Back To School | $20 Makeup Challenge

Hi beauties!! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, today I am doing a collab with my good friend, Amiee, from ambeautylife on YouTube. 

She asked me to do a collab with her and I was more than happy to do so. She came up with the idea of doing a back to school makeup look, but…with only $20 to spend! 

It worked out perfectly, since I was planning on doing a $20 makeup challenge anyway since my dear friend Chelsea, from Tiger Love Beauty challenged me awhile back, check out her post here

I hope you guys check out mine and Amiee’s videos!

Products Used

  • Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation – $4.97
    • The consistency of this foundation is quite thick and mousse-like. The coverage is medium to full, but it can cake up a bit. It settled into my laugh-lines, but it did wear decently with my oily skin.
  • Rimmel Match Perfection 2-in-1 Concealer & Highlighter -$4.97 (50% off) – $2.48
    • I did not like the applicator too much, a lot of product comes out at once, but the consistency and coverage of this concealer is nice. This would be perfect for someone who doesn’t have super dark undereye circles.
  • Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Trio in Sweet as Candy – $2.93
    • These shadows are nicely pigmented and blend nicely. They are a bit powdery, but nothing too bad.
  • Wet N Wild Blush in Berry Shimmer – $2.93 (50% off) – $1.46
    • I love these blushes, they are super pigmented and blend really nicely. 
  • NYC Brow/Eyeliner Pencil in Taupe – $0.98 (50% off) – $0.49
    • This was a bit hard to work with, especially as an eyeliner. It tugged on my eyelids too much, and the color payoff just wasn’t there. As far as my brows, it did a good job, but it’s still not something that I would repurchase. 
  • NYC Expert Last Lipstick in Berry Me – $1.96 
    • I was really impressed by this lipstick, it’s creamy, smooth and pigmented! I will definitely be picking up a few more shades!
  • ELF Eyelid Primer – $1.00
    • This is a great eye primer for someone who doesn’t have oily lids…it holds up nicely and doesn’t crease. 
  • Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara – $2.99
    • For the price, this mascara works really nicely. In the video, I only apply a couple coats, but off camera I probably would have loaded up on mascara. I’m really enjoying it. 

GRAND TOTAL – $18.28 

(I totally forgot to snap some pictures…sorry!)

So what do you guys think!?

I probably could have gotten more items, had I looked for coupons and such…but since this is a back to school look, I wanted to keep the look easy, minimal and quick!
