More expensive doesn't necessarily mean better. Here are 3 quick dupes that are tried and true!
ONE: This is my all time favorite dupe ever! If you love the look of glowy cheekbones and brow bones that you get with The Nars Multiple, in Copacabana, which goes for about $40 then try, Wet n Wild Highlighter, in, When The Nude Strikes. It only costs around $4 and the formula glides on creamier. The fact that it's rounded makes application easier as well, and it has amazing lasting power. Apply under brows, down center of nose, on tops of cheekbones, center of chin, in the bow of lips and dab a bit over lipstick or gloss in the center of the bottom lip for an all over amazing glow, (blend with finger).
TWO: Honestly, I didn't see what all the fuss was about Too Faced Cosmetics, Better Than Sex Mascara, that retails for around $28. I thought, 'this is just okay'. Soap & Glory's, Thick & Fast Mascara, only costs around $10 at Target and 2 quick coats are like instant falsies. Va va voom.
THREE: I swear this is not a photo of the same shoe. The J Crew flat is on the left and is around $80 at their Factory Store. The Target flat on the right is $22.99. As far as wear and tear, I'm sure the J Crew flat would beat the Target brand, but if you aren't doing a lot of walking I think the Target dupe is a steal.
