Posted on: October 6, 2011

I’m a budget-minded gal, and I love finding quality beauty products on the cheap. If your wallet is hurting and you’re in need of a cheap beauty pick-me-up, check out these five fab beauty picks for $5 or less.

LA Colors Glossy Lips Lipgloss

Soft, smooth lips are yours for the taking when you use LA Colors Glossy Lips Lipgloss. Available in 24 luscious colors, you are sure to find one or two or three to fall in love with! Worn alone or over your favorite lip color, these glosses coat lips in a high gloss, super juicy shine. Plus, the soft brush applicator makes applying and touch ups a breeze!

e.l.f. Mineral Blush

Made with 100% all-natural ingredients, e.l.f.’s mineral blush is suitable for even the most sensitive skin -trust me, I’ve used it! Available in 7 shades that flatter a wide range of skin tones, this blush glides on smoothly and imparts a healthy glow without ever looking clown-ish.

Wet ‘N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette

I’ve used Wet ‘n Wild cosmetics since I was a young girl, and I still enjoy their budget-friendly products on a regular basis. Their Color Icon Eyeshadow Palettes are packed with six eyeshadows, 3 matte and 3 highly pigmented shades, that can be worn alone or combined for a coordinated, finished look. Available in Greed (smokey, pink neutrals,) Pride (vibrant blue/teal shades,) Lust (purple and grays) and Vanity (vibrant browns/neutrals.)

Sephora by OPI Nail Colour

Right now, Sephora has a great selection of Sephora by OPI nail colors on sale for a mere $5 a pop. These gorgeous shades are modern and long-lasting and will look great on fingers or toenails. Whether you’re in the mood for a bright, poppy pink or a glittery brown, you’ll be sure to find a shade or two you like from this collection.

NYC Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder

Available in translucent or naturally beige, this face power acts as the perfect finishing touch to help set your foundation and concealer in place. Alternatively, you can use it alone when you aren’t wearing face makeup to even skin tone and give you a natural look without heavy makeup. Plus, it covers just as well as the pricier brands!
