Cheap Discovery – ChapStick Hydration Lock

12 Oct

We live in Chicago so we know a thing or two about chapped/dry lips.  My normal go-to is either Blistex Complete Moisture or anything Burts Bee’s and Vaseline at night.  Seriously, I swear by Vaseline and keep a tiny little tub of it in my purse at all times.

But I have something new that I like ALMOST as much as I like Vaseline – ChapStick Hydration Lock!

Image

It feels great, “tastes” great – a lovely Vanilla and acts as a lip primer for lipstick.  All of this for a $2.99 price tag.

Urban Decay Naked 2 dupe for $5

18 Jun

I found this adorable little E.l.F eyeshadow palette at Marshall’s for a whole $4.99 yesterday.  I have been on the hunt for a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette for a wedding I am going to this weekend and I think this might be it.  The colors are incredibly close to what comes with the Naked2 but then some.

LOOK AT THE CUTE LITTLE BOOK IT COMES IN!  AHHH.  So Cute.  Perfect for travel!

Here is the Naked 2 Palette for comparison:

I have not shelled out the $50 for the Naked 2 palette so I can’t officially call this a Dupe War but the shimmer in both palettes is very similar as are the colors.  Totally a great palette for daytime wear.

I am going to a wedding in Yosemite so I wanted to have nice earthy tones with some playful shimmer that is why this E.L.F. palette is worth it for me.  It’s small, so perfect to toss in my purse of makeup bag.  Plus the $45 dollars I saved i’m going to spend on filling my face with all the San Francisco sushi ever.  -kassi
