One or the Other
February 1, 2023
Today, we’re taking a look at some of the hottest beauty and fashion products that are currently trending at both high/(end) and low price points! Our team came together and selected some of our favourite comparable finds which will have you looking and feeling your best… without breaking the bank. So no matter your budget, you can get in on the fun!
First up, let’s talk about the classic Beauty Blender Makeup Sponge. This iconic tool has been a staple in many beauty routines for years (mine included), and for good reason. The teardrop shape and unique texture make it perfect for seamlessly blending foundation, concealer, and other products. But with a price point of around $20, it can be a bit of an investment, especially if you want to switch yours out more often. If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, try the Paw Paw Wonder Bender which comes in a pack of six for the fraction of the price! This alternative is made from the same soft, bouncy material and will give you the same great results, if not better! I just got my hands on a package and I’m impressed and might have to officially make the switch over!
Next up, we have the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter. This creamy, radiant formula is a cult favorite among beauty gurus, but with a price tag of $38, we might have found a similar option for less. If you’re up for trying the viral lower budget option, check out the e.l.f. Halo Glow Liquid Filter. It comes in several shades and gives you that same stunning, lit-from-within glow at a fraction of the cost.
Quo Gloss Over Skin Stick is a budget-friendly alternative to Chanel’s popular Baume Essential Multi Glow sticks. Both products offer a skin-enhancing glow, but Chanel’s formula is typically considered to be of higher quality and more long-lasting. Quo’s stick offers a similar effect at a more affordable price point. Consider Quo for a budget-friendly option or Chanel for a luxury beauty experience. However, some reviews rave they are the exact formula! You might just have to try for yourself!
Next, we have the Milk Makeup Primer. This nourishing formula is known for creating a smooth, hydrated base for your makeup, but it comes with a price tag of around $36. For a more budget-friendly option, try the Elf Power Grip Primer. It has a similar formula, provides the same benefits, and is available for around $10.
Moving on to fashion, let’s talk about the much loved Lululemon Scuba Half-Zip Hoody. This cozy, stylish piece is perfect for working out, running errands, or just lounging at home. But, with a price of around $108, it can be a bit of a splurge. (Still a favourite of mine and highly recommend!) If you’re looking for a lower price alternative, try this cult favourite Half-Zip Hoody. It has a similar style, is made from soft, comfortable material, and is available in many colors and for less than $50.
Finally, let’s talk about style of cardigan that everyone has been talking about this season! The Celine Cardigan with Gold Buttons has definitely the choice girls have been reaching for. This chic, stylish piece is perfect for layering and adds a touch of glamour to any outfit. But, with a price of around $1,300, it’s definitely not for everyone. If you’re looking for a more affordable alternative you’ll be sure to see them popping up at your favourite retailers, check out the H&M Conscious Collection Cardigan. It has a similar style, is made from soft, eco-friendly materials, and is available for less than $50. Or my personal favourite that I have currently in my cart the Massimo Duty cardigan is even lovelier in person.
So there you have it, some of the hottest beauty and fashion products of the moment, at both high and low price points. Whether you’re looking for a luxury item or just something to add to your collection, there’s an option for everyone!
