Is Skincare/Makeup Overpriced?


Is makeup/skincare overpriced? As you know, makeup and skincare are very popular at the moment. Although skincare and makeup is expensive. Some brands are okay pricing, it is still a lot for a $35 serum. To be fair there are other brands that are priced higher up. Some of the cheaper/higher priced skincare brands are Glow Recipe, Bubble, Tree Hut, The Ordinary, CeraVe, Peach slices, Etc. But there are also overpriced skin care brands such as Drunk Elephant, Clinique, Tacha, Charlotte Tilbury, Tlua and many more. We think that it is ridiculous to pay $95 for a serum and the cheaper alternatives are better, many people say. 

Here is a list of skincare brands we use:  


  1. CeraVe
  2. Byoma
  3. Peach Slices
  4. Elub 
  5. The Ordinary
  6. COSRX

    I agree completely with the overpricing in drunk elephant tbh when you mentioned drunk elephant I thought of the 12 year old drunk elephant sephora girls.
