Does anyone know of a website that compares expensive makeup brands to drugstore brands?
For example: If you like Lancome Definicils mascara, you will like the drugstore brand of .....
Any help? Thanks!
I'm not sure, but I know that Maybelline, L'Oreal, and Lancome are all owned by Lancome. For example Lancome has a mousse type blush ($26) and so does Maybelline ($7) and the formulation is the same. You could probably find a good duplicate for Lancome mascara in the L'oreal line. Some websites (like Covergirl and L'oreal) have a makeup matching function where you type in what you're using and it offers suggestions (some are more fine-tuned than others). HTH!
actually lancome is owned by Loreal. At least thats what i was told. I don't know about a website to compare products but that would be nice. I have been a long time lancome mascara user and have tried everything to save a few bucks but nothing to my satisfaction.
covergirl was running a commercial saying you could find their dupes for dept store brands. haven't checked it out myself, but I'd give that a try.
beautypedia.com has the details-but you need to to the reading & comparison.
I think it is worthwhile. I found out how common the ingredients in LaMer are!
I know Comsumer Reports does reviews and ratings of makeup. There is a grocery store mag that does also - I think it's call Shopsmart.
Myself, I prefer drugstore brands such as Loreal or Almay. If I want to go fancy, I head into the department store and get some Estee Lauder. I've been brand loyal to these companies for years.
Thanks for the replies.
I'm using Lancome Definicils Pro with a curved brush and love it. But, I'm tired of paying the high price. I'd like to find a drugstore equivalent.
