Welcome to Frugal Friday! I love buying makeup, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy, however, the mortgage I’ve just taken on does not. These 2 things do not combine well.
Rather than giving up what makes me happy, I’ve decided to set myself a pretty tight budget. Hence the Frugal Friday Challenge. Each week I will be showcasing once of my budget beauty buys. I encourage you to join in. If you know a great product that meets the criteria, make sure you let us know in the comments!
- The item showcased must be makeup or nail polish
- It must be less than $20 (I’m aiming for under $10)
- If an item is on sale that brings it into this price range, it must be a nationwide sale, so that everyone gets the benefits.
Without further ado, I present the first Frugal Friday item:
Rimmel London Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil
Rimmel London’s Soft Kohl eyeliner is available in 7 shades – Jet Black, Sable Brown, Denim Blue, Jungle Green, Stormy Grey and Royal Blue. In Australia the recommended retail price is less than $7, and it is available from pretty much any Rimmel stockist.
This is my long-time favourite pencil eyeliner. I’ve been using it almost nonstop since I was about 14. I strayed once when I found a darker, softer black pencil that was cheaper – I was going through a Goth stage, everything needed to be blacker. I ended up developing a sensitivity to the cheaper option and came straight back to this my good old Rimmel Soft Kohl. I will never stray again.
It is hella rare that you will find me not wearing this liner on my water line. I’ll happily go barefaced with nothing but this little exception.
Have you tried the Rimmel London Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencil? Did you love it? Hate it? Let me know in the comments below.
