25 Favorite Beauty Items Under $25

25 Favorite beauty products under 25 - JK Style

25 favorite beauty products under $25- JK Style

  1. L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss – I love these rich, creamy glosses. The color is long-lasting, they’ve got lots of shades to pick from (I own several of theses!), and they’re around $8!
  2. Smudge Brush – This is great for fast eyeliner application!
  3. Tony Moly The Chok Chok Watery Cream– I use this green tea extract cream as the last step in my skin care routine! It’s right at $25, so it barely made this list!
  4. Goody Ouchless Hair Elastics – Santa puts these in my stocking every year, which is great, because it usually takes me about a year to lose them all! (I’m convinced they’re off living a great life with all my bobby pins somewhere.)
  5. L’Oréal’s Colour Riche Eyeshadow – I love, love these eyeshadows. They’re creamy with a powder finish and they have some gorgeous shades! The Cafe Au Lait, Paris Beach, and Quartz Fume are go-tos (base, highlighter and crease) and the Noir C’est Noir (black shade) I love to use a liner (see item # 17!)
  6. Pacifica Stress Rehab Mask – LOVED this mask so much, I’ve written about it before!
  7. e.l.f. Shine Eraser Blotting Papers – Perfect to control shine and just $1!
  8. Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof – I’ve got this in the shade Flirting Game, a shimmery taupe color and I love it as a lower liner.
  9. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Wipes – These are my go-to, especially when I’m too exhausted to head to the sink to wash my face!
  10. Sonoma Spa Ocean Spa Bubble Bath – I love bubble baths but take enough of them that I hate going through expensive bubble bath. (And I refuse to cut down on baths!) I found this 64 oz. jug at Walmart for less than $3! They’ve got some other good scents too!
  11. Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons – I LOVE these things. They go on like a lipstick but are creamy and really long-lasting! I’ve always got one or two of these on me!
  12. Lush Bubble Bar in Brightside – Like I said, I really like bubble baths! This bar smells AMAZING (mandarin and tangerine) and I break it up (just leave it in the paper bag they give you and break!) so I get five or six big chunks out of it.
  13. Mary Kay Lash Intensity Mascara – Speaking of, I need to order more of this! Still my favorite mascara I’ve tried in a long time! (You can see my full review here) Incredible mascara for under $20?? You can’t beat that!
  14. e.l.f. Shadow Lock Primer – I use this without fail. My shadow lasts all day with no creases and this primer will only set you back $2!
  15. L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Contour Palette – Even if you’re not into contouring, grab this palette just for the non-bronzy contour shade! I use this pretty much daily and will continue to buy it! You can read a little more about it here.
  16. Sally Hanson Airbrush Legs – You might remember my post about this incredible product (if not, check it out here) but I’m still a fan!
  17. Sephora Collection Pro Angled Liner Brush #22 – Perfect for precise liner and smoothing pencil liner, I also use this when I want to apply an eyeshadow as a liner (gives you a great, smooth look! – See item # 5)
  18. L’oreal Lash Paradise Mascara– Another mascara I love, this Lash Paradise mascara gives me the full-lash look I love!
  19. Maybelline Coverstick Correction Concealer – You can read more about my reasons for using green concealer here, but this is the actual product I prefer.
  20. Burt’s Bees Renewal Firming Day Lotion – This is my go-to daily moisturizer. It gives me lightweight coverage and sun protection (spf 30)
  21. Goody QuickStyle Brush – This really does cut down on my dry time!
  22. Ciaté Mani Markers – You might have caught my review for this already, but just know I’m going to keep talking these markers, because I love them!
  23. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil – My favorite brow pencil! (I use the taupe shade.)
  24. Slice Slanted Soft-Touch Tweezers – Comfortable to use and great for precision tweezing, this my favorite pair of tweezers I’ve owned.
  25. e.l.f. Kabuki Brush – I use this daily for blending my blush/bronzer/etc. and it’s fantastic. (And just $6!)
Anything you think I left off the list? Tell me!
