I.S.O. makeup advice! (Prescriptives cosmetics counters are closing)



Prescriptives Save on mascara. Splurge on base.

So goes the age-old makeup advice to which I have faithfully adhered. But what to do when your favorite makeup line disappears?

In case you haven't heard the news, Prescriptives cosmetics has decided to close its retail counters, effective Jan. 31. The Prescriptives counters at local Dillard's department stores are offering 30 percent off, but they're already sold out of my color.

What's a girl to do? Prescriptives products are still available online, but I'm thinking it's best to switch lines. The question is: where to go?

I moved to Prescriptives a year ago, when I decided it was time to move beyond Clinique. Maybe I should go back to the happy days of Clinique (bonus time!) Or I could be chic and explore MAC cosmetics. I love their lip glosses, but switched from MAC's pricey powders to clipping coupons for L'Oreal compacts when the recession began. I haven't looked back.

I need advice. Heck, every girl who's ever spend too much money on makeup could use some recommendations. How much are you willing to spend on foundation? What brands are worth it?
