High End vs. Over The Counter: LIVE TV Segment On AMNW

Coming home from LA and then turning around and doing a beauty segment was a total whirlwind. Needless to say I always have fun on the show, and I really enjoyed showing how you can get an over-the-counter makeup look that rivals a high-end. For my high end look I went with a mix of items I use in my makeup kit regularly. For the over-the-counter, I wanted to keep thing’s simple and go with just one brand, Neutrogena. Yes there are several over the counter items that I like, but sometimes when you go to a drugstore, the choices can be overwhelming and there is no one there to help you make a good choice. I like this company, and for the most part, their makeup tends to get really good reviews.

This image was taken from my i-phone, so not the best. But which side of my face is over-the-counter (around $80.00) and which is high-end (around $300.00)? Camera LEFT or Camera RIGHT?

  • Great job! I couldn’t tell a difference at all. Just goes to show expensive isn’t always better.

    • so true! i am a sucker for my high-end products…but if you are looking for results that are similar…you can still get it. I think most of it has to do with your application.
