Drugstore vs prestige cosmetics – which is better?

This weekend the Lipstick League wants to know, Drugstore vs prestige cosmetics – which is better?

Painted Ladies – The good, the bad and the oily. Is the new NYX Cosmetics Can’t Stop Won’t Stop foundation a match for Sheila’s oily skin?

Phyrra – What do you wear to concerts? You’ll love my hair, makeup and Edgy Style Rocker Chic Outfit to see Clutch & SevenDust!

Prime Beauty – tries out the new Milani Pure Passion Eyeshadow Palette. Is it a fantastic drugstore find or fail?

Slashed Beauty – The new Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tints are giving matte liquid lipsticks a run for their money. See swatches and decide which shades to pick up this fall!

Beautygeeks – thinks it’s too early to focus on holiday beauty sets, but is doing it anyway. *shrug*

Blushing Noir – If you’re obsessing over those pricey Natasha Denona eyeshadows but aren’t sure you want to spend the $$$ you’re in luck! The Natasha Denona Mini Star Eyeshadow Palette is now available, but hurry…it’s limited edition!

EauMG – In case you were wondering, this was my most worn perfume of Summer 2018.

My Beauty Bunny – is a bit obsessed with the new Urban Decay Lo Fi Lip Mousse. She’s got a review and swatches of all shades on her blog!

Painted Ladies is Currently Craving: the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, which seems to be universally adored by all those who have tried it. I’m wondering if it will be too much for my normal-to-oily skin, though.

Question – Drugstore vs prestige cosmetics – which is better?
Answer – While I do love some drugstore products, I still prefer prestige or indie over drugstore.

  • I have no doubt that many prestige products are great. Many are also overpriced for what they are. In my country one cannot return a cosmetic product that has been used. So I prefer to scour Internet for information, find the gems of the drugstore world and spend my money on those.
