Top 10 Beauty Items for Under $10

Make up and beauty products can be a girl’s best friend. This can also be a love-hate relationship since it can cost us a fortune if we want the really high-end stuff. Did you know that one tube of lipstick can range anywhere from one dollar to over one hundred dollars? That can get really expensive when you want the whole kit and caboodle. We want to help you out a little in the beauty department, so we searched high and low to find the top ten beauty products for under ten dollars. You can thank us later, but for now, read on to discover what they are.

#4 Lush Deodorant Powder

The Greeench Deodorant Powder is made with only the best herbs and powders and is one of the best deodorants Lush has ever put on the market. This deodorant has rosemary, thyme, and tea tree, all of which are super powerful to ward off any unwanted underarm odor. It is blended into a lovely moisture absorbing mixture which creates a microfine powder. At only $7.95 a pop this is a must buy!

#5 rimmel london BB cream

Instead of using a heavy foundation you might want to try Rimmel’s 9-in-1 skin perfecting BB cream . This BB cream will prime, moisturize, minimize pores, conceal, cover, smooth, brighten and help protect your skin. It’s better to find a BB cream that can do all of this in one, than spend unnecessary money on a variety of different products.

Almay offers an intense color shimmer kit that comes in 4 different pallets. Each pallet is custom designed according to eye color, so they have something to offer everyone. For $7.00 per pallet you absolutely can not go wrong. This eyeshadow glides on like the expensive stuff, and will last just as long. It also allows you to create a mistake-free look that your friends will think you had professionally done. You’ll want to keep this one a secret.

We’ve tested many different types of mascara that are currently on the market, and this is our absolute favorite. This is Rimmel’s first broken heart-shaped brush that creates those Rockin’ Curves. This mascara comes in three shades of black and will make your lashes pop. You can have lashes that are plump and lifted in one swift stroke! This mascara retails for $5.95, making it easy to splurge and buy a couple.

#8 ELF Bronzer/Blush Duo

We are super excited about this one. Who doesn’t love a blush and bronze duo? ELF cosmetics is making some truly amazing makeup at very low prices. The blush and bronzer are both highly pigmented and have the most subtle shimmer to them, making them very wearable all day long. This duo is comparable to the NARS duo, and won’t make you think twice about spending a measly $3.00 on it.
