I make lists of beauty things I want to post about ALL THE TIME… but since they seem sort of small and not totally “post worthy” they end up sitting on the back burner waiting for an “appropriate” post which sometimes never happens and usually even when it does, it ends up getting lost in the shuffle. Which is why tip Tuesday was born! A home for misfit beauty tips.
I’m pretty excited about it, actually. (Christian adds “actually” to the end of everything lately “I want juice…actually.” “I think I’ll wear my Spiderman jammers…actually.” I love it.)
Anyway, while rummaging through my sister Randi’s makeup collection yesterday I practically yelped when I stumbled on this drugstore eyeshadow and realized the color was a perfect doppelgänger for MAC Brun. A dupe I’ve been searching for for ages.
Cause look, even if you don’t mind paying the extra dollar bills for the real thing, if you’re anything like me you consider trips into the MAC store to be a necessary evil. Where you’re going to probably feel intimidated and like you don’t belong…not unlike trips into Abercrombie.
Because when I walk into Sephora I hear angels sing and I feel so completely at home and free to be me but when I walk into MAC I just start wondering if I have something in my teeth. I don’t know what it is cause all of the MAC girls I have been able to get to know are perfectly wonderful people…it’s the just vibe in there. Or me, maybe. Anyway, there are many reasons why you might rather hop over to Walgreens instead of the mall and now you can!
Let me introduce you to Loreal Antique Brown-
Well now I’m looking at this photo I can’t tell a difference…
If you are new to the blog you probably don’t know that I use Brun daily, for filling in brows (on almost everyone it’s a chameleon color) for a perfect smokey eye and for a soft liner.
The color is a MUST HAVE and for $4.79 you cannot go wrong.
