MakeUp — Drugstore Prices
Drugstore MakeUp– and what it might cost.
I went window shopping to help y’all out. Here’s what a basic kit would have cost me:
There’s a huge range of prices out there, and so many of these items below show that “drugstore range”.
These items were at a well-equipped Vancouver, Canada drugstore (one of a large chain) in May 2002. Prices will of course vary depending on your location, year, and currency, and make-up shop. You can find your own deals by shopping around. These prices below are from visiting *one drugstore* on *one day*. They’re to help give you an idea of the cost, nothing more.

Some notes: I picked the mid-to-better brushes, as cheap brushes shed more hair than my cat, but you can skimp on these if you must. You can often pick up a set of cheap brushes, rather than buying them one at a time.
