LEIGHTON MEESTER: DRUGSTORE DIVA
Spending a ton on cosmetics may be a drop in the bucket for GOSSIP GIRL’S queen bee BLAIR WALDORF. But that simply encompasses the character’s usual shopping habits.
In real life, actor LEIGHTON MEESTER said that she’s all about bargains when she’s buying beauty products.
“Look, I’m a South Florida girl — if you need mascara, you go to Walgreens,” LEIGHTON recently told StyleList.
“One of the joys of my job is being able to try all different products. But if I can spend a lot less on something, I’d rather do that.”
LEIGHTON saves an extravagant amount of money by stocking up on some of her essential drugstore must haves, including Cover Girl lip stains, L’Oreal Naturale Mascara and one of her ultimate favourites: cocoa butter.
“It’s 99 cents! I love it,” she raved.
But regardless of what she’s using when getting dressed up, she always keeps one style icon in mind.
“Oh, Bette Davis. Those lips. You know how you’re supposed to choose between playing up your eyes or your lips? I always choose lips.”
“I love the drama.”
