer looks. Along with the lovely looking packaging is a lovely product, I've been using this under my eyes pretty much everyday since I bought it and I really love it. I have a lot of trouble with concealers looking super dry and gross under my eyes but this one is so hydrating that it leaves my under eyes looking concealed as well as very moisturized. I feel like once again n oily skin this one may slip around a little too much however on dry skin it works really beautifully.
Sleek Solstice highlighting palette - £9.99
This is such a hyped product right now and I 100% understand why it contains 4 gorgeous highlights, one cream and three powders. The powders are super intense and give a seriously glowy look to the skin whilst the cream is a little more subtle, making a perfect base for the powders but also a beautiful natural highlight when used alone. I think this is definitely one that all highlighter fans need to give ago however is definitely not one for people who like a more natural highlight.
Bourjois Healthy mix, Bourjois Radiance reveal, Sleek highlighting palette 3 - 6, Barry M contour kit 7-9
Barry M Contour kit - £6.49
I'm not sure I will ever stop loving this product, it is such a stunning contour powder for pale skin, I must admit I don't ever touch the middle bronzer shade and I don't tend to reach for the highlight to often as it is matte however I would happily pay £6.49 for just the contour powder alone. It is a lovely cool toned powder which is light enough to work on paler skin however it also builds up really nicely on darker skin. I also feel like this would make a nice first contour product as it blends out so well even if you apply a little to much.
Maxfactor False lash effect - £10.99
Okay so I'm cheating with this one a little bit however I had to mention this mascara in one of my drugstore week posts as I am so obsessed with it at the moment. I am a Benefit They're real girl through and through however I'm trying to get through some of my other mascaras before I repurchase it. This one is super lengthening and leaves the lashes looking very fluttery, it isn't particularly volumising however personally that isn't really what I look for in a mascara. It is also very black and holds a curl really well despite not being the waterproof version. It is a little more pricey than your average drugstore mascara however I would recommend it for anyone who want's to try something very like a high end mascara.
