The Best Drugstore Makeup Dupes

  1. Linda Lloyd says:

    I love the dupes posts especially as some of the lux products you feature are so much more expensive in Canada. So more of that please! Also, can you do a post on nail care and the types of artificial snails? I had acrylics but I needed to have them off for a surgery and now my nails look horrible. I’d like to try press ons but I have nightmares of the old 70s style like Lee Press Ons!

    • Jennifer says:

      glad you liked this one! I wear the ImPress nails ALL the time and they’re nothing like the old school Lee Press Ons – way more advanced. The glue on ones stay longer, but the sticky tab ones are way easier to apply and if they pop off there are back up nails in the box. And I keep a nail glue handy also to re-glue. But they look AMAZING like salon type nails!

    Jennifer, love these dupes! More, please!

    OMG I couldn’t tell the difference. Thanks for sharing your “Finds”

    • Jennifer says:

      I was even pleasantly shocked with how similar they were too when I had applied them side by side! Thank you Susan for the comment

  4. SC Lady says:

    Thank you, Jennifer. I always find your posts to be helpful. I would love to see some dupes on skincare for mature skin.

  5. Pam Mpls says:

    This was so helpful and fun! Thanks for doing all the research. I will definitely be buying some of these great dupes!

    Loved this post. My mother was in the business a short while and always laughed that the most expensive and the cheapest usually came out of the same vat. This post I’ll bet was very popular. We should definitely have more!

    • Jennifer says:

      you are definitely right that I’ve heard the same thing that many drugstore and dept. store brands are made in the same factories or at least owned by the same brands. I’m glad you liked this comparison post! I’ll def be doing more in the future

    The “dupes” are amazing but then you make everything look good. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Kerry says:

    Exactly what I needed! Thank you so much, going into Sephora or Ulta is very intimidating for this minimalist makeup wearing gal! Now I can use your list and feel confident!

    • Jennifer says:

      This is EXACTLY what I like to hear Kerry when it comes to me creating posts like this – I want all of you to have more confidence and fun with makeup shopping and application!

  9. Nancy says:

    Great post, Jennifer! I love experimenting with different colors and types of makeup, and trying out a cheaper dupe certainly helps my budget.

    • Jennifer says:

      I think most of us LOVE a good budget makeup product that performs like a prestige! That way we can spend more money on other items – like expensive groceries!!!

  10. Barbara Lacy says:

    Thank you Jennifer for your Dupes. I am making a list. Please do this again.

  11. Nancy B. says:

    Yes, Jennifer, I would love to see more posts like this one. Thank you! I always get so many great tips from your posts!

  12. Jes says:

    Great post! Thanks Jennifer

    Enjoyed this post! I also like when you share what you are wearing. I loved the Free People blue cardigan! Unfortunately they were sold out of my size

    • Jennifer says:

      I wasn’t certain anyone cared about my fashion choices, ha! so this is good to hear Danielle! I’m sorry about the Free People cardigan – it’s amazing how quickly some items do sell out even though they’re in stock when I write them just a week out!
