If you’ve followed this blog for long, you know I’m an avid budget shopper. I will splurge on certain things, but I truly believe you can find equally good products that won’t break the bank. Many of the products I use every day fall into that category:
Mario Badescu Rose Water Spray: You know my feelings on this. It’s great for refreshing your face on a hot day, and I spritz it on every morning to set my makeup.
Not Your Mother’s Texturizing Spray: Cannot live without this and it’s $6! I spray it on before (and sometimes after) curling my hair. It sets the style and gives me volume, which my fine hair desperately needs. Bonus: NYM products are currently buy one, get one 50% off at Ulta!
Rimmel Stay Matte Primer: I find myself reaching for this over more expensive primers lately. It provides a matte finish and does a great job of concealing pores.
NYX Matte Liquid Liner: The best. Seriously. It doesn’t budge and is easy to apply. Bonus: NYX products are currently buy one, get one 50% off at Ulta!
NYX Lip Pencils: I even use these with high-end lipsticks. They have staying power, often outlasting my expensive lip products. And they’re all under $5!
Real Techniques sponges: I’ve had a BeautyBlender but I like these just as much. You can get four (check out the deal on that four-pack!) for less than the price of one BB! I also love their Miracle Diamond Sponge – who can resist marble? However, I will be purchasing the new BB by Erika Jayne. Can’t resist.
Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer: You can tell this product is well-loved; I will be purchasing another compact soon! Other bronzers always made me look like I’d smeared dirt on my face, but this is perfect for fair-skinned ladies, and the smell will transport you to the beach! It’s endless summer.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream Moisturizer: A lifesaver for my skin this summer! I’ve spent a lot of time outside, and this lightweight moisturizer is perfect at hydrating and refreshing my face without feeling greasy. What more could you want in a lotion? Check out Amazon’s price on it (linked). Cheaper than I’ve seen anywhere else!
