5 Under $5

5 Under $5

Best Budget Makeup

by Miranda Mendelson


You don't need to spend a ton to find great makeup.

Tap through to discover 5 makeup products under $5 that perform just as well as high end!


Wet n Wild Color Icon 5-Pan Palettes

For just $2.99, these are the best eyeshadows at the drugstore! They're super pigmented, easy to blend and stay vibrant all day. Above I've swatched the palettes Sundaze & Walking on Eggshells.

Wet n Wild MegaGlo  Highlighting Powder

Apply softly for a subtle glow, or build it up for an out-of-this-world beam! This $4.99 highlighter is soft and easy to blend. The shade I'm applying here is Golden Flower Crown.

AOA Studio Perfect Setting Powder

This $1 setting powder is extremely fine, and dusts over your face in an even layer to blur pores and set your makeup for longer wear. It performs just as well-- if not better-- than high end powders!

Essence This is Nude Lipstick

If you love neutrals, you'll love this lipstick line. Only $3.99, it gives full coverage color in one swipe that lasts comfortably with a semi-matte finish. The shade swatched above is Crazy.

Essence Lash Princess Mascara

Often called the best drugstore mascara, this $4.99 tube does wonders for short lashes! You get a ton of length, lift, and separation for a fanned out, full look.
