Save Makeup Save Money: Tips for Making Your Beauty Products Last

I am constantly talking to my girlfriends about what an investment beauty products are. If you’re a product junkie like me, your beauty budget can closely rival what you spend on new clothes. So whether it’s my wardrobe or makeup supply, I really want to make sure that I protect my investment.


Here are a few of my favorite ways to make my makeup last:


1. Build a Better Makeup Bag

At times, I look through my stash and find no fewer than a dozen variations of the exact same lip shade. None of these products get used consistently and they mostly end up expiring before I can even scratch the surface. I’ve learned that by better editing my purchase decisions, I can make sure that I have a variety of products that I use more frequently – and I’m more likely to use them to the very last drop.

2.Clean your Brushes

Not only are makeup brushes expensive, but they also touch all of your makeup. By keeping them clean, not only are you extending their life, but also the life of your products. Keeping powders and blushes free and clear of oils and bacteria that tend to break them down will help them live a longer life.


3. Keep it Pretty

You will never find my hard earned makeup knocking around in a vanity drawer or at the bottom of my purse. Oh, the horror! I’m careful to keep my beauty treasures tucked inside of pouches when I’m on the go or on a tray sitting on my vanity at home. This way, there’s far less chance that they will crack or explode, wasting precious product.

4. Scrape the Bottom

I recently discovered these little spatulas that you can use to actually scrape the bottom of your makeup bottles to get to the very end of them. I’ve also been known to use them after cutting open tubes of concealer and lip glossto collect one final application. Brilliant!


5. Portion Control

It may go without saying, but using only what you need can really make your makeup last. I found that I was always left with unneeded foundation or extra moisturizer after applying, so I downsized my dose and I’m wasting less. Making other small changes like not spraying my fragrance into the air and walking through it has also helped!


These tricks have definitely helped me to stretch my beauty dollar, but I’m dying to know: how do you make your makeup last?

June Vellvette Box♥

Hello loves,

The Vellvette box is an Indian version of the “Glambox”, wherein they send 3 beauty, skin care or hair care products each month. I got the June 2013 Vellvette box last month, here’s what i received:


This month’s theme was “Travel”, so the products came in this pretty, hot pink travel makeup pouch, as opposed to the boring black box.  This pouch is pretty sturdy and can be used as a travel makeup case.

They also sent me a personalized note with a list of products.


And here are all the products:

  • LA Splash glitter eye liner – Kaluha  ( Full Size )
  • Sisley Tropical Resins Complex (2 Samples)
  • Clinique Even Better Foundation, Neutral 05 ( 4 Samples)

LA Splash glitter eye liner – Kaluha 

This is full size bottle of glitter eyeliner (worth Rs. 795/-). Its a pretty gold bronzy glitter eyeliner. I look forward to using in a fun makeup look, possibly for an Indian wedding.


Sisley Tropical Resin Complex

I received two samples for these. This is a serum for oily-combination skin types. I am still to give it a try, although I am disappointed with this product as these are just samples that I can get from the Sisley counter for free anyway.


Clinique Even Better Foundation

This is again a disappointing product as they are samples. I can get these easily at the Clinique counter (Clinique is generally very generous with samples). I haven’t tried this product yet, but I have read good reviews about it.


Now, I wonder if I should go for the July Vellvette box? Let’s see if they come up with a preview. Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?
