Here are the top 10 bargain beauty products featured on the Pointy app.
1. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
I refer to it as the holy grail of make up removers. With products like this on market, we really have no excuse for not taking off our make up and cleansing our skin. It’s suitable for all skin types and is especially good for removing eye make up.
2. Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation
I’ve been using this foundation for about a year now and I think it’s brilliant! Although I’ve tried and tested numerous higher end foundations, this is one I always end up going back to. Even with full coverage it still feels really light on my skin. It also comes in a wide range of colours so you should easily find a good match for your skin tone.
3. Essence Sun Club Bronzer
My beautician recommended this bronzer to me and I love it! It comes in two different shades (blondes and brunettes) and gives your skin a really nice glow. It blends in really easily and most importantly will not leave you looking like a tangerine!
4. Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer
This high coverage concealer is a must have for anyone with dark under eye circles. It’s brilliant for brightening under the eyes and won’t crease or settle into fine lines. It’s also waterproof which makes it the perfect concealer for our lovely Irish climate!
5. Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick
I wear this range of lipstick nearly every day and find that it keeps my lips really moisturised. They’re long lasting and come in a huge range of gorgeous colours. I recommend trying ‘vintage pink’ for day time wear and ‘sloane’s plum’ for night time.
6. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Polish
For anyone who has ruined their nails with too much shellac like I have, you need to get your hands on this stuff! It works wonders on brittle or weak nails and can be used on its own or as an undercoat.
7. Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush
I recommend this to anyone looking for a very natural and healthy blush look. The little round pot has a lovely smooth texture and you only need to use a small bit each time so it lasts for ages.
8. SoSu by Suzanne Jackson Contour Palette
This is a brilliant palette for anyone who is new to the contouring scene. The colours are really nice and will work with all skin tones. It also includes a handy guide inside with steps on how to contour which I found really helpful. At €30 it’s a tad more expensive but completely worth the money in my opinion.
9. Catrice All Matt Plus Shine Control Powder
This powder is great for eliminating shine and ensuring that your make up stays in place all day without looking cakey. I also find applying a small amount under my eyes is great for preventing my eye makeup from falling or smudging.
10. Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner
This is a great eyeliner choice for anyone who has slightly unsteady hands like me. The little brush that comes with it makes it very easy to use and gives really even lines. The colour is very defined and guaranteed to last all day.
