Let’s talk affordable makeup- after all, we are budgetnistas. Tia and I love finding quality items at a really affordable price because we believe it doesn’t need to be a luxury brand to be good. We have partnered up with Measurable Difference for this blog post to show you some of the products they offer and a way to get some additional savings.
The story behind this brand is pretty amazing. Measurable Difference, founded by Helma Arminak, a former refugee from Beirut, Lebanon. Created about five years ago with a dream in mind. Helma aimed to offer great products for face and body but wanted to keep everything affordable. I would say that dream is being accomplished.
What I Picked Up
This small compact palette comes with a blush, bronzer, eyeshadows, and brow product. It is perfect for on the go and works well for creating a full face. If you have been a subscriber for awhile, you know that I work very early in the morning- 5 A.M. to be exact! I need easy to use, multifunctional products. The shadows work great to create a nice neutral look for every day. If you need to transition the look into a night time look, no problem! I would suggest using some of the eyebrow powder as a shadow to create a smokey eye. The blush is a beautiful mauve that works well with all skin tones. The only iffy product in this palette would be the bronzer- it is a bit dark. If you are lighter skin toned, I would steer clear or use a very light hand.
The blushes are beautiful and affordable at two bucks a pop. You could easily purchase all 4 colors. All very wearable colors, but two of the colors are better suited for spring/summer.
Liquid lipsticks have been all the rage for the past few years and these affordable options definitely do not disappoint. The formula is very comfortable on the lips and lasts a decent amount of time. The color is different depending on your skin tone and lighting, which I think is pretty cool. The color comes off on me as a brownish purple- great for the fall season.
What can I say, it’s a bath bomb. All bath bombs are pretty amazing. These smell great and have a great price point. I loved them so much that I have already bought a couple more.
I’ve found Measurable Difference at stores like Ross, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls- but they can also be found online Measurabledifference.com. You can get 25% off and free shipping using code 25JACK. No need to rush! The code is good until March, so pick up a little something each month.
