5 Under £5 - Makeup

I'm definitely a drugstore girl at heart so doing a 5 under £5 just seemed like something I would have to do. I've made this just about makeup, I might do one for skincare soon if I can find some great products but for now here's some of my favourite makeup products that are under £5. 
5 Under £5
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Liners
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Liner - £3.99.
When planning this post I knew I had to include these. I have the shades Nude, Taupe and Bright Blue and I love them all. These apply really nicely, are cream so you can blend them but once they've set they don't budge all day. The nude is perfect on the waterline to brighten things up and the bright blue is really vibrant, for these price these are worth every penny. 
Collection Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream
Collection Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream - £2.99.
I've recently rediscovered my love for these. I have the shades, Powder Puff, Cotton Candy and Fairy Cake. These are really creamy and apply nicely onto the lips. They dry matte leaving a nice stain of colour yet don't feel drying on the lips. They're definitely one of my favourite matte lip products.
Seventeen Stay Time 18 Hour Concealer
Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick in Raspberry - £1.99.
I have a few of these lipsticks but this shade is a real stand out. It's creamy and feels balmy on the lips. The shade raspberry is a nice pinky/plum shade which I love in the colder months yet isn't too dark; perfect for everyday wear.
Seventeen Stay Time 18 Hour Concealer -  £4.49.
This one just fits under the £5 cut off and is one of my favourite drugstore proudcts; it's actually one of my favourite concealers. First thing, the shade fair is actually fair. It applies creamy and covers really well without looking cakey and stays put all day. 
Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Blusher in Loved Me The Best
Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Blusher in Loved Me The Best - £2.50.
A pretty new product for me which I think is just really amazing. This baked blush is so pigmented and applies lovely onto the skin. It has a slight sheen to it which helps to give a healthy glow to the skin. This shade is the perfect plum shade which I can see myself using even more in the colder months. 

So those are my 5 under £5 makeup products. There's definitely more I could have included so no doubt there will be another one of these posts in the future. What are some of your favourite products that cost £5 or less?


  1. The collection lip cream is definitely on my list I love a matte lip xx
