I have a little confession…I have been spending way too much money on makeup and cosmetics lately. I went through a phase where I bought almost nothing and then spring hit and I lost my goddamn mind, guys. LOST IT. LOST IT.
I think a combination of factors was at play. First of all, winter was really long so when all of the spring collections started cropping up it was even more exciting than usual. Second thing is that my husband and I are about to close on our first house, and you may not see how that would make me buy makeup, but let me explain. First of all I’m definitely a stress shopper and the stress that goes along with the home buying process is just so dumb…it’s not even like real, big-deal stressful stuff it’s just the dumbest little annoying things…it’s making me crazy. I’m literally getting email right now as I type this that they need transcripts of things I have already given them, to prove the things were valid, waaaaah! I hate bureaucracy.
So I’ve been stress buying makeup, and then in the back of my mind I have also been thinking “Once we buy the house I’m only going to want to spend money on paint and furniture so I better buy makeup now while I can” So there you have it. The perfect storm.
That being said, I think it’s time to take a moment to appreciate the little things, and by little things I mean some really great beauty products under $5. You can get some seriously convenient things and very well formulated makeup for just a few bucks, so instead of being a totally bad influence for once I will show you some of my favorite bargain finds!
So if you’ve been looking for some great beauty products under $5 then give these a try! I seriously have every single one of these things in my daily repertoire right alongside much more expensive stuff and I reach for these just as much. That’s saying something!
Buuuuuut if you want to go and blow all your money on high end luxury products, then I definitely am in no position to judge…but like, tweet me pictures or leave me comments or something because, hello! Half the fun is talking about our cool stuff and discussing what we’re gonna do with it right? 😉
