September Budget Beauty Faves

Hi Guys, I know... it's been a while. So I'm back to share with you all the beauty products I have fallen in love with during the month of September and they're all really affordable!

1. e.l.f. Nourishing Cuticle Pen
Purchased at Target
Price $1
Cuticle Pen

I'm not the biggest fan of e.l.f. products. I do enjoy their blushes but haven't really tried any of their beauty products but something told me to take a chance on this cuticle pen. It was only $1 at Target so I took a chance. I love this thing. I can really see a difference, and another great thing is it's a quick dry formula so you can use it anywhere, even on the go.

2. L.A. Colors Lipstick Value Kit in Pomegranate Tea
Purchased at Dollar Tree
Price: $1

Yes, I shop at Dollar Tree. I love going in there to see what crazy little things I can find. I feel like I hit the jackpot with this L.A. Colors value set. This has easily become one of my favorite lipsticks. It's gorgeous and the color stays on  forever. It came with a lip liner and gloss that are equally as great and all for just $1. You can also find these value sets on cherryculture.com. They have a variety of options from eye shadow, nail polish and blush sets.

3. NYX Cosmetics Copper Blush
Purchased at nyxcosmetics.com
Price: $6


About a month ago I scored a deal where I purchased $30 worth of NYX cosmetics for just $15. Which semi made up for items I wasn't able to get during their last dollar sale fiasco. I got everything I ordered basically at 50% which is great. As you all may know, I'm a huge NYX fan. This blush is a definite must have. It works great on virtually every skin tone and looks great alone or over a blush. I've been wearing it over my NYX cream blush in orange (which is my go-to everyday color) and it looks amazing! It has a lil' hint of shimmer to it that gives you a nice sun kissed glow.

4. NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams
Purchased at nyxcosmetics.com and Ulta
Price: $6

What I've realized about myself is that I'm not really into being super glossed up. I love lipsticks way more than gloss and was curious of how matte would look. Well I love these things. I purchased two in Addis Ababa (pictured) and Antwerp which is a really cute coral color. The soft matte lip creams actually make your lips feel smooth and not dry like you would think and the color pay off is great. Another thing I love about Matte lipstick is that you can go for the bolder colors without making it seem over the top. Also check out their matte lipsticks, the colors are great and if you do like extra shine they all look great with gloss on top.

5. L.A. Colors Value Kit Blush in Enchanted
Purchased at Dollar Tree
Price: $1

Yes, I bought the blush too. I can't say if the brush was good quality as someone with sticky fingers had stolen the brush out of the value set (smh). Had I not found this picture I would've never known there was a brush. Nevertheless, for a dollar this is still totally worth it. I bought this in enchanted which features two berry colored blushes. They're not individually named, but I'm totally in love with the darker shade. I've been wearing it a lot and its a great change from my normal orange and pinks. It's a bit dusty in the pan and there is fall out, but once it's on your cheeks it applies great. Great pigmentation and totally worth more than the price!

Ok, so those are my budget beauty finds that I've been obsessed with over the past month. Hope you enjoyed this and check out these items if you see them and let me know what you think!

Lux for Less: Prada vs. Jeffrey Campbell

Ok, so this edition of Lux for Less is still a little pricey but I thought it was still worth posting. Prada did these interesting (for lack of a better word) oxford espadrilles for their Spring 2011 season and Miss Rih Rih was seen sporting a version of these on more than one occassion. Oxfords and wingtips have been on trend for a while and I love them. I think I may even own too many pairs. But, I'm not to sure about these.. hmmmm. Anyways, the real deals retail for $795 but you can purchase a pair of Jeffrey Campbell's for a lot less. If you're feelin em' check them out after the jump.
