Happy Friday, ladies! Thank you all for the sweet words this week and for linking up with the Fall Swag Swap yesterday!
I’m glad my post Monday resonated with so many of you, and hope we can all relax a bit!
And, thankfully today is finally Friday. Let’s talk makeup:
I’ve found some fantastic budget beauty finds lately that I want to share with you. I feel like I’ve been sharing pricier items lately but I have NOT lost my love for all things cheap.
Maybelline Fit Me Stick: I don’t love foundation, honestly. I never get it right and can never find the perfect fit (though I’m loving Stila’s Perfectly Poreless Putty Perfector). But I wanted something quick and light for every day. I liked Maybelline’s Fit Me liquid foundation, but the stick is less messy and easier to apply.
Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara: you know I love The Falsies, and this is the same concept with a different brush. I’ve been using both Falsies together and have definitely upped the lash drama!
NYX Control Freak Eyebrow Gel: I have the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel, but was running low and decided to give this a try during a recent NYX sell. I’m so glad I did. It works just as well at a fraction of the price.
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Cherry Skies: this was another sale impulse buy (NYX products were buy two, get one free. Couldn’t pass). Holy cow, you guys. This lipstick is AMAZING. I may like it more than MAC. You need a liner with it because it tends to bleed, but look at the color!
Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Berry Charm: Sinful Colors is my favorite nail polish. It’s $1.00 a bottle and is comparable to OPI and Essie. Berry Charm is the perfect fall color for those of you not interested in vampiness.
What budget products are you loving lately? Anything I need to try?
