If you didn't know by now, I'm a self-proclaimed boujee girl — especially when it comes to beauty products. I live for the latest prestige skin care, makeup, and hair products, partly because I'm a sucker for luxury packaging. Not to mention it also looks extremely attractive on my vanity.
Additionally, I'm a firm believer that often times you get what you pay for. My favorite toner ever from Biologique Recherche is $90, my favorite eye shadow palette from Mother Pat is $125, and my favorite facial from PCA is $325. Excessive a bit, I know. But what can I say? I've long had champagne taste on a beer budget, and beauty has been what I've always been willing to splurge on. Oh, and food of course; I live for a fancy meal.
But even with all of that, don't get it twisted. I do love a bargain. And as someone who lives and breathes beauty, finding a dupe to my favorites is always a win/win. But the amazing thing about makeup is you don't always have to spend an arm and a leg for quality. Honestly, most of the time you don't. Or do you?
To test that theory, the team at Revelist put one of makeup's most sought-after and praised palettes to the test against a similar drugstore palette. Which one do you think got the job done the best?
