Disclaimer: I love drugstore products and affordable makeup but I do love to splurge on high end products. I do beleive you get what you pay for. This blog is no way bashing affordable beauty. I love my Drugstore beauty products most of them are amazing and perform very well. If I have my eye on a high end product and my heart is set on it I save until I can get it. Don’t settle for the dupe.
I believe you should invest in a beauty product you truly love even if it takes some time to save the extra couple of dollars . When you are settling for a dupe that you dont really want, you end up spending more money. How are you spending more money when the dupe is cheaper? Lets think about it.. 80% of the time i try and purchase a dupe i end up throwing it in my makeup drawer and forgetting about it because the product didn’t meet my expectations. A couple weeks later i go back to the store to try and buy something different which doubled my initial investment. I could have orginally purchased what i really wanted but instead i ended up spending more. Spend the extra money, and save the extra money by purchasing what you really want.
