Default Favorite Cheap brand

What is your favorite cheap makeup brand? I sometimes don't feel like shelling out 15 for a lipstick I might not like. Recently I found NYC as a cheap pretty good colored lipstick and Milani for eyeliners.

I love wet n wild eyeshadows, blushes and nail polish. And it's SO cheap!

NYX and Wet N Wild... hands down. Pigmentation is great for the prices. And both lines carry a lot of dupe colors for high end brand items.

I agree with Marah... NYX and Wet n Wild. And also ELF. They are all great with really good products. My favorites are the eyeshadows from all three brands. They are really great. I also really like the NYX foundations and the NYX and Wet n Wild blushes and ELF has some really good gel eyeliner and face primer

I agree, I have NYX lipglosses that are as good, if not better than MAC ones I've owned. And their eyeshadows are as pigmented as the Urban Decay ones I own. And they dupe high end colors SO WELL. ELF has some amazing brushes, almost all of mine are from them at this point and I don't think I've spent over $15 on a full set!

+1 to all of this. NYX & ELF are awesome! I like some WnW, but not as much as the other two.

FYI for all the drugstore makeup lovers...CVS is running an unadertised clearance sell....a lot of items are 50-75% off. I just racked up on nail polish, eye shadow brushes, and eye makeup remover. Also, if you scan your CVS card, you can get a $4 off $12 beauty purchase coupon (the coupon prints DAILY, keep scanning your card until it tells you there are no more deals for the day) so you can really rack up if you play your cards right.

The blog Nouveau Cheap has a running master list of all the items that readers have reported are on sale. Also just a note, the CVS near my house didn't have up tags, but the items scanned for the clearance price so use that red box scanner!!!
