Our Beauty Writer's Best Buys Under $35
Just because a makeup or skincare product is expensive doesn’t always mean it’s better than its cheaper counterparts. In fact, there are plenty of budget-friendly beauty buys available. When I set out to scour my existing routine for products under $35, I was pleasantly surprised at just how many fitted the bill. Here are beauty products that I religiously use…

IT Cosmetics

Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, $32.50

A good concealer is a makeup bag must-have. IT Cosmetics formula is infused with peptides and hyaluronic acid, so it’s incredibly hydrating and plumping. Just a small amount is enough to conceal dark circles and I love that it and lasts all day and never creases.



No.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask, $30.00

When it comes to hair masks, it’s safe to say I’ve tried a fair few but Olaplex’s debut treatment has become a firm favourite. I use it once a week and my hair is noticeably shinier and less frizzy.


Paula's Choice

Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, $14.50

I owe a lot to this trusty liquid exfoliant. Using it twice a week as part of my evening routine has really helped keep my breakouts at bay. Not only do I get far fewer spots, but the overall texture of my skin is much smoother and brighter too.


Charlotte Tilbury

Hyaluronic Happikiss, $34.00

Before Charlotte Tilbury created her Hyaluronic Happikiss, I’d always used a lip balm alongside any lipstick as none were hydrating enough. This hybrid formula blurs the lines between skincare and makeup, offering the look of a lipstick with the feel of a balm.


Drunk Elephant

Sugared Koffie Almond Milk Scrub, $28.00

Looking for a body scrub that buffs away dead skin cells in seconds but has a super moisturising formula? You’ve just found it. The blend of almond milk and plant oils ensures there’s no dryness whatsoever and the sweet coffee bean scent is a nice touch.
