Budget Beauty Week: Why I Love A Bargain (Plus WIN Loads Of Your Own!)

I love makeup. I love hair products. I love everything to do with making myself look and feel a little bit better. I’ve been obsessed with it all ever since I was a child, taking to the stage to perform a solo ballet piece with blue eyeshadow slapped all over me like a leftover from the 70’s. I worked in the industry for many years, later turning that passion into this blog, so I’ve seen both sides of the beauty industry and pretty much every product imaginable. Although I love a luxurious cream packaged in a delightfully beautiful pot, the buzz I get from finding a fab budget buy is possibly just as strong. Just as Primark and charity shops have become on-trend and adopted by high fashion, affordable beauty is having a resurgence – because spending more doesn’t always mean you’re getting better quality. (Read why not here.) There are now so many products and brands offering amazing quality for a more than reasonable price point, ensuring that beauty is once again accessible to all and affordable enough to be fun again. This week I’m going to be bringing you a series of posts which showcase my favourite budget beauty brands, top product picks and hidden gems that will all be worth picking up – plus every single one will be under a tenner. In celebration of my forthcoming #BudgetBeautyWeek, here are my top five reasons why I love a beauty bargain and even an opportunity to win a huge hamper of goodies for yourself…

1. It’s A Quick Pre-Payday Fix
Got two weeks left before this month’s pay check hits your bank account, but really need a shopping fix? Keep your credit card stashed well and truly away, because picking up a bold lipstick or brand new nail varnish can give you the same buzz as a pair of shoes. Adding a bright colour into your reportoire can make it feel like new, helping to ensure even a white tee looks straight off the pages of Vogue. A slick of pink lipstick, a hit of bronzer or an on-trend layer of nail paint can inject life into a tired wardrobe and doesn’t need to cost more than a fiver.

2. Trends Move On
How many times have magazines told us to buy into the hype of Chanel’s latest £45 eyeshadow palette because it contains this season’s must-have green shade? Budget beauty brands, or even more affordable high street alternatives, often copy those shades but charge a fraction of the cost – great when you know you won’t be wearing it two months later. Save your pennies for a real investment (such as a foundation you know perfectly suits your skintone and type,) and pick up cheaper alternatives when you know you’re just buying into a current trend.

3. Sister Brands Are Doing It For Themselves
So many luxury or premium names have more affordable sister brands, developed and made by the same factories (and more often than not using a practically identical formula.) Bourjois and Chanel, L’Oreal and YSL, Rimmel and OPI – all made by the same overarching companies. In a lot of cases you pay extra for the quality control process and a fancy container, so if you do your research you can really discover an amazing gem that doesn’t have to break the bank.

4. All In The Science
Technology and formulations have moved on so much in recent years that we’re all getting much more for our buck. I can remember products that cost only a few pounds being horrendous quality, but ten years later you can grab an eyeshadow palette for £4.00 that seriously competes with one ten times its price. Ingredients are cheaper, manufacturing processes are slicker, quantities are higher and demands are greater, all leading us into a market that produces seriously good stuff for only a few quid.

5. It’s Accessible To All 
Although us beauty obsessives get wrapped up in the fact that we happily throw away fifty quid on a new face cream, for the masses that’s simply not realistic. Budget beauty and affordable brands ensure good skincare and makeup is accessible to everybody. My mum loves bright colours, changing her nail polish four times a week and glittery eyeliner come the festive season, but there’s no way she’d spend the same amount as me – just like she’d never part with £800 for a Mulberry bag. Our high street stores are filled with affordable products that bring beauty to the masses, and that could never be a bad thing.

Because I love budget beauty products so much, I’m giving away a huge hamper of 20 different budget goodies to one lucky person so you can try out some of my favourties and hopefully discover some of your own. If you want to be in with a chance of winning then just enter via the widget below. Why not let me know your favourite budget beauty buys by leaving me a comment: I’ll be summarising them in a future post (and hopefully picking up some new gems myself as a result!) I hope you enjoy LBQ’s #BudgetBeautyWeek as much as me…

    Supermarket and drug store own brands are my tip. Tesco's Barbara Daly make-up range is a bit of a revelation – everything is really top quality, and so much cheaper than equivalent branded products. My newest bargain brand find is the Nip+Fab glycolic fix range – high potency glycolic acid products a fraction of the price of other high end AHA/BHA products on the market – and my skin has never looked so good, since I started using it. Also, Boots/Tesco have it on offer really frequently – extra bargain!

    I have dry and chapped lips all year around. So, my favorite budget buy is Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm. Really hydrating and smell amazing for any honey lover like me.

    Slightly more budget makeup is great for me. I'm only 16 and I don't have a job as I have school so rely on my parents to give me money and I don't want to be too much of a strain on their wallets! It's nice to get a higher end product every now and again, though xxwww.eleanorbroome.blogspot.co.uk

    I needed a moisturiser the other day, so popped quickly into my local 'Savers' and found this little beaut. I have very sensitive skin and I am allergic to parabens, so I was delighted to find that Balance Active Formula 8-in-1 Face Cream, clearly stated that it was oil and paraben free! I really feel it working when I use it, firming up my skin and although I still use a primer, this can also be used as a great make-up base. So how much does this little miracle cream cost? £1! I have to stock up soon before anyone else catches on! 🙂 xxx

    Excellent post Haley. I tend to spend more on skin care, which is where I think we should invest our money. Great skin means you need less makeup. Rimmel is a favourite with me for lip colour and especially mascara. I swear by their Lash Accelerator mascara.

    No7 Brilliantly Bare Beauty Enhancer as a dupe for Porefessional. I got the benefit sample in a birchbox and fell in love, the no7 one is half the price for twice as much and smooths out my pores as well as porefessional. Not exactly budget but compared to Porefessional it's a great price!

    I love Rimmels Nail polishes as they are long lasting – so are Collection 2000

    I usually buy Avon products when they are on offer. I use their foundation and moisturising creams.

    Vaseline!I use it around my hairline when colouring my hair. I use it on my eyebrows and on nails when fake tanning.I use it as a lip balm.I use it on my feet with some socks on for soft feet.I use it on my eyelashes to make stubborn mascara just slide off.Best stuff ever! 😀

    Rimmel Blusher, struggle to find a colour that suits me that's not pearly or creamy – this has a nice matt finish x

    I like to buy NYC or Miss Sporty mascaras. Mascaras are so expensive and I don't like the wand on most of them for my lashes

    MUA is a great brand. I especially love their velvet lip lacquers which can rival those costing three or four times the price.

    For me carmex lip balm can't be beaten for moisturised healthy lips, especially the tinted ones.

    Oh I have a few bargain buys that I just love and couldn't live without!! Firstly would be Rimmel Perfect Match Foundation….it's silky and smooth, and I like to wear this as my day to day foundation….I find that if I apply a small amount of sudocream to my face after moisturising as a primer the foundation lasts all day! And secondly would be a black gel eyeliner from NYX I think….it's amazing and does a great job!!

    I love Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer. The tube lasts so long and it stays on all day without me needing to retouch it.
