I’ve just started on this colour correcting fad and I’m obsessed. What used to be a pr0-tip from the makeup artists has recently become so accessible to everyone and their mother, from every brand out there! Heck, this is my second colour correcting post this month! But I just had to share my love of the new NYX Colour Correcting Concealer.
My favourite part of colour correcting palettes are the fact that you have all your colour correcting needs together as one product, whereas many brands have introduced this new fad by retailing their colour correcting products as individual products. Have red spots, dark circles and dullness? Well then shell out about $90 seeing as most of these products are selling for $30 each! Finding a high quality product for a low price is the reason I love NYX.
This beautiful palette brings together all the colour correcting needs in one palette. Yellow for dullness, green for redness, purple for sallowness, red for brightening dark circles, orange for dark spots, and darker brown, which truthfully I’ve been using as a cream contour. It’s everything I’d ever need together in one palette which I purchased for only $17 at Shoppers Drug Mart!
I’m a big fan of the high end brands and a good ‘ol Sephora haul. But the amazing quality of brands like NYX always remind me that drug store can be just as good, and in some cases better. I’ve received many compliments over the past week that I look healthy and refreshed….NOPE it’s just a bit of my colour correcting magic with NYX!
What is your favourite colour correcting brand?
Yesterday you saw the pricey stuff, so today I’ll share with you the best gifts with the best value for those shopping on a budget this Christmas! I love receiving gifts like this just as much as the luxe gifts, and they’re so much friendlier on your wallet during the holiday season!
The key to drugstore and budget shopping is knowing which brands have great holiday collections and gift sets, and where to get them! Whether it be Shopper’s Drug Mart, Rexall, Walmart, or online the realm of budget beauty gifts is endless!
Some of my favourite gift sets for the holiday season are brush sets. Being a true lover of Real Techniques brushes I think these make amazing gifts! Real Techniques can be found at Rexall locations in Canada, and for the holiday season keep your eye out for some limited edition sets such as the Deluxe Set for $30 or the well loved and always available Core Collection and Starter Set for $18 each. If you can’t find these set’s at your local Rexall then try online as well!
One brand that’s really killing it lately is Nyx. I’ve loved Nyx for a few years now but it’s relatively new to Canada. For this holiday season check out the new Nyx Butt Naked Eye and Cheek Palettes and gift sets available at Shopper’s Drug Mart for only $27. Or you can visit one of Nyx’s new flagship stores in Canada at either Queen St. West in Toronto or at Square One Mall! Powders, blushers, or the coveted lip creams galore!
For those nail polish addicts keep an eye out for Essie gift sets as well. I’ve seen quite a few different sets at various drug store locations, all at a reasonably low price. It generally works out to getting one of the polishes for free! And if you don’t see any sets that you like, then why not create your own? Places like Sally’s Beauty Supply and Trade Secret’s always have deals on polishes from last season!
And last but not least, take a look at the new products in the makeup aisle! There are some amazing new lippys and mascaras from both Maybelline and L’Oreal as well as so much more! Chuck a few of these in your basket and you’ll be the favourite gifter this holiday season! Beauty gifts don’t have to be expensive!
