eyes lips face

its no joke that i love makeup. i love to try new brands and new shades and new products but i do have a few tried and true favorites that i absolutely cannot live without. that being said, i travel a lot because i’m in school and home is 800+ miles away. the past few times i’ve flown, my nars products have completely cracked and even the rubbing alcohol trick couldn’t bring them back to life. it broke my heart to drop a $40 dollar palette into the trashcan.

today on pinterest i found a master list of duplicate products and i’m reaching out to you guys for help. have you tried any of these dupes? please comment and let me know how you feel about them! spending the $3 dollars at target seems like an absolute no brainer but i would love to get some opinions as well!

these are some of the top products i found on pinterest and i want to hear from you! have you tried these? what’s your take on the dupe situation? here’s hoping i can ditch some of my regular products to save the frustration of a broken foundation and also keep some money in my pocket!! let me know what you think!

xo, Samantha

  1. My boyfriend actually just bought me the elf bronzer/blush combo last weekend, and I love it! Works great and it’s only a few dollars. I haven’t tried any of the other products you listed, but the elf makeup brushes are great as well.

  2. I had some expensive beauty products I had to get rid of as well… It’s so frustrating. I don’t have sensitive skin, so I found that even buying the drugstore brand (read: CHEAP) blush, bronzer, and lipgloss saves money that can be put towards other products you don’t want to compromise. I can’t live without L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Eye Shadow.
