I came across a great article today, written by Jennifer Calonia, U.S. News that I found extremely useful.

Drugstore vs Designer Makeup: When to Save and When to Splurge 

Just because you invest $30 into a tube of mascara doesn't mean that the product is going to last any longer than the one you can purchase in a drugstore for less than half the price. Before going on your next makeup shopping spree, refer to this article as a helpful guideline when trying to decide which products are worth the splurge and which products you should save your money on.

Products worth investing the higher price tag? Full-face application products like foundation and concealer are a worthy investment. When should you save your money at shop at your local drugstore? Products that tend to have a shorter shelf-life and are more prone to bacteria.such as mascara and eyeliner.

Great read!
