    11 Drugstore Dupes To The Cult Beauty Products You See Everywhere

    For when you don't make bank but want to LOOK like you make bank.

    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.

    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.

    3. Anastasia Beverly Hills tiny brow pencil has been a cult favorite since its launch. For the same precise pencil tip to fill in feathered brow hairs, check out NYX for less than half the cost!

    4. Dry shampoo is a necessity for lots of women, so stocking up can be costly. Living Proof is one of the best, but you can refresh your hair just the same with Dove.

    5. A creamy concealer that wears comfortably without creasing can be a life saver for dark circles and surprise blemishes. NARS has one of the top-selling products on the market, but Maybelline delivers similar results.

    6. Creamy gel textures are incredibly hydrating and you can feel it immediately upon application. Belif Aqua Bomb is a top-seller, but for a similar texture that hydrates just as beautifully, try Neutrogena gel moisturizer.

    7. Armani's Eyes to Kill mascara makes lashes both long and voluptuous without feeling heavy. But it costs over $30. For something that gives you the same end results for less than a third of the cost, L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara is one of the best drugstore mascaras on the around.

    8. Hair masks seem luxe to begin with, but they're a great way to keep hair healthy and strong. Shu Uemura Color Lustre Brilliant Glaze keeps colored hair shiny and vibrant. Thank goodness Fekkai's Luxe Color Masque does, too, for under $25.

    9. Cleansing oils are such a luscious and gentle way to remove even the toughest makeup, especially DCH Deep Cleansing Oil. To reap these benefits for little less, try Simple Hydrating Cleansing Oil.

    10. Anti-aging creams can be some of the priciest products on the market. Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream is one of Sephora's best-selling wrinkle-fighting moisturizers, but is almost $100. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting uses just as effective ingredients for a lot less.

    11. BB creams are great for light, natural coverage that just helps even out your tone. Both Bobbi Brown and L.A. Girl have great options for a huge range of skin tones. The biggest difference is that one has SPF, and the other costs significantly less.
