Hi! I'm Elle from ElleSees, a beauty blog that features tips, tricks, and tutorials on hair, makeup, and DIY. Since Fall will be here before we know it, I thought I'd share some of my favorite beauty products for the season. The best part? Everything can be purchased at the drugstore, making a seasonal upgrade budget-friendly. Enjoy.
- Maybelline Color Show Polish in Dressed to Kill ($4): Burgundy is a classic Fall color, but this polish is a little darker, keeping with the still-popular oxblood trend.
- Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie ($7): Sometimes a red lip can be a little daunting, but this color is darker, giving that "just bitten" look. Plus, it looks great on everyone.
- Jordana Best Lash Extreme ($3): If you're looking for big lashes, give this mascara a try. The wallet-friendly price makes it a no-brainer!
- Wet n Wild Blush in Mellow Wine ($2, originally $3): I love a product that I can wear year-round, and this blush fits the bill. The color works especially well in Fall and Winter.
- Maybelline Eye Shadow Quad in Natural Smokes ($6): If you're looking for a great smoky eye palette, try this one. Each color tells you exactly where to place it on your lid for foolproof application. It works for day (try the shimmery taupe shade on the lid) or night.
Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week is nigh. And as we prepare our bags with cameras, phone chargers, energy-fueling snacks, and plenty of H2O, we'll also be stocking up on our favorite drugstore beauty buys. From classics to new favorites, "go backstage" with us and take a look at the under-$10 items we'll be stashing in our bags all week long.
Whether it's from too much time in the sun or hormonal fluctuations, dark spots can be a blight on a pristine complexion. Instead of splurging on high-end lightening prescriptions, you can remedy hyperpigmentation with these more affordable drugstore options. Under-eye circles, stretch marks, and splotches are on their way out thanks to these brighteners, which will cost you much less than a trip to the dermatologist.
Getting gorgeous not only requires the right product, but also the right tools. Brushes are a must have for everything from your hair to your makeup, and, yes, your body. Oftentimes brushes can cost more than the product you're actually applying, but you can find awesome tools at equally amazing prices. Just click through to see our top 10 picks all under $10.
If your shopping list includes nail polish remover and you're planning on hitting up your local CVS, bring along your ID. The reason? Acetone, an ingredient in some nail polish removers, is used in making the illegal drug methamphetamine. In an effort to put its manufacture to a halt, the drugstore chain is in the process of implementing a must-be-over-18 policy for those wishing to purchase acetone-containing products. According to CVS, "Our policy also limits the sale of these products in conjunction with other methamphetamine precursors and is based on various regulations requiring retailers to record sales of acetone."
From firsthand experience, I can attest this is true. After purchasing a travel-size nail polish remover bottle on a recent trip, my ID was scanned and a signature was required. Walter White, take note. What do you think of this new rule?
From making your second-day hair last longer to adding texture and volume to your strands, dry shampoo should be in everyone's beauty stash. You don't have to spend big bucks to find a bottle, though. Check out our favorite sprays that are all $10 or less, and say "so long" to sweaty strands.
