Favorite Makeup Products Under $10 Dollars (Part #1)

Favorite Makeup Products Under 10

Today you should be EXTREMELY jealous of me.
Why you ask?
As you’re probably reading this – I will be sitting in the dental chair having a lovely
root canal that I’ve been looking forward to for oh so long!
…sense the sarcasm?…I digress…

I’d like to share with you some of my top favorite makeup products under $10 dollars.
Some of these products can be found at your local drug store, while others can be found online so I’ll be sure to link those up for you!


Milani Cosmetics Conceal and Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer


Price – $9.99 in most drugstores
(CVS is the only local store to carry Milani around here currently)

This foundation provides the perfect amount of coverage that you can truly get away with just using this and not using any kind of concealer.  It lasts all day.  It comes in glass bottle with a pump which is something that I find myself searching for foundations.

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream


Price – $6 to $8 in most stores

I forgot how much I love this stuff!  It provides SPF 30 Broad Spectrum coverage that also freshens the looks of your skin while providing enough coverage hide any blemishes.  This is the perfect light foundation for summer and it’s ultra hydrating!


Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso


Price – $7 to $9 in most stores

This is probably one of the best drug store blushes that you can get your hands on.  Although I’ve never purchased NARS Orgasm blush, this is said to be an exact dupe of that blush.  This blush gives you just an apricot-y, peachy tone glow without being too overpowering.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blushes


Price – $2 to $4

These blushes are AMAZING for the price!  I had heard people talking about them but thought that they couldn’t be that great because they were Wet n Wild.  I mean, I don’t mean to be judgemental, but you know, when you were a kid (at least when I was) Wet n Wild was the brand that was cheap and Mom would let you buy it just to play and waste it!

Well – I have to say that Wet n Wild has seriously stepped up their makeup game.  These blushes are not only beautiful, but are extremely pigmented and last quite a long time.  There’s no particular color that I’d consider my favorite because they’re all that good.  For the price – you really can’t beat it!

Makeup Geek Blushes


Price – $10

(Note:  This price is only for the blushes that are depotted and can be put in a z-palette.  To have them in individual compact form, they are $15 each)



Milani Cosmetics Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eye Shadow


Price – $3 to $5 each at most stores

I love these shadows.  I would say that they are some of the best drug store shadows for their price.

Here’s a link to a short instagram video where I swatched some colors. 

Loreal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Eye Shadow


Price – $6 to $9 at most stores

These are perfect eye shadows.  They come off extremely pigmented and beautiful!
Definitely pick some of these up – you won’t be disappointed.

Makeup Geek Eye Shadows

Makeup Geek Z Palette

Price – $6 to $10 each

There’s not much else I can say about Makeup Geek that I didn’t already say in a previous blog post.  Click here for all of my favorite shadows from Makeup Geek

Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows


Price – $5 each

These are the weirdest eye shadow formulas ever…but that’s not a bad thing!  They’re like a cream shadow but are so much better and extremely pigmented.  These have quickly become one of my daily staples.  I will have a more in depth Colour Pop post coming soon, so stay tuned!



Colour Pop Super Shock Cheek Highlighters


Price – $8

In my last order I placed with ColourPop, I decided to order a few of these highlighters and lemme tell you….girl….they are AWESOME!  These have the same formulation as the super shock shadows, so it’s a cream highlight, but it dries like a powder.

Wet n Wild Mega Glo Limited Edition Highlighter


Price – $3 – $5

I love this highlighter!  I have only been able to find one of these at the store and it was the very last one!  I find that it is just as good as the BECCA highlighters which cost you $38 each!  It’s such a shame that this is only a limited edition!

I will have my top lip & skincare products for under $10 later this week!
In the spirit of keeping it real…it’s almost 10:40 and my
appointment for my LOVELY root canal is at 11!

Have a better day than me, ya’ll!
