There's a Dupe for Everything: Foundations

Foundations can be expensive. Especially good ones. Typically this is one item that I am willing to splurge on because I consider foundation to be part of my skin care routine. You want a good foundation because it’s the makeup closest to your skin. You know, the “foundation.”

The thing is, however, is that there are several fantastic foundations at the drug store. I found a dupe list on Pinterest and in the ultimate sacrifice have spent the last eight weeks trying them out. These are some of my favorites.


1. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk ($62) / L’oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup

Probably one of the most hyped-up foundations of all time is the Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk.  It’s $62 hyped up dollars. That’s alotta scratch. But, L’oreal is a perfect dupe–and dare I say I like it better.


2. Estee Lauder Double Wear  Stay in Place Makeup ($38.00) / Revlon Colorstay Makeup for combo/oily skin ($9.49)

Double wear has more color spectrum to choose from but, consistency and wearability are nearly identical.


3. NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation ($48) / L’oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation ($11.99)

 I actually prefer the L’oreal foundation. My skin is oily, so “luminous” is not really a quality that looks great on my skin. This gives a dewy look without all the “dew”.


4. MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation ($27) / Maybelline Fit Me! Matte and Poreless ($5.99)

Another one I prefer over the original. And it’s ummmm six bucks!


5. L’ancome Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact ($47) / L’oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion ($16.99)

The last one is a great dupe for a newer concept. The “cushion”. These are meant to be a more natural coverage and are fantastic if you are late for work because you’ve laid in bed watching Tivo’d Judge Judy all morning. #notjustmeihope

I hope these give you some great alternatives but, just in case don’t forget to save your receipts.
