Are you a beauty on a budget who’s stumped on where to start?

Here are our top 6 picks under $5 and why we love them!


#1 Maybelline Lipstick Bold Matte MAT7 Pink Nude



The Maybelline Bold Matte range has some gorgeous peach and red shades, but Pink Nude is a definite stand out.

This dazzling shade is perfect for a gleaming yet natural wash of colour.

The lipstick dries with a lovely matte finish, yet still feels smooth and moisturised due to the luxurious honey nectar it contains.

Yes, please!


#2 Essie Nail Polish Peak Show



Essie (our soulmate) has such a large range of nail colours, it’s almost impossible to know which one to get. However, Peak Show seems to be a favourite!

This polish is a baby powder pink that will flatter every skin tone. It’s neutral enough to be universal and match any look, yet its subtle pink wash adds a hint of flirtation and femininity.

Peak Show also compliments Maybelline’s Pink Nude lipstick really well. Win win!


#3 L'Oreal Infallible Longwear Concealer Vanilla



How difficult is it to find a good concealer?

Not too difficult anymore thanks to L’Oreal’s Infallible Longwear Concealer. This stuff is the real deal.

This waterproof concealer utilizes tested long-wear technology for ultimate staying power. It blends effortlessly and provides flawless coverage.

The Vanilla shade is excellent for fair to medium skin tones as it’s light enough to conceal dark circles and brighten the under-eye area. Find your shade here!


#4 Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter Sugar Frosting



Revlon’s ColorBurst Lip Butter provides a glistening shine the stars will envy!

Its gel formula allows the buttery lipstick to glide on with ease. It contains hydrating mango, shea butter and coconut butter for ultimate moisture and pleasant softness.

Sugar Frosting is understandably a favourite as it’s your staple pink nude but it also makes your lips look and feel incredible. Shine on, baby. Shine on.
