Beauty products are so hit and miss! And then add on finding ones that are superb and cheap! Madness!
So to spare you the pain I’ve had of buying a lot of misses, here’s some of my favourite affordable beauty buys:
1. Clinique Chubby Stick in Woppin’ Watermelon
The best!!! My favourite color is Woppin Watermelon, but I also really love Chunky Cherry. This is like a lipstick/balm/gloss hybrid. It’s glorious. It stays on all day, and gives phenomenal color without feathering because it is so moisturizing. It’s only $19 and it lasts forever! Legit. It’s phenomenal. I clearly can’t say that enough.
The new Chubby Stick Baby Tint just came it out, and it’s also great! I haven’t had it long enough to officially decide whether I endorse it yet, but it does feel a little different (a little less glossy-ness) and it gives more color.
2. e.l.f. Liquid Eyeliner in Black
This liquid eyeliner lasts so long! And get this – it’s only ONE DOLLAR! Waaaaat?! Yeah, a dollar.
You can buy e.l.f. at Target, but only in stores (it’s not sold on the website). In the U.S. it’s $1, but in Canada they don’t carry this one, they carry the precision eyeliner for about $4. My advice is to stock up when you head down the States next! I’ve got about six sitting in my vanity right now. It’s such a steal!
3. NYC Top Coat “In a New York Color Minute”
This is a rapid dry top coat. It drys so fast and without bubbles (that’s the worst!). It is so shiny and makes your nails look great forever! (Well, you know a long time.)
You can purchase this at Walmart and Target and lots of drugstores. Currently at Walmart it is 2 for $3. So why not?! Get NYC’s Matte Top Coat as the second.
