If you are anything like me then you constantly struggle with the back and forth foundation debate…high end or drugstore? Sometimes I wish the decision was as easy as choosing to have that second cup of coffee or indulging in that second piece of chocolate cake (did I just say that). Needless to say, when it comes to foundation we look for two major things, coverage and staying power. Once we find a product that meets these requirements, we hold tight and never let go, regardless of price or the measures we take to ensure our vanity is always stocked with a back-up bottle. Although I like to indulge in expensive foundation every once in a while, it isn’t always affordable or easily accessible. I tend to spend my time roaming the aisles of Target and Super Walmart, snagging diapers and baby food for my nine month old on a weekly basis. With that being said, reaching for a drugstore product is easier and more convenient. Don’t get me wrong, I can spend a Sephora gift card faster than it took to purchase one, but unfortunately it isn’t a place I frequent (and window shopping online daily doesn’t count) unless I’m spending said gift card or holiday/birthday money. The point of my rambling is that a girl has to have options; the option to splurge or the option to save.
Here is a splurge option for those moments that your Sephora gift card is burning a whole in your pocket:
Here is a save for those responsible moments when diapering and feeding your child is more important than spending an arm and a leg:
Can you tell the difference? Both foundations deliver full coverage and long-lasting wear and when applied to your skin, they look exactly the same. The only difference, the price tag.
What beauty products do you splurge on and what products do you save on?
