Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting Blush vs Pur Château Cheeks Powder Blush 

These two formulas are so similar, however upon purchasing both, I actually find that Pur Cosmetics drugstore brand is actually far more pigmented, lasting longer throughout the day and requiring less product to leave my cheeks rosey. Too Faced Love Flush retails for $32 CAD while Pur Cosmetics retails for $12 CAD at any Shoppers Drugmart or Wal-mart in your area!

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer vs Nyx Matte Bronzer

This is my absolute favourite dupe! For years I refused to try any bronzer besides the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil which retails for $38.00 CAD. Upon trying NYX Matte Bronzer (because why not it’s only $9!) I fell IN LOVE! The formulas are identical, perfect pigmentation and they come in the exact same shade. Save yourself almost $30 and opt for NYX.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz vs NYX Micro Brow Pencil

I recently went on a quest to find brow products for a decent price and amazing quality for makeup clients. I love the simplicity of the Brow Wiz ($27 CAD), so I was ecstatic when I came across the Micro Brow Pencil ($12) while looking for something more affordable for buying in bulk.
