Budget Beauty:5 For £5

8 Nov 2013

These days, it's very hard to find a quality product at a cheap price. In my opinion, I feel I'm not at an age to splurge on expensive, high end make-up on a regular basis and so will stick to the good ol' highstreet where you can find some of the best bargains! This is just a quick post to tell you my top 5 high street products for under £5 each.

1. Barry M Gelly Shine Nail Varnishes £3.99 - these were a big release over the summer months which I fell in love with fairly quickly and for such a quality nail varnish, the price is nothing! I was never a big fan of the Barry M nail varnishes as a whole as I found I had to really layer them up but I don't find that with this collection of theirs and they go on so well and most people would be happy with just one layer!

2. MUA Eye shadow palettes £4- at £4 these are a bargain! I only own the Undressed palette (as you're probably aware of as I use it in nearly every post!) And I love it! I expected it to 'hit pan' on certain colours that I use all the time almost straight away but I'm still yet to on any of the colours and I've had it for ages! There is a few different palettes and I really advice you to check them out!

3. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer £3.99- I don't seem to imagine a future without this product in it and I can't begin to imagine my expression if I ever find this product becomes discontinued or the formula has changed because this concealer has such good coverage for how affordable it is!

4. Rimmel Stay Matte Powder £3.99- When I first bought this product it was my saviour and even though it can look cakey, I've learnt to control this and it is well worth the money I paid.

5.Natural Collection Blushes £1.99 -people who seem to use Natural Collection products are normally labelled as a 'make-up newbie' and if I was to suggest a brand to someone just starting out with make-up then yes, I would suggest it but I think it's a brand that's easily dismissed and their blushes are fabulous! ' I own the colour 'blushed cheeks' and I know there isn't a wide range of choices but there is one for everyone! 
So maybe before you head over to Selfridges to splash your cash on a high end product check the highstreet for something that may suit you better!
Do you any good dupes of products better on the highstreet than high end? Would be great to know for a future post!
Hope you're having a good day! x


  1. I absolutely adore my MUA undressed palette too, I'm hoping to get more of them and some sleek ones as well!

    1. The Sleek ones look really good and I'm yet to try them because I'm loving the mua ones so much at the moment :-)!
