The MAKEUP DUPES List. Verified Drugstore makeup dupes that I love and use. Also, this list of drugstore makeup dupes contains unverified Dupes that I have gathered from across beauty blogs and by watching YouTube.
e.l.f. cosmetics and Makeup Revolution put out a lot of products that are dupes on purpose. Other dupes are discovered by accident and go viral.
This list is geared toward older women, but dupes are dupes! Save money whenever and wherever you can. (updated Jan 2023)

Foundation Makeup Drugstore Dupes
Please take these foundation dupes with a grain of salt. Often, the fragrance is off. Or the undertone. Drugstore foundations rarely come in as many shades as high end foundations. But I like to try them anyway. You can save some real money this way. I like to use the Makeup Dupes List as a starting point for shopping for foundations at Walmart or Ulta.

L’oreal Infallible Fresh Wear 24 Hour Foundation OR Revlon ColorStay Full Cover Makeup OR

Some products are just so good you can’t find a drugstore makeup dupe for them. But whenever I can, I like to save money with makeup dupes that are cheap but just as good as high-end. I hope my little makeup dupes list helps you save some money too!
