Everyone is looking to save money right now, and you can do it if you invest a little time to search out the right products.
One hint to remember is that many drugstore brands are manufactured by the same companies that sell high end designer cosmetics. For example, Lancome is owned by the the L’Oreal Group.
Here are five makeup products under $5 to get you started.
