I needed to replace a few essentials and instead of going to Sephora (almost 4 months since my last purchase!), I thought I would try some new-to-me drugstore alternatives to save some money. Here’s how much I saved vs. what I would have bought at Sephora:
NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Espresso: $11.99 vs. ABH Brow Wiz in Dark Brown: $27.00
NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Black: $11.99 vs. ABH Brow Wiz in Ebony: $27.00
NYX Black Matte Liquid Liner: $9.99 vs. KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper: $25.00
NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray: $9.99 vs. KVD Lock ’N Load Makeup Setting Mist: $30.00
Could have spent: $109
Only spent: $43.96
This NYX Butter Gloss is amazing and quickly became a must-have in my purse. The doe foot applicator is extremely soft, the gloss smells sweet and delicious, and it leaves my lips feeling conditioned – like I have balm on. It doesn’t last very long, an hour at most, but for $7.99 I don’t mind.
NYX calls Angel Food Cake a True Mauve – to me it’s the perfect pinkish-nude. I am interested to try out some of the bolder shades, and will be sure to review them when I do. ♥
