Instead of: MAC Freshwater Eye Shadow, $15
Try: Wet n Wild Lagoon, $2.29
MAC's Freshwater eye shadow is a gorgeous ocean blue shade. Not only does it apply smoothly, but it’s super pigmented. This eye shadow is definitely an attention-getter. Because it's so bright, I love to use it on my lower lash line for a fun pop of color. But if you’re really brave, sweep it over your entire eyelid. I always get tons of compliments when I wear Freshwater, and it stays in place all day long!
Lagoon by Wet n Wild is the same vibrant, blue color for just $2! It has the same satiny finish as Freshwater and blends amazingly well. It also stays on all day and doesn't smudge at all. Lagoon isn’t as pigmented as MAC's version, but I actually prefer that. I can brush it over my lids for a sheer touch of blue or apply a few more layers and build up the color to the shade I feel like rocking.
