Chloe loves makeup and loves to try new brands, and loves to wander the aisles in beauty, department, and drugstores. But last minute purchases don't always turn out to be as great as she hopes. So we decided to create a new column just for her: $10 Teen Beauty Tips. Every few weeks she'll go shopping for makeup or beauty items that catch her eye, from an ad or from shopping the aisles. But since that's too easy of a task, we wanted to make Chloe's Beauty Challenge a "real" challenge: she has a tight budget for her Teen Beauty Tips: only $10. And, voil? ! Chloe's Beauty Challenge was born. ? She found out it's not that easy to buy things on a whim while on a budget, but she's having a lot of fun and learning tons of great teen beauty tips, which she'll share with you. Here goes! Sally Hansen is a trusted brand, so I decided to pick up the Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat polish, which is a fast dry top coat. If this polish was a person, it would be my BFF, because it is all around great, and it keeps its promises! All you have to do paint a color onto your nails, then wait thirty seconds and paint this top-coat onto your nails. Then wait another thirty seconds, and BAM! your nails are completely dry! This top coat is a great deal because after you use Hard As Nails, it looks like you’ve stepped out of the nail salon. It truly made my nails dry instantly... and helped stopped the chips. An at-home salon manicure in a bottle! This product receives 5 out of 5 Stars! $5.48
While browsing through the drug store, I saw this Sally Hansen Vita-B chapstick, and needed to try it! I hadn’t seen any ads or heard anything about it so I decided to try it myself. Personally I’m not a fan of artificial smells, so I don’t like this product as much as I would if it didn’t have a smell. The consistency of this chapstick is great, and it’s not grainy or gritty at all! I give this chapstick 3 out of 5 stars. $3.49
Well, my $10 didn't go much farther than 2 items this week... but I feel like I got a great bargain in the top coat and an ok bargain in the Lip Moisturizer, so it was a good trip. ? Let me know if there are any products you'd like to me to try! ? Until next time, Chloe.
