Is paying more for designer brand cosmetics really worth it?
We wanted to know the answer to that question when we found a foundation from Boots that was almost the same as the one we had been using by Clinique.
How did they match up? Let’s go to the tape!
|Boots No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream for Normal / Oily Skin in Fair||Clinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30 in Shade 02|
|£12.95 for 40mL||£25.00 for 40mL|
|PROS: the price; SPF 15 is perfect for daily wear; face felt less oily and make-up stayed put||PROS: a little goes a long way so one bottle lasts awhile; you can wear it as a primer or by itself; higher SPF is nice|
|CONS: one coat didn’t quite give the coverage we were hoping for||CONS: the price|
|WINNER: Clinique, but only by a nose|
