10 Quality Makeup Products Under $10 | Affordable Makeup

Ever wondered what quality makeup products under $10 you can get without breaking the bank? Well, I got you.

Today’s post I would be talking about some quality products you can pick up from the local drugstore that would give you the Instagram baddie look without having to splurge at Sephora.

Let’s be honest, most times we assume that spending more money equals getting better looks, but that could only be further from the truth.

These days the drugstore has started stepping up its game. It literally is surprising to see the quality of products the drugstore has been producing over the years. Not just in terms of quality, but diversity as well.

I’ve been investing so much more in drugstore makeup these days that I hardly ever go to Sephora, and that’s simply because I’ve started to fall more and more in love with the cheaper quality available options that are now released on a regular basis in the beauty community.

So if you’re just like me and are willing to get the best for your budget, well., here are some quality makeup products under $1o dollars that you can pick up right now.


  • Elf Mineral Infused Primer ($10)

makeup products under $10

Looking for a primer under $10 without having to splurge on the benefit porefessional??? Well then, get yourself the elf mineral infused primer.

It is a silicon-based primer that actually helps your makeup apply on smoothly and flawlessly. I personally like to use this around my T-zone as that’s where I usually tend to get very oily the most. This primer does help control my oil levels for a decent amount of time.

I would however not recommend this primer if you’re planning on wearing your makeup for 24 hours, as it’s not the best when it comes to long wear.

On the other hand, If you want a primer that offers a smooth application and long wear, then be sure to pick up the NYX Angel Viel primer. It is slightly priced higher than the elf mineral infused primer, retailing for $12, but it offers way more benefits without really breaking the bank

  • Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation ($5.49)

Still hands down one of the best and most diverse foundations you can get today for a stinkingly affordable price.

The foundation offers a smooth application without clogging the pores. Most importantly, it gives a beautiful natural finish on the skin. It is more on the medium to full coverage spectrum, but the thing about this foundation is how undetectable it is. It comes in so many shade ranges that help the overall appearance of your makeup look more like skin.

You definitely can’t go wrong with this foundation, and for the price point, it definitely is a steal.

Looking for the perfect dupe to the Tarte Shape Tape concealer, then don’t miss out on picking up the makeup revolution conceal & define concealer.

This concealer offers full coverage and does a great job at masking those pesky dark circles. In addition, it blends like a DREAM and doesn’t crease as much.

Nothing is more annoying like a cheap concealer that is absolutely difficult to blend, but not this one!  You’d be happy to have this as a part of your collection.

  • Makeup Revolution Banana Powder ($8.00)

I’ve talked and raved about this powder a couple times on my blog, but that’s simply because it is just so amazing for the price point.

It comes in a variety of shade ranges, so no need to worry about not finding a shade that would work for you. I used to be a die-hard lover of the Sasha buttercup setting powder, however, when this came out, I gave up on the Sasha powder. This is a lot less yellow and actually looks very pretty on a variety of skin tones.

  • NYX professional micro-brow pencil (5.99)

makeup products under $10 nyx micro brow

This is literally the perfect dupe for the Anastasia brow wiz. Why spend $18 dollars on a brow wiz when you can have it for less than $10?

This brow pencil comes in a variety of shades and glides on very smoothly. Unlike a lot of brow pencils that are very sturdy and difficult to blend out, this does a great job at filling in sparse hairs on the brows without applying much pressure.

  • Catrice Prime & Fine Setting Spray ($7.99)

This is hands down an amazing setting spray to pick up for less than $10. It offers a nice dewy finish to the skin without soaking up any product.

Plus, it’s great at keeping your make up application put all day long. First time I gave this a try, I was absolutely amazed.

I personally think this is a great dupe for the Mac fix plus. Besides being an amazing setting spray, it’s also great at enhancing the pigment of shimmery shadows. There’s just so much to love about this setting spray.

Be sure to check out colourpop for glosses, I promise you won’t regret it.
