Make-Up Brand Battle

Do you ever wonder if paying more for a product is worth it? I do all the time! I’m so budget-conscious that it takes a lot for me to spend more dolla dolla bills, y’all. So I thought I would save you the trouble and worry and host a little make-up brand battle and let you know my opinion of when it’s worth buying high-end and what drugstore dupes are just as good! Here’s a little side by side of me putting each on…

Here’s what it all looked like with no filter right after application.

By midday, this is what it was looking like after mask-wearing and lunch, with no touch-ups.

And then late-night, just before bed, no touch-ups, no filter. This is what we call getting vulnerable online 😉

Can you tell a difference from side to side? For the most part, all of the products wore well, but I did discover some favorites among the bunch. So here’s my verdict:

Other products used that’s a toss up:

Thrive Causemetics shadow sticks and Elf Cosmetics shadow sticks. Elf is a little messier but it’s also less expensive. I love cream shadows so for me it really just depends on who has what color I’m looking for…

I didn’t have a high-end loose powder to compare because I love the Maybelline Fit Me! loose finishing powder so much.

Regarding brow gel, I just grab whatever clear is the cheapest 🙂 Right now it’s the Maybelline Great Lash clear.
