The Best and Affordable Lip Liners | My Top 5 Favorites

Sometimes beauty does not have to break the bank. Lip liners are one type of beauty products I choose affordability over prestige brands. Of course some prestige brands will have better quality liners but in my experience, many drugstore liners have similar, great quality at a fraction of the price. So today I’ll be sharing 5 brands who make lip liners incredibly affordable without compromising quality!

The Best and Affordable Lip Liners | My Top 5 Favorites

Most lip liners I use are on the affordable side but that doesn’t mean I splurge on a few higher end ones. Let’s be real, if I could, I’d own lip liners from every brand out there. In case you’re curious, some higher end lip liners I enjoy are from Kat Von D, Mac, Urban Decay, and Bite Beauty. As much as I love them to bits, the ones I reach for the most are from the 5 brands I mention below. Better yet, they all cost less than $6 a piece!

Holiday Makeup Wishlist | Sephora VIB Sale + Ulta Beauty 2017

A few days ago, I published my first ever Anti-Haul where I listed a few products/brands I won’t be spending my money on. As I was scrolling through Sephora, Ulta, and numerous Instagram pages to remind myself which products I wasn’t going to bother with, I was left drooling over holiday makeup items I’m eager to get my hands on. Moreover, Sephora’s annual VIB Sale is right around the corner so now is the perfect time to share my wish list and get recommendations from all of you!

7 Affordable Makeup Brands | Product Hits and Misses

As a beauty enthusiast, I love trying makeup in all price ranges – luxury, high end, and drugstore. As much as I love me some luxurious and prestige beauty products, I am a huge fan of affordable makeup. Why spend $30 on a primer when you can find something that does a wonderful job for just a few bucks? Also, it’s great to be able to find affordable dupes of pricey items we’re unable to get our hands on or reason to purchase. Moreover, if you’re new to makeup or wanting to experiment with certain types of products and shades, it’s always great to test out affordable items before taking the splurge on high end products.

7 Affordable Beauty Brands To Haul + Hits and Misses

That being said, I wanted to share affordable beauty brands I absolutely love. Not only do these brands have great prices but the quality of many of their items are incredible for the cost, some even perform better than products that cost double, triple, even quadruple the price! Like any other brand, these do have products that didn’t work for me so I’ll be sharing a few misses along with the hits.

Anti-Haul: Beauty Brands and Products I Won’t Be Purchasing

My first ever anti-haul! The beauty industry is constantly growing and new products are being released left and right, it’s nearly impossible to catch up! That being said, I feel there are quite a few products that are hyped up so much when the products themselves don’t seem appealing, innovative, etc. Moreover, I know it’s “just makeup” but there are a few brands I refuse to support for various reasons..when you see the names, you’ll more than likely know why. If you don’t, you’re welcome to google it and see why – I’m just one of many who have the similar feelings!

Anti-Haul: Makeup I refuse to Purchase

Just to be clear, if I mention a single product that doesn’t mean I dislike the brand whatsoever. Every brand has hits and misses, I’m just sharing the products I feel aren’t worth purchasing for MY own needs.
