I’ve complained about my makeup routine on Lovelyish before, and since I wasn’t in love with anything I was using, I decided to experiment a bit with products. What I found was that sometimes you don’t have to pay the extra for something that works great.
1. Great Lash Mascara, $4.99 by Maybelline. This is some of the best mascara I’ve ever used. It’s hard for me to tell the difference between this stuff and the Dior Show I tried a while back, and since this is significantly cheaper it has become my go to mascara!
2. Lash Stiletto Liquid Eye liner, $6.99 (also) by Maybelline. Eyeliner and I don’t get along well. I once bought some Smashbox pots on super sale, but I struggled with them so much that I ended up not using them. I ran out of Line Stiletto the other day and went back to use the Smashbox stuff and they were all dried up, so I can’t compare the two directly. Although Line Stiletto takes a little bit of getting used to, once you get it to work, it works wonders.
3. Essential Brightening Eye Color, $1.00 by ELF. Although I haven’t actually given this eye shadow a try yet, this week’s Cheap-O Friday post inspired me to give it a go! Not to mention I could literally buy this one with the change in my purse.
Have you Lovelies tried any of these products? Will you work one into your daily routine now? What’s the one item you don’t think is worth spending money on?
