Beauty-twins: Is it worth overpaying, if there is no difference?

Modern market of cosmetics is daily updated, replenished with new, improved products. Fashion trends exist not only in clothes but also in cosmetics: decorative and outgoing. In obedience to fashion trends, manufacturers of luxury products and mass market segment often make similar products that are often not inferior to each other in quality, but at cost may differ at times. In this article, we will talk about such cosmetics twins.

You can find analogues not only of tonal basis, blush or lipstick, but also nail polish, and even fragrances. Some manufacturers do not make them specifically. Having just a few rulers, they offer a virtually identical product, in different series, differing in price because of the cost of packaging. Others deliberately manufacture clones to promote their products. In this case, the quality of cosmetics often suffers, but the packaging has practically no difference. Therefore, such cosmetics twins are not worth attention. Knowledge of representatives of the first group of similarities will save and not overpay for a fashion brand.
