Top 5 Things For Under £10

Hey ladies,

Today I will be showing you my "Top 5 Things For Under £10" 

I wont ramble on as the title explains it all, so lets just get started :D

Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation - £9.99 
(I don't have this in my collection atm, as I haven't repurchased it yet, so that's why it isn't photographed!)

I love this foundation as it was my first one and it saved me from the dreaded teenage tango, orange face syndrome - which I am extemly grateful for! I'm as pale as they come and I had been searching every where for a foundation that was light enough. Really to the point that I didn't care how much it cost as long as it matched my skin, so when I found this it was pretty much a small miracle

This foundation is really creamy and doesn't have pink or yellow under tones, making it a really neutral colour. Which is perfect as sometimes I find pink ones leave me looking red and flushed, while yellow ones make me look like I have jaundice. The foundation is lovely to blend, very smooth and creamy without been too sticky or watery. I would say this foundation is verging on the full coverage. You can read my foundations comparison here.

Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara - £7.99

This is fastly become one of my favouite mascaras ever! It makes my lashes look definitely fuller and longer, as well as defining each lash. I have wrote a review on this mascara here!

Revlon Matte Lipstick in 002 Pink Pout - £7.49

Im pretty sure by now most people know that Revlon lipsticks are amazing for the cost, but Pink Pout is beyond that! Pink Pout is a pale light pink with mauve undertones. Its a matte lipstick which I love as I'm not too crazy over glossy lipsticks and is a dupe for MAC's Snob lipstick. You can see an comparison here.

Barbara Daly Tweezers - £6

I've got a post raving about these so I wont repeat myself but wow! These are so good! You get 3 pairs of tweezers in the set all ranging in shape, perfect for different areas. The tweezers are all really sharp and precise, and for £6 you really cant go wrong! You can read my post here.

Sleek Blush by 3 - £10

I don't technically own the 3 blush pallet but own the single ones, but I couldn't not put this on my list. Sleek makes amazing quality products, the pigmentation is wonderful and the texture is lovely, soft and easy to blend. I really suggest you check these out, because I know these are on my to buy list! I have a review of one of the Sleek blush here.

Do you like my picks? What would you choose?
