Ever since the oh so popular post on Drugstore Dupes, I have been getting a ton of requests to do more posts about beauty products for people (like me!) who would rather get an awesome deal than splurge on high-end cosmetics. I'm so glad that you guys love these budget beauty posts, because I love sharing all of these amazing deals with you! Read on to score some more bargains on my favorite beauty products that are under $10!
I've discovered a lot of my all-time favorite affordable products by subscribing to Birchbox. It's $10 for makeup box filled with a personalized mix of full-size and sample products from some seriously amazing brands!

I have really patchy, sparse eyebrows and for awhile I was going through brow kit after brow kit desperately trying to find one that would actually last all day and look natural. Then one day I was browsing through my second home, Target, when I saw this little guy for about $4. I figured I might as well give it a try, and boy am I glad that I did. The powder is a super natural color (not orange-y like some powders) and it lasts all day. Plus, the gel is really great for slicking down those stubborn hairs that won't stay put.
If you've seen basically any of my other posts, you'd know how much I absolutely rave about almost everything e.l.f. cosmetics. And this product in particular is one of my absolute faves. The mineral shadows are super high quality (they rival some of the priciest and well-known brands out there!), and the color selection is amazing. When I first tried these out, I got about 10 colors. After trying them all and seeing which I got the most use out of, I generally stick with repurchasing Elegant, Celebrity, and Golden.
This classic mascara seriously never goes out of style. I keep trying out new ones, but I always gravitate back to my Great Lash.
I absolutely love these lip butters because they have the semi-sheer color payoff of a lip gloss but with a matte (not sticky!) finish. There is a huge variety of colors and they are all gorgeous, but my favorite has to be Strawberry Shortcake. It's a perfect everyday shade of pink.
Okay, I know the color I have pictured below looks really bright, but I promise they aren't all that extreme. In fact, my favorite color in this line is Bad to the Bronze which is a really pretty shade of brown. The main reason why I love these so much is because they really do last all day without any creasing or smearing. In a pinch, these also work great as an eyeshadow primer because they keep any other eye products on all day as well.
So as I'm sure most of you guys know by now, I have really oily skin. If I forget to put on a matte setting powder like this one I will literally be a complete greaseball by the end of the day. I also really like Dream Matte because I can continue to apply it as needed throughout the day without it ever getting cakey and unnatural looking.
Nyx Powder Blush- $6
These blushes are incredibly smooth and leave a super natural looking flush to your skin. And it doesn't hurt that almost all the colors I've tried are gorgeous. However, my two favorites would have to be Summer Peach and Pinched.
I know, I know...more Maybelline. They just have so many awesome products I couldn't help but include all of my favorites! Besides the really cute packaging, this lip balm is also really hydrating and smells amazing.
These nail polishes come in an insanely huge (and pretty!) variety of colors. Not to mention, they have some pretty crazy staying power as well. I set a personal record when I was able to keep a coat of this polish on for about a week with absolutely no chipping.
I just had to save the cheapest product for the grande finale! I use this eyeliner pen instead of a traditional liquid liner when I want to go for a more dramatic winged effect. With a little primer the liner will last all day and the colors are all really beautiful. The only downside is if you leave the cap even slightly loose, these guys will dry out and become completely unusable within hours. So if you're always in a rush in the morning like me, make sure you at least take the time to make sure the cap is on tight!
