In certain ways, yes. I would say a mid-end brand is better positioned to really compete, because when you reduce price, you have to reduce costs somewhere else. You might not get the fancy packaging of high-end makeup, but I think the products themselves can compete. Many of the drugstore brands come from conglomerates that own high-end brands, and a lot of the technology that the high-end brand develops will trickle down to other brands within the parent company.

I’m very lucky that nobody has forbid me to wear it, but certainly there are looks that are more or less appealing. For instance, I know my dad isn’t keen on makeup/nails (especially red nails!), but I take it in jest rather than mean-spirited. If someone had a serious problem with it, I would try to explain how it makes me happy and I enjoy it.

Sunday Link Love, Volume #070


Lauren creates a look with $14 worth of makeup!

Happy Sunday!

I hope it’s warmer by you than it is by me! It’s a rather chilly day–more winter than fall–over here in California. The sun is just barely peeking through the clouds. I’m one of those people who much prefers sun over clouds, because cloudy, grays feel so gloomy and make me feel less productive!
