Feelin’ Frugal | Top 5 Products Under $5

There’s nothing better than finding an awesome product at the drugstore!  Sometimes I really find some hidden gems among those aisles, and  I tend to use them more than my higher end makeup.  

While choosing my products to include in this post, I had a very hard time (as you can imagine) narrowing it down to just five.  I tried to include products that I haven’t talked about that much that are really good.  Let’s get into it! 

Wet N’ Wild Coloricon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana – this is in their “bronzer” collection, but this is more of a highlight color.  First of all, this compact is huge.  You get a lot of product for right around $4.  This is a champagne colored powder that gives your cheekbones a gorgeous sheen without any glitter or sparkle.  It makes your skin look fresh and pretty.  It is soft and not chalky at all.  This is the best drugstore highlight I’ve found yet.

Wet N’ Wild Coloricon Blush in Pearlescent Pink – another winner from Wet N’ Wild!  This is a shimmery peachy pink blush that is just gorgeous.  It is very pigmented and glides on the cheeks so smoothly.  This color is perfect for everyday and is only about $3!

ELF Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in Toast – I love these creamy eyeshadows!  The texture of these are like a whipped mousse, and work great as an eyeshadow base or as an all over the lid color.  This color here is a shimmery gold, and it lasts all day.  Check these out, they’re only $3!
 

Rimmel Scandaleyes Pencils – eyeliner is something I believe you do not have to spend a lot of money on.  I have talked about how much I love these pencils before, and it’s because they are so good!  They are so smooth and creamy, super pigmented, and only around $3!  These also really stay on my waterline.  Check these out if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to the UD 24/7 liners.

Essence Lipstick in Natural Beauty – I love these Essence lipsticks!  Essence is a little bit hard to find where I am in Texas, but they have the brand at ULTA.  These lipsticks are $3, and they are so moisturizing and pretty!  This color is a creamy neutral pink that has a shiny finish (similar to MAC Lustres).

Here are some swatches of all of the products: 

I hope you liked this post!
