I think I should start by saying that everything in the post is my own opinion, and I will only be mentioning products that I have tried.
I decided to do this post, as I love a bargain and there is no better feeling than getting something for a good price, with amazing quality.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – £4.19
This concealer is everywhere, I’m pretty sure that everyone raves about it, a I have never heard a bad thing about it. I have actually never tried any other concealers, but have got through about six of these. I don’t know about anyone else, but I find that one tube of this will last me a really long time. The consistency is thick and almost like paste, so it doesn’t start running down the face on application which is really handy. I also think that the lasting power is incredible, and even though it does fade slightly, it isn’t noticeable.
Maybelline Colour Tattoo – £4.99
I’ve done a full post raving about these, so if you would like more detail on them, you can check that out by clicking here
. This product is a cream gel, so instead of being pressed powder it is in fact a gel which means that these products can be used as a base or on their own, as the colour pay off is incredible. The shades that I like the most are On and On Bronze and Pink Gold. On and On Bronze is the typical bronze shade which is amazing to use as a base in order to create a bit of a dramatic look, where as I like to wear Pink Gold on its own for a subtle pink over the eyes.
Collection Extreme Coloured Length Mascara Black – £2.99
At £2.99 this is a bargain! I think the formula is spot on, as it is thick enough to add volume and length, but thin enough to keep the lashes apart. I like to apply this on my bottom lashes now that I have used a lot of the product, as I think it adds just the right amount of colour and makes the lashes look longer, but not too long.
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder – £3.99
This is a great powder that is sure to keep your foundation in place and to keep the shine away from the face. I do think that it has to be reapplied every 3-4 hours just to ensure that everything stays in place all day, but this powder is not cakey and offers a natural finish, so reapplication shouldn’t really be a problem, because the product is not likely to build up.
Rimmel Natural Bronzer – £4.49 (Shade 022 Sun Bronze)
I love this bronzer, as it’s matte. I like to wear both a bronzer and a highlighter instead of a bronzer that has shimmer in it, as I just think that the look is better. I love how the colour isn’t orange, but instead leaves a nice natural looking colour. I also love how they blend, as I think they blend nicely and they apply smoothly.
I hope this post helps you, whether you’re starting to get into make-up or simply looking for a product with a nice price tag, do you have any products under £5 that you love?
