We can all appreciate a good bargain, especially when we’re getting something cheap that probably should be expensive. This is why beauty dupes are SO popular. Why spend $35 on one piece of makeup if you could spend $5 on something that works just as well AND looks exactly the same? Who wouldn’t want to do that? Makeup is so expensive, and since it’s something you need to buy fairly regularly, it’s good to save when you can.
But still, makeup dupes can be really great sometimes. We don’t always have the money to splurge on our favorite products, so why not get cheaper ones that work almost as well? Here are 6 amazing makeup beauty dupes that will make you want to get to the drugstore ASAP.
- Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on eye pencil Vs. Rimmel Scandal eye water proof Kohl eyeliner
$20 Vs. $4.99
I don't know why anyone could buy an eyeliner and pay $20 for it, when you can get the same effect for much less.
- Benefit Hoola Bronzer Vs. NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in Sunny.
$28 Vs. $2.99
Having a nice, matte, non-orange in a little hard to find in the drugstore. Hoola is great for bronzing and light contouring, and this NYC bronzer is so darn similar. The only thing, this specific bronzer is hard to find, so keep an eye out for it.
- MAC Satin Taupe eye shadow Vs. Wet 'N Wild single eye shadow in "Nutty".
$16 Vs. $0.99
Satin Taupe from MAC is one of those universally shadows that are flattering on everyone, but the Wet 'N Wild is actually the same, my only complain about the packaging being cheap, and the shadow breaks easily because of it, but it's only $0.99 so I will forgive them for it.
- Beauty Blender Vs. Real Technique Miracle complexion sponge.
$20.00 Vs. $5.99
Okay, I will say that this is not an exact dupe by any means. But I'm mentioning this for a cheaper alternative for the beauty blender.
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Vs. NYX Micro Brow Pencil.
$21 Vs. $9.99
The NYX Pencil is the closest I've found to the Anastasia Beverly Brow Wiz.
- Smashbox Photo finish foundation Primer Vs. Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore eraser Primer.
$ 36 Vs. $5.99
This is another example where I wonder why would you spend $36 on a primer. I honestly can't find a difference between the two.
