We've already chatted about our favourite luxury beauty launches of 2015, but the year has also seen some fantastic budget buys.

When possible, it's great to get more bang for your buck and we're slightly obsessed with some of the below.

The only problem is when the prices are this reasonable, it's a case of "I CAN HAVE EVERYTHING".

Merry Berry Essence Collection

If you're not already acquainted with Essence, it's time you were introduced.

The nail polishes are seriously long-lasting, the eyeshadow palettes (€5) always have an impressive range of shades and their lip glosses (€2.49 Sheer & Shine - €3.09 Liquid Lipsticks) could do battle with some of their more expensive counterparts.

It's our first stop shop for trend led make-up and the Merry Berry collection is the perfect example of this.


Sleek i-Lust Gold Standard, €8.49

An impressive array of shades for less than €9? This is something we can get on board with.

The Sleek Brow and Contour kits had people raving for months and with the introduction of this eyeshadow palette and two new highlighter palettes, they've become even more popular this year.

Christmas party make-up = sorted.

WET N WILD Max Volume Plus Mascara, €5.49

We're always on the lookout for a mascara that can transform your lashes without breaking the bank.

This particular mascara is all about the volume, but it's also food for your lashes thanks to the blend of Macadamia Nut, Jojoba and Olive Oils.

The oils condition while the addition of Panthenol helps prevent lash breakage.

Voluminous, conditioned lashes for under €6? Yes, please.

Isadora Face Sculptor, €25.50

This is a bit more expensive than the other items featured and for that reason, we almost left it out.

Then, we got to thinking how it does four things in one, which will save a serious amount of space in your makeup bag.

Available in four shade ranges, the compact contains a bronzer, highlighter and blusher which can also be used as eyeshadows.

Dealz Make-Up Gallery - Highlighter & Double Ended Eye Brush

The majority of items featured in the Make-Up Gallery line retail at €1.49 which is a pretty good reason to get on board with it.

We've featured two of our favourites: the double-ended eye brush which allows you to angle, sculpt and blend plus the highlighter, ideal for faking a glow when you have a bit of a Christmas hangover.

NYX Cosmetics Slim Lip Pencil in Hot Red €4.99

We've rated NYX butter glosses for a while now and lately, we're fans of their slim lip pencils.

They're only €5 each and there's a wide range of shades to choose from.

If you want to make sure your lipstick lasts the night, a lip-liner is a must and at that price, we can't leave them behind.
