Drugstores such as Watson, Guardian, Aeon Wellness, and others are must-go places when it comes to shopping at the mall. People today including me, myself, instead of buying high-end cosmetics products, we constantly seek for drugstore cosmetics brands which is somehow much more affordable and worth buying. Why bothers buying high-end products when the drugstores brands are just as good?
Criteria that people always look for when choosing a cosmetics brands?
There are several criteria that need to be observe as a priority when selecting a perfect cosmetics brand:
- The quality
- The price
- Good reviews from consumers
- Duration or longevity of the products
From the criteria, we can conclude that drugstore products are well-trusted, easier to find and the quality is good compared to its price. Hereby I would like to share some of the top drugstore cosmetics brands that you should keep your hands on when you are out for a cosmetics hunt.
Drugstore Cosmetics Brands #1: Essence Cosmetics
Originally from Europe, it is Europe’s No 1 Cosmetics brand. Surpisingly, they offer a good quality beauty products for eyes, lips, face and nails for little money. I have been using their products since I was in University. The quality never fails me. The best from Essence is their light-feel foundation and mascaras. Unfortunately, Essence Cosmetics always sold out every time I walk into the stores!
Drugstore Cosmetics Brands #2: Catrice Cosmetics
Also originally from Europe, Catrice somehow look just like Essence but with different brand’s name. No test on animals, good price with a premium quality, Catrice able to catch Malaysian’s attention especially young adults. When Essence is not around, I will definitely take a look at this brand as their products are as good as the Essence.
Drugstore Cosmetics Brands #3: IN2IT
IN2IT also has its own fans. Made in Thailand, this product has been in the market for a long time. I had tried their waterproof triple blush code 02 and it was awesome. They gave me a great colour on my cheeks. In2IT are now releasing a new liquid matte lipsticks range with five remarkable colour choices for only RM 22.90. Watson having a sale now, it cost you only RM 20.61 each.
