Drug Store and Department Store Makeup

Hello Dolls!

We all know there are a ton of products in the makeup world to choose from. We have drug store and department store makeup.  To complicate things even more we don’t know which is better? Drug store? Department store? What we do know is that their are some differences. Starting with price.


Drug Store Cosmetics

Drug store cosmetics can be very affordable. You can purchase lipsticks that retail for as low as $1.00. Department store lipsticks can reach the sale price of over $60.00.  Packaging is also a difference between the two types of markets. Inexpensive makeup tends to be simpler and have less detailed packaging.  Pigmentation is another difference. Some people believe that more expensive products have higher pigmentation, and low end lack pigmentation. Some people prefer to stick to drug store cosmetics only. Others are on a strict department store only makeup diet. So with all of these options and differences what is the best way to go? I’ve come up with a helpful tip. Don’t judge a makeup brand by its packaging. Give all brands a try. You never know when you will find your next favorite product. The truth is there is no right or wrong. It depends on individuality and preference. I like to mix and match, and give myself a mixture of two great beautiful markets! By trying a variety of products I’ve been able to save and splurge. I’ve had hit and misses along the way but those hits have been worth it!
