Top beauty dupes:
At one point or another, we all splurge on an incredible beauty product that we cannot live without. These “amazing” products that we add to our carts add up awfully quick inside a store like Sephora. We drop $60 on a new eyeshadow pallet without batting an eye.
But what if we could get a similar product, that performs just as good, if not better, for a fraction of the cost. Would you choose the latter? Of course you would! Anyone would be foolish not to.
I have spent several weeks testing alternative products and comparing them to high End products, to save both you and I some extra cash. Let me tell you, I found some marvelous items that I will continue to purchase on a regular basis, instead of the high end items I would usually buy.
Beauty Blender $28 vs Real Techniques sponge $11
I am a Beauty Blender gal through and through, but I decided to give the Real Techniques sponge a go after seeing it at my local Walmart for $11. I would certainly recommend using the alternative for under half the price. It applied my foundation smoothly, and didn’t soak up all of my foundation at once.
Benefit They’re Real mascara $32 vs L’Oréal Voluminous original mascara $9.99
Let me start off my saying that any L’Oréal is great. While I am more of a Maybelline girl, I love L’Oréal mascara. The wand is just the right size and mascara is applied in even coats. No clumping with this bad boy, just voluminous lashes.
Tarte Shape Tape concealer $35 vs Revolution Beauty concealer $11
The similarities in these concealers amazed me. Both are a full coverage concealer and stands strong for the entire day. However, at 1/3 of the cost, I would suggest trying the Revolution Beauty Dupe.
Lancome Cushion Foundation $47 vs Maybelline Cushion Foundation $18
This cushion compact from Maybelline isn’t just a great dupe for luxury versions; it’s straight up better in my opinion. This formula is dewy, yet full coverage that evens out your complexion in a few light pats. Maybelline is more full coverage, where as Lancome is a little more thinner and watery.
MAC Highlighter vs e.l.f highlighter $4
E.L.F products in my opinion are one of the most underrated beauty lines that I have come across. Their products perform extremely well while at a price point less than a morning coffee. This highlighter has the same gold flakes that the MAC highlighter has. It goes on easily with a brush and blends well.
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads vs Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads
I have been using the Nip+Fab glycolic pads for several months now. They are high quality as well as extremely affordable at $10 per 60 pads. Try these out. You wont be disappointed.
I hope these Dupes work out as good for you as they did for me, and helps you save the extra cash for a must have splurge item.
