Beauty bargains!

Today's post is about beauty bargains. This is my top 5 of really good make-up products that don't break the bank. Do you want to invest in good quality make-up, but don't want to go to the Chanel counter? Then please keep on reading! (These products are in no particular order)

Catrice Prime and Fine Anti-Red Base
The first product is the Catrice Prime and Fine Anti-Red Base. It's only €4,59, which is way cheaper than most primers at the drugstore. This is a great product for combination/oily skin, because it's an oil-free product. The primer is green, this makes sure that it acts as a color corrector. If you have some breakouts, the green will neutralize the redness to give you an even skintone that's ready for foundation. Use this under your foundation and it will go on smoother, last longer and look better. The one thing I don't like about it, is the fact that it has A LOT of glitter in it. This is a common problem with drugstore make-up. But once you've put your foundation on top, you don't really notice any of the glitter anymore. 
Gosh BB Skin Perfecting Kit
I included this kit, because you get three products in one! It costs €12,49 which is a bit more than the last product, but you do get two concealers and a highlighter. So that kind of makes up for it ;) I really like the consistency of the concealers. They are really pigmented and are a bit thicker. The cream highlighter is beautiful too. It gives a really pretty sheen/glow and it doesn't have that drugstore-glitter in it, which I was talking about earlier. I like that it's a small kit which makes this great for traveling!
Maybelline Terre Indienne Bronzing Powder with Blush 09 Golden Tropics
Maybelline Terre Indienne - 09 Golden Tropics - Bronzer
Not three products in one this time, but two! This time a bronzing powder and a blush. Both the bronzing powder and the blush have some glitter in it. When you first look at it, it looks like a lot of glitter, but once you put in on your skin, the glitter isn't noticeable. It just gives you a healthy, glowing finish. The bronzing powder doesn't look orange on the skin at all and the blush is a pretty peach/pink color. It doesn't have the most amazing pigmentation, but I really like the finish of this product. And €13,29 for a bronzer and a blush isn't too bad, right?!
Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof eye pencil
Black party 41
It can be really difficult to find a good eye pencil that's affordable. Well... I think I found one! This eye pencil is AMAZING! It is super pigmented, really black and stays on for a really long time! It's also really creamy, so it's amazing for creating the perfect smoked out eyeliner. This is hands down the best eyeliner I've ever used. And all of that for only €7,64.
Catrice Ultimate Colour 010 Be Natural

Looking for a nude lipstick? Look no further... ;) This lipstick is really pigmented and stays on your lips for a really long time. The color is a really pretty nude with pink undertones and it's not too light, so it doesn't make you look ill. The packaging is really pretty too and definitely doesn't look cheap, which is a good thing, 'cause it's only €3,99.
So that was my top 5 beauty bargains! Thanks for reading this blogpost and leave your requests, questions or anything like that in the comment section below! ;) Until next time!
