Be A Savvy Shopper

Shopping doesn’t have to empty out your pockets completely. In this economy, being a bit of a savvy shopper will come in handy. We are led to believe that, because a product costs more it will work best. It might take a little extra browsing time but, hey, who doesn’t want to take their time when it comes to shopping?

Putting on a pretty face shouldn’t cost you tons. Take the NARS Highlighting/Bronzing Blush Duo for example. This is acombination of their most popular blush and bronzer and retails for $39. E.L.F. is like the dollar menu of make-up. All of their products are under five dollars. They have an almost identical product, the Contouring Blush & Bronzer Powder for only three dollars. Talk about a steal!

Hair care is also important. When your hair looks bad it can throw an entire outfit off. While there are so many products promising healthy hair, they can be a bit costly at times. Suave offers a collection of affordable hair products. Their shampoo and conditioner for damaged hair renewal is only two dollars a bottle. Best of all you get the same results from Suave as you would from salon brand products.

Let’s not forget our nails. Nail polish is our way of dressing them up. Essie and O.P.I. colors are vibrant and never lacking in color options. But, really, who wants to spend eight to $10 on nail polish? N.Y.C has a collection of all the hottest colors this season, and they’re only $1.99 each.

Before dropping down a wad of cash on your next product, channel your inner savvy shopper and browse for the affordable version.
