If you’re a makeup lover, chances are that you love splurging on high-end products whenever you get the chance. The problem is, once you “hit pan” on your favourite bronzer, you’re tempted to walk into Sephora and repurchase it at its crazy expensive price again. In an attempt to save your wallet from any more pain, keep reading to find out our ten favourite high-end products and their drugstore dupes that you need to get your hands on:
Both of these primers are lightweight, non-greasy, and smoothing. They blur imperfections for a flawless base and can be worn under makeup or alone for a luminous finish.
These $28 and $11 retractable brow pencils both feature an ultra-fine tip that will not only define your brows, but will last ALL day. Formulated with smudge-proof properties, these pencils make it easy to create full, natural-looking brows that stay “on fleek.”
Pro Tip: Opt for light, small strokes when filling in your brows to create a natural, and hair-like effect.
Medium to full coverage, buildable, extremely lightweight AND long lasting … need I go on?
Both of these mascaras provide a voluminous, wide-eyed look that enhances your natural lashes. Both these products feature a similar curved brush, both filled with tiny bristles and a thick formula. These award-winning mascaras have been praised by the masses and although they are both fabulous in their own right … some might even say the $10 option ranks higher.
I know what you’re thinking. The infamous Tarte Shape Tape can’t be beaten. Well, think again. This e.l.f concealer priced at only $5 will make your jaw drop. The creamy formula doesn’t crease and provides full coverage that lasts all day.
Pigmented, smudge-proof, lasts all day, and features a fine tip for application – that’s all you need in a go-to liner, right?
I know, I know. CHANEL is irreplaceable. But if you’re not willing to pay the price, this Sonia Kashuk bronzer comes in a close second. With its creamy formula, the dupe bronzer blends well and provides a similar shade to its designer counterpart.
A powder vs. cream highlighter – these highlighters may be applied and worn slightly different, BUT if you’re looking for a similar soft gold shade and a buildable product that will make you GLOW – look no further.
Both of these warm coral shades are easily buildable, provide a smooth application, and are extremely pigmented.
Get a sunkissed look with cult-fav, HOOLA Bronzer, or opt for the $3 drugstore dupe by NYC. Buildable, smooth, and easy to apply, both of these bronzers will bring the perfect amount of warmth to your look.
