While it would be nice to have a beauty room filled with the best high end beauty products the world has to offer, sometimes we have to be realistic about what's in our bank account. Or not in our bank account, as the case may be. Yet just because we're not swimming in cash a la Scrooge McDuck (sigh, I'm showing my age), it doesn't mean we have to miss out. There's plenty of fantastic budget-friendly beauty options out there - check these fab ten tools under $10 out!
If the cost of a Beautyblender makes you blanche, check out the Chi Chi Make-up Blending Sponge! It's just $8.99 from Farmers and can be used to apply and blend cream products to the skin. We especially love its tear drop shape for getting into all the itty bitty corners of the face.
An easy way to make your peepers pop is to use an eyelash curler alongside lashings of mascara - and this rose gold number from Kmart is rocking our world! And it's just $7!
Kmart comes to the pretty party again with these out-of-control unicornesque Iridescent Slant Tweezers. They're only $6, but they look a million bucks.
You know what I enjoy? A tool that makes life easier... and while you might not strictly call Manicare's Moisturing Nail Polish Remover Pads a tool, I'm saying they are because like a tool you use them to fix things. In this case, removing manky nail polish. For all of $6.90 you don't have to faff about with cotton balls or pads and worry about spilling nail polish remover onto your nice wooden coffee table and ruining its surface. (Yes. I have done that.) These are must-haves.
Good looking brows require good tools, and a spoolie and brush are a great place to start. Carousel Cosmetics have got you sorted with a 2-in-1 brush for just $9. Available from Beauty Bliss.
There are those times when you really need to check your reflection, like just before an interview or when you're on a date and want to make sure there's no spinach or seeds in your teeth. Times like this a compact mirror is a must - and this Manicare Mirror Compact is just $9.49!)
Who needs to spend a fortune on a mani or pedi when the Mecca Max Nail Care Cube can shape, buff and shine your nails to perfection for all of $7!
Soft. Fluffy. And absolutely fabulous. You've got to love the Wet n Wild range of brushes for affordable tools that get the job done. Their Blush Brush is a bargain at $6.99.
A good blending blush makes the difference between a nice eye look and a smoking hot one. The prices of some blending brushes though are enough to make your eyes water. Not this one though - the Morphe M218 Fluff Brush is all of $9 and its rounded design make buffing and blending a breeze!
Sometimes even when we're feeling frugal we want a little luxury in our lives, and what can make a gal feel more fancy than sharpening her eye or lip pencils with this delightful Benefit All-Purpose Sharpener, at the totally doable price of $9. Get on my vanity already!
