7 Makeup Dupes for High-end products that are such a steal, it’s criminal
There is no denying that high quality cosmetic products do the job well, but the fact is that high end brands can also be costly. It’s nice to splurge on a holy grail product once in a while but committing to it can burn a hole in your pocket. Luckily, there are tonnes of dupes in the market that are great substitutes for high end brands! Here are 7 of the best dupes you should keep a look out for:
1) Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix vs Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick

There is no denying that Bobbi Brown is one of the best makeup brands in the market. Their foundation stick is light yet creamy and gives you a flawless finish. However, why splurge on a foundation stick when you can get a dupe for a fraction of the cost? Revlon’s PhotoReady Insta-Fix does the job as well as Bobbi Brown’s and is perhaps a good product to try out first if you’re not sure a foundation stick is your thing.
