Fall 2012: to Splurge or Budget {beauty}

Fall 2012:Splurge or Budget

Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara
I rave about this mascara all the time. Its inexpensive and works! Perhaps it's the wand shape but this mascara separates and lengthens my lashes.

Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balms
These lip pencils are actually hydrating lip balms. Those intimidated by lip colour can slowly introduce these into their makeup collection as these are sheer. Lips are left with a hint of colour, "like your lips but better!". Listed as a splurge, Clinique can easily be classified as a budget brand if you consider buying during their Clinique Bonus time. I love their Bonus', especially their makeup bags.

Yves Rocher Replumping Serum Foundation
A great medium coverage foundation. Yves Rocher has many sales throughout the year so easily a budget item. Only negative is their shade selection tends to be on the pink side but if you can find a match a really good foundation.

Givenchy Phenomen' Eyes Mascara
I normally wouldn't spend more than $10 on a mascara but there are exceptions and here is one of them. The 3 spheres wand (slightly similar to the Rimmel Sexy Curves wand) coats each lash. Result=long, lush lashes without the heaviness, feels like nothing on.

Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation
Medium coverage foundation but with a very natural look. Mask like foundation is a 90's thing, this foundation covers without looking cakey. As for lifting, not much to lift (yet)!

Annabelle TwistUp Retractable Lipstick Crayon
Provides great coverage, not a full-on colour so no need to worry about "bleeding" outside your lip line. Prefer the darker shades for Fall, the fool-proof applicator makes it a simple no brainer lip product.

What are your Splurge or Budget beauty buys this Fall?



  1. I have been thinking about getting the Annabelle Twist up Crayon for some time now but I still love Clinique Chubby Sticks.
