Today I bring to you some of my favorite makeup choices, both expensive and drug store brands. Sometimes it is justified to spend more than normal on a key beauty product!!
Let's start with the eyes. For the expensive version of mascara, I use Christian Dior, DiorShow. Hands down the best I have ever tried. However, as of late I have not been very impressed with this mega label. It has been a little dry for my taste and doesn't elongate like it used to. Funny enough, I am not the only person who has mentioned that!
My inexpensive, drug store brand that I have been loving is Luminous by L'Oreal. It is inexpensive and definitely does the job. I might be faithful to this one for a while!
How about shadows? Well, you might have guessed from the many times I have mentioned it, but I truly love me some Eyes Lips Face. It is truly affordable ($1 people!) and does a great job.
For the more expensive version, I would go with MAC. Love their products overall, but the shadows are great. Unfortunately, because this is in the more expensive category, I don't own very many... boo.
Now for the lips. I have been very into wearing bold lips lately. my absolute favorite is a bright pink by MAC called Show Orchid. It is beautiful. I bought it on a recent trip to LA when I was feeling empowered in the London Airport. I spent the whole flight trying to come up with ways to justify this to the husband and found none. Then I stopped trying to justify it and just embraced it and it turns out, he didn't say a thing! Just "oh, that's what you bought in the airport. I was thinking magazines couldn't have been that expensive."
My less expensive favorite for bold lips is by Maybelline called Very Cherry. Sometimes I mix this with a e.l.f. color called Posh for a deeper red.
Well, what do you think? These are just a few, and I will be sure to post a follow up with some other beauty favs of mine.
What are your favorites? Inexpensive or otherwise. I am always looking for a new buy, especially in the inexpensive department. :) But I still want to hear what you splurge on!
