To splurge? Or not to splurge?
If you have ever asked yourself this while holding that super expensive makeup product in your hand, then you know all to well the struggle to find quality makeup products while on a budget. Some beauty products are worth the splurge while others are not. So before you break the bank, take a look at these two hidden gem websites that carry amazingly awesome products that I know you budget babes will love.
First up is bh cosmetics. If you’re into youtube makeup tutorials then theres a good chance you have heard of this website. I heard of it through the youtube makeup community and have been hooked ever since. This websites offers a wide range of products from eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, blushes and everything else makeup. The first thing I ever purchased from the site was the 120 color eyeshadow palette. Yes, that’s right 120 eyeshadows packed into one palette– how convenient! Here’s a look at the palette.
I loved this palette because buying all of these colors individually would’ve been super expensive and also keeping track of all the colors would have been nerve-wracking. Bh cosmetics solved all of those problems by making this inexpensive palette. The eye looks I can create are endless! I also love the fact that all the colors are together so I won’t run into the problem of that lone eyeshadow I never use because its somewhere in the back of my makeup storage. More, the colors are so pigmented (which is critical when it comes to bright shadows). Here are some some swatches:
This is pretty awesome color payoff for just $14.95! But If you are hesitant about buying the products, go ahead and follow them on instagram at @bhcosmetics where they are always giving away free products to lucky followers.
The second hidden gem is Qosmedix. This site mainly focuses on the tools of the trade. So you won’t find any makeup, but what you will find are all the tools you need to apply it. This site is perfect for makeup artists as it carries all the implements that are essential for the job such as disposable mascara wands, disposable lipgloss wands, spatulas and much more. The best thing about Qosmedix is that it sells makeup blenders for only a $1.95 compared to the original BeautyBlender which retails for $20.00 at Sephora. Here it is:
This magic little tool blends my concealer perfectly! When using the makeup blender with my concealer, I simply tap the blender along all the areas I applied the concealer until there are no harsh lines. You can also use this blender to apply your foundation. Ladies, at just 1.95 each why not?!
We all love makeup but sometimes not enough to spend a ton of money on it. These websites will have you looking nice at a great price.
See you soon divas!
