In addition to my incredible parents, my Grandma is my best friend and my biggest supporter! At 88-years old, she always loves to be overdressed and look her best, and I definitely think I got my love for glamour from her! Even though she has no idea what a blog is or how to even turn on a computer, she knows that I love using and writing about makeup, so I thought it would be fun to see if she could guess the prices of some of my favorite products. Keep reading if you are in the mood to laugh because she’s adorable!

Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette

My Grandma’s Guess: $75

Actual Price: $38

“The palettes you buy are usually $50 and this is a lot bigger, so I thought it would cost a lot more. Wow, you got a good bargain, I like that!”

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

My Grandma’s Guess: $26

Actual Price: $24

“Better Than Sex! Well that’s a lie…”

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo

NYX Round Case Lipstick

“Well, I sure don’t know the price of merchandise these days — I flunked on everyone of them.  Just think of all the money you have in your makeip collection. I think you better quit buying more makeup and try and use what you have first. I buy powder, rouge, and lipstick from CVS, and that only costs about $20. But I do spend lots of money on things to get rid of my wrinkles!”

Thank you all so much for reading and spending your time with my Grandma and I. I hope you found this post entertaining and let me know if you would like to see my Grandma more on my blog; she’s been wanting me to do her makeup!

XOXO,
Makena
