I thought I would share a little round up of my favourite affordable picks, these are my top budget beauty essentials, all at under £10 each!
First up are Essie polishes, my favourite highstreet/drugstore nail varnish. Essie are practically the only nail polish brand that I buy now as for me the quality, formula and pigmentation are all second to none. The brush applicator makes application effortless - just three swipes up the nail, two coats and you're good to go! Also, the shade selection is dreamy, Essie Ballet Slippers is the perfect glossy sheer pale pink - ideal for the wedding season and Essie Aperitif is the perfect classic red and suits all shade.
Next up is one of my favourite Lush picks, The Comforter Bubble Bar. This heavenly bath time treat creates a dreamy pink bath with clouds of soft bubbles to relax and melt into. When smashed into chunks this lasts a fair few baths, a little really goes a long way. Also, the scent is gorgeous - a warming, comforting aroma of blackcurrant and vanilla that fills the whole bathroom!
I have a lot of love for the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, everything from the pigmented colour range to the silky mousse like texture that sets in place for hours, these affordable lip picks really are divine! Cannes is gorgeous, a warm rose that's flattering on the lips and a great everyday shade.
My last pick is the Botanics 100% Organic Rosewater Toning Spritz, this is a constant repurchase for me, I must be on at least my 10th bottle of the stuff! Every morning after cleansing I simply mist this over my face and neck before wiping away with a cotton pad. It's so light and refreshing to use and soothing, toning, balancing and calming on the skin. With just 5 ingredients it's just so simple and lovely!
