Beauty on a Budget
You’re getting two reviews for the price of one today.
I rounded up both the Avon Healthy Makeup Lipstick and the new Avon Healthy Makeup Lip Conditioner and had a little play with them this week and yesterday morning and I have to say at this price, they are so worth a haul. $4.99 for a color rich lipstick with an awesome formula?
With the introduction of the 360 degree primer, thanks Benefit, I’m seeing more and more primers that try to act not only as a primer for lids but also as a primer for your concealer and a primer for your lids.
mark Please Hold Eye Primer not only promises to prep lids but also conceal darkness, cover dark spots, puffiness, basically the whole deal in one pot.
Does it work?
Drugstore junkies gather round.
I hit up my local drugstore recently to see what new products I could review for you. There are a ton of new goodies available at the moment such as the L’Oreal Midnight Muse Collection (Hey, think they named it after me?), Maybelline Lash Stiletto Sequin, and other delicious stuff.

Avon Healthy Makeup Eyeshadow are currently $4.99 each so I hauled a few out of morbid curiosity to see if I liked them. Some of the shades looked really nice in the online swatches on Avon’s site plus I’ve discovered some hidden love for cream shadows the past year or two.
If you’re on a budget you might want to check these out, they are pretty nice.
Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Magic Gloss how sweet are you? Playing at being a little dupe of Smashbox O-Gloss are you?
A buck, seventy nine can get you a tiny little tube of this limited edition gloss from Wet n Wild that promises you that perfect shade of just you lipgloss.
Yeah well, that body chemistry, “perfect” shade of you gloss has been a little overdone lately but hey this is budget friendly, we can all handle the under $2 buck price tag right?
I say buy it! Hell, buy two! I love it.
Ahh beauty budget girls gather round and heck even my high enders come on down.
When you think of roses you may think Spring and that’s exactly when the MAC Rose Romance Collection launched. It was one of my favorite collections as of late from the brand because of some of the interesting products released with it such as the Just a Pinch Gel. The fragrance, the makeup, and just everything about the collection was really exciting to me.
Flash forward to Fall 2010 and NYC New York Color Cosmetics Berry Bloom Collection has launched. Now..it’s not Spring and it is beauty on a budget so one wonders do you need any of it? Some of the more snobbish makeup users will beg a big no on this however those watching their wallets will find this is a beautiful little collection that warrants a haul. Shades aren’t particularly Fall but believe it or not they manage to work quite well for a warmer look.
‘ello, ‘ello recessionista beauty junkies!
If you’re in need of a delicious little gloss that has a thicker formula and long wear but aren’t interested in a high price tag, do check out NYC New York Color Kiss Gloss.
My offerings to the Makeup Gods have simply not been enough and I’ve possibly pissed them off because on a recent foray through Walgreens I came across a very empty display of the new limited edition Jordana Neon Alert Collection. That display was so empty it was whistling.
And is it any wonder as it’s cheap as day old chips and has some really killer offerings!
I’m not sure I qualify as the type to get excited about E.L.F. Cosmetics…..it’s a $1 makeup, kinda not uneventful right?
But I admit it, better mark this date down, I’m excited about the new E.L.F. Studio Cosmetics Fall Collection 2010 and guess what, I have a feeling, you’re going to be too.

Lord knows I’m a high end cosmetic junkie. I live by the rule, “you get what you pay for”. Dishing out $20 for an eyeshadow that easily blends, has plenty of pigment, and simply looks stunning is way better than dishing out $5 for one that blends awful, has a chalky formula, and just looks awful on my eyes.
You get what you pay for.
However, some drugstore cosmetics have convinced me that they deserve a special spot among my elite high end cosmetic brands.
Here’s a post that checks out the best of both worlds and includes the best High End Cosmetics vs. the best Drugstore Cosmetics.
