TOP 5 UNDER £5

Hello,

Today’s post is going to be my top 5 makeup products that are available for under £5.

  1. COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER

This product retails at £4.19 in Boots, Collection as a brand is known for being affordable and I think so many of their products are amazing quality but this concealer is my favourite. This product is so popular amongst beauty bloggers and I totally understand why. The formula is a thick, liquid consistency but it is definitely not a cream concealer. It blends so easily and stays put all day. I use it to cover dark circles and blemishes as the colour matches my skin really well. It is available in 4 shades so if you’re of a darker skin colour, you may not be able to find a shade that works for you which I’d say is the only downfall of this product.

2. RIMMEL STAY MATTE PRESSED POWDER

Another product I mentioned in my everyday makeup routine post and that’s because I genuinely love and use it. This product is priced at £3.99 in boots, one of the cheapest products Rimmel have. This is just a plain and simple pressed powder, I use the shade transparent but they also do a range of coloured shades. I find it ideal for setting makeup in place and stopping/reducing shine all day.

3. KIKO SMART LIP PENCIL

Although KIKO can be slightly more difficult to get my hands on than the products above, everything i’ve tried from the brand has been great. The smart lip pencil is a soft, creamy formula that lines the lips really well to stop lipstick bleeding and to define the lips but I also find the consistency is perfect for filling in my whole lips. The colour stays put for hours and they have a large range of colours. My favourite shade is 712 and they retail at £2.50 0n the KIKO website.

4.REVOLOUTION FOCUS AND FIX EYEBROW KIT

I feel like this product is probably the best value out of the 5. This product is available in superdrug for £2.50. The kit includes 3 eyebrow powders, an eyebrow wax, a mini angled brush and a mini pair of tweezers. I personally never used the tools but the powders are fantastic quality. You get 3 different coloured powders so you can create strong and natural brows with one kit, the powders have very little fallout and a strong colour pay off, they don’t fade or go patchy either. I don’t personally get much use out of the wax but if you have thicker eyebrows or a lot of unruly hairs in your brows then the wax would be a great first step before the powder to maximise the neatness of the brows. This kit comes in two shades(light-medium and medium-dark).

5. COLLECTION EYES UNCOVERED EYESHADOW PALETTE

This small,compact eyeshadow palette contains 6 eyeshadows, a mixture of matte and shimmer shades which you could honestly create so many different looks with. The palettes usually retail at £3.99 in Boots but go on sale for £2.99 or on 3 for 2 deals regularly making them even better value. The shadows are so soft and blendable, very little fallout and a great colour pay off. These palettes come in a range of colours including ‘Nude’,’Nude Bronze’, Nude Grey’,’Smokey Purple’,’Nude Rose’ and ‘Smokey Grey’.
