Beauty on a Budget: Inexpensive, Affordable, Cheap Tinted Moisturizers Under $15

Cheap TM

Tis about that time kids! Summer is coming, very slowly, but it is coming. As Summer approaches I tend to haul out lighter coverage and look out for anything that will make me look flawless but isn’t incredibly heavy. Of course tinted moisturizers are a great way to even out your skin tone, make you look flawless, plus most include some sort of SPF for sun protection.

BUT….

They aren’t always cheap! Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is a shocking $42. I’ve always found it a little crazy that tinted moisturizer costs so much and in some cases more than run of the mill foundation.

Anyway, here’s some affordable, cheaper tinted moisturizers to keep your beauty budget in shape this season so at least you’ll have some left over cash for a bikini after purchasing your TM.

E.L.F. Studio Minty Lip Gloss Review and Swatches

ELF Studio Minty Lip Gloss 13

The Muse decided to press her luck a little bit with E.L.F.

I recently had some super success with their brushes and I’m kinda loving on the Studio Blushes at the moment. So, all this good luck must mean something right?

Since I’m crushing so hard on their concealer brush, I decided to order three more. I know weird, three concealer brushes. But, my mentality was that the price was right (less than $3 each after coupon but actually probably not due to obscene shipping costs) and at this cost I could have several brushes for my different concealers. One for cream, one for liquid, etc….

Anyway.

I decided to indulge in the E.L.F. Studio Minty Lip Gloss while I was stockpiling concealer brushes for my jedi master concealer techniques. They looked rather nice, sparkly, hypnotize, drool, want, you know the normal feelings were evoked upon seeing these glosses.

Good?
