If you’ve ever bought an expensive beauty product—and by expensive, we mean something you stalked and obsessed over for at least two weeks before finally mustering up the courage to spend a dumb amount of money on it—you probably understand better than anyone the nuances of a love-slash-hate relationship. Better than sex mascara dupe soft pink, iridescent blush is infused with flecks of gold and bronze, giving you the same incredibly sexy, just-fooled-around flush that made Nars Orgasm so iconic.
Smashbox’s cult-favorite primer, giving it the same silky-smooth staying power at a quarter of the cost. Similar to the super-hydrating Giorgio Armani Silk Foundation, this lightweight liquid foundation is made with 40-percent pure water, meaning it will lock in hydration for a smooth, dewy finish. Dust this sheer, talc-based powder over your T-zone to stave off midday shine just as well as the cult-favorite Laura Mercier setting powder. Just like Too Faced’s best-seller, this carbon-black mascara has an hourglass-shaped wand that grips literally every single lash for hardcore volume and length. This matte bronzer is super blendable and finely milled, just like Benefit’s iconic Hoola bronzer, making it easy to contour your skin without leaving any harsh, obvious lines. This carbon-black liquid liner has an ultra-skinny, felt-tip brush, making it easy to swipe a bold line across your lash lines. Not only is it the best drugstore dupe for Kat Von D’s liner, but it also truly doesn’t budge or flake.
If you’ve used Ruby Woo, you know that its key feature is its true-redness. Not orange-y red, not purple-y red, but true, true red. And trust us when we tell you that Wet n Wild—yes, Wet n Wild—hits the mark so closely with this blue-hued lipstick that we feel like we’re cheating on M. Then you clearly aren’t part of the huge community of cult-followers who swear by this champagne-hued luminizer as a total Becca dupe.
