Have you ever walked in a Target store to pick up a prescription and were told, “It’s going to be 20mins?” Well I have. So I find my way to the cosmetic section, but only look. I can't try the makeup on, and the price is wayyy lower than what I'm used to.
I was fed up, so I opened one. (Please don't go out and try this) I loved the coverage with the Maybelline foundation, and the consistency of Revlon concealer. I've been hooked since. I have created a list of makeup lines that are a dead look alike to MAC, but are surprisingly cheaper. To check out products from MAC that you can't find a look alike of:
This creamy shimmer eye shadow is great for an allover eye base, or it's great for highlighting underneath the brow. Check out the price!
MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study- $18.50
Maybelline Eye Studio Metal Color Tattoo in Barely Branded- $6
These two colors are pretty fun great for the creasy, but the L'Oreal one has more shimmer.
MAC Eye shadow in Satin Taupe- $15
L'Oreal Infallible Eye shadow in Bronzed Taupe- $7
MAC Russian Red is gorgeous. It's one of MAC's best lipsticks to me in the red family. Revlon look alike hits it dead on!
MAC Lipstick in Russian Red- $15
Revlon Matte Lipstick in Really Red- $8
This Shimmer highlighter is great above the cheekbone. I've just learned about Boots NO7 but its alternative to the Lustre drops by MAC.
MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel- $21
Boots No7 Skin Illuminator in Peach- $10
MAC Lipstick in Snob- $15
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack- $16
Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in Black- $8
Ok! Number 1 you can't match a better color. Cream blushes are great buildable products, especially if you’re new to using blush.
MAC Crèmeblend Blush in Ladyblush- $21
MAC Lipstick in Dark Side- $15
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry- $7
I hope this help you in anyway. Now go out and try a whole new world!!
