I don’t know about you, but I could walk into any given CVS Pharmacy and walk out having dropped $100. No problem. As much as I love a single luxe beauty product from a highend department store – you can absolutely find products at CVS that work just as well, (if not better) than major department store brands. There’s good stuff in there. Dermatologist recommended stuff—like, my dermatologist actually suggest cleansers, moisturizers, masks that I can buy for less than $15. L’Roche Posay, BioDerma, Carol’s Daughter and Burt’s Bees and so many others – that’s worth something, right?! I actually even had a beauty consult at my local CVS. At select stores, people can receive personalized consultations and product advice from Beauty Consultants. CVS, gettin’ fancy on us!
I have a special place in my beauty-obsessed heart for the one-stop Cosmetic Wall at CVS; making the hunt for these makeup dupes even more enjoyable and efficient. Hope you enjoy the list I put together down below!
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation for NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation
NARS foundation has a lot going for it with a natural-looking, medium to full coverage fluid formula that feels amazingly light on the skin…and a little goes a long way! L’Oreal’s Infallible is just as hardworking as the NARS foundation and provides fabulous coverage and longevity, at one-fourth the price!
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer for Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
The formula in Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer is different from other concealers because it doesn’t contain any oils or waxes and gives natural coverage. It uses an exclusive translucent base which feels so light on the skin and blends effortlessly.
NYX HD Finishing Powder for Makeup Forever HD Microfinishing Powder
The packaging is almost identical. When I found this I had to double take because of how similar they are. The NYX jar has a bit more product in it than the sample size of MUF does and the price is reasonable.
If you are concerned about the ingredients, have no fear!!! Both products contain 100% Silica Mineral Powder. NYX does offer this powder in different colors to match your skin tone but I just picked up the transparent one.
E.L.F. Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzer for NARS Blush and Bronzer Duo
Nars is arguably known for their gorgeous shades of blushes. E.L.F. has put out practically the same product that delivers just as much pigment and lasts all day long.
Covergirl TruNaked Roses Palette for Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
I absolutely love eyeshadows and the many looks I can create with them. Paying a week’s worth of chipotle burrito worth for one single eyeshadow palette can break anyone’s heart. Covergirl has an almost identical palette that you can use to create rose gold goregous looks.
L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara for Dior Black Out Mascara
I have been a Loreal Voluminous loyalist for years and years. I’ve actually tried the Dior mascara on one eye and applied Voluminous on the other eye for a whole day and asked people if they noticed a difference. Not one person could tell the difference, so the only difference was the amount of cash left in my wallet.
NYX Liquid Illuminator for Benefit High Beam
This has got to be my ultimate favorite dupe of all makeup dupes, the NYX Liquid Illuminator. The best part of this highlighter is that it’s exactly the same as Benefit’s ‘High Beam’ highlighter, but in a bigger, more compact tube. This is a makeup STEAL!
