5 Drugstore Dupes of High End Beauty Products – Wanna Splurge or Save?
Confused if the beauty product you are buying is worth the price or not?
Whether you be able to find a cheaper option with the same quality or not, there is always a close contender that can save you from splurging your hard earned money. One that can be the next best version for it and can also become your favourite ……
Here are 5 Drugstore finds that can be your best beauty buddies…
Smashbox’s Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer is one of the best make up primer in the market. It is favoured for its smooth finish that fills in pores and makes makeup look seamless and truly extraordinary. And yes is expensive. However, we found a contender in NYX with 1/3rd the price and close results. NYX Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer is a great buy and keeps makeup in place all day long. Its non-greasy and a great bargain.
Favourite among the beauty gurus all around the globe, YSL Touche Eclat Concealer comes with $40 price tag. It is the highest selling luxury concealer. It dark circles and fine lines disappear. Works like a magic wand.But if you are looking for a cheaper version, look no further than The Body Shop concealer in 04, which is more shimmery and lilac-based.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is a cult classic, its practically weightless in texture and as the name suggest gives silky smooth finish. This oil-free foundation’s flawless finish doesn’t make your face look cakey even after wearing for the whole day. However, L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Makeup can easy be its drugstore counterpart – with lightweight, oil-free and breathable formula with extra benefit of SPF.
Another cult favourite and a must have for every beauty junkie – Nars Blush in Orgasm is a warm pink blush that makes for natural yet glamorous look. Ask any beauty junkie to recommend a good blush, and more often than not she will tell you to try Nars Blush in Orgasm. However, Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink is a pretty perfect drugstore dupe for NARS Orgasm with an appealing price tag. While it doesn’t last as long as NARS, it still has good staying power and is pretty pigmented. One really can’t beat it for the price.
Liner are a must have for everyday use, and Pen liner makes the application oh so easy. These two glides on easily and smoothly. The Lancôme has more of a spongy tip, whereas the Maybelline Colossal Liner has 0.4mm flexi tip giving flawless precision, its quick drying and long lasting than Lancome one.
Splurge or Save is at the end of the day your choice.
