The top 10 summer beauty buys from under €10

Our round up of bargain beauty buys this summer, from plumping face serums to velvety lipsticks.

Trying to restock your make-up bag on a budget? We’ve got you covered.

Despite their low prices, these beauty finds are nothing near a compromise, offering high-quality results comparable to that of top luxury brands.

With ingredients like hyaluronic acid, bakuchiol, shea butter, glycolic acid, lavender oil and provitamin B5, these bargain buys actually nourish your skin while you are wearing them.

From hydrating foundations to tinting eyebrow mascaras, here are ten marvellous beauty buys that will last all summer long – all from under €10.

Hydrating foundation

Literally like a second skin, Catrice Cosmetics’ new True Skin Hydrating Foundation allows for buildable coverage with a natural matte finish. Its vegan formula includes hyaluronic acid and watermelon seed oil for added hydration.

If you’re looking for a lightweight product to conceal redness on the go, Clean ID Hydro BB Cream is the perfect solution. Made with 99 per cent natural ingredients like shea butter, it’s ideal for those with dry skin, leaving the skin with a tinted, soft and natural glow.

Glowing serums

A more gentle alternative to retinol serums, Catrice Cosmetics’ Youth Boost Serum contains hyaluronic acid and bakuchiol – a natural, plant-based moisturiser that stimulates collagen to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Apply the Glow Overnight AHA Treatment before bed, and it works two-fold. Glycolic acid softly removes flaky skin overnight and stimulates the nocturnal skin regeneration process while chamomile and aloe vera nourish and sooth skin for a fresh morning start.

Voluminous eyebrows

If you want those gorgeous, Cara Delevingne brows, the Volume and Lift Brow Mascara by Catrice Cosmetics can help you get the look at a bargain price. Rather than a gel, its waxy texture holds brushed brows in place while keeping a natural feel. It comes in four shades, a transparent one and three shades of brown.

For something bolder, try the Power Stay Brow Gel. It’s waterproof, long-lasting and its special applicator makes it super easy to apply, evenly distributing colour across your brows for a striking and natural look.

Lifting mascaras

Not only does the LIFT UP Volume Mascara by Catrice Cosmetics add volume and length, but it contains lifting polymers that impressively curl your lashes. Plus, it’s rice protein and provitamin B5 ingredients help nourish and strengthen lashes with each use.

A cult favourite, the Glam & Doll Boost Lash Growth Volume Mascara adds volume and promotes healthy lash growth. It claims to double the volume of the natural lashes in just six weeks.

Plumping lipsticks

The Lip Pyjama Night Mask works to hydrate and plump lips overnight with nourishing ingredients like shea butter, hyaluronic acid, lavender oil and cranberry extract. Its lavender scent will have you drift off into a cosy beauty sleep.

Catrice Cosmetics’ Full Satin Nude Lipstick comes in from nude pink to a bolder plum. They owe their divine, velvety finish to infusions of rose oil and vitamin C.
