You can spend easily $300 on makeup, but why would you do that when you can spend half of that while using products that are almost exact duplicates of the high-end ones. Here are 10 of my favorites dupes that you can try too!
1. Laura Mercier vs Maybelline Finishing Powder
These are both great products, but $38 is a lot for just one product when they both give you such a great matte, clean look.
2. Too Faced HANGOVER vs e.l.f Dewy Setting Mist
Too Faced is such an awesome brand with high-quality products, but this e.l.f setting spray does the job just the same and provides such an affordable cost.
3. Too Faced vs L'oreal Mascara
I love both of these mascaras so much. They are so similar, but surprisingly I've come to like the L'oreal one better and it's now the only mascara I will buy!
4. Tarte Shape Tape vs Makeup Revolution Concealer
Tarte shape tape is so amazing, but so is the makeup revolution concealer. They work so similarly and the price difference is so great!
5. Anastasia Beverly Hills vs Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Palette
I personally wouldn't use the colors in this palette all year round so spending $42 on it just isn't worth it. Although, spending $5 sounds like a deal.
6. Benefit Pore Professional vs Maybelline Baby Skin Primer
I love the Benefit primer, but $30 for a small tube isn't necessarily worth it. The Maybelline primer works the same but can be a little oily compared to the Benefit one. Although, for the price, I'd go for the Maybelline one.
7. Kat Von D vs Colourpop Liquid lipstick
I'm a big fan of Kat Von D liquid lipstick, but when there are so many great drugstore liquid lipsticks it's not worth it to pay over $10 on a liquid lipstick.
8. NYX vs Urban Decay Setting Spray
I love both of these so much. Although, I do find myself struggling not to spend the $32 only because I find that it helps so much more with my oily skin, but the NYX one is also so great and does work very similarly.
9. Wet N Wild vs Marc Jacobs Highlighter
Highlighter is one of my favorite makeup products so I've tried a lot of different brands, but I do find the Wet N Wild one to be one of the best drugstore highlighters.
10. Benefit vs NYX brow pencil
Spending $24 on a brow pencil is a little crazy, especially when you can get almost the exact same one for $10. I look NYX. I feel the overall brand does a great job and does the deed just as well!
There is no reason to be spending over $100 on makeup when there are so many great drugstore brands like Maybelline, NYX, Wet N Wild, Makeup Revolution and many more. I hope this article gives you an idea of what you will be buying next time you run out of a product!
