Top 5 |  Make Up Products Under £5

I've been doing lots of review lately and comments have been a little far and few in between, so i thought id switch it up a little bit for today's post and share with you my top 5 make-up products under £5 - sometimes some of the cheaper high street/drugstore products can prove themselves to be just as good as high end ones. I personally don't have an ever growing money tree that's funds my habit (if only) so its nice to know what some of the good quality cheaper products there are available.



MUA Eyeshadow Palettes - £4.00
This particular one is the 'Undressed' palette, but all of the MUA palettes are of the same quality and they have lot of different palettes available with a wide variety of shade so there is something to suit everyones taste. For the price, they have excellent pigmentation and could rival some high end brands. Two of the MUA Palettes have even been named dupes for the Urban Decay Naked palettes. These MUA Palettes are great cheap alternatives for people who don't quite fancy spending so much or are just on a tighter budget without losing the quality.

Sleek Blush - £4.49
This particular shade is 'Flamingo' - this is the only Sleek blush i have currently but trust me there are so many of them I'd love to add to my collection as they are really pigmented and i really like the packaging too as it's sturdy and compact. Sleek have a wide range of shades both shimmery and matte so you are bound to find something that tickles your fancy. When i first got this blush - i got it free in a set when i subscribed to Glamour a few years ago - i found this shade quite intimidating and didn't think there was anyway i could pull it off but its actually really pretty on. These Sleek Blushes are such good quality and definitely worth checking out.

Manshiu Longlasting Eyelash Extension Volume Length Curling Mascara  - £1.99
This was an impulse buy and i only ended up buying it purely because of the packaging - how could i resist?! It was a really pleasant surprise to find that its actually an amazing mascara, id honestly say it's close to being as good as the Benefit They're Real Mascara - it really lengthens my lashes, adds volume, is really long lasting and it doesn't smudge, and if that hasn't all ready impressed you it's only £1.99. As this is a Korean brand, i don't know if anywhere stocks it in the UK but i bought this off eBay.

H&M Bronzer - £4.99
This is a lovely warm toned bronzer, it does have a bit of shimmer in it but its really subtle at least Ive never noticed it when I've applied it to my face. I love this because it doesn't look over the top on my skin, darker toned bronzers intimidate me because i always worry about looking like i have a muddy face instead of the bronzed/contoured look I'm aiming for so i prefer the lighter toned bronzers that are more subtle. This bronzer is massive, I've been using mine for ages and I've not even hit pan yet. I feel this products is not mentioned half as much as it should be, its such a great product and a bargain too!

MUA Intense Kisses Lipgloss - £2
If your a regular reader of my blog you'll know I'm quite fussy with lip glosses, i hate ones that don't apply nicely and are really sticky and horrible to wear - so i find some of them quite hit and miss. The MUA Intense Kisses, however, i really like! These are comfortable to wear; they have a creamy formulation so they just glide onto the lips and there is none of that sticky business that i really hate. There really pigmented too and have quite a wide shade range too so you really can't go wrong.

What are some of your top products that are under £5?
