Hi lovelies! It's that time again for your most-requested post series, drugstore dupes! For those of you that don't know about the wonderful world of drugstore dupes, they are essentially a cheaper and drugstore-brand duplicate of a more high-end product. So the bottom line is, I'm about to save you a boatload of money. Money that you can use to buy
These liners are both amazing for those mornings when you aren't looking so fresh and wide-awake. The only noticeable difference between the two is that Rimmel's pencil is slightly more smooth gliding on, which is perfect for the water line!
The Original: Tarte EmphasEYES Inner Rim Brightener ($19)
Drugstore Dupe: Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Nude ($4.50)
While the prices of these two lipsticks are quite different, the color is almost identical! There is a slight difference in finish between the two, but both pack a super pigmented punch.
The Original: MAC Lipstick in Candy Yum Yum ($16)
Drugstore Dupe: Maybelline Vivids Lipstick in Fuchsia Flash ($6)
Both of these powders were designed to mimic the effects of a Photoshopped "soft-focus" in real life. While I have to admit Make Up Forever's powder does wonders like no other can, e.l.f.'s dupe certainly comes close when it comes to blurring imperfections.
The Original: Make Up Forever HD Powder ($34)
Drugstore Dupe: e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder ($6)
The packaging on these two is almost identical, as is the product inside. The only difference I've noticed is that L'Oreal's liner has a slightly stiffer brush that makes it easier to apply, whereas Lancome's is more like a paintbrush (which makes things harder for liquid liner newbies).
The Original: Lancome Artliner Liquid Eyeliner Pen ($30)
Drugstore Dupe: L’Oreal Lineur Intense ($9)
So you guys should know by now what a huge fan of highlighters I am, and I love both of these products dearly. If you're new to the world of highlighting and contouring, e.l.f.'s version is a great alternative to create that glow-y skin look.The Original: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade ($32)
Drugstore Dupe: e.l.f Baked Blush in Pinktastic ($4)
