If I could choose one fantasy to come true, it would be that everything in Sephora was free for one day. I would load up on all of the beauty products I’ve been coveting for months, without fear of what my bank account would look like afterward.

But unfortunately, this is real life, and regrettably, a lot of us are poor. But there is some good news, people! There are tons of drugstore makeup palettes out there that are cheap, cheerful, and seriously underrated.
