It’s the holidaaaaaays! My favorite time of year and excuse for everything (drinking/eating excessively, going out on school nights, buying sequins, carrying mistletoe around in my purse in case I see a hot guy, what?). Walmart sent me on a mission to pick up some essentials to create a holiday look and I was happy to oblige (#AnyExcuseToShop). Check out the five items I snagged for $30.
I’m a big fan of Revlon’s super creamy Super Lustrous lipstick ($5) and I picked up a glorious shade called Wine With Everything (because duh). I also purchased Cover Girl’s Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm ($7), which gives you a touch of color with soft shine and it was great to re-apply throughout the night and keep my lip look on point without reapplying full lipstick.
You may know by now I’m a huge fan of Revlon’s Colorstay Gel Envy polish ($5 for the shades and the topcoat), so I’m down for any excuse to purchase more. I already had the Queen of Hearts (perfect holiday red), but this time around, I got the dark mauve Hold ‘Em (pictured above) and I’m loving it. It’s been over a week and I’m still chip-free.
Exfoliation is key for a glowing complexion. I have long loved Aveeno’s Skin Brightening Daily Scrub ($6)—you can feel the tiny scrubbers working their magic and it never irritates my sensitive skin. For the body, Nivea Smooth Sensation ($5) is my favorite lotion. It provides long-lasting moisture even in the winter months, but isn’t greasy or too thick (it’s the perfect consistency to add a bronzing product to). And a five-spot for a 16.9 ounce pump bottle = major score.
And because everything was so cheap, I can go spend more money on other stuff. Because hello, IT’S THE HOLIDAYS.
