beauty favorites: chubby stick balm stains

Balm Stains
I've been loving all balm stains this month. They're pretty moisturizing and they make applying lip color super easy. I've discovered the Wet 'n' Wild megaslicks balm stains this month - I'm a fan because they're both cheap and scentless. However, I still reach for my Revlon balm stains on a regular basis too.

I was so excited to finally find the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Collection. It was tempting to buy everything when I first saw the untouched display but I limited myself to a few things. My favorites are the Maybelline 24 HR Color Tattoo in Nude Compliment and Maybelline Master Hi-Light in Natural. The color tattoo makes a great base for all of the shades in the Naked 3 palette. My eyeshadow doesn't budge! I've also been enjoying the Master Hi-Light - it's very similar to MAC Soft & Gentle MSF. It would make a great, cheaper highlight powder for anyone on the paler side.

Wet 'n' Wild Fergie Take on the Day Eyeshadow Primer
My NARS primer finally dried out and I wanted to try something new but not pay a ton. This had great reviews and for under $5, I decided to try it out. Surprisingly, this works just as good as the NARS primer! It's scentless, colorless, and stays put all day. It looks like I might not have to buy a high-end primer again.
