Rant & Rave: Drugstore Makeup

This Week’s Topic: Drugstore Makeup!

Your Mission: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about drugstore makeup. What drives you bananas? What makes them necessary?

my answer: I love how much they’ve improved the quality in the past few years!  There are some really great products out there – but why is it that the ones that are really fantastic are limited edition or produced in small quantities and end up sold out?! What I don’t like is that it is still hard to find really great products… partially because there are a lot of misses still but also because you rarely can touch/play/feel with it prior to purchase.

What We’re Wearing, Vol. #081


My favorite look this week was… On eyes: Chanel Riviere, L’Oreal Sultry Smoke, Giorgio Armani #1 Eyes to Kill Waterproof Liner, and Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Waterproof Mascara.  I liked the color combination, though I’d try to recreate it with other products most likely!
