Don’t get us wrong, we love to relish in a pricey beauty splurge every now and then—but there’s really nothing in life more satisfying than a great beauty steal that you can re-buy again and again without batting an eye. The thrill of the hunt might have something to do with it. Finding those little diamond in the rough deals can take work (albeit work that we’re happy to perform)—so when you find a really amazing product, it’s extra special.

Save your cash for the holidays: 7 STYLECASTER editors dished on the fall beauty products around $10 they swear by, including a suede lipstick that rivals its luxe predecessor, the skin-care winners we go back to every time, and hair mask that one curly-haired editor buys in bulk. 31 $10 winners, ahead!

Maybelline Facestudio Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter

This chubby little stick is like highlighting for dummies: you just swipe it across your cheekbones, orbital bones, cupid’s bow and down the bridge of your nose, massage in the creamy formula and instantly start glowing like you’ve been lit from within.”–Cristina Velocci, managing editor

CoverGirl truNaked Roses Eyeshadow Palette

“I recently switched over to this rose-gold shadow palette from a pricier designer compact and am already scraping the bottom of my go-to base color’s pan.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Original

“I like to wash my curls less frequently when the weather gets cooler (cold air=dry curls), so dry shampoo becomes by BFF. This drugstore dry shampoo is powdery as hell, which is a good thing, because it actually soaks up the oil, rather than just texturizing my hair.”–Chloe Metzger, beauty editor

Burt’s Bees Original Beeswax Lip Balm

“Anyone who knows me knows that I’m genuinely obsessed with this hydrating lip balm, to the point where I panic if I don’t have one near me. Currently, I have two tubes in my purse, two in my desk, one in my nightstand, another in the kitchen, and one in my gym bag. Like I said—obsessed.”–Chloe Metzger, beauty editor

CoverGirl Perfect Blend Eyeliner in Black Brown

“I’m more of a liquid liner fan for the summer, since liquid formulas tend to be longer-lasting, but as soon as the humidity drops for winter, I break out a smoky eye. This pencil liner is precise yet creamy, and it gives you a good 30 seconds of blending time before it sets all day.”–Chloe Metzger, beauty editor

This was the first moisturizer I ever used it was something my Mom turned me on to in junior high. I’ve tried countless others and always come back to this one. It’s a classic.”–Christina Grasso, social media manager

The best mascara for the times when extra-volume, extra-curl, extra-bold isn’t appropriate. It’s the perfect mix of just enough eye drama while still being low key.”–Samantha Gilbert, editorial intern

Maybelline Volum’Express The Falsises Waterprof Mascara

“I only wear waterproof mascara for obvious reasons, and this one's my favorite! When I was abroad last semester, I ran out of my only tube and couldn’t find it anywhere. Safe to say, when I got back to the U.S. I was extremely happy to be reunited with it.” –Corinna Wong, editorial intern

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus

My favorite daily go-to when I want a little more than a basic Chapstick, but not a full on lip color. It’s comfortable, hydrating, and the colors are perfectly subtle. My fav is Hibiscus.”–Samantha Gilbert, editorial intern

Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Glow Lip Balm in My Pink

"I always rave about Baby Lips, because it’s the best. I discovered it when my perennially stylish friend swiped it on one day after brunch, and her lips looked instantly fuller. I’ve never looked back. I literally always have it on me. This particular color, the unfortunately named “My Pink,” is my fave." –Bibi Deitz, news editor

Alba Botanica Emollient Sunscreen Pure Lavender SPF 45

"This sunscreen is my jam. I don’t always take the time to use a lotion-based SPF—I prefer sprays—but if my skin’s feeling dry, I’ll take a few minutes and use this head-to-toe before hitting the beach. It smells amazing—and it leaves my skin super soft. Plus, it’s all-natural." –Bibi Deitz, news editor
