Splurge vs Save....

Splurge Products:
1 // 2 // 3 // 4

Save Products:

 I think my favorite drugstore brand would have to be NYX. Mainly because of the quality and of course, the price but they're also cruelty-free, which is huge.

Although I prefer stores like Sephora and Nordstrom to shop for makeup, I don't have anything against drugstore brands because more than likely, the inexpensive brands are a branch off of a higher-end brand, just at a lower price point. For instance,  Estee Lauder is a parent company to MAC and Bobbi Brown among many other top-selling, high-end brands. So would you be totally surprised if I said that both Urban Decay and NYX were owned by LO'real? It's true! And that would probably explain why I found an exact dupe for a product that costs 4x as much!  
So here are a few other dupes I found while searching around Ulta:

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara is a complete dupe of the 
MAC Pro Longer Brow Gel. The wand is just slightly bigger on the NYX gel
 but they wear almost identical and the color is a perfect match.
| $7 vs $17 |

NYX HD Concealer is a really close match to
 Urban Decays Naked Skin Concealer. Even the color range
is almost identical.
| $5 vs $28 |

NYX Dark Circle Concealer is a spot-on dupe of the
Becca Concealing Creme. It has the exact same texture and covering power
and of course, it's over half the cost.
| $6 vs $32 |

NYX Matte Bronzer is even packaged like Bobbi Brown's
matte bronzers that are currently $42! The one from NYX at Ulta - only $9.



If you have any good dupes that are your favorite, I'd love to hear about them!
