Makeup Comparison | Drugstore vs. Prestige Brand Smoky Eye

There is always a lot of talk about dupes and comparisons between drugstore and prestige brand makeup. Some people say they can find perfect matches. I decided that I would pull out an old drugstore smoky eye palette that was once a favorite. It has been quite some time since I used it and decided to give it a try!

I filmed my drugstore makeup look and then filmed the Urban Decay look using similar products. I decided that I was going to start a new series with this! I thought it would be fun to try out different makeup products and see which ones are worth they hype and which ones are best left on the shelf! 

To start this series off I plan on going back through some of my old makeup favorites and seeing how well they compare to the products I use now. 

Here is the video on the drugstore makeup look! This entire look was created by all drugstore products. Please keep in mind I am definitely not a makeup artist. I am just a wife and mom who happens to love makeup. 

This next video is using the Urban Decay Smoky Palette and all higher end products. 

Here are the products I used to create the drugstore look.

Make sure you check out the description boxes on my youtube channel for details on each product.
I also took a quick picture of swatches of both shadows side by side.

And a side by side of the eye look.

Check out this video for details on the new series and my final opinion of these two looks.

Love and Hugs!!
