If a makeup costs almost nothing to manufacture then why buy a brand and not from the dollar store?

    There are lots of things that you don't want on your face that the FDA does not regulate.

    Even the things that are regulated are not actually controlled.

    Studies have been done that show a majority of the makeup at dollar stores has toxic levels of lead.

    You don't want to use this just like you don't want to use fake makeup. It will cause issues, either with your skin or with your health.

      Not only this but it’s not near good enough quality

    Quality not quantity. Get the right stuff or don’t do it at all

    because quality and the cheaper the more harmful it tends to be for the skin.

    Some of the foreign-made crap is bad for you. Actual brand names, from Wet 'n Wild to ELF ($1 per item for those, usually) are fine.

    Dollar store makeup is cheaply made so it may contain chemicals that irritate your skin and it doesn't apply or wear well. The slightly more expensive brands have better contents and work better.
