It may sound silly but one of the first things I purchased once I had a real job right after college was Lancome makeup (definitely a 22-year-old girl move).  I was tired of the drugstore brands I’d worn during high school and college.  I wanted the quality stuff!  It turns out sometimes the CVS products are just as good.  Here’s a quick list of beauty products to save on and splurge on.
