Stunning Eyes for Less!

One of my favorite (although pretty expensive) brands is Make up Forever. Ever since I got my make-up done professionally for head shots, and the make-up artist used their products on me, I fell in love, especially with their Iridescent Navy Blue eyeliner. The blue is such a robust shade, and made my almond shaped brown eyes really pop out. It’s absolutely gorgeous! Right after I was done with my shoot, I ran to Sephora and picked one up. About a month ago, I was running out and was heading back to Sephora to restock. On my way there, I had to stop by Duane Reade and pick up something for Mr. DE. Now, as a beauty fan, you know I can never just walk past the beauty aisles. I have to spend a few moments looking at the products, and checking all the new inventory out. As I was looking around, I noticed the Fresh Minerals display and their eyeliner selection.

Their $4.00 Royal Blue waterproof eyeliner looked exactly like my precious $16.00 Make up Forever one. Although I was hesitant to betray my Make up Forever, I reluctantly picked up the Fresh Minerals one (hey $12.00 in price is a big difference, I could buy my lunch with that) and I’m so happy I made the change. The Fresh Minerals Royal Blue is almost exactly the same shade as my Makeup Forever, a gorgeous, almost black but noticeably brilliant navy blue, and it glides on so smoothly -even after a gazillion times of applying. It's waterproof, and stays put on my eyes all day. I love this stuff, and at $4.00, I think you’ll love it too.

What eyeliner do you love?

These are hard times; do you have any cheaper alternatives for more expensive products?


Big Hugs,

Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the info. Instead of paying for OPI nail polish or MAC, Chanel etc. I opt for maybelline 3.99 or less if you catch a good sale. It's great to cut corners whenever possible.
Have a great weekend.

Look great, check out Jordana eyeliners, I think the whole product line in exclusive to Walgreen's, they have the most gorgeous liners, dirt cheap, I mean for around $2.00 a pop! They are good quality too, they stay put!

Hi, I wanted to let you know I'm a big fan of your blog and plan on profiling it in the coming few weeks on my own. (PS: I'm also doing a blog roll). Just wanted to give you a heads up.

Great article, but don't forget another thing to make your eyes look younger is a good anti wrinkle cream to pep your eyes up. I wrote about one here http://www.skinandhaircare.com/?p=11
Thanks

In these harsh economic times, I shop around for bargains on salon quality hair products that I like. However, in regards to skincare, Aveeno is much cheaper than Clinique, and it's much easier to use!
