I will be honest and admit I usually spend more money and go with higher end brands. I don't have very many drug store branded items in my makeup arsenal. This is because of a few factors. Firstly, I like to buy products that use good quality, non-toxic ingredients and a lot of drug store brands use really cheap, chemical-laden ingredients in their makeup. Secondly, I generally think that higher end brands give better quality payoff. However, this is NOT always the case!
Here are my Cheap Beauty-Buy Wins:
#1: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters! I think these are pretty well-known in the beauty blog community and there is a reason for it! Revlon gives you lots of great colour choices with this line, and the product itself is an excellent mix of lipstick and lip balm! My current favourite is Creme Brulee! These are very well-priced and can be bought on sale for around $7.00 in Canada.
#2: Elf's Kabuki Brush! This little guy cost me a mere $6.00! This feathery soft brush doesn't shed, and it is just as effective as my $40.00 Kabuki brush! I would definitely recommend this brush to all of you- I couldn't believe the quality of this brush when I started to use it. It is a definite cheapie win!Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara. I was totally blown away by the quality of this drugstore mascara, which sells for around $12.00 a tube. It gives me amazing length and volume- I get tons of compliments on my lashes whenever I wear this product. I love that it is affordable because it means I can keep on buying it over and over without ever cringing at the price like I do with my high end mascaras!
TELL ME: what are some of your cheapie products that turned out to be an amazing value?
