22 Of The Best Beauty Product Dupes Of All Time

I love buying new make up, and I love saving money -- dupes are the best way to have the best of both worlds!

I am a make-up and beauty product junkie. I always have been, and probably always will be. My heart yearns for the high end, and raved about products. Unfortunately for me, my wallet cannot support these desires. So, if you're looking for a way to keep your make-up game on 'fleek,' but you're on a college girl budget -- check out these amazing dupes of name brand products:

1. NYX Lingerie in 'Bedtime Flirt' for Kylie Lip Kit in 'Candy K'

You won't get a matching lip liner with this one, but they are pretty much the exact same color. NYX does have a line of very affordable lip liners as well. So, finding one to match shouldn't be too hard, and will still save you money.

NYX 'Bedtime Flirt': $7.00

Kylie Lip Kit 'Candy K': $29.00

2. NYX Liquid Suede in 'Vintage' for Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in 'Trust Issues'

While ABH's liquid lipstick has a little more of a matte finish than NYX's Liquid Suede, the color swatches are almost a perfect match. The top lip, pictured above, is 'Trust Issues.' The bottom lip is 'Vintage.' Can you spot a noticeable difference? Me neither.

NYX 'Vintage': $7.00

ABH 'Trust Issues': $20.00

3. L'Oreal eyeshadow in 'Iced Latte' for Stila's 'Kitten' eyeshadow

Stila's 'Kitten' eyeshadow is perfect for every day eye wear. This L'Oreal eyeshadow is the perfect dupe for it. You won't be able to tell the difference!

L'Oreal 'Iced Latte': $7.00

Stila's 'Kitten': $18.00

4. L'Oreal True Match blush in 'Baby Blossom' for Benefit's Luminizer in 'Dandelion'

The 'Dandelion' luminizer is one of my favorite cheek products. L'areal True Match is the best drugstore dupe for it, and let me tell you -- it's a dang near perfect match. The packaging isn't as cute, but if it saves you money? Why not!

L'Oreal 'Baby Blossom': $10.95

Benefit 'Dandelion': $29.00

5. NYX Born to Glow liquid illuminator in Gleam for NARS illuminator in 'Orgasm'

This is a perfect dupe, and a must have for anyone who loves that glow-y illuminated look. This stuff is a steal!

NYX 'Born To Glow': $7.50

NARS 'Orgasm': $30.00

6. City Color 'White Gold' highlight mousse for Pat Mcgrath Labs highlighter in 'Golden'

Pat McGrath Labs' highlighters are to die for. While City Color provides the perfect color dupe, there are some differences -- you won't receive it in an adorable package filled with gold sequins, and you will miss out on the make up brush and Skin Fetish Balm. 'White Gold' is also a cream versus 'Golden' being a pressed powder. If you're like me, and are in awe of the glow this gives, but can't afford to dish out the cold hard cash for it...this is for you!

City Color 'White Gold': $5.99

Pat Mcgrath Labs 'Golden': $72.00

7. NYX 'Matte Bronzer' for NARS bronzer in 'Laguna'

'Laguna' is one of my favorite bronzers! It's matte, perfect for everyday use, and can be used for contouring. Unfortunately, it's a little on the pricier side. So, go with NYX 'Matte Bronzer' for a drugstore dupe!

NYX 'Matte Bronzer': $9.00

NARS 'Laguna': $30.00

8. Makeup Revolution's 'Lip Lava' for Too Faced's 'Melted'

Too Faced Definitely wins on the packaging, but with prices like these? Who cares. You can count me in.

Your dupe cheat sheet: Shockwave = Melted Violet, Forgiven = Melted Nude, Tremor = Melted Peony, Unleash = Melted Coral, and Firestorm = Melted Ruby.

'Lip Lava': $5.00

'Melted': $21.00

9. Elf dupes for NARS blush:

'Pink Passion' is a little less pigmented than 'Desire,' and 'Peachy Keen' is not quite as deep in tone as 'Luster,' but other than that -- these dupes are spot on.

Elf blushes: $3.00

NARS blushes: $30.00

10. NYX 'Photo-Loving Primer' for Smashbox's 'Photo Finish' Primer

The trick to long lasting make-up? Primer and a good setting spray.

NYX 'Photo-Loving Primer': $13.00

Smashbox 'Photo Finish': $36.00

11. L'Oreal Infallible 'Pro-Spray & Set' for Urban Decay 'All Nighter' make up setting spray

Speaking of setting spray, 'All Nighter' is one of the best out there. If you're looking for a cheaper option, this is it. I use this stuff every day!

L'Oreal Infallible 'Pro-Spray & Set': $13.79

Urban Decay 'All Nighter': $30

12. Rimmel London blush in 'Pink Sorbet' for Benefit's 'Coralista'

Coral-y blushes are my personal fav for achieving a pink cheek. Benefit is known for their cheek products, but if you're looking for a cheaper option, this is it!

Rimmel's 'Pink Sorbet': $4.00

Benefit's 'Coralista': $28.00

13. Elf Radiance Enhancer in 'Spotlight' for NARS illuminator in 'Copacabana'

You obviously do not get nearly as much product, and the Elf product has more of a pinky tone to it, but this stuff is a very close match for the price! (If you want something less pink, and want to spring a few extra dollars for a closer dupe, try NYX 'Born To Glow' liquid illuminator in the lighter shade! It's only $7.50 and a closer fit)

Elf 'Spotlight': $3.00

Nars 'Copacabana': $30.00

14. Colour Pop's 'Chilly Chili' for Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in 'Veronica'

I think the color swatches pretty much speak for themselves here! I am a huge Colour Pop fan. They have decent quality products for low end prices. Their color varieties are out of this world, too! If you ever are looking for a dupe, you can probably find one through them. You're welcome.

Colour Pop 'Chilly Chili': $6.00

ABH 'Veronica': $20.00

15. Elf's baked eyeshadow in 'Enchanted' for Becca X Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in 'Champagne Pop'

Now, to clarify, this is in no way a perfect dupe for this amazing product. Obviously, the consistency is far less creamy and smooth (it is a drugstore eyeshadow after all), but color wise? It's an almost perfect match. Don't be afraid to use products in the "wrong places."

Elf 'Enchanted': $3.00

Becca 'Champagne Pop': $38.00

16. Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lip in 'Rooch' for Kylie Matte liquid Lipstick in 'Leo'

If you are anything like me, you were extremely disappointed to find out that Kylie's Birthday Collection was only available for a limited time. If you missed out on the 'Leo' shade, Colour Pop's 'Rooch' is the perfect dupe! Not to mention, it's much cheaper.

Colour Pop 'Rooch': $6.00

Kylie's 'Leo': No Longer Available

17. Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lip in 'Chi' for Kylie's Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Dolce K'

Another Colour Pop steal! I told you this brand was amazing, and I wasn't kidding. This is the perfect dupe for one of my favorite Kylie lip shades. A must have in, in my humble opinion. Again, you won't receive the corresponding lip liner with this one, but you can probably find one that's pretty close and still be able to save a few bucks in the process.

Colour Pop 'Chi': $6.00

Kylie's 'Dolce K': $29.00

18. Maybelline Fit Me 'Matte And Poreless' for MAC 'Studio Fix' foundation

Seriously, this is my go-to for every day foundation. I am in love with this stuff. I actually had been using this foundation for over a year before I found out it was even considered a dupe for MAC 'Studio Fix.' A high quality find for a low price is always a win in my book!

Maybelline 'Matte and Poreless': $8.00

MAC 'Studio Fix': $30.00

19. NYX 'Radiant Finishing Powder' for Bobbi Brown Brightening Finish in 'Porcelain Pearl'

Bobbi Brown's version has a little more of a glow-y look when applied than NYX's version, but as you can see, they are pretty dang close. This dupe is definitely worth the investment.

NYX 'Radiant Finishing Powder': $8.99

Bobbi Brown 'Porcelain Pearl': $57.00

20. BH Cosmetics 'shaaanxo' palette for Kylie Jenner's 'Kyshadow' palette

There was some controversy over this one, but none-the-less it's nearly the perfect dupe. Not to mention, 'Kyshadow' is not an easy thing to get your hands on -- this is a much easier route.

BH Cosmetics 'shaaanxo': $14.50

Kylie Jenner's 'Kyshadow': $42.00

21. Milani's Baked Blush in 'Rose D' Oro' for MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in 'Cheeky Bronze'

I love Milani products when shopping the drug store make up aisles. Plus, I love the cute gold packaging, and actually really prefer it over the MAC plain black packaging. I suggest checking out their other products as well if you're an avid drugstore shopper for your beauty products.

Milani 'Rose D'Oro': $7.99

MAC 'Cheeky Bronze': $33.00

22. Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lips for Jeffree Star's Velour Liquid Lipsticks

Yet again, another Colour Pop steal for the win! Pictured above are a few examples, but there are many more! Including the more exotic shades of blues, purples, and greens. These liquid lipsticks are the bomb dot com, and are on this list so many times for a reason. There is a dupe for almost every high end lip product your little heart could desire.

Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lips:

Jeffree Star's Velour Liquid Lipsticks: $18.00

I love buying new make up, and I love saving money -- dupes are the best way to have the best of both worlds!

5 Reasons We Should Appreciate The People That Work In Retail, Food, And Janitorial Services

They deserve appreciation and respect


Now that it's a new year, it's time for new years resolutions, and I have one that everyone could get on board with. This year and every year after, appreciate the people that work in retail, food, and janitorial services. For me, I worked in both retail and food, and I've seen a lot. And I'm not attacking everyone here, I just want us all to be on the same page. Here are five things to remember coming into the new year.

1. They are human beings


Behind the uniform, the people in the uniform are only human. They are not perfect, and they will make mistakes. Remember, they are trying to do their best.

2. Some things are out of their control


They can't control everything. For example, the prices of things and what they offer in the store.

3. They are not stupid and uneducated


Actually, people that work in these areas are just the opposite. They are not stupid, dumb, or uneducated. So, please stop thinking that they are.

4. They are not lesser than you


Without retail, food, and janitorial services, there would no one to keep buildings clean and neat. There would be no one to check you out after you are done shopping. When you go out to eat, there would be no one to take your order nor make your food. Just because they work in retail, food, or janitorial services does not mean they are lesser than you. It takes a lot to work in these areas.

5. It does take time to make your food


The time that it takes to make your food depends on what you order, how much you order, how many workers are working, and how many customers there are at the same time you are there.

It does take a lot to work in retail, food, and janitorial services. This year is a good time to start appreciating and respecting people who work in those areas of employment. They do so much for people, and they do work hard. Most don't have set hours, and a lot of them work weekends. There are a lot of hours and labor that people log in every week. They are people like you and me. They are someone's sibling, child, parent, sister, brother...they have emotions. They like to have fun like you and me and they like to hang out with their family and friends. They like sports, music, art, theater, and so on. They have hobbies. Like everyone else, they deserve appreciation and respect. Treat others the way you would want to be treated.
