Hi makeup lovers!

If you’ve ever been to Sephora, chances are you’ve realized how fast your total can add up.

Let’s face it, high end makeup products can end up costing an arm and a leg. But who wants to spend a fortune anyway if you can find budget-friendly makeup dupes that work just as good (if not better)?

Product #1: Christian Louboutin’s Lash Amplifying Lacquer
Dupe: Covergirl Lash Blast Volume

Christian Louboutin’s Lash Amplifying Lacquer is just about as high-end as it gets for mascara. Yet Covergirl Lash Blast Volume maxes out the volume of lashes just as great as any expensive product we’ve seen – and you’re spending about 1/8thof the price. It’s a win-win!

Product #2: Too Faced Born This Way Foundation
Dupe: Covergirl Clean Matte Liquid Foundation

If you’re looking for an oil-free base that doesn’t clog pores and stays on all day like Born This Way – well, Covergirl Clean Matte Liquid Foundation is the perfect dupe. Both products blur imperfections and have a medium to full coverage, but Covergirl takes the cake on this one. 

Product #3: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
Dupe: e.l.f. Poreless Face Primer

We’re loving this steal! If you’ve tried Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer, then you’ll LOVE e.l.f.’s Poreless Face Primer. When it’s applied before foundation, it keeps your makeup in place just as long as Smashbox’s Photo Finish primer. It’s even infused with tea tree, vitamins E and A for restorative and bacteria-fighting benefits. Yes please!

Product #4: Kat Von DLock-It Concealer Crème
Dupe: NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer Wand

If you haven’t tried NYX Concealer yet, it’s a must! It comes in 23 shades and stays on all day long, while still feeling light and breathable. Although the Kat Von D concealer is 24 hour wear and cruelty-free, NYX is the same for a fraction of the price! We know concealer is a must for many ladies – and NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer never fails us.

Product #5: Anastasia Beverly Hills
Dupe: NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick is loved for its long-lasting waterproof wear, but we’ve found a more budget-friendly product that lasts just as long. That’s right, NYX does it again. This has to be our favourite liquid lipstick makeup dupe ever. Seriously – we’re loving the shades it comes in and how affordable it is as well. It’s smear-resistant and stays on for hours.
