$20 Makeup Challenge

Leave a Comment
I was tagged by the adorable Chelsea from Tiger Love Beauty to do the $20 Makeup Challenge. Check out her blog! She has an awesome series that she just started called "Pinspiration" in which she recreates makeup looks found on Pinterest. Best idea ever!

This tag is great because it shows that you don't need to spend a lot on products to have a full face of makeup. Anyone that has been by this blog often enough knows how much I love my high end products, but I don't discriminate when it comes to makeup. No ma'am! I am an equal opportunity beauty product purchasing fiend! Because I have an obscene amount of makeup in my collection, I didn't have to go out and purchase anything at all. Here's what I used!

There's no particular rhyme or reason to this arrangement...

Wet n Wild Coverall Pressed Powder - Light | $3
This powder provides pretty good coverage for a foundation and for concealer.
I like how it works as a foundation rather than a setting powder. 
It does a pretty good job doubling as a concealer when used with a concealer brush.

e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder - St. Lucia | $3
Yay for two for one products!
I like this little duo, but it doesn't get a lot of love in my collection.
The bronzing color is very blendable and easy to use.
The blush is a nice peachy pink that goes with everything.

Wet n Wild palette - Comfort Zone | $5 (on sale for $3!)
I love this palette, and it has been in my favorites.
I used all of the colors on the left side as they describe. 
Really creative, right?

Revlon Grow Luscious mascara - Blackest Black | $5 ($4 with coupon!)
This was my first time using it.
The brush is huge, but I didn't have any problems with it.
I like it so far! Let me know if you want a review of this or of anything else listed!

Wet n Wild MegaLast Liquid Lip Color - Rose To The Occasion | $3 ($2 with coupon!)
I'm not really a fan of these long wearing liquid lipsticks.
It made my lips feel really dry after a while. 
If it hadn't had a coupon on the tube, I probably wouldn't have purchased it.
Oh well! It came in handy for this post, and maybe I'll need it for a long day eventually!\
I do really like the color.

A low key look for a low key day.
If you were to go out and buy all of these products at full price, this look would total $19. I found one item on sale and used coupons for two others, so I only paid $15 for everything. Sweet deal!

I challenge all of you to take on the $20 Makeup Challenge! Please let me know if you have a favorite ridiculously inexpensive beauty product! I love hearing from you!
