(SPOT.ph) Being a makeup junkie means always being on the lookout for great products at even greater prices. While you might have already stocked up on all the must-haves for your makeup kit, there’s no harm in trying out other products that are easier on the pocket but deliver the same payoff. Here are a few options!
PhotoReady Insta-Fix Makeup from Revlon (P725)
Dupe for: Skin Foundation Stick from Bobbi Brown (P2,350)
Both products from Revlon and Bobbi Brown make applying your foundation as easy as ever. While the Revlon stick may be a bit heavier than Bobbi Brown's weightless formula, they both help control oil and they last
Fit Me Concealer from Maybelline (P299)
Dupe for: Radiant Creamy Concealer from NARS (P1,615)
The NARS concealer is known for its buildable coverage that covers your blemishes while hydrating your skin thanks to its creamy formula. Maybelline's concealer gives the same coverage and benefits. You can also use it for highlighting!
Miracle Complexion Sponge from Real Techniques (P340)
Dupe for: Beautyblender from Beautyblender (P1,005)
Shelling out a thousand bucks for a small sponge is guilt-inducing—even if it is a makeup gamechanger like Beautyblender. Real Techniques gives you a cheaper option with a sponge that applies and blends foundation just as beautifully.
Dupe for: Brow Wiz from Anastasia Beverly Hills (P1,400)
NYX’s brow pencil makes a good substitute when you can’t get your hands on the always sold-out Anastasia brow products. The thin applicator gives the perfect definition to your arches and the
Lash Sensational from Maybelline (P299)
Dupe for: Roller Lash from Benefit (P1,400)
Benefit’s Roller Lash became an instant hit for those who struggle to keep their lashes curled. The Lash Sensational mascara from Maybelline features a wand that’s shaped almost exactly the same as Benefit's, which is why it provides the same lift and prolonged curl for your lashes.
Wisp Super Shock Highlighter from Colourpop (P650)
Dupe for: Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter from Becca (P1,943)
The best-selling Becca highlighter is basically a spotlight for your skin because of the pearly finish it gives off. You can get the same glow from TheBalm’s highlighter, which you can also use as a shadow and shimmer for a look that's lit.
Mega Last Lip Color in Stoplight Red from Wet n Wild (P299)
Dupe for: Ruby Woo Lipstick from MAC (P1,050)
Classic red lips never go out of style, which is why MAC’s Ruby Woo has always been a favorite. But if you’re looking for an alternative, Wet n Wild’s Stoplight Red shade is a great option that achieves the same color payoff.
IT Palette in Nude from Sephora Collection (P1,642)
Dupe for: Naked Palette from Urban Decay (P3,695)
Urban Decay’s Naked practically set the standard for eye shadows everywhere. But we’d like to think that Sephora’s IT Palette lives up to it with their matte and shimmery shadows that are almost an exact match in color.
Ultra Matte Lips from Colourpop (P270 to P500)
Dupe for: Lip Kits from Kylie Cosmetics (P2,700 to P3,000)
It’s been an open secret for a while that Colourpop is the same company behind Kylie’s infamous Lip Kits. That’s most likely why they have almost the same shades, coverage, and finish—for a fraction of the price.
Infallible Setting Spray from L'Oréal Paris (P600)
Dupe for: All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray from Urban Decay (P1,995)
Urban Decay’s Setting Spray is the certified holy grail of all setting sprays. But if you’re on a tight budget, L’Oreal’s Infallible Setting Spray can keep your look on-point the whole day.
