Let’s Discuss: High + Low

banner-2Happy snowy morning! You guys know that I don’t discriminate when it comes to beauty – whether it comes from the drugstore, or Neiman Marcus, I’ll try it all.

I have so many makeup favorites at so many price points. For instance, take the above products. On the left are two of my top high-end lip products, and on the right are two new drugstore loves, L’Oreal’s Brow Stylist Plumper and Maybelline Line Stiletto, to be exact.

This got me thinking about your favorites – I’m always looking for good recommendations, so I’d love it if you’d leave your top high and low end makeup items in the comments!

    I almost always research drugstore products before I buy em so I know I’m getting my moneys worth!

    I’ve been loving the new Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara from the drugstore, and have been obsessing over the MAKE Satin Finish Blush on the high end!

    The L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadows are amazing (Amber Rush is my holy grail shadow)! On the high end, I’ve been totally obsessed with the Lorac palettes.

    My higher end recommendation would be the Tartelette palette. It is gorgeous!! My drugstore recommendation would be Milani’s Bella Shadows and their statement lipstick.

    For higher end I love all my Nars/Estee Lauder foundations etc, but I still love the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation the most and thats a low end one! I try them all though x

      I’ve read so many good things about that Bourjois foundation – I wish it was available in the US!

    I’ve been thinking the same thing! Just did a full drugstore dupes video for my favorite high end products that might help πŸ™‚ Most recently the Marc Beauty Contour kit, Le Marc, NUDESTIX have been all I crave and wear lately. Also the Dior Nude Air foundation is perfect lightweight love. My review will go up tomorrow on my channel for it as well, but you gotta try it!

    Love your blog! High end – Cle de Peau lipsticks (the formulas are exquisite). Low end – Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner (063 is amazing).
