Is it just me or does £5 get you a lot less these days? As a kid, £5 was some serious money and would last me a whole day in my local town centre - including getting lunch! But nowadays, i spend more than that so easily! I'm a lover of a good bargain and i would say most of my favourite products are high street/drugstore items so i had a look through my collection and decided which were my top 5 beauty items under five pounds....
NYC Smooth skin Sunny Bronzer (£1.99) - I can never quite believe the price of this. I picked this up after hearing a lot of great things and it's never disappointed. For pale girls, this is the ultimate go-to contour powder that never looks orange and is easy to use. For under £2 too - it's so cheap!
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19) - A beauty bloggers favourite. I've been using this for years. It easily conceals dark circles and any blemishes without feeling heavy on the skin. It comes light enough for my skin tone too which is a massive bonus.
Models Own Colour Chrome Silver Polish (£4.99) - For nail polish, my favourite two brands are Models Own and Barry M. But Models Own recent release - the Colour Chrome Collection - features this gorgeous nail polish. It doesn't chip easily, looks gorgeous on and is super shiny!
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeliner (£3.99) - The one i've shown is the nude version but i love every shade of this especially the black. It's super pigmented, lasts a really long time on the waterline and has a great formula that doesn't tug at your skin at all. Best Kohl eyeliners ever.
Maybelline ColorTattoo (£4.99) - Love these. I use them on their own, as an eyeshadow primer or as part of a look. They're versatile, they have a nice range of colours and keep my powder eyeshadow on for longer. They're easy to blend and look great by themselves on the lid.
