    29 Things Under $10 That Don't Look Like They're Under $10

    Luxury, but make it as cheap as possible.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. High-rise leggings made from an ultra soft material you'll basically want to live in. If supreme coziness is what you're after, look no further than this perfect basic.

    Aerie

    Promising review: "Leggings came exactly as expected; stretchy and comfy but also NOT SEE-THROUGH, which is so important to everyone out there! I can’t wait to wear them on a comfy day, to the gym, or while rushing around campus." —Emily

    Get them from Aerie for $9.57 (originally $15.95, available in sizes XXS-XXL, four colors, in short and long lengths).

    2. A Dash mini waffle maker so adorable, it may inspire you to replace that cereal bar with an actual sit-down breakfast. (Don't be that TV character who grabs a single grape from a breakfast buffet and goes, "gotta run.")

    Target

    This waffle maker heats up super quickly, is designed with nonstick pans, and is fairly no-frills: Just plug it in, pour some batter, and wait for the light to turn green. Your waffles are now ready!

    Plus, this comes with a neat little recipe book packed with recipes for hash browns, paninis, biscuit pizzas — basically a bunch of recipes that can be done using just this little waffle maker.

    Get it from Target for $9.99.

    3. Nail wraps for an at-home manicure that's super fancy but requires *no* polish. Long gone will be the days of spilled bottles, the smell of acetone, and waiting 75 years for your nails to dry only to wake up with sheet marks anyway.

    So Gloss / Etsy

    Get them from So Gloss on Etsy for $9.

    4. A bottle of The Ordinary peeling solution packed with quality ingredients (think glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acid) to remedy your biggest skincare concerns: acne and excess oil. The time to break up with breakouts has arrived, my friends.

    Jamé Jackson / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I struggle with acne and acne scars and let me tell you, this stuff is THE BOMB i only tried it about four times now (two times max per week) but as soon as I took it off, I noticed a difference. It leaves your skin soft AF and clears impurities. Even my boyfriend loves it." —daniellemcp

    Get it form Sephora for $7.20.

    5. An LED toilet night light that is color-changing and motion-activated, meaning it'll ~light up~ whenever you approach your porcelain throne mid-REM at 2 in the morning.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Every time I walk into the bathroom and the light comes on, I can’t help but feel happy. It works great and turns on whenever I walk into the bathroom. Pretty cool!" —Kosmos

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $10.

    6. A coiled rope basket for those who have a green thumb and are looking for a stylish hanging planter. If you *don't* have a green thumb (...I may be a member of that club), than this sturdy piece of decor is equally great for storage.

    Target

    Get it from Target for $9.99.

    7. A corkscrew made with copper and handwoven rattan to upgrade your bar cart in a jiffy. Who cares if said bar cart is housing $7 wine — this accessory will fool your guests into thinking you're about to open up the finest aged red.

    West Elm

    Get it from West Elm for $7.99 (originally $19).

    8. A Sephora Collection scrub to deep cleanse your scalp and get rid of the built-up gunk in your roots, because your hair shouldn't feel greasy a mere three hours after shampooing. And FYI: It has a peppermint scent that will totally wake you up on mornings when even three cups of coffee aren't doing the trick.

    instagram.com / Via @sephoracollection

    Use a pea-sized amount of this vegan and cruelty-free product starting from your scalp and working it in through the ends of your hair.

    Promising review: "I have a SUPER dry scalp and only wash my hair once a week, so this is a game changer for my routine. I use this on my scalp first, and then shampoo and condition as normal. Huge reduction in flakes and I can go longer without my hair being as greasy. Also, great price point!!! I have also tried other (expensive) scalp scrubs and this one is the clear winner." –rg29

    Get it from Sephora for $7.

    9. A camouflage drawstring hoodie that takes a page from Hannah Montana and dares to be the ~best of both worlds~. Not only is this super comfy, but it's also pretty darn stylish and bound to get you (at minimum) 1,000 compliments.

    Boohoo

    Get it from Boohoo for $8 (originally $20, available in sizes XS-XL).

    10. A vegan and cruelty-free Versed face mask with two superstar ingredients: turmeric and red kaolin clay, both of which work in harmony to tone, brighten, and tighten your complexion. Masks that are super effective for $10 > masks that are just "eh" for $30+ .

    instagram.com / Via @versed, Target

    Not to mention the squeezable packaging is amazing — it contains 12+ applications, doesn't take up a ton of space, *and* doesn't require scooping product out of a jar.

    Get it from Target for $9.99.

    11. A C.O. Bigelow toothbrush designed with natural boar bristles and a tortoiseshell pattern that look like something out of a Sherlock Holmes film. We love mundane products that look luxe 👏 and 👏 vintage 👏.

    Psst, this toothbrush even comes with a carrying case for on-the-go storage.

    Get it from Verishop for $9 (available in two colors).

    13. A handmade wooden bookmark to hold your place in that potions textbook (....packed with unregulated annotations by someone who calls himself the "the Half-Blood Prince"). Plus, pudding whenever you want!?

    Nook and Burrow / Etsy

    Get it from Nook and Burrow on Etsy for $6.60.

    14. A coaster set packed with Friends trivia, because why not turn wine happy hours into an opportunity to assert your dominance as the shows number one fan?

    Get it from Williams Sonoma for $6.99 (originally $8.95).

    instagram.com / Via @sephoracollection

    Promising review: "I generally dislike florals, but this stuff is heaven! It smells exactly like a greenhouse, so it’s like getting a dose of springtime every morning. Nice consistency, cute packaging — I hope this never gets discontinued!" —hygeia

    Get it from Sephora for $4 (originally$10).

    17. Celestial hoop earrings you'll find yourself reaching for on the daily. If you're looking for a pièce de résistance to complement pretty much every piece of clothing you own, then this is IT.

    ModCloth

    Get it from ModCloth for $6.97 (originally $15).

    18. A pre-seasoned cast iron skillet ideal for cooking (and cleaning up after) a party of one. This is large enough to make your favorite meal, but small enough to easily store away — and it won't take up your entire sink when you don't feel like washing it right away.

    Bed Bath & Beyond

    Promising review: "I made the cutest blackberry pot pies in these skillets and could not believe how easy they were to clean!" —Buffalo716

    Get it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $9.99.

    19. A houndstooth bodycon dress you can dress up with heels *or* dress down with a pair of combat boots (see below). Now repeat after me: versatility.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $9.99 (available in sizes S-L).

    20. A ritzy stoneware mug to turn your morning coffee into an even more sacred ritual. (I know, I know, I didn't think it was possible either.)

    West Elm

    Psst, this mug is microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

    Get it from West Elm for $6.40 (originally $8, available in two colors).

    21. A Tequila Mockingbird cocktail kit that comes with two swizzle sticks, a bartender's jigger to measure out drinks, and a shortened version of the original book (which outlines 15 drink recipes and notes about which books inspired them). Consider this step one on your journey to becoming a professional mixologist!

    Barnes & Noble

    Get it from Barnes & Noble for $9.95.

    22. A limited-edition metallic lipstick with a creamy, buildable formula infused with microshimmers to add the just the slightest hint of sparkle.

    Anthropologie

    Promising review: "I’ve never smelled more delicious in my life...this perfume should be more than $100 for the way it smells. It lasts ALL day and I cannot tell you how much I love it. The perfect vanilla scent!" —LilyBlount

    Get it from Anthropologie for $10 (available in two scents).

    24. A smocked off-the-shoulder top meant for great things. And when I say "meant for great things," I mean this will officially become your new go-to article of clothing when you don't know what else to wear.

    HM

    Get it from H&M for $9.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in four colors).

    25. Luxurious wax melts available in a ton of different scents ranging from lilac blossom and vanilla bean to relaxing lavender and wild honey nectar.

    Get them from DW Home for $4.80+ (available in 16 scents).

    26. A leak-proof champagne stopper to keep your favorite beverage as fizzy as the day it was popped. That's right! This preserves bubbles and therefore preserves the champagne, meaning that expensive bottle won't go to waste if it isn't finished the day it's opened. Now without further ado, can I get a mimosa please?

    Williams Sonoma

    Get it from Williams Sonoma for $5.60 (originally $7).

    27. A thermal mug available in a ton of cute styles and patterns, but most importantly? It'll also keep your morning cup of joe hot 👏 for 👏 hours 👏.

    Get it from Ban.do for $6.99 (originally $14, available in 12 styles).

    28. A luxurious Dove body polish that enlists the help of crushed macadamia and rice milk for skin smoother than a baby's behind — and unlike most exfoliators, this formula won't leave your complexion feeling dried out the moment you step out of the shower.

    Promising review: "This is a great body polish that doesn't break out my sensitive skin! Plus, the smell makes you feel like you are at a spa!" —Target Reviewer
