7 Drugstore Dupes You Have to Try This Fall


drugstore dupes for fall

Fall.  Autumn.  Sweater Weather.  Holiday Season.  How many other words do we associate with fall?  Makeup.  Yes, makeup.  This is the season where brands come up with their new products and limited edition colors.  The limited edition and holiday special gets me every time. I think I have every limited edition, exclusive to Ulta sets from Tarte, Lorac, and Stila.  But before I head to Ulta or Sephora, I’m going to the drugstore and grabbing some of my favorite fall makeup and skincare dupes.

Drugstore dupes are the BEST!  You get so much value for your money.  Plus, you get to stay on trend without breaking the bank.

Drugstore Dupes: Makeup

1. Milani Spice lipliner  (Dupe for the MAC Spice lipliner)
Drugstore dupes Milani and mac Spice
Can you tell the difference between the two?
Left: MAC Spice     Right: Milani Spice
It’s the perfect dupe for MAC’s spice lip liner and it only costs $3!
The color is spot on but…
When you swatch the two lipliners, MAC is definitely smoother and longer lasting.
For the price, Milani is an fabulous option that has pretty good staying power and great color payoff! This might be one of my favorite all-time drugstore dupes.

The Perfect Dupe for The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Full Coverage Foundation

I have been in love with the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation for almost two years now.  It is still one of my holy grail make-up products.  Ever since I saw Jenn Im from ClothesEncounters mention this foundation in one of her favorites, I knew I had to pick it up.

Jenn Im’s style, makeup, and hair is ALWAYS on point.  So, I knew I would not regret this purchase.  Tarte’s Amazonian Clay foundation was the second brand name foundation I had EVER purchased.  About three years ago, I started playing with makeup and began using a ton of drugstore brands such as Covergirl and Physicians Formula.  I went through five compacts of Physician Formula’s organic wear translucent powder and I don’t even know how many Covergirl mascaras.

I wanted to see why people willingly shell out $40, $50, and sometimes even $80 for foundation.  After I tried the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation, I understood.  The Amazonian Clay foundation stays on your face- it does not fade or break up throughout the day, leaving you looking patchy and cakey.  Plus, the smooth, mousse like texture makes it easy to apply and blend all over the face and down the neck.

If you love the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation, then you will love the Ulta Double Duty Primer and Foundation.  It has a similar texture, application, and staying power as the Tarte foundation.  The Ulta foundation is only $5!  Plus, the Ulta foundation is oil free, paraben free, and fragrance free.  What more could you need?

To apply these two foundations, I love using my real techniques foundation brush.  The brush has a slightly dome shape with soft, thick bristles that won’t leave your face looking streaky.  It blends the mousse like foundation very easily and never makes your face look cakey.

Best Summer Makeup Dupes 2015

Best Summer Makeup Dupes 2014

Here is a list of some of my favorite summer makeup tools.  For the summer, I don’t like to wear heavy makeup.  I like to keep it pretty light.  I like moisturizers that hydrate my skin and won’t leave me shiny.  I love the Simple moisturizer because its just as creamy and light as the Bobbi Brown Hydrating cream.

I love using my beauty blender or real techniques sponge to conceal any imperfections on my skin.  I love my NARS radiant creamy concealer but it’s $28.  The Rimmel London Wake me up concealer is only about $10 on Amazon or ASOS.

I have loved the Naked palette forever and Loreal’s dupe is one of the best things ever!  The formula and the color payoff is great!  For $20, you need this palette!

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Cream $59- Anavita anti-aging cream $30 or Simple Replenishing rich moisturizer $10
