We love good make-up. And often times we find nothing wrong with spending some extra dough on really quality shades that no other brand has produced. But when we see an eyeshadow in the boutique that instantly reminds us of a more budget-friendly color, our red flags are raised.
Recently, we stumbled upon Giorgio Armani's Eyes to Kill in Lust Red [#1] for a whooping $32. And that doesn't include a brush or a complimentary 15 minute massage. But it did remind us of one of our favorite MAC shades, Beauty Marked [#2] which will only run you $15. Not bad but we knew we could find better. With just some simple drugstore browsing, L'Oreal Hip Duo in Sculpted [#3] instantly fit the bill for only $9. So instead of getting one shade for $32 or $15, we got two for $9. Beat that!
Seriously, if you can, let us know.
And, as always, if you've got something you love that's out of your reach, email us and we'll find you some more budget-friendly lookalikes for a future Aspire/Acquire feature!
