The Splurge vs Steal section in women magazines, has grown very popular in the last few years. It shows readers how they can get the same effect, of a relatively expensive beauty product without breaking the bank. While it is not illegal in the cosmetic industry to replicate a non patented product, it is clear that these products below are exact replicas of other more high end ones.
ORIGINAL vs COPYCAT

i think i can understand the point of “soft copying” when it comes to the lack of the inspiration…those products really have similar touches but still even if i hate copy cats i find it ok here!:)
I agree with you. It is, after all, good to have options especially in this economy! It just strikes me how unoriginal the ‘creative’ team at Physicians Formula is 🙂
Thanks for sharing your opinion
