Budget Babe: L'Oreal's Genius New Dye

Budget Babe: L'Oreal's Genius New Dye

Written By: Katelyn Chef

Beauty fanatics and hair dye enthusiasts unite: L’oreal has a new at-home dye that is about to make your life a lot easier.

Introducing L’Oreal Paris Preference Mousse Absolue – a pre-mixed bottle of hair dye that promises eight weeks of super-rich color. The best part about this under $15 dye is that the resealable bottle allows for multiple uses, which means that you won’t waste a drop and will have to spend less on dye overall. Genius.

There’s also a new formula involved. This is a foam hair dye, Chicas, and take it from us – the new application is much easier than what you’re used to.

L’Oreal’s Mousse Absolue currently has a variety of fourteen different shades ranging from light golden brown to a dark auburn brown, so now the only hard part will be to find your favorite color.

Dying your hair has never been so much fun (or so affordable!).

Color Clutch | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

Here’s a scenario you might be familiar with:

You’re on the hunt for your favorite nail polish color and you just can’t find it. Maybe it’s at the bottom of a large cosmetic bag or a plastic bag. You spend a good 5 minutes looking through the awkward-shaped bottles, and when you finally find the color you want at the bottom of the bag, the nail polish has separated from improper storage.Color Clutch | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

Frustrating, isn’t it? Luckily – there’s now a solution thanks to Color Clutch. This compact nail polish storage solution will store your nail polish correctly, take up little shelf space, and display your polish perfectly so that your favorite colors can be easily found.

The project is currently on Kickstarter and already more than halfway to goal. You can pre-order your Color Clutch now at a variety of price levels, all of which are affordable.

See? We knew you’d like this. Stock up on one for yourself, and a few for the holiday season – needless to say, the Color Clutch would make the perfect gift.

Budget Babe: Perfectly Plum Lips | The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style

Budget Babe: Perfectly Plum Lips

Written By: Katelyn Chef

As much as we love a classic red lip, sometimes a Chica needs a change. And when it comes to this season’s hues,  plum is the color you need for fall — in every shade from deep plum to vivacious purple.

Jessica Alba can pull off the perfect plum lip. So can The Good Wife, Julianne Margulies, but can you? We say yes, with a little thanks to MAC ‘s gorgeous plum shades for fall.

Might we suggest the divine Smoked Purple (which is a gorgeous, very-on trend matte) or rather a more vibrant shade like Heroine?

You won’t go wrong, no matter which plum you pick. When you’re shopping, keep in mind that they key is to select a shade that compliments your skin tone. Light skin tones work best with plum shades that fall in-between the red/purple family, and cooler skin tones can pull off nearly any color of purple or plum.

We’re game if you are. Which shade of plum are you?
