You know I'm a big fan of drugstore beauty products. I haven't always felt that way. I used to like just a few things here and there, but over the last five years or so the mass beauty brands have really improved on the quality across the board. I use quite a few drugstore (or mass) beauty products in my daily beauty routine and I definitely have my favorites. Trying to find my favorites under $10 was a bit challenging, though, as many of the drugstore products I use are over the $10 mark (I guess with quality comes price). I did narrow it down and have picked my top 10 beauty products under $10.
1. COVERGIRL Clump Crusher Mascara - $7.99
Picking just one mascara was hard, so I actually didn't - HA! No matter how many different mascaras I use and layer on, I am almost always using Clump Crusher as one of them. See my complete review here: Clump Crusher Mascara Review. (Boy my lashes were wimpy there and I've been using lash growth conditioners since and really need to do another review with updated photos.) Buy it from your favorite drugstore like Walgreens, CVS, drugstore.com or mass retailer like Target.
2. AVEENO Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion - $6.99
I love this lotion for everyday when my skin isn't super dry. It sinks into my skin really quick and leaves it velvety soft. I am SO picky about my lotion and so glad that I found one that I really love. And I love that it's easy on the wallet too. Buy it from Target, Walgreens, drugstore.com, amazon.com.
3. Simple Micellar Make-Up Remover Wipes - $6.99
I've used a lot of makeup removing wipes and these are my latest fave. One wipe completely removes every trace of makeup really fast. It does it with a blend of vitamin charged micellar water so skin is left feeling really fresh with no residue. Buy it from Target or Amazon.
4. e.l.f. Smudge Brush - $1.00
I use this Smudge Brush every single day but not in the way that it was meant. I use the e.l.f. Smudge Brush to apply my shadow as an eyeliner on my lower lash line and then gently smudge it out to soften it a bit. It is stiff enough yet soft enough to get the job done. I buy five at a time and they last me most of the year. Buy it from Target, CVS or Walgreens.
5. NYC Sun 'n' Bronze Bronzing Powder - $4.99
This bronzing compact makes a fast face easy. It contains five strips of varied shades of bronze that blend together for a really pretty custom shade. I use Hamptons Radiance that is more like a bronzer/blush/highlighter all-in-one. Buy it from Target, CVS or Amazon.
6. L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara - $5.99
For really dramatic lashes, I use Voluminous and I have depended on this drugstore mascara for years. It simply makes my lashes really long and thick. No matter how many variations that brand makes of it, I still think the original is the very best. Buy it from Target, Walgreens or drugstore.com.
7. Suave Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Weightless Blow Dry Spray - $4.99
I use this volumizing spray every time I wash my hair right before blow-drying. I swear it adds a ton of volume to my hair and makes styling easier overall. It also makes my style hold and last longer. It's one of my regular styling products that I swear I came out of the salon. Buy it from Target or CVS.
8. TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Ultra-Brushable Hairspray - $4.99
I love this hairspray and actually threw away my almost $20 can after I tried it and never looked back! This hairspray holds my hair in place without looking stiff yet it brushes out and lets me re-style my hair in between washing. Buy it from Target, Walgreens or drugstore.com.
9. Nivea Lip Butter - $3.79
I use this nourishing lip butter most nights before I go to bed to keeps my lips super soft and nourished. My favorite flavor is Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss. Buy it from Walgreens, Target, drugstore.com or Amazon.com.
10. Dove Dry Shampoo - $4.99
I go through a lot of Dry Shampoo and always keep this one on hand. It adds a lot of volume to my hair, gets rid of second and third hair day smell plus adds a ton of volume to my hair. Buy it from Walgreens, CVS or drugstore.com.
