Betcha didn’t know you can buy both your favorite budget friendly beauty brands and higher-end ones at Walmart. They do! Now you can get your favorite Smashbox Lipstick or your beloved Wet n Wild Blush all in one place! Walmart.com carries a wide assortment of higher-end beauty brands like Clarins, Smashbox, NARS, Peter Thomas Roth, and more. And of course, all your favorite budget beauty brands as well like L’Oreal, Wet n Wild, Maybelline, and more! And let’s not forget some you might not even know they had like Kokie!
I’m one of those people that’s always on the fence about whether or not I actually like the idea of shopping both prestigious and budget beauty in one place. As I get older though I realize a one stop shop sure is helpful. Like, you ever go to Trader Joe’s and you’re like, “Damn! I gotta go to Whole Foods after this!”. It’s like you can never do an full shop at TJs and you’re always needing a few things more from some other store. It’s such a pain! I guess that’s why I’ve sort of embraced the idea of shopping for both higher-end beauty and budget in the same place. It just makes life a lot easier. Granted, Walmart doesn’t carry these brands in store sadly! But maybe one day!? Plus they provide 1-2 day shipping so items get to you fast! I ordered from walmart.com on Monday and I got my order on Wednesday! That’s some fast shipping!
I’ve teamed up with Walmart a few times the last few months to celebrate their “Here for Every Beauty” campaign that celebrates over 327 different million faces that make up America. This is a paid sponsorship with them however, the thoughts and opinion I’m sharing are all my own. I decided to do the collaboration because I truly believe that beauty is all inclusive and I’m happy to support a brand or in this case a store that also, feels that way. The beauty world has become more and more inclusive in the last year or two inviting all colors, all races, all ages, all sizes to enjoy. I’ve always felt that the beauty community I’ve created here on Musings of a Muse has been an accepting one. It’s accepted me with all my flaws as I’m not a model, I wear too much blush, and I can’t blend eyeshadow for my life. Thank you for that. Now if the rest of the beauty world and beauty brands felt the same we’d live in a rather great world. But they are making changes and good ones at that. I’m happy that Walmart actually took a stand on this by offering a wide selection of products for all types of people no matter their race, age, or sex. A beauty world that doesn’t make us feel excluded is a good beauty world.
For my collaboration this month I decided to pick up some higher-end beauty picks and some budget ones too! A mix up of items that will get you through the Fall season!
Here’s some of my higher-end and budget friendly beauty picks you can get at walmart.com!
Ok, just want to throw it out there I do not like Equate Cleansing Balm. Nooooo! However, that being said you know what I do like? The affordable hell Equate Beauty Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes! I purchase these in a 2-pack quite often because I swatch a lot on Musings and they do a great job wiping off swatches and makeup at the end of the night when I’m too lazy to do my entire cleansing routine. These are the most affordable makeup wipes I’ve come across at $5.97 for 80 and they work a treat at removing makeup quite easily. I literally purchase 5 x 2-packs whenever I hit up Walmart because I go through them so quickly when swatching and reviewing new palettes especially around the Holiday season as palettes have 24+ shades!
Speaking of wipes how many people knew that Swisspers has exfoliating cotton rounds? How did I not know about these? You need them in your life! Swisspers Premium Exfoliating Rounds have two sides one is a soft cotton side and the other has raised, textured surface to gently exfoliate. I started using these with toners, micellar water, and even acids and I gotta say I like them. They aren’t harsh or rough on skin but the raised surface seems to gently smooth skin! I don’t think I’ll go back to regular Swisspers after that. I just wish they came in a larger cotton round size.
Skincare aside let’s dive into some higher-end and budget friendly Fall makeup picks!
If you’re embracing that sultry smoky purple look for Fall because why wouldn’t you right? It’s such a devil woman look! You can snag Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Golden Hour (I’m wearing it below) which contains an assortment of beautiful hues to create that perfect Fall eye look!
I never thought I’d be shopping my favorite NARS Lipsticks at walmart.com but you can indeed! Jungle Love is a fantastic red that will work great for the cooler weather plus it’ll follow you into the festive Holiday season ahead! I’m wearing it below with a bit of clear gloss!
I’ve sort of been guilty of embracing natural looks for my Fall weekends. This weekend I went apple and pumpkin picking and I kid you not I applied a bit of Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer under my eyes, curled my lashes, and dabbed on some Julep Skip The Brush Creme-to-Powder Blush Stick in Golden Guava (such a gorgeous golden pink) and I was good to good. Minimal but pretty.
Speaking of minimal I discovered Wet n Wild Color Icon Multi-Sticks and I’m in love. They are $2.93 a shade and can be used on lips, cheeks, or eyes. I personally used them on my eyes for quickie looks. Chocolate Cheat Day is a great matte brown that accents my eyes and Nudie Culture makes a great base for powder eyeshadows!
With Halloween on the horizon and Christmas soon after you might be thinking glittery, shimmery lips! Hard Candy Glitteratzi Crystal Lip Duo is a good place to start to grab those gorgeous glittery, sparkly lips. It’s a dual-sided sparkly lipgloss and a glitter lipstick that can be paired up to create a gorgeous lip look!
I’m pretty hyped that Walmart is offering a great outlet to shop prestigious and budget friendly brands. It’s a nice way to get your one stop of beauty without visiting a ton of shops!
I hope you enjoyed some of my high-end and budget friendly picks and I hope you’ll share some of the ones you love buying at your local Walmart.
Let me know what’s making an appearance on your cheeks, lips, and eyes this Fall!
