Let’s talk beauty. Specifically, some of my favorite beauty products that are not only go-tos, they’re also affordable! I’ve put together a list of 10 beauty favorites that are all $10 and under! These are products I actually use, most of them daily!
10 Beauty Favorites $10 and Under

1. It Cosmetics Hello Lashes Clinically Shown 5-in-1 Mascara Mini ($10)
While the full-size version of this mascara will run your over $20, you can grab a mini or travel size for just $10! I actually prefer to buy mini or travel size mascaras as I think full-size mascaras tend to dry up a before you can use them all anyway! I was given this mascara to try out when I visited Ulta Beauty one day and I fell in love! You can layer and layer it to get the look you like without it clumping or getting spider-y and it washes off easily!
2. Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss Crayons ($8.99)
I’ve been a fan of Burt’s Bees lip crayons for a while and when I saw they had launched a gloss crayon I had to try it out! Turns out I love it! The coverage is great and long-wearing and it feels smooth and silky on while giving you a glossy finish that’s not sticky at all. The shade I’ve been wearing lately is Pacific Coast.
3. e.l.f. Kabuki brush ($5.99)
This is a great blending brush and what I use to apply my Mineral Pearls (see No. 10!)
4. L’Oreal® Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow ($4.99-$5.99)
I really love these eyeshadows! They’re so rich and easy to wear. I don’t even have a favorite shade – I usually stick to the browns and purples but there are so many gorgeous colors to choose from!
5. L’Oreal® Paris Infallible Black Velvet ($8,99)
All the deep rich coverage of a liquid liner without the tricky application! This has a felt-like tip end and it glides on like a marker. You can use the tip to make a thin line or turn it to make a bolder statement. I usually go with a thin line and immediately use a smudge brush to blend it. I love this thing and will be buying another once it dries out!
6. Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes ($6.99-$7,99)
Pregnancy has definitely made me a little lazier (let’s just blame it on exhaustion) and I’ve been leaving these wipes on my bedside table so I can easily remove my makeup once I’ve climbed into bed. I’m a fan!
7. e.l.f. Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer ($1.99)
One of my favorite products ever, I use this daily and can’t say enough good things about it! (It’s even earned it’s own blog posts on here and on Splendry!) It makes your eyeshadow richer and long-wearing and prevents mascara smudges on your eyelids. I love, love, LOVE this!
8. Maybelline Cover Stick Green Concealer ($5.99)
Another product that’s earned it’s own post? This green concealer! Perfect for camouflaging redness, I reach for this if I’m experiencing any skin irritations, blemishes, or just around the edges of my nostrils where I have some broken capillaries.
9. Johnson’s Baby No-More-Tears Shampoo ($4.99)
No, I’m not putting it in my hair, I use it to clean my makeup brushes! You can see how I do it here. It doesn’t have to be this particular brand, I just like using a gentle shampoo!
10. e.l.f. Cosmetics Mineral Pearls ($8.00)
Another daily use product (and another that’s earned it’s own blog post review!), this gives me the perfect amount of natural color and this is even my go-to product if I’m in a hurry and don’t use any other makeup.
OK, you’ve seen my top $10 that are $10 and under, now, tell me yours!
