17 Makeup Dupes That Are Way Cheaper And Just As Awesome As Other Beauty Products

Think of, like, all the extra tacos you can buy now.

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us all about the good dupes, and they delivered! Try some of these much more affordable and just as effective alternatives to really popular beauty products.

1. You can literally get 14 Wendy's value menu nuggets with the price difference between Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge and Beauty Blender.

2. An extra $10 ain't never hurt nobody. Save it and try Elf Mineral Face Primer instead of Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer.

3. Never know when you're gonna need $21.51, so try Milani's Luminoso Baked Blush instead of NARS Orgasm.

4. Milani Eyeshadow Primer is $13.01 cheaper than Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and word on the street is it works just as well.

5. Save your $25 and one cent for a rainy day. Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid is nine times more expensive than L.A. Girl Pro Conceal.

6. Give NYX Kitten Heels liquid lipstick a try for $11 cheaper than Jeffree Star Redrum.

7. When that "available balance" starts trippin', save $11.51 with Maybelline Touch of Spice instead of MAC So Select.

8. Laura Mercier Face Illuminator is the T-R-U-T-H, but so is this $35 saving with Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer.

9. If you fill your lips with Melani Sugar Plum liner instead of using MAC Ariana Viva Glam, you could pocket $12.01.

10. You literally can't tell the difference so why spend the extra $13.00? NYX Soft-Spoken > Kat Von D Lolita II.

11. Perfect that wingtip with Wet n Wild's Proline Felt Tip Eyeliner for $18 less than Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner.

12. Come through, Colourpop, with the $5.00 eyeshadow in Bill. MAC's Quarry is $11 more.

13. Counting the Krispy Kreme doughnuts I'm gonna buy with the extra $20 I save from Essence Make Me Brow instead of Benefit Gimme Brow.

14. Great news for all the college kids who wanna wear lipstick but be broke as hell: B.H. Cosmetics Moody Merlot is similar to NARS Charlotte, and it's $24.00 cheaper!

15. Get the same slay as MAC Rebel with Wet n Wild Sugar Plum Fairy for $13.31 cheaper.

16. So in the event that you're not rollin' in dough and are cursed by student loans, save $32.01 with Rimmel London Match Perfection Skin Tone Adapting Concealer instead of YSL Touche Éclat.

17. Conceal those dark circles with Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix versus Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick, and save $18.37.
