Some people prefer quality over quantity while some prefer the latter. When it comes to makeup, sometimes the price on a product doesn't equal a positive. In the world of makeup we have something called dupes. A dupe is the shortened version of the word duplicate or copy. There are several high end makeup products on the market that have dupes, the tricky part is being able to find the perfect dupe. Unless your money is long than makeup dupes can be a great alternative when you want the high end look for a budget price.
Thanks to the world of YouTube, several makeup gurus have created haul videos that compare and contrast high end makeup products and low end products that look exactly alike. A famous dupe is ELF Cosmetics "Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder" in comparison to NARS "Orgasm Blush and Laguna Bronzer Duo". The two look completely identical and you would never be able to tell one from the other unless you were to look at the price. Another familiar dupe is MAC Cosmetics "Diva" lipstick in comparison to Wet N Wild's "Cherry Bomb" lipstick. Two completely completely compatible lippies for two separate prices.
Makeup is supposed to be fun, not expensive. You don't have to be bourgeois to be glamorous. It's up to you, you can either break the bank or break some necks.
