You're on vacation and you lose your makeup bag, your wallet and your coupons. A kind stranger gives you $20 and directs you to the nearest drugstore with a note that reads: "Here, get some makeup to get you through the next few days." What do you buy?
- You have all your skincare and makeup removers but no beauty tools, meaning no brushes!
- This nearest drugstore only carries mainstream brands but it does NOT carry elf. That would be too easy!
- No sales are going on and you don't have a rewards card.
- Plus side... no sales taxes
First I'll just say that if I lost my wallet while on vacation the LAST thing I would be worrying about is my makeup. Just saying! ;) But for the fun of it....
Here is what I would purchase....
Wet N Wild CoverAll Concealer $1.99
Rimmel Clean Finish Foundation $4.99
Wet N Wild Color Icon Blusher $2.99
Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio
(No eye primer needed... concealer will do in a pinch)
I would pick up two trios, one for a day time look, one for a night time.
2 @ $2.99 = $5.98
Wet N Wild Mega Protein Mascara $1.99
This is a total of $17.94. In the real world I would need to pay for taxes so I would most likely stop with those purchases and skip the lipstick. I'm not a big lipstick person anyways. However, If I was going somewhere special and felt like I needed lipstick I would try to find something that I might could use as a lipstick/blush deal.
I tag YOU! What would you pickup at the drugstore if you had to buy some quick makeup under $20 and you didn't have ELF available to you?
