♥ Five Under Five Pounds

With being a student and all, budget beauty buys are a massive weakness of mine. It's always a brilliant feeling to find a product you can use time and time again and not feel too guilty doing so. These are my five current beauty bargains that all come in at under five pounds and if you haven't picked them up yet - get to it!

Maybelline Baby Lips
I've spoken about these little tubes of greatness a few times. I sing their praises all the time and it's with very good reason. Priced at only £2.99 you can't go wrong. With eight options available, some providing you with a splash of colour and the others following a traditional transparent formula, there is one you're bound to love. My favourite pick of the bunch is definitely Cherry Me!

MUA eyeshadow palette in Undressed
The world of eyeshadow is really new to me. I've not long bothered with it as I always went for a more natural look and finished with a bit of liquid liner, but as I've started experimenting with makeup, eye shadow palettes are becoming a weakness. This amazingly pigmented 12 shade palette costs only £4 from Superdrug and has shades to wear down, on a hot summers day or the darker tones in the palette can be used to dress up any eye look of an evening! It's a brilliant alternative to the higher priced palette's bloggers go on about!

Rimmel's Wake Me Up Concealer
A huge favourite of mine is Rimmel's Wake Me Up concealer. It's a brilliant little wand that can brighten up under the eyes and really help to illuminate dull skin that costs just over five pounds. It has decent longevity and looks super natural. It's a perfect addition to any make up bag!

Barry M Lipstick
Lipstick is another thing I've never really bothered with. I just didn't feel confident enough to wear it and this is the first one I ever dared to purchase. It's quite a dark shade - 160, I'm not too sure of the name though - and it's perfect for a darker make up look on nights out! I used this all through winter and costing as little as it does I was surprised by how well it lasted! Sometimes I'd wake up after a night out and still have traces of it on my lips! Definitely a good price for a lipstick if you're unsure and don't want to splash out. Another brilliant thing about this is the range of shades Barry M do. There is definitely a shade to suit everyone.

Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Liner
I have repurchased this time and time again. It's my favourite liquid eyeliner and it lasts all day long. It's very black and the flexible wand is perfect for an easy application. It's a great product and I always have a back up around! It is a little over five pounds, but the extra fifty pence isn't going to be missed.

*I know the two Rimmel products come in at over five pounds, so it's a bit cheeky of me to include them, but at the time of posting this Rimmel products are two for £10 in Superdrug so you can pick them up for five pounds each! 

Have you used any of these products, or does the tiny price tag make you curious to try them? Let me know!
