High End Cosmetics vs. Drugstore Cosmetics: Beauty Battle

Steal vs. Splurge Cosmetics and Makeup

Lord knows I’m a high end cosmetic junkie. I live by the rule, “you get what you pay for”. Dishing out $20 for an eyeshadow that easily blends, has plenty of pigment, and simply looks stunning is way better than dishing out $5 for one that blends awful, has a chalky formula, and just looks awful on my eyes.

You get what you pay for.

However, some drugstore cosmetics have convinced me that they deserve a special spot among my elite high end cosmetic brands.

Here’s a post that checks out the best of both worlds and includes the best High End Cosmetics vs. the best Drugstore Cosmetics.

Biore Resort Pore Pack Nose Strips Relaxing Floral Review

A year or two ago Biore introduced Mandarin Blossom scented nose strips. Obviously the idea never took flight in the US. Shrug, guess we aren’t so inclined to have scented nose strips…?

I happen to be inclined which is why I snatched up some of the Biore Resort Pore Pack Nose Strips. I like scented products, sue me. While I’m sitting around waiting for plaster to dry up on my nose, it’s always pleasant to close my eyes and pretend I’m on a tropical island.

Which one of those things so do not go together right? Oh well! I dig the scent!
