Have you ever gotten your paycheck and had to go out and restock your makeup bag? When you are finished, are you shocked to realize that you have almost nothing left until next paycheck? There are so many great products out and they don’t always have to cost you your entire paycheck and then some. Sometimes you can find the perfect lip-gloss for just a dollar. That being said; there are some products that are worth the splurge. Here are the products, treatments, and makeup that are worth a little more and go a long way:
Save your skin the trouble and don’t lay out too much in the sun. Bare Minerals, Warmth($24), is the perfect bronzer to help you achieve a glowy complexion. Add as little or as much color as you want to appear to have that perfect tan.
If you’re more of a blush girl then you’ll love Nars, Desire($26). It’s the perfect shade of pink and the color lasts all day. The best part is that you don’t have to constantly re-apply. A little goes a long way with this blush.
For quick drying, vibrant nail polish any from the Essiecollection will work. With the single smooth coat that just glides on your nail, it won’t irritate you too much having to spend $8 a bottle.
Lip-gloss is fun and adds personality to your outfit. Bare Escentuals collection of Buxom ($18), glosses are to die for. It feels refreshing on your lips and the color lasts hours without the really sticky formula. Try Kanani for a girly summer look or Dolly on a sexy date.
The skin needs to be exfoliated weekly in order help remove the dead skin. Although the skin naturally sheds itself, sometimes it gets stuck clogging our pores. This leads to break outs in the skin. Sabon’s Body Scrub not only smells delicious but works wonders. You’ve never felt your skin as soft as this scrub leaves it. This is one scenario where the old saying “as smooth as a baby’s bottom” falls true. It’s perfect in Tropic ($30), for these hot summer days.
Origins, Clear Improvement Mask ($21) is a must have if you suffer from breakouts or oily skin. The mask has activated charcoal that works as a magnet. It gets rid of all dirt, clogged pores and other toxins.
Spending a little extra on these products are worth it in the long run.
