Five Under $5 - Beauty With Lily

Five Under $5

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

I was having horrible writers block as I sat down to type something up. I have plenty of ideas in my calendar, but nothing was working for me.
 
So I bring you, Five Under $5, I wanted to share with you lovelies five products that are great quality and at or under $5. Some of these items may not be new to some of you gals, but I think they deserve mentioning.
 
 
I plan on doing this on my blog at least once a month...along with a Ten Under $10 series. So make sure to follow for great inexpensive goodies.
 
Let's get started!

 
1. Sally Hansen Hard As Nail Xtreme Wear Nail Polish | $2.99
I have really enjoyed these polishes! Some of them are more opaque than others, but for the most part they are all really great quality polishes. They have a variety of colors and glittery polishes to pick from.
 
2. ELF Eyebrow Kit | $3.00
Filling in my brows is a must! I have used a few different products, but I always go back to my trusty ELF kit. The kit comes with a tinted wax and a powder and of course a double ended brush. I only use the tinted wax, it has great color pay off and lasts all day! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great brow filler.
 
3. EOS Lip Balms | $2.99
The packaging is just super cute! And the product does not disappoint. I have to have a lip balm with me at ALL times. There have been times where I forget mine while we are out, I always ask my husband to make a quick stop somewhere to buy one. I just hate having dry lips. Anyway, these little egg shaped lip balms are one of my favorite. And they smell delicious!
 
4. Wet N Wild Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana | $3.99
This product is marketed as a bronzer, but it's a really light shade to be used as one. It has a really nice sheen, not a shimmery or glittery sheen, and gives a pretty glow to the face. It works great as a highlight on the cheekbones and cupids bow.
 
5. Milani Color Statement Lipsticks | $4.97
These lipsticks are super opaque and not drying on the lips at all. They wear off nicely and don't stain the lips--at least on my lips. And they smell like watermelon!

Depending on the store, the prices vary, however, they are still at or under $5. I recommend every single one of these products, I really enjoy them all.

I hope you have all enjoyed this post and have found it helpful!

What are some of your personal under $5 faves?

Until next time loves!

XOXO, Lily


Daily Nuggets...

-So far the weather around here has been really nice, cloudy and a bit on the cooler side.

-Our sweet Sophie, she's a poochon, has been a bit sad lately, I think she misses Diesel.

-I'm having so much trouble with my computer...it's such a hassle!

-We are all still very sad over Diesel's loss, but I do want to thank each and every one of you for all the love and support! Love you all! <3

  1. I just starting using the Elf eyebrow kit last month, and love it so much! It's by far the best thing I've tried for my eyebrows. I really need to try the Milani Color Statements, I can't believe I haven't yet! Definitely going on my makeup to buy list! :)

  3. You are so lucky to have all these products available to you! We don't have eos, Milani, ELF or WetnWild in South Africa and it's sometimes such a hassle to order it online and pay for shipping... So jealous! :)

    There aren't a lot of good quality products here for under R50 ($5), but one brand that does stand out to me is Essence. They are super affordable and some of their products are great quality!

    I mentioned you in my latest blog post. xxx

  5. I love this series and the $10 and under series! Keep em coming love!!!

    Omg, I don't know where to start. Sally Hansen polishes are amazing! I love them all! I will pick up the E.L.F. brow kit once I'm out of my NYX powder that I use to do my brows. LOVE the EOS lip balms (the pink one is my most favorite!). Wet n Wild bronzers are awesome! You get SO MUCH product for $3.99! AND... I never tried the Milani lippies yet but I sure will pick one up the next time I run to Walmart!

    Thanks again love for sharing this!!!

    So sorry to hear that Sophie is sad =( That's how it was with my two doggies (they were sisters) Debbie and Lucie. After Lucie died, Debbie was so depressed for months! =*( I hope Sophie will start feeling happier soon! xx

  6. Oooooh how I love the Five Under Five posts! Lol so cute!

    I have been so nervous about doing my brows. I've never done them before. I just brush them down and keep it movin. (as you can probably tell already lol).

    EOS has the most amazing lip balms. I am obsessed with the egg shape! Haha.

    Sally Hansen makes some of the best nail products!

    I'm so sorry about your baby. :( I hope Sophie feels better soon. She's lost her companion. Poor thing. Doggies are so sweet and they all have their own emotions and personalities. It's funny at times. She'll get better eventually. I'm here for you sweety. <3

  8. We have similar taste! I use those Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Polishes and I love those EOS lip balms! I'm sorry to hear about your dog! I lost my dog in 2007, it's hard losing a pet. Try to remember the good memories you had with your dog :) That can help a lot.
