A New Year

Welcome to 2011 everyone! Lets start off the year right, with some new ideas. I believe in introducing yourself, so here I am. My name is Markie Rustad, and I am your Beauty Cheapskate guide. I am a known fanatic of noticing, and preventing fashion mishaps with my friends, and a lover of make-up and general beauty supplies. But, How do you know what's good, and whats not? Things vary on opinion, and I figured, why not put my opinion out there because when you are online shopping, who are you going to ask? If I can help even one person save a few bucks by shopping for something elsewhere, it'll make me happy. Also, if you want an opinion on something specific, let me know and I will look into it, or test it myself. So let's get this started off right. Some of my current faves!

#1: Glittersniffer Cosmetics
These pigments are my new addiction. There has been some drama as of late around the company, but I still support them whole-heartedly and will reccommend them to anyone that asks. They are bright, last all day, and are full of glitter!! (which happens to be one of my favorite things.) Look in my links area for a link to their website. Once they are reopened for business feel free to order and give them a shot yourself.

 #2: Suave Professionals Almond and Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner      
This stuff is amazing, and cheap! I buy mine at the local Walmart for roughly $2.50 a bottle and it lasts me a month or 2.  It smells great, feels great on and in your hair, and really helps with correcting damaged hair. I had a terrible dye/perm job a few months ago, and started using this, it fixed my hair and prevented further damage. Love it so much.

#3: Ecotools Eye brush kit
I just bought this on a christmas day sale, and recieved it the other day. The brushes are soft, and sturdy. I've used them, washed them, and have yet to have any of the hairs fall out. On top of that, they are eco friendly, made out of bamboo, recycled aluminum, 100% cruelty free taklon bristles, and comes with a nifty cotten and hemp carrying case.Oh, and did I mention they were only $7.00!

Those are my top 3 favs for the time being. I will be trying to post everyday with a tip, trick, or shockingly good deal I've found.  If you have any requests for reviews, or suggestions, feel free to comment below and I will look into whatever you have!
