This debate has been going on for years and im always asked, do you prefer high end or high street makeup?
I'll just define what I consider to be high end and high street. High end is brands like Channel, Urban Decay, Mac, Benefit, Clarins, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Lancome, Nars, Dior I could go on...
High Street are brands like... Sleek, Rimmel, Maxfactor, MUA, No7, 17, UNE, Barry M, L'oreal, Collection 2000, Revlon...
Just before people get angry I have nothing against any makeup brands, im not personally involved with any makeup brands apart from The Body Shop.
I am strongly against animal testing for cosmetic reasons so I try to use makeup that I know hasn't been tested on animals. Most of the high end makeup companies DO NOT test on animals whereas the high street makeup brands mostly DO test on animals.
I tent to buy makeup products from High end companies because the pure quality of the products are just so much better! You pay a lot more money and sometimes the products are smaller but your paying for the quality, service and you know your getting a good product.
This doesn't mean to say I don't use or buy high street products but there is nothing better than bringing home a new Mac lipstick or Channel foundation and being extra excited to try it out.
I recently introduced my friend into High end makeup. I hope your all sitting down because wait till you hear this... she only had 1 lipstick in her whole possession !!!! Im not a huge fan of lipstick and i have 12!! So I just had to get her a loveellyy lipstick, she bought a beautiful nude cream style lipstick from Channel!
I could tell she was excited as the lady handed her a Channel bag, she held it with pride!! lol
Anyway if anyone has any views or thoughts about high end vs high street I'd love to here them! :)
