How I Achieve Powerful Beauty
Seeing as how I’m cheap and all – I bill myself as a frugal living expert, so I have to live up to it – I feel at my most powerful and beautiful when I discover a new inexpensive beauty treatment.
For example, a few years ago I decided to give Physician’s Formula loose mineral powder foundation a try. At $8 and some change a container, it was $10 cheaper than what I was paying for liquid foundation, and dramatically cheaper than the other mineral powders on the market.
And it contains no talc. Which is apparently VERY IMPORTANT.
As it turns out, PF is the best foundation I have ever used. It covers like a dream, lasts all day, and doesn’t turn my face into an oil slick. Plus, I’m saving money. Money I can spend on other inexpensive beauty products…
Together Erin and I share a love of cheaper beauty products. I adore browsing my local drugstore shelves for the gem that will liven up my makeup case. It’s like a treasure hunt and I feel SO darn proud when I save money while indulging my beauty-addict side.
