Lip Balms 3 Cruelty Free Lip Balms for Under $3

Lip balms are such an essential for me. They’re one product I don’t mind purchasing tons of,  because I know eventually I’ll use them up. While there are lots of luxurious, high end lip balms out there, there are also many budget-friendly options that work wonders for dry lips. Here are 3 I’ve recently tried – all for $3.00 (or less).

3 budget brushes by elf | Mineral Powder, Small Tapered, Flawless Concealer

budget makeup brushes elf 3 budget brushes by elf | Mineral Powder, Small Tapered, Flawless Concealer

In terms of cruelty-free, affordable brushes, I wouldn’t say elf is on par with Eco Tools or Real Techniques (which I find very much comparable to higher end brands), but they do have some nice options. I’ve purchased quite a few elf brushes over the years, many of which were everyday staples for me for a long time. I always purchase these with 50% off codes, so they’re $1.50 a piece. I recently picked up three new ones: the Mineral Powder Brush, Flawless Concealer Brush, and Small Tapered Brush. CONTINUE READING…

As you’ve probably noticed, I have a lot of neutral, matte eyeshadows. A lot. I rounded up three of the popular nude/neutral palettes I own that are all or mostly matte.

theBalm. I’d heard the raves, seen the coveted A+ ratings, but up until recently, I hadn’t tried any of theBalm’s palettes.

I tried to talk myself out of theBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude palette ($42) because, as evidenced here and here, I’m already swimming in neutral matte eyeshadow. But I finally caved.

CULT NAILS Let’s Get Dirty Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Lets Get Dirty CULT NAILS Let’s Get Dirty Nail Lacquer

Nail painting is one beauty ritual I really don’t enjoy, mostly because I’ve just never gotten good at it. I don’t have the patience for streaky or uneven formulas – I’d rather just skip nail polish or go with a sheer nude. I ordered Let’s Get Dirty ($12) on a whim, after seeing it on Temptalia. It’s my first Cult Nails polish and, after trying this formula, I think I may have found the answer to all my nail polish frustrations.

NYX Bronzing Stix1 NYX Tango With Bronzing Stix | Merengue Flush & Bronzy Lambada

When the mood strikes, I’ll often reach for the NYX Tango with Bronzing Stix. These stick-style creams impart high shine that work as blush and illuminator in one. I’ve had these for over a year and love them. I noticed they were no longer available on NYX’s website, so I wanted to post about them while they’re still available elsewhere. CONTINUE READING…
