I hate to admit it. I have, on occasion, purchased make-up at the dollar store.
That’s why I was in awe of all the options when I went to Sephora on Saturday with my friend Emileigh Clare, who is super into girly things (click here to check out her Smart make-up blog).
As soon as I saw my face in the mirror, I couldn’t believe it. I looked spiffy.
My dad even commented that he “liked my face” when I saw him that evening for dinner. Not sure what he meant by that.
Alas, there was only one problem. The moisturizer was $34 and the Bare Minerals Start-up kit was $60.
“THIS FACE IS GOING TO COST ME ALMOST $100?!” I thought.
I left the store empty-handed. Couldn’t do it.
I’m all for beauty, but that seemed, to me, to be one hefty price tag for a pretty face.
