Why pay $20 for makeup when you can get some in equal quality for $2? I’ve tried every product on this list with the exception of a couple nail polishes. I can’t guarantee you you’ll love them but I do.

E.l.f Volumizing and Defining Mascara-$2
What’s more annoying than hair on your face? Waxing…
Nair Face Cream-$3.32
A 2 oz bottle lasts me has lasted me almost a year and still going..
You can buy it here (target.com). It’s also available at any drugstore, Walmart and basically anywhere.
Note: It does have a bad smell but it actually works and takes your facial hair off in 15 minutes or less. You get use to the smell after a while. It’s pain-free, inexpensive and works!
Maybelline Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB w/ SPF 30-$6.29
I don’t leave the house without this during the summer. Having pale skin and freckles makes me extra prone to the sun and MORE freckles. It blends perfectly with my skin. I use the “Light Sheer Tint”. It does not cover up my freckles but offers me protection and great looking skin!
elf Studio Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette, Limited Edition “Everyday”-$7.00
This comes with 32 colors. It’s limited editions so it may not come back in stock. But they have the larger version with 100 eyeshadows here for $10! (They’re limited and that’s a great deal.)
You can get it here (elf).
e.l.f Studio Liner and Shadow Stick-$1.00
Check it out here (eyeslipsface.com).
I have yet to find a good eyebrow pencil that has a variety of colors. Comment below if you have and I will check it out!
elf Mineral Lipstick-$5
They have 13 available colors! The one I’m wearing is Ripe Rose.
You can get it here (eyeslipsface,com)
Day by Day Beauty Luxury Blotting Wipes-$9.97
If you have oily or combination skin, I highly recommend these blotting wipes. I know it sounds weird but the paper is soft! It’s also a cruelty-free brand so no hurting animals 🙂
Nail Polish Remover:
Honestly, I’ve never used a nail polish remover that doesn’t work. I’m currently using the Dollar General Nail Polish remover, non acetone. Why pay more for something so simple??
DG Nail Polish Remover-$1 (i think)
You can’t purchase it online but it should be available at your local dollar general.
Why pay $12 for one nail polish? Here are some great brands with even greater prices!
- Wet n’ Wild-99c here (walgreens.com). Also 99c here (riteaid.com)
- e.l.f-99c to $3 (for set). Get some here (eyeslipsface.com)
- Klean Color-$1 Here (shopmissa.com)
- L.A. Colors-$1 here (shopmissa.com)
- Tons of nail stuff for $1 at shopmissa.com (link takes you directly to the nail section)
I have bought from shop Miss A before and they are not a scam. They just buy wholesale with great discounts so they are able to offer products for $1. YouTube “Shopmissa” and you will see many bbloggers endorsing them 🙂
Today I bought Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser because my BFF Taylor suggested it. I bought it from Target. It only takes a very small amount. It smells great but does not have an overpowering scent.
I have also previously used wipes which also work nicely but do not last long at all.
- Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser-$4.89 at Target (link takes you to the product on target.com) it’s $4.99 online. Here (Amazon, affiliate link) for $4.59!
- Forever 21 Cucumber Lemon Cleansing Wipes 60 ct-$4.80, not tested on animals. Get them here
