Loopidity DUPE! Swoopdity Doop.. (or whatever Kanye is saying in that song)
I love the saying “you get what you pay for” but when it comes to cosmetics,that’s not always the case. Majority of the time we pay for the name&cute packaging. I was out of town and forgot my favorite ABH brow necessities. You can imagine my hysteria so I had to grab something quick at CVS! That moment of desperation ended up saving me money in the long run because I haven’t went back to high end brow products since. Milani’s brow fix is the best $7 I’ve ever spent and it’s lasted me so long. The color payoff is great and it’s just as blendable as ABH.
Everyone’s holy grail setting powder is Laura Mercier.I don’t know if every YouTuber in the world made a pact to say that there’s nothing better,but there definitely is! I’ve tried high end and drugstore and the RCMA setting powder is still my favorite. It conceals my pores (which is major for me), I can bake a little bit and it won’t make me look cakey. It keeps my makeup set all day, not to mention it’s only $10!
Moving on to overly priced liquid highlighters. Do you remember when Cover FX came out with their liquid highlighters? OMG for months that’s all people would talk about. I went in,swatched it,but couldn’t commit. I searched high and low before finding Makeup Revolutions liquid highlighter drops. $44 or $9? You do the math 😂
We know the Kardashians rule the internet but they don’t have to rule your bank account too! KKW and Kylie Cosmetic’s nudes can easily be swapped for NYX cosmetics soft matte creams. “Cairo” is my favorite peachy nude and it’s lasts longer than both KKW and the Kylie lipsticks.$49 or $5.99 🤷🏼♀️? It’s an easy decision!
Onto blush, MAC’s “peaches” blush and their mineralize blushes are a summer staple 😩 they’re beautiful but if you don’t feel like splurging Milani’s Baked Blushes are only $7.99 and there’s so many shades that it’s easy to find a dupe for your MAC blushes. Luminoso and their baked blush in Soleil are my favorites.
Just thought I’d share a few of my favorite dupes. I know there’s some things that can’t be compromised and we have to splurge, but any chance I get to save a little, that’s what I’m doing so I hope this helps.Love!Love! Love yall!
