Nothing makes me happier than finding something at a low price that’s amazing quality. When I look at my makeup collection, I find that most of my favorite products are actually from the drugstore. The drugstore these days is more expensive than ever before and I honestly can’t be bothered to spend $15 on a product from from the drugstore that’s average when I can get amazing products for $10 or less.
I’m very picky when it comes to palettes. I am not a person who needs a stark black or a pure white. I typically don’t use neon shades or pastels. I like to have a variety of finishes and textures. Basically, I have fairly high standards. So when Kim and I wandered into the NYX store in Austin, I was ready to get my hands dirty with swatches and pick out the best shades for my perfect quad.
Madewell has always been the shop of my dreams. Everything about it is so simple, classic, and modern. I fell in love with the brand when I bought a pair of their skinny jeans that seriously never stretch out. I got them on sale and they were still pretty pricy, but they are the best quality denim I’ve ever purchased. My heart still yearns for Madewell and I can’t help but peruse their site every once in a while. You know what they say. You gotta dream big. Consider this no budget Madewell wish list one of my big dreams.
