hi lizzie123,

a couple more tips.  Did you know that Lancome is owned by L'Oreal?  Some of their products are suspiciously similar, except the L'Oreal version costs 1/3 as much as the Lancome one.

Lancome Color Design Infinite 24 Hour cream-to-powder eye shadow is EXACTLY like L'Oreal Infallible 24HR, with slightly different color selection.

The other one I've discovered is the Lancome Artliner is EXACTLY like L'Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner (again, different colors available).  I own both and the felt-tip brush pen is exactly the same.

Great thread! 1. Face product: L'Oreal True Match liquid foundation 2. Cheek product: Maybelline Flash Plum blusher 3. Eye product: Collection 2000 24hour Extreme felt eyeliner 4. Lip Product: L'Oreal Rouge Caresse lipsticks 5. Skincare Product: Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean cleanser 6. Nail Polish: Models Own Beetlejuice collection 7. Hair product: Elnett Volume heat protection spray 8. Body product/Perfume: Soap and Glory The Breakfast Scrub body exfoliator

Yay! Revlon C.S. is amazing and so are the Color Tattoos! Drugstore brands have come a long way and there are some fabulous products, even HG finds in those aisles!
