Five BARGAIN BUYS

Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Good Looks -

The make-up

sponge If you like ap­ply­ing foun­da­tion with a sponge, B. by Su­per­drug La­tex Free Blend­ing Sponge, is a great buy at £4.99. Our testers liked that it didn’t ab­sorb too much prod­uct. The sponge’s tip is ideal for ap­ply­ing foun­da­tion in tricky places like around the nose. 79/100

For your hands

An all-round per­former in both our lab and con­sumer tests, Roger & Gal­let Bien­faits Hand and Nail Balm, £6, has a fresh scent and a lit­tle goes a long way. Keep one in your hand­bag and ap­ply fre­quently! 92/100

A find for shiny

noses Blot­ting pa­pers are a must when it comes to whip­ping away shine with­out ru­in­ing your make-up or leav­ing you look­ing over-pow­dered. Of the 10 brands we tested, the win­ner was MUA Pro­fes­sional Blot­ting Pa­per, £3. It scored highly for oil re­duc­tion and last­ing ef­fects. 82/100 Great value mas­cara For im­pres­sive vol­ume and length, try May­belline Lash Sen­sa­tional Mas­cara, £8.99. Our panel loved its brush de­sign and re­ported it lasted well with­out smudg­ing. 86/100

Multi-pur­pose balm

In­ten­sively mois­tur­is­ing, Glossier Balm Dot­com, £10 (glossier.com) is out­stand­ing for sooth­ing cracked, chapped lips, but you can also use it on hands, nails and dry el­bows. Avail­able in five colours, if us­ing as a lip salve only. 84/100
