So they're rich and famous, but celebrities still love a bargain. Or maybe they realize that just because something is inexpensive, it doesn't mean it's not good quality.

We could have told them that, right?

Rihanna, Nicole Richie, Anne Hathaway, Madonna -- all these women have favorite beauty products that can be found in a drugstore or bargain shop.

Want to know who uses what?

Elle's Beauty Spotlight is on Celebrity Cheap Sheet, a great who's using what on-the-cheap guide.

It's Nicole Richie who uses Sunsilk Waves of Envy Sea Mist ($2.79 on sale from -- the sea salt in the product gives her hair those beachy waves. I want!

Anne Hathaway loves Aquaphor Healing Ointment ($5.99 from -- it's a good lip balm (plus good for the body), but also works well as a lipstick base. Good to know.

Rihanna's locks get the moisture and strength they need from Marula's Natural Therapy Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner ($7 each, check site for stores). I could use a deep conditioning.

Madonna's S-shaped wavy hair is achieved by using Revlon's 3-Barrel Jumbo Waver ($24.95 from Amazon). I have this wave iron and have to say...when I do find time to use it, it makes my hair look really good. And it's easy to use.

Elle has the scoop on more celeb favorites -- beauty secrets include using baby powder, Andrea Modlash Lashes, and CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain. See who uses these items over at Elle.
