There are so many raved about makeup products out on the market today, but we don’t all have the money to dish out on all high end products. Fortunately, we don’t have to, with amazing, affordable makeup dupes like these for some of the most popular cosmetics!
Sonia Kashuk Gel Liner, dupe for ABH Dipbrow Pomade
Although marketed as a gel pot eyeliner, this product by Sonia Kashuk performs as a perfect dupe for Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade. Dipbrow has been applauded as a ground-breaking brow product. It glides on with an angled eyebrow brush, adhering to both eyebrow hairs and the skin, making it perfect for those with very thin or sparse brows. The Sonia Kashuk gel liner is almost identical, and is available at Target for $8.99, compared to Dipbrow which retails at $18.00.
Milani Luminoso Blush, dupe for Nars Orgasm Blush
Nars Orgasm is a renowned cult favorite in the world of makeup. It has a unique sheen which adds life and dimension to any complexion, and the color works universally with most skin tones. Milani blush in Luminoso is a great alternative. The color adds warmth to the face and has a very similar finish to the ever popular Nars Blush. You can find the Milani blush at several drugstores for just $7.99, compared to Nars Orgasm which retails at $30.00.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Liner in Nude, dupe for Eye Bright by Benefit
Eye Bright by Benefit Cosmetics is a bright salmon-nude color that can be used to neutralize and brighten the eyes for a “wide awake” appearance. This pencil can be applied to the inner corner of the eyes and blended, or can be applied to the waterline. This nude pencil by Rimmel performs perhaps even better than Eye Bright, as it has a very natural appearance and better staying power, as it is waterproof and won’t fade away if your eyes water. Eye Bright retails at $20.00, but you can pick up the Rimmel pencil at your local drugstore for just $4.49.
elf HD Setting Powder, dupe for HD Microfinish Powder by Makeup Forever
While HD Microfinish Powder by MUFE has been considered the must-have translucent finishing powder for years by many makeup addicts, but this dupe by elf is a perfect dupe and performs just as well, if not better. Both powders are superb at controlling oil while setting your makeup to last all day, without being visible on the skin. The difference is that the MUFE Powder will cost you $34.00, and the elf powder is a steal at just $6.00.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, dupe for Stila Liquid Lipstick
The Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick is a popular matte lip product, acting as highly pigmented lip color that won’t fade or smudge throughout the day. The Soft Matte Lip Creams by NYX are a perfect dupe. They apply the same way and wear just as long, and if that’s not enough for you consider the color selection; the Stila lipstick comes in ten different shades, while NYX now offers twenty-two. You can buy the Stila lipstick for $22.00, or give NYX a chance for just $6.00 each.
