Discount store brand makeup?
Hello. Love the podcast. I found it recently and have binge listened.
I often will buy makeup at discount stores but usually only buy markdowns/overstocks of known brands, like Cover Girl or Revlon or Elf (which is inexpensive but ok quality).
However a certain dollar store often has some unknown brands and has been the subject of a recent trend in beauty videos on YouTube (past year or so) with people trying to create a look with items they find only at a dollar store.
Other than quality reasons (smudgy, poorly pigmented) is there a reason to avoid these items? I've heard on a certain podcast that false claims can fly under the radar more with smaller brands but is there anything dangerous? Here are some examples I don't see any ingredient info.
