Top 5 Under £5 | Make Up Edition


Hey girlie's!!!

When it comes to make up I'm a real bargain hunter, of course I like the fancy high end make up but unfortunately my purse hates high end make up he he. I honestly believe if you shop around and go swatch crazy in the shops you can find absolute gems that are just as good as the higher end make up but less that half the price. So today I thought I would share with you lovely girlie's my top five make up items that are under £5.00!!!

Sleek Make Up Blush in Pixie Pink £4.49
When it comes to Blusher there's only one stand out make up brand for me and that's Sleek. Sleeks Blushes are incredible and the quality really does remind me of a more expensive Blush. I own a few Sleek Blushes and every single one is highly pigmented, you only need to use a light hand as a little really does go along way, they are really easy to work with, they blend out beautifully and the packaging is 'sleek', compact and has a decent size mirror inside for any on the go touch ups. At £4.49 a pop you really cant go wrong!!!

Collection Extreme Felt Tip Liner £2.99
I have tried so many liquid liners in my time because personally I've always struggled to apply it, until I got my hands on Collections Extreme Felt Tip Liner. For me its all about easy application and this eyeliner screams easy application. The applicator is a relatively small felt tip nib, you can draw a very thin line to a thick line with ease and I find that as its a felt tip style eyeliner its really easy to create even flicks which is something that has always been tricky for me. Another thing that I love about this eyeliner is its staying power, my goodness its a good'un, its stays put all day without fading, smudging or transferring. So if your after a new liquid liner or you find liquid liner hard to use, I honestly cant recommend Collections Extreme Felt Tip Liner enough!!!

MUA £1.00 Lipstick in Shade 1
As a brand I highly recommend MUA, most of their make up I've tried I've loved and their lipsticks certainly don't disappoint. Shade 1 is personally one of my favourites out of MUA's shade selection and its the perfect shade for this time of year too. As with most of the MUA Lipsticks the quality is great, I always find the pigmentation to be amazing, their formula is always really creamy and they just glide onto your lips for easy application and feel so smooth and easy to wear. It's hard to believe that these lipsticks are just £1.00 each, you really cant go wrong with that bargain price.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair £4.19
A good coverage long lasting concealer is a must for me and my horrid dark under eye circles, and the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer is by far the best high street concealer there is in my opinion. It has a nice creamy formula making it super easy to work with and blend, it provides full long lasting coverage without looking cakey and not only is it great to cover blemishes and dark circle's but it helps conceal and fill pores too. I'm so in love with this concealer and I always repurchase it over and over.

MUA Undressed Eye Shadow Palette £4.00
MUA really do make an amazing eye shadow palette and their Undressed palette is one of my favourites, its an amazing dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palette too so if you like the look of the Urban Decay palette but cant justify the price I'd definitely go for the Undressed palette. The Undressed palette contains 12 highly pigmented eye shadows, two of which are completely matte with the rest are either pearl or metallic. The one thing that truly amazes me with this is palette is it's staying power, I have oily eyelids and in the summer they are worse than ever, I found the eye shadows in the Undressed palette to be the only eye shadows that stayed in place all throughout the summer with no fading, creasing or smudging and that alone impresses me no end!!! Also it's an absolute beauty steal at just £4.00, it really is a must in any ones make up collection.

And there you have it, my top 5 make up bargains that are great quality and wont break the bank!!!

I hope you enjoyed this different kind of post girlie's, feel free to tell me what your beauty bargains are too, I'd love to know!!!
