Buying gifts for beauty junkies can prove to be quite expensive, so here's a quick round up of five pretty awesome beauty bits that come in at £5 or less. Everyone loves a beauty bargain, so if you can buy a great gift (or treat for yourself) and save a few pennies; it's a win-win!
Ebay is like a gold-mine for beauty treasure; you'll find thousands of korean beauty sellers aswell as cute beauty accessories like this skinny cosmetic pouches in a sweet floral print for less than £1! My favourite and most recent ebay beauty buy are these gorgeous lipsticks that are a relative steal at £1.99 a piece and come in a range of soft pinks, corals and soft reds. The ornate packaging and cute pastel bullet make them a lovely little gift and the pigmentation and formula are actually pretty good (standard wear time of a few hours, soft, hydrating and packed with colour).
Outside of the gold mine that is Ebay, there are tonnes of discounted cosmetic websites and one of my go-to sites is Fragrance Direct. Here I found the infamous Urban decay Naked 3 palette dupe from w7 for a bargainous £4.99 and a huge collection of full size essie nail polishes for about £2.50 a piece - a steal considering they are £7.99 each in Boots! Another great site for picking up some beauty gifts is Feel Unique and this bumper pack of face masks is the perfect pampering prezzie at £5 for five individual face masks.
