Despite our best and most frugal intentions, holiday shopping can burn a giant hole in our wallets. There are just so many tempting offers, and often we shell out top dollar for the best beauty products.

Being the generous souls we are, we compiled some of the best beauty finds under $10 so you can enjoy the wealth without the debt!
