Just how much can $50 get you at Walmart? I was given a $50 Walmart gift card and challenged to pick up some Back to School Beauty Essentials on a budget. Everyone wants to go back to school with some trendy new looks that embrace the latest trends. Even us mom’s want to celebrate our new freedom with some products that give us a fresh look going into the fall.
Smokey or Natural Fall Eyes – This amazing 8 shade eyeshadow palette has all the perfect shades for a multitude of fall looks and it’s only $4! Wet n Wild is a brand you will only find at Walmart!
Metallics / Jewel Tones / Bold Liner – A great way to embrace several of the fall trends is with fun and funky new eyeliners. Whether you want to go for a touch of metallic silver as seen on the runways or go for gorgeous jewel tone you can easily add one of the fun fall trends to your look with these liners from Annabelle and Rimmel.
Natural “Bare Skin” Complexion – Get the bare skinned effect and still look put together by using a full coverage concealer like the cult favourite Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer to erase any major imperfections on your skin while using a sheer foundation or BB cream on the rest of your face to get that bare, yet polished, look. Hard Candy is another amazing and affordable brand only found at Walmart!
Your Fabulous Fall Hair Trend of Choice – Mine happens to be pastel lavender and blue at the moment but whatever colour makeover you gave your hair to go into the fall season keep it looking fresh and vibrant longer with a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner combo like the new Color Shield line from Garnier Fructis. Give your hair movement and volume with this Volumizing Souffle from Herbal Essences.
Keep on top of all the Fall Beauty and Fashion trends with a couple of the latest beauty and fashion magazines.

$49.75 Total All this for under $50 taxes in at Walmart! Pretty impressive if you ask me. Walmart’s prices on mainstream drugstore brands is almost always cheaper than other drugstores and mass market retailers. Heck it even beats their sales prices sometimes. Not to mention you can’t find quality and affordably priced beauty lover faves from brands like Wet n Wild and Hard Candy anywhere else.
