Mac, Bobbi Brown, and Laura Mercier are all great makeup brands, but ultimately quite expensive as well. Maybe you don’t have the money, or maybe you’re saving, whatever the reason, there are several less expensive options on the market. Here are 10 great products under $10 that can be found at most drugstores.
10. Oil Free Acne Stress Control Night Cleansing Pads:$6.39
These cleansing pads not only remove oil and makeup from your face, but they treat breakouts before they even emerge, not to mention, they’re perfect for night time when you don’t necessarily feel like getting up and washing your face.
9. Essence of Beauty Bamboo Brush Set:
The quality of Mac, and Sigma Brushes, but for a reasonable price. These eco-friendly brushes have silky soft bristles and are perfect for on-the-go.
8. Aveeno® Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion:
This lotion is like heaven in a bottle. The texture of the lotion is light, the scent is minimal, and it’s highly moisturizing without leaving you super greasy. It’s perfect for dry skin, and it helps with preventing sunburn.
7. L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Nail Color:
From ‘Greycian Goddess’ to ‘Pink Me Up!’ this nail polish has tons of colors. A drugstore nail polish that leaves you with a salon quality finish, A+!!!
6. Cover Girl Wet Slick Lipgloss Spritzers:
A product endorsed by Rihanna? Check. Moisturizing? Check. Amazing smell? Check. Under $10? Check. It gives a subtle color without being too much like a lipstick.
5. St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub:
A great exfoliating wash that buffs and polishes the skin. I was first introduced to this product when I was 12 and had mild acne. It’s leaves your face feeling refreshed, without being super harsh, and it smells amazing!
4. Maybelline Volum’Express Falsies Mascara:
A good quality mascara is a must in every makeup collection. This mascara lengthens and also thickens, which gives the appearance of false lashes, hence the name ‘falsies’.
3. Revlon Colorburst Lipstick:
The colors are vibrant, the application is buildable, and it leaves your lips moisturized. The ‘True Red’ is a perfect bold red that give the lips a nice pop of color.
2. Wet N’ Wild Eyeshadow:
These brand’s eyeshadow is magnificent. They’re super pigmented, easy to blend, and they have a variety of colors. A lot of the colors are considered a dupe for a lot of the MAC eyeshadows.
1. Sally Hansen Salon Effect Real Nail Polish Strips:
Most nail salons charge about $5 for two designs. With one pack of nail polish strips you can have a design on every finger for only $7.49. The designs range from cheetah print to a colorful camouflage.
