pat mcgrath and covergirl make runway makeup a real possibility.

Runway beauty is kind of amazing. Unlike the clothes on the catwalks, you can wear it immediately after you see it. And thanks to Pat McGrath - the master of faces who counts Balenciaga, Prada, and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo among her clients - you can buy runway beauty at CVS, too. This season, CoverGirl releases The Runway Shades from Pat McGrath, a roundup of LipPerfection colors from the Spring 2012 catwalks and beyond. You can layer them under gloss for the sexy Dolce & Gabbana look (also a McGrath creation), keep them flat to match your colored jeans, or try one of the shimmer-infused shades for a more textured finish. Each color retails for about $5.50 - way cheaper than anything beaming onto from Paris this week...
