It’s not necessary to spend a fortune to feel like a million bucks. Although having a million bucks to buy makeup would totally rock. But, you don’t have to empty your bank account every time you need a new mascara or blush. If you know what to buy, you can get amazing make-up for cheap. Here are five great beauty products you can buy for less than ten dollars.
1. Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara
If you want unreal volume for your lashes, you can do worse than Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara. For only $6.39 you can get long, full lashes without unsightly clumps. You would look just as if you spent $30 on a tube, for a fraction of that.
2. ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer
Primer feels like one of those products you go high end or go home for. But that’s luckily a myth. ELF products are usually great quality for their price, but their Mineral Eyeshadow Primer will absolutely surprise you. You can get it for $5.19 on eBay and, if you are lucky, as low as $1 on Target. With a creamy, light, non-sticky texture, this primer dries quickly and will definitely prolong the wear of your eyeshadow.
3. Wet n Wild matte Lipstick
I know, drugstore lipsticks, not the best option around. But these babies might be worth the purchase. And at $1.99, it is worth the try. Even though they are extremely cheap in price, Wet n Wild Matte Lipsticks have a creamy texture and are heavily pigmented. Your lips will look the same color as you see in the tube, unlike other cheap sticks. They are long lasting, but they are not kissing proof, though.
4. Revlon Colorburst Balm stain
If you truly want an eat, drink and kiss-proof color on your lips, then you need a stain. And for $6.89 you can take home the Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain. You can choose from 17 different colors in refreshing minty flavor. This product will not dry out your lips as much as other stains, but if you have dry skin, you might want to steer clear because of the menthol, though.
5. Sinful Colors Professional Nail Enamel
You can’t forget about your fingers and toes, but finding the perfect polish that is cheap, will not smudge and has good coverage is more difficult than finding the Holy Grail. Or not. Sinful Colors has this product for $1.99. You can choose from a lot of bright colors that will cover your nails consistently, you’ll probably need only two layers. It dries to a glossy finish even without a top coat and, best of all, it dries super fast. Seriously smudge-proof.
