Drugstore lipstick or drugstore mascara?
Drugstore mascara! There have been some been pretty great ones on the market for a while now, right up there with the expensive schtuff.
While I do love a good drugstore lippie, there’s just something extra special about a fancy-lady lipstick. 😁
$5 or $35 shampoo?
Eh, I’m down with the $5 shampoo. My hair is finicky, for sure, but the budget stuff generally works just fine for me (most of the time). I’d rather save on shampoo and splurge on other hair products, like conditioner and leave-ins. Now, those are a different story, ha!
Economical or extravagant skincare?
My checkbook says “economical,” but my heart (and my experience lines) scream “extravagant!”
High-end or budget foundation?
I can totally do budget foundation, but I’m more likely to find a good match for my skin tone with higher-end foundation lines… So high-end it is!
Would you rather have a few pieces of Charlotte Tilbury makeup, or a whole sh*t-ton of Milani makeup?
I’d rather have a few pieces of Charlotte Tilbury makeup. That would be cool. I’ll take a blush, bronzer and an eye quad please. Thank you very much!
Save or splurge — nail polish?
I love fancy $30 polish, but as of this very second…let’s go with “save.”
Save or splurge — body wash?
SAVE, no doubt. It just washes down the drain anyway! I’ll take anything by Aveeno.
Fancy body lotion or fancy perfume?
Ya know, even though the chances of me actually finishing a bottle of fancy body lotion are higher (I’ve done it before, and I can do it again!), in this instance I’d go with the fancy perfume, since it should, in theory, last longer.
Would you rather have one hella expensive brush that you absolutely love, or a full set of inexpensive brushes that technically work but are a little scratchy?
The one brush, because I got no time for brushes that bother me in any way, shape or form, hahaha!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Happy Thursday! 😊
