5 under £5.00

When I look through my dressing table at my products and makeup there is a surprising amount of budget/drugstore items, more than what I realised, as I am always in the department stores purchasing more premium branded makeup. We've got such an amazing high street in the UK with some really great brands, making makeup, skincare, hair care etc so easily accessible. 

I thought I would do a quick post on my top 5 under £5.00 because you can really pick up some great items on our high street for this price. Firstly is the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette, this is a brilliant dupe for the Naked Palette. This contains 12 shades and are pink/brown/purple neutral shades, the shadows themselves are really buttery soft and blend so easily. At £4.00 this is a no brainer.

When it comes to lipstick I am completely smitten with the ELF Matte Lip Colors at the moment. They are a matte finish but not at all drying on the lips. The red shade is the perfect red, it's a lovely true warm toned red and I personally think it would suit majority of skin tones. The screw bottom is really handy to pump the product up and with having quite a small nib you can be really quite precise. At £3.95 you still get change from £5.00. 

I have always sworn by the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle hair treatments, they inject a massive boost of moisture into your hair making hair super soft, nourished and healthy looking. You can buy different treatments for different concerns such as heat damaged, colour treated etc. For £4.99 there should be an Aussie 3 Minute Miracle in every womans bathroom cabinet. 

For me personally Barry M offers one of the best ranges of shades and finishes for nail varnishes at such a fantastic price of £2.99. They always seem to stay lovely and glossy on my nails and stay chip free for a good 7-10 days. I never come across another woman that doesn't own at least one Barry M nail varnish

And lastly St Moritz Tanning Mousse is the best tanning product I have ever come across. It's a great dupe for St Tropez at a fraction of the cost and to be completely honest I actually prefer this to the St Tropez products. It leaves a streak free, natural looking tan. At a price of  £4.99 you really can't go far wrong.
