What I'm Loving Right Now - Budget-Friendly Beauty Products - A Beauty Blog Post

As a self-funded beauty blogger, I'm always discovering and sharing the best in cheap makeup and skincare. After last couple months' trial-and-error, I found a few budget-friendly beauty products to share. Not only do they proffer outstanding results, they save money too.

1. Olay Age-Defying Anti Wrinkle Day Lotion

Cost: $8.99 (on sale at Safeway)

Why love it?

Because Olay is a trusted brand. And this particular lotion contains SPF and moisturizes well. 

2. ELF Eyelash Curler

Cost: $1.49 at E.L.F website

Why love it?

Because it gives lashes a feather-shaped bend, and keeps them that way for a few hours.

3. Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream

Cost: $9.99 at Target

Why love it?

My initial reaction to this BB cream wasn't positive, but after several months' use, I have grown to like it. It adds a flawless veil to your skin without feelings of heaviness and disgust.


4. Carmex Healing Lotion

Cost: $1.49 per travel-sized tube from Bartell's

Why love it?

Because dry hands and winter go hand-in-hand (no pun intended). This lotion combats dryness like nothing else I have tried.

5. Chap Stick Medicated

Cost: $2 - 3 at drugstores

Why love it?

Because in winter's dry and windy weather, regular Chap Stick isn't enough. You need something medicated!

6. Ellen Tracy Pore Extractor

Cost: Around $5 at Marshall's

Why love it?

Because it is easy to use -- if you need guidance, just watch a youtube video -- and gently takes away dirt and oil trapped under your pores.

7. Wet n' Wild ColorIcon Trio Eye Palette in "Don't Steal My Thunder."

Cost: $2.99 at drugstores

Why love it?

Because it's holiday season, and for those late nights out on the town, you need long-lasting, sexy smokey eyes.


Hope you saw something you like.

Any other suggestions?
