Walgreens Beauty Perfect Complexion brush set

Hello and happy Monday!  I purchased this brush set at  Walgreens Beauty Perfect Complexion brushes

The set was $8.99 USD.  I looked at several stores for a concealer brush, but couldn’t find any that I liked.  I didn’t need the other two brushes, but for the price I couldn’t resist.  I was pleasantly surprised when I got the brushes home.  The concealer brush was perfect, and I love the powder brush. I haven’t tried the foundation brush, as I only wear a BB cream. The powder brush is super fluffy and picks up the perfect amount of loose powder.

Here’s the description from Walgreens website:

The Walgreens Beauty Perfect Complexion Brush Set is handcrafted using only the finest materials and finished with the utmost care. The ultra-soft, top-quality synthetic bristles are ideal for expertly creating the perfect complexion.

Wet n Wild Reviews-Nail Polish, Balm Stain and Eye shadow primer

I’m really digging Wet N Wild these days.  I usually shy away from this brand due to the very low price. I.e. (crappy quality). So not true!  I was looking for an eye shadow primer, and did a little research on YouTube.  I tried Wet n Wild- Fergie’s Take on the day eyeshadow primer.  While I don’t have a problem with my shadow staying on all day, I do like making a color more intense. I had gotten a Mica Beauty eye primer in a recent Ipsy package. I loved how it worked, but had a reaction to it.  The ‘Take on the Day” works great.  You only need a small amount and I was able to intensify my eye shadow significantly. It was a bargain at Walgreens for only $3.79.

I bought the Megaslicks Balm Stain in Caffeine Fix for a whopping $1.99 during the same trip to Walgreens.  It’s a neutral color that is very moisturizing and easy to apply.  I love any kind of lip color that I don’t have to use a mirror to apply. A definite thumbs up!

Last but not least is the Wet N Wild Megalast salon nail color in On a Trip.  A pretty purple/cornflower blue color for $1.99 at Walgreens.  I haven’t really found the Wet n Wild line at most of my usual make up haunts. My favorite store Ulta doesn’t carry it. This polish is awesome!  There are 18 colors to choose from, but Walgreens only carried 8.  I have every color under the sun, but I saw a review by a fellow beauty blogger and thought I would give it a try.  This polish has a wide professional style brush, is Toluene & phthalate free.  It wears so well.  I’ve had it on for four days now, and it still looks great.  It is still as shiny as when I first applied it.  Walgreens has a sale going on right now, but one get one for 50% off.  I’ll be going there to get more for sure. Sorry about my man hands.  It’s such a pretty color, maybe my hands don’t look so ginormous after all.

Tips for Buying Beauty Products on EBay

I love to shop for beauty products.  I like trying new stuff.   I usually get most of my skin care products at Ulta.  I’m a rewards member and often have coupons.  I really like Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer with sunscreen. It has a broad spectrum SPF of 30, which is crucial.  I’ve been using it for about 6 months now.   The bottle is 1 ounce and lasts me about a month, using it every day.  I have seen a marked improvement in the tone of my skin.  I had a few sun spots that have virtually faded to nothing. It has also softened some of my wrinkles.

I’ve been spending around $20 a month for one bottle.   I try to get it on sale when I can.  After doing some research, I’ve discovered that EBay has the best price.  I recently paid $10.50 for my last bottle of my new favorite day cream.

Today I checked the price on several websites, they are as follows:

Walmart.com-$17.97, Ulta.com-$21.99, Walgreens.com-$23.49 and Ebay.com $12.50 with free shipping.  I recommend buying products you use all the time on EBay.  I did buy a ROC moisturizer a month ago on EBay for half of what it normally costs. I read positive reviews; however it ended up irritating my skin, so I stopped using it. Had I bought the ROC at Ulta, I could have returned it.

Make sure to check for an expiration date when shopping on EBay.  Sunscreen will break down after one year, and not be as effective.

EBay is a great place to buy perfume too.  I have purchased perfume that I haven’t been able to find anywhere else for a reasonable price.  I can’t remember the last time I bought fragrance at a department store.  The best value on fragrance seems to be when you buy a gift set. One thing I have noticed on fragrance lotion is, once it’s opened the scent doesn’t last for very long.  If you aren’t going to be using it the all the time, I would skip it.

I love when I can shop from my couch and get great deals. Plus no coupons to clip!
