Young Living released their new makeup line last week, which I am so excited about. I switched over all my makeup to a safer choice at the beginning of the year. It was something I had been wanting to do for awhile, but had a hard time finding something I liked and felt good about using.
Ok, so we all like savings right? Sometimes we talk ourselves out of spending money on things because we THINK we are spending a lot. Well, I am not typically a couponer or a price matcher but I thought I would compare and contrast the cost of YL's makeup with a few other leading companies.
Here are my interesting finds for the basic things we all buy when we think of makeup:
Young Living Savvy Minerals (Wholesale Price):
Eyeshadow (one color)-15.25
Total=$153 (w/out Lipstick-$130.25; w/out Lip Gloss-$125.50)
BeautyCounter Makeup (non-consultant price): Eyeliner-$23
(w/out Lipstick-$167; w/out Lip Gloss-$168)
Bare Minerals Makeup (Retail-only option): Eyeliner-$17
Total=$152.50 (w/out Lipstick-$132.50; w/out Lip Gloss-$134.50)
So, as you can see: 1.) Young Living's makeup is NOT expensive; 2.) Hello, INGREDIENTS??? I mean, the stuff I can trust is really no more then the stuff I can't trust. Maybe you get a tad more (like multiple eyeshadows or a duo blush pack) but I am happy to get quality over quantity. ☺️ AND BEST POINT OF ALL: Many others don't give me POINTS BACK when I order!!!! With my YL order I can add these to my ER order, get 25% back (if you're just starting you will get 10% and work your way up) which is $38.25 back on an order of $153!!!!! So, what does that? Does Target? Ulta? Amazon?
Edited: beauty counter does give money back if you are a beauty counter member. You pay $29 for the year subscription and get 15% back on purchases and free shipping on $100 or over.
Just something to chew on. ☺️
