August 30th 2011 · Makeup Dupes(10)

I hate spending a lot of money on cosmetics and makeup, so I’m always on the lookout for makeup dupes. What’s a makeup dupe? It’s a cheaper identical (or very similar) version of a high end makeup product. So why splurge on an ultra expensive lipstick or eyeshadow if there’s a cheaper version waiting for you at the […]

April 20th 2011 · L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara(4)

I was going through my stash of makeup and came across L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara. It’s supposed to be the poor woman’s version of Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara, which gets mostly rave reviews (I haven’t tried it). They both feature the super cute round wand applicator that looks like a mini princess fairy wand – I’m sure that’s why I […]

February 23rd 2011 · Maybelline Lipstain(2)

Maybelline COLOR Sensational lipstain is a lip product I just picked up on a whim for $5 at Target. I bought the Bitten Berry shade, which has a bright pink, almost fuchsia cap, so I was expecting the color of the lipstain to be the same. Maybelline says the product provides a “sheer wash of color” and that it […]

February 15th 2011 · Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation(3)

Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation SPF 20 is my new favorite pressed powder. After my former favorite Neutrogena Healthy Skin Pressed Powder changed its formula, I used Maybelline Dream Matte Powder and Physicians Formula Healthy Wear Foundation, but of the three I prefer the Neutrogena Mineral Sheers because it looks the best on my skin. Before I […]

August 2nd 2010 · Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Powder Foundation(4)

Physicians Formula has a new Healthy Wear Powder Foundation that boasts an impressive SPF 50! Since I try to protect my face from the sun as much as possible, the idea of adding a high SPF powder over my regular sunscreen is great, especially in the summer. Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Powder Foundation I picked this […]

June 22nd 2010 · Discontinued Makeup And Beauty Products(19)

Since I started Savvy Skin a few years ago, almost every one of my favorite makeup, skin care, and beauty products has been discontinued or reformulated! I know that’s how the beauty industry works – it’s always coming out with something New or some supposed Breakthrough Miracle Product, but once you finally find your favorite product, it’s […]

June 10th 2010 · Maybelline Dream Matte Powder(6)

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder is an inexpensive drugstore pressed powder I recently bought because my favorite powder had changed its formula, and the Maybelline is even cheaper, and it’s supposedly non-comedogenic, meaning it should be okay for acne-prone skin. Price For the last few years I had been using Neutrogena Healthy Skin Pressed Powder, but the formula […]

I’m so excited because I have tons of Tarina jewelry, and I love her style, so I’m sure her makeup will be great as well. I see a splurge coming on… The product […]

February 27th 2010 · Hard Candy Makeup at Walmart(6)

Hard Candy makeup, the fun, colorful makeup that was super popular in the 90s (especially their nail polish and eyeshadow) is now being sold for affordable prices at Walmart. I used to only buy drugstore makeup, but Hard Candy was the first cosmetics line that made me really excited about makeup, and it’s what brought me into Sephora […]
