Did you know Bourjois owns Chanel cosmetics?
Not only do they own Chanel cosmetics but their products are also pretty much the same quality and formulation. The only difference is the price point, which works to our advantage as consumers. Definitely no complaints here! :)
As an example, Chanel Joues Contraste blush retails anywhere from $43-$60 – depending on where you buy it from and which country you’re in. The Bourjois blush, which is the exact same consistency and quality is $9-$16, again, depending on where you buy it from.
So unless you specifically want the Chanel brand or the packaging, I’d say stock up on the Bourjois blushes as they have a great variety of colors too.
It’s always nice to treat ourselves to a high end product but I must admit, as a makeup artist, I’ve been very impressed with the quality and variety that drugstore brands are offering. They have really lifted their game and challenging the higher end counterparts.
I will definitely be updating you on different brands and new product lines in the near future ;) xx
What’s your favorite drugstore brand? Have you found any drugstore dupes to replace a high end product?
