Makeup Dupes

The less you spend on makeup the more you get to spend on clothes (hooray!). We have searched the world (ok maybe the local Walgreens) over for the best makeup dupes and we want to share them with you!

Just so we’re all clear…. we love makeup. We love how good makeup feels on your skin. We love how good makeup applies and love how long it lasts. But sometimes good makeup isn’t defined by the price on the box. In fact, these products below are cheap and JUST as good as their more expensive counterparts. We know – we’ve used both! So get these items, try them out, and tell us what you think in the comments below. We promise you won’t be disappointed.


These are the items that we use daily. Total price = $66.43. Total price for their more expensive counterparts = $369.50.

1. Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream {$9.99} -Compared toSmashbox Camera Ready BB Cream {$39}(We use Porefesional by Benefit as a primer and are ob-sessed with it then use this BB cream pretty much every day.
