11 Cult Beauty Products That Cost Less Than $5

Recently, I went on a weekend trip and left my entire makeup bag at home. After a mild freak out, I made my friend drive me to the nearest drugstore where I was able to find a few of my favorite cheap makeup products. But don't get me wrong, these products are only cheap in price. Aside from the packaging, you would never know that these products cost less than $5 each. I bought entire new collection of makeup for the price of the Chanel powder I left at home. Even after returning from my trip, I've kept a lot of these products in my beauty routine. They are that good.

Click through the slideshow to see the best makeup products under $5.
