2015 Holiday Wishlist

The holidays are coming up quick! Sephora and Ulta are already releasing their holiday sets! This is just going to be my list of holiday exclusive items that I want to pick up for the year. I just really hope that Sephora isn't selling out of their exclusive sets as fast as everyone says they do (some people were telling me that most of the bigger sets don't even make it to November...). That aside, let's check out some products on my wishlist! As a side note, I'll be putting numbers next to the set names indicating which ones I like the most (the lower the number the more I like the product).

#1) Sephora Favorites - Give Me More Lip Set $59 ($197 value)
This set is incredible! I need to broaden my lip product range and this would be perfect! In this set you get three full sized lip products and 12 deluxe sized lip products (1.26 Oz. of product total). This looks so great because you get a pretty wide range of colors and brands to try out without having to pay $20+ to try each of these individually. Included are products from well known brands like YSL, Kat Von D, NARS, etc. The price is great considering the three full sized products value $60+ by themselves! A must have for the holidays, especially since I don't own any of these!

Too Faced Summer Sale | Haul & Review

Hello once again! What better way to kick off the weekend than to have a beauty haul? This week I'm reviewing Too Faced! Too Faced is a cruelty-free makeup company that tends to lean on the girly side of things (which I'm all about) and is known to have high-quality products. I've been eyeing their products for some time and today I've finally got my hands on some! All these products were purchased by me during their End of Summer Sale which had products up to 71% off! They had some really great deals on limited edition and permanent line items. The sale is over now but there might be one next year! Anyways, enough rambling and onto the review!

Here's all the products I received!

Beauty Websites You Need To Sign Up With | Part 1

Hey guys! Today I'm going to give you a list of beauty websites you absolutely need to check out and register with. This will probably be a 4-5 part series, so let's just get right into it!

Overview: Aveda is a skin and hair care company that strives to use natural ingredients in their products to help both the environment and our own personal health. They also offer makeup products.

Sign-up: If you sign up with your email you can get in on all kinds of deals. Aveda sends emails a few times a month with codes. Just for signing up I received a code for free shipping on a $30+ order and a travel-sized bottle of lotion. I also received a code on my birthday for free shipping and a free sample trio on any $25+ order.

Current deals: Right now Aveda is having free shipping plus a styling creme sample for $25+ orders now through September 21. They also are offering free shipping with any of purchase of their invati line.

My verdict: I haven't gotten to try this company out yet but I'd really like to! They sound like a wholesome company and they have tons of fantastic deals. I've heard a lot of good things about them from others too! I think their hair care products sound most interesting.

My New Blog!

Hello everyone and welcome to my brand new blog, Big Beauty on a Little Budget! For the past few weeks I've been thinking about making a blog because I just love to share stuff with people, particularly beauty-related things. And here we are!

You'll most likely be seeing thrift and beauty hauls, my own art, and probably some "My Favorites" type of posts. I'm an aspiring graphic designer and for hobbies I love doing makeup/special effects and taxidermy. My interests range anywhere from makeup to horror movies so you're bound to find something enjoyable!

I hope you'll stick around and see what I have to offer!
