We all possess a great desire to invest in expensive makeup, but most of the times it becomes difficult to rationalize spending out a major chunk of money merely over a small bottle of our desired high –end makeup brand.

Hence, this article here brings about a list of amazing low cost makeup dupes which marginally have some difference in performance and results compared to the high end make up brands. Are you ready to Splurge or Save?

  1. MAC Pro Long wear Paint Pot vs Maybelline Eye studio Colour Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Eyeshadow in Beige

Both the eye shadows are creamy and give a matte finish. MAC takes a longer while to crease compared to Maybelline, making it less durable. The two shades are exactly the same though. Not bad, eh?

  1. Bobbi Brown Long- Wear Eyeliner vs Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel

Maybelline’s Eye studio version matches up very similar to that of the Bobbi Brown eyeliner. Both have a similar brush applicator that gives a smooth finish and it feels as though you are using the same product.

  1. Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette vs L’oreal Paris Color Riche La Palette Nude

Indeed the Eye shadow palette from Urban Decay is unbeatable but the new L’oreal Paris Color Palette does prove to be a convincing substitute. Naked 3 provides 2 shades more than L’oreal , but L’oreal does provide shades that can be blended and mixed in order to get a clean and beautiful finish.

  1. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation vs L’oreal True Match Super-Blendable Makeup Broad Spectrum

Both the brands have foundations that are light and smooth on your skin. One of the added advantage with Giorgio Armani could be that the amount of foundation to be used can be controlled using the pump as it makes it easy to dispense the product where as the L’oreal foundation can be poured out straight from its bottle.

  1. Dior Diorshow Mascara vs L’oreal Voluminous Mascara

These two brand of mascaras cannot be distinguished on major grounds because both of them are very similar! Dior and L’oreal both dry quickly and do not produce flakes or clump up you lashes. Also, they are very smooth and can help to achieve an even application because of their tapered brush shape.
