Makeup Revolution, Skin Kiss Highlighter in ‘Ice Kiss’ – RRP £5.00
I’ve ranted and raved about this incredible highligher non stop since I purchased it months ago. I actually bought all 3 shades as I couldn’t bring myself to leave one behind, but Ice Kiss is by far my favourite. It is so pigmented, shimmery, long lasting and the pan it comes in is absolutely gigantic. You get so much and such amazing quality for your money, this is a MUST!

Collection Primed & Ready Invisible Setting Powder – RRP £2.99
As a woman (does anyone else still giggle when they refer to themselves as woman?) with oily skin, setting powder is essential. A decent setting powder is usually close to the £10 bracket, and the amount I seem to go through is making quite the dent in my wages. Introducing the Collection Setting Powder! Oh my goodness, for a cheap pressed powder it is absolutely amazing. It is so finely milled that it just sits on top of your skin, and as it’s ‘invisible’ is doesn’t interfere with the colour of your foundation and so on. Witch hazel is also infused into the powder which is a God send for me, as I suffer with acne prone skin. I have been using this little gem daily for well over 2 months, and I’ve barely scratched the surface. At £2.99 I think it’ll take me a lot to stray!
Makeup Revolution Luxury Banana Powder – RRP £5.00
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m just obsessed with Makeup Revolution. They have such amazing products as amazing prices, and this is no exception. This beauty has been compared to the Ben Nye Banana Powder and from reviews and images and everything else, they look identical. Except for the Ben Nye version is double the price. It does such a wonderful job of setting and brightening up the under eyes. It is so fine and settles so wonderfully on the skin. It’s my holy grail. My only bug bear is the application is a mess, but for £5.00 I will gladly suck it up.
NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in ‘Sandstorm’ – RRP £4.00
Can I get a hallelujah for all my thin lipped beauties?! I’m with you on that front. So when I want a more dramatic looking lip, ya girl needs that lipliner. And I’m all about NYX Suede Lip Liner, it’s so creamy when you apply it to the lips and the longevity of it is right up there. When I’m feeling like a daredevil, I use the lip liner all over my lips as the colour is just beautiful. And at £4.00 for a decent lip liner, it really isn’t to be sniffed at.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in ‘Fair’ – RRP £4.19
You all knew this was coming. I genuinely don’t think I’ve ever made a favourites list or a makeup routine without this little scamp getting involved. It really is my favourite under eye concealer. It’s so thick and highly pigmented, it just airbrushes out your dark circles and brightens them up. Essentially this concealer is liquid sleep, and I will never not repurchase!
Let me know if you’ve tried any of these babies out, and if there’s anything amazing I should try for under £5.00! Also be sure to check out Siyana’s post to see what her top 5 under £5 is!
