5 Must-Have Beauty Products on Any Budget

Month after month, beauty products galore fill up store shelves and pop out at us from magazine advertisements, leading us to make purchases of anything and everything. Thankfully, beauty editors at fashion magazines do most of the work for us, testing and trying products before recommending them to their faithful readers. No matter what your budget is, here are 5 must-have beauty products any time of the year:

L'Oreal Paris HIP Bright Shadow Duo: Under $10, L'Oreal's HIP eyeshadows come in vibrant colors like pink, purple and blue. Even though the colors are bright, you can apply them lightly for a sheer day look or opaque for an evening style. 

Essie Nail Polish: For only $8, get a professional quality nail polish in a variety of colors. For a classic look year-round, look for a light or neutral pink polish.

Olay Definity Restorative Night Cream: For those who spend large amounts of money on expensive night creams, beauty editors suggest using the Olay night cream for $21. The product, used each night, adds collagen to the skin and brightens up the face with glucosamine.

L'Oreal True Match: If you want a foundation that matches your exact skin tone, L'Oreal offers 24 different shades to ensure you never have that masked appearance again. The $9 foundation stays on all day and is easy to blend in. The collection also contains True Match concealer and powder. 

CoverGirl Outlast Smoothwear Lip Color: I'm more of a lip gloss kind of girl, but when I want dramatic lips I wear CoverGirl's Outlast Lip Color. There are dozens of colors to choose from for only $10, and the product features a clear top coat to leave lips shiny and moisturized all day long without fading.
