I iz back again with another beauty ramble-ish post 😀 Please tell me if you’re already sick of these kinds of posts, because these are the only kind of posts I can put up until I get me a decent camera. Or I can always review products using stock pictures, but considering how much I personally dislike reading blog posts with stock pictures, I will not succumb to that temptation. YET. Tell me if you don’t mind stock pictures and I will resume my normal postings. 🙂
Please bear with me, and meanwhile, let’s have a chat about moolah and some hooplah! I believe that every single one of us here loves expensive, luxe & branded items but the only thing preventing us from going swipe crazy is our not so exciting bank balance. Am I right or am I right? We beauty addicts cant squander away all our hard-earned money on expensive products (or can we?), but should we then settle for second-rate products?

Cosmetics these days come in all sizes, colours, ranges, and prices, plus dupes are abundant in this little beauty world of ours, so there is no reason we cant buy amazing quality make up without breaking the bank! I’m going to list down some budget make up brands I can think of, and please do feel free to add-on to the list via the comments ❤ Drugstore brands include Maybelline, Revlon, Silky Girl, ZA, L’Oreal, Wet N Wild, NYX, and a whole lot more!
Here lies my dilemma.
I have friends who are beauty snobs and who only purchase high-end items & would never be seen stepping into drugstores to purchase makeup. On the other end of the spectrum is me, who doesn’t mind trying out most makeup brands as long as they are generally reputable. I love high-end stuff as much as the next girl, and I would love to ONLY purchase high-end products, but I rather save up my cash for more important things, like a new camera? Hahaha. That YSL lippie I’ve been lusting for can wait for now.
However personally, I also think that the quality of the high-end products are certainly much better than a lot of the cheaper ones, hence I do allow myself to splurge on high-end items every once in a while as a treat and to also get to know the high-end brands 🙂 I blog about beauty after all 😀 *
There you have my dilemma. Quality or Budget? Brand or Price? Should I be a beauty snob too?
What are your views on this? Would you buy an item for the brand name or will your budget be a deciding factor? Quality vs price?
Let me know what your thoughts are on this, I’m mighty curious on your choices! For the most part, if believe if you can haz the money, I say why not, go for it girls! Go on a Godzilla worthy rampage and clean out those Chanel counters!! But if at the end of the day, budget is a factor, remember that dupes are galore!
