How about Glitter & Chrome Eyeshadow Duo, Matte Velvet Lip color and Liner, and Sheer Body Luminizer and Powder? The best part, all these beauty launches are very friendly to your budget.

The Glitter & Chrome Eyeshadow Duo ($7.00), seen above in a stunning gold called Sunbeam Sheen, offers a brilliant, sparkling, liquid glitter finish and a magnificently metalized smooth chrome foil finish in one. In addition to Sunbeam Sheen, this truly portable eyeshadow duo comes in seven additional colors.

The Matte Velvet Mousse Lipcolor & Liner ($6.00), is a hydrating, matte liquid lip color with a matching lip liner. How wonderful to get two products for the price of one. It’s definitely more bang for your buck. We love the deep, rich oxblood hue that is Dahlia. You’ll love the colors options available, there are 18 shades to be exact.

The Feelin’ Mauvey Eyeshadow Palette ($8.00), boasts a stunning collection of 10 highly pigmented mauve shades, in both matte and shimmer finishes. We love this collection of colors; they compliment everyone. It’s a great combination of neutrals, pinks, and pale purples.

Need to combat shine and hide your imperfections? The Sheer Envy Blur Face Primer ($8.00) is a revolutionary liquid-to-powder formula that blurs away imperfections. Your fine lines will be minimized and your pores will appear less apparent.

The perfect base for all of your shadow palettes, the Eye Shadow Primer ($5.00) increases the vibrancy and lasting power of all your eyeshadows.

Other new launches from your favorite 90’s beauty brand include the All Over Body Luminizer ($9.00); a head-to-toe, transfer-resistant, high-shine body illuminator that drenches your glowing skin with emollients and a fresh coconut scent. The Blurring & Pore Refining Loose Powder ($6.00), a weightless, universally hued powder that helps to refine pores, fine lines, marks, and redness.
