Beauty Dupes Part II

Now that you have your leggings and shades, how about more money for some Target shoes or even better, Home Goods trips.

#6 Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara//L’Oreal Lash Paradise

So many people have raved about this Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced. I just knew I would put this on and be photoshoot ready, no false lashes needed. So naturally, it didn’t work for me. But don’t you worry, there is glory in the Wal-Mart aisle. Lash Paradise by L’Oreal is my everyday mascara. It gives me volume and hashtag glamour. Tip: Use this primer first, it really helps to lengthen your lashes!


#7 Hourglass Ambient Bronzer//Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

Bronzer is my favorite makeup product, hands down. I have tried them all. As someone who has quite the cabbage patch shaped face, contouring became my life saver years and years ago. Also, in my late 20’s I finally understood the importance of not tanning your face. So again, bronzer swooped in and said “I got you girl.” $52.00 for a brown powder may seem like a lot of money, and for this Hourglass bronzer, it was. I learned to lower my expectations of being an instant supermodel after this purchase fail. However, this $13.23 hottie lives up to its’ butter-smooth promise. I pretty much bathe in bronzer when I apply it, face, neck, chest, etc. So this price point really works for me and my ways.

#8 Beauty Blender//Real Techniques Sponge

I don’t like applying my foundation with a brush, there I said it. I know all the fancy people do. I also know I am not fancy. I love beauty blenders but tend to use mine way past their prime because I refuse to buy a new one for $20.00. On one of my beloved Target trips, I found Real Techniques sponges and got TWO for under $10! The flat side comes in handy for applying concealer and finishing powder and I have officially converted.

#9 Dermaflash//Schick Dermaplaning Tool

Have you ever done dermaplaning on your face? You should. You can get it done professionally and/or DIY at home. Now, let me just say, I’ve had it done professionally and of course they do a much better job than I do, but the peach fuzz and dead skin are relentless. You DO NOT need a fancy tool to get a baby bottom face. These Schick razors do the trick and are $5.00. WARNING: you can cut yourself if you’re not careful. If you have no idea what you’re doing, watch some youtube videos first and practice on small sections SLOWLY.

#10 Shape Tape Concealer//Maybelline Age Rewind

The Shape Tape concealer is where it’s at. It’s full coverage and makes me look like my baby slept all night. Worth every single penny. But you know me and how hard it is for me to commit to a full face of my good makeup on blah days. So, I have my Instant Age Rewind concealer to lessen my worries and cover my bags. Sometimes it takes two layers, but it gets the job done. Both brands have a wide variety of shades to choose from as well.

When are we going to Home Goods?

Cheers, Lana.
