Saving money on makeup is undoubtedly great, but going from site to site to find low prices can be frustrating. With shipping fees and free shipping minimums, ordering from numerous sites can really start to add up.
Fortunately, there are a handful of makeup retailers that have consistently low prices across the board. You can find most or all of the items you need on one site, so you only have to place one order at a time.
In this post, I’m covering seven different makeup companies with price points of $10 or less. These makeup websites offer cheap makeup online, but the quality is far from low.
You can get the looks you want without site-hopping or spending a fortune. Each of these sites offers everything from makeup brushes to eyeshadow palettes to lipstick. To get you started, I’ve listed some of each site’s best-selling cosmetics as well as some money saving tips.

The brand’s tagline is “The first & only $1 online beauty shop.” In addition to their own brand, they carry inexpensive cosmetics and beauty items from other affordable makeup brands.

Their product packaging gives off a sleek, high-end vibe. This brand is well-known for 1) their low price point and 2) creating high-quality dupes of expensive eyeshadow palettes. I’ve accumulated a fair collection of their products, and they have yet to disappoint.

Bonus – Amazon Makeup Sellers For $10 Or Less
Before we finish things up, I wanted to include some Amazon-based retailers with price points of $10 or less. You may notice that many of these stores are also listed above. However, ordering from Amazon instead can be convenient for two reasons.
- If you have an Amazon Prime Membership, you get free two-day shipping without meeting any shipping minimums.
- If you don’t have a Prime membership, you can mix and match all of the brands you like to meet the shipping minimum.
These two factors alone make this choice pretty frugal. So if you’d prefer to stick with Amazon, you can still get the cosmetics mentioned in this post. The prices may differ from the retailer’s direct website, but the overall price points are still similar Here are your Amazon based options:
- NYX Cosmetics on Amazon
- e.l.f. Cosmetics on Amazon
- Wet n’ Wild Beauty on Amazon
- ColourPop on Amazon
- NYC (New York Color) on Amazon
- L.A. Colors on Amazon
- Coastal Scents on Amazon
- Rimmel London on Amazon
- Sally Hansen on Amazon
- L.A. Girl on Amazon
- W7 on Amazon
