Best Makeup Products Under $5

Best Makeup Products Under $5 is a post I’ve been wanting to create for a while. I’m a true believer in not having to pay astronomical prices for great quality makeup products. While there are a ton of drugstore products I make sure to stay clear of (I have sensitive skin) I have used and loved all the products above and they get the Mash Elle seal of approval! Enjoy the list of best makeup products under $5 and let me know if there are any products I should add! best makeup under five dollars for sensitive skin - Best Makeup Products Under $5 by popular Orlando beauty blogger Mash Elle

    Hey, thanks for the great cheap makeup list! My current cheap faves are Wet n Wild color icon in Rose in the Air (I got it for $5 on amazon), ELF must have mattes palettes (I got them on sale for $4 each; they are usually around ten bucks), Essence Lash Princess mascara (three dollars I think?)
