WEEKEND BEAUTY BUYS: Conceal. Balm. Perfect.


Despite the heat, this weekend was pretty descent. It was tax free weekend for clothes, shoes, and some computers here in Tennessee, so my sister and I took a small advantage in this bi-annual opportunity and bought some little pieces here and there. Also, I ate a lot, actually I ate too much, but I’m going to work on that today.

In between combing racks of clothes and stuffing my face, I was able to pick up a few beauty buys. The first thing I bought was NYX full coverage concealer. I only used this once on yesterday, but the coverage is great and it lasted most of the day. So, not a bad buy.

The next thing I picked up was a repurchase of Clinique’s Chubby stick in Woppin Watermelon. This is my go-to balm for a natural pink pout. Plus, these little chubby sticks are so moisturizing! There great.

The last thing I got was a Garnier BB Cream in deep, which is a product that I’ve been meaning to try for so long. So, since it was on clearance for 7o% off at Target and it was the shade I would need, it felt like the perfect $4 beauty score. Plus, everyone needs at least one BB cream in their makeup arsenal.

Stay Stylish!

  1. NYX has some fantastic concealers. I have a few of these in different shades, and I also found the elusive orange one, which is perfect for anyone that has dark circles. it hides everything. I’ve used the Garnier BB Creme but wasn’t a huge fan. My fave so far is Maybelline’s and Rimmel London.

    1. Yeah, I’m not a fan of the Garnier BB cream, too. I need to try the one from Rimmel, but based on some reviews I’ve seen, it might not be good for my combo/acne-prone skin. I’m still going to try it though. 🙂
