5 beauty products under £5!



Whilst I do like a splurge on certain makeup items, there are some amazing products on the high street. Some of my favourite products are the gems above which are all priced less than £5.

Sleek blushes £4.49 are pigmented, long lasting, with my favourite shade - rose gold, a dupe of nars orgasm blush. Sleek have a variety of shades available so theres something for everyone!I reviewed and swatched rose gold here.

Maybelline Color Tattoo shadows £4.99 are described as a cream/gel shadow that can also be used a liner. I have on and on bronze - I have a lot of love for this shadow as its stays put on my oily lids, doesn't crease and makes a great base for eye makeup. I wrote a comparison post to MAC paints pots here. There are a few new shades for spring (light in purple, timeless black and 24k gold) so look out for them in stores.

Collection lasting perfection concealer £4.19 has huge hype in the blogging world and rightly so. Its a creamy, long lasting concealer that blends easily and doesn't oxidise. It feels much more expensive than it is and could easily rival concealers from high end brands.

Rimmel scandal eyes liner £3.99 is a pigmented, soft, easy to apply liner. They are water and smudge proof and feel gentle when applied. I swatched silver in this post. A huge bargain!

17 mirror shine on lipstick £4.59 are moisturising lipsticks that add glossy colour to the lips. They are non sticky, comfortable to wear and theres a good variety of shades available. Nudist peach is pictured above and swatched in this post along with beehive.

  18. Great post! I love finding great quality makeup on a budget. Sleek blushes are amongst my favourite. They have a good colour selection and I agree they're so pigmented.
    The Colour Tattoo's are pretty and again I like the colour range. I want some of the colours that have been released in the US.
    I am going to see what my 5 fave products that are under £5.
