Think $100 doesn't go very far these days? Maybe not some places but you'll be happy to know that if you are working with a limited beauty budget, it will still buy you quite a lot at Walmart! I didn't think padding my own kit with that amount was much of a challenge but how about setting up my 13 year old niece whose makeup arsenal is comprised of lipbalm, sunscreen and beige eyeshadow with everything she needs for a summer as a camp counselor - can it be done...?
Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in Nude - $10.96 - for flawless summer skin that looks like you're wearing nothing!
Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me - $3.50 - for moisture and a hint of colour.
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Show Off Mascara in Black - $5.98 - because as far as I'm concerned mascara is a necessity!
Annabelle Eye Makeup Remover Pads - $3.96 - for when you need to take the mascara off, with ease! Almay Smart Shade Blush in Pink - $11.46 - for a healthy summer glow and I just thought the dots were cool.
CoverGirl Shadow Pot in Berry Red - $4.97 - seems like a scary red shadow but looks like a sheer berry wash on, also works as a blush or even to add to a clear gloss for when you need more colour!
Montagne Jeunesse Masque in Chocolate and Very Berry - $1.87 - for a skin pick-me-up after a hard day!
Hard Candy Nail Colour in Black Tie Optional and Cotton Candy Pink - $3.98 - less colour on the face means there should be a party on the nails!
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Clear - $5.97 - makes a great base and top coat for polish or use it on it's own to protect nails from splitting.
Revlon Crazy Shine - $4.96 - makes buffing fun and easy!
Goody Spin Pins - $5.97
Goody Bobby Pins - $5.57
Garnier Fructis Beach Hair - $5.86
and a Caboodles Mini Train Case in Sparkle Pink - $6.97 - you have to keep it somewhere so it might as well sparkle!
For a grand total with tax of $99.24!
Could I have easily spent another $100? Of course! But I do think for a little less then $100 I managed to kit her out with quality name brand products that will make her look and feel great all summer long!
Feel free to let me know if there are any products you think I have missed out on getting her - something that every 13 year old needs in her summer kit?
