    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us their favorite under-$10 beauty products. Here are the best responses:

    1. ColourPop's Lippie Stix provides full matte coverage and gives your lips extra hydration so they don't feel dried out (like some matte lipsticks tend to do). That's what we call a WIN.

    2. e.l.f. Cosmetics' waterproof mascara adds length and volume to your lashes and then promises to *stay* that way, even if you laugh so hard you end up crying...

    3. wet n wild's Megaglo highlighter gives you a fierce and natural shimmer (that's buttery, not chalky, yet still buildable) for a fraction of the price of high-end ones.

    4. Maybelline's Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation comes in tons of colors to provide effortless coverage and blur pores. It's lightweight and oil-free making it ideal for normal to oily skin.

    5. L’Oréal's Brow Stylist Definer features a half millimeter tip (yeah — that's TINY!) so you can create precise lines that actually blend in with your brows.

    6. Mario Badescu's facial spray cools, rehydrates, and tones so whenever your skin is need of a boost, just give your face a few spritzes, and BOOM — you're done!

    7. Coty Airspun Loose Powder sets makeup while ridding excess shine and oil to leave skin looking flawless. And if you're wondering about possible flashback, there isn't any — just see for yourself:

    8. Catrice's Liquid Camouflage concealer brightens up dark spots, masks blemishes and scars, and evens out skin tone so you can always walk out of the house feelin' your best.

    9. Hard Candy's primer line has a variety of products suited for different skin issues (dry, oily, dark spots, and so on) to make damn sure your makeup goes nowhere.

    10. NYX's Epic Ink liquid liner has a super-fine felt tip to give you more control, and lasts all day so your cat-eye stays ~on point~ no matter what the weather does.

    11. ColourPop's No Filter concealer gives buildable matte coverage that dark circles, blemishes, and redness will be no match for.

    12. Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser is a super effective makeup remover that'll take off the most waterproof of products, suck up dirt from the depths of your pores, and actually leave your face feelin' extra smooth and refreshed.

    13. Sephora Collection's #Lipstories Lipsticks offer up some vibrant, full-coverage pigments and come in the most adorable packaging. Instagram is not ready.

    14. Essence's Metal Shock metallic eyeshadows are creamy, mesmerizing, and will give you a striking look with minimal effort.

    15. wet n wild's Photo Focus foundation comes in at only $4 but will give your skin high-end, full-coverage results.

    16. Simple's skin care line is a treasure trove for people with sensitive skin (and honestly, just anyone with skin!). Their products are dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, and free of harsh chemicals.

    17. Rimmel London's Stay Matte liquid lipstick applies like silk and gives you a burst of color that won't cake, flake, or dry out your lips.

    18. Milani's Baked Bronzer creates a gorgeous glow with the swipe of a brush, and is compact enough that you can toss it in your bag and head out the door!

    19. L'Oréal's Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. cream is a lightweight formula (with antioxidants and vitamins C and E) to give you natural-feeling, sheer coverage you'll love on lazy days.

    20. Maybelline's Colossal mascara line adds length and volume to your lashes thanks to its clump-free and collagen-enriched formula.

    21. Makeup Revolution's Conceal & Define concealer is lightweight yet still provides long-lasting, matte coverage in a wide range of shades from fair to deep, to cool, neutral and warm undertones.

    22. And lastly, Rimmel London's Stay Matte primer is the workhorse of primers and will smooth skin, refine pores, and get rid of shine — aka, it's about to become your favorite $5 purchase.

    Ahh, nothing beats great makeup at an affordable price.
