Top budget buys for £5 and under


It's been nearly a whole month since I gave you guys the last instalment of my 'Top Budget buys' series, So I figured It's about time I showed you my top five products for under £5 - Although you can still click to see my Top Budget buys for £2 and under post as well as my Top Budget buys for under a £1 one.


MUA Eyeshadow Palettes (£4.00) 

These were the first thing to cross my mind when thinking of my favourite products for under £5. These Palettes are amazing and such a huge steal at just £4 each! I currently own four (and think two of them were free at some point), Even though I have 46 shades from these palettes - I still want more! You can see my thoughts on Undressed,  Going for gold, Glamour days, and heaven and earth by clicking on each name


Would you look at the state of this now! I've used this product so much that I've actually hit pan on the middle concealer (Which never happens to me), I think this is a great little 'on the go' essential - I think I need a back up ASAP!


These kinds of water spritz have caused quite a stir in the blogging world lately, although spending an awful amount of money on what was essentially water wasn't too appealing to me, until I saw this Rose Water Spritz on sale in Boots for just over £3, It's a lovely product - especially when it's warmer here (Which is pretty rare)


MaxFactor Max Effect Mini nail Polish (£3.99)

Fantasy Fire had a huge hype surrounding it, So I couldn't believe my luck when I spotted one in Boots last May - These sell for stupid prices online, I'm gutted I didn't pick more up (And they were 3 for 2!) I did have some images of this in action although back in June I had some laptop issues meaning I lost everything! Maybe I'll get around to giving this its own post some day because it is lovely!


Vivo Baked Blush (£4.00) 

Last but by no means least is another product from Vivo! I've never been a huge fan of blush but 'peaches and cream' changed that! I really enjoy using this product and feel like it is a credit to the Vivo line!

What is your favourite product for under £5?

  1. I've never seen the Vivo brand anywhere before, where can you pick them up from? All of these products look great - I can't believe I don't own a mua palette yet! x

  3. I keep meaning to try some Vivo stuff out. Fantasy Fire is pretty but massively overhyped! I like the dinky bottles too, might actually finish that one one day!

    1. I really like Vivo - I want to try more from them!
      I don't think I would pay more than £3.99 for it, but for the RRP it gives a lovely effect xxx
