If you love makeup, you can’t help but buy some of the latest makeup products. If something is hyped and branded as a “cult fave,” you just have to have it. However, it also hurts your savings. Not all makeup products are affordable. Some of the most popular ones are pricey. If you want to get the same makeup product as the ones that are trending but you don’t have the budget, find makeup dupes instead. A lot of makeup products that are available have almost the same formulation and effect just like the expensive ones. Below, you can see 10 pocket-friendly makeup dupes.
If you want a concealer like the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer costing $30 at Barney’s New York but you don’t have the budget, you can try the Wet n’ Wild Photo Focus Concealer for only $3.99 at ULTA. You save $26.01.
The Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter is one of the most popular highlighter that most beauty enthusiasts swear by. However, it’s quite pricey – it’s priced at $30 at Nordstrom. If you don’t have the budget for it, you can try the Forever 21 Wet n’ Wild Megaglo Makeup Highlight Stick for only $4 at Forever 21.
Give your cheeks an extra color for less with the Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso for only $6.79 at Target instead of the Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush, which is $30 at Nordstrom. You can save a total of $23.21.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit costs $40 at Macy’s. If you want a cheaper makeup product that is identical to it, you can purchase the NYX Professional Makeup Highlight and Contour Pro Palette for $25 at Walgreens.
Try the e.l.f. Brow Pencil for $3 at Old Navy instead of the Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow + Voluminizing Eyebrow Gel, $24 at Revolve. You’ll be able to save $21.
MAC Cosmetic’s Ruby Woo is one of its most popular iconic lipstick shades. However, it could be heavy on the budget because it costs $18.50 at ULTA. If you love the shade but you don’t have the budget for it, try Colourpop’s Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Creeper for only $6.50 at ULTA.
These affordable makeup dupes won’t break the bank. They’re cheaper than the original ones but have the same effect and quality.
