Beauty doesn't need to break the bank. There are so many great finds on the high street that you don't need to splurge on almost anything! Here I've listed 10 of my favorite drugstore products for under £5.00 for which I would willingly pay more because they work just as good if not better than their more expensive equivalents.
The Cocoa Butter Moisturising Body Cream (£5.00) from Marks & Spencer is one of my favorite body lotions/butters! It smells heavenly and feels very luxurious and light on the skin. I still love The Body Shop and Soap and Glory products but lately I've been reaching for this one much more often.

The V05 Plump It Up Amplifying Blow Dry Lotion (£3.65) is a heat defense that not only protects my hair when I blow dry or style it, it also makes it appear thicker and volumized! In other words, it does exactly what it promises!

The Got2be Powder'ful Volumizing Styling Powder (£4.05) works like magic! It's great when your hair appears flat and lifeless. You put a little in your roots and POOF!

The Boots Vitamin E Gentle Eye Cream (£2.54) is one of the best eye creams that I've tried. It's light, it's not oily and feels great on the skin. And it's perfect for the summer season as it has build in SPF 15 which protects the gentle skin around the eyes from the harmful UV ray.

Natural Collection has some of my favorite blush colors in their Blushed Cheeks line (£2.54). They are easily blendable and as the name suggests look very natural on the skin. This particular one is Peach Melba.

I also love the Sleek Blushes (£4.49). The colors are absolutely gorgeous and the blushes are so pigmented you only need the tiniest bit of product to go a long way. The different finishes and shades provide something for every taste. This one is from the limited edition Aqua Collection in Mirrored Pink.
When I feel like wearing a bold color on my lids but don't want to go all out with eye shadow I often reach for the Barry M Liquid Eyeliner in Electric Blue (£4.79). The formula is very easy to work with and very pigmented. it's actually true to the packaging.

The Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Stick in Bad Girl Bronze (£4.49) by Rimmel London is one of my most used makeup products. It's incredibly creamy and I use it on its own, as a liner, or s eyes shadow base. I will definitely be buying the rest of the colors from the line!

The Maybelline Color Tattoo by Eyestudio (£4.99) is probably not a surprise to anyone. They go on creamy but dry to powder and I love using them as eye shadows or as a base on my lids. On and On Bronze and Turquoise Forever are the two sades that I own but I am definitely looking to exapand my collection.

The 12 Color Eye Shadow Palettes by MUA (Makeup Academy)(£4.00) are great! They are pigmented, the colors are beautiful and and so seamlessly blendable! I use the Undress Me Too palette almost every day and the colors stay on all day without creasing or fading. These here are the Undress Me Too (dupe for the Naked 2 Palette), Undress Me (Dupe for the Naked palette) and Poptastic. They are currently sold out everywhere due to high demand but will probably be back soon.

The last product I want to mention is by MUA (Makeup Academy) again. The Power Pout Colour Intense Tint & Balm Line (£3.00) is my favorite line of lip crayons. Creamy, moisturizing and pigmented they look and feel sensational. This one is in the shade Runway, but I just want to have all the shades! Gotta catch them all! :)))
