budget beauty buys!

So as I mentioned earlier this week, I'm on a mission to find some wallet friendly products since I myself am on a budget. I am no beauty connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination. But I do know what works for me. I have tried all of these products and they are all part of my daily regimen. Maybe you guys will find your next great product here and maybe you won't.

1) Sonia Kashuk Eye Shadow Palette in Sweet Nothings, $14.29- This is my daily eye shadow. I really only use the white, brown and grey colors but I love them. They are very subtle but have just an oomph to make your eyes stand out.

2) Sonia Kashuk Bare Minimum Pressed Powder Bronzer, $9.99- I use this year round. I like the little bit of color it gives me. I am very light skinned so bronzers can sometimes be too much and leave streaks. I hate that. This just gives me a healthy glow.

3) Essie nail polish in Chinchilly, $8- I just bought this nail polish. And I love it! It's perfect for fall and if you stink at painting nails like I do, this color is subtle enough that you won't even see the mistakes!

4) Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel, $14.99- I just started using this product and I love the way it leaves my eyes refreshed.

5) L'oreal Infallible Lipcolor in Persistent Plum, $9.99- You guys I have been on the hunt for a perfect wine colored lipstick for this fall and this is it! I love this line of lipstick. This is the second one I've recommended and I can't recommend this color enough!

6) CoverGirl and Olay Eye Concelaer, $11.99- I keep trying eye concealers and this is the one I just keep coming back to. It's perfect for my under eye circles. It covers them without drawing attention to them.

7) Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing and Make-up Remover, $6.39- I love this face wash. I love that it's natural. I love the way it makes my face. And it really works for my skin.

8) Clearasil Adult Treatment Cream, $5.29- I have breakouts. I hate it. I can't believe I'm in my late twenties and still breaking out. But this cream helps make them go away quicker. I use it every single night in my problem areas and it works.

All of these can be found at your local drugstore or Target. What are some of your go-to products that you just can't live without?

Linking up with Current Crush today.


  1. Sonia Kashuk has some great products. I LOVE the makeup brushes especially the price!

  2. I LOVE all those "Yes TO" products! I can't wait to try more!

  3. I can't live without my Essie nail polishes! They're the best!


  4. Ooo I love neutral Essies, it's something they definitely do best! Thanks for the recommendation :)

  5. Yep to all of the above comments! I am wearing Essie Chinchilly on my toes right now with a darker grey on the big toes & I LOVE it!

  6. Confession...I am an affordable fashion gal, but I have really bad cystic acne so I am very picky about what I use on my face and therefore tend to go after the more pricier brands. However, my favorite blush is this drugstore fuchsia number that I picked up CVS. It's either milanoo or new york something another. By the way, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment today.

  7. Clearasil Acne Pads--I use them to exfoliate my feet. Works like a charm!

  8. You're right - great minds do think alike! You're the second person I have heard mention the CoverGirl & Olay concealer... I think I might just need to give it a try! I have really dark under eye circles, so I am always looking for something good!


Thank you so much for commenting! It really makes my day!
