Summer Series: Cosmetic Treasures $10 Bucks and Under



As Summer quickly approaches you may be on the look out for a beauty steal and deal here and there! A little cosmetic treasure that won't break your piggie bank too much. Check out some cool buys for $10 bucks and under to add to your Summer time beauty regime!


Check outL.A. Girl Illuminating Blush in Just Pinched for a flush of pink to your cheeks. This nifty blush comes in a dual compartment compact with blush on top and applicator on the bottom plus a full size mirror for quick on the go touch ups. Best part of all? It'll only set you back $6 bucks!


Score glossy, shiny lips with a trio of Neutrogena MoistureShine Gloss Set for under $10 bucks! Likey!


A kiss of blush and a hint of bronze, Sonia Kashuk Crème Bronzer/ Blush Duo in Golden Crème gives you both for $8.99!


Treat lips so they are moist and shiny with the Muse's personal favorites, Smith's Rosebud Salve and Smith's Strawberry Lipbalm. Only $5.59 each so even if you indulge in both you're still keeping it at almost $10 bucks!


Did you know Girlactik Star Blush used to be sold at Sephora for more than the $3 bucks you can nab it for now? Check out shades Capri and Bora Bora for a slick way to amp up your Summer color wardrobe! Hey, get three and you're still at your $10 threshold.


Pretty much a great dupe for MAC Tender Tones, L'Oreal HIP Jelly Balm are around, available, and under $10 bucks (unlike Tender Tones which are long since gone!)


It always amuses the Muse that there are indeed items from E.L.F. that cost more than a buck! E.L.F. Mineral Eye Shadows are $3 bucks and pack a nice hint of shimmer for a nice Summer eye look. Honest, the Muse has seen them up close and personal, not too bad a deal for these babies. Try out Celebrity or the new shade Golden.


Snag a two pack of Softlips with SPF 20 to keep your lips protected while you're lazing poolside.


Get your glow on for $4 bucks with Bonnie Bell Blend N Glow Natural Blush!


Metallic strips of gold, bronze, and green are sure to keep your eyes looking fierce this Summer with Milani Runway Eyes Palette.


Not the biggest fan of Sephora makeup but not denying that the shimmering array of Sephora Colorful Strass Mono Eyeshadow for $10 bucks each is a killer deal. Try out #3 and #5 for that Sunset Eye Look you've been wanting to test drive.


NYX Cream Blush is a great one for the pool as it won't easily rub off as a powder would plus sets you back $7 bucks...what's not to love?


The Muse has a thing for mineral blushes especially ones that are $5 bucks, contain an SPF 15, and come in shades called Glistening Coral! Splash Mineral Blush has it going on.

Check out some of the above cosmetic goodies to keep your Summer budget on the low down. Your wallet will thank you I'm sure!
