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.

Beauty on a Budget Spotlight: New Makeup Available At The Drugstore

new in Beauty drugstore

If you’ve been reading Musings for a while, I’m sure you recall the days that I didn’t review drugstore brands (US ones anyway). Things have changed considerably in the last year or so and I’ve embraced alot of US drugstore brands as I wanted to cover all aspects of beauty not just high end but also lower.

This past Spring (and some of Summer if you consider it Summer already) has been an incredible time for drugstore releases. Makeup quality has changed in the past few months as have the releases in store which had made going to my local drugstore a rather fun experience rather than a chore. Granted, not ever release is a good one but hunting down new products and finding gems in the rough so to speak is always great fun.

Do take a look at the slide show below for some of the latest and greatest releases that are available now at your local drugstores. Some are well worth checking out!

If you’re reading via RSS please visit my blog to view the slide show.

Have you hauled any of these items or collections for yourself?
