We all love budget beauty, bargains and 3 for 2 offers. I've been using these 5 products constantly over the past 2 or 3 weeks and it occurred to me they are all under £5, so that has got to be a post, right?

Kicking off the proceedings is Maybelline's Baby Lips, out of all of them 'Minty Fresh' is my favourite. Hydrating, cute packaging, it's a lip balm but it does the job perfectly for just £2.99.

It's no secret I love this blusher from MakeUp Academy (MUA) in the shade Lolly. A pretty orange/coral colour for the Summer, it warms up the complexion, lasts ages and is a £1.00. It blends BEAUTIFULLY!


Rimmel's ScandalEyes waterproof kohl eyeliners are amazing, everyone raves about them and sings their praises. They come in a wide variety of colours, are just £3.99 and last ages. Easy to apply, budget friendly, what more could you want?


Great Lash Mascara from Maybelline is iconic, does the job, no gimmicks or flashy packaging, a simple great everyday mascara for £4.99.  No flaking or cakeyness here!

You need something good to take off this lot, so head to Escentual where you can pick up the one and only Bioderma.  This small pot is only 100 ml, but lasts ages and whips off every single trace of any makeup applied. Great for all skin types.

If you buy Bioderma from Escentual through June, you get 1/3 off all French skin care, yay I hear you cry! The 100 ml is reduced from £4.50 to £3.00 and 250ml is reduced from £9.99 to just £6.66. I believe postage and packing is free as well! They also sell La Roche-Posy, Avene and tonnes more besides.
