Ten beauty products for under £5!

Hi guys,

So today I wanted to share with you my top ten products under £5.

I don’t believe you need to spend a fortune on makeup products to get the quality. It is very nice sometimes to splash out on an extra amazing product but these products are for the times when you are stuck to a bit of a budget! 

PS Waterproof Mascara

PS Lash Contour Mascara

Both of these mascaras are from Primark which are available instore only and are both priced at only £2.00. The Waterproof mascara is great for volume. It has an extremely thick but contoured brush which helps the product to build up your lashes. The lash contour mascara is amazing for lash length. This has a much thinner brush than the waterproof.

I tend to use both of these products together. I brush on the waterproof mascara and then the lash contour mascara to build the length.

MUA Pro Base Conceal & Highlight Kit

This kit is only £4 and has now been improved with the addition of an extra shade too. For the people who don’t highlight as well as I do, this kit is an excellent product. The darker shade is ideal for a bit of contouring also. As you can see, this product has been well used by me and at £4, it definitely is a bargain.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

I love Collection concealer. I have reviewed it previously here. This is priced at £3.99 which is an absolute bargain. I am sure you don’t need me to tell you how amazing this product is. I think everyone who has tried it absolutely loves it. It is definitely one of the best concealers I have ever used!

Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner

Another Collection product that I have reviewed previously here. I use this every single day and run a sweep over my upper lid. This product is only £2.99 which is so cheap. This is the one thing I go back to time and time again and will always repurchase!

Avon Color Trend Eyeliner similar here.

This is probably one of the only kohl eyeliners I have ever used. I have posted a link to a similar item as this one didn’t appear on my search. This is usually priced at around £3.00. I apply this one to the lower eye but mainly for a night out as I think the look is quite dramatic for a daytime. There are probably a lot better products out there, but I like what I like!

Makeup Gallery Feeling Blush Blusher

This product is only £1! £1! I basically visited Poundland and picked up a lot of their makeup gallery range quite a while back and this was one of them. I didn’t expect to like a lot of them but this product is fantastic. The shade is amazing and is almost a rose gold shade which looks amazing on. I use this one quite often and at only £1 – it doesn’t break the bank!

Collection Bronze Glow

This is another product from the collection range and is priced at only £2.99 which is an absolute bargain. I buy it in the matt as I find the shimmery just emphasises oily skin and is more suitable for holidays. This product is not my favourite bronzer but if you are looking for something on a budget, I would recommend this. It does tend to look a little dark on but you then use it lightly which means you get more wear out of it. It does come in different shades, so it is possible I bought this in too dark a shade for my face! Maybe try a lighter shade than what you would usually go for?

Collection Eyes Uncovered Palette

I have this palette in two separate colourways; the smokey and the nude bronze shades.. Both of these palettes are usually priced between £2.99 and £3.99 depending if there is an offer on at the time. They are my go to palettes for taking on holiday as they are compact and the shades are all that I need when away. The shades are super pigmented and the colours are really layerable – meaning I can either do a one shade or build a smokey eye or bronzed eye with several of them. This is definitely a good value product – there aren’t many places you can get 6 eyeshadow shades for less than £4.

So, that is it for my ten products under £5. 

Have you got a product you can recommend?
