Best Budget Beauty Buys | The Beauty Look Book

I can’t believe another month has flown by! It has been a busy summer for us with the move and we’ve had lots of company visiting us from out of town to take advantage of the summer beach weather in Florida. Today I have an updated budget beauty post for you! There are several things I bought recently that I’ve promised an update on and I’ve teamed up with Walmart to share the latest with you. I have a round up of my best beauty buys and added to my top shelf.


Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss Solar Coral and Blissed Out | The Beauty Look Book

I’ve always been a gloss girl and the Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Glosses are my lastest discovery! I love that they have a smooth glossy shine and no scent. As much as I love a good budget lip buy, sometimes they’re too heavily fragranced with either a strong lipstick or plastic kind of scent. These have been going through a repackaging (same style tube, just slightly different exterior so the tube may look different. I bought a couple to try in Solar Coral 243 (bright peach cream) and Blissed Out 246 (shimmery peachy gold rose) and am obsessed! I need to try more colors. I’m wearing Solar Coral in this post.


L’Oreal Summer Belle

L'Oreal Summer Belle Bronzer 01

L’Oreal is one of my favorite budget beauty brands and the Summer Belle collection is exclusive to Walmart. It took me a while to track these down because they kept selling out but it was worth the extra effort and searching! The stand outs to me are the two cheek products. I think the bronzers are a must.

L'Oreal Bronzers, Bronze Please! Walmart Exclusive vs True Match Lumi Bronze It

The Bronze Please! La Terra Sun Powder is for Face and Body and has a soft almost creamy feel. They’re very natural and you can build it for more color. I can wear either 01 Portofino or 03 Amalfi. They are softly scented with a sweet summer like scent but it’s not overpowering. There’s a tiny bit of gold shimmer mixed throughout but it’s a sparse kind of shimmer so the bronzer is not overly frosted. It gives the skin an almost airbrushed bronze effect. I swatched it next to the True Match Lumi Bronzer in 02 Medium for reference. I find the True Match option a little more red based and a little more powdery.

L'Oreal Blush Please! Summer belle highlighter blushes

I also picked up both shades of the Blush Please! Shimmering Blush in 11 Blushin In Riviera (peach gold shimmer) and 12 Blushin In Saint-Tropez (shimmery brown rose pink). Both are on the high shimmer side and they give the skin a very luminous glow. For me they are more highlighter material but I think they’re really fun and beautiful on the skin. Pigment is incredible and intense but you can easily blend and buff out.

Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter

Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighters Molton Gold, Molton Peach and Molton Topaz

I discovered the Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in the Molton Gold formula in the spring and loved it so much I bought a few more. They’re amazing. If you want the best budget highlighter with a smooth buttery texture and extreme glow, the Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter is IT! I love the Peach and Topaz shade.


Real Techniques Brushes

Real Techniques Brushes

Last but not least are the Real Techniques Brushes. I bought the Everyday Essentials Makeup Brush Set and think the brushes are excellent quality! They’re super soft and sturdy. I also bought the fluffy Ultra Plush Powder Brush and it’s made the top of my list for powder or bronzer. My niece has asked me for some brush recommendations. I’ve given her a few over the past year but am going to order her a few of these sets. I also recently bought the Brush Cleanser Set which I’m still testing and will keep you posted as I try other similar types of silicone pads.


Budget Beauty Shelfie Favorites

That wraps up some of my favorite new budget buys and tries! In case you missed past posts, you can check out some of my go-to staples here and here. Do you have any recent budget beauty favorites or new tries? I still swear by the L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara and love that they now stock Bioderma which I always keep on hand. Let me know if you’ve tried anything new! If you have any good budget lip glosses you love that don’t have a heavy scent let me know what I should check out next 🙂
