Hi everyone!!! Happy Labor Day!! I hope everyone is having a great long weekend! No long weekends off for me lol, mommin’ all day everyday here ha! Anyway, I wanted do a little post on budget beauty products! I know I always post a lot “pricey” stuff, but I DO have budget products that I love and use. Some newer than others, but I really love them and recommend them nonetheless.
Let’s jump right in!
I want to start with the newest product, the Covergirl Healthy Elixir Foundation. I literally bought this last week, and the moment I tried it totally fell in love with it. The foundation glides on the skin beautifully. It is super lightweight, and supposed to be full coverage; I didn’t find it to be full coverage. I feel like if a foundation is meant to be full coverage it should do that no matter how much you apply on. I tend to go with a very light hand when I apply foundation, and if I feel I need more then I just add more, it’s easier to add than you have to wash you whole face lol. Anyway, I would say the coverage is medium, but on the light side. I also loved the finish of this foundation, it looks very luminous, I love a dewy finish. I could go on and on, but I want to talk about other products! lol. The last thing I want to say, price, this is super affordable, and a little tip, if you buy it at Rite Aid, you can use your rewards card and get it at 20% off!
When it comes to concealers, I am super picky! I have dark circles and I want something that is going to not only cover them, but also not make my under eyes look too matte or crease too much! Before I started using Tarte’s Shape Tape, my go to has always been the NYX Hi Definition Photo Concealer. I really like the coverage of this concealer. The formula goes on very smoothly and it’s easy to blend. I like using one of their lighter shades to highlight. This concealer is absolutely fabulous and can’t go wrong with the price! Also, from NYX, these eyeliners are awesome! They are super creamy, glide on nicely and of course affordable!!
I have said in past posts that I love bronzers as much as I love big fluffy brushes! And I’m saying it here again lol. I LOVE bronzers. I love using them not just to bronze my face, but even do a little contour with them, depending on the warmness of the bronzer. I have a few favorites, but one of my recent drugstore favorites is this Rimmel Maxi Bronzer (I can’t find this at Ulta, I bought it at my local Rite Aid store). I just talked about this bronzer in my August favorites. I love the beautiful golden finish you get with this. They have different shade which is great for everyone!! Price point, a steal, can’t go wrong! If you haven’t tried this bronzer, I suggest you do! 🙂
This highlighter and blush (blush not available at Ulta.com, I purchased at my local Rite Aid) from Wet N Wild are amazing! The blush is beautiful peachy/pinky subtle color, looks so pretty on the skin. I love wearing it alone when I have no makeup on just to give my face a little color. Now the highlighter…guys you would never expect a drugstore, super affordable highlighter to be as blinding and as pigmented as this. I love that there is not much fall out, it doesn’t have that ‘dry’ look some highlighters have and it is just beautiful all around. Totally recommend these two!
I’ve talked about these new Maybelline lippies, here, on my Instagram, and probably in every makeup conversation I have lol. These are truly amazing. They are pigmented, they are long wear and have the right amount of pigment. They are very inexpensive and if you’ve been thinking about trying them, YOU SHOULD!
I know I’ve talked about the Covergirl Total Tease Mascara a lot too lol, see here, here, here, lol and on and on. I can’t talk about it enough! This mascara is so fabulous! The applicator is great, separates the lashes, you get tons of volume, it’s not clumpy, I mean I can’t say enough about this and who doesn’t love a product that is great, but also affordable!?
Speaking of mascaras, another drugstore mascara I love is the L’Oreal Voluminous Building Waterproof Mascara. This mascara is truly one of the best drugstore products I’ve tried along the Covergirl. With this one you get thickness, you get volume and length. My only complain is that it is a bit clumpy, but not so much that it’s not workable! The mascara is right and so is the price guys! Oh and in my humble opinion, this one is WAYYY better than their new Lash paradise mascara.
Last but not least, sometimes, when I’m going somewhere that requires some type “dolling up” lol and I don’t want to wear makeup, this is my go to. This Bhcosmetics Illuminating BB Cream is so pretty on the skin. It is not heavy and gives you a beautiful luminous finish. Obviously you won’t look like you have anything on, but you can certainly tell there is something there because you get that beautiful glow after the application. And you know it, the price is super low! Can’t go wrong with this one!
Alright my darlings, that is all I have for you today! I hope you liked, enjoyed and found this post helpful.
