Review: LiquidSunshineCo. Cheap and Fabulous skincare

I found LiquidSunshineCo while browsing Etsy. Of course, the prices were the first thing I noticed. $1 for the chappy lipbalm . The only problem I had was that the balm was flavored with mint. Mint toothpaste = Yes. Mint Lip Products= No thanks! I sent the owner a message and asked her if it would be possible to get the product in a different flavor. Not only did she say yes but she worked with me over a period of time to develop my custom flavor! How is that for customer service? I mentioned that I just started a blog and was going to give her a glowing customer service review. I had no intention on trying to get these products for free but she sent them to me free of charge anyway. 3 custom chappy lip balms, 1 Working Hands Lotion Bar, and 2 Awaken Me Lotion Bars. Wow was I impressed when I opened up my package. Even more impressed when I used the products. Everything was just lovely.

"Good car also chances the character" Huh?

Click the picture for a better view
Normally at the sight of a design like this I just giggle at the thought of someone actually wearing such a thing even ironically. The design is just tacky in the worst way and the saying makes no sense. "Good car also chances the character". I can't even begin what that meant in the original language. I wouldn't think twice about the pot leaf design. However, these pants are not adult pants. These are CHILDREN'S pants. Toddler pants to be exact. This isn't a joke either. I found these while "screen" shopping on a Korean shop online. I can't find the link now but if I do I will post it.

My Top 5 Makeup Products

E.L.F. Studio Blusher in Gotta Glow- $3
This is my HG highlighter. I can not express how much I love this product. It is a sheer white powder with gold and white shimmer. An absolute must have in my makeup arsenal.

E.L.F. Studio Mineral Face Primer- $6
This primer my favorite of all of the face primers I have tried. It makes my skin looks better even without any foundation on. My makeup goes on smoother and gives me a fairly flawless look.

Avon Smooth Minerals Loose Powder Foundation in Transparent Glow- $12
This is my HG setting powder. On hot humid days I opt for this instead of foundation. It gives my skin a natural glow and softens any imperfections.

Wet n' Wild Eyeshadows- Varies
What can I say except Wet n' Wild really is the brands that defines Cheap but Fabulous?

Here we go...Another beauty blog but why?

Well, mostly because there are few budget beauty blogs that see to be aimed at people as cheap as me. I don't like to pay more than $10 on any of my cosmetics. I really want to focus my attention almost completely on products under $15 and indie makeup companies. If I try something that blows me away and costs more I will let you know that it is worth the splurge. I am very excited about this! I hope to meet some new friends and maybe help a few people realize the wonders that can be found on a budget!
