Beauty on a Budget
I’m always on the look out for great blending brushes. I love my MAC 224 but I cheat from time to time to see what else is out there. In the case of budget beauty, E.L.F. has some surprisingly good offerings in the brush world.
They recently introduced a Mineral Brush Collection that’s 100% Cruelty Free, I picked up the blending brush on a whim when perusing the new Fall Collection.
I’ve become ever so slightly obsessed with the Wet n Wild ColorIcon Collection after trying the Holiday Palettes. These are seriously amazing palettes for the price and have given me a completely new outlook on the brand and budget beauty. I can be a bit picky when it comes to makeup so it is saying something when I actually LIKE budget makeup.
Since trying and loving the ColorIcon Palettes I was determined to explore more of the line, my first stop, Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeliner Pencil.
If you’re yearning for some beauty gift sets that won’t break your budget Avon has a few that might settle your cravings and keep you well under budget.
Avon has evolved considerably over the past few years and many of its makeup offerings are quite good and more important quite cheap.
Let’s have a look!
I commonly associate gold and silver with the holidays particularly when it comes to makeup collections. I love change and variety when it comes to Holiday Makeup Collections but I’m also a sucker for keeping to all that gold and silver. In most cases brands seem to cater to my want in regards to these two shades. A traditional smoky eye using silver, red lips, beautiful gold lids….yes, brands definitely have the same idea as me for the Holidays.
The Avon 24K Glamour Holiday 2010 Collection gives me gold and it gives it to me on a budget. If you’re on a bit of a budget and all the makeup glam I’ve currently had display isn’t something you can indulge in this year, good news, under $30 or so can get you beautiful eyes and lips!
I’m kicking myself today for not picking up ALL the shades of Hard Candy Hide & Glow Cheek. You see, I only make a pilgrimage to the evil empire (Walmart) a few times a year and in most cases its because 1. my sister drags me in (her being the Queen of old Wally World and all) or 2. I need to get my Hard Candy fix.
During my recent foray I ended up hauling one of the three shades of Hard Candy Hide & Glow because I was a little meh and worried it wouldn’t be so fabulous but now that I completely love it, I’m left to kick myself around because I really hate the idea of heading back to the evil empire to get the other two shades.
Sod’s law, anything that can go wrong, will go wrong in the case of great makeup.
