Now that we got that out of the way...I have to share three fantastic finds with y'all that have become staples in my makeup bag. As many of you know, I don't discriminate when it comes to beauty products. I'm willing to spend good money on skin care products, but I also don't believe that higher price always equals higher quality. In some cases you can find beauty products at your local drugstore that work just as well, if not better, than ones at the department store. I have two products for you today to "save" on, and one to "splurge" on...
Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb - I'm loving the colored lip trend right now, but I'm not a big fan of cherry red, so I went in search of the perfect "berry" colored lipstick and found it. I love this product, it's a balm/lip stain/lip stick so it goes on smooth but doesn't dry out your lips or run. Bonus, it also has a lip plumping effect. If you don't like the tingly sensation that you get from lip plumping products I wouldn't recommend this, but I don't mind it.
Cover Girl Last Blast Volume Mascara - This is my absolute favorite mascara, it's better than anything you can find at the high end beauty stores. My lashes look long and voluminous, and for $7 you really can't beat it.
Maybelline Instant Pore Eraser Primer - I can't believe more people don't use this last product, it's a hidden gem! If you're a fan of the Smashbox Foto Finish Primer, then this Maybelline Baby Skin primer is for you. The consistency is identical to Smashbox, but for a third of the price. I love how smooth my makeup looks over this primer, and it seems to last just as long as any other product I've used. Quit wasting money on the more expensive versions and give baby skin a try, I think you'll love it!
