Y’all know I love makeup. I mean, seriously. I especially when I can find items that I love for a very reasonable price! I’m all about beauty on a bargain, and I will absolutely use products that are from the drugstore, especially if they perform just as good as my high end brands.
Today I’ve compiled a list of my favorite beauty finds under five dollars!
|ELF CREAM LINER // TARGET BRAND CREASE BRUSH // WET ‘N WILD ‘SWEET AS CANDY’ EYESHADOW PALETTE // WET ‘N WILD ‘COMFORT ZONE’ EYESHADOW PALETTE // MAYBELLINE FALSIES MASCARA|
ELF CREAM LINER – I find this liner seriously comparable to MAC Fluidline. It stays put, goes on creamy, and doesn’t dry out. I have repurchased this multiple times and I will never go back to a high end gel eyeliner! However, the brush that comes with it is not great, so I suggest buying your own eyeliner brush for it.
TARGET BRAND CREASE BRUSH – This is an amazing quality crease brush, and I find it very comparable to my Sigma and MAC brushes. No lie.
WET ‘N WILD SWEET AS CANDY EYESHADOW PALETTE – I love these trios. This one is so neutral and fun to use, and I really like the light pink shade on my lid. Even though it’s pink, it still looks neutral and pretty!
WET ‘N WILD COMFORT ZONE EYESHADOW PALETTE – This is probably my favorite Wet ‘n Wild 6 shadow palette. It’s full of amazing colors, both neutral and not. I highly recommend this if you are wanting to experiment more with your shadows but not sure where to start!
MAYBELLINE VOLUM’ EXPRESS FALSIES MASCARA – This is one of my favorite drugstore mascaras. It provides a very “feathery” look that I love. Sometimes you can’t find this under $5 but I have seen it for that at Walmart (if you ever want to step into that lovely establishment).
|NYC BRONZER IN SUNNY // ELF GLOSSY GLOSS // RIMMEL STAY MATTE POWDER // WET ‘N WILD ‘MELLOW WINE’ BLUSH // EOS LIP BALM|
NYC BRONZER IN SUNNY – This is an amazing matte bronzer that blends very smoothly, and is great for pale-skinned girls. Not orange-y or glitter-y at all!
ELF GLOSSY GLOSS – I find this lipgloss to be super similar to MAC’s Lipglass. Extremely similar. They also have a great color selection online but it can be found at most Super Targets.
RIMMEL STAY MATTE POWDER – I am totally blown away by this powder. All of the amazing reviews I read/heard were true! Very finely milled, and I totally stay shine-free! Seriously, gals. Get you some! My only complaint is that it does kind of whiten you up a bit (I got the translucent one), so I have to contour/blush on top of it.
WET ‘N WILD MELLOW WINE BLUSH – Can you tell I love me some Wet ‘n Wild? I adore this blush. It is such a beautiful, natural color, even though it looks a little dark on the pan. Not disappointed at all!
EOS LIP BALM – This is seriously the best lip balm ever, and it lasts forever! I know many of you have tried it and love it, but I just can’t get enough. Plus they’re so cute and fun!
Obviously you will find these products for different prices depending on where you will go, but I have found each one of these for $5 or under. I also suggest checking out a drugstore such as CVS or Walgreens because they typically run a lot of beauty specials (buy one get one free) or offer various coupons. Walmart has consistently had really cheap prices, but there’s that whole having to go to Walmart thing, and a lot of times they seem to be out of what I’m looking for.
What are your beauty bargains? Do share! Of course I have to add it to my ever growing wish list!
