Best Makeup for under a Tenner at Boots

 This has been quite the project.

I searched tirelessly online for hours late into the night for the highest rated makeup products under €10. By which I mean, I went onto Boots’ website and made note of makeup that was rated 5 stars and cost less than a tenner. But still, the effort is there!

Here we go.




Sleek Makeup Luminous Pressed Powder €8.99

This powder is only available in 4 shades sadly, but an affordable luminous powder is hard to come by so hopefully Sleek adds more shades.
