Welcome to Broke Ass Beauty

My name is Amanda and I am here to help the chicas of the world avoid all the money-wasting mistakes I made while purchasing cosmetics and beauty products. I'll be honest--I've blown quite a bit of green on some pretty worthless crap.

Looking good makes you feel good. It can also be an important part of your professional image. It shouldn't be a chore or a huge financial investment. My ass is broke. Money should be going to pay off those student loans, not evening out my unfortunate skin tone.

We are going to try and keep it real here. Most of the stuff I'll be reviewing can be found at your local drugstore, or easily obtained online. I'm also hoping to enlist my friend so we can get this party started in a big way.


  1. Almay TLC lip stains + Revlon 12 hr eye shadow = all day awesome. Just sharing.
    What's a drugstore solution for red skin? Know an alternative to Clinique yellow mineral powder?

  2. Drug Store Alternative to Clinique's Yellow Mineral Powder=Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Truly Translucent Loose Powder.


  3. i love your blog. i know exactly how you feel being broke and constantly searching for good and affordable makeup! my fave at the moment is loreal's perfect match foundation. i'm half korean and half italian so it has always been hard to find a good base (until recently).

  4. bah, it's not perfect match it's feel naturale. whatever, it works and it's cheap.
