Beauty on a Budget

Avon Lip Tint

Morning!

How’d the weekend treat you? I spent it upstate and what started out rainy ended up gorgeous, ’bout time too as it’s been cold. But today we are back to rain, thunder, lighting…etc…etc…it’s the type of weather that makes you want to stay in bed or procrastinate. And boy have I been procrastinating today. I spent the better half of my morning reading Wincest and proceeding to not get anything done. I dunno why I do it, it always ends up consuming an hour or more of my time.

Yay me!

Now I’m rushing around trying to get endorsements processed for the day.

Mmm by the way Avon’s new Lip Tint caught my eye. I popped a few in my cart.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub Review

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub 1

Oh Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub I want to love you but you’re just not suitable for my dry, flaky skin. I need you to be tough but you’re terribly gentle…!

I’m always so tempted by Aveeno’s brightening marketing strategy. Slap “brightening” on any skincare and I’m on top of it! Sadly, Aveeno’s Brightening Collection just isn’t something that’s ever really captured me.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub sounds terribly tempting but for dry skin users it’s not the one that you want.

E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder

E.L.F. when you do things right you do things right and your new Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder is all kinds of right.

At some point in my makeup life I avoided powder under my eyes in a major way. It was aging me terribly and just wasn’t a good idea all around. I discovered Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder and proceeded to hate all over it. At the time I was just starting to have issues with dryness under my eyes and was really struggling with how to treat the issue. Needless to say after I started moisturizing my eyes properly I enjoyed Laura’s powder and later discovered even nicer products for settling my concealer like Skin Food’s Salmon Powder and Benefit Powderflage.

Needless to say when E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder launched I was curious. Three dollar setting powder? Mmmm…!

Take a look!
