Best Budget Beauty Products
Sometimes spending more money on a product is not going to get your the best product. Most of the time you are simply paying for the name and not for the contents. Below are ten of the hottest beauty items on the market right now and the products that work just as good but cost half the price.
NARS Bronzer in Laguna vs Wet n’ Wild Bronzer in Princess
NARS Bronzer in Laguna costs about $36 while the cheaper version, Wet n’ Wild Bronzer in Princess, costs about $7 and is the same exact color and consistency.
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm vs Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm
Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm product costs around $16 but it also boosts the ability to moisturize like a lip balm. While that is a perk, a much better beauty product is the CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm, which costs about $7 and works just as well as the more expensive product.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil vs Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner
The Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil may be a wonderful product, but at $20 it is not worth it for a simple eyeliner. This is a product where you are definitely paying for the name. A better alternative is the Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner which costs $6 and actually lasts longer.
YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch vs Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer
YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch costs about $40, which is far too expensive for most people. A cheaper and nearly identical product is Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer.
MAC Fluidline Gel Eyeliner vs Wet n’ Wild Mega Eyes Cream Eyeliner
A lot of women like the MAC Fluidline Gel Eyeliner because it lasts all day, but for $16 there has to be a better product, right? There is. Wet n’ Wild Mega Eyes Cream Eyeliner is almost identical. The only thing is the container is terrible, so make sure your lid is screwed on tight or it will dry out. It only costs around $4.
Stila Eye Shadow in Kitten vs L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation vs CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation costs $60. No matter how great the product may be, $60 is too much to pay. Try buying the CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation. It only costs $10 and it works just as well. It goes on smooth and last all day.
Dior Diorshow Mascara vs L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara
The Dior Diorshow Mascara is a woman’s best friend because it can make your eyelashes look amazing and longer than you ever thought, but it costs around $25. Try buying the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara. One study showed that when both were applied, no one could tell the difference.
Nars Blush/Bronzer Duo in Orgasm/Laguna vs e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
The colors for Nars Blush/Bronzer Duo in Orgasm/Laguna and e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder are almost identical. While the Nars Blush costs around $41, the e.l.f. products only costs $3 and works just as well, although it is a bit messier inside the container.
