Here at More Than Adored will love a bargain and there are just some beauty products available in the pharmacy that are just too good to pass up. Here are our five top picks of the moment.

1. Australis Pout Pastes 
These are some of my favourite lip products to wear in the winter time. Not only do they not dry out your lips but they still last all day. They smell great, are easy to apply and have a lovely glossy finish. If you haven’t been a fan of the matte lip creams or you’re wanting something similar that’ll last all day these are a great available option!

2. Covergirl Flamed Out Eyeshadow Pencils $9.95
I have developed fairly oily eyelids over the past two years and with that most of my old favourite cream eyeshadows just don’t last on my lids throughout the day with the exception of these! The colour range is pretty decent with everything from khaki to a simple bronze and they’re easy to apply then blend with your finger – win!

3. Rimmel Scandaleyes Gel Eyeliner $13.95
My love for gel eyeliner has been rekindled by this awesome offering from Rimmel. It’s intensely black, stays all day (even with my oily eyelids) and is easy to apply. My only gripe is it does dry out alot faster compared to other more expensive options but if you’re just testing the gel-eyeliner waters then you can’t go wrong.

4. Glameyes by Manicare Miranda Lashes $11
I did some work with Manicare last year so I got to know the lashes fairly well and I’m so impressed. The Miranda lashes are a gorgeous option if you just want added volume, a bit of length and the shape is really flattering and natural. I cannot recommend them enough. They also come in two packs now so it’s easy to stock up on your faves!

5. Essence Silky Touch Blushes $4.95
Not everyone likes blush and I was definitely one of those people about two years ago until I found these gems. If you don’t like alot of blush and want to have the ability to comfortably build up the colour on your cheeks these are for you. The formulation is easy to build upon, smooth and long-lasting on the skin. For under $5 why not!

    Oh great list, especially for those on a budget. The Rimmel gel eyeliner looks interesting, my Bobbi Brown one has dried up so I’ll look into this for a cheaper alternative. At first I misread the currency and thought it was in pounds, I was thinking “that’s a bit steep for Rimmel” haha.

    I’ve been loving Rimmel’s mascara (I can’t remember the name but it’s in a geometric yellow and black tube) – it’s fantastic! I really want to try out those covergirl shadow sticks, they look super easy to apply!

    I’ve always wanted to try the Rimmel London gel liner but have always been skeptical… it’s not being added to my wishlist haha xx

    Agreed about the essence blushes! So affordable and so good :D I haven’t found a new gel liner love since they discontinued the essence one, but thanks for suggesting the Rimmel one!
