Beauty on a Budget

Productsfor10orLess (800x313)

We all want to look great, but sometimes we must stick to a tight budget.

Not everyone has hundreds of dollars lying around to spend on skin care and makeup!

I know many women, especially moms, who after looking over the budget for the month say to themselves,

“Ok maybe next month I’ll be able to get the lipstick that I wanted”

Every month it’s the same thing.

Well maybe it doesn’t have to be that way.

With Mary Kay’s Beauty on a Budget section you can get tons of products to fit your monthly budget.

Like the products for $10 or less!

Brighten up your lips with the

Mary Kay At Play Jelly Lip gloss! For $10











I use these almost everyday because they serve three purposes.

  1. They keep my lips moist
  2. They give my lips a nice shine (just like a gloss) and
  3. They put some color on my lips. (not all gloss products do that).

This way I don’t need to have a chap stick, lipstick and lip gloss.

I just walk around with this in my purse.



Want to Stop the appearance of oil on those special occasions or just on a rushed day with

Beauty Blotters Oil Absorbing Tissues for just $6


I used these for the firs time on my wedding day!

I  wondered what was keeping me back from using it all the time.

You know when you put on your make up for the day and you’re out shopping,

rather than “touching” up with powder to remove the shine of oil that will naturally build up on your face,

Just pull these babies out of your handbag and tap your face lightly!

Kept my face looking great on my wedding day and it didn’t break the bank!


Here’s my last recommendation for a budget friendly item

It’s the Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color.


Now you’re probably thinking

“But Hilary I will need more than one!!!!”

I have a secret for you  – if you pick the right color all you need after that is mascara.

Remember if you’re on a budget, you’re looking for the cheapest way to still look good.

You don’t have to be a beauty queen – that’s when you’ll want to get all three colors and shadowing etc.

We’re everyday women!

We just want to look presentable in public!

You don’t have to break your monthly budget to that!

For $7 you can get a MK Mineral Eye Color that suits your skin color.

I recommend on that shimmers a little! 😉 😉


Take a browse of all the products less than $10.

These that I’ve highlighted are what I deem the essentials,

But I’m sure you’ll find more.

Have a great day!

      Mary Kay has a great product and I love her story. I’ve used the beauty blotters and they work wonders.
