Top Ten Products for under €10

Hello Lovelies!

I have seen quite a few Bargain Buy posts floating around lately and have absolutely been loving them, and once I seen the Top Ten Under a Tenner post started up I knew I had to give it a go. Almost instantly regretted it then. In Ireland make-up is slightly more expensive than the UK so finding things under a tenner was a little bit more of a challenge than I had originally anticipated. So I sat myself down in front of my make up collection with google open beside me googling the prices of some of my favourites and this is what I whittled it down to! I did try and include the prices for all the products but these prices might vary a little bit depending on where you buy them from!

L'oreal Skin Perfection Micellier Solution €4.46
I have raved about this so much over the past year I'm sure you are all sick to death hearing me go on about it! Basically it is a drugstore dupe of Bioderma. Much easier to get hold of and a whole lot cheaper too! It removes all your make-up quickly and easily, and it is literally like water!

Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan €7.99
I was never going to write one of these posts and not include my all time favourite tan good old Cocoa Brown! You really can not go wrong with this tan, you can leave it on for an hour or so for a lovely natural glow or you can leave it on for a bit longer (sometimes I leave it on overnight) for a nice deep colour! It is such a massive bargain and the only tan I use! 

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturiser €6.15
One of the more hyped products of last year was this little beauty. I am the laziest person when it comes to moisturizing as I have said many times before so I really do get my use out of this! As it says on the tin you literally spray and go. It sprays a nice even amount of moisturizer on your body in  fine mist too so it is really easy to just rub in really quickly! 
L'oreal TXT Spray €4.99
I discovered this late last year and haven't looked back. If you are obsessed with having big hair or hair with a little bit more texture then pick this up! A few sprays in your roots and boom your hair is literally twice the size! What I like about it also is that it holds the volume too so you don't necessarily need hairspray too, just a couple of sprays of this and your good to go.
Lush Lip Scrubs €6.75
These have become an essential for me in my make up bag since I've started wearing brighter colors on my lips. These are little sugar scrubs that you pop on your lips and rub in and they just take away any flaky or dead skin that may be there. They come in lots of different flavors too!

Rimmel Apocalips €7.95
Really I could have written this whole post about Rimmel, they have such amazing bargains and keep coming out with brilliant new releases! One of last years releases which took the beauty world by storm was the Apocalips. They are basically a cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss. They are so pigmented, longlasting and they feel nice on the lips too! 
Bumble & Bumble Thickening Hairspray 50ml €8.00
This was one I was unsure about including but I decided to include it because you can get the mini travel size bottles which is what I have been using the past couple of months. I spray this all over my hair from root to tip after washing it, then after blow drying it just gives my hair that little bit extra oomph! (I hate flat hair..can't you tell?)

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder €5.99
Another Rimmel that is such an amazing bargain is their Stay Matte Powder! It sets my make up for the day and also controls any shininess that may occur! My only fault with it is the packaging, not the safest for bringing out in your handbag so do take care with it! 

Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoos €10.49
As I was writing this I realized these are not under €10 which annoyed me no end...I'm really sorry but I promise they are worth that extra .49c! If you are looking for an eyeshadow that is guaranteed to last all day look no further. These little pots of happiness have saved me so much time over the past couple of months its unreal! They take no time at all to apply, make it look like you've put in some effort when you haven't, and they last all day! 

Barry M Nail Paints €5.99
Now you all know about my problem with Barry M polishes...I just can't seem to stop myself from buying them! Plus they keep releasing new colours and formulas so really it is just not my fault! There is such an amazing range of colours to choose from and you can also choose from glitters to matte finishes. There really is something for everyone! 

So those are my top ten picks for under ten euro! That was really alot harder than I had originally thought but it just goes to show there definitely are some amazing bargains out there if you take the time to look! 

What is your all time favourite bargain product and why? I love hearing about other peoples bargain finds!


  1. I love all of these products! The Rimmel stay matte powder has always been my favourite and I love the formula of Maybelline colour tattoos. xx

Im quite glad to see this kind of information which I was searching for a long time.
