In spite of my love for shopping, I am somewhat frugal. I will splurge on some items but frankly don’t feel it’s always necessary. If I can find an inexpensive and comparable product at a drugstore, I have no problem buying it instead of the more expensive brand. Plus, with the money you saved, you can buy more important things- like shoes. A few years ago I bought an NYC (New York Color) mascara that I loved, but I hadn’t seen in stores for a long time. Last week I stopped at Rite Aid to buy wine (keeping it classy) and they had an entire display of it! NYC is sold at drugstores and is easy to overlook because honestly, it appears cheap. But I’m thrilled I bought their Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara. NYC’s slogan is “Bargain cosmetics for the fashion-forward girl.” While I haven’t tried their other products, I suggest buying Sky Rise if you’re in the market for a new mascara (or a hoarder like me). It doesn’t clump and is the BEST lengthening mascara I’ve ever tried (how many times can a person say mascara?!). The greatest part? It’s only $1.99. Bargain, indeed.
What are some of your favorite bargain products?
