One of the most common questions I get in real life and online when it comes to beauty is “what’s equally good if I forget my pricey makeup?” It got me thinking recently. I’ve shared many affordable and luxury items alike, but never as a mirror image. Whether you forgot your mascara and realized at the airport, can’t afford luxury brands, or are trying to squeak by until next payday, your lifeboat has arrived. Meet your beauty dupes: drugstore vs. luxury, head to head.
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara vs. Revlon Volu-mazing Mascara
Fenty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation vs. Maybelline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation
Glossier Super Bounce vs. The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Makeup Forever Ultra HD Powder vs. E.L.F. Perfect Finish HD Powder
Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser vs. Aveeno Positively Radiant Micellar Gel Cleanser
Crazy, right? Many of these are 80% cheaper than the luxury/midgrade alternative. What were the most mindblowing beauty dupes: drugstore vs. luxury comparisons to you? I want to hear from you! On that note, this is certainly not the end all be all list. This will be an ongoing series, that YOU have a say in. Not seeing a type of product you wish you knew a more affordable dupe for? I’ll do the legwork for you. Tell me in the comments below, or DM me on social media, wherever you get your UNOFFICIAL content!
