5 Insanely Good Makeup Dupes (Get The Look For Less!)

Categories : Makeup

You know what we love more than amazing makeup? Amazing and cheap makeup. We scoured makeup reviews to find the best makeup dupes. These products don’t just have the same color or packaging – they also work just as well, and for half the price.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Dupe

This mascara got loads of positive makeup reviews for making even the thinnest, shortest lashes look extra thick and flirty. Well guess what – so can L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise. Its wand has over 200 bristles to catch every lash. Lengthens, volumizes and gives you a full fringe effect with just one coat.

Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade Dupe

Oh we love you, DipBrow: no one can define and shape brows the way you do. But we have to be honest — the NYX Tame & Frame Brow Pomade comes pretty darn close. It’s smudge proof, water proof and lasts in sticky, humid Singapore weather.  Comes in a lot of shades, too so you can find the one that looks most natural. (Heck, at its price, you can even buy two.)

Nars Blush Orgasm Dupes (yeah, we found a lot!)

Everyone loves this universally flattering shade. It’s peachy-pink and when you buff it in you look like, well, you’ve just had… a really good workout (wink). But if you can’t bring yourself to spend that much on blush (Nars is a great brand but it doesn’t come cheap) try Pixi Glow in Rome Rose, E.L.F. Cosmetics Blush in Candid Coral, Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso, or Wet n’ Wild in Pearlescent Pink.

Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder Dupe

We are huge fans of finishing powder – they  set foundation but don’t hide your skin with another layer of color. You still have that natural skin texture so you don’t look like you’re wearing makeup.

The Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish has always been like the BMW of finishing powders: it lasts all day and registers beautifully on camera. You can get a similar effect with Maybelline Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Powder. You may need to retouch more often, but it does the job of making your face look fresh and flawless.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Dupe

Makeup reviews called this foundation  the “Insta-Filter” because of how it gave such a velvety, radiant and luminous finish. But ooooh, that price tag hurts! Get a similar effect with the L’oreal Paris Lumi foundation. It’s got the same finish but is a bit heavier, so apply it with a damp sponge so you get sheerer layers.
