Celebrities’ Favorite 10 Products Under $10

Jessica Beil

Pore”fectly Polished

When it comes to fighting dirt and grime, Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham turns to Bioré Pore Unclogging Scrub ($5.99, Walgreens.com). Who needs those fancy facials anyway?

Cool As A Cucumber

We’ve watched Whitney Port go from being an intern at Teen Vogue to a designer of her own fashion line, but that doesn’t mean this Los Angeles native doesn’t still appreciate a good deal. When taking off makeup, Whitney uses Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes ($5.99, Walmart.com).

Heathy Hair Must-Have

Not only is Kyle Richards an aunt to Paris Hilton, but she’s a cast member on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, so she’s surrounded by her fair share of luxury items. When it comes to her long flowing locks, Kyle says no to those over-priced hair products and yes to Pantene Pro-V ($6.99, Drugstore.com).

MInty Freshness

When dating a hottie like George Clooney, one should always be prepared for a make-out session at any moment. That must be why Stacey Keibler uses C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine No. 502 ($7.50, Bigelowchemists.com), which is a mint-infused lip balm.

Shailene’s Favorite Soap

If you watch Pretty Little Liars, then you know how amazing Shay Mitchell’s skin looks. While we assumed she was probably hitting the spa in between takes, it turns out she uses her handy Soap & Glory Off Your Face™ Wipes Cleansing Cloths ($10, Sephora.com).

 
Jessica Beil

Blonde In A Box

Megan Hilty’s bright blonde hair can be seen on episodes of Smash each week, so we were surprised to find out she keeps her color fresh with an item that can be found at the drugstore. John Frieda Precision Foam Colour Salon Blends ($12.99, Drugstore.com) is technically over $10, yet still incredibly inexpensive.

 
Jessica Beil

Help For Hands

What do you get when you combine anti-bacterial soap with a great smelling scent? Leanne Rimes’ favorite Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial in Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin ($1.50, Bathandbodyworks.com).

 
Jessica Beil

Classic & Clean

Olivia Wilde isn’t shy about sharing her favorite skin product. “I’ve recently shifted to the cheapest possible skin stuff and it works. It’s amazing — Cetaphil ($8.75, Soap.com). And every dermatologist my entire life has told me to use it, and for some reason I thought they were in on some conspiracy, and I thought, that’s not real. It couldn’t be! It’s so cheap!”

 
 
Jessica Beil

Little Drops Of Heaven

Ok, we might have cheated a little with this product. Nia Vardalos’ favorite skincare item, Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance Beauty Drops, is actually $19.99, but since it’s sold at drugstores, we just had to include it!

 
Last but not least 
Jessica Beil

Organize In Style

So now that you know what products to buy, you need a place to store them. Bethenny Frankel has made millions with Skinnygirl drinks, but she heads to Target when it comes to buying her favorite makeup bag. Sonia Kashuk bags can range in price, but this adorable one is only $5.99!

Its time for Halloween costumes & Makeup!

In my opinion, you can never outgrow dressing up! Halloween’s almost here, so bring out your best costumes. If you’re still on the fence about what costume you’ll be wearing, why not try something different this year? Look fashionable on this spooktacular holiday! I’ve found an amazing example of a vamp lace dress you could dawn, perfect for Halloween.

With a pair of funky shoes, you’ll be all halloweened up in no time! Add on stockings or tights for that effortless chic look. Oh, and we all know that accessories make an outfit, so add all your gold and black jewelry and you’ll be sorted.

Onto the makeup… Go crazy! Its all about having fun. Do what you want, how you like. But just don’t end up looking like a drag queen! I know its Halloween and the scarier you look, the better, but just don’t overdo it. If you want to do scary makeup, go ALL the way, and put on a scary costume! Here’s an example of cool makeup:
