Beauty Mavens

 

While we certainly lust over LaMer, we also know a diamond in the rough when we see one. This week, we asked the lovely ladies of Colorado to dish on their favorite, must-have, can’t possibly live without beauty products.  The caveat? It had to be under $10.  Here, we reveal the lotions, potions, creams and cosmetics that keep these mile-high mavens glowing, without breaking the bank.
