All of my friends think the drugstore brand cosmetics are junk - they will only buy and swear by Mac, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Lancome, etc. It is very frustrating when I want to recommend a new lip gloss or eyeshadow to them. I cannot afford the expensive brands of cosmetics, so I use things like Rimmel, Revlon, CoverGirl, L'Oreal, etc. I bought this awesome, shine enhancing lip gloss at a drugstore w few months ago, and fell in love. I thought I would give it a shot and I gave it to my friends as a Christmas present. At first, they all looked at me like deer in the headlights. Then, to my surprise, they all started to open it and try it on. This had never happened before! Now I was like a deer in the headlights. I gave them each shades that I thought would match their skintones, and they loved it! They all told me they would use this stuff every day and every chance they got. I was so happy that I had finally turned my friends over to something that wouldn't empty their pockets, along with mine.
