While splurging on high-end makeup every once in a while can be a fun treat, what’s even better is finding a similar product for half the price. Here is how you can save some serious cash by swapping some of your favorite high-end foundations for these amazing yet affordable dupes.
Here are seven popular high-end foundations and their affordable dupe:
Dupe: Milani Conceal + Perfect
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Price: Rs 4500/-
Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation Price: Rs 1800/-
Currently, one of the most popular (and for good reason) affordable foundations is Milani Conceal + Perfect. This foundation is creamy, thick but not cakey, and personally my current favorite. The formula is very similar to the Born This Way foundation, at a much better price.
Dupe: Revlon Colorstay
Estée Lauder Double Wear Price: Rs 5200/-
Revlon Colorstay Price: Rs 1900/-
If you want a foundation that’s going to last you all day and night, but you don’t want to splurge on an expensive product, Revlon Colorstay foundation is the one for you.
MAC Studio Fix Price: Rs 4000/-
NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Price: Rs 1300/-
For all the powder foundation lovers, I didn’t forget you. As a loyal MAC Studio Fix powder user for years, I’d never found a good quality powder foundation that isn’t cakey….until NYX came out with their Stay Matte But Not Flat line. Save Rs 2700 and buy that cute top you’ve been eyeing, all while your makeup is perfect and matte.
Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation Price: Rs 5300/-
LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Illuminating Foundation: Rs 1300/-
The MUFE HD foundation has been a fan favorite for countless years now, with the foundation promising a picture perfect face every time. LA Girl has come out with a similar HD foundation that’s definitely worth trying out.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Price: Rs 8000/-
L’Oréal True Match Lumi Foundation Price: Rs 1750/-
For all you bougie girls that use the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, I’m sure it’s worth every penny (Kim K also swears by it). But for those who don’t want to spend Rs 8000 on it, the L’Oréal True Match Lumi Foundation is a pretty close substitute.
MAC Studio Fix Fluid Price: Rs 3700/-
Masarrat Misbah Silk Foundation Price: Rs 1800/-
MAC’s Studio Fix Fluid is most MUA’s favorite for shaadis and other formal events since it has such high coverage and lasts all day. However, Masarrat Misbah Silk Foundation is a great dupe for it and readily available all over Pakistan — for half the price.
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick Price: Rs 5700/-
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Stick Price: Rs 1699/-
For all the stick foundation lovers, I’m sure you’ve heard of Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Stick. If you don’t want to splurge on a high-end product, Maybelline’s Fit Me Foundation Stick is a great substitute for a great price.
