We all have our Holy Grail beauty products, ones we'll buy until the day we die, no matter how expensive they get. Everything else, however, is up for grabs - after all, experimenting is part of the fun of being a girl! (Or guy, we're not judging.) And, yet, who has the money to play around with expensive products willy-nilly in this economy? We sure don't. That's why we enlisted our price savvy amigas over at The Bargainist to help us out on a new feature we're calling Bargain Betty: The best new (and underappreciated standby) budget beauty finds, straight from our medicine cabinets to yours.
We've learned that powder touch-ups during the day are just... NOT a good idea. Why? No matter what kind of primer, foundation, powder, and setting spray used, applying makeup on top of makeup tends to just look cakey and streaky. To sop up shine, we rely on Zon Cosmedix 24/7 Oil Control Blotting Tissues ($5). For the price of a fancy latte, we get 65 oil blotting tissues with a special non-comedogenic powder that smooth out imperfections, leaving a soft, airbrushed finish. Available in unscented, amber, and rose powder versions.
