And just like that…. it's Monday again!
I am all about saving money. Who isn't right? This is NOT a high end bashing post, because trust me I love high end products. I am also working on a post dedicated to high end products I think are worth the splurge.
There are a billion beauty products out there. Some have dupes and some nothing compare. I came up with 3 products I use daily that I feel you are 100% safe with the cheaper version over the expensive one. Now, obviously these are just my opinions, but I adore the following products and have used both versions. I feel the cheaper version delivers the exact same finish and results as the high end...
Face Powder- It's no secret, I have oily skin. The Rimmel Stay Matte powder from the drugstore is hands down my favorite. It gives my makeup a perfect finish, keeps me matte for longer than others and does not oxidize like so many other powders I've tried.
HD Setting Powder- These are used for setting your foundation and help to mattify the skin. I double up on trying to make sure my skin stays as matte as possible. I just dust this on my t-zone. No difference in these 2 products beside the price and amount. The $3 ELF one will last you forever! I bought mine at Target by the way.
Foundation- I am so glad I started using the Covergirl 3in1 foundation. I can't say enough good things about it. It stays put all day and I love the finish. And seriously, $9?! I like the MUFE Mat Velvet + too, but I don't see myself repurchasing it. The $36 price tag for the same result is not something I enjoy, $36 could buy me a new sweater or LOTS of morning coffees! This foundation applied with a flat kabuki brush, perfection.
Do you use any of these products? Any dupes you can suggest for me?
