Five Beauty Gifts Under A Fiver

Chapstick Lip Kits

Chapstick Lip Kits

Christmas adds up! It just doesn’t need to be a bunfest of spendy – sometimes, it’s the little things that are the sweetest gifts. So, I just thought I’d do a quick round up of things I know I’d love to have (to be fair, some I already do!) as beauty treats that don’t leave your purse in tears. Above, the little Chapstick sets containing three different flavoured Chapsticks in a gorgeous little tin. Inside, you get strawberry, cherry and apple and the whole set is £4.25 HERE.

Mavala Bauble

Mavala Bauble

The Mavala Christmas Bauble, with a bronze shimmer polish inside is £4.95 HERE – I might put a cheap and cheerful Christmas decoration on the ribbon as well, but I can’t think who wouldn’t love this little treat.

Flutter Eye

Flutter Eye

The Superdrug Flutter Eye Palette is now reduced to £4 and it’s got nine eye shadow shades in the blue, pink and gold spectrums. It’s HERE.

Cherry Bath Fizzers

Cherry Bath Fizzers

The cutest little cracker set from M&S which each cracker containing a cherry scented bath fizzer.  There so cute, they’re silly! The set is £4.50 HERE.

Studio Smudge Liner Set

Studio Smudge Liner Set

Great for a flash of colour on the lids, this little set is at Superdrug for £4 HERE.

I think these are all really good value for money – often the brands you haven’t really heard too much of, such as Studio, make products for all sorts of other more expensive brands, so paying less doesn’t usually mean you’re getting less. It’s often a that you’re not paying for heavy marketing or advertising, which brings the price down.

And we don’t care what happened on Game of Thrones last week. Sorry, not sorry). She’s our #browbestie!

AQUA LIP Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil

16508

The extremely waterproof texture of this pencil allows to reshape and emphasize the lip contours. Ultra long-lasting and non-transferable, it stays on for hours, even in extreme conditions.

It is water and saliva resistant. It can be used on the entire mouth, after applying a non-oily skincare on the lips (Lip Contour Skincare Pencil). The range of matte shades offers natural tone-on-tone palettes and other more intense colors.
For hygiene purposes, sharpen the pencil well with the special pencil sharpener before each use to draw a precise line. – Draw a line directly on the contour of the lips, reshaping them if necessary. – It is essential to put the cap back on after each use in order to maintain the fluidity of the texture and the product’s waterproof properties. – To cover the lips, apply the Lip Skincare Pencil, leave to dry for 1 or 2 seconds. Then color the lips with the Aqua Lip pencil. To achieve a non-transferable result, wait for the product to dry (evaporation of the volatile oils). – To remove the product, use the Sens’Eyes makeup remover (for waterproof products).

To draw a full mouth, use 2 pencil shades : a dark one on the lip contour and a lighter one on the mouth and then blend together. You can also use a dark pencil on the contours and a lighter lipstick on the lips. Do not apply any oily substance (Lipstick, Gloss, etc.) on the pencil as this would cancel out the waterproof effect. This pencil has been designed to meet the requirements of professionals: natural colors for the film and television industry and intense colors for the stage and aquatic ballets. To make a mouth bigger (very thin lips) or to reshape the contour of a wrinkled mouth, make sure that the surface of the skin is not oily (foundation or cream) and if necessary, dust with powder before using the Aqua Lip pencil. To draw a full mouth, use 2 pencil shades : a dark one on the lip contour and a lighter one on the mouth and then blend together. You can also use a dark pencil on the contours and a lighter lipstick on the lips. On the beach, after applying sun cream and powder the lips before applying the Aqua Lip pencil in order to achieve a waterproof result. Do not apply any oily substance (Lipstick, Gloss, etc.) on the pencil as this would cancel out the waterproof effect.
