Makeup dupes are one of the things I seek out more often than anything these days! I am sure I speak for plenty of ladies when I say that new makeup can change our entire outlook on things. There is just something about getting home and trying out those new products that make us feel like a kid on Christmas morning. The drawback is, high end makeup keeps getting more and more expensive. While I love a good Sephora or Ulta shopping spree, we all know that saving money is a BIG deal. These makeup dupes will give you a great makeover at a way cheaper price!
Makeup Dupes – PRIMER
One of the most popular primers out there, the POREfessional by Benefit, is a great product but at a steep price of $40.00 while the equally effective Baby Skin by Maybelline will only set you back about $5.00. This is one of my top makeup dupes!
Makeup Dupes – FOUNDATION
Foundation is a staple for so many ladies but it doesn’t have to cost a fortune! The Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation is an incredible product but at a way over the top price of $60.00 which is why I was thrilled to find this Rimmel Stay Mattee Foundation which provides the exact same coverage and blendability at a WAY better price of just $4.75. The ultimate makeup dupes are definitely foundation!
The Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation is another well known and well loved foundation. It will cost you around $42.00 whereas the NYX Invincible is a well-known makeup dupe for this, providing the same incredible coverage, for just $12.00.
Makeup Dupes – CONCEALER
The NARS Radiant Cream Concealer is definitely a miracle worker but at $38.00, we are so hoping to have found that the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer does the job just as well for only $5.29! As far as makeup dupes go, this is one of the absolute best ones.
Makeup Dupes – POWDER
I’ll admit, I have always been a lover of the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder ($36.00) so I was hesitant about the NYX Professional Mineral Powder ($7.49) but was blown away to find I loved it even more! Makeup dupes are often our way of saving money but it’s pretty rare to find a dupe we like even more!
Makeup Dupes – BRONZER
If you can sacrifice the AMAZING smell of the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer ($35.00) and deal with a more subtle summery smell, then the Rimmel Natural Bronzer is a great option for you, at just $4.50! One of the most closely matched colors in makeup dupes I have found.
Makeup Dupes – BLUSH
Makeup Dupes – EYESHADOW
Let’s face it, NAKED pallettes by Urban Decay are pricey but we splurge for the best! Until now! The Urban Decay Naked Palette ($60.00) has an EXACT dupe. The NYC Lovatics by Demi is an amazing deal for just $10.82!
Makeup Dupes – BROW PENCIL
Makeup Dupes – LIPSTICK
If you’re anything like me, watching makeup tutorials is a favorite past time. I find myself jotting down the products they use so that I can purchase them later. Then, once I actually look at the prices, I am typically less than thrilled to find my shopping list totals over $300-$400.
Enter, the makeup dupes! I absolutely love searching out items that are as similar as possible and adding them to my arsenal of makeup! Hopefully this list of makeup dupes is helpful for you in finding the products you love at a price you can afford!!
