Im interested to hear what beauty products you guys use. what will you splurge on and what can you find on the cheap? personally I wont spend big money on lipstick- my personal favourite is rimmel long last lipstick in shade rosetto rouge- nice light red color. For skin care I will always splurge and I find ultraceuticals vitamin a sheer cream is worth every penny. what about you guys?
It varies for me. If at all possible, I try to make some of my beauty products (toner, facial scrubs, etc.) to save money. If I can find a cheaper option for stuff, I will ultimately go with it:
Brushes (splurge/save) - I do have 2 MAC brushes, but I've also found that E.L.F. brushes are fairly good too (depending on the line that you buy)
Primer (splurge) - This is one place that I have to splurge. Urban Decay Primer Potion is the only one that works for me. I don't use face primer.
Foundation (save) - Revlon Whipped Creme. The colour match is perfect for me so that isn't a splurge at all.
Eyeshadow (splurge/save) - I have Urban Decay's Naked palette 2 (which I love), but I am also a fan of L'Oreal's Infallible shadows and a few NYX shadows.
Eyeliner (save) - NYX 24 hour liners and Milani eyeliner.
Mascara (save) - I've never used an expensive mascara.
Lipstick (save) - Revlon. This is one place where I definitely won't spend a lot.
