Confession: I'm super cheap. Like, awkwardly, unattractively cheap. Maybe it's because I grew up in a family with a tight budget and a thrifty, coupon-cutting mom, maybe it's because I've spent 7 of the last 9 years in college, or maybe I'm just wired that way. Whatever the reason, I am always (literally, ALWAYS) thinking about ways to save money, and when faced with a choice between two items, I will choose the less expensive one 100% of the time. I can't help it - and usually, I'm kind of proud of it.
When it comes to beauty products, though, I have trouble. I know that the more expensive products are of higher quality, are usually better for me, and last longer (as is the case with my beloved Tarte cheek stain). However, might I remind you that I am SUPER CHEAP? It's a dilemma.
Enter eyes lips face and their ridiculously inexpensive products. With e.l.f. I've come to terms with spending more money elsewhere. I mean, if I'm getting bronzer for $1, I can spend a little more money on moisturizer, right? Right.
Here are my favorite e.l.f. products, all of which are a ridiculous $1. Yep, ONE DOLLAR. I know.
One of these little guys doesn't necessarily last too long, but for $1, who cares?
I use this on the inner corners of my eyes - brightens them right up after a long night!
A great little shadow brush.
Pretty colors, pretty amazing staying power.
If you've gone a little too long between brow waxes (guilty) this is simply necessary.
A handy little tool to keep nails healthy and lovely. Especially handy in harsh Minnesota winters.
e.l.f. charges $7 or so for shipping, but check here and here for shipping deals and other coupon codes.
