10 Of The Best Drugstore Make-up Dupes That Your Wallet Will Be Thanking You For

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 

Pinterest

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

Pinterest

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 ​

Pinterest

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 

Pinterest

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 Pro​fessional vs Maybelline Baby Skin Primer

Pinterest

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 

Pinterest

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 

Pinterest

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 

Pinterest

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 

Pinterest

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!

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Be careful what you do and post

Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.
