Five Favorite Products Under $10

Five Favorite Products Under $10

In a world of binge watching Youtube makeup tutorials/reviews, and Kylie Jenner shoving her $29 lip-kit down our throats on Instagram all day, it's HARD for a girl to contain herself. It can leave you running out to Sephora to drop at least $100 on the latest beauty products. There is literally an entire genre of videos on Youtube called 'Youtube Made Me Buy It'. I ain't gonna lie to y'all, I definitely do not have enough self control in Sephora or at a Nordstrom counter quite yet. The first step is admitting you have a problem, and I am working on it..

But if you just let Jesus take the wheel, and have him drive your behind to a drugstore or Target, you will save yourself from spending copious amounts of moolah. Affordable brands we all know like Maybelline and Covergirl are seriously stepping up their game. I'm noticing improvements in quality, staying power, shade selection, and formulation. 

I've put together a list of my favorite products that cost less than $10. They are not listed in any particular order. Here we go!

Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation

This lightweight foundation is oil-free and gives the skin a naturally flawless finish.  It gives me a radiant glow, which is super trendy at the moment. I usually apply it with my fingers or a brush! The open/close pump and plastic cap are the cherry on top, especially when so many higher end brands do not provide a pump for quite expensive foundations. 

Real Techniques Brushes

This makeup brush collection was launched in 2011 by old school Youtube beauty gurus Samantha and Nicola Chapman. They're British, professional makeup artists, and have been uploading some of the best quality tutorials on Youtube since 2007. I remember watching them in high school! I have a couple of their brushes, and they are unebelieveable quality for the price. All made of synthetic hairs, they blend makeup easily, never streaky. Hairs don't fall out, and they're easy to clean. Boom.

Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara

One products, many uses.

  • Comb through brows to tame. Wear alone or over filled in brows. 
  • Worn on lashes for those minimal makeup days.
  • Perfect for bottom lashes. You'll never get a dark smudged line at the end of the day like you may with black mascara. 
  • Tame flyaways!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

4 different formulas, and 82 shades. This classic lipstick is creamy, moisturizing, and has great color payoff. And I love the chic black and gold tube. In a pinch, you could swipe it across your cheeks for a quick blush, or even a shimmery one over the eyes.

Aria Starr 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil

I bought this oil on Amazon for $9.95. If you have not heard about the blessings of oils, get yourself a bottle of this. Argan oil, and many other plant based oils, are incredibly versatile. Have dry hair? Argan oil. Ashy legs? Argan oil. Gross cuticles? Argan oil. Wrinkles? Argan oil. Yo man actin up? Argan oil. Bad credit? Argan oil. 

Class dismissed.
