These Drugstore Dupes Are Just as Good as Their High-End Alternatives

Drugstore dupes are big business. There's nothing quite like the smug satisfaction of stumbling across a high-street makeup buy that doesn't just look like your favourite high-end product but acts like it too. And thankfully, as affordable brands clock on to the fact we want harder-working products at lower prices, brilliant dupes are becoming more and more common.

Know where to look and you'll find foundations that are just as dewy as the best-selling beauty hall brands. There are liquid eyeliners that swipe on just as smooth as even the most expensive alternatives, and highlighters that impart a very similar kind of lit-from-within glow as ones with a price tag twice the size.

But to find them, you're going to need a hand: We've compiled a list of our favourite drugstore dupes that live up (and in some cases surpass) their idolised luxury cousins. Click through to the gallery below to discover the affordable alternatives that fill the makeup bags of the Byrdie editors.
