Do a Dupe!

Hey Divas and Divos!

We all like and wish for nice expensive things, right? But, on the other hand, if we budget conscious shoppers could get something nice and inexpensive that is the same or very similar to something nice and expensive we'd do it.  If you listened to our December 19, 2010 blogtalk radio show, you heard us discussing a "dupe" for Nars's Orgasm Blush. A makeup dupe is a product that is the same or very similar to another product.  Often times the dupe is a less expensive version of the other product.  On that particular show, we discussed Milani's Luminous Blush as a dupe for Orgasm.  We've found some extensive dupe lists on the web which we'll share with you. 

The best dupe list out there would probably have to be on temptalia.com.  This site has a searchable dupe list that matches products to a percentage of accuracy.  Definitely head to their site and check it out

In addition, MakeupTalk.com posts lists the following dupe lists:

MAC eyeshadows = Milani eyeshadows
MAC pigments = NYX Loose pigments
