Five Beauty Products Under Five Dollars

Does anyone else measure the value of something by how many Chipotle burritos they could buy for the same cost? Like, I see a lot of bloggers, buying $150 dollar moisturizer, and all I can think is ‘I COULD BUY 21 CHIPOTLE BURRITOS FOR THAT PRICE’. But maybe that’s just me. Maybe I’m the only person in the world that likes to save money. Maybe everyone else is just rolling around in a tub full of cash, wondering why I’m writing this blog. Alas, I digress. Today, though, I’m sharing my five favorite beauty products that cost under five dollars – because that means you can buy all five for 25 dollars, which means you will still have money to go grab a burrito.

1 – ELF Lip Exfoliator for $3

Anybody else love long-wear lipstick? Then you know the key is exfoliating first. I LOVE this lip exfoliator – it comes like a lipstick tube, and also moisturizers.

2 – NYX Concealer Jar for $5

I have crazy dark undereye circles. Is that ok to admit? Am I supposed to pretend I woke up pretty? Yeah, I look like I got punched in the eyes when I first woke up. This stuff is dirt cheap, and works SO well at covering up sleepless nights, and chronic under eye circles.

3 – ELF St. Lucia Blush/Bronzer for $4

I’ve tried all kinds of expensive bronze/blush duos, and nothing is as good as this – especially when I apply it wet.

4 – ELF baked highlighter for $4

Guys, I’m obsessed with this highlighter. You can use it on your face, and you can also use it as an eyeshadow that stays put all day.

5 – Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser for $5

Looking for a gentle cleanser that also takes off all your makeup? Look no further – this stuff is great, and if it explodes in your luggage, you won’t cry because it was only five dollars.

So go, buy all the cheap items, then eat all the burritos. You earned it.
