17+ Game Changing Beauty Products That You Can Buy For Under $10

As someone who thoroughly enjoys beating their face with makeup on the reg, I know first-hand how expensive it can be to keep up with makeup trends and replenish your products.

You'd be surprised how easy it is to spend half a pay-check on three items at Sephora. It's scary, honestly.

So, consider this list your makeup budget cheat sheet. A list of products that you can skimp on, that will still leave you looking fly as hell.

Pro Orange Beauty Sponge Makeup Blender.

You've probably walked into Sephora before, and seen a bright pink Beauty Blender, no larger than your big toe, for close to $30.

While that one works pretty damn well, this one is easily comparable, for a fraction of the price.

NYX Studio Perfect Primer.

Almost anything NYX is guaranteed to be amazing for the cost.

This primer can easily compete with higher end primers like, Smashbox, or Benefit. Except this one won't break your bank.

It's lightweight, pore refining, non-greasy, and less than $7.

This eyeliner does not move. It's honestly comparable to Kat Von D's tattoo liner.

Like I said, everything NYX has to offer is an incredible value for the price. I highly recommend this liner to anyone that doesn't want to spend an arm and a leg just to avoid smudging.

Maybelline Makeup Instant Age Rewind Concealer.

This concealer is excellent, and can be found at most drugstores. Plus, it comes with a built in sponge that spreads the it flawlessly onto your skin.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Contour Palette.

e.l.f Cosmetics is a really solid makeup line for the price, and it's easy to use for beginners.

You also don't need to search far and wide for their products, because they more than likely sell them at your local Walmart.

Ardelle Professional Flase Lashes.

Ardelle lashes are a personal favorite of mine.

They come in a ton of different quantities, and styles.

So whether you're looking for a subtle, natural look, or something more glam, they've got you covered.

Burt's Bees 100% Natural Tinted Lip Balm.

Who doesn't love an all-natural, cruelty-free product?

It's the Burt's Bees lip balm we all know in love, but with a buildable tint.

Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder.

Translucent powder is an absolute must in your makeup bag, but the good news is, you don't need to feel pressured to spend $40 on one.

This one, as far as I'm concerned, is the holy grail of setting powders, and it's less than $6!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe Herbs and Rosewater.

Instagram | @goodandfreshskincare

This product is a go-to of mine. It has so many benefits, I don't even know where to start.

If you spray it on your bare face, it refreshes, tones, hydrates, and leaves your skin looking bright and healthy.

If you spray it on top of your makeup, it instantly refreshes your look, and gives your face a dewier finish.

Simple Kind to Skin Facial Care Foaming Cleanser.

YouTube | Stephanie Anne

The name of this product says it all. It's a simple, reliable, and economic foam cleanser that's great on those with sensitive skin.

It removes makeup, and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean.

Italia Deluxe Ultra Fine Lip Liner 12 Color Set.

YouTube | Raashi Thakar

12 of just about anything for less than $10 is a win in my books.

But these lip liners are more than just an abundant quantity for the price, the quality is shockingly great as well!

e.l.f Cosmetics Eyelid Primer.

Instagram | @myhapis_urcute

Eyelid primer is generally something you don't ever need to splurge on. But this one in particular works great, and it's only $2.

You can't go wrong.

wet n wild Megaglo Highlighting Palette.

YouTube | Liorasmakeuploves52

Highlighters are an important product to help finish your look, give you a shimmery, dewy finish, and add dimension to your face.

This highlighter is great, because it comes in a grid of four different shades.

So, depending on the look you're trying to achieve, you have more than just one color option!

Sephora Cleansing Wipes.


These are by far, the greatest makeup removing wipes I've ever tried.

The travel sized packs are only $4 each, so if you wanted to, you could try every scent, and reap all the benefits.

Shadow Shields by Michelle Villanueva.

YouTube | Denitslava Makeup

If you're a beauty guru, you already know these things work wonders.

Putting on eyeshadow can get messy, and excess shadow can accidentally end up on your cheek bones.

But stick these under your eyes before applying, and you'll end up with a much cleaner, more precise look.

e.l.f Cosmetics Camo Concealer.

This concealer is a definite game changer.

It gives amazing coverage, has the perfect consistency, comes in 18 shades, and only costs $5.

What a steal!

Real Techniques makeup brushes.

Good makeup brushes are almost always incredibly overpriced.

Real Techniques are one of very few brands that offer quality makeup brushes that don't shed all over your face for a reasonable price.

NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray.

Instagram | @fadhass

For those of you who have oily skin, and like to maintain the matte look, I cannot recommend this product enough!

Spray this onto your face after you've finished your makeup, and you'll be looking shine-free all day long.

Rimmel Waterproof Natural Bronzer.

I've been using this bronzer for the last 10 years, and it has never let me down.

It can be used to contour, or simply to add a touch of bronze to your look. On top of that, it's waterproof, and it comes in matte or shimmery.

NYX Lip Lingerie.

Instagram | @titilayoabiwon

This lipstick is amazing, comes in 24 different shades, has a matte finish, and most importantly, stays on.

It's no wonder that this is one of NYX's bestsellers!

Sephora Collection: Lip Balm & Scrub.

Instagram | @savinanikolova_

This lip balm is a lifesaver.

For $8, you can exfoliate and hydrate your lips, while leaving them smelling fruity and fresh.

Hint: the watermelon and banana ones are the best!

L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara.

Instagram | @eveandboy

As far as drugstore mascara's go, this one is at the top of my list!

If you're not into wearing false lashes, this mascara will transform your natural lashes, leaving them looking bolder, more voluminous, and longer.

e.l.f Cosmetics Eyebrow Duo Brush.

This one is a no-brainer.

Why have two separate brushes for your eyebrows, when you can have one, and for only $3.

This brush is the logical choice if you're looking to take your brows to the next level.

You can thank me later.

Swap your overpriced, high-end, boujee makeup products for these ones.

They work just as well, and you and your bank account will be glad you did!
