Be Beautiful for 99 cents!

Spending major bucks on makeup doesn't always ensure quality or that you're even going to love the product. Many drug store lines have been offering a lot of great options for 99 cents. At first I wondered how anything could be any good for that cheap, especially makeup. However, I stumbled upon this Profusion eyeshadow palette at Walgreens for .99 cents for 12 shadows. I was stunned as I swatched the colors to find that they are really highly pigmented, blend easily, and are creamy. There are a couple colors that are near dupes of each other in this palette, but who cares for 99 cents for 12 shadows! There are two silvers that look almost the same color and two maroonish browns that are very similar. This palette was #3 and I will be heading back to buy the others. Warning there were other glittery palettes and I steered away from those. They looked really cheap and like they would have chunky cakes of glitter in them. But I haven't tried them. I like to get shimmer and glow more from a great color than from glitter! (it does indicate it was Made in China for those of you that are sensitive to that).

Great lipsticks for .99 cents!
These are both wet n wild. They go on creamy and feel great on the lip. They can be worn without anything underneath or on top. These are really beautiful colors. The colors of these are 1) 552A 2) 502A and You can see from the swatches just how vibrant these colors are. I have light to medium skin tone and both of these colors look great on me and I think they would look great on most people, especially the swatch on the right 502A, the left swatch is a little bit darker and you may have to have some previous experience wearing reds to feel like you can pull this one off.

Wet N Wild .99 cent lipstick Left is 520E, Right is 519A. Similar colors, but 519A has a little more red to it. I love love love these colors.The picture of me is with 520E, the pinker shade on. Its really really vibrant in person. This picture doesn't do it justice.  You can wear them completely alone and they do not smudge and are surprisingly long lasting for the price!
I will probably end up buying the entire .99 cents Wet N Wild lipstick line (I have 4 already), thats how much I love them. Although I must admit, I'm not someone who would spend a ton on lipstick anyways. My major weakness is eyeshadows, highlighters, and basically any product that says it will make my skin look brighter and healthier!

And if you're looking for a really daring bright pink, check out NYC #405 Blue Rose. This is a stunning bright pink. I love how it looks on and feels on. I usually pair this with a more neutral eye makeup look because you don't want to look like you are wearing too much makeup or too bright of a look. I usually pick one bright color and then dial down the rest of my outfit. Usually I pick one crazy necklace, scarf, shoes, or a bright lip stick with this and pair it with neutrals or solid colored clothes. You want to make a fashion statement, but not become a fashion nightmare.

This one is not a .99 cent lipstick, I can't remember how much I bought for it, but it is in the $2 range, but I did have a $1 off coupon and so I know I ended up getting it for under a dollar.
Another great staple for your skin care is Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar. Target recently had $1 off coupons on their website and if you sign up the Neutrogena website, they will send you other coupons. After coupon, I had a great face wash bar that ended up being 77 cents at Target. This is a wonderful staple to have in your shower that is not going to cost a lot. This is great for sensitive skin while leaving your skin feeling moisturized and clean.

So keep your eye out for 99 cent deals. It doesn't necessarily mean that you are getting a low quality product.

Yours in Beauty,
