It can be difficult finding the perfect mascara. Some just don’t make your lashes look as great as they should. A favorite for makeup lovers is the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. However, if you don’t want to spend over $20 on a mascara you could try L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise. You get beautiful lashes for only $9.99.

5. Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Dupe

The Urban Decay Naked Heat palette is a must-have for anyone who loves makeup. With that said many of us don’t have $54 to spend on it. So, why not choose an alternative instead. The Revolution Re-Loaded Iconic Fever palette has very similar colors that allows you to create the same amazing eye makeup that you would with the Urban Decay palette.

6. Kylie Cosmetics Kristen Dupe

Kylie Cosmetics has brought out some stunning beauty products. One of the favorites is the Kristen liquid lipstick. If you love the shade but don’t have a lot of cash to spare you could try one of these alternatives. To save $9, try the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Kathryn or to save a large $23 try Colorpop lipstick in Bumble.

7. GlamGlow Supermud Mask Dupe

It is very important to look after your skin so you can look your best with or without makeup. A skincare product everyone is talking about is the GlamGlow Supermud Mask. It is a facial treatment that gets rid of impurities and helps with breakouts. A much cheaper alternative to this is the Lacura Charcoal Clearing Mudmask. You still get radiant skin but you can save a massive $51!

8. Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer Dupe

Get summer ready with bronzer. There are so many bronzers on the market but one of the best is the Benefit Hoola Bronzer. If you don’t want to spend nearly $30 though, you can still get a beautiful sun-kissed look with the Wet N Wild Contouring Palette Dulce De Leche.

9. Kylie Cosmetics The Purple Palette Dupe

Add a pop of purple to your makeup bag with the Face Candy Vice palette. It is full of stunning purple shades, dark tones and glitter shadows. Not only is this palette super cute but it is also a great dupe for the Kylie Cosmetics Purple palette. You can still get vibrant eye makeup but save $30.

10. Huda Beauty Foundation Dupe

Foundation is a must-have product for flawless looking skin and makeup. A foundation that many love is Huda Beauty foundation. However, it does come with a $40 price tag which can seem a bit pricey especially if you aren’t sure on shade and if you will like the product. So, why not try Maybelline foundation as an alternative. You can try out a new foundation for just over $10!

    Your dupe examples are good alternatives but it’s very important you mention why they are cheaper. I determine what I buy from the ingredient lists. Sure baby oil is going to give you the same look as the expensive Fenty glow oil but one is mineral oil which clogs pores and one is made with oils that nourish your skin. Dupes are good in a situation where you will only use once or twice versus everyday.
    Pigmentation and lasting power aren’t the same. Cheaper product will likely fade quickly and/or clump.
    However, there are some high priced skin care products out there that aren’t worthy of their price tag. For example; La Mer. You are only paying for the brand. They use mineral oil in their products!
    Be diligent on researching your products and buy what will pay off in the long run.

    I don t think that for everyday make up you need such an expensive products, only if you work in artistic field or modelling and you make pictures every time!
