Cheap & Cheerful Beauty Treats

Cheap Beauty Treats - Average Janes

Let’s be honest, on cold, dark winter mornings, make up is often the thing that helps us feel pulled-together and ready to face the day ahead. Somehow though, this in-between season doesn’t inspire a big splurge – so while we’re waiting for new Spring trends, we thought we’d bring you seven of our favourite cheap beauty treats. Little beauties to give you a cheerful treat without too big a dent on your wallet!

7 Cheap Beauty Treats

Our pick of seven fabulous products. Get yourself a cheap beauty treat for under a tenner – bargain!

Maybelline Colossal Mascara

Boots, £6.99 

Give your lashes a generous coating of this great mascara. Adds layers without thick clumping and the waterproof version is perfect for popping into your make up bag for holidays.

Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish

Boots, £2.99 

We love these bright, cheerful nail polishes – they’re super-cheap so ideal for a pick-me-up when your wallet’s feeling a bit stretched. They really do dry in a minute – perfect for a quick coating of colour on a work evening ready for the next day. Our current favourites are the chic grey/nude When I Grow Up and the vampy red Queen of Tarts.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

Superdrug, £4.19

Great coverage for under a fiver, an ideal cheap beauty treat for keeping in your handbag for touch-ups. Only downside is that it comes in a fairly limited range of four shades.

Rimmel Mono Blush

Superdug, £3.99

These little beauties blend smoothly for a perky pop of bright colour. At under a fiver, pick a colour you love and stash in your make up bag for easy application during the day.

Seventeen Eye Palettes

Boots, £7.99 

Can’t splash out on Naked or Urban Decay palettes? Then give Seventeen a go for a cheap beauty cheat. We like the Birthday Suit palette for a great range of neutrals perfect for everyday wear, or layering into a smokey eye. And all for under a tenner, bargain!

Radox Stress Relief Bath Soak

Tesco, £1.70

An absolute favourite for de-stressing after a tough day, the eucalyptus and rosemary are so soothing. Run a super-hot bath, generously glug in this gorgeous, savoury scent and sink into the relaxing bubbles.

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

Superdrug, £7.99 

Creamy, moisturising lipsticks at a bargain price. These are great for experimenting with different colours or trying a new seasonal shade. We love Candy Apple if you’re dipping into trying a red lip, or Peach Parfait for a soft pink shimmer.

That’s seven of our favourite cheap beauty treats for under 10 quid – bargain!
