    You know the feeling you get when you walk into Sephora where know you’re about to make some very bad (monetary) decisions, but you’re all, “I deserve to look good! Makeup budgets be damned!”? It’s ok. We’ve been there, too. There’s something about the endless stock of beauty products that induces wide eyes, a cold sweat, and a racing heart. And just like that, you rack up a hefty triple-digit bill.

    Luckily, we’ve rounded up a range of makeup essentials from Make Up For Ever, sold exclusively in the U.S. at Sephora, that won’t completely break your bank. There's eyeshadow, lipstick, and blush that can be additions to your stash without causing you to hang your head in shame when that credit card bill finally comes ‘round.
