Frugal Friday – Top 10 UNDER $10 {beauty products!}

This week’s Frugal Friday is – My Top 10 under $10 in beauty!  I love reading the recommendations of others so thought I would jump on this bandwagon and share with you 10 of my favorites!


1. Real Techniques Brushes – Specifically the Expert Face Brush {$8.99} 

I love this brush for applying liquid foundation.  Its super soft and works wonders on buffing in foundation and leaving you with an almost airbrushed look if you do it right.  They are also durable, I’ve used and washed mine several times and have yet to lose any bristles!  *I recently received a 30% off coupon from Kohls which now sells these brushes online.  I’ve never seen them in stores but if you had a coupon and a Kohls MVC card you can score 30% off and free shipping making this brush $6.30!  Coupon lasts until Sunday August 18!  I have also seen these brushes on – however I bought my first from Ulta.

2. Biore Cleansers! – Acne Clearing Scrub {$5.47 @}

-Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser {$5.47 @}

These are hands down my favorite face scrub & cleanser.  The scrub has this citrus scent that wakes you up in the morning or is a nice bright scent to end your day with!  It does have some exfoliation and I’ve used it morning & night but heads up that if you scrub too hard you could rough up your skin.  The ice cleanser just leaves your  skin feeling cool & tingly when you use it.  Lately I use the ice cleanser day & night and the scrub a couple times a week since I’m not breaking out.


3. Covergirl Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation {$9.47 @}

I have fair skin – I use #810 Ivory in this and it is perfect!  It can cling to dry patches if you have any so be sure to moisturize before using it.  It has pretty great lasting power – I can get about 8hrs out of it with out a touch up.  I did wear it to an outdoor festival last weekend and despite my face being covered in sweat (thanks humidity!) it didn’t get too splotchy and required minimal touch up once I blotted my face.   It has medium coverage and I love to use with my Expert Face Brush mentioned above!

4. Maybelline The Rocket Mascara {$5.94 @}

I have several mascara’s that I like but this one seems to work about the best!  I use waterproof because I like the extra security of no flakes or smudges!

5. Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer in Radiant {$6.44 @}

I have tried high-end concealers to get rid of my blue tinted dark circles and this one continues to be my favorite, plus its a fraction of the price!

6. Wet ‘n Wild Eye Trios {$2.99 @}

I have a few of these trios and it amazes me at how pigmented they are despite being so inexpensive!  Heads up with the darker colors, start light and build up or you’ll have a mess on your hands before you know it!

7. ELF Bronzer in Golden {3.00 @}

I have tried several bronzers but this is my favorite with a subtle shimmer.  It adds a nice amount of warmth without making me look orange or muddy!

8. Sally Hansen Nail Color {1.99+ @}

This is my go-to drugstore brand of nail polish.  It lasts for a long time and the color choices are fantastic.

9. Maybelline Color Whispers {$5.94 @}

I have this in pink possibilities and its a lovely pink.  Not to bright but adds sheer color to your lips and you can’t even tell its there – which is something I love about it!

10. L’Oreal Colour Riche Eye Quads {$7.95 @}

I have two of these and love the flexibility of the colors!  They are pigmented and versatile.

      Thanks! 🙂 I love these posts – I’ve debated trying the telescopic but haven’t tried it. I do like the rocket and would totally recommend it!
