Makeup Without Spending It Up

Hi all,

Today I would love to share some make up secrets I have picked up over the years to look your best without spending all you possess.

Maybelline Mascara 

To start: masacara. A staple in many girls’ makeup routines but with high end brand prices, it can really add up. One of the best mascaras I have used is Maybelline Volum’ Express Mascara. I have used what feels like every mascara out there and have found that nearly all leave pesky crumbs, especially if your mascara is not fresh.

However, this mascara gives amazing volume and length yet little to no crumbs! This level of flawless lash yet no crumbs I have only ever seen in high end brands such as Lancôme. The search is over! High-end-amazing lashes can be affordable!


The next must-have staple in any girls’ make up bag is of course, foundation. One foundation I have tried which majorly surpasses any others is L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Foundation which comes in a small glass vile. This foundation has been raved about by so many youtube makeup gurus, I decided to try it. It blends so perfectly and literally disappears into your skin yet leaves amazing medium to full coverage.

This foundation can be up to $19 at Shopper’s Drugmart however which is by no means cheap! However, Walmart Canada offers free shipping on their website, as well as L’Oreal True Match only being $12.98!

However, be careful when buying this product as to not confuse it with it’s sister product L’Oreal True Match LUMI which comes in a bigger bottle with a pump. This foundation is the worst I have ever used. It literally left me oil-slick, not a word of a lie. It was also extremely shiny and came off so easily. So if you have combination to oily-skin like me, the LUMI version is definitely not for you.

Let me know what you guys think!

Happy primping 🙂
