What to do?
It's 11:00 p.m. and you have a 6:00 a.m. wakeup call and NO mall is open between the hours you have to get ready. You can't show up tomorrow with a bare face & no makeup. Is the world really ready for the cavewoman look? Uhm... NO!
What do you DO????
You head to the nearest CVS or 24/7 Walgreen's.
Hey, Drugstore makeup is better than NO makeup at all, right? And brands such as L'Oreal, Maybelline, Miliani, even NYC have really improved in the past few years. Heck I even wear a lot of drugstore products now and keep the MAC, YSL, Chanel, etc. stuffed in the drawer.
I live on the edge, what else can I say.
L'Oreal's new Studio Secrets Primer is amazing! I love it and the price is right. I have YSL, Tarina Tarantino, and Cover F/X Primers but really like the Studio Secrets for staying power. It hides and diminishes imperfections. Glides on and it is priced so reasonably.
Compare YSL at $45.00 to L'Oreal at $11.00.
Next wonderful find is:
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Liquid Foundation. It goes on so easily with it's "Eraser-Like" Applicator and after buffing it on it really does leave your face with an airbrushed look. It has replaced my MAC and Chanel foundations simply because it WORKS!
Talk about rewinding... Can they PLEASE make something to Rewind the husband???? Oh, that may be another post altogether. *sigh*
Another drug store find that I am using daily is L'Oreal Liner Intense Felt-Tip eyeliner pen.
This one makes creating that sexy Cat-Eye just plain as easy as drawing a line and filling it in. The long felt tip is so easy to use. To be honest, I used to struggle terribly getting that perfect cat-eye look but not with this new-found eyeliner.
I am Cat-Woman~ Hear me ROAR!
I LOVE this one and have put my MAC eyeliner away.
L'Oreal has really stepped it up in my opinion and their Lash boosting Serum System Mascara is in one word... AMAZING.
First you use the "primer" side. It's white and wonderful. It makes your lashes thick and defined and Loooong. It has a lash boosting ingredient that lengthens your lashes with use. I just like it as a lash primer. If it makes my lashes longer... Bonus!
Flip it over for a perfect mascara with no flaking and long luscious lashes.
Way to go L'Oreal.
I hope you are never stuck in a situation and find you have nothing to use for make-up.
I've been there and it is as unpleasant as it gets.
I would honestly trade a day of water-boarding for a day with no makeup.
J/K but No Thanks.
