Real: $385, Macy’s Dupe: $19.95, Gabriel Brothers
Real: $16,000 Dupe: $10, Burlington
Not going to lie, I would love one of these. Ever since that picture of Kylie Jenner wearing a stack of these on her arm went viral, this bracelet became more of a status symbol than a token of love. Now you can have people fooled into thinking you’re a thousandaire, as long as you don’t mind that the shipping from China takes a while.
High Beam has always been a staple in my makeup collection, but one time when I was short on cash, I purchased the NYX version and was actually very impressed. As you can see, I swatched the two next to each other. The one on the LEFT is Benefit and the RIGHT is NYX.
5. Motive’s “Mavens” Contour Palette
Motives is a makeup company that gained fame for their 3D Fiber-lash mascara as well as their emphasis on contouring and facial sculpting. Now, you can have motives-like results for less than ½ the price. Don’t let the price and flimsy packaging fool you: the makeup was actually of nice quality. Beauty Treats also has other good-quality dupe products, such as a dupe of the popular Coastal Scents Palette.
6. Urban Decay Naked Palette
Real: $48.00, Sephora Dupe: $30, Sephora
7. Nars Orgasm Blush
If you have ever been curious about how the infamous Nars orgasm blush would look on you, you can try it out for much less with the Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Peach Satin. The swatch on the LEFT is Nars, and the one on the RIGHT is Maybelline. The Maybelline one is a bit brighter than the Nars product, however
8. Make Up Forever Face and Body Foundation
Makeup Forever’s face and body Foundation is probably the best foundation I have ever used, and when I tried the Maybelline FIT ME! Line of foundation, I was surprised how much it resembled Make Up Forever’s.
9. Moroccan Oil Hydration Crème
Found hidden in the haircare section, it comes in a little, red packet. It works wonders just as the Moroccan Oil brand does. Aside from being only $1, the best part is it also smells exactly the same as the Moroccan Oil version.
10. OPI Tasmanian Devil Made me Do It
In case you are interested in just saving a few bucks here and there, Revlon makes almost an identical dupe of OPI’s Tasmanian Devil Made me Do It.
What I’ve learned in my fashion experience, is that bags that are super popular for a few consecutive years, once they are out they are out. I have termed these “fad bags”, Kathy Van Zeeland bags, those Coach ones with the C’s all over them, the quilted Chanel bag that every 9th grader once carried, the Juicy Couture velour satchel with the bows, and fanny packs fit into this category. I consider this one to be one of those as well. While it is the hottest trend now, in 2 years if you are still rocking this people will think you need to get with the times. Now, if you pay $75 instead of over $300, you wont feel so guilty about retiring it.
