Top Drugstore Dupes




So I used to be a MAC snob during college and up until recently when I discovered they tested on animals, I started looking for alternatives that were cruelty-free and easier on the budget but I wanted great quality and prices. I still own sooooo many eyeshadows and use them occasionally but I make a point not to purchase from them anymore... and we all love a good bargain so I have made a list of all my favorite dupes. Most of these are from NYX and Wet n Wild. Those two brands are my favorite from the drugstore. I've included some nudes, mauves, reds, and berry shades for a variety.


Please remember most of the time I am usually wearing a liner from NYX  but I will save that for another post. I've listed my favorite liner in this post mostly because this one can be worn alone if you like. NYX has amazing products if you haven't tried them you should definitely head to your closest drugstore and check them out. 

Ulta will do random sales like buy one get one and you can use your points and a coupon from them all at the same time so keep an eye out for them. 

This post is in no way sponsored and all opinions are my own.

2017 Holiday Gift Guide:For Her


I'm so excited to share my gift guide with you ladies.. and gents looking for those gift ideas. I don't know about you guys but I think it's so much easier shopping for ladies as there are so many ideas out there and hello Pinterest. Guys are a little more difficult, my man is anyway. I'll have that gift guide coming next. For now, let's get to all the fun...  
  
I'm a pink lover so naturally, most of these items will have blush, pink, or rose gold tones. You can always change the colors if you're digging another color.  
  
If you follow me on social media then you know I have been loving my grey Hunter boots  but I've linked some below that are on sale. They come in different colors of course so pick your fave 
  
1. Hunter Rain Boots
 Originally $155- on sale for $89.99  
These bad boys don't go on sale too often so if you're looking now is the best time.  
  
2. The rose gold Lumi Phone case  
Originally $59.95, on sale now for $49.95 
  
3. Pink/Grey Blanket Scarf -$55 
I'm linking a similar one for a little cheaper... but those blanket scarves are worth every penny.  
The one below is a little easier on the budget at $10 bucks.  
  
The famous Kylie Lip kit has been sold out lately but I found another similar product that's easier on the wallet. I've heard amazing things as well. I plan on trying this out asap if I don't get it from Santa. ;)  
4. Maybelline Gigi Hadid East Coast Glam Lipstick and Lip Liner Kit- $16.99 
  
5. Clarisonic Mia Fit Holiday Set 
This set is normally $271 and is now on sale for $219. The mini Clarisonic alone is priced at $234. This is honestly a killer deal. I live by my Mia 2 Clarisonic but when I travel I always wish I had this thing. Those brush heads are around $20-$30 a piece so you're really getting a deal on this one. This is a game changer for me with my skin. I have some texture issues and this is the only way for me to really handle it. The Clarisonic is amazing for deep cleaning and anti-aging. We all know exfoliating is the secret to preserving. 
  
6. Chanel COCO MADEMOISELLE Eau de Parfum 
$75–130 
This is an item I would never purchase myself but every time I smell it I just obsess over. It's such a classic smell you can wear winter or summer. You can't go wrong with this gift. It's not usually on sale but it's worth every penny in my opinion. I don't think too many women will complain.  
  
7. LC Lauren Conrad Bunny Ring Holder Trinket Tray 
$24 
We all need that ring dish on our night stand and I thought this piece was just darling and a classic color.  
  
8.Friends - Layla Leather And Rose Gold-Tone Headphones in Copper 
I think these headphones are a deal at $124 compared to the competitor, they are normally $177. 
  
9. T3 Tourmaline-$230 
T3 Twirl 360 Motion-Sensing Auto-Rotating Curling Iron 
If you're a beauty junkie you have likely seen this item floating around. I've watched several reviews and have friends that own this one. It's well worth the money and just look at the colors. Yes, please.  

If you want something similar that works but a little cheaper I found this Revlon curling iron with the same look for $27.99. 
Revlon Rose Gold Curling Iron 
  
10. LC Lauren Conrad Sweater Knit Pom Pom Ballet Slippers with Sleep Mask 
Normally $32 now on sale for $17.99 
It's not Christmas in my world without getting jammies or slippers every year. I've been really impressed with Lauren Conrad lately. She has a very feminine chic line that's very affordable. This set comes in different colors.  
  
So there you have it, there are many options for that special lady in your life or even yourself. I'm hoping Santa brings me a few of the items too. Let me know if you're shopping around for anything else or have any creative ideas. 
All opinions are my own as always.  

You can find all the items below if you want to purchase anything on the list. Happy Shopping everyone!
