Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 2 - 2014

Question of the Week: Name the most expensive and inexpensive products in your current daily makeup routine.

lipstickleague - final

Answer: That’s hard to answer because I chop and change my cosmetics daily.  So, I’m gonna cheat and change the question from “makeup routine” to “beauty routine”.  The most expensive would be my perfume, the Liz Earle Botanical Essence No15 which I’m completely stuck on at the moment… and I suppose my most inexpensive would be my choice of night cream, Eucerin Even Brighter Night Cream, which at under £20, is pretty affordable for a targeted piece of skincare.

  1. Erm, most expensive is probably my dim light powder. Least expensive at the moment is a 17 brow pencil. I have the day version of the even brighter and really like it!
