Anna Lise from The Complexion Concierge is back again this week to give you the best drug store steals as well as cheaper alternatives to holy grail cosmetics. Is it just me or is this series amazing? I’ve loved working with Anna Lise so much that we’ve teamed up to give away a free skin care consultation. Enter to win at the end of this post!
I’ve learned so much, and my skin has never (ever) looked better. Enough about me though, check out these steals and dupes:
First off, let’s start with the skin care steals
Skin Care For Everyone:
Normal to Combination Skin: Trader Joe’s Nourish All-in-One Cleanser, $6/8.45 fl oz
Oily: Olay Foaming Face Wash For Sensitive Skin, $5/7 fl oz
Dry: Boots Expert Sensitive Gentle Cleansing Lotion, $5/6.7 fl oz
Aveeno Stress Relief Body Wash, $7/12 fl oz
Eucerin Daily Replenishing Moisturizing Lotion, $7/13.5 fl oz
Yes To Coconuts Protecting Hand & Cuticle Cream, $6/3 fl oz
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs (lotion), $12/4.4 fl oz (this is a summer time game-changer for me!)
Fun Drugstore Dupes For Almost All Skin Tones:
Instead of Benefit Dandelion $28/0.25 oz use L’Oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Blush in Baby Blossom (C1-2) $10.95/0.21 oz
A savings of over 54%! A wonderful light pink, very natural blush for even the fairest skins, or those the most scared of looking overdone!
Instead of Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine in #6 Pink in Devotion, $36 use Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters in Sorbet, $6.49
Maybe not for every day wear, this bright pink packs a punch with a sheer glossy texture. Perfect for summer beach parties or nights on the town, or even every day for the more adventurous makeup-lover! Sure the fancy packaging on the YSL outshines the Revlon by a mile, but if you’re not worried about how it looks coming out of your purse, this is a great steal!
This NARS product is a favorite of Kim Kardashian for its sheer, luminous highlighting, this is nearly identical. If you like the luminous glow of a highlighter, this is a no-brainer!
Hannah specifically asked about this cult-favorite, and there are a handful of good dupes on the market. But for staying power, pigmentation and accessibility, my choice is this Milani Blush!
Time for the giveaway! Anna Lise is kind enough to offer a FREE skin care consultation with one lucky reader. This is what she did for me, and I can’t recommend it enough. She has seriously changed my life. The consultation includes a 30 minute introductory consultation, personalized recommendations that she will email to you, then a 50 minute follow up skin care coaching session.
She is also offering 20% off all services for any reader who mentions my blog. Check out her services here. You won’t be disappointed!
