This Months PickUp | Summer Must Haves

This summer I had to fall in love with shopping on a budget. I was on a right budget this summer because I was not working and I had so many bills to pay and then on top of that I am making my big move to London. I had to downgrade on my beauty products but let me tell you it was worth it. I found some great finds for half the cost.

Lets start at the very top of this pictures. Recently I’ve been in love with high lighten my face when I am doing my makeup. As I was watching YouTube videos I realized that I could not afford to buy the high end products this summer. My sorority sister bought the Elf High Definition Powder which retails at only $6.00 compared to high end stuff and it works magic. I am in love with his product to set my high light and I can’t stop using it.

Next up is the NYX COSMETICS HD Finishing Powder (Banana). It is retailed at $9.99 at Ulta. I am in love love love love love love love love love love love love love with this product. My roommate told me about it and it is magical. I use this to set my highlight and you know what it’s be popping.

Usually I’ve been using makeup wipes to take off of my eyes since I’ve moved in with my new roommates they’ve thought me a few new things. This Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover is retailed at $4.99 at Target. Its the cheapest that I’ve found so far. Its very smooth and gentle on the skin. It is also oil-free and doesn’t burn your eyes like the makeup wipes. I still use makeup wipes but on my face instead of my eyes.

I love a good smelling room and pretty candles. I purchased this candle earlier this spring and I finally burned it. The smell lights up the room. I got it from Bath & BodyWorks for $8 and I don’t think they have that candle any more but I found it on Ebay for $32.00. If you really want it you should purchase it.

I love the scent of this eye shadows every time I open up this palette I am blown away with the smell of chocolate. The Too Faced | CHOCOLATE BAR EYE SHADOW COLLECTION is retailed at $49.00. It was a summer must have and I had to splurge on this one. I absolutely love this product. The colors are very pigmented and show up so beautifully.

You know we have to lay those edges. Yes the best edge control is Creme of Nature with Argon Oil Perfect Edges | Edge Control. I have used so many edge controls and this one is the best one heads down. It does not leave that white flaky residue.  This product is retailed at $4.69. You can also find this at your local beauty supply store.

I am in love with eye lashes. I use to hit up Sally’s and get those expensive eye lashes and then throw them away. I recently found out that you can purchase eye lashes at the beauty supply store for only A DOLLA . Yes girl, hit up your local Urban Beauty Supply store and pick up these lashes for a $1.00.

Last but not least is the amazing NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. It is retailed for $29.00 and its the best $29.00 I’ve ever spent. It goes on so smooth and does not cake. I love the after effect of this concealer. If you have a chance please purchase this concealer you will not be disappointed.

I hope you guys enjoy  my summer must have’s for the summer of 2015.

FYI – The dog is for decoration I got it for free form Victoria Secret. (:

Until Next Time – Stay Young, Stay Fabulous, Stay Beautiful *kiss kiss*
