Hi.

Welcome to our blog. We're twelve girls documenting our adventures in #yxe. Hope you have a nice stay!

Drug store dupes!

Are you tired of wasting your hard earned cash on high end cosmetics?  These products perform amazingly well but at less than half the cost. 

The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge is comparable to The Beauty Blender.  While I believe that The Beauty Blender is a better sponge some just can't justify spending over 20 bucks on a makeup sponge.  This is a great alternative. Real Techniques is available at London Drugs.

I love this mascara.  I like it even better than Benefits Their Real mascara.

Revlon Colorstay is a beautiful foundation that really does stay.  It's my dupe for Estee Lauders Double Wear foundation.  In my opinion it has a better finish too.

This is an old one but still a good one.  I don't know what to compare it to but its does the trick when you want to add quick colour to your legs without the stripes!

For less than 6 bucks this eyeliner brush performs just as well as Mac's 209 brush plus it's bent for an easy gel eyeliner application.  It's available at Target.

Since you're not perming your hair anymore those old perm papers you have kicking around make excellent oil blotting papers!  You can get a box of 500 for around five bucks.  I even dish them out to my clients for free( I'm a generous gal).

You don't need a fancy brow gel to keep those brows in place.  I can't tell a difference between this and any high end clear brow gels.
