I understand the meaning of a budget for sure so I am always on the search for products that maybe less expensive than the higher end lines but still pack in the punch.
Recently I discovered an amazing eyeshadow pallette by Maybelline that is so awesome for evening, you won’t need anything else. It’s called “Maybelline-Eye Studio Color Explosion." And it really is explosive! It comes in all these amazingly fun colors. Use one or two or play with the whole kit if you’re daring!
