In these tough economic times we are all looking for ways to cut back and modify how we spend our money on food, gas, clothing, etc. What about your cosmetic purchases? How do you cutback without sacrificing the quality of your makeup? No worries, I’ve done some extensive research for you and I have found that actually some cosmetic brands sold at drugstores are in fact a good find. One cosmetic brand that really stands out to me is MILANI COSMETICS. Their quality, texture, pigmentation and wearability rivals MAC cosmetics but at a fraction of the cost.

For instance, are you looking for a mineral makeup without the ash, sheen or cakiness it is sometimes known for? Then look no further because I have found it! MILANI has a beautiful compact Mineral Powder that offers great coverage without the ashiness, etc. In fact I use this product in combination with their Cream-to-Powder Foundation when I don’t have time to airbrush myself in the morning. The whole line is fantastic! Here is a list of MILANI products that I personally use on a regular basis:

Easybrow Pencil
Brow Powder Kit
Velvet Lips Creamy Lipcolor
Mineral Compact Makeup
Cream to Powder Makeup

MILANI can be found at CVS, Kmart, Target and Walgreens.
