Top 5 under £5 – Eyes

Made From Beauty Top 5 under £5 - EyesI’m starting a bit of a series on Made From Beauty today, my Top 5 under £5. I’m going to challenge myself to hunt down some of the best beauty bargains for the face, the body, the lips…and today I’m starting with eyes.

There are some truly great products out there, even in the under £5 category, so let’s get started.

1.) Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in On & On Bronze -£4.99

Right up at the top end of the budget is the Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in On & On Bronze. A product I reach for on an everyday basis, the Maybelline Color Tattoos are long lasting, easy to apply, and create a gorgeous effect on the eye. Use this product as a base for other eyeshadows, or on its own for an easy shimmery eye, it’s the perfect all rounder. The shade On & On Bronze is one of Maybellines most popular, as it flatters all skin tones, with its cool toned bronzey goodness.

2.) Rimmel Eye Makeup Remover – £3.59

Made From Beauty Top 5 under £5 - Eyes - Rimmel Makeup Remover

This series isn’t only about makeup, that’s why I’ve included the Rimmel Eye Makeup Remover. I mentioned this product in my Just Take It Off post a while back, and I’ve been loving it ever since. It removes even the toughest makeup in one sweep, making it an amazing bargain find. You’ll have to move quick on this one though, rumor has it Rimmel are discontinuing this product!

3.) MUA Mono Eyeshadow in Copper – £1.00

Made From Beauty Top 5 under £5 - Eyes - MUA Copper Eyeshadow

Want a unique, high impact shadow for only £1.00?! I think we all do! MUA’s Mono Eyeshadow in Copper is a truly stunning shade. I would say this shadow is more of a pressed pigment than an eyeshadow, as it serious packs a punch in the pigment department. It’s soft to the touch, easy to blend and very buildable. Some of these MUA Mono Eyeshadows are a bit hit and miss, but this shade is a real hidden gem!

4.) Collection Little Mix All About The Eyes Palette – £3.19

If you thought one eyeshadow for £1.00 was good value, how about 6 for just over £3.00?! Collection has really hit it out the park with these eyeshadow palettes they recent released, but this collaboration palette with Little Mix has to be my favourite! The shadows are smooth, creamy, blendable and all housed in lightweight packaging perfect for your holidays! What more could you want? You can read my full review of the palette here.

5.) Seventeen Eyeshadow Mono in Statuesque – £3.89

And the final eye product coming in nicely under £5.00 is the Seventeen Mono Eyeshadows. Compared to the Collection palette, these might not seem as good value for money. But…the shades on offer in this collection are really unique and beautiful quality. My shade of choice has to be Statuesque, you can read my full review here.

I can’t wait to find more products under the £5.00 mark to recommend to you. I think the eye products here are great editions to any makeup bag, and it just goes to show you don’t always have to compromise on quality for price! So let the drugstore hunt begin!

    Great picks! I love the Maybelline pot, it`s such an amazing shade. I haven`t tried anything from Collection other than their concealer, but that palette looks great.

    The color tattoo is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I mean – I bought it in an inked in pink color because I prefer that for summer, but still. I love its pigmentation and it was soooo cheap. WORTH IT!
