Gimmicks can be beauty budget-busters

Tempted by that vibrating mascara or spray-on foundation? "Gimmicks grab your attention so you think they've improved the product. But gimmicks usually cost more and don't provide better results, so they are a complete waste of money," says Begoun.

"Don't get sucked in by clever TV infomercials either," says Pasquale Caselle, master colorist and hairstylist for It&ly Hairfashion. "It's a specifically written script portrayed by models and actors so you think you must have that product. Remember, no product is good for everybody all the time, as they would have you believe."

Woroch also cautions against daily deal savings at spas and salons. "If the timing or location is bad, you'll use up your savings in gas or not use the deal at all. Search the service provider on Yelp.com for reviews and call up the salon yourself to see if they seem overwhelmed by the deal, have a long waiting list or are rude to you," she says.

If you have unused deals, you can look into reselling them on the Internet as well.
