Top Ten Beauty Products Under $10

     The criteria for this post requires that the products be under $10, easily accessible to some extent, and products that I've actually tried. I thought about including some products that I've heard raved about over and over again, but I wanted to be sure that the information I am giving you is 100% Elaina Smith approved. I also tried to pick a variety of products so that it wouldn't get too repetitive (there are a lot of good lipsticks, guys!).


- Wet n' Wild eye shadow palette in Comfort Zone $4.99 I speak for all Wet n' Wild shadows on this post, but this specific palette is my favorite. The colors are super pigmented, long lasting, and won't crease. There can be some fallout, but they are by far my favorite in terms of drugstore options.
- Cover Girl AquaSmooth Foundation $8.99 This foundation is thicker than most so it provides an absolutely flawless finish. I think I stopped buying these because I would go through them so quickly, but I definitely plan to pick one up before school starts again.
- Revlon Cremé Lipsticks $6.99 One of the reasons these lipsticks are so famous is because of the crazy amount of colors there is to choose from. Unlike most drugstore brands, they also offer lipsticks in different finishes, such as frost, pearl, matte, or cremé. My favorites are the cremé. They don't dry out my lips, and the color payoff is phenomenal. 
- E.l.f. Shimmering Facial Whip in Pink Lemonade $1 I love using this as a highlight but also as an eye shadow base. The color offers a nice shimmer without being sparkly, and it's a very nice consistency to work with. However, I wouldn't use these as an eyeshadow alone, because they will crease even with primer applied underneath.
- Almay Liquid Eyeliner $6.44 This eyeliner is my go to. It makes cat eyes/the winged eyeliner look very easy to do. It doesn't smear or fade throughout the day, and it won't dry out your skin either. 
- Ardell Eyelashes $2.99+ We're not sure what makes them better than the other false eyelashes in this price range, they just are. 
- Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer $6.44 I have very dry skin around my eyes, so I've always avoided using under eye concealer, but this seems to do the trick when I'm feeling fancier than usual. It doesn't dry out my skin, and it's also a pretty good highlighter. 
- NYX Mega Shine Lip Glosses $5 These lipglosses offer crazy pigmentation. If you're not a huge fan of lipstick, but still looking for crazy color, check these out! 
- Revlon Photo Ready BB Cream $8.99 This is my preferred BB cream. It has a better coverage than most, but it also doesn't make my skin as greasy as some of the other ones I have tried. It includes an SPF of 30 and also promises skin rejuvenation!
- Hard Candy Sheer Envy Illuminating Primer $8 I use this primer before putting on foundation and especially when my face is dry. It creates a nice base while also giving you a dewy glow.


Disagree with my list? Thought of some products I left out? Let me know in the comments! 


  1. This is so very helpful! :) I struggle often with finding beauty products at a cheap price, especially when it comes to makeup. Those can rack up on price very quickly.
    Thank you so much! :)
