Drugstore Dupes for Highend Products!

What is better than finding an awesome makeup product?  A great product for a great deal!  I love finding drugstore dupes for highend products!  I think that these products are a great list of dupes.  I’ll list them in the order that I would apply…

L'Oreal True Match Foundation | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comToo Faced Born This Way Foundation $39 and
L’Oreal True Match Foundation $9 

When it comes to high end foundation, it is usually the long lasting stayability where the drugstore is lacking. I feel like the True Match Foundation is very comparable when it comes to wear time.  True Match is not as immediately full coverage as the Born This Way, but it can easily be built up.  With 21 shades in cool, warm, and neutral, to choose from, the True Match Foundation makes it easier to find a true match to your skin’s shade. (see what I did there ;-))


tarte HD Setting Powder $33 and
NYX HD Setting Powder $10

While the tarte powder is slightly more finely milled, they both provide the same finish and lasting power.  The biggest difference is the $23 you’ll be saving!

Wet N WildComfort ZonePalette | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comUD Naked Palette $54 and
Wet n’ Wild Comfort Zone Palette $6
You have heard me sing the praises of both Urban Decay and Wet N’ Wild eyeshadows.  Now this is not an exact dupe since the UD has 12 shades and the WnW only has 8, but for the almost $50 savings you can definitely make an exception.  I love both the Naked Palette and the Comfort Zone Palette, but sometimes I find myself reaching for my WnW shadows over the UD ones.


Jordana Best Length Extreme Lengthening Mascara Black 0.34 oz | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comBenefit They’re Real Mascara $24 and
Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara $4

While my favorite of all mascaras is still the Maybelline Collosal Volum Express, this Jordana mascara is great as well.  I don’t ever see the point in paying a lot for any mascara because it expires and dries up so quickly.  These two have a very similar fomula and very similar brushes.  I actually find that the Jordana mascara is a bit liter so it doesn’t weigh down my already super straight sad lashes.

tarte Lip Surgence Lip Creme  $24 and
NYX Simply Nude Lip Cream Sticks $6.50
I feel like this is one of those products that the drugstore version is actually better than the higher priced one.  The tarte Lip Surgence tends to be a bit dryer and I find that the NYX Lip Cream has better pigmentation.

UD 24/7 Lip Liners $20 and
NYX Retractable Lip Liners $4.50

I am going to be honest, I don’t often line my lips, so I cannot justify spending $20 on a lipliner!  But $4.50, that is totally doable!  The NYX Retractable Lip Liners have a wonderful color selection, 19 shades, as well as all day wearability and staying power.

NYX Intense Butter Glosses | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comUD Revolution Glosses $22 and
NYX Intense Butter Glosses $6  

Don’t get me wrong, the UD Revolution Glosses are awesome!  I love the high pigmentation with the shine and glossiness (available in 14 shades). That being said, I almost feel like the  NYX Intense Butter Glosses are just as pigmented and just as glossy all for a third of the price.

Do you have any of these high end or drugstore dupes?  Or maybe you have both!  What do you think?  Which do you like better high end or the drugstore product?  I would love to hear what you think!

  1. The Definer shade on the lower right of the WNW Comfort Zone palette is a total dupe for MAC’s Blue-Brown pigment.


      1. Will do! Also their regular pencil lip liners I’ve heard are very similar to MAC’s. I have two NYX’x but no MAC so I can’t say for sure… but they do work and feel very nice!

  2. Great list – I agree, the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette is amazing for the price!
    I’ve yet to try that Jordana mascara but everyone raves about it!
    I haven’t used L’Oreal True Match Foundation in ages, it is a really nice foundation – lots of colours to choose from too!
    NYX Slide On pencils are a cheaper alternative to the UD 24/7 Glide-On pencils – even the name is similar!
    I heard Maybelline Fit Me concealer is similar to the Nars Creamy concealer – I’ve tried the Maybelline but not the Nars (yet) so I can’t verify!
