I'm back again with another 'Under £3' post! Woop woop! I do enjoy doing posts such as these, as not only does it force me to be savvy, but it just goes to show what great products you can buy for the tiny sum of £3. I always say it, but that's not even the price of a Starbucks coffee or a magazine these days!
So without further ado here are my current favourite under £3 beauty buys...
Essence Quattro Eyeshadow in Most Wanted 15
£3.00 - Wilko here or in-store
With every 'Under £3' post I seem to mention Essence, but when they insist on having such great quality products for such low prices I can't not mention them. This time I wanted to highlight you to the Essence Quatrro Eyeshadows as I have more than a handful of them now and have found them to be my favourite budget compact eyeshadows. The above palette is currently my most used out of the ones I own as the shades are great for an everyday eye and really do give great shimmer and pigmentation. I also love how buttery soft these eyeshadows are. Just amazing for the price.
W7 Lip Paint in Girlie & Queen of Hearts
£2.40 each - eBay here
Oh, just look at them swatches! Aren't they pretty? These two I just had to feature in this post as for the price them are god damn amazing. W7 always seem to surprise me with their products but these lip paints are something else! Think thick, but not too thick and with amazing pigmentation. These also feel great on the lips, not too smooshy around and when they do wear off they fade to a pleasing stain. Plus they are mint scented which is a nice extra touch. These come in all different red and pink tones, all of which are worth checking out, though the above two are definitely my favourite shades this summer.
Tara Smith Shampoo & Conditioner range
£1.99 each - Fragrance Direct here
Since ditching SLS (sulphates) from my beauty/hair routine years ago I've become obsessed with trying out different shampoos that are free from the chemical, especially low-cost options! So I was thrilled to see Fragrance Direct stocking Tara Smith as the brand is free from nasties and normally quite high-end at £10 per bottle. But of course FD have slashed that priced to only £1.99 - amazing! The above gorgeously packaged shampoo is the mildest from the range and is ideal for anyone with a dry or sensitive scalp and having been using this for the past month I can say it really is mild, though slightly drying on the hair - great if your hair tends to get greasy quickly I guess! But if you don't need something so mild I'd suggest either the 'Feed Your Roots' or 'Shine On' shampoo. These also look great in the shower! A fab bargain that's worth snapping up.
Primark P.S. Love You Nails Nail Polish Twist Pot
£1 - Primark in-store
Do you love the ease of nail polish twist pots? I know I do, and whether I pay £1 or £5 for one they seem to do the exact same job! So I was more than pleased to see a full sized nail polish pot in Primark for only £1! This works just as well as the Bourjois offering and removes nail polish with a few twists/dips of the nail. In actual fact I feel like the Primark one feels nicer on the finger/nail... not that it makes a difference but overall I think I prefer this one. Primark also have some amazing summer makeup bags in-store at the moment for £3 and some fabulous duo-chrome eyelash curlers that I feel I need!
Hope you have found some bargains from this little lot!
