Makeup Dupes: What to Save on

Who doesn’t love to save money?! When it comes to makeup, there are several things to splurge on. Although it is fun to indulge in high end makeup, sometimes the cheap stuff is just as good! Continue to read about my tried and true, favorite makeup dupes.



ESSENCE Brighten Up! Banana Powder vs. KKW Beauty BRIGHTENING POWDER
$4.99 vs. $18

I have been dying to try the KKW Beauty Brightening Powder, but that all changed when I purchased the Essence Brighten Up Banana Powder. According to YouTubers these products are so much alike. Why not save some coin and purchase the Essence powder instead! 



MAKEUP REVOLUTION Conceal & Define Full Coverage Conceal & Contour vs. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
$7 vs. $27

I have been using Tarte Shape Tape for a really long time, so when I heard that the new Makeup Revolution was a dupe I had to try it. After using the Makeup Revolution concealer I can confidently say I like it even better that the Tarte Shape Tape. There is no point in buying an expensive concealer when there are some cheaper ones with even better quality!

NYX Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palettes

NYX eyeshadow pallets are really amazing. While they retail at $18 which isn’t considered “cheap,” $18 is a lot cheaper than a lot of the eyeshadow palettes on the market. Not only are they really great quality but they have a great color selection that can dupe most any eyeshadow pallet. Here are my favorite dupes using NYX eyeshadow!


 Sugar High for Too Faced Peachy Mattes
$18 vs. $45 

Brights Ultimate for Huda Beauty Obsessions Electric 
$18 vs. $27

Warm Neutrals for Kylie Jenner Bronze Extended 
$18 vs. $45




L’ORÉALVoluminous Lash Paradise Mascara vs. TOO FACED Better Than Sex Mascara
$10 vs. $24 

Better Than Sex made a huge impression on the beauty community, but it’s safe to say Lash Paradise made an equality large if not greater impression than Better Than Sex. In my opinion these two mascaras are essentially the same in quality, packaging, and formula. The only real difference which is the price.
