I have a confession: I love makeup. However, it can be pretty pricey, especially when it comes to more luxury brands. Luckily enough, dupes exist. Many people argue that brands who make dupes are stealing ideas from the original brand. Consider this: if Brand A can make the exact same product as Brand B with the same formula and a lower price, why wouldn't you buy from Brand A. When you think of it like this, it makes you wonder if you're being taken advantage of by luxury cosmetics brands.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette
When I first saw this stunning palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills, I instantly knew I had to have it. Unfortunately, I can't drop $42 on a palette like that. However, I didn't have to thanks to cosmetics brand Bad Habit. Bad Habit, exclusively sold on Hush, makes dupes for several palettes including Soft Glam. Both brands create cruelty-free products with phenomenal formulas. However, you can grab the dupe, Arabesque, on Hush for only $16!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette
Beauty lovers everywhere were so excited when Subculture was released by Anastasia Beverly Hills on July 25th, 2017. However, most consumers were disappointed.

The dupe palette supposedly works better than the original and can be bought on Hush for $12.
