Anyone that knows me knows I love a bargain.  I love, love, love low-priced anything.  And makeup is no exception.  The costs of some high-end cosmetics can make some people gag – I won’t name names, but one company that comes to mind starts with the 3 letters M.A.C. lol.  So what is a fashion and cosmetic conscious lady to do when she wants to look good and not compromise quality???? Hmmmm……..Below will be some resources you can look into with the hopes that it saves you money and keeps you looking good.  I wasn’t a wiz in math but paying $3-6 versus $13-26………….

This first site has a pretty deep cosmetic database that shows the dupes of  high end products that you love at a less expensive price.

Many of the dupes in the above link will be from the below company.  I first heard of NYX Cosmetics on “RuPaul’s Drag Race”.  Yes drag queens showed me the way!!! I absolutely love the prices and was initially scared of what I would be getting, but the quality is great.  Deserves taking a look.

If you are into eyeshadows you may or may not have heard of Coastal Scents.  But the thrifty divas out there have nothing but positive things to say about their eyeshadows.  They do carry other cosmetics, so once again check it out.  What do you have to lose?
This company is kinda hit or miss for me, but for some of you it might be the makeup jackpot.  E.L.F. cosmetics are so low sometimes I wonder how they make a profit.  But I swear by their lip glosses and makeup brushes.  Their other items?  The jury is still out on that one, but hey $1 lip glosses???  You won’t be losing me as a customer anytime soon.

And last but not least who doesn’t remember this company as a teenage girl?  Wet n Wild has come a LONG, LONG, LONG, way since I last remember (and that was a long time ago!!).  Their color palettes have become more sophisticated, but their affordability has stayed the same.

So I hope I have given you some valuable resources to check out and save a buck.  And if you don’t wear makeup that’s fine.  I’m sure you know someone who does; so spread the word and help a sista out!
