Anyone that knows me, even in the slightest, knows I could live at Sephora. It is incredibly easy to get sucked into their beautiful displays of the hottest new products. However, at the end of your trip you’re also met with a reality check. This ish is expensive! Yes there are products that I love that have an absurd price tag, BUT the reason I can afford them is because I have found other products that are much more wallet friendly. Don’t get it twisted, some of these products are dupes for their higher end alternatives, and dare I say some have REPLACED higher priced products I thought I couldn’t live without.
More often than not I put on lipstick to finish any makeup look. My lips are chapped and dry regardless of the season so I have to make an effort to exfoliate and keep them hydrated. Before I start my makeup routine I like to use E.L.F.’s Lip Exfoliator. I apply it to my lips in a circular motion and then take a damp cotton round to remove the scrub. Follow that up with your favorite lip balm and your lips will be plump, smooth, and ready for your favorite lipstick by the time you’re done with your makeup!
