Which one are you?
I'm a bargain type of person. It feels way better to get as much (or in most cases more) for a cheaper price. I don't know about you guys but for as long as I can remember, I'd always feel guilty for splurging on department store makeup and i still do today. When I first started liking makeup I thought high end was the only was to go, in fact i spent $90 on 3 things at Dior once... (that still haunts me today). What really bugs me about that is I don't even use the 2 eyeshadows i got... Pretty much everything that I've spent a lot of money on, I end up hating. Is anyone else like that??
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to own a Nars blush, or Urban Decays Primer Potion, but i feel like I'd just end up returning them since i can get a good enough (to me at least) dupe at elf or somewhere haha. I'm so cheap, but its so much more rewarding for me to find a cheaper, just as good product to replace those cult classics everyone loves. Not to mention, i get to share my finds with you and we all save money. :)
I thought this would be a good chance to share with everyone some cheap alternatives of some favorite products. (alternatives, not dupes)
Not all of these products will necessarily work for you as they do for others, same goes for the higher end products. Everyone is different.
