5 DRUGSTORE BRUSHES UNDER $10

When it comes to Makeup Brushes you do not need to spend a ton of money for results. There are soooo many fabulous options at the Drugstore and for this post I want to talk about my 5 must have drugstore brushes! Not only are these affordable drugstore brushes but also all under $10 and can be found at Ulta Beauty & Target!

Elf Cosmetics Flawless Face Brush – $6.00: This brush is absolutely perfect for powder foundation. If you have been following me for a while you know I am a huge MAC Studio Fix Powder fan. Because the brush is a bit more dense it packs on so much product. Its so soft and is not too big either. The size is actually another great feature. Its compact enough to fit in a smaller makeup bag. Some days when I am doing my makeup on the train I will use it for my powder foundation, bronzer and then blush.

Real Techniques Expert Concealer Brush – $6.99: New to my collection but only after a few uses I am in love. This brush actually gave me this idea for this Drugstore Brushes post lol! This blends out concealer without streaks and the bristles are nice and soft which is important for such a delicate area of the face. When it comes to pot concealers using a brush makes them so much easier but I have been using this for all of mine.

Real Techniques Powder Brush – $9.99: When it comes to setting your whole face this brush will be your best friend. I do not always set my whole face but when I do this is the only brush I reach for.  The size and shape allow product to sweep over the entire face effortlessly. I have also used this for powder foundation but found the Elf Face Brush to work better. However this can be a multi – tasker in your collection!

Real Techniques Blush Brush – $8.99: Blush is my fav and when you have the right tools it is even better. With the shape you can get product perfect on the apple of your cheeks or can even use this as a bronzing brush to carve out your cheek bones. Another multi – tasker but I prefer this as a blush brush!

Elf Cosmetics Small Stipple Brush – $3.00: The cheapest on this list yet can do so much! I have used this for liquid foundation, cream blush, cream bronzer and cream contour. This brush is fool proof and a must have!

5 Minute Makeup: Must Have Products For A Quick Face!

When it comes to a quick makeup face we all want to be able to just slap it on and go. With two kids and working everyday I have found products that make my 5 minute makeup routine work. It does not require a lot of tools either which I prefer because sometimes I am doing my makeup on the train on my way to work (guilty! lol). Who else does this? Please tell me I am not the only one! Even if I don’t have all the tools I need as long as I have baby wipes lol or makeup wipes in my bag I am just find with using my hands and fingers.

Do I think you need these exact products? Not at all but these are the foundation products I have found that I need for the “I don’t have time and I need to look awake makeup and only have 5 minutes!” #momlife

5 Minute Makeup Products:

Click Products To Shop

Jouer Tinted Luminizing Tinted Moisturizer: Whatever BB Cream or CC cream works for you this is a must. Or maybe you need more full coverage so you have your favorite foundation that works best for you. I just prefer to be able to squeeze it on my hands, put  it on my face and keep going. The Jouer tinted moisturizer is one of my favs because its luminous enough to wake up my skin but does not leave me looking greasy. I am in shade Golden which also gives me a beautiful natural color. Sometimes foundations without adding tons of other face products you can looked washed out. I can just put this on and it looks nice. This one also comes in MATTE, see it here. 

MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Stick: I love this concealer for quick makeup days. Its very blendable and creamy, easy to apply because its a stick, has medium coverage and is a natural matte finish. I use shade NC 20

Makeup Revolution Baked Bronzer: This bronzer is a dupe for hourglass (See my DUPE LIST HERE) and is only $6!!! Its available in 3 shades at Ulta and gives a perfect amount of warmth to the skin without looking to dark. It also has a beautiful shimmer to it but not glittery at all. I also brush this on my eyelids to give my eyes a wash of color. I have been using bronzer as an eyeshadow for some time now and absolutely obsessed!

MAC Blush in WARM SOUL: Where has this blush been my whole life?!! I am not sure what took me so long but this blush pretty much has a cult following and now I know why. Its the perfect nude blush. Its described as a “mid tone beige with gold pearl”

L’Oreal Mascara: Honestly you can put any of the L’Oreal mascaras in front of me and I will use them. The newest one L’Oreal Paradise is on the top of the list but you can not go wrong with Original Voluminous, Carbon Black or Lash Paradise. If you don’t own any of these I strongly suggest them. I prefer them over any high end mascara!

MAC Great Brows & Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel: So lets just say my eyebrows are thin (insert being a teen in the 90’s here) and do not have great shape to them. If I don’t fill in my brows even the slightest when I have on makeup, I don’t feel put together.  I have tried a few different powders but MAC has won me over once again. I personally love the Dior Brow Style Pencil as well but in a hurry I just take the powder fill in a bit and lock it in with the Anastatsia Clear Brow Gel. I know this brow gel is expensive but it literally keeps everything in place and my powder and or pencil product in place which I need.

MAC Blankety & NYX Butter Gloss in Fortune Cookie: MAC Blankety is my all time must have nude lip color. Its the perfect shade for me (see MAC NUDE swatches Here) When I add a bit of NYX butter gloss in Fortune Cookie on top it gives a great shiny every day nude for me.

NYX STORE OPENING EVENT: WOODFIELD MALL

A NYX free standing store has finally landed in the Chicago area and I could not be happier. NYX Cosmetics offers some of the best quality at the drugstore with affordable price tags (insert my fav $6 concealer here lol). You may be thinking, what makes the free standing store so different from the massive selections available at Ulta?!!?? Trust me I thought the same things until I had the pleasure to attend the NYX Store Opening Preview Event.  It is not a very large store, maybe a bit smaller than your average free standing MAC store. However I will say the amount of products offered by NYX Cosmetics is anything short of amazing along with the features the store offers. We are use to seeing the products offered at Ulta or even Walgreen’s  but once you are inside a NYX Store you are taken back.

The store is located inside the Woodfield Mall right outside MACY’s on the lower level.  The walls are covered from top to bottom with products with NYX colors: black, white and hot pink! Its my dream lol When you walk in you see the Beauty Bar where you can swatch, watch and play! The NYX Makeup Artists are on hand to answer any questions and best part?!!  They offer one on one lessons with a NYX Makeup Artist where you can learn pro tips and artistry tricks!  How fun is that!!?

NYX STORE OPENING

NYX Store Features:

  • Testers, Testers, Testers
  • Create your own eye shadow palettes
  • Take Home Foundation Samples
  • Digital Assistance with Product Scanners

TESTERS: When it comes to makeup we all want to test it before we buy it. Whether you want to see or feel the product or if you want to just see the shade on your lips the amount of testers available are endless.

NYX GOTCHA COVERED CONCEALER

DRUGSTORE BLUSH

SHADOW & LIP BAR: These walls will just take your breath away with the options of lip products and single eye shadows.  The Eye Shadow Bar offers single pans to fill in either a 4 pan palette or a 9 pan palette. With these prices you can not go wrong!

Single Shadows: $4.00

4 Pan Palettes: $12.00

9 Pan Palettes: $28.00

NYX EYESHADOW

Drugstore Eye Shadow

TAKE HOME FOUNDATION SAMPLE: I think I was in such awe of all the beauty around me I totally forgot to do this!!! If you have been with me for a while you know I am not huge on Matte Foundation but for $7.50 I was curious and plus a girl can always just add in some liquid highlighter. This feature is something we only see at High End makeup stores and counters so in my opinion this is a game changer for affordable beauty.

See the foundation HERE at Ulta

Drugstore Foundation

PRODUCT SCANNERS: I absolutely loved this feature and had some much fun. If you follow me on Instagram, I did a full preview of this feature on my stories. You take a product, scan it and all the product details will show up. What the product does, how many shades are offered and customer reviews. You also get to see any social media pictures that have been tagged with that product.

Drugstore Makeup

I would highly recommend a visit to not only this store if you are in the Chicago area but if you have a free standing NYX Store near you!  With endless amounts of affordable products and in-store features you are sure not to leave empty handed, I know I didn’t!

What are some of your must have NYX Products? Have you been to a free standing NYX Store? Would love to hear your thoughts and experience below.

MUST HAVE DRUGSTORE PRODUCTS: The 10 Products You Need To Try Now!

It is no secret I love a fab find especially when its under $10 and from the drugstore. Out of this list only two are over $10 but trust me they are worth it! On Tuesdays on my Instagram I like to showcase products that are $10 or less because lets face it, there are some gems at the drugstore. When it comes to must have drugstore products, these 10 products are tried and true,  always in reach and in rotation. To see my other fab finds on Instagram use #10orlesstuesday to see my posts.

Drugstore Product List: (click product to shop)

  1. Milani Blushes: I love blush, like really really love blush. Milani Blushes are so affordable, come in multiple shades and have such pretty packaging. Who else is a sucker for classic pretty packaging? Shades I love and use most often are Rosa Romantica and Luminoso (see some Milani swatches HERE. They go on so smoothly and blend like a dream. Its like using a High End Blush.
  2. NYX Butter Glosses: If you are a gloss type of person and have not tried these you must! For under $5 and 34 shades to choose from you are guaranteed to find a shade or two, three or five lol They are very comfortable on the lips, not sticky and provide a nice amount of color. You can wear these glosses alone or over your favorite lipstick for an added pop of shine!
  3. L’Oreal Pro Glow Foundation: Want affordable foundation that will give you a beautiful dewy glow with medium coverage that looks like your skin? This is the one to try.  It is so versatile and has become a Holy Grail product.  I mix it with my moisturizer, use it alone or I will mix it with my matte foundations for a boost of hydration and glow. My skin is combination but I still prefer to be hydrated and will blot my T Zone when needed.  If you have dry skin you will love this foundation!
  4. Wet N Wild Color Icon Blush: For $2.99 this blush goes on like High End but will give you more money in your pocket for more makeup! Hehe!!! Two nude/peach shades that have stolen my heart are Apricot In The Middle & Rose Champagne
  5. Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer: This bronzer will warm up your face and sculpt it while smelling like you are in the tropics! The name is true to its formula because its extremely buttery, blends like a dream and I can say this is a pretty darn close dupe for NARS Laguna Bronzer.
  6. Maybelline Baby Skin Primer: Not only does this make my pores look smaller, my makeup lasts all day. I love this one specifically because its clear. Other pore filling primers are a nude color and I have found the others I have tried (Smashbox, Benefit and Dr. Brandt)  have clumped up on my skin. So this one is a winner for me and gets the job done!
  7. Milani Lipsticks: If you have been following me for a while you know MAC Lipsticks are my absolute favorite but when it comes to drugstore lipsticks Milani are the best. They are so close to MAC and I love finding MAC dupes with Milani Lipsticks. There are so many shades and different finishes to choose from. Pigmented, comfortable on the lips and no funky smells and or tastes. One thing I can not handle is a lipstick with a ton of fragrance in it. Who else is like that?
  8. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation – Smooth & Dewy: Another fabulous drugstore foundation that will leave you looking natural and dewy. I love natural makeup and have found so far these two to give me that at the drugstore. The coverage is medium and will last all day on your face.
  9. NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer:  This concealer is $5.99, full coverage, comes in 20 shades, infused with coconut oil so it gives the most beautiful dewy finish and is a dupe for Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. The ingredients are almost identical, trust me you can not go wrong with this one. It does not crease on me and I usually don’t need to set it (but I know that is a preference – see my Top Dewy Concealers HERE)
  10. L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara: One of L’Oreal’s newest products has me jumping for joy! If you are already a L’Oreal Mascara fan this most certainly is one you need to try. If you are new to L’Oreal mascara you wont be disappointed. The amount of length and volume that is achieved will have you putting all your other mascaras to the side. PS if you want to try a mascara primer I highly recommend the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer.

NEW L’Oreal Pro Glow Collection: How Do You Glow?

First I would like to say I am so sorry for being MIA on my blog the last few weeks. I was out sick but I am doing good now and Thank You all for your patience. Being active on Social Media is so much fun but I truly love sitting down and writing because I feel like I am talking to all my friends about our love for makeup. So Thank You for being here!! Ok I wont make this a sappy post lol Lets move on to the makeup! I am a newbie to the L’Oreal Pro Glow Foundation and I am obsessed! It was literally a week after having it that I heard the Pro Glow family was expanding to a concealer and a powder. I just knew I had to try them both. PS not sure what took me so long to try this foundation.

Product Details: Now available at Ulta Beauty

Pro Glow Concealer:

$9.99 with 8 shades available. I am shade Creamy Natural. I prefer my concealer not to be super lighter than my skin because I enjoy a more natural makeup look.

Per Ulta’s Site: Discover L’Oreal’s pro inspired Infallible Pro Glow Concealer that provides glowing coverage for up to 16 hours. Sculpt and highlight features while you correct and conceal imperfections. The lightweight, ultra-blendable formula allows you to customize your glow with luminous, buildable coverage.

Pro Glow Powder: 

$12.99 with 8 shades. I prefer the shade Creamy Natural but could probably use the others I purchased as well but it depends how you are going to use the powder

Per Ulta’s Site: Discover a pro-inspired powder that provides a lasting, glowing finish with L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro Glow Powder. Skin is left feeling smooth, soft and even; never cakey, never shiny. Buff onto skin for a subtle glow or build highlight onto key features.

Pro Glow Foundation: 

$12.99 with12 shades available. I am shade 205 Natural Beige which I thought may be a tad too dark however 204 seemed too pink so I went with 205 especially since its summer.

Per Ulta’s Site: L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation is a pro foundation with an all day glow!

L'Oreal Pro Glow
L’Oreal Pro Glow Collection

Lets talk Concealer first since I cant get over this concealer kick that I am on. I think its just a forever addiction I will have lol.  At my first application I noticed a paint smell. This is not super uncommon with some products but it went away quickly and was not in all the shades I purchased. The coverage is buildable but if you are looking for full coverage this may not be for you. I prefer this type of concealer so I am enjoying it however I didn’t notice a real glow or very dewy effect and for some reason I was expecting it to be realllllly dewy.  It was just the right amount of dew as most of you know if you follow me on Instagram I do not like a matte concealer. The applicator is a doe foot application which makes it very easy to apply and I love that. If you are into lighter weight makeup that is dewy you most certainly need to check this concealer out. I think its perfect for summer or those no makeup, makeup days (which is usually my go to)

L'Oreal Pro Glow

L'Oreal Pro Glow
Shades Top to Bottom: 02 Creamy Natural, 03 Nude Beige, 03 Natural Beige

The powder can be used three different ways: Set your foundation with the non shimmer side of powder, Highlight your face with the shimmer side of powder or for an all over glow.  As you can see below its split into two different products per say. The top part has a shimmer in it and the bottom does not.  I know I wanted the all over glow so I went in by swirling my powder brush into it and applied it directly to a fresh moisturized face. It gives a bit of coverage and does give you a subtle all over glow but I do use a ton of skin care that makes my skin glow already. When I need those quicker makeup days I reach for my MAC Studio Fix Plus Powder Foundation and I wanted to see how this would compare and it just did not provide the coverage I would like.  However I think this is a fabulous affordable setting powder by using both sides to set your foundation for a subtle all over glow or even to set your under eyes it works.

L'Oreal Pro Glow

L’Oreal Pro Glow Powder
Shades L to R: Creamy Natural, Nude Beige, Natural Beige

When it comes to the Pro Glow Foundation it gives me the most natural looking base with a beautiful glow that does not make me look too shiny. I went to breakfast with some family while I was trying it out and they said my makeup looked fresh and like it was my own skin. That is exactly what I look for in a foundation so I can not recommend it enough!!!!

Who else is in love with the Pro Glow Foundation and who has tried these new editions to the collection? I would love to hear your thoughts and what products you are using these days to get your glow on!!!

NEW Milani Baked Blush Shades: Get ready to add these to your collection!

Milani just added two new blushes to their very popular baked blush collection.  Its no secret that blush is my thing, my weakness, my ultimate beauty obsession so when I found out two more shades were added ANDDDD  they were on Target’s website I jumped on them fast! The Milani Baked Blush collection is priced under $8 bucks and go on the cheeks with just enough pigment. Shades in the collection range from nudes, berry and pinks to the iconic peach shade luminoso.

Milani Baked Blush
Milani Baked Blush in shades: Bella Bellini & Rosa Romantica

I mean look at how gorgeous these blushes are!!! Bella Bellini is pink with a golden shimmer in it. It reminds me ALOT of Nars Orgasm (stay tuned I am working on Dupe List III … See my other dupe lists here & here). Rosa Romantica is a perfect nude peachy pink with a light golden shimmer, basically for me it is blush perfection! The Milani site states the shade is light pink but for me it swatches more peach/nude. I use to be all about the pink blushes but now I just want everything to be nude, peach or bronze lol! I cant be the only one who feels this way hehehe!!!

Shades Top to Bottom:

  • Bella Bellini
  • Rosa Romantica

Milani Baked Blush

I wanted to round up the rest of my Milani Baked Blush collection and give you swatch comparisons and just some more gorgeous blushes to swoon over!

NEW Skin Kiss: Makeup Revolution Highlighter

Its $10 Or Less Tuesday and I am so exited to talk about the New Skin Kiss Makeup Revolution Highlighter collection that is sold exclusively at Ulta Beauty.  $10 or less Tuesday is such a fun day for me as a beauty blogger. I truly love finding affordable makeup. Even if you have a bigger budget who doesn’t love a good find for less money?!!? I know I do! I grew up on drugstore makeup and even though I do love my higher end products sometimes drugstore products are just as good if not better! I love a good highlight especially when its a natural look, something I can wear daily or even layer for a bigger pop for a night out!

These highlighters are are described on the Ulta Website: “Kiss skin with a healthy-looking glow! Makeup Revolution’s Skin Kiss is a crushed pigment highlighter that brightens and adds a natural touch of illumination throughout the year”

Product Details:

  •  $9.00
  •  Three shades available (Peach Kiss – Ice Kiss – Golden Kiss)
  •  Pan Size is very big! So not only are these affordable but you are getting a lot of product

Makeup Revolution Highlighter Review

Makeup Revolution Highlighter - Skin Kiss - Peach Kiss

As I swatched them they felt pretty good. I am not a fan instantly when a highlighter feels hard or gritty. Does that make sense? Anyone else feel this way? Honestly I think I am spoiled with BECCA Highlighters because those are like butter and if we are going to talk about favorite of all time they are BECCA for me.  These are indeed soft. At first I was not sure if they seemed too glittery or chalky but as I swatched more and tried them on, they are not. It is indeed a nice glow that can be subtle for everyday or built up for a night out. These are finger swatches and I did not need to press hard for pigment.

Makeup Revolution Highlighter

Swatches from Top to Bottom: (Click shade for easy shopping!)

Makeup Revolution products are Buy 2 get 1 free at Ulta Beauty as of today 2/8/2017  SCORE!!!! Who’s going to pick these up? What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.

DUPE LIST: BPAMC Drugstore Dupes

For those of you that are new to Beauty Products Are My Cardio when I started my Instagram I ran a series called Splurge VS Steal. Who doesn’t love a good beauty steal right??!!?? Call it splurge vs steal, drugstore dupes or just good ole dupes, being able to save money on a product that works just as well (sometimes better) than an expensive one is a win in my book.

So I thought it would be fun to move this series over to my blog. Its now called DUPE List. I will dedicate blog posts that will consist of my finds in a list form so I can give you multiple dupes at once! (YAY!!!!!)  Below you will see my dupes from the last 9 months on Instagram along with some new ones. I hope you are just as excited about this new blog series as I am! I already have the 2nd one in the works so stay tuned! Lets get started!!!!

DUPE LIST:

Makeup Dupes - Becca Dupe - Becca Foundation Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Becca Aqua Luminous Foundation: $44

Loreal Cushion Foundation: $14.99

I found the coverage, luminous finish and longevity to be almost identical.

Makeup Dupes - Hoola Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Makeup Dupes - Hoola Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Benefit Hoola: $29.00

NYC Sunny Bronzer: $3.62

Hoola is a holy grail bronzer of mine so for me its worth the splurge however if you are on a budget and looking for a great matte bronzer you can not go wrong with Sunny Bronzer. The colors are a bit different so please keep that in mind.

Drugstore Dupes - MAC Blankety Dupe - Makeup Dupes

MAC Blankety $17.00

Loreal Fairest Nude: $5.99

Blankety is a more pink toned brown nude where I found fairest nude to come off a bit more brown. Loreal lipsticks are fabulous (except the smell/taste) so if you are looking for an everyday nude on a budget this is the shade to look into. This has also been said to be a dupe for MAC’s HoneyLove but I found it to be a bit closer to Blankety

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Revolution Shimmer Brick - Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick

Bobbi Brown: $46.00

Makeup Revolution: $7.00

Bobbi Brown is noticeably darker in color but the concept of a fun shimmer brick highlight to use in multiple ways is the same. Bobbi Brown offers a color range of the shimmer bricks and I have a few and love them however you can not go wrong at all with Makeup Revolution!

Makeup Dupes - Nars Multiple - Nars Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Nars Multiple Stick: $39.00

Wet N Wild all in one highlight stick: $3.99

I can not tell you how excited I was to discover this dupe. With the shades being almost identical to the formula being pretty darn good for $3.99. They are not any where as creamy as Nars but they are good for $3.99

Makeup Dupes - NYX Gotcha Covered - Tarte Concealer Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

These two concealers are so identical they have the same ingredients except for 2!!!  The NYX Gotcha covered concealer is AMAZING. Its one of my Ride or Die products (see my full list here)

Makeup Dupes - Makeup Revolution - Tarte Hella Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Makeup Revolution – The One For All: $5.00

Tarte: Hella: $20.00

Formula is different as the Tarte is not sticky and is very comfortable on the lips but color match is almost identical!

Makeup Dupes - Nail Polish Dupes - Just Nothing Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

All I can say is the Christian Louboutin polish chipped before the Wet N Wild one.

Makeup Dupes - Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Dupe - Eyeshadow Primer - Drugstore Dupes

Urban Decay Primer: $20.00

Wet N Wild Primer: $4.69

Read my blog post  here with swatches

Drugstore Dupes - Rockateur Dupe - Japonesque Blush Shade 2

Wet N Wild new formula blushes are amazing! Drugstore price with highend results. All three of these blushes are fabulous however Wet N Wild stepped up the game. You need them in your collection!

Drugstore Dupes - Covergirl Lash Blast - They're Real Dupe

All I can say here is Lashblast is my Holy Grail mascara and if Benefit’s Bad Gal Lash and They’re Real had a baby it would be Lash Blast.

Drugstore Dupes - IT Cosmetics Dupe - Milani Dupes

It Cosmetics Brow Power Lift Pencil: $24.00

Milani Brow & Eye Highlights: $6.99

The Milani comes in three different shades but this was the closest to the IT Cosmetics one that only comes in one shade. I prefer the shades to the IT Cosmetics for my skin tone however if you can find a Milani Brow & Eye Highlight that fits your skin tone its a fabulous product!

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Dupes - MAC Lady Danger Dupe

MAC lipsticks are by far my favorite lipsticks however Milani’s matte lipsticks are up there for me. They are just as comfortable, long wearing and do not have a funky smell or taste (big deal breaker for me with lipstick) Matte Passion is honestly the best dupe I have discovered because its almost identical.

Drugstore Dupes - MAC fix plus dupe - Elf Makeup Spray

MAC Fix + Spray: $23/12

Elf Makeup Spray: $3

The Elf one has a smell that is hard for me to get past. It provides hydration well and works but because of the smell I do not use that often.

Drugstore Dupes - MAC Pretty Please Dupe - Makeup Dupes

MAC Pretty Please: $17

Revlon Sky Line Pink: $4.99

I am bias with Pretty Please it was the shade I wore on my wedding day lol and its the perfect pink for me but in all honesty if you are looking for a pretty pink lipstick that shimmers and dont want to break the bank the Revlon one is going work!

Makeup Dupes - Drugstore Dupes - Dr Brandt Pores No More Dupe

Dr Brandt: $45.00

Catrice: $7.99

Both keep you matte, refine your pores and keep oil at bay. Dr. Brandt does have a nude color to the primer where the Catrice Primer is white

 

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Dupes - Clinique Chubby Stick Dupe

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Dupes - Clinique Chubby Stick Dupe

Clinique Chubby Stick: $17.00

Revlon Jumbo Gloss Balm: $8.99

Some of the shades are not an exact match as you can see but the idea behind this glossy tinted balm are the same. So if you can find a shade you love that is less expensive you cant go wrong with the Revlon Balm!

I truly hope you enjoy this new series  DUPE LIST.  What is your favorite dupe find? What dupes would you like to see? Let me know in the comments below!
