Fashion Math: Is An Eye Shadow Really Worth $50?

Let me start by saying that I will never (with a 99.9% certainty) own a brand new, authentic Yves Saint Laurent handbag, gown, or other piece of clothing unless it is gifted to me by some generous fashion deity. It’s not that I’m cheap (well, maybe a little), but YSL is just a touch outside my budget. Luxury cosmetics, however, are affordable in comparison, and give me a chance to look like I make a six-digit salary without spending like I do.

While a drugstore makeup supporter through and through, an eye shadow upgrade is worth it because the quality is 10 times better; you can count on richer hues, longer staying power, smoother application, and a lower likelihood of creasing. I think this Yves Saint Laurent Eye Shadow Duo is so worth the price, but let’s do the Fashion Math first:

There you have it. At an implausibly low $.50 a wear (or less depending on how heavy you apply your makeup), there is hope for those of us who may never own the real thing, but who want a little luxe in their life just the same.
