10 Beauty Picks Under $10
I had a really hard time picking out 10 products for this feature! Watch for a followup post in a few days (so many things were just over that $10 mark)

1. ELF Eye Shadow Brush $1
This is my stand by eye shadow brush. I admit that I own a ton of much more expensive brushes, but I seem to reach for this one over and over. I have about 6 of these!

2. ELF Studio Contour Brush $3
This is a great brush for the contour of my lid.

3. ELF Smudge Brush $1
I’ve been using this to smudge out the edge of my eye liner, it has just the right amount of stiffness to smudge the liner a bit but not so much that I move all of it, I still like to have a darker line right at my lash line.

4. Alba Botanica Acnedote Clean ‘n Treat Towelettes $5.99
I love that these towels clean, remove makeup, and they have 2% Salicylic Acid! The rare occasion that I just use a face towel, I swear I dream that I’m breaking out because I didn’t fully wash my face. With these I’m preventing that!

5. L’Oréal Paris Colour Caresse Shine Stain by Colour Riche $9.99
Have you seen my purse recently? I shared a peek at what was inside my makeup bag on August 14th (my birthday! Which I share with my girl crush, Mila Kunis!) and it was no coincidence that there 3 of these glossy stains in there. I want to buy the ones I don’t own, I want them all, they are amazing and yes… yes, I love them.

6. Nivea Raspberry Rosé Kiss $3.19
I’ve been carrying this tin around in my pocket for the last few weeks. The raspberry flavor is pretty amazing.

7. CoverGirl Flamed Out Mascara $6.49
I love the shape of this mascara wand, it seems to really help when flaring out the edges of my lashes. You can check out a before and after picture in my Flamed Out review.

8. JĀSÖN Vitamin E Oil 5,000 IU $6.39
Vitamin E seems to be coming up a lot in conversation lately. I’ve had my eye on this oil, it also has Almond, Apricot, Avocado, Sunflower and Wheat Germ. I’m picking some up the next time I’m at Whole Foods!

9. Avalon Organics Lavender Moisturizing Cream Shave $8.50
Mmmm…. Lavender. With a smooth shave.

10. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Super Slim Liner – Black $8.49
I love this liquid liner pen. The tip is super skinny, it is perfect for tightlining!

    I re-did this list so many times it wasn't even funny! So many great products now at the under $10 level. Nice list!

    The best thing about the elf brushes is that, if you are lazy, you can just keep buying them instead of washing them frequently!

    I can't believe I don't own any of these. I guess a shopping trip is in order. I love liquid liners so the L'Oreal will definitely get into a shopping cart.

    I see we have a few similar faves. I almost put Flamed Out Mascara as one of mine because I have been using it so much lately, but I do reach for Clump Crusher more. I'm looking for those elf brushes for sure!

    I NEED to try those Alba Botanica Acnedote Clean 'n Treat Towelettes!

    I liked the lip stains by L'oreal they reminded me of the YSL stains.

  7. August 27, 2013 / 11:21 pm

    OK, I NEED the Alba cloths. Seriously need them!

    I love those lip stains by L'Oreal, can't wait to get my hands on a couple more! Some great picks here 🙂

    I must get this L'Oreal liner and acne dote. Nice to have those cheap but best beauty products. Thanks! 🙂

    For some reason I have not tried the ELF brushes even though everyone loves them. I am going to have to do it real soon.
