My Favorite 5 Beauty Products Under $5

Beauty bargains we all love them but sometimes they don't work well or do the job right!  How many "cheap" products have bought and then end up buying another because you didn't like it or was not what you expected.  I don't so many times and always think to my self, I should have just spent a little more money for a better product.  That is not to say that some cheaper priced products are not good.  I have found some that are great, and actually love more than the more expensive similar type beauty products.  Today I am sharing 5 of my favorite beauty products I been buying for many years and love. All under $5 so we can all afford to at least try them out! 

1. Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover:  I have been using this for years.  I love it because it works well with water proof mascara and leaves no greasy or oily residue. I usually buy it at Target for about $4.50.

2. ELF Essentials Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara:  I love this clear mascara for my eyebrows, never use it for my lashes. Since I have fuller busy eyebrows this gel is great for keeping combed and in place.  Being 2 sided you have double the amount to use and for only $1.00 you can't go wrong! 

3. New York Color Ultra Moist Lipwear:  NYC makeup is kinda new to me, know about for years but never really tried it. This past Halloween I needed a bright red lipstick for my costume, so I figured why not just get a cheap lipstick.  Initially I just used it for my Halloween makeup but realized it was a pretty good lipstick.  It long lasting and the color was great, a little matte but not too dry.  It was just $1.00 and totally worth the price. I am now a fan of NYC lipsticks. 

4. EOS Lemon Smooth Sphere Lip Balm SPF15:  There is nothing I hate more then dry cracked lips.  When I discovered EOS lip balm it was the fun round/sphere shape that caught my attention. They have many fun colors, once I tried it and found out it worked great.  My lips get the moisture they need and protected with the SPF 15.  The sphere shape is great too and makes it easy to find in your purse. $3.29

5.  ELF Essentials Slat Tweezers:  Why is it so hard to find a good pair of tweezers?  I have bought expensive tweezers and some don't work so well.  Also hate how they get lost so easily, so paying $25-30 for tweezers is not fun.  The ELF tweezers are really good, they have slanted point which makes it great for even those tiny hard to reach hairs. I always buy 2-3 at a time and have then on stock, because I know I am bound to lose them.  For $1.00 you can buy as many as you want and never go with out having tweezers.
