Monthly beauty finds under $10 dollars! (March)

Hey everyone I wanted to share with you all of the awesome beauty products that I found and tried through out the month of march. The greatest part of all is that they were all under ten dollars. Amazing right?
All under $10.00

Let's start off with these lovely concealers I've been using for the past month.

The Covergirl concealer has a very creamy consistency as it's meant to have an anti-aging moisturizer built into the formula. This concealer has definitely become a favorite of mine and a must have in my daily makeup routine. Due to the fact that it is a very creamy concealer I absolutely recommend to top it off with a translucent powder to set it and ensure that it doesn't crease or move around.
The new L'oreal concealer is an excellent product. The specific shade that I purchased is a little more yellow based than the other concealer pictured above as I prefer a more yellowish concealer for other areas of my face that I may have a little more discoloration. Some people use this concealer under the eyes as I am sure you can since it is very blendable, but for me personally it worked better to help define my eyebrows and conceal other areas.

These are the infamous Maybelline 24 hr Color Tattoos.
I have actually purchased a few of these before but these colors are the newest additions to my collection and the most wearable for daily use. These suckers don't move at all! They really fulfill the promise of the 24 hr wear. However I have not worn them for that long. Ick who would want to wear their makeup for 24 hours? I often use the Tough as Taupe shade as a base color for a neutral brown smokey eye look.

This mascara is not waterproof by any means but it is the blackest mascara I have ever tried that it from the drugstore and under $10.00
The Milani eye tech liquid liner is a great find. Its definitely a good product for those that are still learning to apply liquid liner. The compact packaging makes it easy to hold and apply. The swatch pictured above does not do the product justice. This eyeliner is definitely more pigmented than the picture shows. As for the Rimmel scandaleyes liner in nude I recommend this liner for your waterline. It is extremely creamy, pigmented and long-lasting. By applying this liner in your waterline you give yourself a more wide awake appearance.
The e.l.f. lip exfoliator is truly an amazing find. At only $3.00 this exfoliator really works to remove all the dead skin that you may have on your lips while leaving a soft moisturizing effect on your lips.
These two products were great additions to my collection. Although the fuchsia shade is obviously not a color I would personally use on a daily basis but it truly is a very pretty color. Not to mention highly pigmented. It is so pigmented that even after wiping it off it left my lips looking as if I had applied a lip stain. Ha ha so I would recommend using the exfoliator after wearing this color to remove any remnants of it left behind. The Rimmel lip stick is a soft pink, it is very creamy and buildable..
What can I say about this brush? Other than WOWZERS! It's awesome at blending concealer, blush, creamy products, etc.. I can't get enough of this brush as with the other e.l.f. studio line brushes. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
These are great if you want to add a little sparkle to your makeup looks!
I hope you all enjoyed seeing my awesome beauty finds for the month of March. I hope the swatches help in case you were interested in any of these products. Let me know if you have any questions on any of these specific products or any others that you may be interested in.
Wishing you all a lovely week!
