20 Drugstore Beauty Steals Under $10!

Let’s be honest, as college students we don’t have the time or money to go to Sephora for all of our beauty needs. Walking into the nearest drugstore will have to do. But the hardest part about shopping for drugstore beauty products is to find a cheap product that actually works. After tons of research, trial and error, and many reviews, I’ve found the solutions. Here are the 20 best drugstore beauty steals all under $10!

1. e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit

Keep your eyebrows on fleek with this product that’s easy to use, carry and store. This is definitely a must have, especially if you’re on a budget.

2. NYX Roll-On Eye Shimmer

Put the GLITZ in GLAM with this product. For super simple glitter application in literally ANY color you can think of, get this product!


3. Maybelline Great Lash

The long lasting Maybelline Great Lash is one of the best mascaras out there – I mean come on – it’s been around for ages!

4. e.l.f Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer

This ultra-sheer color prepares your eyelids for smoother, longer-lasting, crease-proof eyeshadow.

5. Loréal Infallible Eyeshadow

In case you cry because of finals…at least your eyeshadow will stay in place. The Loréal Infallible Eyeshadow is not only stylish and perfect for everyday wear, but it’s also waterproof!


6. John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Hair Serum

This serum can control frizzy hair in any weather, yeah, I’m talking about you rain! For around $10 you fix your hair for class without the weather bringing you down.

7. Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

With just one easy application, the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream instantly blurs imperfections and evens out skin tone. Plus, there are no heavy ingredients so you won’t look “cakey.”


8. NYC City Proof Eyeshadow

This eyeshadow delivers vibrant color for up to 24 hours. P.S. Demi Lovato loves this product so it MUST be good!

9. NYX Studio Liquid Liner

The NYX Studio Liquid Liner will bring out your electric eyes! A tube of this high-pigmented eyeliner will give you the option to go subtle or glam for any event, even if it’s just going to class.

10. e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick

I highly recommend the e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick to give your lips some lovin’! I use it anytime, whether going to class or on a date with my boyfriend. It holds true to its name because it takes hours for my lips to need another application. It is enriched with Shea and Vitamins A, C, & E to nourish and hydrate the lips.


11. Maybelline New York Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

This smudge-proof and waterproof gel eyeliner will keep your eyes looking fierce all night long.

12. CoverGirl Classic Color Blush

This product will keep your cheeks nice and rosy, so don’t worry if you blush when you see your crush! The perfectly natural look comes in a beautiful compact mirror case.

13. Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer

This lightweight concealer blends perfectly with your skin! I use it after my foundation. You could also use this as a cheap and efficient way to highlight if you purchase one in a shade lighter than your skin tone.

14. e.l.f. Contour Palette

This contour palette is only $6 compared to most brand’s which are valued at $40 or more. So go ahead and practice your Kim K look with this awesome set.

No, this palette isn’t for art class, this one’s completely dedicated to your eyes! It includes a wonderful assortment of shades that will look great for every ocassion!


17. Wet n Wild Mega Last Liquid Lip Color

If you want gloss with a little bit of color, I would suggest the Wet n Wild Mega Last Liquid Lip Color. It provides lips with color that stays…aka you can finally say goodbye to lip stained straws!


19. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is a cream that sets into your lips, creating a matte finish. It packs a ton of moisture too!


19. Maybelline Eye Studio Color Plush

The Maybelline Eye Studio Color Plush comes in many colors, but if you want a Smokey look I would suggest the “Sapphire Siren.” This palette has 4 rich colors and a smooth feel.


20. NYX Retractable Eyeliner

For just under $5, the NYX Retractable Eyeliner is perfect for when you’re on the go and need to have a bold eyeliner. It comes in many colors, but my personal favorite is Deep Purple. The colors give a nice tone to it that is subtle but powerful.
