Tube of MK medium coverage foundation: $14. Covers well, wears great, excellent skin tone matching.
Bottle of same amount of L'Oreal or Revlon foundation: $12. Skimpy coverage and is see-thru and shiny by lunch time. Tends to be yellowy or pinky, never really blending perfectly with your color.
That's a two dollar difference. Two dollars! Time for people to stop chanting over and over "MK is so expensive." Sometimes, not always, it costs a buck or two more than drugstore items. Sometimes it costs the same or a bit less. Have y'all looked at drugstore makeup prices these days? They have gone way up, but the quality has not.
Tube of MK lipstick: $13.00.
Tube of Revlon or L'Oreal lipstick: $12.00
One dollar difference. Guess which one lasts longer and is more moisturizing? Hmm? Guess!
MK eyeshadow single: $6.50.
L'Oreal or Revlon eyeshadow single: Usually $7.
Hmmm. Guess which one has better pigmentation, better texture, blends better, lasts longer, and doesn't flake off and irritate your eyes?
Are we starting to see a picture emerging here?
I just got rid of 90% of my drugstore makeup. There are a select few items that stand out, like a liquid eyeliner that is truly waterproof, but those are rarities. I can no longer be bothered with washed out, chalky colors or lipsticks that give me dry lizard lips. I will no longer tolerate foundations that turn shiny and orange. It *doesn't* cost me more to do better. In fact it costs me less because I am no longer throwing stuff away when I discover that it sucks. If a MK product is defective, I can return or exchange it via MK4me no problem.
So instead of believing whatever you hear, everybody please go out and verify. Look at your local and/or online makeup prices. Open up the MK website and compare. (plus, I dare you to find an eye makeup remover that holds a candle to MK's. really.)
