Favorite Drugstore Beauty Products UNDER €5

Beauty wise 2016 has been a great year for me. I've done so many great makeup discoveries for such incredible and affordable prices that I have have created an entire playlist of my TOP 5 makeup and beauty videos on my youtube channel. Today, I've decided to bring that series on my blog and talk to you about 5 of my favorite drugstore makeup and beauty products under 5 euros. They are true drugstore makeup gems and absolute must haves in my everyday makeupand of course beauty routine. Let's have a look!

Essence Lash Princess Mascara €3.39

There is not one mascara that makes my eyelashes look longer and thicker and more voluminous than the Essence Lash Princess Mascara. The formula is extra black, it's longlasting, coats my lashes evenly and it doesn't flake!

Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara €2.59

The Essence Make Me Brow is a product I've been using on a daily basis ever since it was released. It keeps my brows in place all day long and because it has a great deal of fibers in its formula it is an awesome product if you're looking for adding some volume and thickness to your brows. 

Miss Sporty Perfect Stay 10h Liquid Concealer €2.99

I discovered this makeup gem when I was having a liquid concealer craze a while back, this one from Miss Sporty stood out big time! It's moisturising, creamy, has beautiful coverage and gives a gorgeous fresh and lively complexion. 

Catrice Shine Appeal Fluid Lipstick €3.99

These are a must have in my handbag. They smell like vanilla cake, have great pigmentation and are super moisturising. I purchased 2 very similar nude colors but there are 10 more shades to choose from. They are perfect for touch ups throughout the day, no matter which lipstick you were wearing hours before.

KIKO 3in1 Shine Base & Top Coat Nail Care €4.90

When it comes to nails, the KIKO 3in1 Shine Base & Top Coat, is an absolute must have! Not only does it make my manicure last longer but it also strengthens my nail beds. Oncoat of this product will prevent my nails from splitting, pealing and breaking, I recommend it!

  1. Just brilliant, I feel like I read everything I needed to know. Sometimes I think I am so lazy in describing things.
    Xxx Becca

    1. Aw thanks, you're so sweet :) Love you! Xxxx

  2. These are lovely picks, however, I tried the Essence Lash Princess mascara (but the green one) and I didn't like it, I heard so many great reviews and I wanted to try it so bad, but it was so dry! My biggest disappointment ever! :)


    1. I didn't like the green one at first either until I started using it underneath other mascaras as a base :) you should try!

  3. I most definitely cannot live without my Maybelline Mineral Concealer. It's a great dupe for UD Naked Skin Concealer. I have tried both, and would definitely prefer purchasing the cheaper ones.

    Anyway I just recently bought the Essence Make Me Brow Gel Mascara (thanks to you!!), and I've been loving it so far! :D

    1. I've never heard about that concealer before, I'm going to check it out at the drugstore next time :) I'm so glad you like the Essence brow gel formula! I'm at my second tube now, it's amazing :D

  4. I also love the Catrice shine appeal fluid lipsticks but they are discontinuing them, they will keep only the four intense shades which I find to be too pigmented

    1. Such a pity, i checked the website and I'm also not really a fan of the shades they'll keep :/

  5. Thanks for your recommend.

  6. Catrice HD foundation is fantastic! Yes, it oxidizes but it’s ok, the coverage is perfect, I like it more than Dior Forever which has been my fave for a long time. Essence nails polishes are beyond great!The “Serendipity” is the most chic nude/cool toned purple color, and I try lots of stuff high end and drug store! Brow gel is great, also transparent one that can be used as a base for eyelashes! Essence NoColor Matte powder is better than anything I tried ! And Catrice concealer in a pot is a must!! The list is long! H&M creamy eyeshadow pencils, have u tried? They r amazing !! And NyX Faux Whites pencil in lavander blush for waterline! Súper as well...��
