These days, every penny counts when it comes to being fabulous! Check out our list of beauty buys that, at less than five bucks, will have you looking great and feeling quite clever.
Wondering how you can achieve fuss-proof lashes and brows with just one beauty tool? Look no further than this double-duty brush, made with cruelty-free taklon bristles, a recycled aluminum ferrule and a bamboo handle; this essential makeup kit tool will make you look and feel good.
We often think “drugstore brands” don’t deliver the same results as higher priced beauty items, but this non-sticky, long-lasting gloss does the trick! With ingredients like Kokum butter, Jojoba oil, and a few antioxidants (Grapefruit, vitamins A and E) thrown in for good measure, you’ll never be without the perfect pout.
Don’t you hate it when you snag a nail but don’t have a nail file handy? This micro-sized box of six double-sided files (one side shapes, the other side files) will solve this common grooming woe – and with their cute designs, will be a pleasure to stash in your purse or makeup bag!
This balm is a tried-and-true favourite! The non-greasy blend of mineral and fruit extracts works to provide your lips with maximum moisture without the use of synthetic ingredients. The passionfruit not only has a great flavour, but gives you smooth soft lips for hours. And with SPF 8 in its formula, this balm makes the perfect beach accessory.
Coming in over 20 different shades, this polish is frugal and flawless. The colour glides on precisely and quickly – in just one coat you’ll have beautiful shiny nails in a colour that lasts.
