Thoughts guys? I love a good lip oil myself!!
No one has ever liked chapped lips. This might be a generalization, but for the most part no one opts for dry, cracking, uncomfortable lips when they could have soft, plush ones instead. Which is why lip balm has become a staple for just about everyone. MORE: Kourtney Kardashian Uses 3 Products Daily to Keep Her…
I just want to give a shoutout to my main drugstore, CVS!! It’s really a fantastic store to get your beauty products from especially when you’re on a budget. Now, I know some may be thinking “Wait.. what?? They’re always a few dollars more than big box stores..how is this budget friendly?”. Read on to find out!!
When you take advantage of the CVS Extrabucks program, Rewards card, and coupons, you’re saving A TON of money. I am a single mom of a 6 year old boy which means my budget for beauty is almost non-existent. However, because of all three mentioned keywords above, I am able to spend a little on myself for the drugstore brands I covet most.
I’ve purchased two Maybelline mascara’s for $1.69 out the door. I’ve gotten two NYX matte lipsticks for $3 out the door. Physician’s Formula products I get for almost next to nothing.
An example of my transaction today:
Spend $14 on ANY Physician’s formula cosmetics, receive $10 EBs.
1 Phy. Formula Pro Elixir: $15.49
$3/12 Cosmetics CVS Coupon, $10 EB (from previous trip), $2 EB (from previous trip)
Subtotal: .49+.97 tax=$1.46 OTD!
An almost $16 product, and I only spent pocket change AND received $10 additional EBs to use next time!
When you first start out, you will spend more out of pocket because you have to build up your Extrabucks stash. But it’s super easy and almost addicting in a way to save so much money. Plus, if you pair your extrabucks with coupons from the newspaper or printables online, you’re saving even more.
What’s your favorite way to shop? Do you scout the best deals or just buy whatever tickles your fancy at any given moment? Let me know in the comments below and as always, stay beautiful!
Too Faced is one of my most favorite makeup brands. I’ve picked up a couple of things on their sales before and absolutely DON’T regret hitting the “place order” button. However, they aren’t exactly “budget-friendly” for some of us. However, I thought it might be fun to do a little wish-list to see which products I’m coveting and which ones you lovelies have tried and can’t live without. So without further ado, my wish list!
$38 is somewhat on the cheaper side for an eyeshadow palette but as a single mother of a 6 year old boy its not exactly easily obtainable for me. However, this is definitely FIRST of my Too Faced wish list. I’m a big fan of subtle, neutral colors as I feel they are more romantic and soft. The names of each shadow are also cheeky which I love!
The whole Festival Collection is dreamy but this refreshing spray looks heavenly. I am a sucker for Unicorns/Rainbows/Anything Pink so I immediately fell in love with this spray. I enjoy setting my makeup and as I have dry skin, a “refresher” spray is just the thing my skin needs from time to time.
I am a sucker for eyeliners. This one immediately caught my attention because of the bright pop of pink! They have a wide range of colors from this gorgeous pink to an understated silver (Super Fun Night). The best part? Once done, the eyeliner PEELS OFF… whhhhat? That’s crazy!
I’ve loved La Crème lipsticks since they first hit the market. I’ve never really been a lip person when it comes to doing my makeup but in the past few months, I’ve been experimenting with changing that. I am a sucker for dark, bold colors that aren’t your typical reds. This fits the bill perfectly!!

These products look amazing. I’ve tried a few things from each brand before but still need more in my life. Happy shopping lovelies. Stay beautiful!
Today was my son’s third soccer game. It’s Peewee soccer so just imagine a group of 4 year old’s running around in circles chasing after a ball. Adorable. And the weather was gorgeous BUT hot!! To keep my skin from frying on the sidelines, here are a couple of my budget friendly items I keep in my bag on the regs.
I was all set to unveil the Target Beauty Box that I just got in the mail but alas.. my camera decided to be a putz!! So unfortunately, y’all beauties will have to wait tommorow for that. *le sigh*.
