Some people believe that makeup is either a save or splurge item. I’ve always been of the mentality that you get what you pay for. However, drugstore and beauty budget brands and offerings have changed and evolved so much that you not only get a great formula but you aren’t paying a lot for it either.
However, I’m still one that enjoys mid-range and high-end brands myself and there are definitely products I won’t skimp on. I think a lot of people will kill me for saying this and much to the masses disagreement, I really do believe mascara is a splurge item. Sorry! I know, I know, it’s an item we have to replace quite quickly since you won’t want to be using the same mascara within three or so months of opening it. But I haven’t quite found that perfect drugstore mascara yet and I’m typically disappointed with the offerings I do purchase.
Mascara isn’t the only item I splurge on though!
Here are my splurges!
The Tarte Double Duty Beauty Foundation Brush & Spatula ($30) is a new foundation brush designed and created for use with the Tarte Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation in mind. This a double-ended brush that has a slanted foundation brush on one side for buffing in product and a small spatula on the other which can be used to scoop foundation out of the jar without having the touch it.
Let’s take a look!
The Real Techniques Cheek & Lip Set ($19.99) is a new, limited edition Real Techniques Trio of Makeup Brushes that arrives for Spring 2016. I know of you really love the Real Techniques line of makeup brushes, and I can’t blame you as I have quite a few I love and use daily. They are super budget friendly, well made, and they built to last!
Here’s a look and the new Cheek & Lip Set!
Double Duty Beauty Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation is available in 10 shades with a creamy gel formula that’s oil-free and promises 12 hours of wear with a hyaluronic acid to keep skin moist.
This is a formula I was very, very excited about because I have drier skin, and this is marketed for skin types like my own.
Know what the good news is?
It didn’t disappoint!
