What the $9 Lipstick Has In Common With the $30 One

What does a drugstore have in common with Dolce & Gabbana? Usually, the answer would be a big "not much," but when it comes to beauty, things are different. The fabulous and famous makeup artist Pat McGrath worked with D&G on its newish Dolce & Gabbana makeup collection, creating a wide range of colors for the luxe launch.

What you might not know is that McGrath is also the cosmetics guru for Procter & Gamble, the company behind CoverGirl and Max Factor (which is soon to be discontinued in the U.S.). And just like she consulted on the high-end D&G beauty brand, she creates the color stories for these drugstore brands, too. It's almost the makeup equivalent of a designer doing a line for H&M: same talent, different product. And although I haven't tried the Dolce & Gabbana makeup yet, I've found Max Factor's Vivid Impact lipstick ($8.97) to be creamy and highly pigmented. So whether you splurge on D&G or opt for a more affordable choice, you'll have a bit of McGrath mastery either way.
