Dupe Alert!! Drugstore Dupes for High End Skin Care (L’Oreal vs…L’Oreal?)

IMAG7959

 

Hey guys, hope that you enjoy the video today. Please understand that I’m not in fact endorsing three out of the four products and in fact since the Genifique, Energie de Vie Liquid Moisturiser and Hydra Nutrition all have large quantities of fragrance in them, I would in fact recommend that you stay away from them because it’s not good for the skin. Although I can’t speak for anyone else, those three all made me break out to one degree or another, so sensitive skin beware.

That being said, if you already use either of the two high end products to good results, you’re now aware of two dupes that work just as well. If you’ve been wanting to try either and my warnings haven’t deterred you? Here ya go!

Get Ready/Get To Know Me; Chit Chat While Trying Clinique Even Better Glow Foundation.

Y’all…why did I completely forget to upload the post for yesterday? Oh yeah, probably because I have a lung infection all I wanted to do was get some sleep last night. Don’t worry, better late than never and since it’s a video no harm no foul. It’s a long on though so settle in to see me in my true form, a total and absolute ass.

Holiday 2017: Three Must Buy Ulta Exclusives.

Is anyone else hella exhausted by all the sales and new stuff that seems to be dropping daily? Hell I know I am. The Sephora Rouge/VIB sale just freaking ended and here we are at Thanksgiving and now Black Friday once again. I ain’t buying a damn thing else, not least of all because between the Rouge sale and Ulta, I’ve already dropped a tonne of money in the last two weeks.

Holiday 2017: Christian Siriano Brush Set Walgreens Exclusive + Changes to the Blog Format

Holiday 2017: The $15 Brush Set That’s Saving My Edges.

I am not into drugstore makeup or accessories, I’ve tried and with very few exceptions such as European drugstore items and the rare American stuff, I’m just not here for most of it. But Walgreens in like my one stop shop, I go there almost daily cause I can find everything I need from soy milk (cheaper than the grocery store at that) to bath and home items.

So when I went in the other day to get something and no one was at the counter, I started twirling to the music in my head as I’m wont to do when I forget that I’m out in the world and should hide my weirdness, and immediately stopped when on my last twirl my eyes landed on this brush set, and then the big ass 50% off sign right above it.

Now, of most drugstore stuff I tend to like Wet n Wild a lot, I’ve bought over the last year almost all the collections that they’ve debuted. I haven’t blogged most of it unfortunately, but Wet n Wild has some part in my weekly makeup games. Five minutes after spotting it I had walked out with it because pretty and cheap. I was a little concerned about the performance because well, it’s a drugstore makeup brush set, but I rationalised that for $15, I could live with the disappointment.

BareMinerals BarePro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation.

So I’ve become something of a fan of BareMinerals in the last year or so, I don’t precisely remember what led me to this brand that was not only completely off my radar but on my “oh hell no, never ever buy list”. My issue with BareMinerals was that I’d used it when they first debuted and only had powder products, in which Bismuth Oxychloride was one of the main ingredients and to which I am highly allergic. Plus they looked like a really dated brand, for people my mum’s age so…

Holiday 2017: The LE Diorific Matte Fluid Lip & Cheek Velvet Bangs Just as Hard as Last Year.

IMG_20171020_144613304

Last year I absolutely fell in love with the Dior Matte cheek fluids once I saw them on the Sephora site. They were even more gorgeous in person when I went on one of my rare jaunts into an actual store to see them in real life, you can read my review and see swatches of the shades from my review last year here. Last year I only wound up picking up two of the four limited edition shades and this year was no different.
