The Best Dupes Of Your Favorite Products For The Girl On A Budget
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.
