2 Unbeatable Budget Beauty Deals

Yes, we have found even more beauty sales with no distinguishable cause or reason behind them! This time, two already extremely affordable beauty brands, BH Cosmetics and e.l.f., have given us two different, amazing deals within the last 12 hours. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to try out either one of these inexpensive yet highly reputable beauty brands, get on it because the clock is ticking!

BH Cosmetics: 24-Hour Flash Sale – 20% off $25 or More

BH Cosmetics Neutral and Smokey 28 Eye PalettesNeutral Eyes 28 Palette ($12 $9.60) & Smokey Eyes 28 Palette ($12 $9.60)

It just so happened that not 15 minutes before I found this sale, I was thinking about which of the BH Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes I should try first. I’ve never tried this brand, but after countless reviews from YouTube beauty gurus, I’ve decided that it’s worth the $12 to find out (yes, for an entire palette). Then, as if the broke-ass gods were listening – this sale starts. BH Cosmetics is giving you 20% off of orders over $25 with the code DONTMISSIT – and a free gift with every purchase!

I think I’ll be picking up the Smokey 28 Palette ($12 $9.60), the Neutral 28 palette ($12 $9.60) and maybe the Pride + Prejudice + Zombies palette ($12.50 $9.50). (Yes, each of them remind me a little of the Modern Renaissance dupes!)

If you’ve been loving the look of the new Urban Decay Moondust palette, definitely check out BH Cosmetics’ Galaxy Chic palette ($12 $9.60), full of colorful metallic shadows.

Pop Art 10 Piece Brush Set ($20 $16) & Eco-Luxe 10 Piece Brush Set ($12 $9.60) & Rose Gold 15 Piece Brush Set, ($20 $16)

I’ve also heard that their brushes are worth checking out, and at under $5 per brush, it looks like I’ll be throwing a blending brush into my cart, too. They also have really cute and clever brush sets that come with various storage containers. You can get a classic brush roll, or they have some awesome brush sets that can be stored in a cylindrical tube! Brush sets are typically $20 and under.

The sale is pretty much today only – check how much time is left on the BH Cosmetics Big Sale page

This is a brand that knows the path to my heart: $1 beauty products. I’ve been trying out e.l.f. Cosmetics for years, and they have some really fantastic products! I’ve definitely come across some duds, as well, but when your initial investment is $1-6, it’s hard to be too upset about it.

Plus, thanks to e.l.f.’s status as a drugstore favorite, there is ample documentation of which products are worth buying and which are worth passing up. Currently, I’m enamored with the e.l.f. Translucent Loose HD Powder ($6) which I use for light baking under my eyes and all-over finishing powder. It’s awesome, lightweight, doesn’t cake and prevents creasing. What more could you want for $6?

Also worth trying: the single blush colors, eyeliner pencils, and skin primers. I am dying to try the Blemish Control Primer ($6) with Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Oil, and Vitamin E! Additionally, they have a very convenient and very clever Lip Exfoliator ($3) that comes in a bullet-style lipstick tube and applies like, well, a lipstick. Way less messy and way more fun!

elf Best Sellers

Right now, e.l.f. is running two amazing deals: free shipping on all orders over $20 (code HELLO), and free mystery gift on orders over $10 (code SURPRISE2). Let’s talk about the free gift since free shipping is a pretty obvious perk.

It’s actually a gift bag full of some of e.l.f.’s best sellers! The overall value of this free gift is $20, and considering that most of e.l.f.’s products are between $1 and $3… that bag is probably pretty damn good. The minimum purchase is so affordable that it’s really low-risk, too! If only you could couple it with the free shipping coupon… (You can’t. I tried. Several times.)


Tell me what you bought in the comments if you end up using either of these amazing deals! In addition, please let me know if you ever come across a crazy good deal like this. I’ll share it with the #BrokeLife family! Being broke together is always more fun.
