10 Under $10: Spring Beauty Must-Haves
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
