Today let’s talk dupes. Now all self-respecting makeup addicts, myself included, will have lusted after the highest of high-end brands for years at a time before ever purchasing a single product. Quite frankly, if I’m going to spend $28.00 on a highlighter it better be the most amazing highlighter this world has ever seen. Unfortunately, for us, the reality is that while some high-end products are worth the money, providing coverage in all the right places, allowing us to feel like a million dollars for a mere fifty, they are never going to make us a whole new version of ourselves. In the meantime, we can, of course, create a rather satisfying optical illusion to trick people into seeing something a little closer to this idealistic version. So here are a few products that won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
1.Anastasia Beverly Hills VS Wet N Wild
2.Artis VS Cailyn Cosmetics
3.Jeffree Star Androgyny VS ColourPop stingRaye
4.Benefit VS NYX
5.NARS VS ELF
6.NARS VS Sleek
7.MAC VS Wet N Wild
8.MAC VS Revlon
9.NARS VS L’oreal
10.Urban Decay VS Revlon
11.Clinique VS Revlon
Here’s hoping that the rise of the drugstore dupes continue in 2016 and all of us broke beauty addicts will no longer feel limited in our choices at the beauty counter.
What are your favorite dupes?
