A broke girl's favorite beauty stuff...

I blogged before about how I am not fashionable in any sense of the word.... I'm not. I don't know much about clothing, makeup or hair.... but I know that a lot of stuff that I find to help in those areas are out of my price range... I have to find stuff to make me feel good about myself in stores like Wal-Mart or Target, on poor girl budget...

This is just a broke girl's opinion of good beauty products...
Tryin' to look good on a budget...

NYC lengthening mascara--- super cheap but I like it.
I like it better than some of the $7-$15 tubes!

ELF Eyelide Primer--- it's about $3 at Target and I love it.
It might even be better than Bare Minerals' 'well rested' powder that I can't afford.

Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer--- This was about $6 at Wal-Mart and it covers dark undereyes really well!

Rimmel London--- 002 Smokey  Brun    This is the set for the perfect brown smokey eye!
 It's only $3 or so. I have the purple set as well, but I don't like it as much. 

Remington hair straightener....
I can go to bed with wet hair (my hair curls and waves when it dries naturally), and have perfectly straight hair within 7 minutes in the morning.
It also will do curls like a Chi.

Dove Amplifier Mousse--- I can't afford Aquage or whatever, so this is my broke girl verson.
The bottle says to apply it to the hands and work it in, but I apply it straight to the scalp, work it on and then blow dry. It creates so much lift at the root!

Suave Dry Shampoo--- I love this stuff! It helps me go three+ days without shampooing. Don't judge! :)

Salon Grafix Hair Spray--- This is better than Aqua Net, which used to be my favorite.

Teasing Pick--- enough said :)

So to all you poor girls like me.... what are your favorite beauty products??
Until Next Time...


  1. Thanks for the tips on your "poor girl" budget friendly items.

    I will try the mascara out soon.

    For me I love the dollar tree (gasp) for items like lip gloss, etc.

    At times I can find name brand eyeliner, lip gloss, etc.

    As for name brand hair care items, coupons, I go online and print off coupons for shampoo, mouse, hair spray, etc.

  2. I buy so much at the Dollar Tree, but have never bought their make-up. My sister sells Mary Kay, so I get a lot of stuff from her--like lipstick and foundation and chapstick is my lipgloss of choice. I'll have to see what I can find at DT! Thanks for the tip!

    I have bought a black palette for smokey eye at Dollar General and loved it!! I think it was only $1!

    That mascara is Sky Rise by the way. I reall like it for the price!

  3. Perfect, thanks! I googled "can't afford Aquage", found your post, and got just the recommendations I needed. :)

  4. Glad I could help Ferial. I don't know much about fashion or beauty, but I shared what I know :)
