Drugstore Dupes For Your Favorite High-End Makeup Products

Shopping for makeup can be fun, but it’s not so fun when you checkout and realize your four products are going to cost you over $100. 

Are there some high-end products that are worth the splurge? Of course! But the reality is countless brands are incredibly overpriced. 

In fact, many drugstore brands (like Covergirl, Elf, NYX, Maybelline, etc) are making products that are just as good, if not better, than their department store counterparts.

If you’re looking to get the quality and look of department store makeup brands but at a drugstore price, you’ve come to the right place. Scroll down to see some drugstore dupes for your favorite high-end products. 

Maybelline False Lash Lift Mascara, $9

Say goodbye to your $30 Dior Diorshow Mascara and your $26 Better Than Sex Mascara, because this stuff is just as good. Get the look of flash lashes without having to spend over $10.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Aqua Beauty Blush and Bronzer, $6

If you’re a fan of the NARS Blush/Bronzer duo (which is $42, by the way), get this e.l.f set instead. This $6 blush and bronzer will give you that sun-kissed glow and it’ll also save you $36. Win, win!

NYX Studio Perfect Primer, $13

It can be really difficult to find a good primer, but this NYX Perfect Primer goes on smooth and silky. It is very similar to the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, but it is one-third of the cost.

Milani Color Statement Lipstick, $6

Beauty lovers are obsessed with the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk, but it is $34. If you’re wanting a drugstore dupe that looks just as good, go for this Milani Lipstick instead.

In fact, you could buy five Milani shades and it’d still be cheaper than just one Charlotte Tilbury lipstick!

Maybelline Lifter Gloss Lip Gloss Makeup With Hyaluronic Acid, $6.99

This lipgloss is not only extremely pigmented, but it is hydrating and gives your lips a fuller look. It is very similar to Fenty’s Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer, which is $19. 

L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup, $12.95

This L’Oreal foundation is a cheaper alternative to the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, which costs $64.

While the Giorgio Armani Foundation is pretty fantastic, we have to admit, it is hard to justify spending $64 on a small bottle of foundation. If you’re looking to save some cash, go for the L’Oreal stuff instead.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer, $9.99

Go for this Maybelline concealer if you already love the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer ($27). 

The Instant Age Rewind Eraser is fantastic at covering up dark circles and stays put all day. Loyal Shape Tape users may have a hard time converting at first, but your wallet will thank you!

Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer, $15.99

Finding a good bronzer can be very difficult. Not only do you want something that goes on well, but it’s important that it’s highly pigmented and doesn’t look sparkly or glittery. 

This Physicians Formula Bronzer is a fantastic drugstore product and probably closely resembles the Becca Sunlit Bronzer, which is $38.
