Favorite Makeup Under $15

I thought I would share my favorite makeup items that are all under $15. All of the items I list are drug store. I don’t buy high-end or expensive makeup because well, I have bills, want to eat and need a place to live. I just can’t see spending more than $20 on a makeup item.  So I try to find dupes of the high-end items and call it a day. I have nothing against people who do spend the extra money. But here are items that I have found that work for me, under $15.

Favorite Makeup Under $15
Using all items listed

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid -$10.00 I love how this goes on my skin. When I’m wearing  this foundation it’s almost like I’m not wearing any. It applies beautiful.

NYX Professional Makeup Matte Liquid Liner– $7.00 This eyeliner does not budge at all.  Its amazing. It does not have a felt tip, which im very use to using, but a brush instead. It takes a little getting use to.

ESSENCE Colour Correcting Stick $2.99 Super creamy and easy to blend. I have the green to cancel any redness that I may have. But lately I have been having some really bad break outs and not much is hiding them completely. I still see some redness showing through but not nearly as bad when I don’t use any color correcting.

ESSENCE Coverstick-$2.99 Does the job nicely and covers any imperfections  and is also very creamy and blendable. Same as the color correcting, I’m dealing with some really bad break outs but it does help. When my break outs aren’t extremely  angry you can’t tell I have them.  I’m on the look out for a another concealer for my really bad break outs.

Elf Cosmetics  Instant Lift Brow Pencil – $2.00 I have repurchased this brow pencil for the third time  now and I always go back to it. I love that it has a spoolie. Makes my brows very natural looking.

Face Candy Milk Shake Palette – $12.00 I just love the eyeshadows shades from this palette. The creams, nudes,  browns, corals, and  purples are a great combo for spring. There is some fall out but they blend very well. This palette looks like a dupe for the Too Faced Just Peachy Palette.

Elf Cosmetics Mineral Pearls– $8.00 This produt is a bronzer highlighter and blush all in one. Go light when applying. A little goes a long way.

NYX Professional Studio Finishing Powder Translucent Finish-$9.99 Works well and keeps my makeup in place all day. Also doesnt dry out my t zone like other powders have in the past.

Elf Cosmetics Natural Lash Kit-$2.00 These are very natural looking. It took my husband 4 days of wearing them  to ask me if I was wearing fake lashes. 4 days. Why, yes dear I am.

Kiss Ever EZ Lash Adhesive, Clear-$3.99 Very easy to apply on the lashes and stays on all day for me. I havent notice smell when opening a bottle.

So I don’t have a mascara listed  since all of my mascaras are travel sizes  from my Ipsy Bag and I don’t see the need to buy a full size mascara when I’m sent travel sizes. But one of my favorites that I received in a ipsy bag a while back is the Tarte Lifted Sweatproof Mascara in black brown. I will use it to set my brows after I fill them in.

Thanks for reading! What are some of your favorites

Elf Cosmetics Mad for Matte Eye Shadow Palette

I don’tu think I have done a makeup product review in while. So I thought I would share with you my thoughts on the Mad for Matte Eye Shadow from Elf Cosmetics.

This is the first full matte eye shadow palette that I bought since a majority of my eye shadows are shimmered. This palette, I bought at Target for $10. At first when I tried it, it seemed to be chalky and kind streaky. But I have found that when I use a eye shadow primer, I don’t have these issues. I was also having some creasing issues, even with eye shadow premier, I have found that if I apply my argon face oil everywhere but on my eye lids, before applying my make up I have no problem. So lesson learned. No face oil on eye lids. Check.

I really like this palette. It’s very versatile, easy to blend and work with. The colors in this palette are gorgeous. I love that it come with a mirror, which is really handy at times. I still have a problem working with any super dark colors so I haven’t used all of them. I tend to go from naked eyes to raccoon eyes in seconds and its not just this palette. It’s me in general. I just have to practice more with dark colors. I’m very heavy handed when applying dark shadows for some reason.

I’m very happy I picked it up. It’s in my top favorites of eye shadow palettes that I own. I hope to review more makeup products in the future, so please stay tuned!
