Fabulous Beauty Look-a-Likes

There are knock-offs out there for almost everything on the designer market, so why shouldn't that include beauty products too? Since imitation is the highest form of flattery, it doesn't surprise me at all that a number of budget beauty brands have started releasing products have a striking similarity to higher-end items. Now we can stock up and experiment more since we're paying less! Here's a look at some of the less expensive versions of designer originals.

e.l.f. Hypershine Lip Glosses look a lot like Stila's Lip Glaze. They provide a similar super-bright, glass-like shine and condition your lips for hours. Both have a yummy scent, as well as that fun twist-and-click feature that brings the gloss to the applicator. You can buy e.l.f's glosses in 10 colors here for $1. Or you can buy Stila's version in 33 colors here for $20.

The Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips palette is very similar to the fabulous Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick. Both can be blended together as a bronzer if you sweep your brush across the entire brick or used as individual shimmery colors for your eyes and cheeks. Buy the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in the light-bronze Vegas Strip or the darker Sunset Strip here for $11.95. Or, buy the Bobbi Brown Simmer Bricks here for $38; available in Apricot, Pink, Gold, Beige, Rose, Brownie, Bronze, and Peony.

To see the last look a like

The new Max Factor MAXwear Lip Color really reminds me of the doubled-ended Benefit VIP Glosses. These gorgeous glosses are an easy two-step process, with a darker shade you apply first and a more sheer shade you can layer over. Or, wear them separately for even more variety. Buy the Max Factor brand in 26 shades here for $8.79. You can buy the three-wand Benefit set in six shades here for $26.

I've been meaning to make a comment about this for a while, but kept forgetting: I was very excited about trying e.l.f. last time they were featured here back in September. Well, I placed an order- after trying several times and just getting stuck by their slow page. I placed an order on Sept. 26th and it still hasn't come. I know they are busy but that is just obnoxious. I have sent about ten (literally) emails-because they don't give you a phone number. Finally, last Thrusday I got confirmation of shipment that could take up to ten days. I bought just about 1 of everything because it was so cheap but the hassle wasn't acceptable. Just wanted to give a heads up.
