Drugstore makeup isn’t always cost efficient. If darker, curlier lashes are your beauty goal, chances are bareMinerals’ Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara has shown up in your recommendations before. Its product page boosts its lifting and curling power, and promises to reduce clumps. Beauty blog Makeup and Beauty shared their experience using the mascara and noted that, for its price tag, the mascara smudged easily and didn’t last long.
Lifestyle blog The Everygirl recommended two cult favorite mascara dupes that lift your lashes at a cheaper price: Covergirl Exhibitionist and L’Oréal Lash Paradise. Elite Daily co-signed these alternatives, which are both a fraction of the cost of bareMinerals’ mascara.
Another popular product you’re being overcharged for is L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel. Though the brow gel has a 4.2 rating on Ulta and boasts positive reviews, the brand has more inexpensive alternatives. In its place, pick up their Plumper Brow Gel Mascara, which Insider rated as their number one drugstore brow gel because of how natural it makes your brows look. Good brows don’t have to cost you.
