Top 5 Things For Under A Fiver

Hey guys,

I saw Miss Budget Beauty do a video on her top 5 products for under a £5 so I decided to do my version. I think this is a great idea as I know most of us don't have a lot to spend on cosmetics and beauty in general, so it's good to see what other people really rate. 

You can see Miss Budget Beauty video here!

EcoTools 5 Piece Brush Set from eBay -£3.49
These have literally been one of my best buys, I pretty much use these everyday as they are great for touch ups midday. They are small enough to easily fit into your bag but big enough not to get lost. You can read my review here.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara - £4.99
This was the first mascara I have ever purchased and I still love it. It lengthens, volumizes, curls, and adds definition which makes my lashes look absolutely stunning, but still natural. It also never clumps. The packaging is also really cute and bright which I like. Maybelline also does a lot of different brushes but I've only tried the normal one. Overall this is a really great product and it's not that expensive, so you should try it!

Carmex Tube Cherry - £2.59
I love how soft the Carmex lip balm makes my lips feel, it isn't sticky and doesn't leave any gunky residues or greasy feeling on my lips. It also has a fairly good staying power. You can read my review here.

I couldn't find my last two products so here's them off googles images.

MUA Matte Eyeshadow Shade 19 (in fact any of there eyeshadow colours) - £1
I use this everyday to fill in my brows and I don’t know what I would do with out it. It is a matt brown colour that goes with my hair without looking too dark or light. Really all the MUA eyeshadows are amazing for the price.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Powder - £1.99/2.99
This is another product I use pretty much everyday. I have bought many other powders which normally end up being too orange or dark, but when I apply this to my skin but it's perfect. You can read my review here.

I hoped you liked my post, and if you decide to do one like it leave me a link, I would love to read it <3

Leave me a comment too as I love reading and responding to them,
