Beautynomics - The Economics of Vanity
...and they say vanity isn't economical.

With the lean times that are ahead of us, we need to get all our money's worth. Inflation rates...fluctuating markets...lower purchasing powers. I didn't just tell you to lower the standards of the beauty products that you are using! I'm just trying to point out that, there are actually products in the market that are actually good, and with a good price too. Sometimes they are even good enough to compete, or even perform just like their high-end counterparts. One can achieve maximum satisfaction with a low budget, if only he/she can have a keen eye for detail in cosmetics / body care :) So , here are my picks, and I hope it does help you have more moolah saved for the rainy days!:)

SPLURGE : T. Le Clerc Loose Powder
SAVE : Palladio Loose Powder
Both use rice powder, a very fine, and non comedogenic ingredient.

SPLURGE : Shu Uemura Eyeshadows

Why comparable? They're both highly pigmented , stays long on the lids, and have vibrant shades! :)

Hiya! Just a quick note to let you know that I'm throwing a little Shu Uemura promotion. Visit! Thanks.
Are elf products just as good as the more expensive brands?
