If you're a makeup junkie on a budget, you should know about all the best budget makeup dupes on the market. You might pine after those high-end, Instagram famous products, but many makeup dupes offer remarkably similar results at a fraction of the price.
Love the look of NARS Orgasm blush? There's a drugstore makeup that's just as good: Milani's Luminoso blush. Crushing on MAC's Ruby Woo lipstick? Swipe on Maybelline's Very Cherry instead. And that's just the tip of the beauty iceberg. From foundation to brow gel and everywhere in between, we've rounded up dupes for the best selling top-line makeup offerings.
Sure, some makeup is worth the splurge. But these tried and true favorites are just as good as the high-end makeup products.
Cover FX's Custom Cover Drops are the perfect way to give your foundation a boost, but the drops can get a little pricey at $44 each. The good news is Hard Candy has a dupe in their Glamoflauge Mix-In Pigment Drops, for a little over $8.
Stila's Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow series of liquid eyeshadows offer bold, glamorous pops of color. The eyeshadows come in 14 different shades for $24 each. ColourPop's Supernova Shadows come in five different shades that are very similar to Stila's, and cost $7 each.
Farsali's Jelly Beam highlighter looks downright magical, thanks to its unique consistency and over-the-top shine. It's $40, but still sells out basically everywhere. For a nearly-identical megawatt gleam for less, try Zoeva's Strobe Gel in Corona – Allure swears it offers similar results to Jelly Beam, and it costs just $16.
Like basically everything in the Fenty Beauty line, the Match Stix Shimmer Skinsticks became instant hits thanks to their flattering, glowy shades. Don't want to drop $25 on a highlighter? Reach for Bright Idea Illuminating Sticks from Nyx. They offer gorgeous illumination in a snap, and they're just $8.
