If you had to pick ten desert island products what would they be? The market is littered with products and promises, but are most of them what they make out to be? We have made a list of the 'Ten Beauty Items Every Girl Should Own'. For products to make our list, they have to do as it says on the tin, be affordable and mostly be really highly rated.
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish
Is this Cleanser the key to beautiful skin? With over 120 awards/accolades to it's name, it could well be. This magical creamy wash will remove your makeup in an instant, exfoliate (with that cloth) and inject mucho moisture into your skin. Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish* starts from £9.
MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick
Forget wasting £££'s on finding a red lipstick that'll suit you. This baby will work it for you, every time you reach for it. Your teeth will look whiter and boy will your lips look the business. Get it for £15.50 here*.
L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
Doesn't matter if your hands are crustier than a baguette, this hand cream will get them feeling smoother than a baby's bum. It comes in two different sizes, meaning you can keep one in the house and have one for on-the-go. Prices start from just £8*.
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat
If angels wore makeup I bet this would be their number one choice. This little gold pen gives you a healthy glow and can inject a halo of light to the darkest of under-eyes. My tip is use it on your Cupid's Bow to show off your lips. It'll be the best £21.25 you'll ever spend*.
Urban Decay Naked Palette
You want to look natural but god forbid you go bare-faced. UD Naked Palette will polish your look without it looking too dramatic. With 12 shades to choose from, you can really mix it up. Get it for £38.50*.
Nars Orgasm Blush
It doesn't matter whether you're so pale that you can see every vein under your skin, or have a super dark complexion. Just like it's name suggests, this Blusher will give you a natural flush, that usually can only be achieved by a 'quick bonk'. Snap one up for £23*.
Lancome Hypnose Mascara
This Mascara can vary your look from pretty natural to full on Drag Queen. Every woman needs this in her makeup bag, especially if she is prone to spontaneous nights out. You know the one's that are a continuation of your working day. One of these babies will set you back just £23.50*.
Aldi Caviar Day and Night Cream
It's been plastered across the newspapers as a dupe of La Prairie Skin Caviar. Many women agree and these little pots of undersea goodness are selling out time and time again. That is testimony enough for us that this needs to be in our Bathroom Cabinet. Grab 'em for just £6.99 each*!
Nails Inc Porchester Square Polish
The perfect nude polish. It's a great base for nail art, it's a wearable colour on it's own. Doesn't matter if your nails are long or short, Porchester Square will have them looking awesome. It's only £14 a bottle*.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Can it be? A Bronzer that is neither orange or glittery. Use a little or use a lot - with this you'll be looking better than any Instagram filter. Even if you are Albino, you could pull off Hoola - I am telling you, it's a girls best friend. Psst... back to those after work drinks. You can use Hoola* as an impromptu eyeshadow. You may think it's pricey at £23.50, but it's worth every penny.
