YouTube Beauty Gurus seem like they only talk about the most expensive, luxurious, and out-of-reach makeup. All of the brand new products, high profile collaborations, and epically expensive skincare routines can be discouraging for the budget beauty lovers out there. Let me assure you, though, that there is a huge discount- and budget-friendly beauty community on YouTube just waiting for you to get hooked on their cache of affordable makeup reviews.
This week, there were five excellent videos from even more excellent beauty content creators that will absolutely inspire you to hit the drugstore, or the sale aisle at your favorite makeup store!

Juvia’s Place, if you’re unfamiliar, is an indie beauty brand that is slowly but surely becoming well-known for their intensely pigmented, long-wearing, and creatively-curated eyeshadow palettes. Best of all, Juvia’s Place palettes are on the affordable side at only around $20 for 9-pan palettes and $25 for 12-pan palettes! Here, one of my favorite (local!) beauty gals reviews multiple palettes from the brand and, spoiler alert: all of the rumors are true!

Most people have at least a small cringe reaction at the idea of buying used makeup, but a newly blonde Kristen Leanne put the concept to the test.
