I needed to replace a few essentials and instead of going to Sephora (almost 4 months since my last purchase!), I thought I would try some new-to-me drugstore alternatives to save some money. Here’s how much I saved vs. what I would have bought at Sephora:
NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Espresso: $11.99 vs. ABH Brow Wiz in Dark Brown: $27.00
NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Black: $11.99 vs. ABH Brow Wiz in Ebony: $27.00
NYX Black Matte Liquid Liner: $9.99 vs. KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper: $25.00
NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray: $9.99 vs. KVD Lock ’N Load Makeup Setting Mist: $30.00
Could have spent: $109
Only spent: $43.96
This gorgeous palette came out during my no buy in the summer, they had it listed as a permanent item so I didn’t feel rushed to buy it… and then I waited patiently for over 2 months for it to come back in stock. It was worth the wait. Modern Renaissance is my second ABH palette, the first being the beautiful Master Palette by Mario.
A present-day take on Renaissance colors, this eye palette features 14 shades that let you create stylish, day to night looks. From the earthy yellow and ultra-matte finish of Golden Ochre to Primavera’s shimmer gold with a metallic finish, this palette’s high-pigment shadows are crease and fade-resistant and are sure to bring modern elegance to your eye looks.
