Cheap Treats

October 01, 2021 in


Welcome to October, Mes Amies! 

Okay, if you have been here for more than 2 minutes you know that I live for summer. I'm a summer girl 110%. That said though, today is one of those PERFECT crisp New England autumn days. Its sun drenched, there are mums and pumpkins everywhere and my latte tastes extra good today. Maybe, just maybe fall isn't so bad.

This week's "duping divas" post was very well received. Those posts easily get the most views of any of them on this lil blogette. You guys like saving money while looking gorgeous! I get it! I figured "Give the people what they want!" So, while today's post is not dupes, it all about amazing products that are inexpensive but still blow the higher end products out of the water. Lets make a start, shall we?

Arches & Halos Brow Products

Buy Them Here

Okay, this one IS a dupe. For the longest time, the only brow products that I would buy came from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Nothing else could compare to that brand. Once I discovered Arches & Halos, I never looked back. These are the exact same as ABH. Literally, the same. Same formula, same texture, same results. These are all less than half the price of ABH.

Winky Lux Whipped Cream Face Primer

If you want a face primer that makes your skin so soft and so perfected, this is for you. This primer blurs away imperfections and dry patches. Often, I use this without even applying foundation on top. It makes my complexion look that good. Fragrance free and the smallest amount goes the longest way.

Milani Eyeshadow Primer

Buy It Here

This is now the only eyeshadow primer that I'll buy. Its perfect and inexpensive. Why would I even try something else? This is roughly $6.00. It outshines the other ones that cost $28.

BH 10 Piece Cosmetic Brush Set

Good makeup brushes are expensive. There is nothing that you can do about it.
That USED to be true. You'd have to choose between spending an arm & a leg or having rough, sup-par brushes.  Not anymore. This 10 piece set is $26.00. Its just $2.60 per brush. These brushes are just as good as my MAC brushes. I'm so obsessed with these.

Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect

I saved the best for last here. This $5.00 mascara blows away every other mascara that I have ever used. To me, its better than Chanel, Dior, Lancome, etc.
My lashes have never looked longer, fuller or so defined. 

All right, Mes Amies! That's it for today. Have a beautiful weekend. 💓
