    31 Affordable Beauty Products From Target That Give High-End Brands A Run For Their Money

    Beauty products that will make you feel luxe at only a fraction of the cost.

    1. Pacifica Drying Lotion Spot Treatment can be considered an excellent replacement for Mario Badescu Drying Lotion as it targets zits fast but is talc-free — good news for anyone who loves the Mario Badescu one but is concerned about talc.

    2. Knight & Wilson PurePlex Revolutionary Hair Repair System is a godsend for anyone dealing with damaged hair due to overprocessing. A great dupe for Olaplex, this rebuilds the hair's chemical structure while protecting it from future harm.

    3. Revlon Oil Absorbing Volcanic Roller picks up excess oil better than pricey oil-blotting facial sheets from Tatcha or Shiseido because it uses volcanic stone instead of paper. It's not only less wasteful, but also comes in the form of a much cooler tool that you can take with you anywhere.

    4. Rhyme & Reason Nourish & Gloss Conditioner delivers moisture and shine to dull hair but uses 100% recycled materials and 96% naturally derived ingredients, making it a much better choice than some of the fancier haircare brands out there.

    5. Spa Sciences MIO Microdermabrasion & Pore Extraction Skin Resurfacing System sucks out oil, dead skin cells, and other gunk from pores like other vacuum tools. However, it has an added function as the diamond tip improves texture like a microdermabrasion tool. You get more bang for your buck as it's pretty much like two skincare devices in one.

    6. Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic is an exfoliating toner that treats texture and makes skin smoother with glycolic acid. It's legit and so loved, that other brands try to dupe it instead of the other way around!

    7. ‎Honest Beauty Extreme Length 2-in-1 Mascara and Lash Primer has won multiple awards for its ability to lift and lengthen the eyelashes with clean ingredients at an accessible price point, giving more expensive faves from brands like Pat McGrath and Dior a run for their money.

    8. NYX Professional Makeup Epic Ink Waterproof Eyeliner creates the perfect cat-eye that not only lasts all day, but is highly pigmented. That alone makes it a much better choice than longtime favorites like Stila, which doesn't go on as dark in comparison — highly important for people who love their winged eyeliner.

    9. Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun Moisturizing Mousse blends in seamlessly when applied, resulting in a natural-looking, healthy tan. The formula is much easier to work with, unlike more of the high-end sunless tanning brands that have a thicker consistency (and a higher chance of leaving streaks).

    10. Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Beauty Sponge Makeup Blender is preferred over a Beautyblender by many makeup lovers due to its affordable price point and defined edges that work well for all types of makeup application.

    11. EcoTools Makeup Brush Cleansing Shampoo will make you question why you wasted money on $20+ brush cleaners. This shampoo uses gentle, paraben-free ingredients that will clean off all the makeup from your tools, leaving them looking brand new and feeling great on your face.

    12. ‎The Lip Bar Vegan Lip Liner can easily make your lips look defined and gorgeous with its buttery, easy-to-apply formula. It's not only half the cost of many high-end lip liners, but is also completely vegan. We know a winner when we see one.
