Beauty on a Budget

Maybelline Barely Beige Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Barely Beige is one of eight new, limited edition shades for Fall 2012. I was quite excited about this launch as I really love the Color Tattoo formula.

For a long time I hated cream eyeshadows but I’ve migrated more and more to the formula in the last several years. Maybelline did a fabulous job with this formulation plus you can get these little pots for as little as $5.99 in some locations. Combine that with a Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off and you have a fantastic little beauty budget steal.

Take a look!

Musings of the Day: It’s Ok To Shop for Makeup at Forever 21

Forever 21 Love Beauty Shimmer Tinted Lip Gloss 1

Some title eh? But I really like digging through the Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Collection when checking out. They always have those buckets that surround you as you edge towards the register in what seems like the never ending line from hell (why is F21 always so damn busy?).

I think they intentionally put all that stuff around to either 1. make super spontaneous sales or 2. to keep you entertained while you’re waiting with twenty people in front of you.

Palettes, glosses, oh my! All utter rubbish of course but sometimes, well only sometimes it’s ok to shop for makeup at Forever 21.

No shame in my game.

E.L.F. Studio HD Blush for Fall 2012

E.L.F. Studio HD Blush Fall 2012

HD Blush from E.L.F.? That’s happening!

E.L.F. Studio HD Blush ($3) is a new five shade blush selection that quite resembles Make Up For Ever HD Blush. The resemblance is uncanny but the price tag, not so much. E.L.F.’s competitive pricing brings these in at a mere three bucks each.

I hurried to order four of the five shades yesterday because I feared they’d sell out super fast.

Pond’s Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser Review

Ponds Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser

As you know Pond’s recently launched a new Luminous Clean Collection that supposedly brightens skin and eases dullness. I say hells yes….I struggle with dull, tired skin so I definitely navigate towards anything that promises me brighter looking skin.

I’ve been using Pond’s Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser for close two weeks now and here are a few thoughts.
