I am excited to be able to share a guest post with you today by my friend, Amy. She and her husband, Steve, lead Financial Peace University at Northway Christian Community in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. She is a “frugal friend” and has an awesome tip to share today!
I wanted to share a fun website that you might enjoy! I LOVE cosmetics and am always looking for ways to find good products that are affordable. My problem was that I was always buying things, using them for a little while then deciding that I didn’t really like them and my money was down the drain. Another girlfriend of mine suggested I read product reviews at: www.beautypedia.com
This is an awesome website. It used to be available only if you paid the subscription fee, but now it’s free! The lady who does the reviews, Paula Begoun, is a consumer expert and has been on Oprah, CNN and The Dr. Oz Show. What I love is that you can search by product (example-eyeshadow) and she will give her recommendations at each price point. Often if you read the more detailed review of a product you will find that the drugstore brand product offers just as good if not better results than the more expensive department store lines. This has saved me so much money!!!! Now I don’t waste time and money just trying products randomly. I thoroughly research them on her blog and then make my purchases.
