5 Beauty Bargains that cost under a fiver!

Sleek Hide It Concealer- £1.49 @ Boots

Now, I love all Sleek Makeup. Their prices are low but the products still perform well and can compete against pricier brands. This concealer matched my skin stone perfectly which meant I had good coverage as opposed to a patchy mess that I usually end up with. It is creamy, light and easy to use so I would definitely call this a steal. Another product I would recommend from Sleek is their Blush in 939 Sahara. It is a dark Brown red and as well as being a great blush it also hides any imperfections on the cheeks.

Maybelline The Great Lash Mascara- £4.99 @ Boots

This is something I would call a timeless product. It isn't new but always appears as a great mascara in any magazine you may read. I am sure you have all seen the iconic green and pink bottle on a store shelf before- next time you see it- throw it in your basket! It honestly is a great product: it makes lashes long, very thick and black. It doesn't clump, flake or irritate the eyes and that's a lot more than I can say for some other mascaras that I have tried in the past.

MeMeMe Pussy Cat Cheek and Lip Tint- £4.99

MeMeMe. Where can I begin? This company steals Benefit's ideas and repackages them. Am I complaining? No! Benefit's products, although they are great are out of reach for many young girls just because of their price tag- and I'm not an exception to that. This is basically just a less pricey version of Benetint and I am loving it!

Barry M Dazzle Dust- £4.99 @ Superdrug

Barry M is a brand that is ALWAYS on my dresser. The Dazzledusts are basically a cheap but elusive dupe for MAC's pigments. Barry M gives a lovely Strong colour, doesn't crease when used with a good base and I think it's fairly easy to apply. Be forewarned though- if you are messy this is not for you!!

Miss Sporty Fabulous Lip Tints- Definitely under s fiver @ Superdrug

I got these a long time ago when they were launched and I have loved them ever since. I can't actually remember how much I paid for it but it was definitely under a fiver and I am happy with what I got for that amount. The gloss is not sticky- unlike MAC glosses, it applies smoothly and smells wonderful. An all round winner!

  1. Oh my goodness! I love the great lash mascara, it is lovely! It seperates my lashes, I always tend to buy this over the oh so very fancy mascaras!
