$150 to Replace Your Stash?

Friday, December 21, 2012

Ok. So hypothetical situation. Your beloved makeup stash has gone missing. Say someone stole it and you have $150 to start replacing the items. What would you buy and why? (Of course, I would just use the $150 to hire a thug to beat up the person who stole my stuff... but... you know). I saw this post over at Project Swatch (and in turn, from Temptalia) and had to give it a go.

This was pretty hard for me since a few of my HGs are high end and that ate up a lot of my budget. Not only that, but I never, ever buy drugstore makeup at full retail price but I figured in this imaginary situation, it would be confusing to factor in sale prices and coupons. So after some head scratching, this is what I came up with.

Black Radiance Complexion Perfection $6
Make Up Forever HD Foundation $42

NYX HD Eye Shadow Base $7
La Femme Eye Liner Sealer $3 (turns everything into eyeliner!)
Laura Mercier Artist Palette $48

Bite Beauty Lipstick Discovery Kit $25

1/8th Loew Cornell Angular Brush $4 (as eyeliner brush)
EcoTools Set $10
e.l.f. flat top Powder Brush $3


I'm actually one two dollars under budget. You'll notice that I don't have any blushes, I figured my Bite Beauty lipsticks could double as cream blushes. Not ideal, but on a budget it gets the job done. I prefer things that can offer a range of looks (hence the pricier Laura Mercier palette that takes up quite a bit of my budget) but I think it is well worth it. My next few picks would probably be NARS Douceur ($26) blush to sculpt my cheeks and Sephora Matifying Compact Foundation ($20).

What would you buy with $150?
