The economy is in a slump (along with my bank account…ugh!) but that doesn’t mean that I can’t still look fabulous! Check out these great beauty finds that you can score for $10 or less. #1 L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Le Gloss I’m the queen of lip gloss, and probably should be committed for hoarding so much of it. This new gloss is one that I love wearing because it gives amazing shine and color without that sticky feeling. Each tube contains Vitamin E to soften your lips. #2  Tweezerman Harajuku Lovers Matchbox Itty Bitty Files I’m forever in need of a nail file, but I don’t want to tote around a full-size file (purse space is at a premium, ya know?). I have no problem adjusting my nails on the go with these super cute files, which are housed in a mini, easy-to-tote case. #3  TOCCA Cleopatra Hand Cream When it comes to hand cream my motto is: the richer the better! I wash my hands A LOT, and I give them some TLC afterwards by applying a dab of this super-luxe lotion, which features a light, seductive grapefruit & cucumber scent and leaves hands baby soft thanks to a blend of Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil. #4 Noxzema Clean Moisture Removal Cloths In addition to always washing my hands, I’m also the queen of washing my face at least three times per day. (But I’m not like a clean neat freak or anything like that!) I exercise a lot, and these wipes quickly clean my face so I can get out of the gym stat. They’re also the perfect mid-day refresher and lazy girl’s full cleanse alternative. The formula is gentle (it’s alcohol-free), yet effective (they remove waterproof mascara!). #5 BeautyBlender Cleanser I use this to clean my BeautyBlender makeup sponge, but the bottle is the perfect size (3 fl oz) for me to throw in my carry-on when travelling. The pleasantly scented formula also works like a charm to clean regular makeup brushes. #6 TRESemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo Strengthening I’ll admit it: I don’t wash my hair as often as I should. Why? Well, partly because of my super hectic schedule. But the main reason is because I started using this dry shampoo. Just a couple of squirts into my roots and all style-ruining oil is gone. Plus, the formula contains vitamin B12 & Keratin to strengthen my strands. #7  Maybelline Great Lash LOTS OF LASHES Mascara I’m sure that you know all about the iconic Great Lash Mascara (it’s in the pink and green tube), but you’ve just got to try the newest version! LOTS OF LASHES mascara features a cute little heart-shaped “Great Little Grabber Brush” that lets you coat all of your lashes from root to tip (yes, even those baby ones at the ends and bottoms!) What has been the best under $10 beauty purchase you've ever made?
