Top 5 Under £5

by - May 16, 2016

Hey everyone, today I thought that I would take a little step back from my regular Lou's Guide To and do a Top 5 under £5. I think I have done this before but my picks have changed and a lot of you didn't see that post so I thought I would do another! I hope you enjoy this post and I will see you again on Wednesday! xx

1- Natural Collection Mascara

This mascara is great if you are starting out in make up or you are just on a tight budget. It comes in brown/black and black so you can pick which you prefer. It lengthens your lashes but still keeps them looking really natural which is nice for a day to day basis but not so much for an evening look but you could try and build it up if you wanted to. This is also super super cheap as its only £1.99.

2- Maybelline 24hr colour tattoo

I have 2 of these and I absolutely adore them! I have 096 Creamy Beige and 35 On and On Bronze. They do a gorgeous shade range and cater for all skin tones. This feels like it sticks to my eyelids, but in a good way. They stay on all day without creasing and I tend not to put a primer on with it as well. These are just under the £5 budget as they are £4.99 but I feel they should be a lot lot more but I'm not complaining. ;)

Left - 096 Right - 35

3- Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipsticks

The first thing I am going to say about this is stay away from the glittery ones. I bought a glittery one and it literally comes out as pure glitter so steer clear from the glittery ones where possible. I do however, have on in Pink Mallow and it is a gorgeous pink/nude colour that is perfect in spring. I wouldn't say they are particularly shiny but they are quite moisturising. Again, these are extremely affordable as they are only £1.99.

4- Nivea Micellar Water

This is honestly my favourite cleanser ever. It gets rid of make up really easily and cleanses your face well without being too harsh on the skin. They do a Micellar water in every range they do and because I have sensitive/dry skin I obviously use the one from that range but most people say they like the ones from other ranges that they use :) This is also really affordable for a cleanser as it is £3.69

5- Simple Rapid Action Clear Skin Spot Zapper

This thing is AMAZING!!!! I love this product so much, it is a tube of product that you apply with a rollerball and it basically just gets rid of any spots super super quickly. I don't really know what else I can say about this apart from that is so affordable - it retails at £3.29 I think

Thank you so much for watching and a I will see you very very soon

Love Lou

  2. I tried the simple spot zapper a couple of years ago - I don't think it really did much at the time, but I might give it a other go! The eye shadow looks like a lovely colour!xx
