Why spend all your cash on high-end products, when there are drugstore versions for less?
These are my favorite drugstore mimics...
(Contact me and let me know what high end products you'd love to find a cheaper clone of. I'll search the drugstores until I find it, then feature them on this page in the future!)
Instead of Nars Orgasm blush, ($26) try Rimmel Mono Blush in Santa Rose, ($2.99). It's the same peachy-pink shade with a hint of gold. Also, try Cover Girl Cheekers blush in Rose Silk.
Instead of Lancome Juicy Tubes, ($18) try Cover Girl Wetslicks Fruit Spritzers ($5.50). The Cover Girl version gives tons of shine, flavor and a sheer color without stickiness. Brilliant!
Instead of Frederic Fekkai's Shea Butter Hair Mask ($22), try Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition 3 Minute Dryness Undo ($6.29). Both contain ultra rich shea butter and drench your hair in moisture. One just costs a whole lot less!
Instead of Make Up For Ever's HD Foundation ($40) , try Revlon's PhotoReady Foundation ($13). The Revlon does just as good of a job diffusing flaws and creating an airbrushed finish that looks flawless, even close up.
Instead of Lancome Absolue Premium Bx ($125), try Garnier Ultra Lift Pro Gravity Defying Cream ($16). Both products contain Pro-Xylane, a sugar molecule derived from the Beech Tree, which works to rebuild collagen and elastin and plump up the skin. Both products are also fantastic moisturizers. But with a difference in price like this for the same active ingredient, this is a no-brainer!
Instead of Bobbi Brown's Long Wearing Gel Liner ($21) or MAC's FluidLine ($15), try Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner. It's budgeproof, smudgeproof, and only $9.99!
Instead of dropping $32 on Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch Primer, spend $16 on Loreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting base and get pretty much the exact same thing!
