Cheap Swaps for High-End Makeup
Think you need to pay $30 or more for a decent blush or mascara? Not with these cheap makeup picks that work just as well as high-end beauty products
The bargain: L'Oreal Paris Colour Juice Sheer Juicy Lip Gloss, $6
Money saved: $12
Why you'll love it: "L'Oreal Colour Juice Lip Gloss is just as good as Lancome Juicy Tubes," says New York City makeup artist Rachel Wood. "It's great because [L'Oreal] has a great variety of colors and the same amount of high shine as its rival." I guess we shouldn't be too surprised by this -- L'Oreal and Lancome are part of the same corporation. Maybe they use the same formula?
Oh, and in case you were curious how much money you would save if you opted for all of these bargain buys over the splurges: $225.86. Pretty sweet, right?
