Should You Go For Discount Make-up?
We are all aware of the fact that most women cannot do without make-up. Although numerous manufacturers are creating a wide variety of make-up to suit every skin type and every budget, you cannot deny the fact that majority of women are afraid to purchase cheap or discount make-ups for fear of having allergic reactions or skin related problems from the use of these products. While it holds true that most expensive cosmetics are of the finest quality and you are definitely getting your money’s worth with your purchase, there are still certain products that may not suit your skin type. Although almost all of the cosmetic products are created to be hypoallergenic, there are still remote instances when your skin reacts to it with frequent breakouts with the occurrences of pimples or blemishes. I, for one am a victim of this. I had bought a cosmetic product from an expensive brand and yet my skin didn’t react well to it.
Due to the existence of competition and the desire to capture a big chunk in the market, the cosmetic industry has flooded stores and shops with numerous types and brands of make-up that is cheap and very easy on the budget. A big amount of a woman’s expense goes to keeping herself beautiful and that includes the purchase of make-up. But with the rising prices in commodities, quite often most women especially those who have families and who do not have high paying jobs are having a hard time allotting a portion of their money for cosmetic related products when they have other expenses to attend to at home.
Now, the big question is whether these discount make-ups are safe. Basically the answer is nobody knows. Though a big portion of the women’s population would say yes they are not safe because of the ingredients they may contain, I personally think that not all of them are. I suppose it’s a matter of finding the right one that suits your skin type. I strongly suggest though that you be wary on trying them on and do not just buy at an impulse without maybe securing a sample or getting positive recommendations from family or friends who may have used it.
If you are really not sure the best option would be to consult an expert. Also, most well known brands of cosmetics are pricing their products at competitive and affordable prices. You could also wait when they have sales or discounts. In this manner you would be able to save on your make-up expense.
