Back to Splurging and Saving
Cover Girl Lash Blast, Max Factor Lash Perfection, Maybelline Great Lash (if that's your thing).
The only thing besides hair I will voluntarily splurge on until the day I die is Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals foundation, because those drugstore imitations just do not compete. Why? More expensive powders are more finely milled; your NARS blush will produce less streaks than the Rite-Aid version; it's not your imagination-those MAC eyeshadows really are more pigmented than the corner knock-off.
So, shop at the drugstore and remain confident that-as long as you're picking the right products-you can still equip yourself with the best...all while saving money for those expensive highlights! Or for rent. Toss up.
