Here are five drugstore makeup dupes that are under Rs.799, all found in the Indian Market
Anastasia Beverly Hill Liquid Lipstick – Dusty Rose
Dusty Rose have several drugstore makeup dupes but the most prominent one is Wet n Wild’s Megalast Liquid Catsuit in Rebel Rose
Price: Rs.499 ($4.99)
‘Rebel Rose’ is a pretty pinky-dusty rose kind of shade. This shade is suitable for fairer skin tones. Fair skinned beauties will definitely rock this lip. This lipstick is very lightweight and applies very smoothly. The consistency is very creamy and then it turns matte.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette
Rose in the Air Palette has a very similar shade selection to Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. Many bloggers think Rose in the Air palette is a supposed dupe. I am very much happy with the shade selection, it contains mattes and shimmers and the pigmentation is to die for a 499 palette! It contains two transition shades, a cool toned and the other, a warm-toned (both matte), 6 matte shadows and two shimmer shadows.
It has a unique consistency which is dry and waxy and blends easily. It holds your brows in place yet it does not crumble or form lumps. I really do enjoy the formula. It takes a minute or so to fully settle into a smudge-proof formula. It has a smudge-proof and waterproof formula
L’oreal Paris Brow Artist Pomade 106 Ebony comes in a cute tub packaging which is similar to its gel liner packaging. It has a brush which is attached to the head of the cap. I really love the design, it is very much comparable to Benefit’ ka-BROW. The tub is made of glass-like material but it is definitely travel-friendly.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
One coat of this mascara gives you great volume, two coats make it better. I think two coats of this is enough for a ‘false lash’ effect. It definitely takes my lashes to paradise! It does not smudge at all and does not even clump after two coats.
I highly recommend this mascara, it is total value for money product and is a bang on dupe of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Furthermore, the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara cost US$ 24 (approx INR 1644), whereas Loreal Lash Paradise Mascara Cost only INR 750, which is almost half the price of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter – Opal
I’ve picked up the shade “Precious Petals”. It’s a very pretty champagne- golden kind of shade which is suitable for fair-dusky skin tones. This kind of shade is flattering on all skin tones. It gives you that dripping golden goddess kind of glow and is very blinding though
This highlighter has a smooth finish and is very blend-able.
