Between buying clothes, books and other school supplies, budgets are sparse. More often then not, there’s very little money allotted for makeup. However, there is a way to get all of your makeup products for for less than $30. I’m a huge fan of Rimmel Cosmetics — I’ve always found the colors to be rich and highly pigmented. Rimmel gives consumers a generous amount of product for a low price and lets face it: no one wants to pay $10 for a travel size or mini product just to save some cash.
Rimmel’s BB Cream comes in three colors: light, medium and medium/dark. Their BB Cream works as a primer and has light, natural-looking coverage that moisturizes and provides the ever-important SPF 25. A little goes a long way with this product, making it easy on your pocketbook; at around $6.99, it’s a fraction of the cost of other similar products.
Rimmel’s SCANDAL EYES shadow sticks can be used both as eyeshadow and eyeliner. I found it very easy to create thin lines with the shadow sticks. There are nine colors that range from classic white, to black, bronze and blues. These are priced around $4.49. The SCANDALEYES collection also features eyeliner singles in 10 different colors, for the same price.
My favorite is SCANDAL EYES Lyrica Stretch Mascara. The coverage is great and so is the curl. For around 6.99, it’s a steal!
Last but not least is the lipstick. The Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss collection is my favorite. They have just about every shade of pink you can need as well as a perfect red for everyone. Since the lipsticks cost around $5.45, buying more then one color won’t leave you eating ramen noodles from now until Christmas.
