Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 16, 2005
If you've experienced sticker shock at the cosmetics counters lately, you're not alone. The $45-billion dollar cosmetics industry has successfully created the illusion that expensive means better, and women have bought into it hook, line, and sinker. Skin-care products with price tags upwards of $100 are becoming the norm. But it doesn't have to be that way, and Paula Begoun can show your readers how to shop smarter with her new article, "Drugstore Doubles: The Best in Beauty."
Finding makeup and skin-care products at the drugstore that are just as good as, and in many cases much better than, those at the department store is the focus of a new article by Cosmetics Cop (http://www.cosmeticscop.com) and best-selling beauty author Paula Begoun. In this 650-word article, Paula answers the following questions:
-- What $95 department-store moisturizer has a similar counterpart for under $20 at the drugstore?
-- Which product category should you never purchase at a department store?
-- What popular cosmetics company sells practically identical products in its several department and drugstore lines?
--A 650-word article written by Paula Begoun on this topic is available for reprint/use. Please access it at http://www.cosmeticscop.com/learn/article.asp?PAGETYPE=ART&REFER=SKIN&ID=163
