Best Beauty Budget Buys :-)

With cosmetics getting increasingly more costly by the day, it is constantly difficult to get high-quality makeup products at budget-friendly costs. However, these cosmetics can be found ladies…here are my BEST BEAUTY BUDGET BUYS that I think most ladies are also obsessed with.

1.NYX Lip Pencil

I cannot get enough of this Lip Pencil because the colour last throughout the day. Its semi-matte texture is to die for! And you can use it to line your lips or fill your lip entirely thanks to their jumbo size.

2. Liquid Liner

Uhm…what more can I say. I always found it difficult to apply the liquid liner, but I got use to it after a while. Again, I am a huge MAC fan and I love their retractable eyeliner but then I found the liquid liner to die for. It has a rich colour, especially the black shade. The liner becomes matte really quickly so you can be sure that it won't crack once it's dry…because BLACK DON'T CRACK! And my most favourite thing is that the point brush is super-flexible, so creating the perfect cat's eye has become a breeze for me.

3. MAC Matte Lipstick

Good quality matte lipsticks are never cheap!!! If you want one that will give you an intense colour and all-day moisture, then you are going to have to fork out quite a bit of cash. MAC lipsticks aren't the most affordable buys in the world but they are the best option you will find for quality lipstick and for under R200.

I know R200 might be a little steep but I swear the pigments are amazing; the price is kind of affordable and it is always nice to have an amazing brand in your purse.

4. Sorbet Nail Polish 

I have a lot of favourite nail polish brands, but I think Sorbet takes the cake for me. They have gorgeous shades I can't get enough off and maybe it's because I change my nail colour every 2 weeks, but my nail polish never chips.

5. Essence Mascara

Finally, the holy grail of cosmetics…Mascara! Essence has a wide range of cosmetics and mascaras but I think the I LOVE EXTREME VOLUME, I LOVE EXTREME CRAZY VOLUME mascara is my favourite.​ 

It is ultra – black in colour, it doesn't smudge (which is awesome since I am clumsy) and it gives a gorge volume after the first coat.

So even if it is the middle of the month and payday isn't quite here yet and I need a beauty pick me up and I don't want to wait for the 25th to feel cute and sexy (mostly cute cause, let's face it…I can't pull-of sexy) these are the cosmetics that cater to my makeup junkieness without breaking the bank…
