10 Under $10: Spring Beauty Must-Haves
1. The Art of Spring Collection by essie
Not your grandmother's pastels, these springy shades ($8.00/each, essieshop.com) range from chiffon pink to fiery red. Our personal favorite? Tart Deco, a creamy cantaloupe hue.
2. ONE Hand & Body Lotion
Shea butter and essential oils nourish parched skin; a recyclable aluminum tube soothes environmentally conscious minds ($8.99, target.com for stores).
3. Neutrogena MoistureShine Gloss
Each of the 14 silky, antioxidant-rich shades ($8.99, drugstore.com) leave lips moist and shiny, not dried-out out and crackly like some we've used. The crisp berry scent is a sweet bonus.
4. Frizz-Ease Shampoo & Conditioner
With this spin-off range from John Frieda ($6.49/each, ulta.com), frizz-fighting now starts in the shower! Olive oil and essential proteins hydrate and repair brittle strands.
5. Victoria's Secret Fragrances
In three distinct and equally appealing scents ($10/each, victoriassecret.com), these handy rollerball vials are tiny enough to stow in even the most compact clutch.
6. Avon Ultra Color Rich Mega Lipstick
The iridescent pearls in each of the ten highly-pigmented shades ($6.50, avon.com) work with your natural lip color for a universally flattering, non-clownish finish.
7. Aveeno Nourish + Style Shine Cream
A pea-sized dollop of this lightweight cream (6.49, drugstore.com) tames flyaways and deflates pouf through any manner of spring showers-without leaving hair overly drenched.
8. Physicians Formula Mineral Concealer
This trio of gentle concealers ($8.99, ulta.com) masks blemishes with a rainbow approach: Yellow hides dark circles, orange tints imperfections, and pink adds an eye-catching highlight.
9. RoC Pore Minimizing Cream Cleanser
Tiny beads work with alpha hydroxy acids to slough away dead skin cells and leave your complexion taut and gleaming-not red and roughed-up ($9.99, drugstore.com).
10. Maybelline New York Mascara
A micro-fiber basecoat tames clumpy lashes, while the other end of the wand contains a lengthening mascara ($7.99, ulta.com). Read: Big, vampy fringe without the hassle of falsies.
