Fall hard for a high-end item and now struggling to support your designer beauty habit? Felix says to search the web for 'makeup dupes,' and you will find reviews of popular expensive makeup brands alongside the cheaper versions.
You can stretch your wallet even further by looking for generic versions of your favorite drugstore brands, which are typically displayed right next (and bare a strong resemblance) to them for increased visibility. You'll find many products are comparable to your everyday staples, if not even better. For example, we love these Exfoliating Cleansing Towelettes (pictured) from Target's extensive Up & Up line.
And don't be so quick to knock affordable originals. "I love Bonne Bell Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker," says Aragon. "It never costs more than $2, and it keeps my lips moisturized but also has a great tint. There are other great finds at drugstores too, such as makeup brushes and lip colors."
