I though it was a wonderful idea to share some of my affordable (and almost dirt cheap!) favorites with you all
since I'm always on the lookout for great buys.
Love & Beauty Blush in Peach ($1.99 at Forever 21):
I love this blush, the design is gorgeous and so is the color! It isn't super pigmented, but it gives my cheeks the most gorgeous flush. It has four colors in it, but swirled together they create a soft peach cream shade that looks amazing.
Love & Beauty Eyeshadow in Light Pink ($1.99 at Forever 21):
Forever 21 has some of the most amazing makeup! This eyeshadow is very interesting. Its not a powder but not a cream. You can't use a standard eye shadow brush to pick it up, but you have to use your fingers instead. Its extremely pigmented so you can concentrate it on your lids or sheer it out for use as a highlight. The color is gorgeous as well. Its a very light, reflective, metallic pink.
Jordana Color Effects Powder Eyeshadow in Over the Taupe ($1.99 on Cherryculture.com):
I've used many high end and expensive eyeshadows, but I always find myself coming back to this shadow. It has amazing staying power and it will last all day, even in hot weather. It is a gorgeous cool deep brown/taupe shade with a hint of purple. The shadow is smooth to the touch and blends out like a dream. I really need to purchase more of these! (especially since I can find them often times at my local dollar store!)
Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Pink Punch ($2.00 - $4.00, major retailers and drugstrores):
I'm sure you've all heard tons about this lip balm, but it is worth the hype. This is a gorgeous bright pink lip balm that glides on smoothly and moisturizes my lips. It also has a super yummy fruity scent (like fruit punch!) It's very pigmented and a great deal, I recommend checking this out!
Jordana Forever Flawless Pressed Powder ($1.99 on Cherryculture.com):
This powder provides medium to full coverage without looking cakey. I use it to set my liquid foundation, and it keeps my face shine free all day. I love that it gives my skin an airbrushed finish for such a great price. I find that it performs better than many other powders I've tried for sometimes ten dollars or more.
I really hope that this post gave you all some ideas on affordable yet high quality products to try out! If you'd like, post your own version and leave it in the comments below, I'd love to check it out!
