Drugstore Vs High End Lipstick

Let’s talk about drugstore lipsticks versus high end ones. I have to admit that while I’ve been able to streamline most of my cosmetics to just the essentials, lipstick hasn’t been on that last. I don’t know what it is about a great lipstick but it can turn my mood around. When I reach for a red I feel more daring and sophisticated. A pink makes me feel like having fun and dancing all night. The big question is, however, is it worth it to spend the extra money on a high end department store brand? Perhaps a collection of drugstore brand lipsticks is all you need.

There’s a huge debate going on. Watch my views below and tell me, where do you stand?


Drugstore vs high end lipstick, which one do you reach for?

  1. I don’t think we’ll ever have enough lipsticks..or makeup for that matter, either…and I sure love me a good splurge, though I don’t think it’s always necessary. My fave ones to splurge on: YSL but good average MAC lispsticks are always worth the investment.


    1. Yeah agreed, MAC is always a good choice but sometimes I just can’t help but splurge!

  2. I love that you are dong Vblogs!
    and totally agree you can never have too many lipsticks! It all depends on your mood!
    x Kirsty

    1. Thanks!!! Yes I’ve taken the plunge. I hope you enjoy them.

  3. Being the college student I am, I can only afford drugstore lipsticks most of the time.

    Theatricality by Mariah

    1. That’s totally cool. Whatever works for you is the right way to go! I didn’t start buying pricier makeup until I got a full time job. The secret is to sign up at makeup counters because you never know if they might not be handing out great samples!

  4. I’ve wanted to try the Tom Ford lipstick for sooo long! Your reviews are really insightful, I’m glad I found your blog – I’ve followed you on bloglovin so I can see all your future posts and not miss out 🙂



    1. Tom Ford lipsticks are expensive but the lasting power is worth it. I can’t get enough! Thanks so much for stopping by and for the lovely comment. I will drop by your blog!

  5. Stephanie Dawn Sjoberg

    Wow! So you decided to start doing vlogs! GREAT!

    1. I did! I’ve been thinking about it for a while and I finally jumped in. I hope you enjoy them.

    1. Thank you!

  6. Great Vlog!! Can we ever have enough lipstick?!? lol! I find myself somewhere in the middle…I don’t think it’s completely necessary to splurge on high end lipstick but I do find that drugstore lipsticks dry out my lips. And they’re never pigmented enough for my skin tone. I’ve been dying to try out Tom Ford lipsticks but I’m hesitant to order because I’m scared I won’t like the colour. I never buy lipstick without trying it on first.

    xo, Jackie

    1. Agreed, lipstick must be tried on, the tiniest variance in shade can make all the difference!

  7. hi Caroline!
    I love the fuchsia lipstick of Yves Saint Laurent, wonderful!
    kisses, Flò

  8. aaah wanting to try YSL forever but I just cant pull the trigger! now if I can only stop buying so many drugstore ones though! 🙂 hehehe
