Beauty on a Budget

For most of us, buying pricey, professional grade cosmetic products like MAC, Urban Decay, and MAKE UP FOR EVER is not a realistic purchase. These products have crazy expensive price tags on them and seem to only be available to small market of women. However, the biggest beauty secret is that many drug store cosmetics brands like Covergirl, Maybelline, and L’Oreal have products in their line that are almost exactly identical to these major brands in color, texture, and longevity. Below are some examples of drug store duplicates of professional grade make up products. These will be easy on your wallet and will still allow you to put your best face forward!
