Makeup Dupes!

When buying makeup, things can get pricey! Let's be honest though, there is nothing quite like your favorite mascara, even if you have to shell out $30 per tube. We all know that a $30 foundation will have longer wear and be better for your skin than an $8 one. But there are some hidden gems out there that are really just as good as the high end products. Here are some high end items that you can truly get a similar quality, for less money.

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick → NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick

These two are almost identical. I would say that Too Faced probably has longer wear, but only a little bit. They are a close match as far as consistency, look and feel. However NYX you apply like a gloss with a doe foot applicator wand, and the Too Faced is applied using a doe foot applicator squeeze tube. Too Faced's version rings in at $21 while the NYX version is only $6.99

e  (compared to Guerlain's $30) it is a steal!

Guerlain Maxilash Intense Volumizing Mascara → Revlon 3D PhotoReady Mascara

Just look at the actual wands. Now granted in the picture the Revlon Mascara wand has been used and has mascara on it while the Guerlain does not, but they are almost identical! The Revlon formula is similar as well and for only $8.79 (compared to Guerlain's $30) it is a steal!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz → NYX Micro Brow Pencil

The brow wiz pencil is super popular with the beauty vloggers because it allows you to get small hair like strokes that look natural. In addition to it's fine (but sturdy) pencil this comes with a brow spoolie on the other end to help you tame those brows and blend your makeup in for the perfect application. ABH's Brow Wiz is amazing at $21 but the NYX counterpart has the same features for only $9.99

Bliss Fabulous Makeup Melt Gel-to-Oil Cleanser → Mary Kay Eye Makeup Remover 

These are a little different honestly. The Bliss product is an actual gel that you massage into your eye makeup or face and then remove with water. The Mary Kay product you shake, pour a little onto a cotton ball, cotton round or piece of tissue paper, and then you wipe. They have a different consistency. However they both remove eye make wonderfully. They are the best two makeup removers I have ever used. The bliss product is $28 however, while the Mary Kay is only $15!
