Mind blowing Makeup Dupes! My Favorite Makeup, Save vs. Splurge

Looking for some ways to save a little extra on your next makeup haul? Are you looking for that one great drugstore makeup dupe? Well I’m sharing dupes for some of my favorite go to products like Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer,  Too faced Chocolate Matte Bronzer, Nars Radiant Concealer, and more! 

Ya’ll I LOVE makeup whether it is drug store or high end. I often do tend to splurge for a lot of my face products because of my acne prone skin. But who am I kidding, if I find a good dupe that works well with my skin I am definitely all about that! Sometimes you are lucky when you find drugstore brands that perform just as great as the high end brands.  I am a firm believer you don’t need to splurge on everything if your skin can tolerate it. I often mix high and low end brands so I don’t have to compromise on looks or spend a ton of cash.  I also will use the dupes for the everyday where as I will use the high end for going out or special occasions.

I love, love both of these!! I posted in my IG highlight “Dupes”

SETTING/BAKING POWDER4Save WITH>> Make Revolution Loose Baking Powder

The is a lightweight loose powder that blends nicely and sets makeup for up to 12 hours. I’m not sure anything lasts 12 hours on me but it does have long lasting wear.   It comes in different shades, but I tend to pick the translucent shades since they work on all skin tones.  With that said the Make Revolution Loose Baking Powder  performs on par with LM.  It can be used both as a setting and baking powder extending the makeup wear. Definitely a product worth trying.


The Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is a full coverage satin finish concealer and is loved by many including me.  It works for both under eyes and little imperfections.  However, if you don’t want to spend the $30 dollars then the is a perfect dupe! This concealer is a little more on the dewy side but the coverage is very similar.  I have used this dupe for years! Looking for full coverage this is it.
