A few weeks ago, Jaelan from Making Mrs. M shared a post about the best products for under $10, and I thought it was such a fabulous idea!
A lot of people tell me they don’t like to spend a ton of money on makeup. Luckily, you don’t have to! Amazon, Ulta, or your local drugstore are all great resources for inexpensive products.
Here are my favorites:
Brush Egg : Cleaning your makeup brushes is a task. This cute little tool makes the process easier and more thorough! It helps eradicate stubborn product buildup. It’s great for brushes but do NOT use this on your Beauty Blender: I made that mistake this weekend and shredded mine. 🙁
Real Techniques Stipling Brush: I use this to create a flawless finish with my setting powder. It holds product really well!
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge: this is the best (and cheapest) alternative to the Beauty Blender. I’ve had it for over a year, use it nearly every day, and continue to be pleased!
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Cherry Skies and Pink Lust: I can honestly say I’ve never had a lipstick last longer than this product. Not everyone feels the same way I do about it, but, it’s easy to apply and doesn’t dry out my lips. The pigmentation is beautiful.
NYX Slim Lip Pencils: In my opinion, there’s no need to spend a lot on lip liner, even if you wear high-end lipstick. NYX liners come in an array of colors and keep lipstick from feathering.
NYX Cosmetics Ombre Blush in Sweet Spring: two beautiful pink shades rolled into one. This has been my every day blush for the past few months!
NYX Cosmetics Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner: the only liner I wear. It doesn’t budge. I’ve tried others, but $5.99 is hard to beat!
NYX Cosmetics Control Freak Eyebrow Gel: this clear formula tames my wild brows without making them hard. I prefer this to the Anastasia Beverly Hill’s product, and it’s only 5.99!
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer: another product that causes much debate. This is my favorite concealer. I recently purchased Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage but prefer this $9 product. I even use it on blemishes.
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara: the only mascara I wear. My makeup bag is never without it! I’ve tried several high-end brands, but this is my forever go-to.
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Stick: I love Maybelline’s “Fit Me” line, but prefer this easy-to-use stick, especially when I need coverage in a hurry. It’s the perfect product for days when you only have 10 minutes to get out the door.
I truthfully use the above products weekly, and some daily! The quality rivals that of high-end products.
