I’ve been seeing a $50 makeup challenge go around lately and I wanted to give it a try! I will only be choosing products that I would actually use on a regular basis, e.g. foundation, setting powder etc.
Let’s get started!
I’ve heard many great reviews about this, and I haven’t tried an Essence mascara since I was in high school! For $7, I don’t think I could fault it that much though!
My favourite brow pencil at the moment, I have been using this for probably six months now…I’m onto my second one and I have no complaints. It works well and this price is great too!
I love my liquid liners and this sounds promising because it’s micro. I haven’t tried many mascaras and eyeliners from Rimmel before, but I have one unopened eyeliner from them – will let you know my thoughts once I open it!
I have previously tried this and it’s not too bad. It’s so hard to find an affordable foundation that has a decent shade range!
Another product I’ve previously tried, it wasn’t too bad. It was one of my first translucent powders. It’s pressed so I thought it would be easier to use, but unfortunately it kind of broke/cracked towards the end 😦 Still great for the price though!
I have heard many good reviews about these blushes, and I am yet to try! They are so affordable and come in six colours.
If you’re a long time reader, you’ll know I love this stuff. The best thing ever!
Another fave of mine, can’t beat it, can’t fault it. If you haven’t tried already, you must! Sometimes they are on promotion at 3 for 2! Such a steal, would repurchase them over and over.
I tried an Essence gloss long ago and it wasn’t too bad! It was so hard finding an affordable lip colour or gloss that didn’t break the $50 budget. I settled on this, because
- I love a good clear gloss
- It’s only $4!!
So we’ve come to the end and our total is…$60.98! I was very close!! It definitely is quite hard to create a full face on a budget! I think this could be quite achievable if you were to buy everything from an affordable brand such as Essence or Makeup Revolution, but I do love to mix up my brands a bit because some things don’t work well for me, whereas others work out great!
That’s the end of this post, I would love to know what are some things you would purchase on a $50 budget!
See you again next week!
