For me, when they start to be over $80, it’ll make me really scrutinize to see what I’m supposed to be getting for the +$30-50. I’d be willing to spend it if it was the perfect foundation for me (shade, texture, finish, coverage, wear, etc.). I regularly use two shades in a given foundation to help tweak undertones or depth, which often brings the cost of one formula to $80-100 anyway. I think the most expensive foundation I’ve purchased myself is La Mer’s The Soft Fluid.

Please respect other members of this community who may spend more or less than you. It’s about discussing and thinking about own personal limits without judgment of others’ choices nor insulting someone who does or doesn’t want to spend more or less.

It’d be nice to get interviews or some feel for the founder when it comes to newer brands or ones that have a real story behind them, but too often, founders are incapable of behaving professionally for long. I think that they should consider having personal accounts and sharing some behind-the-scenes aspects of what they do, but they need to be very careful about interacting with customers on social media.
