I am a victim of countless hours of Googling, YouTubing, and Pinteresting all of the best beauty products out there. And while we all want to flaunt the perfect makeup like Kylie Jenner, we don’t all want to flaunt the bill that comes with all of those expensive makeup products. So after some some research and trying them out myself, I have found some of the BEST makeup dupes out there that won’t break the bank but will still give you that Kardashian (orJenner) glow! So here we go!
1. Revlon ColorStay Makeup – Long Wear Full Cover Foundation
This foundation is SO good! So funny story…….a few months back, TJ and I went to Georgia for a friends wedding. The wedding was a ways away from the city, so the first day we stayed in Atlanta so we could do some site seeing and of course shopping. Coincidentally I ran out of my foundation that morning before we hopped on our flight, so I knew I had been wanting to try out Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation and was ready to splurge and I did! New foundation was purchased, we packed up the next day and headed 2 hours to where the wedding was. Come to find out I somehow managed to leave the BRAND NEW foundation on the bathroom sink at our hotel so I was makeupless, 2 hours from the hotel, and not happy. What did I do? Whipped out my phone and started researching dupes for my expensive foundation that I could get at CVS because that was about the only store that was even remotely close. That is where I discovered this little gem. The End. Ha! But the extremely nice hotel staff ended up locating my foundation and you could say that I was extremely relieved after just spending all that money on it! Amen for the good people in this world!
2. L’oreal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation – Medium Coverage Glow Foundation
I love the look of dewy. glowy skin and this foundation helps you achieve that. With a medium but buildable coverage, this foundation stays put all day long and leaves you looking like you just got back from the beach. Hello beach goddess!
3. L’oreal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator – Illuminating Powder
As I said previously, i’m a sucker for some glowing skin. Dab this powder on your cheek bones or all over for that healthy glow.
4. Brow Stylist® Prep & Shape Pro Kit L’oreal – Eyebrow Powder and Wax
I am super.duper.picky about my eyebrow products and was gifted this product from my mom to try out. I ended up falling in love with it and it is so easy to use. Use the angled brush with the wax to outline your brown shape and then dab the brush in the powder to fill in the spaces in the middle. This product looks natural and not too harsh.
5. e.l.f. Matte Lip Color – A Matter Lip Crayon
A matte lip crayon similar to the Kylie Lip Kit. Use it as a pencil to outline your lips and then fill them in. It goes on smoothly and lasts a long time. My favorite shade is Tea Rose. Did I mention they are $3?!
6. Maybeline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer + Treatment – An Under Eye Concealer
This under eye concealer hides dark circles and will make you look like you actually got 8 hours of sleep when you may have gotten 4 and are running off of a coffee IV.
7. Boots NO7 Stay Perfect Blemish Cover – An All Over Blemish Concealer
I swore by this stuff in high school and some of college and my friends constantly asked me to borrow this stuff because it was so good! If you are looking for an affordable but works like magic concealer then look no further!
What are some of your favorite drug store beauty finds?! I love hearing about those hidden treasures!
