Splurge vs Steal beauty

As your Cyber Main Gay and self-professed beauty junkie, you know that I sometimes have a penchant for expensive beauty products. I received a text yesterday from a woman who said “Harvey! $900 for a throat cream? That’s more than my mortgage! Have you lost your big gay mind?” Well she didn’t say “big gay mind” but I think that sounds more dramatic when I share it at cocktail parties, don’t you? Anyway, you get the point.

So I’m interrupting my 2011 Emmy Countdown to plant my feet firmly on the ground where many Americans are having a tough time because of the economy. I get it. I’m not spending like I used to right now either. At the same time I want to feel pretty and use products that I know work!

And the three I’m getting ready to share OUT PERFORM their department store competition! Take note girls! These are STEALS that make you feel like you SPLURGED!

1. RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream

ALLURE MagazineEditor’s Choice Award winner that really works! Look younger or your money back guaranteed! They also have a sensitive skin formula. Around $19 compared to department store products at $250 – $500. Check out this clinical study for the facts!

2. Revlon Color Stay Makeup 

Best long wear formula to this day! 16 hour flawless finish that feels great! Around $13 compared to department store brands at $45 – $80.

3. L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara

This is always my number 1 pick for best in class! Builds lashes to 5x their original size! Gorgeous and long wearing! Around $7 compared to department store brands at $25 – $85.

So now I’ll sleep better tonight knowing that my girls can be beautiful and save for a rainy day (or at least save for that new pair of shoes you have your eye on)!
