Finding a diamond in the drugstore is no easy task. Finding a diamond under 5 dollars seems nearly impossible. Luckily for you, I have put together a top 5 of my fave products when you're ballin' on a budget ;)
This little palette packs a punch by providing a smooth and creamy matte highlight shade that is great for under the eyes, right alongside a beautiful and ultra-blendable contour shade. This product comes in two different shades, "Dulce de Leche" for fairer skin tones and "Caramel Toffee" for medium to medium deep skin tones. This palette can be found at most drugstores for a whopping $4.99....quite a steal.
Elf brushes are a staple in my collection. They are inexpensive, yet soft and durable. This one in particular has been blessed upon me by the Makeup Brush Gods (thank you) because I would be a lost soul without this blush brush. It is small and precise, yet fluffy. This lets me control where I apply blush on my cheeks, but also disperses product and a very even and blended manner. That's not easy to find in a blush brush, especially for only $2.99!
Anyone who knows me, or has even watched my videos knows that this is an absolute NO BRAINER. Hands down one of my favorite lip colors of all time. It is such an effortless mauvy pink color that goes with just about any nude lipstick you can think of. Not to mention it is beautiful and creamy on its own! I've gone though at least a dozen of these, but being only $2.99 I don't feel as guilty ;)
I've been using this product for about 6 years (no joke). I love love love this brow gel. It is like hairspray for my brows...they ain't goin' NO WHERE when I have them locked in with this product. You can find this hidden gem in any store, so definitely invest the $2 and pick this bad boy up.
This lipstick is a relatively new find for me but I'm already obsessed. This lipstick is not only longer lasting than some of my more expensive lipsticks, it's more hydrating too. Especially in these dry winter months, I'm not trynna have my lips all dry and flaky. This lipstick provides beautiful mauvy pink (my favorite lip color if you didn't notice) color payoff, while also having that nice sticky feeling to the lips to keep it lasting long. The hydration in this lipstick gives it a nice shine, which will make your lips look healthy and plump! Nothing bad to say about this product and at $2.99, there isn't any reason to not have every single color!
