These Inexpensive Steals Are Made By The Same Companies As Luxury Brands

Are you always on the hunt for good drugstore dupes of your favorite luxury cosmetics? If so, your mind is about to be blown by this industry secret. There are so many crossover brands in the beauty industry. These companies make both high-end and low-end makeup, with many of the same ingredients and formulas.

Figuring out whether you should buy luxury beauty brands or drugstore makeup can be a tough decision. However, cosmetics conglomerate L’Oréal owns Lancôme, and a lot of the products feature nearly identical formulas. If you’re trying to decide between Line Eraser Retinol Lotion by L’Oréal or Lancôme’s Resurface, save yourself a few bucks, and go with the less expensive version.

Other companies like Maybelline and IT Cosmetics or Estée Lauder and La Mer work together as well. It can get a little confusing to keep track of all the collaborations, but you're going to relish these deals. Get ready to save.
