I used to think that makeup can look good only if it’s expensive. Well I was really wrong. Right now I think that drugstore makeup came a long way. Today you can create amazing makeup look using only drugstore products. Pigmentation is a lot better and formulas in general. If you look at influence that drugstore brands have in makeup industry now, you’ll understand how great drugstore makeup is in general. Of course there are more expensive drugstore brands like L’oreal that have all the latest trends in makeup industry. They own so many higher end brands and usually L’oreal makeup is amazing quality.
I usually buy drugstore makeup. Makeup in Bosnia in general is really expensive, so even drugstore makeup can get really expensive. My ultimate favorite affordable makeup brand is Essence. I also like Catrice, because they have some amazing products. Essence is really affordable, but some of their stuff is just great and part of my daily makeup routine. When you look at their packing it’s not really breath taking, but makeup inside is usually great quality. I feel like some other drugstore brands are a lot more expensive and the quality is just not there. If product from Essence doesn’t work, it’s not like you are losing a lot of money. But if I buy something from Bourjois or L’oreal, I do get pissed off, because those brands are really expensive here.
Sometimes higher end products are a lot better and you can definitely see why you’re paying more money. Usually I see that in mascara formula or eye shadows. I feel like drugstore brands don’t really do great eye shadows. It’s usually about pigmentation or blendability of shadows. So I feel like investing in high end eye shadows or palettes is good and it’s worth the extra money. Of course you can still make drugstore eye shadows work, there is a lot of tricks that help with that. I don’t really have a lot of higher end shadows, just a few of them. But if you check some of my makeup looks you’ll see that you can create amazing looks with just drugstore eye shadows.
Finally, makeup is all about preference. I would love to have more money so I can buy higher end makeup, but would I really spend a lot. Not really, again as I said I think that drugstore makeup came a long way. I feel like quality of some drugstore products is just insane and you don’t really need extra money for it. I will keep this blog with variety of course, but most of products that I feature on my blog are affordable and I like it that way.
That’s everything from me today. I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know which makeup you prefer? Do you spend a lot of money on high end makeup or makeup in general? Also what are your favorite high end and drugstore brands? Thank you for reading. Have a nice day! xx
