We gave ourselves a FULL FACE (half face???) of cheap (or at least “affordable”) drugstore makeup and luxurious (and WAY too expensive) high-end makeup to see the difference – and we have a LOT of questions.

It’s the ultimate face-off – literally. Today on Beauty Break, Joslyn & Lily test a full face of cheap & expensive makeup products to see if going high end is REALLY worth all that $$$. It turns out there’s a lot of luxury versions of makeup products that are too extra for their own good. Seriously y’all - GOLD mascara wands? CHANEL oil blotting sheets? WHO IS BUYING THESE?!?! (Besides us for your viewing pleasure.)
The results won’t you surprise you – but maybe the real makeup lesson was all the friends we made along the way…

Lol all makeup is manufactured in the same warehouse, but all companies take and add to in order to improve the product, the cheap makeup normally gets minimal additives or nothing add which makes it bad quality. Higher end products add a lot to make it worthwhile and better quality.
I got such bad anxiety when Jos picked up that Tom Ford pallet, It looked like it was gonna fall out of her hands and $110 was gonna break all over the table 😧😂, also, Katy Perry's Katy kat eye covergirl mascara is the best mascara ever, don't at me 😂
Can I just stand up for maybeline for a sec? It's not the product itself it's the fact that you didn't powder ... At all and puting a pigmented product on dewy foundation that has not been powdered isn't going to represent the product well.
The best thing you all did was get rid of morgan, (at least I think that's her name). She actually tried to teach us, and I was like uhmm we could go to any other channel for that!!! I live for you two together!!!
What I use at the moment: Essence you better work gym proof primer, gosh mineral foundation, loreal million lashes excess waterproof mascara, and rimmel matte liquid lipstick 16 hours wear or something like that..
Here are some drugstore makeup products I use that I think I are good
Maybelline New York Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser, Wet N Wild Photofocus Foundation, Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer, Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder in the shade Translucent Extra Coverage, NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk for Eyeshadow Primer, Wet N Wild Photofocus Eyeshadow Primer, NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil (not many people like NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil because they don't have many good colors but I like it I have black hair and the dark brown works good for me), L'Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Plumper Brow Gel Mascara, Almy last up to 16 hours Eyeliner Pencil (for the waterline), I use a combination of the Almay One Coat Thickening Mascara and the Almay One Coat Mega Volume Mascara both in waterproof (I recommend those Mascaras for people with sensitive eyes) Maybelline New York Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in the shade Molten Gold, Maybelline New York Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in the shade Molten Rose Gold
Most of my brushes are either e.l.f. or Wet N Wild for foundation I like the Real Techniques Sponge
Since I have acne prone skin all my "skin makeup" (primer, concealer, foundation, contour, blush, setting spray and highlight) is high end ( nothing cheaper than $45) but all the rest of my makeup (eye shadow, lip color, mascara, eyeliner, and eye brow pencil, and eyelashes) are drugstore products (nothing more than $10).
Only use drug store brands! ELF for my primer, setting powder and finishing spray. Cover girl for my powder and mascara. Maybelline’s Fit Me foundation or their Instant Age Rewind with sunscreen, I mean like Josyln says we need our sunscreen! Any brand for my eye shadows, I look more for the colors than brand names on this one. Also for my concealer I use a Wet n Wild stick and their color corrector sticks when I need them. I don’t wear lipstick. I will wear the tinted glosses from time to time but usually I wear nothing or some chapstick, Birthday Cake flavor! Love you girls! You are beautiful no matter how much all the make costs! Hell yall look good with NO makeup on!
I use super sizer from cover girl. I do find that the wand picks up so much product that it leaves clumps. So I rub the side of the wand on the tube to take off access product and than it goes on flawlessly. I also use Rimmel London Brow this way. I use the cream side and smash it up until it becomes a paste and take a little bit of that and I'll in the brows. That is the drug store makeup I use.
