Beautiful buys that are actually budget-friendly.

Posted on

1. A mega-useful eyeshadow palette full of 88 rich colors (the budget-friendly price comes to about 18 cents per shade!).

With 29 matte shadows and 59 shimmery shadows, there are endless combinations for stunning eye makeup looks.

Get it from Amazon for $16.10.

2. A delicious-smelling lip gloss infused with real dried flowers and mineral oil to leave your pout soft and shiny.

It'll look gorgeous on any vanity.

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $6. Available in five different flavors.


3. A rosy powder blush with a soft and poofy applicator for anyone who wants to feel like an old-fashioned starlet while putting on their face.

The high-quality pigment is soft and natural-looking, so the adorable packaging is really just a bonus.

Get them from Amazon for $6.30 each. Available in five colors: rose, peach, plum, coral, and pink. You can also get the set of all five for $23.29.

4. A protein-packed foam designed to clear congested skin, refine pores, and kick excess oil's ass.

The velvety foam feels super luxe, leaving your skin soft and smooth. The best part? A pea-sized amount goes a long way.

Get it from Amazon for $11.

5. A set of 10 (10!) rose gold domed brushes that'll look gorgeous on your vanity AND make blending your makeup actually effortless.

Use the smallest brushes for your eyebrow highlight or for blending eyeshadow!

Get the set from Amazon for $23.99.

6. A heavenly jar of whipped body butter masquerading as a giant rose (it will leave your skin equally petal-soft).

It's available in eight colors and scents, ranging from lavender (perfect for moisturizing before bed) to honey. There's also an unscented version for those of us with sensitive skin!

Get it from Tailored Soap on Etsy for $19.99.


8. A set of mini lipsticks you can keep in your purse for changing your lip color with your mood.

And at a price that won't leave you gnashing your teeth if you lose one.

Get the set of five from Forever 21 for $8.90. Available in bold and natural color combos.

9. A five-piece rainbow brush set that's perfect for pretending to be a unicorn beauty YouTuber while applying your makeup.

11. A moisturizing hydrogel eye sheet mask to make your skin radiant (and also give you butterfly kisses).

Best for when you're home relaxing and wrapped in a ~cocoon~ of blankets.

Get it from American Eagle for $5.

12. A makeup sponge with precise edges that'll make you say, "What Beautyblender?"

It spreads foundation evenly on skin, resulting in an even-looking application with no splotches. Use the pointed tip to conceal spots or blend those hard-to-reach areas (like the side of your nose) and the curved inner edge for sculpting and contouring.

Get it from Kiko Cosmetics for $10.


14. A cream eyeliner and brush set that gives Benefit and MAC a run for their money.

Just listen to reviewer Samantha Loos: "I was about to buy the expensive, high-end version of this product from MAC. But I said why not, I'll try this out. It has lasted me forever and goes on just the same as MAC would. Stays on all day too. I just put some powder over it to set it and I'm good!"

Get it from Amazon for $2.99.

16. A powder blush in a delicate flower shape that looks more department store than drugstore.

It has a silky texture and natural finish so your cheeks aren't covered in sparkles.

Get it from Amazon for $6.62 or Target for $7.99. Available in four colors.


18. A mild exfoliator with notes of jasmine and sandalwood for anyone who really loves cashmere (and wants their skin to feel just as soft).

It has rice granules in it that massage away dead skin, so you don't have to worry about gross plastic particles going down the drain.

Get it from H&M for $5.99.


26. A primer that's chock-full of honey and actual gold flakes because you deserve it, damn it.

Also because the honey kills annoying bacteria while the gold flakes promote the skin's natural radiance.

Get it from Amazon for $15.19.
