11 Drugstore Dupes To The Cult Beauty Products You See Everywhere

These dupes are the perfect money-saving answer to expensive beauty products.

It can be hard (impossible?) to justify spending $50 on a makeup palette. But you shouldn't have to and you don't have to. These dupes are low cost but high ~lewk.~

Even though the higher priced items usually mean higher quality, sometimes that luxury isn't in the budget, and that's just fine!

1. Urban Decay's Naked palette is a favorite among many for it's subtle but stunning earth-tone shades. But at $54, it's hella expensive. Luckily, L'Oréal's Colour Riche Palette in nude has very similar shades and it costs less than $15.

Get the Urban Decay Naked Palette from Sephora for $54.

Get the L'Oréal Colour Riche Palette in Nude from Amazon for $13.07.

2. An at-home facial is such a treat, but you shouldn't have to default on your credit card bill to enjoy one. As brightening as Drunk Elephant Babyfacial is for your complexion, you can get very just as smooth, bright and beautiful of skin for like a quarter of the price thanks to Avène.
