Beauty recessionistas gather round because you’re going to want to go wild on the new Milani Baked Bronzer that should be popping up at your local drugstores shortly or maybe already have.
Milani has three shades of its new Baked Bronzer available at the moment and it is such a hardcore dupe for Urban Decay Glided Baked Bronzer plus hello half the price. Loves that hard.
Only problem is Milani seriously needs to work on the packaging because boy is it crummy.
This post is a Back to School Beauty Budget Picks for College students and Back to Schooler’s in need of some budget friendly beauty picks that won’t break their bank. This series is all about affordable skincare, cosmetic, & beauty bits and bobs for those heading back to class in the next few weeks!
Today’s pick, E.L.F. Studio Blush.
Let me tell you something.
If you told me you spent $3 bucks on blush and that it worked, chances are I’d call you a liar. Honestly, $3 blush, has to be garbage right?
Gather round silicone primer hates and rejoice in the new Stila One Step Correct Primer. It might look like a DNA sample but it’s actually a silicone-free primer, color corrector, brightener, and anti-aging skincare serum all in one wonder.
God, I love makeup so hard that promises me the universe. It might not deliver but I eat it up like candy and completely buy into anything they tell me.
Guerlain Parure Compact Foundation will set you back a whopping $78 bucks. Not necessarily a bad thing if you love gorgeous makeup but let me take a second to introduce you to the Lorac Event Out Complexion Kit which is just as gorgeous, just as luxe, and a fraction of the cost.
Wanna see it?
Aptly named Dare to Wear is a collection of crazily vibrant shades of MAC eyes shadows and lip glosses, daring you to wear such bold shades.
MAC Dare to Wear is what MAC C-Shock was to me three years ago, a reintroduction of what MAC does best, awe aspiring shades of shadow.
- A. I’m getting too old.
- B. I hated the finish on most of these.
- C. I’m off the MAC bandwagon
Because I totally did not roll over and play dead when I saw this collection pop up. I’m in this brown eyeshadow stage right now, a place where I never thought I’d be, and aquas, greens, and my normal crazy shades of color are simply not as appealing as more neutral shades lately so maybe that’s what triggered my less than stellar excitement upon seeing Dare to Wear. Plus I kinda felt like the mattes and frost finishes prevented me from bothering as well…
I did get a few MAC Dare to Wear shades to try out.
