Budget Beauty Products to Purchase

I have been using some beauty products that I have longed to write something about.  Since I don't have it like that to make the beauty product splurge, I found some amazing products that do just as well as high end brands.

I am addicted to L'Oreal EverCreme Sulfate- Free Moisture System Cleansing Creme!
My hair is of mixed texture wavy, curly when wet or can be blown straight. I have just finished my first bottle of this product, it doesn't strip my hair and has restored my hair to a renewed level of softness! As I got halfway through the bottle, I immediately went and purchased a second bottle. I saw commercials of the Wen product, but couldn't afford to indulge; hence, this L'Oreal EverCreme Shampoo product has returned the texture of my hair to its youthful softness. Since I don't have to spend money purchasing a ton of other products to get my hair where I want it to be, I need the most economical route to hair salvation. When I go wavy, I just used a dollop of gel,crunch and go. When I want to flatiron my locks I use serum and flatiron spray and I am Rapunzel! This shampoo has allowed me to dwindle down hair products that I have been using in the past, also the conditioner is not bad either.

Not to sound like a spokesperson for L'Oreal but I also a fan of the True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Foundation.
The shade I use is n7-8; I also use MAC, Lancome, and Clinique foundations, but since I am doing beauty on a budget I decided to give this product a try. And for the $13, well I think I spent less than that with CVS coupons, it gives me the coverage and even tone I need. I don't like my skin to feel "make-uppy" if you know what I mean.  This foundation provides my skin with a light radiant coverage I crave. It is a task to find the perfect foundation, so give this a try for you bpj's and budget-nistas! (P.S. I am not sponsored by this brand or affiliate marketer of L' Oreal... just so you know).

Ponds Luminous Clean Daily Exfoliating Cleanser is a great cleanser /exfoliant for my normal/ oily skin/ sensitive/ sometimes adult acne prone skin. There is no category for my skin during some seasons! The female skin is not always cooperative to work with, and that's why we have to spend so much on products trying to figure out this large organ! It is a treasure to find a product that works for you, but as we know, during the four seasons of the year, we have to change up accordingly.

Hence, I liken it to Clinique Foaming Cleanser, but this product has mild beads which are non irritating or drying to my skin. I used Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser to remove my makeup, then wash my face with the Ponds Luminous Clean Daily Exfoliating Cleanser. It does the job without over-drying my skin.

Nail Polish:
I like Rimmel Brand and it holds up well on my natural nails, currently using Steel Grey(taupe,brown- grey tone) great for work and play.
A go to neutral color in my mani collection.

I also like Pure Ice which can be found at Walmart, French Kiss (royal blue-pictured) and Scandal (like Vamp by Chanel) are my favorite colors. Pic posted on my instagram page... buttaflybytes. These colors are a complement to any skin tone.

Just a review of some staples I have been using the past months, give them a try or leave comments for some of your finds that I can test, try, and review. XOXO :)
