Now, more than ever, you may be wondering exactly where you should invest your beauty dollars, and when (or if) you should buy more expensive brands.
When to break out the bucks...
Risi-Leanne Baranja, Editor-in-Chief of international beauty product review site palacinka.com, features thousands of reviews from over 400+ global brands and products.
She offers a few tips to keep in mind about what you're buying when paying more:
-More concentrated ingredients: A little will go a long way, which means money saved in the long run.
-More quality ingredients and testing, leading to in better results. Put simply, the better your skin looks in the end, the less foundation, powder, etc. that you will need to use!
-More glamorous and sturdy packaging (this is for women who love what their beauty products look like in addition to how they work.)
-Value is never about price point -- women will pay a lot of money for products that work. In the end, even if a product if very cheap, if it doesn't work, and doesn't make the you feel great, then it's not a value -- no matter what the price.
