For those of you that are new to Beauty Products Are My Cardio when I started my Instagram I ran a series called Splurge VS Steal. Who doesn’t love a good beauty steal right??!!?? Call it splurge vs steal, drugstore dupes or just good ole dupes, being able to save money on a product that works just as well (sometimes better) than an expensive one is a win in my book.
So I thought it would be fun to move this series over to my blog. Its now called DUPE List! See my first Dupe List here.
So lets get started on DUPE LIST II!!!!
ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Shade Avenue: $6 – Shop Here
Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro in Shade 201: $38 – Shop Here
ColourPop is on my top lip and Armani is on the bottom. Can you see the difference? I couldn’t lol! Both of these lippies are a matte finish and extremely comfortable on the lips and lasted throughout the day.
Palladio Beauty Baked Bronzer in shade Pacific Tan: $10 Shop Here
Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Bronzer in shade Golden Days: $6 Shop Here
I’m just getting into Hourglass and picked up the travel size to try it out during a Nordstrom sale. I do enjoy this bronzer however I like it better mixed with other colors because it tends to be a bit orange on me. These two drugstore bronzers are FABULOUS! They offer the same type of look with that touch of shimmer not glitter to accentuate your cheekbones!
Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara: $5.99 Shop Here
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: $23.00 Shop Here
I saw this on Pinterest (find me here) as I love looking for new dupes! I also love and prefer drugstore mascaras over highend mascara but this one just did not do it for me in comparison. I love the way better than sex mascara performs but I get TONS of fall out so I was hoping for the Rimmel to be a fab dupe. Its nice do not get me wrong but I don’t know if its an exact dupe. I still wanted to add this because Mascara is not one size fits all and I have tons of blogger friends that love both of these!
Elf Matte Lip Crayons: $3 Shop Here
Fiona Stiles Matte Lip Crayons: $16 Shop Here
This is more of a same product type of dupe. What I own I do not have exact color dupes but both of these products are the same concept. A Matte Lip Crayon that offers great pigment in a matte finish. Fiona Stiles formula is SUPER CREAMY and I love that in a matte lip product. Elfs crayon is not near as creamy however it packs on pigment and for $3 they are worth it. I just use my MAC prep and prime lip before applying the Elf ones and it provides that extra moisture… I pretty much use the prep and prime before I apply anything now on my lips. I am obsessed but we will not get off topic LOL
NYX Matte Lipstick in Shade Pure Red: $5.99 Shop Here
MAC Matte Finish Lipstick in Shade Lady Danger $17 Shop Here
Most people know MAC is my jam. I love MAC products and have since I was 16. They just work for me period. I understand not everyone has this budget or may just choose not to buy certain brands. You will always find MAC dupes here bc I own a ton of MAC! Lady Danger is my ALL TIME FAVORITE Red Lip to rock! I have swatched 10 in my collection you can see here) During my red swatch party I discovered this dupe. Milani Matte Passion is the first one I found but this NYX in one is another fab dupe!!!
Elf Cosmetics Shimmer Lip Gloss in shade Believe: $1 at the Dollar Store (WINNING!!!)
Nars Lip Gloss in shade Greek Holiday: $26.00 Shop Here
As you can see this is not an exact color dupe but the concept of a bronze colored shimmer lip is dupe worthy in my opinion. I love Greek Holiday by Nars. I have bought it twice! Its the perfect nude shimmer lip gloss that works well with so many nude lipsticks for that extra pop. When I am at the dollar store I always go to the makeup section and mine carries a huge section of Elf so when I saw this I thought it was so pretty and grabbed it. How can I not for a $1! Got home and the light bulb went off. On the lips like I said its the same concept but you can see the elf is lighter but I felt this was dupe list worthy!!!!!
Loreal Magic Lumi Primer: $12.99 Shop Here
BECCA Backlight Priming Filter: $38.00 Shop Here
If you want to glow on a budget look no further!!! This loreal lumi primer does just that! This also is a fab dupe for MAC Storbe Cream (original color) as it has a pink tone to it. The BECCA primer does not have a pink undertone however both give you that glow from within look.
I truly hope you enjoy this series!! What is your favorite dupe find? What dupes would you like to see? Let me know in the comments below!
