There's nothing worse than picking up a couple of beauty essentials only to be confronted with an eye-watering total when you reach the checkout. So we've done y'all a solid and handpicked a bunch of cheaper options for some of the popular but pricy products out there.
1. Nudestix Nudies Bloom All Over Dewy Colour Blush vs Milk Makeup Lip & Cheek Blush
💰 Saving: $21.00
We're obsessed with cream blushes right now. They're super easy to blend and can be used on your cheeks, lips and eyes. Like the NUDESTIX Nudies Matte All Over Face Colour Brush & Bronze, the Milk Makeup Lip & Cheek Blush is super hydrating, blendable and buildable. The only downside is that the Milk Makeup cream blush doesn't come with a brush, although they're easy to blend in with your fingers.
2. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation vs L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Foundation
💰 Saving: $33.01
I have been using the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation pretty religiously for years, but I have to admit it is a little pricey. For a cheaper long-wear alternative, try the L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Liquid Foundation. Similar to Double Wear, this L'Oreal Liquid Foundation is easy to apply but offers a matte finish that won't budge even on the sweatiest of days.
3. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer vs Revolution Mattify Primer
💰 Saving: $31.00
Both the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer and the are designed to smooth and hydrate your skin. This will help even out your skin and give your foundation a silky base to settle into. The Revolution Primer also contains Vitamin E to hydrate your skin but dries with a matte finish to stop you from looking shiny.
4. Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Mascara vs Maybelline Define-A-Lash Lengthening Mascara
💰 Saving: $24.75
The Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! mascara is a go-to for many beauty buffs, but the Maybelline Define-A-Lash Lengthening Mascara gives it a run for its money. It uses a similar non-clumping formula, meaning you can still achieve super dark and long lashes without them sticking together.
5. Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer vs L'Oreal Infallible More Than Concealer
💰 Saving: $24.75
The Tarte Shape Tape is one of our favourite concealers but the L'Oreal Infallible More Than Concealer is a fab option if you're looking for something a little cheaper. It offers a similar level of heavy coverage, which is great if you're using it for contouring or concealing dark circles.
6. KVD Beauty Go Big or Go Home Volumising Mascara vs L'OREAL Voluminous Original
💰 Saving: $16.51
The KVD Beauty Go Big or Go Home is true to its name, with a super-black pigment and smudge-resistant formula that promises super voluminous lashes. But for less than half the price, the L'OREAL Voluminous Original increases your lash volume by 5X. It also uses panthenol and Ceramide-R to protect your lil' lashes and stop your mascara from clumping together.
