We all love to save money where we can, but when it comes to makeup we also want products we can rely on. As a result, I have created this post to share with you all a few of my favourite beauty products, each of which are less than £5.
As you will see from the photo above three of five of these products are eyeshadows, so I’m going to space them out a little so it’s not too overwhelming which means that the first product I am going to talk about is going to be one of these eyeshadows…
Makeup Geek Eyeshadows, £4.95:
Makeup Geek eyeshadows are very much loved amongst bloggers for their incredible pigmentation, blendability (is that a word?) and diverse shade range. I may only have more natural shades, but there are so many more, there are brighter shades, darker shades, satin shades and matte shades. There are so many shades that I cannot decide which ones I want to buy next and for the very affordable price, buying a few at a time doesn’t do much damage.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, £4.19:
Probably the most well known product of them all and you’re all likely sick and tired of everyone raving about it. If you haven’t yet tried this product I cannot recommend it enough. This concealer is high coverage and lasts really well throughout the day. It is perfect for under the eyes as well as elsewhere on the face. The only real fault I have with this product is the poor shade range, although fortunately for me there is a shade that matches me really well.
Makeup Revolution Eyeshadows Palette, £4:
These eyeshadow palettes are amazing and at such a low price. All palettes by this brand, in my experience, are brilliant, but in particular I am talking about the Redemption Palette Iconic 3, best known for being a dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. This palette has a stunning range of shades from light to dark with a range of finishes including matte, satin and shimmery. For less than £5 you receive twelve great quality eyeshadows which are so pigmented, blend together well and easily and last really well on the eyes.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks, £4.99:
Rimmel lipsticks are by far my favourites, especially from the drugstore. In fact, this lipstick in the shade Alarm is the first lipstick I ever bought. That’s right, the first lipstick I ever bought myself was a bright red. What can I say? I’ve always loved bright and bold lip colours, furthermore, when I first got into lipsticks I never bought nudes because I thought they were pointless. Why wear lipstick if you’re going to wear a nude? I would think… Oh how little I knew about makeup back then!
I love Rimmel lipsticks as they’re cheap, have a lovely range of shades, smell nice and they feel so lovely and comfortable on the lips. Aside from Alarm, I recently purchased a new lipstick from this range in the shade Starry-Eyed.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadow, £4.99:
You can easily tell I love these from the fact that I own six different shades. However, I must say that my favourite of them all is the shade Creme De Rose. These are all cream eyeshadows so they are very quick and easy to apply and blend out, plus you don’t have to worry about using brushes. The range has a good range of shades, although I find that the more natural ones last better on the eyes. Creme De Rose is my favourite because I find it lasts the longest, therefore it’s a brilliant base shade for your powder eyeshadow to help it stay on and it’s a lovely natural shade to wear on its own.
So those are my top five beauty products under the price of £5!
