Make up is expensive! We know that. Whether your just getting in to make up or your just looking for some new products, it can be extremely over whelming and costly. So, I decided to share MY top ten inexpensive beauty products that are worth WAY more than they cost! Hopefully this will help you save some money! Let me know what some of YOUR favorite under 5$ finds are!!
1. E.L.F. Lip Balm $3
I saw a mini review on this product from a fellow YouTuber and she loved it so I had to give it a go. I am officially in LOVE. The product was WAY bigger than I thought it would be and it only cost $3.00! Its pigmented enough to look beautiful on your lips and comes in different varieties. This specific one is Mellow Melon.
You can get this item from eyeslipsface.com
2. Morphe Eyeshadow Pans $2 each:
I also found this product watching a video by LauraLee88 on YouTube. Once I visited the site, I HAD to buy something! The eyeshadow pans are only $2.00 each and the formula is high end material! As you can see from the swatches, they are REALLY pigmented and they blend out so nicely! They have names when you buy them on the site but after that they only come with a number (which is also on the site) so I put the # above the colors so they are easy to find! Their processing is a bit slow though, but once it ships it gets to you quickly! You can get these at Morphebrushes.com
3. KleanColor Eyes & Cheek Palette $1.00:
Now, this one even got me! KleanColor has some okay products and some serious MISS products! So, I obviously was pretty hesitant with this mini palette. I've gotten two other KleanColor palettes that I gave to my child because they sucked! This product, however, is pure GOLD. The formula on these shadows are exactly like my Urban Decay palette! They blend so well and are not chalky! The blush in them is so so but the eyeshadows are amazing. The fact that this palette is $1.00 just tops the cake! You can get this on ShopMissA.com. I'm pretty sure it also comes in a couple other colored palettes.
4. KleanColor Ms.Chick Blushes $1.00 :
Here is another KleanColor product worth WAY more than you pay! These are the Ms.Chick Blushes. They have so many different shades as well! They sell out fast, so you have to be quick! These three are in (from left to right) Tangerine, Petal, and Guava. I have four other ones as well but they wouldn't fit in the picture! They are BEYOND pigmented! I've seen countless videos where people name them as the most pigmented blush they own! You can have a bit of trouble blending these blushes with some shades, but if you use a light hand they are perfect! They only cost a dollar so there is no harm in buying them either! These are also on the ShopMissA.com site!
5. E.L.F. Shimmering Facial Whip $1.00 :
I use this product as a highlight. It is in the shade Lilac Petal. I also have it in Spotlight which is just a white highlight. These only cost $1.00 on the shopmissa.com site and as you can see, are really nice quality!! The Lilac Petal one has been said to be a dupe for a MAC highlighter! These also come in solid stick form!
6. NYC "Sunny" Bronzer $2.79 :
This product has gone around YouTube all summer! It is personally a "Holy Grail" item of mine! This is the NYC Bronzer in the shade 720A Sunny. So many people have said this product beats out MANY high end bronzers and I have to agree! It may not beat out Benefits Hoola bronzer but, it does beat out most! It doesn't leave you skin orange like most do and it blends out so great! Plus, it cost less than $3 so you can't beat it!! I think that some drug store companies don't realize how great their products really are, and lets hope they never do!!
7. E.L.F. Eyebrow Kit $3.00 :
Here's another "Holy Grail" of mine! The E.L.F. eyebrow kit is AMAZING ladies!! I have the Anastasia brow pencil and it doesn't even compare! I don't use the powder very much (it can actually be used as a great transition eyeshadow shade) but, the gel is top notch! I wont buy anything else because this works perfectly and only cost me $3!! I got mine in medium because i have dark colored eyebrows, but they come in three different shades. You can get this product on eyeslipsface.com.
8. Maybellines BabyLips $2.99 :
These amazing lip balms also became a huge fad this summer and I don't see them stopping any time soon! They are an amazing product that deserves the raves about them! They have all different collections with different shades. They have a smidge of tint to them that looks beautiful on the lips. They also have the Dr.Rescue ones that are medicated. I have six kinds but only showed my three favorites here. From left to right they are, 50 Soothing Sorbet, 30 Peach Kiss, and 95 Strike A Rose. They only cost $2.99 at Target. You have to have at least one in your collection!! A definite MUST HAVE product!!
9. NYC Liquid Liner $2.99 :
Now, if any of you have watched LauraLee88's videos on YouTube, you would know she SWEARS by this liquid liner, and with good reason! Its a great product! This liner is in the shade 887 Black and as you can see from the swatch, its really dark! It has a short applicator that makes making winged liner so effortless! It dries quickly and stays dark even after it has dried! The product is only $2.99 and you can find it at most drug stores. If your looking for a good liquid liner, this is your product!!
10. NYX Butter Glosses $4.99 :
Heres another lip fad for you and with good reason! These are the NYX Butter Glosses!! These are, HANDS DOWN, the BEST lipglosses I have personally ever used! They are NOT sticky at all and go so perfect over a lipstick OR alone! They also have the cutest dessert names. I have five in my collection (there are a ton more) but I only showed my two favorites so far here. From left to right they are, Eclair and Strawberry Parfait! They are pigmented, non-sticky, they last on your lips, they ARE PERFECT! If you don't have any, stop whatever your doing, and go to Target! These hit the mark at $4.99 a piece!
