Beauty on a Budget

Hard Candy Pop Up Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Hard Candy Pop Up Palette 1

After some serious digging I finally located the Hard Candy Pop Up Palette. Who wouldn’t want it? The promise of cute little pots of Hard Candy Baked Eyeshadow in a pop up design palette a la Urban Decay Book of Shadows with a $15 sweet as honey price tag. It seemed like a great option to feature on Musings as a budget beauty gift or just because we are all bloody fine beauty junkies that need the latest, greatest fix eh?

And….

Wow.

Wait until you hear this!

NYX Blush Desert Rose Review, Swatches, Photos

NYX Blush Desert Rose 1

I did a little too much damage during the 50% off site wide sale at NYX during Thanksgiving weekend. Ouch! But who resist at these prices?

Anyone haul?

Whatcha get?

I was excited to haul some of the mega palettes they had and I gotta tell you, so far, I’m not disappointed!

Anyway….

Even if you missed the sale, NYX still calls to the beauty budget souls among us. Check out their blush if you’re seeking pigmented yet wallet friendly.

I tried the shade Desert Rose and loved it!

Check it!

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher Review, Swatches, Photos

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher 1

I used to stick to the high end road on Musings for a very long time but many of you expressed more budget friendly posts and thus my adventures in drugstore land began. I’m lucky the walls don’t crumble down around me when I walk into a drugstore because lord knows I avoid the makeup aisles at the local shops like the plague.

But lately….

Things have improved and brands are definitely competing with their more higher end sisters. So Beauty and a Budget is definitely a regular deal around these parts and I’m ever so happy to bring you a great deal on makeup that has high quality to back it up!

One such item, Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher. Can you say wicked good?

Jump!

Hard Candy Big Curls Don’t Cry Review, Photos

Hard Candy Big Curls Dont Cry 4

Big girls don’t cry…they don’t cry-ya-ya….they don’t cry. Isn’t that cry-ya-ya the perfect high note for the shower? Not that I sing in the shower. No way, not me.

I do full Broadway style shows in my shower, yeah, well, you’re never seeing that. Admission 1 only.

Speaking of big girls that don’t cry, that happens to be the name of the new Hard Candy Mascara, well, not really, replace girls with curls.

Check it chicks!
