Department Store Makeup vs. Drug Store Makeup

We’ve all been apart of this beauty battle. Do we have to take sides or can we play for both teams? Here’s the real breakdown on department store products vs. drug stores. Hold onto your wallets!

Department Store

Con: Full of germs

Pro: Customer Service

Con: Pressure to buy more products than normal

Pro: Free makeover with purchase

Con: Bad lighting to view new items

Drug Store

Pro: Affordable prices

Con: Can’t try on the colors before buying

Pro: Their makeup goes on sale

Con: No guidance on what to buy

Pro: Huge variety

Con: Hard to return unwanted items

*Makeup Tip*

A few major cosmetic brands have less expensive lines in drug stores Example: Lancome-Loreal or Smashbox-Max Factor. Do a mixture of products but, DON’T skimp on your foundation.
