How to save $$$ when shopping for beauty products

Would you like to save money?? In the ever growing multi gazillion dollar beauty industry, the choices for beauty products can be overwhelming, not to mention draining our bank accounts.

The products are endless. So many brands and so much competition has made this industry one of the largest growing businesses to date. The catch… these products are ever growing and changing so often that it enables us to keep purchasing. New formulas, new shades, more coverage; the list is endless.

I am going to let you in on a little secret. I have purchased thousands upon thousands of both high end makeup products as well as lower end – drugstore products. For anyone starting out or just just simply do not have the extra cash flow for some of these ‘higher end’ products, I have found many drugstore beauty products that hold up just as good – if not better – than my high end makeup brands. I am going to share with you how to save the extra cash by listing off the best drugstore products that I feel are just as good as going to Sephora and dishing out hundreds of dollars on just a few items. I will include a detailed list of everything from primer all the way through to lips.

Primer : I have tried and tested so many primers the last few years that my bin is overflowing. I am definitely a primer girl so I know what worked and what doesn’t. Any of these products can be purchased at any drugstore/supermarket that sell these brands.

  • NYX Pore Filler $14.99
