Is expensive make-up better than reasonably priced make-up?

28 Sep

I prefer using the term ‘reasonably priced’. I don’t like using the phrase ‘cheap make-up’ as it brings up the idea that the product is tacky, inferior, breakout inducing make-up. These exist of course, but that’s another story.


Has anyone ever commented on the makeup you’re wearing by saying ‘I love that pink MAC lipstick you’ve got on’ or ‘that ELF eye shadow really does suit you’? (If you can spot a brand like that, you’ve got a very rare talent indeed)
My point is whatever brand of make up you choose to wear, weather expensive or reasonably priced, the end results depend on weather you have chosen appropriate colours or formulation for your skin tone and type and your application technique.
You might say expensive brands have been well researched etc etc. But nowadays you could find high street or drugstore products which contain high tech ingredients; and which perform just as well as high end products if not even better. Did you know that  Lancôme is owned by L’Oreal? Nuff said.

Reasonably priced products which work for me :
