If you are like me, you are OBSESSED with all things beauty, but you are also on a budget. Being on a budget doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice things. There are many products that are just as good as the high-end products we all know and love. Don't get me wrong, there's some products that I just can't find dupes for or that I don't want to find dupes for. But here's a few products that are definitely budget-friendly and actually really good.
this is one of those categories that I essentially have no dupes for, except for one.
The Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm is actually a good product to help foundation stick to your skin. I tried this not too long after Nikkietutorials recommended it. While it isn't my favorite, it is a pretty decent product. It is available at Target for $5.99.
Revlon ColorStay Makeup is AMAZING. I have super oily skin and it honestly stays on all day, with few exceptions. It is my favorite drugstore foundation. It gives a nice matte finish without making you look... lifeless. It is full coverage and honestly stunning. It is great! You can get it here for $12.99.
L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation
This foundation is actually pretty good. It is super hyped up, and for good reason. It is a little more matte than the Revlon ColorStay, but it is still really pretty on the skin. It is a medium to full coverage. You can get it here for $12.99.
Maybelline FaceStudio Master Conceal
Guys, this concealer is ridiculously full coverage and beautiful. If you aren't careful, it will crease. I defiantly recommend baking after application, but it is so full coverage that it's worth it. You can get it here for $8.99.
Where do I begin? As a girl with super oily skin, I have acquired a long list of powders that I like. Here are just a few.
