5 best beauty buys for $5

I asked you lovelies on my Facebook page if you would be interested in seeing a new segment called "5 best beauty buys for $5" and I had an amazing response, so here it is! Thinking of making this a monthly post, and maybe even doing 10 for $10, what do you think?



I am a firm believer that good beauty products don't always have to cost a fortune. Some of my favorite beauty staples are those I don't have to justify buying. As always I would never recommend a product to you I haven't tried and loved myself.

I swear by these things. I have gotten many friends and even my boyfriend hooked on them. While I do love make-up cloths like this and buy many different brands, these are the ones I use every single day! Perfect for using at night and morning, and getting off even waterproof mascara. 

If you follow this blog at all you know how obsessed I am with this EOS balm. There is so much to love; the cute little shape, USDA Organic, the perfect consistency, affordable, and nourishing!

Remember the satisfaction of peeling dried glue off your hands in kindergarten? (don't even try and act like you didn't do this) Well this mask is like that, but for your face! Lots of masks dry my skin out but this one is super gentle. I love the way my skin feels after I use it!

This product has cult following in the beauty community, no really. It's crazy affordable, provides perfect multi-dimensional color for your face, and comes in an array of pallets! Your skin naturally has many colors and tones to it, so these kind of pallets create a more natural look. So soft too!

I got this brush in my Studio brush collection and I can't stop using it! I use it after my foundation brush to buff and blend, for my bronzer, my airbrush foundation, and so much more. With a price tag of only $3 you can't afford not to own this brush! Not to mention I use this over my Sephora brushes!



So what do you lovelies think? More posts like this? Want to see 10 for $10?

  3. Basically anything from e.l.f. at Target is worth the cost - which is almost always under $5!
