Question: What are the greatest drugstore makeup dupes?
Answer: As appealing as it may be to splurge on makeup, you can absolutely find products at your local drugstore that work just as well, (if not better) than major department store brands. Sure, there may be some department store items that you swear by, but take a look at this list of drugstore alternatives and see if you can tell the difference:
- Revlon Highlighting Palette as a dupe for Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick
These two items don’t just look similar – they deliver virtually the same results. These products come in a palette with strips of different colors that can either be used separately or altogether. When applied, they help create a healthy, shimmery glow that isn’t overly-sparkly. They both come in peach and bronze tones depending on your skin tone and the type of shimmer you’re going for. For a regular day-to-day look, try peach tones. For summer months when you’re looking for a beach glow, try the bronze.
2. Revlon PhotoReady Eye Brightener and Primer as a dupe for MAC Prep + Prime
When looking at these two products next to one other, it’s extremely difficult to tell the two apart. Activated by “clicking” the bottom of the tube, the product comes out the top brush (much like a paint pen) and can be applied underneath the eyes, on the chin and above the eyebrows. Revlon’s formula is a bit thinner than MAC’s, but still delivers incredible results that totally brighten up your entire face.
3. E.L.F. Pink Passion as a dupe for Bobbi Brown Pale Pink
Pale Pink is arguably Bobbi’s Brown’s most popular blush color. While it’s a bit alarming in the package with its Barbie-like bright pink hue, you’ll find that once applied, it’ll give you the most amazing soft pink flush. E.L.F. has put out practically the same product that delivers just as much pigment and lasts all day long.
4. L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur as a dupe for Benefit POREfessional
Pore minimizing formulas are the latest trend, and there are many strong contenders on the market. L’Oreal’s Miracle Blur leaves an incredibly smooth finish on your skin and virtually erases your pores.
5. Maybelline The Colossal Mascara as a dupe for DiorShow Mascara
The Colossal has been a favorite of mine for years. It’ll give your lashes awesome length and volume, much like the beloved DiorShow Mascara.
6. L’Oreal True Match Magic Lumi Foundation as a dupe for Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Treatment Foundation
True Match has received raving reviews for its quality coverage, and the Magic Lumi line is nothing short of spectacular. This product uses light-reflecting technology to give off the most perfect sheen that’ll surely brighten your whole look.
