    Do you believe that affordability is the most important factor in purchasing makeup or quality?

    For me, it's affordability. There's no sense in spending money you don't have on makeup you can't afford.

    I have to consider the quality and what skin its intended for before affordability. Money is an important factor,but for some people like me that have sensitive skin, cosmetics that don't produce rashes, burn or cause break outs is first on the list.
    Women ought to research what some ingredients in cheap make-up  and the potential harm they can do.Parabens and other preservatives cause hormone disruptions...Read the labels and do your homework ladies.

      Thank you for your answer! The ingredients of any makeup are super important. I completely agree. Those with sensitive skin are extra careful when it comes to buying their makeup and can't compromise on the quality. No one wants reactions to makeup.

    Quality for sure.  I bought cheap makeup for a long time but the difference between quality makeup vs cheap makeup is very noticeable imo.  I'm happy to spend the extra money on a product I know actually makes me look good, is right for my colouring, and looks the way it's supposed to.

    That said, I don't wear makeup all that often so I usually get the max amount of time out of my products, so the cost is spread out and not a huge deal.

      Thank you for your answer. I started my makeup collection with drugstore makeup (which really isn't cheap either.lol) Then I started to build it with high-end brands like M-A-C. Yes, there is a major difference between pigmentations.

    yes, there is a lot of proves about it.
    one of the most common problems of buying a non-quality cosmetic/makeup, is pimples and acne. For example, according to my personal experience, I used to have a baby-smooth face, until I begged my mom to buy me makeup, of course she would start with the cheap ones so I could practice with. I used these inexpensive makeup for probably one year, just after, my face started having lots of spots and pimples. I am now giving my face a makeup-free a break.

    And yes I guarantee you that quality is more important.

      Hey! Thank you for your answer. It is imperative to keep some sort of skin regimen when using any makeup products whether they are affordable or high-end, this will allow some prevention to many skin problems that it may cause. smile

    Hina,
    When I buy lipstick I always go for the kind that stays on all day. It just makes sense. It does cost more, but you don't use as much so it all works out. Also, I've noticed that less expensive eye shadows don't apply well, so it is necessary to spend more money in that department too.
