Want to look your best this winter but don’t want to overspend on beauty products? Before you splurge on buying an arsenal of makeup products, here are some equally great products that can give you satisfying results at an affordable cost.
1. N.Y.C. Liquid Eyeliner
Instead of an expensive MAC Liquid Liner that costs $16.50, why not buy the N.Y.C. Liquid Eyeliner for a steal at $1.99? N.Y.C. products are available at most drugstores. This bargain-priced eyeliner boasts a smooth eyeliner applicator to ensure you get clean cut lines.
2. Maybelline Great Lash Washable Mascara
We don’t blame you if you feel reluctant to purchase a $24 Christian Dior Diorshow Mascara. You’ll find an equally good mascara by Maybelline called Great Lash Washable Mascara, which promises great lashes without the irritating clumping effect. Find it for $4.26 at drugstore.com.
3. Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub
We know how important it is to use a facial scrub, but you need not sacrifice your precious money on brand name products. If you don’t relish paying $17.50 for a Clinique exfoliating scrub, then consider shelling out a mere $7.49 for the Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub (drugstore.com). Even out your skin tone and texture without paying premium price.
4. Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
The low price of $2.99 will buy you a tube of Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm that not only protects your lips from the harsh sun rays but keeps them feeling silky smooth (fontanasports.com). What’s more, the tube is made from recycled plastic. This sure beats a $20 pot of Benefit Benetint Lip Balm.
5. CoverGirl Smoothers Concealer Concealer, Deep-N
Want to erase tired wrinkles and smooth lines but only have $5.62 in your purse? Sounds impossible, but CoverGirl can make your dream come true with its best-selling Smoothers Concealer that comes in varying shades to match your skin tone (drugstore.com) and is on sale now. It’s definitely more cost effective than a $25 tube of Estèe Lauder Disappear Smoothing Crème Concealer.
