The Best Cheap Makeup aka Drugstore Dupe

 

Confession: Alright! I’m a makeup hoarder. Okay, maybe that wasn’t exactly groundbreaking news but you see, I love makeup. I do not discriminate towards any certain price point. If it’s good stuff, I will sing its praises. In fact, I am a sucker for a good dupe, and will always choose it if it performs just as good as its high end counterpart.

As a self-proclaimed beauty addict, I’m not ashamed of my love for/need to try every new product out there, but obviously this addiction isn’t very budget-friendly.

Today, I’ve something special to share with you all. I’ve here what I think is the best cheap makeup. They’re everything you can find at your drugstore. From foundation, mascara, to eyeshadows and more! Keep your eyes peeled for what I’m about to reveal here. Who doesn’t love a good splurge…. but a good steal is the real thrill!

Best of all? This bad boy is under $10! Hurray!

I have this Color Tattoo Metal 24 Hrs Eyeshadow in Barely Branded for $7.67 at my local drugstore but you can find it at Walmart, mass merchandise retailers or drugstores.

The shade is gorgeous. It is probably my most favorite cream shadow I acquired from Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal line. You know me: nude crazed lol!

Speaking of pigmentation, this Barely Branded has good pigmentation and creamy. Layering is easy to achieve and color last all day with no creasing and minimal fading.

You can wear it alone as an eyeshadow or like me I used it as an alternative dupe for Mac Painterly. I haven’t a clue how Mac Paint Pot formula is like but I heard this Color Tattoo Barely Branded is a close dupe for the shade Painterly. If you have tried both, I would love to hear your comments below.

I’m sharing my thoughts on my experience with Maybelline Color Tattoo and not comparing the difference of the two for dupes. This is just my personal liking for Color Tattoo Barely Branded shadow which I think was a great find for me to use as eye base until I’m ready to invest on the paint pot by Mac. 
Here is the swatch out shadow directly from the pot. You can see just how pretty the pigmentation is. Amazing, right?

Since this is a dupe for Mac Painterly, you can easily save more than $15.00 easily. 
Overall, I am blown away by the gorgeous shade in Barely  Branded and I’v been reaching for it since I got it. Now that I know I’m in love with this dupe, I’ll be repurchasing this once I ran out. You can find this product at any drugstores. 
Off you go to your nearest drugstores to check it out for yourself and be sure to visit Maybelline website.
Got any beauty dupes you’ve found lately? Share your favorites with me in the comments below!
Thanks for stopping by. I’ll see you again on the next one! Ciao bella!

    I love finding great dupes. I’m trying to pay off debts so I don’t want to/can’t spend a lot of money on makeup I barely wear.
