No matter how many good reviews you might read of a product, sometimes you can’t bring yourself to spend $40 on an eye cream. Beauty products can range from dirt to cheap to mind-blowing expensive, which makes you wonder: is there really that much of a difference? Keeping up with the ever-changing beauty industry is tough for both your mind and your wallet.
Between makeup, skincare, hair, and everything in between- that’s enough to dry out your wallet if you buy the high-end version of everything. Well, we’re here to tell you that you can still look fabulous without breaking the bank. These are dupes for your favorite luxury beauty products that will do just as good of a job:
High End: Nars Orgasm Blush ($40)
Dupe: Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso ($8)
For literally a fraction of the price, you still get that peachy pink blush color without having to spend so much. Plus, the packaging is very similar, so you’re basically getting the same amount of product.
High End: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer ($30)
Dupe: Maybelline Fit Me Concealer ($6.49)
You can find this Nars concealer dupe at basically any drug store, and it does the same job. The Nars Creamy Concealer is known for its flawless stretch and coverage. But if you’re looking to save a pretty penny, try out the Maybelline concealer, and you might find it works the same.
High End: Mario Badescu Witch Hazel & Rosewater Toner ($14)
Dupe: Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner ($7)
You can get a witch hazel toner that works the same at exactly half the price. Who would give that up?
High End: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($25)
Dupe: L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara ($9.99)
The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is pretty well known for being one of the best mascaras out there. But I’ve tried out both of these brands and well, the L’Oreal one delivered pretty similar results at a fraction of the cost.
High End: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder ($38)
Dupe: NYX Cosmetics Studio Finishing Translucent Finish ($9.99)
Translucent powders are a must-have when it comes to keeping your makeup lasting all day long, but $38 for a setting powder seems a bit much. The NYX translucent finish powder is much cheaper and does the trick.
High End: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner ($20)
Dupe: Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner (7.99)
If you’re going for that dramatic eyeliner look like Kat Von D always has but don’t want to spend $20, the Maybelline dupe is an excellent alliterative choice.
