Budget Beauty: 15 Under $15

If you're obsessed with all things beauty but are on a budget, check out this months favs all under $15!

Take it all off with in one sweep with NEUTROGENA Deep Clean Oil-Free Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes/$8.

Long-wearing (up to 8-hours) velvety soft shadows that look like pressed loose pigments. A new addition to the Infallible collection from L'OREAL PARIS. My first introduction to the Infallible Eye Shadow was at a L'OREAL Sublime Sun Care launch last year. We created the perfect sun kissed looks with Sahara Treasure and Bronzed Divine (pictured left). It's an amazing piece of product for only $7.95.

A detoxing mask infused with orange and bergamot that draws out impurities and absorbs excess oil. Cleans and clears skin for a brighter complexion. FORMULA 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Ultra Cleansing Mud Mask/$6. Left my skin feeling fresh and hydrated. I really like it!

SHEA MOISTURE Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo. Hydrates, smooths and repairs dry hair with minerals, Rosemary extract, Sea Kelp and Shea butter. Upon contact with wet hair, you feel the difference...immediately softens hair/$9.99 at Walgreens, Target and Duane Reade.

Makes lips softer, improves texture and color of our lips within seven days in six pretty colors. Even protects with SPF 20 -- NEUTROGENA Revitalizing Lip Balm SPF 20. Can be used as often as you like/$8.99 at drugstores.

I fell in love with the opaque creamy finishes of MAC Cosmetics Tour de Fabulous Tinted Lip Glass in Style Packed (a vibrant hot pink) and of course, Knockout (bold glossy orange)/$14.50.

LAVANILLA Healthy Body Butter To Go -- ultra rich body butter that's naturally formulated with Shea and cocoa butters, anti-oxidants from the Gogi berry and other minerals that are delicious for the skin. At Sephora/$10.

Oil-free body scrub with salicylic acid and green tea extract treat breakouts on your back, shoulders, and chest. Gently exfoliates and reduces redness. ST. IVES Naturally Clear Body Scrub Green Tea/$6.19 at drugstore.com.

ORGANIC ROOT Stimulator Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner Deep penetrating conditioner rebuilds damaged hair and restores moisture. Up to $9.99 at beauty supply stores.

MAYBELLINE Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Gel Shadow Smudge proof cream shadows that can be worn alone or act as base for powders...think MUFE Aqua Creams or MAC Paint Pots. Any shadow that won't crease works for me. Ten shades at $6.99 each.

Falsies add instant glam to your look. ARDELL Lashes have a lash for every occasion. Lightweight, reusable and easy to apply (even comes with a "starter kit"). I like the #110/Demi Lash./$4.99 at CVS.

OPI nails it every time with the gorgeous collaborations they create. Check out the Nicki Minaj Nail Lacquer 2012 Collection. Pink Friday and the Super Bass Shatter are my favs/$8.50.

Take away the shine with PALLADIO Rice Paper Tissues with Rice Powder. For approximately $4, double-sided oil-absorbing tissues made with natural rice gently attack your shiny T-zone. Available at Ulta locations.

Oral hygiene products get recycled -- PRESERVE Toothbrush handles are made from recycled yogurt cups (cool, right?)! Sign up for their subscription program and every three months, a new toothbrush is delivered to your doorstep/$15 annually. A partnered company grinds it into plastic lumber for picnic tables and park benches. I like the tiered bristles (yes, they're new) and the easy-to-grip shape. Plus their BPA free!

SCHICK QUATTRO for Women Disposable Razor is $7.50 for a pack of three. Ultra-thin blades easily glide over skin for a close smooth shave. With two conditioning strips and a sweet raspberry scented handle. What's not to love?
