There’s a lot of good reasons to not want to spend an arm and a leg on cosmetics. Whether you aren’t convinced the look is “you” yet, you don’t think you’ll use the product that often, or you are simply looking to save the money, a “drugstore” product may be a great way to go, darlings.

Designer products are obviously beautiful, but there are plenty of “drugstore dupes” to get similar looks at a fraction of the cost. Here are some top-selling designer cosmetics and drugstore finds for you to consider to get the look.

Urban Decay and Wet ‘N Wild 



Urban Decay Naked3 Palette and Wet ‘N Wild Eyeshadow Palette in Nude Awakening

Wet ‘N Wild’s palette has a lot of similarities to Urban Decay’s third version of the Naked palette. Both sets feature eyeshadows with pink undertones in several of their shades.

Buy it here: Urban Decay Naked3  $54 | Sephora
                         Wet ‘N Wild Palette in Nude Awakening  $6.99 | Walgreens


Laura Mercier  and e.l.f. Studio



Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder and e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder

Setting powder is applied after your makeup is complete to give it a matte look. The powder absorbs oil to reduce shine throughout the day. Laura Mercier has one of the top-selling setting powders in the business, but e.l.f.’s costs less than a fourth of the price of Laura Mercier’s and gets rave reviews. For a less than fourth of a cost it might be worth it to see if e.l.f.’s works for you.

Buy it here: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose setting powder $38| Nordstrom
                         e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder $6 | Walgreens

Tom Ford and L’Oreal Paris


Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Nude Dip and L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Dual Effects Eyeshadow in Perpetual Nude

The colors that make up Tom Ford’s eye color quad in Nude Dip are stunning and versatile, but L’Oreal Paris has almost the same look with their four shadow set in Perpetual Nude. Each palette features complimentary eyeshadow shades designed to achieve multiple looks including a smokey eye.

Buy it here: Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Nude Dip $85 | Bergdorf Goodman’s  L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Dual Effects Eyeshadow in Perpetual Nude $8.99| Target

Too Faced and Rimmel London


Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and Rimmel London Retro Glam ScandalEyes

Both Rimmel London Retro Glam ScandalEyes and Too Faced Better Than Sex are black mascaras that are meant to volumize, but the dupe is really in the brush. Both mascaras feature an hourglass shaped brush that is supposed to achieve maximum volume and coat the lashes.

Buy it here: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara $23 | Sephora
                         Rimmel London Retro Glam ScandalEyes $5.99| Ulta

What do you think, dear readers? Are you going to go designer or try the dupe?
