Even if you’re a makeup geek or not, finding a good makeup is always a quest. I could splurge when it comes to makeup but there are these days when I’m tight on my budget and also don’t want to go towards unbranded makeup. I know this whole situation is relatable to you, therefore, I’ve done some research on good dupes of high-end makeup brands which are easy to find in Pakistan, and therefore, you might also save some from shipment charges.
NARS radiant Foundation v/s Maybelline Fit Me foundation:
A good foundation which could cope up with the humidity of Pakistan is all we need and NARS came up with this amazing foundation which is light on weight and gives amazing coverage but costs 5000rs and is also hard to find where Maybelline came up with Fit Me foundation in almost same packaging and is also light weighted but stays little less long than NARS but could last during your university or office hours and costs only 1200rs and is easily available everywhere in Pakistan.
NARS radiant concealer v/s Maybelline Fit Me concealer:
Both of these brands launched these concealers in almost lookalike bottles and stole our heart with their exceptional quality but again NARS concealer costs 3000rs and Maybelline concealer might need two coats for good coverage but costs 1000rs and is easily available in shops and online.
Benefit porefessional primer v/s Maybelline baby skin:
If you are someone like me who doesn’t really take good care of its skin and needs a good primer, these two primers in almost lookalike packaging came to save us and are easily available but Benefit Porefessional costs 1047rs and Maybelline baby skin costs 600rs. Now I could spend the saved money on food.
Anastasia Beverly hills contour kit v/s NYX contour palette:
An on point contour is all one asks for, ABH with its creamy powdered contour made us go Holy Grail! But costs 5000rs where NYX palette is a bit chalky but pigmented costing 2200rs is an affordable alternative. The best part is, both of them are easily available in Pakistan.
The Balm-Mary Lou manizer v/s Elf baked blush highlighter:
The Balm Mary Lou manizer blessed us with that popping highlighter costing 2400rs and Elf baked blush highlighter in moonlight shade is a perfect dupe for it in only 720rs, both products are available online.
MAC zoom lash v/s Maybelline volume express falsies mascara:
For getting those big voluminous black lashes these both brands have the same place in my collection. It is hard to distinguish which one is better. MAC zoom lash is a bit hard to find and costs 2925rs but Maybelline volume express falsies mascara is around 1000rs and is available to your nearest shop or online.
Kylie Jenner Lip kit v/s Colourpop ultra matte:
I like to wear brown nude shades for my lipstick and when Kylie Jenner lip kit was launched I was drooling over its shade Dolce K, but it always sold out. I might see it everywhere online but online shopping doubts and its price always stopped me but thanks to colourpop matte lipstick I found same shade in beeper and it’s super easy to find and costs only 1000rs/- where kylie lip kit costs almost 3500rs/-.
Hopefully, you’ll be slaying your makeup with these under budget products and the pricing may vary but now you’ll have an idea for your make up shopping.
