Top 5 under £5!

Published August 21, 2012 by majormakeupmadness

Hey guys,

So we all love it when we find a makeup product we love, but what’s even better…when its cheap! So here are my favourite products that are under £5!  


1) Collection 2000 Glam crystal glitter liners.

Ive used these for about 2 years now, not everyday but when I want an extra bit of sparkle. I love to replace my typical black liquid liner with these for a blast of colour. They are £2.99 each, which is great considering they are long-lasting, well pigmented and generally just fun for experimenting with.

2) Maybelline Color tattoo eyeshadows.

These are also faboosh. I can honestly say that these are the only cream shadow that doesn’t crease on me without a primer! They are £4.99 here in the UK and are often on a ‘3 for 2’ offer in boots or superdrug. They are widely available and have a smooth formula so you dont tug on your eye while applying. They have 7 colours available in the UK.

3) MUA Lipstick

This is not my most used lipstick but I love the creamy texture. They are only £1 in Superdrug. Crazy right? They have a few colours, I have too, the one shown and a bright red, but I dont use the red much so there was no point in showing it. I think they are great value and again have decent pigmentation, some people have even commented before they are comparable to more expensive brands!

4) Elf Mineral lipgloss

These Ive had a few months now, and I love them. Im not a huge lipgloss fanatic but I do love them every now and then and I find myself reaching for these. They are £3.50 on the elf website and are not sticky atall! If theres one thing I cant stand its a stick lipgloss, but they are smooth and silky. There are 11 shades and they all look beautiful. I have 3 shades.

5) Sleek powder blushes

I definately saved the best for last! If I could on chose 1 product from the Top 5 I shown it would be these. Where to start. These are great, they all have fantastic pigmentation, and are easy to blend. If I didn’t know they were £4.49 I would have thought they were high-end. I actually prefer them to some of my high-end blushes. There are so many colours and I may be slowly collecting them 🙂
