I just poked around a smaller Sephora (we have two close by) and bought a couple of things:
- Caudalie Beauty Elixer (travel size aisle of Sephora) for a.m.
- Stila retractable black liner
- Bite cream blush
Then I went to Marshall's and poked some more.
- Dr. Brandt's Transforming Pearl Crème for $19.99 (from what I have read, a very high end brand)
- Marc Jacob's Essential Hues Eye Color for $12.99 pack of 3
Another disclaimer. I do like the more expensive lines for some things, such as color. And oh man, would I LOVE to be able to afford La Mer, but I don't so, I need to chill on that front.
I have always believed that the more expensive brands have deeper pigment, and I can just tell when the color is of the drugstore variety. On me, anyway.
