There is no denial in the fact that most of us love luxury makeup products but sometimes our pocket doesn’t allow that and especially if you have many other expenses to take care. So what to do in that situation? That’s when makeup dupes come into the picture.
What are makeup dupes?
Makeup dupes are a similar product to your original luxury product but at a much cheaper price. They are usually similar in color/consistency and some ingredients to their luxury counterpart. And dupes are generally more accessible and might be better performing also sometimes.
Myth: If a product is more expensive, then it must have better ingredients or perform better. Believe me, a higher price tag doesn’t necessarily mean better anything. Sometimes it’s just the brand name or the packaging and design that we pay for. Now that you know what are make-up dupes and how useful it can be for some of us to save a lot of money, let us go ahead and read some of the tested and reviewed make-up dupes.
