I lovelovelove myself a good deal. I am definitely not the type of gal who finds herself making spontaneous $100 purchases on sephora.com late at night. Especially when it comes to beauty products, if I am going to drop a pretty penny, you better believe I am doing my research first. Because I am all about that bargain, I decided to put together my favorite drugstore beauty dupes to share with you all. Why spend a couple dollars extra for that “brand name”. The high-end products I am comparing range from brand names at the drugstore to pricey brands at Sephora. Let me know in the comments what your favorite drugstore beauty dupes are!
#1: Neutrogena facial lotion vs. Target’s Up&Up lotion:
I used to never have to apply moisturizer to my face until midway through college. Now that I live in Denver, I notice my face is a lot more dryer than usual so I’ve been incorporating my Up&Up Moisturizer into my every day routine. Now I don’t make a lot of money. I am sure that is loud and clear if you are an avid reader of Miss Olivia Says. So when I compare Neutrogena and Target’s facial lotion that is literally exactly the same, I am going to go with the Target brand because why would I need to spend $2 extra on the same thing but with a Neutrogena logo?
#2: Benefit They’re Real Mascara vs. Maybelline Falsies Mascara
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Benefit makeup. But when you’re on a budget, it definitely is not smart to drop $20 on a mascara when you can pick up a tube of good ol’ Mayebelline Falsies for less than half the price. I have lost track of how many Mayebelline Falsies mascaras I have gone through because it is that good of a mascara.
#3: Clinique Chubby Stick vs. Revlon Color Burst
These two products are literally the same, expect one is $17 and the other is $8.99. Can you guess which is which? Clearly, anyone in their right mind would opt for the $8.99 Revlon Color Burst lip color. I remember when both these products came out I of course got myself a bold pink Revlon Color Burst and it lasted me forever! Not only was it worthwhile, the formula was also very moisturizing and it doubled as a lip balm.
That is all for this post. I think I will make this concept a series and bring y’all three drugstore beauty dupes here and there. I hope you all have a great Monday!
