And- I forgot to say- I love maybelline's gel eyeliner too.
And Australias eye primer, of all things! Never thought I would recommend an Australis brand, but I haven't found a better one yet.
Now I'll stop talking to myself.

I love Australis nude foundation. About $14 from Target and Priceline.
It's about the only foundation that really suits my skin colour.

Lipglosses are more my thing these days and there are plenty of cheap ones around. It's easier to apply than lipstick, you can do it without a mirror.
Eyshadows, I recently bought a compact of 4 lots of 3 different colours, it was $8 by BYS. Love it!
I also love the eyeshadows and blush from the body shop $14.95

I'm very impressed with the richness of the pigment used in a really really cheap brand sold at Target and some Priceline stores called Essence.
You can get individual shadows for under $5 each and unlike a lot of cheap brands that only provide a really sheer wash of a colour, the colours are pretty damn vibrant!
I will also vouch for the same branded mascara, blush and pencil eyeliner (I have a purple and a brown in this brand, both are great).
They have polishes which are nice but they do tend to get gluggy in the bottle fairly easily... but they're under $5 each too so who really cares. lol. Good if you change your polish daily like I do. Their quick-dry topcoat is impressive for its tiny price!
Their lipstick and gloss and is also reasonable. Not great, but good enough I guess.
I wouldn't really recommend their foundation though...
I think Rimmel's Matte foundation is quite good though. It's about $15 a tube.
I threw out a lot of my stuff and needed to rebuild quickly (I HAVE to wear a full face of make up every day I go to college) but cheaply... and I never spend a fortune on shadows... because in all honesty, no shadow is worth $30 or more per pot.
Maybelline's Baby Lips balm is such a lovely smooth balm as well, and I Just adore it!

I use all sorts.
Avon is great for foundation,I get it on special for under $20 (my MIL sells it)
I also use Australis Powder which is like as cheap as $8 on special,its awesome!
Aldi also sells really cheap makeup,I have only used the mascara so far,its only $5 and pretty good!

Thanks everyone! I'll be kept busy checking all of this out!
How does everyone go with their eyeshadow? Mine seems to crease up a bit ... but then it could be just because I'm old
