It continues to become abundantly clear that the cost of drugstore cosmetics has risen considerably over the last ten years. The fact has never been clearer for me than after I walked out of an Ulta recently with a receipt held in my hand for a Maybelline Eyeshadow Palette that I paid $16.10 for.
There’s a certain embarrassment that comes from spend nearly twenty bucks on a very small eyeshadow palette from a drugstore brand. You’ll find yourself thinking about how you could have went to Sephora and probably gotten a better deal on some mid-range brand. And right now, with a plentiful round of gift sets available you can get quite a good deal of bang for your buck at Sephora.
Yet here I am the proud of owner of a Maybelline Eyeshadow Palette that cost me $16.10.
