10 Beauty Bargains Under $10

Published in: Beauty Tips, Makeup, News

Victoria’s Secret Beauty is having a downright fantastic clearance sale on several high-end makeup brands, some as much as 75 percent off! My little black heart fluttered when I spotted all the products by Anna Sui.

The sale lasts until items run out of stock; when I checked a minute ago there were still lots of different product colors available.


Exercise your right to haul!

Anna Sui Eye Color, $5.99 (originally $12) – I’ve been a bit more adventurous with my powder eyeshadow colors lately. I might pick up a few bold shades.


Very Sexy Makeup Long-Wear Eye Cream, $5.99 (originally $12) – I like layering cream eyeshadows beneath powder shadows to amplify color and add dimension. The shade I’ve really got my eye on is Stay Up, a turquoise blue.


Vincent Longo La Dolce Vita Lash Tips, $5.99 (originally $14) – One of my goals this summer is to get better at applying false lashes. I love that these look glamorous without going over the top.


The Balm Stainiac, $5.99 (originally $14) – This multitasking, water-based gel doubles as a light cheek and lip stain. Beauty Queen, a bright hot pink, has my name written all over it. πŸ™‚


Vincent Longo Lipstain SPF 15 Lipstick, $8.99 (originally $23) – A dewy, moisturizing lipstick with SPF? I want Foolish Virgin (LOL, someone in their marketing department has a sense of humor), a sheer pink.


Anna Sui Rouge S Shimmer Lipstick, $6.99 (originally $20) – I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I want all of these shimmery pink, coral and nude lipsticks. Isn’t the purple packaging cute?


Lipmann Collection Nail Polish Sampler Kit, $6.99 (originally $21) – Brides-to-be, take note. These mini-polish kits would make nice additions to your bridesmaid gift bags! There are two sets, one with pink and red shades; the second for a French manicure.


Anna Sui Nail Color, $4.99 (originally $13) – I’m still in a crazy nail color phase. I can see myself wearing 611 (a glittery red-orange shade) on my toes this summer.


Vincent Longo Diamond Lip Gloss $8.99 (originally $22) – I have a major weakness for lipglosses, and these are no exception. Coral Cabana, Lavender Mews and Berry Crush all caught my eye.


Very Sexy Brilliant Lip Shine, $7.99 (originally $12) – Quiver (a gold) is the only one of these ultra-shiny, shimmery lipglosses on sale. Good thing it’s the one I want!


These were just some of the products that caught my eye. Do you see anything you like? Check out the Victoria’s Secret Beauty website and tell me if anything strikes your fancy.


Lawdy, my allergies were on overdrive today. Somebody pass me the Kleenex. *achoo!*

    I love sales as VS, especially when beauty products go on sale. I’m interested in trying the Vincent Longo lip & cheek gel stain in Coral. I have never tried lip stains before, but the Coral is so pretty I can’t resist.

    To answer your question on why I wear black/dark colors to work: No, I don’t work at MAC or any make-up counter (though I wish I did). I work as a sales associate in a massage/spa. Dark and neutral colors keep the place looking very professional πŸ™‚

    I have those vincent logo lashes! They last SO LONG, and I abuse them and they’re still intact! ZOMG I’m So buying those anna sui nail polishes! Plus they don’t smell like nail polish either! I really like her products but the rose oil smell gets me me at times. for some reason I have a horrid allergic reaction to some of her products…
    I’m so getting that VS lipgloss you blogged previously that was similar to the chanel one!

    ooh i have the anna sui lipstick, i love it so much because it glides on really nicely, and the packaging is SO NICE.

    next time i’m definately going to get some victoria’s secret beauty products!

  7. tricia says:

    a while back i purchased the very sexy makeup long wear eye cream shadow in a purple color, and it so burned the heck out of my eyes. i have no idea why. i have used no name cheap drugstore makeup, designer makeup and everything in between, and no makeup ever burned my eyes. only this one form vs, and when i went to the store they did not want me to exchange for another product so i was stuck with it, but never used it again.

  8. tricia says:

    oh u should check http://www.retailmenot.com for victoria secret codes, some are for free shipping, other times it is for free items, or extra discount off. you can also find codes there for other online stores

  9. Glosslizard says:

    I have to admit, I have a strange aversion to my makeup telling me it’s very sexy! It just annoys me! That said, that Anna Sui lipstick looks worth having for the packaging alone (and that’s a rare statement for me)! I’ve tried the VL glosses, and they’re a little on the thin side, but have beautiful payoff! I was sampling Lavender Mews at Sephora some months ago and was quite taken by it! I ended up going with another color, so perhaps I’ll grab LM at this fab price!

    Hope you have a great Saturday, and stop sneezing soon! πŸ™‚

  10. Dao says:

    thanks Tricia for the website. I found some good coupon codes for VS.

  11. Dao says:

    Hi Karen,

    Do you have the Viva Glam V lipstick or lipgloss? Have you brought empty containers to Back 2 MAC? I brought 6 containers yesterday and got a free lipstick but the sales associate did not give me the carton. She also said I was not supposed to pop the pan out of the container.

    I also got Prrr lipglass but I’m not feeling it. May go back and exchange for Viva glam V lipstick since I kept on picking it up and putting it down yesterday πŸ™‚

  12. Jax says:

    thank you karen!

    3 different anna sui nail polish.

    i even went and browsed through their sale panties. HAHA.

    good looking out girl! <3

    i know im taking full advantage of the sun!!!

  13. gracee says:

    hey thanks karen! i remember last year when they had an awesome sale i picked up the VS angels heavenly perfume set for only $20, a scrub and great smelling lotion and some sparkly bare bronze suntan lotion!
    i love VS sales!

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Joanna,

    Oh, that’s cool! Do you like what you do?

    I have a coral fetish too. I should probably chill for a bit on the coral lipstick/gloss/blush thing, but I just love it so much for the summer!

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Paris B.,

    Nice! Glad to hear that you think so highly of them. I love the rose pattern on the pan, especially.

  16. Karen says:

    Hi Ethereal Prey,

    Oh sweet… I dunno if you’ll like it but I hope you do! It’s a pretty good bargain, imho.

  17. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    I know, right? Are you gonna haul? πŸ˜‰

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    Thanks, I’ll take that box with the sparkly stickers! What are you allergic to? Grasses and certain trees get me every time come spring.

  19. Karen says:

    Hi Lindsay,

    The Anna Sui packaging on the lipstick is why I wanted it! So pretty. I love the dark purple color and the rose on top.

  20. Karen says:

    Hi Tricia,

    Oh no! That’s too bad. I’ve had that experience with a few random eye creams but never with makeup. I’ll cross my fingers and hop;e it doesn’t happen. Oh – and thanks for the link to that site, it’s great.

  21. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    I’m feeling a lil’ better today. I’ve been inside for most of the day and now I’m very, very, very medicated. How’s your day been?

  22. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    I don’t like Prrr… it makes me look washed out. Have you tried Nymphette? It’s a warmer alternative.

    Yup, I’ve tried all the Viva Glam lipsticks and a few of the glosses. I love ’em! Also, it’s been awhile since I’ve done back to MAC and I’m severely over-due. I have a lot of empty brush cleaner bottles that need to go back. Last time I went I got Syrup lipstick. πŸ™‚

    How’s your day been?

  23. Karen says:

    Hi Jax,

    You’re welcome! Yay, you hauled. What colors did you get?

  24. Erin says:

    Ahhh you enabled me to order some stuff from VS Beauty LOL! Thanks a lot!

  25. Karen says:

    You’re welcome, Erin! That’s what friends are for, girl! πŸ™‚
