Beauty Bargainista is simply a beauty blog dedicated to preserving the pretty without breaking the bank.

The editor, Mechele Pellebon Mallard, is a 40-something beauty junkie who wouldn’t be caught dead without her drugstore beauty products, her collection of come-hither perfumes, a vat of shea butter and her grandmother’s bag of old-school diet and beauty remedies.

Mechele believes that no matter what calamity or catastrophe the modern woman faces at home or at work, perfumed wrists and ankles, glowing skin, a smoky eye, a good detox and a bright red lip are essential beauty rituals.

Recession or not, women still deserve to look and feel good.

And Beauty Bargainista is here to help keep the pretty alive.

This site is dedicated to all the beautiful babes who believe that maintaining their daily beauty routine is not a meaningless waste of lotions and potions, but an essential element of being a glamour girl.

You’ll read this blog to gain beauty-bargain worthy tips and how-to’s on weight loss, hair removal, and the best inexpensive beauty products for your budget.

A little lipstick and a swipe of blush may not pay your light bill, but it has been known to unceremoniously lift the corners of a frowning mouth and give a woman the shot in the arm to go ahead and face her bright future.

Beauty Bargainista encourages beauty addicts and new face painters to look good for less (and indulging in a little “taking care of me” time) without sacrificing one iota of their self-esteem or their ability to turn a few heads as they enter a room.

Get ready to paint your face… and the town a bright shade of gorgeous!

You deserve it.
