11 cheap as f**k makeup beauty buys, as recommended by gals on Reddit

All for under €15.

A FEW WEEKS ago, a Reddit user named MrsLovettsPies took to the MakeupAddiction subreddit to ask for people’s favourite cheap beauty buys.

The replies flew in because if there’s one thing makeup aficionados love more than makeup, it’s bragging about finding cheap makeup that’s actually good.

Here are some of their suggestions all of which cost less than €15.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, €5.99

I can’t quit the Rimmel Stay Matte. I’ve never found another quite like it. And for that price? Shoot.

NYX Professional Makeup Setting Spray, €10

For a tenner, you can’t go wrong.

e.l.f Eyebrow Kit, €5.43

Several Reddit users chimed in to sing the e.l.f Eyebrow Kit’s praises.

The Elf brow kit is glorious.

Simple Micellar Water, €5.99

Best makeup remover I have ever used. I soak two cotton pads and let them sit on my eye makeup for a few seconds then wipe away. No residue, no scent. Great for sensitive eyes/skin.

Now you know.

Nyx Butter Gloss, €8

NYX Butter Glosses are cheap, aren’t too sticky, smell yummy, and are just overall fantastic

Essence Make Me Brow, €3.10

A convincing dupe for Benefit’s Gimme Brow apparently.

I honestly think Essence Make Me Brow is a better product than Benefit Gimme Brow, as long as you can find a match.

Mario Badescu Rosewater Face Spray, €13.20

 it’s refreshing and feels boujee. apparently jennifer aniston uses the brand.

If it’s good enough for Jennifer Aniston…

Milani Baked Bronzer, €12.50

Milani Baked Bronzer (I use it as a blush though!) in 04 Glow: it’s a darker pink peach with gold duochrome that when you apply it on your cheeks you get blush AND highlighter in one. I love it so much.

Sounds positively radiant.

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow, €10.79

Best drugstore shimmer eyeshadow ever #eyeshadow #loreal #infallibleeyeshadow #makeup

 Super pigmented and long lasting.

Sleek Eyeshadow Palatte, €10.99

I bow before thee, smooth as f**k, blendable as butter, intelligently selected to create many looks, good mattes but better than UD shimmers and foils.

EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation, €11.95

I prefer it over my nars, giorgio armani, estee lauder foundations. It’s light, buildable coverage, a perfect colour match, and has a pretty slightly dewy finish.
