Drugstore Cowboy…

25 years ago this month, Matt Dillon starred in Gus Van Sant’s critically acclaimed film Drugstore Cowboy. It was Van Sant’s first major motion picture (Mala Noche was his first film) and it was the first time critics realized Matt Dillon had more than just good looks in his arsenal.

If this were a film blog I would continue down this path and trust me, nothing would make me happier than to marinate on Matt Dillon for the next little while, however we have work to do and I think you’re going to thank me for this one.

Today’s featured item is classic, versatile and will only set you back $12 us or $15 cdn. Found at your local drugstore (hence todays title) Maybelline’s The Nudes is quite possibly my best find yet. With 12 amazing shades, this palette performs! You get a variety of neutral shadows, some shimmery, some matte but all of them wearable.

Often shimmery shadows make your lids look like disco balls, whereas matte ones can look cakey. These go on smooth, look unreal and last all day.

Admittedly I am a fancy pants and we all know my taste in cosmetics runs at the higher end of the spectrum, but this could very well be the best $15 you ever spend! You won’t find another palette out there that is this good for this little.

So before I bid you adieu, let us take a moment to get psyched about great finds at great prices and well of course…Matt Dillon!
