October is a great month for cheap beauty, not only because all the fun seasonal products are coming out now, but also because the absurdly inexpensive Halloween makeup that's on the shelves can be surprisingly trendy and high quality. The granddaddy of the cheap Halloween makeup lines is, of course, Fantasy Makers, Wet 'n' Wild's special effects line. This year so far, my biggest steal has been Extreme Blue Monster's Ball Polish, which is exactly the shade of blue that was all over the runways last month. I'm also a fan of the line's red body wand, which has a consistency similar to Tarte cheek stain, a color a lot like Benetint, and costs less than $2 at my Walgreens. The brand also makes what are by far the cheapest feather fake eyelashes on the market. The only catch is that the stores carrying them don't have them listed on their websites, so you're gonna have to go scope them out yourselves. It's totally worth it, though. There's bargains in them there jack-o'-lanterns, ladies — go get 'em.
