If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I am a budget beauty lover. I do love splurging sometimes but if I can find amazing quality products for an affordable price then there is nothing better than that. I have decided to make this a series on my blog to share my Top 3 favourite products all for under £5! Now that we're in the middle of a cost-of-living crisis I couldn't think of a better time to start sharing my favourite budge beauty products. In today's post ill be sharing with you my Top 3 for Under £5 Powder Blushes.

Natural Collection Blush - Rose Blush £1.99

I have been using Natural Collection on and off since I was a teenager, a lot of their products aren't my favourite like their foundations but their powder blush is one of the best affordable blushes that I've tried. I have tested out a lot of cheaper blushes and a lot of them either don't have good colour pay off and when you apply it to the skin it looks like you don't have anything on or they are very powdery and have way too much pigmentation but this blush fits perfectly in the middle. It isn't powdery at all, you only need to dip your brush in slightly and you get a good amount of product on the brush and it also has a really nice pigmentation. It isn't too much or too light, you only need a light to dust the blush onto the cheeks to give a gorgeous flush of colour. I have the shade Rose Blush which is a gorgeous mauvy pink which suits my skin tone perfectly but there are also a lot of different shades to choose from so you can find the perfect one to fit you! 

MUA Blushed Matte Blush Powder - Tea Rose £3

Out of the other blushes on this list, this one is the most expensive but for it still only being £3 I wouldn't say that it would break the bank. MUA is a brand that you can always count on, I have tried so many different products from the brand and have loved the majority of them but one of my favourite items from the brand are their blushes both powder and cream (look out for my next 3 under £5 post for cream blush) because of their amazing quality for such an affordable price. Firstly how cute is the packaging, I love when brands add a little something to their products and the flower print on this blush adds a nice little touch. The blush itself is lovely, you wouldn't think that you have only paid £3 for this blush because of how good the quality is, once applied to the skin it looks buttery smooth and doesn't show up the texture of the skin. This blush is pretty pigmented so you only need a small amount to create a gorgeous blush look, this blush also has different shades ranging from a bright redo a coral shade to suit all different skin tones. 

PS… Beauty High Pigment Blusher - True Peach £1.50 

This is the most affordable blush on this list and not surprisingly it is from Primark. I am definitely a Primark makeup fan, I have used a number of these products and have been really impressed with the quality especially since they are so affordable with most if their makeup being under £5! That is why I and to add this blush to the list. Eventhough this blush is very cheap you wouldn't know when using it, you only need to swirl your brush into the product a few times to get the perfect amount of blush that looks pigmented on the cheeks. In Primark, they have matte and shimmer versions of this blush but the matte ones are my favourite because the shimmer shades can look a little glittery but if you like that look they would be perfect for you. The only issue with this blush isn't actually a problem with the product itself it's with gne beauty section in Primark, you probably one be able to find these blushes in every Primark but is you do make sure to give them a try and for only £1.50 you really can't do wrong! 

Makeup doesn't need to be expensive for it to be good quality and I think I have definitely proved that today with these amazing picks for my first instalment of my Top 3 Under £5 series. Have you tired any of these blushes before?
