It's Friday! And you know what that means. Time to share some Nouveau-Cheap-approved beauty products that will set you back a grand total of five bucks.
Keep reading for this week's picks...
Jordana Easy Shine Glossy Lip Colors ($1.99 each at Walgreens, Kmart and the Jordana website). Do you crave a sheer lip color that feels light and looks glossy but delivers more pigment than a regular tinted lip balm? If so, these little wonders from Jordana might be just the ticket. At just two bucks a pop, I think they're definitely worth considering if you haven't tried them before. My favorite for fall is Sugar Plum, but I'm partial to Sweet Strawberry too (check out my full review with swatches here).
Wet n Wild Coloricon Eyeliners (retail: $0.99 each, wherever Wet n Wild is sold). Remember back in the day when Wet n Wild's eyeliners (the long pencils) were super hard and people used to warm them up with a lighter first? (Well that's what some of the girls at my high school used to do--I was far too paranoid to heat up a beauty product--it scared me just to watch them do it!) Anyway, long gone are those days and if you haven't revisited the Coloricon liners in the past few years, I think you might be surprised by how much softer (and more pigmented) they are. I think they're a great way to experiment with different colors to find out what works for you--especially before committing to higher-priced products. My favorites: Olive and Amethyst.
Suave Naturals Creamy Cocoa Butter & Shea Body Wash (retail: $2 wherever Suave products are sold). In terms of inexpensive body washes, this one by Suave is surprisingly moisturizing on my dry wintertime skin and it smells so yummy. I obviously don't know how it will work for you but for my particular skin, I'm constantly surprised by how non-drying this body wash is, and how often I reach for it in the wintertime. I think it's such a gem at just two bucks a pop.
That's it for this installment of Five Buck Friday. Do you already own any of these products? I'd love to hear how they work for you!
