Favorite Budget Beauty Products

in , by Katie Margaret, January 22, 2016
It's time for me to take a break from talking about pregnancy and maternity outfits, to turn my attention to another one of my favorite things besides my clothes...my makeup.  

I love makeup and I love looking for new inexpensive products to try.  Lately, I've been wanting to share some of my favorite beauty products that I'm currently using. 

Here they are...

My latest beauty product purchase has been Garnier BB Cream Renew Miracle Skin Perfector.  So far, I'm very happy with my purchase.  I've been wanting to try a new BB cream to switch up my daily foundation routine.  I love that the cream gives you full coverage, along with a moisturizer and SPF protection.  Most stores sell this BB cream for around $12.99.  It's a little more than I wanted to spend on a BB cream, but since it comes in a 2 oz tube instead of a 1 oz, I figured it will last much longer than the other BB creams.  So far I like the feeling of this BB cream.  It's natural and light weight on my face, plus it helps a lot with shine control, which is good, because of my oily skin. 

Currently, my favorite everyday mascara is L'Oreal Voluminous Volume Mascara.  I've been using this brand for a couple years now and it's my favorite brand by far.  It gives my lashes a full look, while still looking soft. 

I've been using Maybelline The Nudes palette for a few months now and it's been great!  At $9.99, it's the perfect price for someone looking for great neutral colors at a low price.  For Christmas, I got the Urban Decay Naked2 Basics palette.  Don't get me wrong, I love my Urban Decay eye shadow and how smooth it goes on, but I still like the colors in my Maybelline palette better, so I switch it up daily between the 2.  

Essence Silky Touch Blush was definitely a surprise find for me.  For $2.99, I wasn't expecting anything great, but after trying it, I love it.  It's become my everyday blush and I'm in love with the price.  It goes on so nicely and never looks caked on.  Just like in the title, it has a silky touch to it.  It's for sure worth a try! 

Those are 4 products that I use almost every day.  All of these beauty products can be found at Ulta.  I find Ulta to be the best store to buy makeup at.  Not only do they have great prices, but they always have great coupons and I love their rewards program.  (No one paid me to say that, I just really love Ulta.) 

Next on my makeup list is to buy a new bronzer.  If anyone has any suggestions on a good bronzer under $10 leave a comment below.  I'd love to hear.

  1. Nyc smoothing skin bronzer in sunny is my favorite for contouring and to use as bronzer. Super cheap but it feels more high end. :) physicians formula makes great bronzer still but it's kind of pricey for drugstore. I love the garnier bb cream job the summer!

    1. Thank you!! I will for sure look into those bronzer. I'd like to try the NYC bronzer. Sometimes the really cheap brands can surprise you :)

  2. Milani Baked Bronzer is my favorite right now...it's $8.99 at Ulta! I enjoyed this post, I also love cheap makeup finds!!
