Beauty on a Budget!

Hey everyone!

I’m a firm believer that you don’t need to spend a fortune on beauty products to look good. There was a time when makeup was either cheap but low quality or expensive and great quality. Thankfully that gap has blurred and brands like NYX and Elf have shown us that it is possible to get great quality on a shoestring budget. I’ve put together a list of products that I believe are comparable to higher end products and are a personal favourite of mine. 


Left to right: NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, Prestige Skin Loving Minerals Bronzing Powder, Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara and Elf Hypershine Gloss. 



NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams: These are probably the best lipsticks I have ever tried. The formula is creamy and lightweight, the colour is incredibly pigmented and the range of shades is awesome. There isn’t one thing I’d change about these lipsticks. 

NYX is stocked at Target in Australia. 

Priced at $12.95 each. 

Prestige Skin Loving Minerals Bronzing Powder: I’ve blogged about this product previously, so I’ll keep it short. This is a high quality bronzer with an incredibly creamy formula. 

Prestige is stocked at most Priceline stores or online. 

Priced at $29.95 each. 

Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara: this is somewhat of a cult product and it’s easy to see why. It gives lashes a bold, thick look and also adds incredible length. Perfect for when you are after a dramatic look. 

purchased mine off the Crush Cosmetics website. 

Priced at $12.95 each.

Elf Hypershine Gloss: this is the perfect lipgloss formula; shiny but not sticky. They come in a range of colours and are a steal at $2.00 each. 

Stocked at Kmart stores.

Priced at $2.00 each.
